Journey into Woodturning #1: New turner and member... feedback welcome

06-30-2020 02:04 PM by MovingChips | 2 comments »

I’m starting my first ever blog! This is great. I am a new member to LumberJocks and I am a new wood tuner. I have always been a fan of turned wood and I final decided I would give it a shot. I found the most inexpensive lathe (under $200), just in case I didn’t like it. Bought a cheap set of starter tools and a face shield, what more do I need? Turns out, (pun intended) I like spinning wood. Let me step back a little though. Before I got started, I decided to wait for an opportunity...

Packaging Ash wood to ship to Guitar Companies

02-10-2020 11:57 PM by Steve | 2 comments »

Southern White Punky Ash production was so out of sorts for the last 9 months of 2019 that our inventory was hand-to-mouth. We had a lot of back-ordered shipments and some (justifiably) angry customers Finally, we’re almost back to normal so we did a short YouTube video for two reasons: 1) Evidence that we are now sending out those backorders2) To light-heartedly apologize for our tardiness. Don’t expect to learn anything wood-wise with this one but if you want to se...

Willy’s jeep #8: Ta-da. I don’t know what else I can do. Je suis complète

08-04-2019 10:40 PM by FrenchGoattoys | 1 comment »

So, finally, I am done. I had several goals in mind when I started this project. The first was to build a Jeep and give it color and parts that provided a worn look. Second, was to interject different mediums to add a hint of detail without losing the overall wood appearance. I am certain there are pure of heart wood modelers who are cringing at the sight and cursing my name. But what the heck, I haven’t been much for boxes; they clutter my shop. Third, I wanted to make some functional parts...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #6: Details And Bringing It Together!

04-16-2019 06:01 PM by Jason1974 | 14 comments »

This is my favorite part of the build! The Details… I have been thinking about how I wanted to do the detail on the dash. I think I did a pretty good job. It’s amazing to much things slow down when you are getting to the end of the build. It’s also the scariest hoping everything fits together and looks good. ....................................Thanks For Watching!!!

Salvaged lumber table top #2: More salvaged lumber...from underwater

04-16-2019 02:23 AM by RBurke83 | 10 comments »

I saw this large piece of wood with obvious signs of being worked protruding from the stream bank behind my house about two years ago during a dry spell and had plans to remove it. No high hopes being that it has been submerged since who knows when. I finally got around to it yesterday and came to the conclusion that it would have to be cut to get it out. The bad news is, like an idiot I cut it into uneven lengths, sawing blind underwater with my pruning saw. The good news is that the wa...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #3: The Seats

04-10-2019 11:16 AM by Jason1974 | 11 comments »

Here is my version of the seats for the Hummer. Instead of making it out of one piece of wood, I divided it into 4 sections and placed a 1/8” roundover on the sides and glued them back together. The seats are made out of Walnut. I got the idea from the seats from Dutchy’s Buick build. I like that design in the seats.........................Thanks for watching!
