Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #6: week

05-16-2010 05:45 AM by a1Jim | 24 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #6 Let’s address some points regarding shaping the legs. When watching Charles, he showed a number of ways to shape the legs and the process included a number of different tools and techniques. The approaches I have taken include some of those tools and Charles’ techniques and some are my own experiments, to see what worked best for me. Ultimately, whatever works for you and gets the end results… that’s the best for you as long as it’s s...

Hocking Valley Corn Sheller Restoration #2: Building the frame

05-14-2010 06:37 PM by wdkits1 | 4 comments »

When I first took on this project I was going to use white oak for the woodwork, but after talking to the owner and getting permission to also do the original paint job I decided to go with the materials that were used in the original—maple for the frame and poplar for the box. After sizing all of the frame components to 1 3/4” x 2 1/8” and cutting to the proper lengths I began with turning the 2 small handles. There are a lot of mortise and tenon joints used to hold th...

Toot, Toot, Tootorial #2: How to make a whistle on a lathe

05-08-2010 09:11 PM by Mary Anne | 27 comments »

TOOT TOOT TOOTORIAL TWO This time, we’re going to turn a whistle on a lathe. I will be including some beginner level information since a few of the people who showed an interest in this project are novices. Besides, I think it is a great beginner project; it requires no parts or kits, just a chunk of wood, your lathe, your tools, and you. Please use all safety precautions you have available! I can’t think of any good stories to start with this time, so let’s get right toot it. Th...
