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
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”.
Yeah, I know, another turning project. This is NOT a how to video! You will get an explanation in the beginning of the video. I hope that you enjoy it!
Just a short introduction to version 2 of my router powered lathe duplicator/ copier attachment. This router attachment enables the duplication of existing wood turnings or the creation new woodturnings through the use of a template.
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 ...
Will post full reviews of both systems later, but just wanted to drop a note. The Nova Vacuum Adaptor gets a thumbs down. It works in conjunction with the handwheel. Didn’t work with a shop vac, didn’t work with my vacuum pump. I spent all kinds of time making custom fittings for it. Still no go. The bearing is just too leaky. Maybe if I slathered the whole thing with some grease, but I am tired of messing with this thing. The Hold Fast Universal Vacuum Adaptor gets a hearty...
... woodturning smock/jacket. This was not my idea but I thought that I would send the tip along to others. Not everybody has extra cash for such luxuries.Thanks,Brett
LJ’s This is how I make a bottlestopper. This piece of laburnum I got when they cut down this tree , it was only 200 meters from my house!! My bottlestoppers are sold and most of the money goes to charity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ6x-_-b84I&feature=share&list=UUdl_tamYXjTTHIg7DgMUmZQ Thanks for watching
