The Craftsman's Path #42: Turned Walnut Bowl

07-14-2008 02:43 AM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

I don’t consider myself an accomplished turner…yet. Though, I’m working on it! I like to turn and the relative instant gratification that turning projects can offer. I had not turned anything in a while but, recently I spied a small off-cut of Walnut in the shop that was left over from the sofa table project. It looked like it had a bowl hiding inside it. Read on and I’ll walk you through the process I followed to create the Walnut bowl. Thanks for reading!

Wooden Apple

03-24-2012 02:54 PM by Brett | 3 comments »

This project is easy and very satisfying for some reason. It is an apple turned on the lathe. This particular one is turned out of some cherry and the stem is ebony. Why would anyone want an apple made from wood? Well, reasons will vary but I think that the majority will think that it is unique and just looks cool. It’s an original gift idea, at least. I hope that you enjoy the video and get to make yourself or a loved one an apple!

Turning a Skew Handle

03-14-2011 12:07 AM by Glen Peterson | 3 comments »

My wife gave me an Alan Lacer skew for Christmas. I made an oak handle for it this afternoon and posted this Skew Handle in the projects section. It ended up being an easy and quick turning project, but I couldn’t figure out an easy to make it on my own. In any case the Alan Lacer 1 3/8” skew is a monster. The shaft is a 1/2” x 3/4” x 3” inch rectangle. I couldn’t think of an easy way to make the mortise in the handle for the tool shaft. I had dinner ...

Thought you LJ woodturners would like to look at this fellows projects. I’m in Charleston, WV for their Vandalia Gathering. One of the vendors down here has some interesting wood turnings. Thought I would share it with you. I did tell him about LJ’s. Check it out if you like. http://www.etsy.com/shop/jlwoodturning

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=...

Making A Living At It! #1: Self Valuation

02-21-2014 04:03 PM by Stephen Mines | 2 comments »

“Any suggestions how to price or split the price of a turning?” Sure. I started woodworking (including woodturning) in 1971 and since 1987 my sole source of income has been woodturning. I’ve not had such a hard time determining prices, partly because, in the marketplace of simple woodturning, most ‘professional’ wood turning businesses are masters of fixing the prices: high, higher and outrageous I routinely charge 15 to 25 percent less than established compani...

A day with David Ellsworth

03-23-2010 03:45 PM by Jon Spelbring | 2 comments »

After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...

Finally got Vacuum Chucking working on my Nova lathe...

03-29-2010 04:49 PM by dmann | 2 comments »

Will post full reviews of both systems later, but just wanted to drop a note. The Nova Vacuum Adaptor gets a thumbs down. It works in conjunction with the handwheel. Didn’t work with a shop vac, didn’t work with my vacuum pump. I spent all kinds of time making custom fittings for it. Still no go. The bearing is just too leaky. Maybe if I slathered the whole thing with some grease, but I am tired of messing with this thing. The Hold Fast Universal Vacuum Adaptor gets a hearty...

Your Time To Turn #1: Woodturning Symposium for Visually or Physically Disabled Persons

12-07-2009 08:22 PM by SteveRussell | 2 comments »

As the Founding President of the Lone Star Woodturners Association, Inc., I’m proud to announce that I’m planning a new hands-on woodturning symposium for visually and physically disabled individuals in 2010. Through the years, I have received numerous emails from individuals who are blind and want to learn more about woodturning. Few educational centers will allow them to join a woodturning class because they are blind. Some of these individuals have built their own outdoor decks, b...
