My entry for the Summer’s Woodworking 2×4 Contest. Carl Jacobson joked about making a rocket ship from a 2×4 so I took up the challenge. Hope you enjoy the video, bonus footage at the end of my daughter and I “flying” the rocket.
I made this pen for my son for his first day attending a local community college. I also made a video of the project. Here it is and I hope that you enjoy. Thanks for watching! http://youtu.be/gPlNopPXLVk <iframe src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/gPlNopPXLVk” frameborder=”0” height=”315” width=”560”></iframe>
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.

It was spur of the moment but still fun and satisfying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUd4nIzSq7M&list=UUU_N6BtSIC...
I ask for your comments and suggestions about a opportunity (problem) with a couple similar bowls. Both made from walnut and maple. One about 11 1/2” other 13”. History—have been doing segmented bowls for just over a year with this cracking only on these two. I hope you can see the two joints with the yellow circles. Those joints separated by appx. .0003th of an inch. If held up to a light you could see through. These were made the same way as almost all the bowls I’ve...
“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...
This is simply a test and a introduction. The plate im working on at the moment is a thing With history, it is a thing i have poured a lot of myself into. Its like a inner prosses, both of sorrow,joy and creating. My grandfather turned this plate maybe 15-20 years ago from one piece of silver birch and forgott it in a corner in the workshop where i found it afther his passing away many years later. I thought it was sad if the plate wasent finished, so i started thinking of a pat...
