Moravian Workbench #4: Turning the vise screw

09-12-2019 11:52 AM by Tom | 2 comments »

Now that the vise is operational, I wanted to turn a more pleasing shape on the vise hub. The challenge is locating the turning centers for the lathe. On the screw end, there were marks that appeared to be centered, so I could use that for the drive center. However, on the hub side, it was just a smooth flat surface. I used a simple method to locate a good center. I set the hub end on a piece of plywood and nailed four brackets around the hub to restrain it from moving laterally. ...

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...

Experimental segmented turning

03-17-2019 02:28 PM by stefang | 27 comments »

I turned some narrow disk shaped weed vases from solid birch quite a few years ago. Early last year I decided to do some segmented turning again after a lapse of a few years and I thought it might be fun to try a segmented version of those disk shaped vases I had made before, but only out of pine since this wasn’t a keeper, and no finish was applied. I didn’t have my wedgie sled built yet to cut the segments on the my table saw so I had to use my band saw instead with an improv...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #12: Split nut screwdriver

03-16-2019 06:43 PM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

Lots of projects as every other LJ’er but this Split nut screwdriver is (in my mind) a good looking success. Like every project I do there is always something else I need before I get started on the main event. The Split nut Screwdrivers started because 1) so many LJ’ers have made so many really cool saws and 2) I have a couple of old back saw plates and 3) I REALLY needed a project for the LJ Spring Swap… :-) Casting about LJ and the net I came up wiith sever...

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #4: Project 4 - baby rattle

01-31-2019 11:28 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

Where I work, there are many people having babies. Like at least 3 – 4 a year in just the circles of people I know (I work at a big company). A couple years ago, I started making baby rattles for some of them. It was fun, and they were very appreciated. I hadn’t made one for several months (a couple new parents didn’t get rattles), but I was motivated to make one for this series. I have previously made single ended rattles – they were cute but tended to look like ti...

Segmented Pyrography Design #1: Overview of a segmented pyrography project.

12-16-2018 01:41 AM by Julian | 11 comments »

I found a crochet pattern that I thought would make an interesting pattern on a turning. First step is to make the rings. 12 segments per ring made with soft maple. Soft maple is very white compared to most other woods and will contrast nicely with the burned pattern lines. The turning will be made in two halves which makes it much easier to shape the inside. After the two halves are glued together I finish shaping the outside and the top. Now it is time to transfer the design o...

Building a REAL Lathe Part 1

10-08-2018 02:55 PM by RexKrueger | 3 comments »

Friends: There are a lot of DIY wood lathes out there, but most of those are small, low-power machines that won’t handle large pieces of wood, do bowls, or handle long spindles. I’m in the middle of building a REAL lathe with 16 inches of swing and 32 inches between centers. By itself, this wouldn’t be such a big deal, but I’m going to build this lathe for LESS than $150 and I’m using common materials and tools that any woodworker either has or can get thei...
