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...
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 ...
Hi Jocks! This is a video of making a drawer pull for a project I am working on. I turned the pull from some beech and ebony. This is the kind of project that I thought that I needed a lathe for. I have been bitten by the turning bug and that is all that I seem to want to do lately… turn! This is such a small part of the overall project but it sure was a fun highlight in making it. I hope that you enjoy watching!
Hi Folks, Welcome to the first installment of the Lumberjocks.com Cyber Skill Share. Please read the Lumberjocks Forum for information on this concept, sit back, and turn the bottom of a bowl. This series will also include hollowing, sanding, finishing, turning tools, and some sharpening. Any feedback is greatly appreciated as we, the lumberjocks community, refine this concept! Thanks! Tom
Hey everybody, thanks so much for the great comments about my debut Woodworking Video. I had some more creative ideas to share along with another track that I had recorded about a year back entitled “Autumn Treasure” I hope you might enjoy it. I also included a poem to go along with this piece in the end of the video same name as the title. Forgive the quick speed reading headings as the track swiftly moves by…lol….but I only have so much time and the pause butto...
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.. ...
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! Almost forgot the disclaimer: WARNING: Woodturning can—is—highly addictive. 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...

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”.
