...And There Was Light

01-13-2015 03:25 AM by Jarred | 0 comments »

A lack of light was one of the shortcomings of my original design. My garage has two west-facing windows, but not a whole lot of useable light. I had used a pair of portable halogen work lights on a stand. Both of them promptly burned out. When I went to the hardware store to replace the bulbs, I looked through the lighting section and found a clip-on LED light with a flexible neck. I had a hard time finding a place to clip the light. The frame of the lathe stand was too wide for the clip....

Building a Going Away Plaque for my Chief

05-14-2016 02:49 AM by beahan | 0 comments »

So I was out of Japan for a little over a month on a trip to the Philippines for work. Now that I’m back, I can finally get back to making some sawdust! My first project after I got back was to make a going away plaque for my squadron Chief who is moving to another base. I work in communications and we typically like to give our leadership going away gifts that reflect what we do on a daily basis, so we opted to give him a Gerber cable making multi-tool encased in a shadow box. Fo...

Step by Step Acetate Pen Turning #1: Preparing the blank

03-07-2010 06:51 PM by FrankoManini | 0 comments »

Turning pens is a lot of fun, and a great way to practice lathe skills while making something beautiful. This step by step will cover the essential elements of selecting the style and material for the pen, preparing the blank, and mounting it on th lathe. I don’t turn many pens. Usually when I do, it’s for a specific reason or an special someone, so I don’t batch them out like a lot of guys do. Not that there is anything wrong with that, because if you’re trying ...

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...

found wood

06-16-2014 04:31 AM by NaptownWood | 0 comments »

Why is it that when I see a tree being cut down, and I stop for a piece or two or three to turn on the lathe, when I get into a really nice, drier, figured interesting piece, I only grabbed one chunk, and when its wet as can be, boring, stinky, and hard to make viable, I have taken a half truckload?
