Brian Havens, Woodturner

03-03-2012 09:33 PM by Brian Havens | 11 comments »

This is a video I made to promote my turning sales, but I think that my fellow woodturners and woodworkers will enjoy it as well. Ooop! Almost forgot the disclaimer: WARNING: Woodturning can—is—highly addictive. Brian Havens, The Fallen Tree, and any and all of their associates cannot be held liable for any lost wages, lost time, lost income, rehabilitation costs, spousal disputes, or any other damages resulting from anyone becoming a woodturner as a result of watching this video...

At the Lathe #1: Urchin Shell Ornaments

12-12-2011 07:32 AM by Brian Havens | 10 comments »

I found figuring out how to make these ornaments quite a fun challenge. (I already posted this video in my projects, but apparently that does not get it onto the LumberJocks Video Page) http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57125#comment-1116565

Wooworking Video part 2!

10-21-2011 01:25 AM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

Hey everybody, thanks so much for the great comments about my debut Woodworking Video. I had some more creative ideas to share along with another track that I had recorded about a year back entitled “Autumn Treasure” I hope you might enjoy it. I also included a poem to go along with this piece in the end of the video same name as the title. Forgive the quick speed reading headings as the track swiftly moves by…lol….but I only have so much time and the pause butto...

LumberJocks I have met... #4: One good turn...

06-25-2011 12:45 AM by degoose | 14 comments »

Or actually many good turns… While in Sydney recently, I was fortunate enough to catch up with a fellow LumberJock, Sam Shakouri who is a member of the Sydney Woodturners… check out there site... This man is one of the most talented wood turners I have met.. I am holding one of Sam’s turnings, a soccer ball, in my hand… Many have turned some beautiful work, but only a few have taken segmented turning into the 3D world… Just a few more pics.. ...

A bit of a wood gloat

04-13-2011 02:05 AM by David Craig | 7 comments »

I haven’t had much time to devote to shop projects for a couple weeks. Work and life still a little too chaotic for the moment. I did, however, have a bit of good fortune with an unexpected gift of wood. I had a childhood friend contact me on facebook and let me know that he had some “branches” he had pruned off of his Black Walnut tree and I could have what I wanted. Not one to turn down free wood, I investigated and found the branches were 3 12-15 foot sections that were a...

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 ...

Lathe Projects #3: Natural Edge Ash Bowl #2

02-10-2011 09:30 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

The last post left with some work to be completed on the piece before dismount. I wanted to work the edge of the bowl a little thinner and I did some aggressive stock removal on the interior and exterior edge. This left me with the bowl here. and here I did a little more work on the side to remove the somewhat boat like appearance and give it more curve. I cut the bowl off the lathe and began running through the grits of sanding. I have more trouble spots to touch up on that wil...
