Stanely No 31 Restoration

12-29-2020 07:17 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I found this plane online for a very good price, one that couldn’t be passed up even with no info. The seller didn’t include and marking on the body or the iron so it was a shot in the dark. At first glance you could barley make out the name Stanley so i was already in good shape. Then looked at the metal parts and they look like they had surface rust on them which should have been an easy cleanup job. After all said and done, the iron was shot, but the body looks great. Check out...

Journey into Woodturning #35: Largest Fruit Bowl I ever turned!

12-29-2020 04:47 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

Ambrosia… with a SURPRISE!! Maple is a wonderful wood to work. It is not very hard and can be finished to a nice luster. In this piece I was granted a bonus, as I discovered some absolutely stunning curly maple in the bowl section of the wood. Now this was the second time I turned a fruit bowl, but it was the first time I turned a fruit bowl this big on the new lathe. It really was not my intention to turn the large fruit bowl to the same look as the first small fruit bowl, but it certainl...

Life happenings #22: An update on the church we bought

12-29-2020 01:10 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Things are progressing slowly in our new home. Hundreds of tiny projects that eat up a lot of time, yet they don’t seem to make a lot of visual difference. Starting from scratch with a new build is so much easier than going over something that has been in place for a long time and “upgraded” over the years. Such has been our experience way up here in the north. We are making progress though. Some days it seems it’s not progressing fast enough though. Of course, t...

One More Guitar #15: With a big sigh I post a final disappointing video: It's done...

12-26-2020 07:28 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

So, Guitar is finished but humidity differences from fall to winter raised havoc with it. The neck took a set with extreme low humidity and it’s a buzzer. Even got a humidity crack in the top. Not much to do about it short of neck removal can fix it. I actually kept my fingers crossed that this wouldn’t happen. I used to have a climate controlled closet for keep this in check. With making guitars it’s very important. The Weather went from fall monsoons to winter super dryness. Anyway, the fin...

Journey into Woodturning #34: Safety Razor

12-25-2020 03:19 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

Safety Razor? Just like the trend in growing a beard and not needing a shave, times are changing. There seems to be a resurgence in the classic shave. Some have taken the risk at straight razors, but many have turned to less dangerous alternative like the Safety Razor. I knew going into the project I wanted a strong wood that was a burl. I was pleasantly surprised that the Coolibah is not only a very strong wood, but is nearly always in burl form. Link to the video: Red Coolibah Burl Sa...

Journey into Woodturning #33: Funnel Bowl Failure!

12-23-2020 03:09 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

Second attempt at the Etimoe. Using the face plate was much better, but still a failure. After using the worm screw on the first attempt and switching to the face plate, I did not put the plate on the correct side. I realized the issue after turning it round. I suppose I could have turned around again, but that would mean it would have several holes from the screws on the bottom through the bowl. I decided one big hole would be easier to fix then several small holes. Getting past the fu...

Journey into Woodturning #32: Failure on the biggest bowl...

12-22-2020 03:45 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

Bigger machine, bigger wood! I tried to turn an 11×4 piece of Etimoe. First attempt at a big bowl was met with disaster. It turns out the wood was off balance, evidence by the pith of a branch on one side. With the dense wood on one side and lighter wood on the other side, the wobble was too much for me. I switched to a piece of Sapele, in 11×4. Here I discovered my second problem, I used a worm screw rather than a face plate. However, I didn’t think about this until the end when...

Furnishing a Sauna Suite #7: End Back Rests

12-16-2020 03:49 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Similar Construction These end back rests are of similar construction to the top bench back rest. I used seven slats like the top bench back rest. Situational awareness “One”, Mark “Zero!” Installed After sitting with these a bit, we decided to recline them 12 degrees. I cut the angles at the top and bottom of the frame with a Japanese pull saw. During installation, I fastened the bottom to the bench and the top to the wall with screws....
