This is No Bull!

07-31-2015 04:33 PM by BrentH | 3 comments »

No Bull! —My neighbor was pretty impressed when I told him I’d entered a bowl in the County Fair—until he realized it wasn’t spelled “B-U-L-L”. Still, I did all right. I think the prize money is $5. I’ve always told my wife that someday my woodworking would pay off! (Original details of this project were posted on 7/22/15.)

Building Big Blue, a Home Made Wood Lathe

07-29-2015 02:34 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

Some of y’all may remember the post a few years ago about the wood lathe I built. I’ve been meaning to write about the “how & why” of this project for some time and I finally got around to it! I talk about the motivation to build my own lathe, the expenses, design process, & of course building the lathe in addition to other things. Per the norm, the post can be found on my blog. I hope you enjoy the read!

Making a Vacuum Adapter for Wood Lathe

01-16-2015 08:04 PM by woodshopmike | 2 comments »

I was wanting to use a vacuum chuck on my lathe so first thing I needed was a way to get vacuum to the spindle. Lucky for me, or not so lucky, my spindle has a hole cross drilled into it! This made my project a bit more involved, but still successful. I used a threaded lamp rod to supply vacuum through the spindle along with a couple of ball bearings, pipe fittings, and two spindle adapters I turned. All the meat and potatoes is in my post, Make a Vacuum Adapter For Your Lathe. I...

12-30-2014 10:58 PM by JWags | 3 comments »

As I’ve posted earlier – I bought a new mini lathe a few weeks ago. I’m going to attempt a complete chess set. I posted a video showing how I made a pawn a couple of weeks ago. I completed all 16 pawns. Now I’ve completed the Rook. The link to my YouTube video is here: http://youtu.be/QbpCcqfV40w Comments and especially suggestions from other turners are indeed welcome! I’m learning a lot and having a lot of fun! James

Jarrah, Tasmanian Oak, Brown wood and Maple veneer.

Well, the first in this series was a little on the ordinary side, that is not very creative, so it was time to step up a little and try something that quite frankly scared me.But the result will be rather nice if I do say so myself.This is unfinished at this stage, the glue is not yet cured properly and only the outside is shaped. The base and neck also need more shaping but that will happen in due course. The inside also has to be turned out.The same process was used as the first one, cu...

Chip in Dip Finished Up!

09-09-2014 02:37 PM by woodshopmike | 0 comments »

Y’all may have seen the ambrosia maple chip-n-dip I posted in the project section a few days ago. Check out the Chip-N-Dip Finished blog post to see how I went about the process. This is just a very coarse blog post, a more in depth write up will accompany the next chip-n-dip bowl I make. Hopefully I’ll get another one turned before the week is out, but don’t count on a post that soon :) Hope y’all enjoy, have a great day!

Coring Bowls

08-25-2014 02:28 PM by woodshopmike | 0 comments »

Here I discuss my experience with bowl coring. A fellow WGNC member offered to show me the rope using the McNaughton Center Saver. It was a blast and a touch terrifying at first! What follows is my first attempt to recreate what I learned without supervision. I think things went well! Check out the rest of my bowl coring adventure!
