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...

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #3: Project 1 - new lathe, old design

01-07-2019 07:16 PM by mnguy | 2 comments »

I began turning almost 4 years ago, and like many people, I find it a bit addicting. I am not at the lathe every day by any means, and I have gone weeks without turning it on. But, I am often thinking about turning, sketching forms to turn, planning segmented projects, looking at lathes and tools. For 2019, I want to get deeper into turning, and to help, I have set the goal of turning 50 project this year. They won’t all be big or elaborate, some might even be failures, but I intend to ...

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #1: Project 3 - I'm dyeing here!

01-22-2019 02:46 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

Last year, I bought some Artisan dyes to play with. I like the surprise, random figure I sometimes get with maple segmented pieces, and thought dye would be a great way to have some fun and accentuate the figure. This bowl was intended as a test piece for dyeing, using a tenon vs. a mortise for the chuck, and to tryout a new finish. I pulled out a plan I used to teach my sister segmented turning (she was a natural!), and the piecing and turning went quickly. The interior transition from th...

Skateboard ring process breakdown

07-12-2019 07:49 PM by kiwilynne | 4 comments »

A quick breakdown for Jim Jakosh and everyone else interested in how I make a skateboard ring I cut a 3×3 cm blank from the skateboard using the deck’s original thickness. I then use the scroll saw to cut off the corners and reduce some of the extra wood. I put the blank on the lathe and get it down to a bit thicker than what the final ring will be, to account for additional finishing sanding. Make sure your chisels are sharp, because if it catches it can take a go...
