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.. ...
Some of y’all may remember the post a few years ago about the wood lathe I built. I’ve been meaning to write about the “how & why” of this project for some time and I finally got around to it! I talk about the motivation to build my own lathe, the expenses, design process, & of course building the lathe in addition to other things. Per the norm, the post can be found on my blog. I hope you enjoy the read!
05302016:I have started on the repower of my Delta 46-715 lathe. I am replacing the reeves drive and original motor with 1hp treadmill motor with 8 rib pulley. So far I have disassembled the reeves drive, removed original motor, drilled out original safety shield bolt holes, and tapped safety cover bolt holes 1/4-20 threads.================================================== I have added pics of some of the key pieces: Broken hub from one of the Reeves pulleys: Unbroken Reeves...
Build part 1 of the lathe duplicator series.
Here is a video of turning a goblet made from English Walnut. It is for my newborn son.
I have started another banjo! Here are a couple of videos of turning the pot. Nothing earth shattering but just some video of the process for anyone that may be interested. Brett
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>
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!
Hey again Everbody! Since I have been into woodturning lately, I thought that I would share a quick video of some of the small projects that I have doing on the lathe. Nothing fancy, just some small lidded boxes. Maybe this will inspire someone else to get out there and, as Capt. Eddie Castelin would say, “make some shavin’s”.
