Woodturning #1: David Marks Turns a 400 Pound Hollow Vessel!

08-04-2016 08:42 PM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

View on YouTube I met with David Marks while he was still in the early stages of his greatest woodturning project (yet!). He showed my the specialized lathe tools he uses for very large hollow vessel turnings and some of his woodturning tricks! He also explained his amazing methods for storing, drying and stabilizing wood for his wood turning projects. The scale of this woodturning project is amazing! The blank for this turning project weighed 400 pounds! Even the tools he use...

Handmade and Special Purpose Lathe tools

03-27-2016 07:36 PM by JimChrisawn | 2 comments »

I really enjoy woodworking and especially hand tool and turning. I really like to make small lathe tools for detail work. I use HSS in different sizes depending on the tool I need or want to make. In this picture from left to right, point detail tool, 1/4” point and round nose scrapers, 1/4” round skew, 1/4” double ended three point tool, small Allen wrench hollowing tool, 1/4” fluteless gouge. In this picture from left to right: 3/8” three point tool ...

Chess pieces and board #3: Finishing Off Lathe

02-12-2014 04:59 PM by Luke | 0 comments »

I usually just finish the chess pieces one at a time.

I drilled a 1/4” hole into 3/4” dowel and inserted a 1/4” dowel to chuck in the drill. I drilled a 3/4” hole in the holder and used a round file to ream it out so there is enough play to let it spin freely. After ...

Making a Wooden Tool Handle

01-07-2014 02:42 PM by woodshopmike | 1 comment »

Today I’ll walk you through making a handle for a tool that has a square tang. This could be achieved in a similar fashion to the metal handle I made, but now I get to tell you how to turn your own handle.

My approach to making tools is to not get caught up in how your tool looks, but rather how well it works. Do...

Shop Improvements #6: Bench Grinder Toolrest

12-12-2011 11:00 PM by wolflrv | 5 comments »

Made this little grinder toolrest to sharpen my lathe tools. I’ll probably still build the wolverine type jig too, but needed this first. Also included in this post are a couple of shots of the set of lathe tools and draw knife, I got for $10 at a garage sale, as well as my new mini set. I know I’ll probably need other stuff, but figure this will get me started. Most of the lathe stuff I plan to do will be part of building more model cars and toys, so it’ll be mostly small p...
