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...

No Hear? New Year

01-14-2011 10:07 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Sorry folks for the hiatus. Been a hectic beginning to the New Year but not entirely unproductive. Towards the ending of last year, an announcement was made that the company I work for has been sold to a company in India. This has caused me to reflect a little on life, evaluate my future, and come to terms with the fact that I have made the transition to my middle aged years. Most of this will be fodder for another blog. In the interim, I spent a little bit of time working on my turnings. ...

Small Turnings #1: Maple Dish

09-04-2010 08:18 PM by David Craig | 8 comments »

Good Afternoon all. Been awhile since I could get on here. Aside from my work schedule, my wife experienced the trauma of having to vacate her apartment due to a fire that broke out in a neighboring apartment. Building is shot with a few apartments totally decimated. Fortunately, hers was not destroyed and the majority of her things salvageable. I had to help her move her things into storage and she is staying with her folks until she finds a new place. Nobody was injured and all pets were...

Lathe Projects #1: Woodturning - Slim Vase

07-20-2010 02:33 PM by David Craig | 6 comments »

Been awhile since I had shop time. The last three weeks have been pretty much on call and vacation with the kids so it feels good to get back to work on some things. As I progress on the lathe, I have been wanting to experiment with more delicate turnings. Much of my work has been more heavy handed so far and I wanted to work with curves, thinner walls, and trickier hollowing. I had a small log I discovered that had been sitting in the basement since the beginning of time so I mounted it a...
