02-17-2010 03:07 AM by Tribalwind | 12 comments »

OK, This is by no means an expert guide to making rings, as I’m only in week-1 of making them ! .but right now here is what i do, this is fairly comprehensive tutorial for a beginner (and by a beginner!) . its mostly self-explanatory by the pics, but i went and explained anyway.. i begin by sizing a blank about 1/2” thick x 1-1/2 wide, and long enough to cut off several squares cut them off on my band saw (God i love my bandsaw!, Minimax MM16,bought used for a Song!)the cu...

Dehumidifier Kiln

04-20-2009 03:00 AM by bigwoodturner | 12 comments »

Most of you are not going to turn on as large a scale as I do so you are not going to need as large a facility as I use. I am going to talk about what I call a coffin kiln. By enclosing an area under a wall mounted work bench about the size of a coffin you will be able to dry several weeks worth of turning. Frame the area in or simply build a framed box of the same size. If you are building under a bench your door will drop down and if you build a free standing box have the lid open like ...

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

Turning a Small Ring box on the Lathe

03-20-2012 02:27 PM by Brett | 11 comments »

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...

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!

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...

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...

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...
