Because someone asked… making a cabriole leg, either round or squared isn’t nearly as hard as some think. First: make up your pattern…then draw it on the side and front of your leg stock. then proceed to cut it out ;)If you have a bandsaw, start on one side, leave a little (1/4”) uncut at the bottom of the cuts, so you’ll need to cut in from both ends. cut all of the cuts on this side like this, if there is an area on the “underside” (side a...
Thank you CFrye for directing me to terryR’s blog on how to make a split nut driver out of an old spade bit. I did not know what a split nut was a week ago, now I writing about how I made a dedicated tool for them. I followed terryR directions starting with cutting the top off a ½” spade bit. Then with a dremel and a small file I squared out the hole. I used a sharpie to color the area that I was working on just so I could see it a bit better. I had to thin out the bit as it was too wid...

It is a good idea to clean your blades every once in a while. I try to do it every 6 months or so, unless it needs to happen sooner. We had a rare winter rainstorm and it blew open my workshop doors, drenching everything, so I also cleaned the rust off of my cast iron tabletops. Enjoy! Clean Your Tools!
here’s a good video explaining how to clean cast iron tables.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9X9XlQMRKKE
The vacuum chamber is done, now we need to put in our piece of wood and weight it down, then fill the jar w/ resin. I use Turn Tex Cactus Juice. Make sure that the resin covers the top of the block of wood by at least 1/2” or more. Then pump the brake bleeder until you hit 25 on the guage. This will immediately cause the resin froth and foam as the air leaves the cellular structure of the wood and is replaced by resin. I like to leave it in the resin for at least 24hrs, longer ...
My Son got a lathe for christmas and has turned quiet a few bowls in the last month. He’s 14 and has picked it up pretty quick. He’s also been wanting to start making you tube videos, as he spends a lot of time watching other woodworker’s stuff. Im impressed at how good it turned out as it was his first effort at any kind of video production. In the 8 min video below he goes through the process from preparing the log (pear tree) to final sanding of the small bowl. htt...
Note: I was going to narrate this video, but I think it speaks for itself, and I really like how the music synced up to it, so I left it as-is. You can voice your opinion below about this different format. I ran a couple thousand feet of yellow pine through my planer for the past 6 months and it was time to rotate my blades before tackling an upcoming project using red oak. If you have seen my previous video about cleaning blades, you know how nasty yellow pine is. I took the opportunit...
