Looking to share and recieve information from owners of Harbor Frieght Lathes #2

08-19-2011 08:37 AM by DocSavage45 | 3 comments »

There are a few of us in LJ’s who are owners of the Harbor Frieght Lathes. My last posting was more than 2 weeks ago? Seems like yesterday. Have you experienced any difficulties with your lathe? How would you compare it to other laths you have experience using? What was the reason you bought your lathes? I have a small budget, and the features compared to the price were really good. I bought mine on-line and delivery was timely. some folks in our previous discussion have a store...

Lathe Projects #3: Natural Edge Ash Bowl #2

02-10-2011 09:30 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

The last post left with some work to be completed on the piece before dismount. I wanted to work the edge of the bowl a little thinner and I did some aggressive stock removal on the interior and exterior edge. This left me with the bowl here. and here I did a little more work on the side to remove the somewhat boat like appearance and give it more curve. I cut the bowl off the lathe and began running through the grits of sanding. I have more trouble spots to touch up on that wil...

Lathe Projects #2: Natural Edge Ash Bowl #1

02-09-2011 03:52 PM by David Craig | 9 comments »

I like to tease Mike (jockmike2) that he was worried about losing a student when I moved to a scroll saw project. When I showed him the progress on my scroll saw box, he gave me a piece of Ash that he cut from his firewood. A good deal of bark was on the piece and he suggested I try my hand at a bowl with a natural edge. This is my progress so far on this project. This piece was a little rough on the side opposite the bark side. I ran a chainsaw disk mounted on the angle grinder over it to...

No Hear? New Year

01-14-2011 10:07 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Sorry folks for the hiatus. Been a hectic beginning to the New Year but not entirely unproductive. Towards the ending of last year, an announcement was made that the company I work for has been sold to a company in India. This has caused me to reflect a little on life, evaluate my future, and come to terms with the fact that I have made the transition to my middle aged years. Most of this will be fodder for another blog. In the interim, I spent a little bit of time working on my turnings. ...

Turning small lidded vessel

06-08-2010 06:12 AM by David Craig | 18 comments »

More homework from the woodturning school - After making a couple bowls with Mike, I have been attempting to get a little more familiar with my HF lathe at home. This time, I thought I would give turning a small lidded vessel a try. When I first made attempts to turn on the lathe (a couple of years ago), I experimented with shapes. Mostly exercises to try to understand the turning tools and what they can or cannot do. One such object I kept on the bookshelf because it looked interesting to...

Game Table the legs

11-22-2009 05:49 PM by dryhter | 1 comment »

Hey Everybody, Well, here it is Christmas time, and if you are like me, you are contemplating a special Christmas gift. This year I decided to make a Game Table and this first video will deal with fabricating the table legs. The inspiration for the legs comes from Federal style furniture,the detail that caught my eye is an embellishment at the foot of the leg. I found it was not as easy to duplicate as I had thought and it, became necessary to improvise. A couple of jigs solved the d...
