Birth of a Bowl

03-24-2012 03:41 AM by Brian Havens | 15 comments »

Take a peek into my bowl making process! Lately, I have been doing a lot of studying and reading about how to make good videos. One thing I noticed about the particular mistakes made in poor videos is that most of the mistakes violate one basic principle: that video is visual. It sounds obvious once stated, yet notice that when you watch a boring video, it is usually what you are seeing that bores you, more so than the dialog and other audio. This video is a homework assignment that I a...

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...

Chess pieces and board #3: Finishing Off Lathe

02-12-2014 04:59 PM by Luke | 0 comments »

I usually just finish the chess pieces one at a time. I wanted to be able to get a good smooth finish on them like you do on the lathe but still be able to turn another piece without having to wait for them to dry in between coats.This is what I came up with. I drilled a 1/4” hole into 3/4” dowel and inserted a 1/4” dowel to chuck in the drill. I drilled a 3/4” hole in the holder and used a round file to ream it out so there is enough play to let it spin freely. After ...

Purple Heart and Tasmanian Oak Segmented Vase #1: Start of some fun.

12-22-2014 12:36 AM by BobWemm | 6 comments »

Hi people,I have started working with segments amongst all the other things that I do. This is a very interesting and challenging thing for me, and I think that I was conned by my mate “Rockbuster” into trying this. He is so good that I just had to have a go myself.This particular vase is my third piece but the first two were pretty basic. Even this one is basic compared to some of the “STUNNING” pieces around the traps, but Hey, you have to start somewhere donR...

Woodturning #1: David Marks Turns a 400 Pound Hollow Vessel!

08-04-2016 08:42 PM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

View on YouTube I met with David Marks while he was still in the early stages of his greatest woodturning project (yet!). He showed my the specialized lathe tools he uses for very large hollow vessel turnings and some of his woodturning tricks! He also explained his amazing methods for storing, drying and stabilizing wood for his wood turning projects. The scale of this woodturning project is amazing! The blank for this turning project weighed 400 pounds! Even the tools he use...

Chess pieces and board #7: Turning the Bishop

03-28-2014 01:58 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

Here is the latest video I’ve made in my series on chess piece making. This time it’s the bishop. This one has been the most fun to make so far. The knights were fun but so much work went into each one and they were difficult. This was a nice easy turning job with a little break to put the kerf in the top. Thanks for watching!http://youtu.be/EgwWgVPppMw<iframe src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/EgwWgVPppMw” frameborder=”0” height=”315” width=...

A Better Bowl Holding Fixture

02-12-2015 09:49 PM by poospleasures | 6 comments »

I built this extended jaws fixture for holding bowls while finishing their bottoms a few months back. It has worked well for me when I had only eight of the tapered holding buttons. The problem was removing the extended jaws and the holding buttons and then screwing the buttons into the proper holes to use the jig with 8” and smaller bowls. To combat this time consuming configuration change picked up more buttons and 6mm mounting screws at Lowes. I can now leave the outer row of but...
