Board center gauge - wood version blog

12-30-2013 02:12 AM by mafe | 16 comments »

Board center gaugewood version Ok I know I just posted the brass version, but since I could see there were great interest, I thought it would be fine with the wooden version also. Forgive me! This is a gauge I have seen boat builders use to mark center on both sides of boards when splitting them in half.The grooves will serve as a guide or the saw cut.So this was the wooden version that I made before the brass and dark wood, both work well.(This was made February 2011, just never posted...

So you want to turn green wood #1: Introduction to green woodturning

02-05-2008 03:37 AM by Alin Dobra | 1 comment »

Some of you sent me private messages or posted comments asking about the kind of woodturning I like to do. My first reply was a video with 20 minutes summary of how I turn a goblet (the blog entry containing the video is here: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/alindobra/blog/2719 ). While the video is spectacular, it helps little in understanding how YOU can learn how to turn. The explanations in the video are scant and my elbow covers a lot of the action. This blog series is designed to expand th...

Pen Turning #1: Intro to Pen Turning - Part 1

07-13-2007 04:17 AM by WayneC | 24 comments »

Overview There are a number of people who have indicated they would like to know more about what it takes to turn pens. There are quite a few very good pen turners who are members of our community. My intent is go get an overview out there to encourage more people to give it a try. I’m hoping some of the other pen turners will add to this and we can get more people turning. It really is quite simple and very rewarding. What I like about turning pens is the ability to finish a ...

A New Work Bench, Mikey Style

07-04-2012 02:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Several years ago, I built a simple work table as a table saw outfeed table. It quickly became my do it all table. It is made out of 2×4’s and two pieces of 1/2 inch cd plywood which I had stored out in my shed. Fast forward to the present time. Lately I have gotten a renewed interest in woodworking. I have been doing some type of carpentry since the 70’s when I was helping my dad build pole barns. After my dad passed away, I was given his Craftsman table saw (circa 197...

Slice and Dice

06-08-2009 05:44 AM by closetguy | 10 comments »

A while back someone asked a forum question about what everyone does with their scrap wood and cutoffs. The overwhelming response was for inlay pieces, or firewood. I also do the same thing, but last fall I gathered up some scrap and made up bookmarks for gifts at Christmas. While doing this I sort of got carried away with it. Making bookmarks are like making cutting boards. It’s not difficult and its fun experimenting with different designs and wood types. With glued up blocks, it’s ...
