Modern Woodworking Project #11: Modern Outdoor Side Table

06-25-2022 12:32 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

In this video, I’ll show you how to build a modern outdoor side table that will perfectly complement your outdoor space. This side table is great beginner woodworking project, and it can be completed in a weekend. With a sleek design and durable construction, this side table is a great accompaniment to the chaise lounge that I built last year. As with all outdoor furniture, choosing a durable and rot resistant type of wood is imperative. So, for this project I went with cypress becau...

Journey into Woodturning #92: Mushroom Nutcracker

03-08-2022 01:55 PM by MovingChips | 2 comments »

This project was a suggestion from a friend who saw an imagine somewhere. I thought, yeah I could do that. Then I thought some more, that’s actually going to be a challenge. I was determined to make this happen, success or fail. First I needed to find the right wood, at the right size. I ended up with cherry for the base, maple for the top and padauk for the spindle/threaded crusher. The cherry base came together quickly and easily. Beautiful wood to work. However the tap for threading ...

Journey into Woodturning #91: Mystery Wood

02-01-2022 03:48 PM by MovingChips | 1 comment »

This project started off as a mystery. Not only did I have no idea what I would make from this piece of wood, but I have no idea what the species of wood is. I knew it would be hard, based on the weight of the lumber. Also knew it was going to be round. I started off thinking it would be a simple round noodle bowl. Small thin base, almost a bead. Outer shape of the bowl would be semi circular or basically a half a ball. The inside would match the outside. After I started, I turned a sma...

Journey into Woodturning #90: Failure to Success

01-25-2022 03:06 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

This project was based on grabbing a piece of wood and saying, what can I make with this. I had no idea what the end result would be, nor the beginning. I simply turned it round and went from there. I thought about using this wood before, but felt it was a little punky in the corner through the center. I decided, what the heck, lets give it go. The Claro Walnut is beautiful, but the punky sap wood is horrible. (At least I think it was the sap wood.) The contrast between the soft and hardwo...

Journey into Woodturning #89: Candy Dish from Macassar Ebony

01-18-2022 03:04 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

This project was based on grabbing a piece of wood and saying, what can I make with this. The wood I grabbed was Macassar Ebony. It is a very dark wood with even darker streaks. It didn’t take long after starting to work with the wood to realize the hardness of the species. The design was to make a wide rim shallow bowl, from the 2×6x6 piece. This wasn’t a huge chunk of wood, but it would end up looking great. I tried to put a nice flowing swell from the base to the top that flared ou...

Journey into Woodturning #88: 1st Cup

01-11-2022 03:06 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

This project was on the books for a while. I decided it was time to crab a piece of wood and turn a cup. Sapele was handy and so I got to work. Roughing the round wasn’t hard and once secured in the chuck I grabbed the forstner bit to hallow the inside. This was the toughest part of the project. I slowed the lathe. I sped it up. I gently advanced the bit. The wood was tough on the end grain and started to smoke or it would bind the motor. I don’t know if its dull bits, hard wood, me or the...

Journey into Woodturning #87: Gel Bead Pot

01-04-2022 03:01 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

This project was based on a suggestion from a subscriber. They stated that they make the potpourri pots on the lathe too, but use Gel Beads. I never heard of Gel Beads and looked them up. I grabbed a piece of Wenge and got to work. I have to back up a little and apologize for not putting out a video or completing a weekly project, last week. Right before Christmas (Dec 22 or 23) my PC where I do all my editing for the YouTube videos decided it was time to retire. I cannot complain about th...

Journey into Woodturning #86: Outboard Turning

12-21-2021 12:31 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

This project was something in the plans for a long time. To maximize the size of the bowl I knew I would have to utilize the outboard turning of the midi lathe. That and I would like a large piece of wood too. I managed to get my hands on a decent size chuck of Hububalli. I never heard of this wood, but hey why not give a go. First thing I needed to do was get my hands on the extension set. The box came with a 10 inch bed extension, tool rest extender and a thread extender. I took off the ...

Journey into Woodturning #85: Pen Knife

12-14-2021 03:06 PM by MovingChips | 3 comments »

This project was requested by my cousin to convert his letter opener pen combo to a fancy wood body. However, I did not like the idea of ruining his pen. So, I tried to find a replacement tube. All the tubes I purchased, none of them were a perfect fit. I almost gave up when I took a chance on finding and found a replacement pen and letter opener. They only had 5 left in stock, so I grabbed one. I felt much more confident if wrecking a pen I bought. Once it arrived, I was ready to jump rig...

Journey into Woodturning #84: Fixing a Failure

12-07-2021 03:05 PM by MovingChips | 2 comments »

This project was the continuation of the last project that was a failure. The live edge that fell apart, has become a natural edge. I didn’t even know about the “natural edge” concept until I received so many comments on the video. I I was already designing in my head the piece would become the base for a glue up project of some sort. With some many comments I felt it had to go back on the lathe to see if we could finish it off. I started by first knocking the remaining bark off and the...
