no previous part Part 1 of Videos series Part 2: Rough Cutting »

I know there is a lot of curiosity in how I make things, so I thought I would start sharing some of the videos I shoot about them. They’re just little things shot on my iPhone, but it gives you a pretty solid idea. :)

This is part of a larger project that I am doing. I needed a little post/pedestal to glue onto another thing, so I took a scrap piece of maple, cut it in half and glued it to itself. Here I am turning from a 4.5” square into a 3.5” puck. It is somewhere in-between in the video. I paused it at the beginning and end just so you could clearly see what it actually looked like.

That CNC lathe can do almost anything- especially tricky cuts to size that you have so much of a problem with on a wood lathe. I wish I had a video for my next project- a cutting board made mostly on the lathe. I’ll take still shots to give the idea of what is needed. It has to have close tolerances and real straight cuts for fit so I’m doing it on the South Bend lathe with a full size face plate.

Thanks for show us your process…............Jim

Lis, I’d very much like to see the tool geometry that you are using.

-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--

Have your say...
