Lathe work #1: Woodturning for the True Beginner

09-03-2016 05:47 PM by Bdobs13 | 4 comments »

For anyone looking to get into woodturning, you should. It is an awesome feeling to turn the simplest of things. My first object was just a cylinder with little grooves but the feeling was great. I have had a used Jet 1236 lathe that I just looked at for about a year and always too afraid of using it and getting way too caught up in getting the tools sharp although I only attempted sharpening them once with epic failure results. I did countless hours of research on woodturning for beginners ...

Woodturning #1: New Bench Grinder

01-15-2008 04:56 PM by PhilipR | 11 comments »

My new bench grinder came in yesterday. Having done very little research before purchasing my lathe, I hadn’t realized just how expensive all the extra necessities were going to be; heck, I didn’t realize how much more I would have to buy before I’d be ready to start turning. Needless to say, I haven’t had the opportunity to sharpen my tools once since I purchased them in November and as a result have done very little turning on my home lathe. After the bowl turni...

Woodturning #1: David Marks Turns a 400 Pound Hollow Vessel!

08-04-2016 08:42 PM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

View on YouTube I met with David Marks while he was still in the early stages of his greatest woodturning project (yet!). He showed my the specialized lathe tools he uses for very large hollow vessel turnings and some of his woodturning tricks! He also explained his amazing methods for storing, drying and stabilizing wood for his wood turning projects. The scale of this woodturning project is amazing! The blank for this turning project weighed 400 pounds! Even the tools he use...

Chess pieces and board #7: Turning the Bishop

03-28-2014 01:58 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

Here is the latest video I’ve made in my series on chess piece making. This time it’s the bishop. This one has been the most fun to make so far. The knights were fun but so much work went into each one and they were difficult. This was a nice easy turning job with a little break to put the kerf in the top. Thanks for watching!http://youtu.be/EgwWgVPppMw<iframe src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/EgwWgVPppMw” frameborder=”0” height=”315” width=...

Coring Bowls

08-25-2014 02:28 PM by woodshopmike | 0 comments »

Here I discuss my experience with bowl coring. A fellow WGNC member offered to show me the rope using the McNaughton Center Saver. It was a blast and a touch terrifying at first! What follows is my first attempt to recreate what I learned without supervision. I think things went well! Check out the rest of my bowl coring adventure!

Segmented bowl base ring cracks??

03-10-2014 01:46 PM by poospleasures | 7 comments »

I ask for your comments and suggestions about a opportunity (problem) with a couple similar bowls. Both made from walnut and maple. One about 11 1/2” other 13”. History—have been doing segmented bowls for just over a year with this cracking only on these two. I hope you can see the two joints with the yellow circles. Those joints separated by appx. .0003th of an inch. If held up to a light you could see through. These were made the same way as almost all the bowls I’ve...

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...
