Lidded Boxes #15: Beall Buffing System for Finish Wax Coat

12-20-2016 08:16 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

My experience prior to this huge project was I had only turned two bowls plus I performed a test to see if I could turn a lidded bowl with a scrap piece of Douglas Fir. Those two bowls I turned was nearly a year ago and after I had taken a Woodcraft lidded box class at my local store. The instruction was great. Getting personal attention let me know how delicate cuts are needed at times. We were given instructions on how to sharpen the turning chisels, but that skill was not acquired until ...

Lidded Boxes #8: More Bowl Work and Finally Some Work on Lidded Boxes

Tonight I continued turning the two bowls that I started yesterday. The tasks for today was to insure the tenons were made and would fit snuggly onto the four jaw chuck I own. The tenons diameter would be 2 inches and dovetailed to fit my chuck. I suited up better tonight. I did not protect myself as I should have yesterday. So I spent some time making sure my respirator was clean and fitted with new filters. I cleaned my goggles that I was going to wear over my glasses and under my f...
