Small Projects #6: Dog Feeder

01-27-2020 01:26 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Dogs! We have two sizes, small and bigger. Roscoe is an English bulldog who doesn’t like to share with the other, smaller, dogs. Due to extreme inbreeding Roscoe can’t eat if the bowl is flat on the floor. The better half had been holding his dish by hand twice a day until I built this simple dog bowl stand. It’s just at the right height for him. It was built out of some 2×10 and 1×12 scraps. I beveled the corners of the sides to make it less of an ankle biter....

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #43: Kept from the ashes

10-04-2019 01:22 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

Neighbors took down a dying ash this summer, and I rescued some blanks off the pile before it went to the compost site. After around 3 months drying, with Anchorsealed ends, the wood was still a tiny bit damp, which made for nice turning. The finished bowl seems to be stable, so the wood must have been dry enough. This is my first time turning ash, and I really liked the aroma. 9.75” diameter, 3” tall. Shellac sanding sealer and Ack’s abrasive paste.

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #41: Walnut and resin

10-03-2019 01:16 PM by mnguy | 1 comment »

One of my favorite sources of turning material has become the offcut bins at a local hardwood dealer + cabinet shop. Always something different, you have to design around the wood a bit, and it’s cheap! This piece of walnut had a through-crack, which filled nicely with tinted System III. Once on the lathe, I decided on a modern form. Finish is shellac sanding sealer and Ack’s abrasive paste.

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #37: Another apple and resin bowl

08-21-2019 01:36 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

This was supposed to be somewhat of a ‘winged’ bowl, as I started with a half log chunk that was ~7” across and 12” long. The log had other ideas. I got chunks breaking off both long edges so I ended up turning it round vs. oblong. In retrospect I could have flipped the blank and maybe taken the chipped out areas out by removing material from the top / face of the bowl, but I took all off as I turned the back of the bowl and put a tenon on for the foot. The result was ...

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #32: My new favorite turning project

08-01-2019 04:52 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

This is the second project I have made from a 8/4 remnant, where I cut the piece in half and then glued the resulting pieces together. Both times, there was reasonable grain match so the resulting blank did not look obviously like it glued up from narrower pieces. This started as a piece of white oak from the scrap bins at Forest Products in Maplewood, MN (always a good place to get a cheap haul of offcuts from their cabinet shop operation). I am really happy with the rolled rim and the overa...

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #28: Another square bowl

07-18-2019 01:45 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

The first square I made was a challenge that I enjoyed, so when I unearthed a square of white oak that was left over from a project for friends (we replaced the threshold of their exterior door), I knew it had to be a square bowl. I drew inspiration from several Youtubers (thank you to all the folks that do such a wonderful job sharing their skills and process via that medium!) for a bowl with closed corners / feet. I didn’t about chip out with the thin areas at the edges of the feet...

White oak burl bowl

04-20-2018 12:24 AM by HoosierBoy87 | 2 comments »

I accidentally posted this in blogs rather than projects… Anyway for this entry to be deleted? Just finished a bowl I turned from a white oak burl. It was finished with a coat of danish oil and three coats of polyurethane. This is my first post in a long time… I have not had a ton of time to do much woodworking as I’m still in college, but we are almost in to summer now and I will likely be working on a lot more projects. I will probably also post some of the things I have made...

A box of Koa - Not a Koa Box #3: Mini bowls - board #3

07-10-2017 04:23 PM by sras | 10 comments »

I was just pondering a project for some of my Koa and I realized I never added what I did with board #3. This was a few years ago but better late than never. We hosted a dinner for a few years as an auction item for a fundraiser. The dinner featured several courses. The first course was simply some cubes condensed for plums from our tree. The theme was “Harvest” so I chose to and make some mini bowls to serve the first course and used fall themed shapes. I marked the ...

Sheoak Block No. 1 #1: W I P - Sheoak Block

02-27-2017 08:46 AM by BobWemm | 5 comments »

My over the road neighbour was very kind to me and bought back two lumps of Sheoak, Casuarina ?? for me to play with.I first split off the heart piece that was only half the depth of the block and made a little bottle for my Vietnam Vet Buddy who visited on Saturday.There was quite a lot of sapwood on this piece and it worked out that this was the safest mounting option, however it would have been good if I could have mounted it more securely, as I could have cored out a c...
