I was vacationing in Florida this summer and had my first experience with a Hookah in Ybor City, Tampa. I loved it. Brother-in-law said I should make one since I am a woodworker/carver. Does anybody have a good design out there? One that uses glass/ceramics for the water? I like the idea of four hoses for parties. And yes I am using it for tobacco. I only smoke once in awhile and usually it is a cigar or pipe. The coolness (literally) of a hookah was amazing. I am not used to buying stuff to ...

When we first went back to the States in September 2009 for our 4-month visit, I had three goals. They were: Go to the Canton First Monday Trade Days Attend one of Roy Underhill’s classes at the Woodwright’s School in North Carolina Pop in on some fellow woodworkers’ shops to see what they’re doing and to try new things Well, two out of three ain’t bad. I did go to the Canton flea market, and blogged about my sole find there. And I did get to visit the shops of two fellow...
I purchased the kadet version of the marking knife and decided I wanted the big one i.e. Fat Boy, but wanted the challange of doing it myself so I bought the kit. I will upload picture as soon as I figure a way to put them in here.
After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...
Dramatic woodworking Video Series #1: Super-Dramatic turning video of Richard Oedel---of The Furniture Society and CustomMade
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HaZ9J7MZSg&feature=youtu.be I’ve never seen such dramatic wood turning. Near the end it starts to sound rhythmic—pretty cool watch! Richard Oedel, a master furniture maker on CustomMade.com, turns a table leg on an antique lathe from the early 20th century. Richard’s immense skill is in keeping with the great tradition and history represented by this amazing piece of equipment. Is anyone else interested in having a similar video m...
Over the past few days, I’ve been shopping around on Craigslist for a new Jointer. I actually ran across a great looking 8” Grizzly jointer but then I realized I really don’t have any room for it in my garage. My wife and I agreed that the garage must have enough room to allow one car to be parked in case of a hail storm (which is fairly common in Texas). Well, today I was rethinking my shop. I’ve got this BIG Delta 46-715 14” lathe. Its a fantastic lathe ...
I don’t consider myself an accomplished turner…yet. Though, I’m working on it! I like to turn and the relative instant gratification that turning projects can offer. I had not turned anything in a while but, recently I spied a small off-cut of Walnut in the shop that was left over from the sofa table project. It looked like it had a bowl hiding inside it. Read on and I’ll walk you through the process I followed to create the Walnut bowl. Thanks for reading!
