Making model car wire wheels

05-20-2022 07:57 PM by tim0001 | 4 comments »

Making Wheels: I use a hole cutter on the drill press to cut the outer diameter for the wheel (2.5 inches for this wheel). The hole cutter has a 1/4 inch center drill and fits my pen mandrel on the lathe, or chuck into a drill and turn against a belt sander. I then shape the wheel on the lathe using my pen mandrel. Shape the wheel and treads. Cut out the center of the wheel with hole saw, hold with a pair of pliers!! make a wheel holding jig – use cutouts from wheel...

Designing a Piano Stool .

05-20-2022 01:21 PM by jonoseph | 2 comments »

The Piano Stool idea came as a negative reaction to black ,metal ,cross legged mass produced things meant for electronic keyboards . (although just £16 ) .In front of a mahogany coloured upright piano that would not look right .So I looked on ebay to see what shapes and designs were out there in wood . There is no real market for these . Most were on the auction system with 0 bids and No Delivery. Free collection in person .Only one was a buy it now . First impression was cabriole legs . V...

Woodturning: White Cypress Banana Bowl

05-20-2022 01:47 AM by TimbeconWoodturner | 2 comments »

In this video Colin turns a stunning #BananaBowl out of Goldfields White Cypress a species local to us here in Western Australia. Turned using a two bowl gouges and a negative rake bowl scraper from Crown Tools in the United Kingdom, this is an excellent example of what can be turned with just a relatively small tool set. The project was finished with SHELLAWAX Friction Polish from U-Beaut Polishes who are an Australian made & owned company specialising in finishes for woodturners....

Laundry hamper #11: Second door and stock prep for the carcasse

05-19-2022 04:45 PM by Dave Polaschek | 9 comments »

Been a while since I worked on this, and the pile of slats I had set aside for the second door took a beating while they were laying on the corner of the bench. I ended up needing to recut all of the oak slats in order to be able to assemble the second door, but that went more smoothly as I have better tools for the job. The dados in the slats got cut on a table saw this time around. And the mitered half-laps on the door frame pieces got cut at the miter box. Much easier to get everything ...

Wild Cherry Gall Blog

05-19-2022 11:06 AM by VanDesignWoodworkin | 4 comments »

Since I’ve been posting some wild cherry gall bowls, people have been asking to see what the galls look like in the wild. Yesterday I went fly fishing and, since the first time in a long time I was skunked on the fishing (a few strikes but not one landed fish) I’m glad that some decent pictures came out of the trip. Here’s what I know. Wild cherry galls are caused by a disease called Black Knot Fungus. The fungus affects ornamental and fruiting trees (so if one has a an o...

The Early Days of our Family owned and operated woodshop

05-18-2022 12:59 AM by CCWLLC | 3 comments » woodshop actually started from a much simpler place. In fact, it was born of necessity: my family’s home needed new furniture. It was when I got to work preparing pieces for my wife, my two growing boys, and our home that the idea for Clines Crafted Woodworking LLC took form. As I sought out fine local woods, studied the most influential woodworkers, and honed my techn...

Third cholla bowl #6: Shaping and filling

05-15-2022 04:39 PM by Dave Polaschek | 16 comments »

I finally got back in the shop after a crazy week. On Saturday I shaped the outside of the bowl and filled a few holes, then Sunday I smoothed that out and finished it, then chucked the base of the bowl and started shaping the inside. That’s the outside pretty good. Let’s get to the inside. First I have to cut off the pine “base.” Then clean up. Once I get pretty close to the final shape, I pull the bowl from the lathe, leaving it on the chuck, and fill and...
