Hookah

09-15-2012 11:26 PM by LeroyTheLips | 0 comments »

I was vacationing in Florida this summer and had my first experience with a Hookah in Ybor City, Tampa. I loved it. Brother-in-law said I should make one since I am a woodworker/carver. Does anybody have a good design out there? One that uses glass/ceramics for the water? I like the idea of four hoses for parties. And yes I am using it for tobacco. I only smoke once in awhile and usually it is a cigar or pipe. The coolness (literally) of a hookah was amazing. I am not used to buying stuff to ...

Maple Tree in the geezer stage of it's life...

07-16-2012 02:27 PM by HalDougherty | 9 comments »

I woke up this morning and when I let my shop buddy out for her morning search for ‘that perfect spot’ to take care of her doggie business and I found a huge limb broken out of the big maple tree near my front walk. The pictures are a little dark because the Sun was just rising when I took the pictures. I’ve been cleaning it up and while I’m resting I’ll write this blog entry before I finish cleaning it up. This maple tree was planted when my 2 story ...

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!

Howdy Folks! Looks like another lathe related video coming your way! I have soooo much fun turning things. I uploaded it in full HD and it took FOREVER! Whew, I am glad that is over. ha ha. Anyway, I hope that you enjoy the watching the process that I went through doing this little box. I call it a ring box because that is about all that will fit in it, it’s small. I actually thought of it for Valentines Day and I put a ring in one and gave it to my wife. If I were to store...
