Treadle Lathe #12: Headstock

02-09-2019 03:16 PM by LastingBuild | 1 comment »

The headstock went through several design changes prior to the build. I originally planned to mount the spindle drive wheel (3’ pulley) between the first two posts. I realized the stock was not going to be long enough for the spindle height I wanted. I settled on laminating 6×6 oak stock. The headstock is hollow from front to back with the spindle drive wheel mounted between on a 3/8” rod. The rod is fixed into the headstock with bearings and stop collars. The He...

Treadle Lathe #9: Flywheel finally done!

01-02-2019 02:28 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

It took some sweat equity but the flywheel is finally done. I ordered a few extra bow saw blades this time in case of another blade failure. Now that the flywheel is mounted in the lathe frame, it is really starting to take some shape. Once I get the bearing installed in the frame, I believe the flywheel will spin almost as good as my kids fidget spinners! Thanks for watching and following my build! View on YouTube

Ever seen a stopped miter joint?

10-31-2018 01:12 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I’m in the process of building my woodworking tool cabinet and I had to cut a stopped miter joint. I’d never done this before and never heard of it before. It was a unique situation and thought I would share the experience on video. https://youtu.be/oXllBvNLIoE What are your thoughts? Scott

Switching from Sketchup to Freecad

I am trying to switch from Sketchup to Freecad. And I already found my first two tutorials for woodworkers:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERc7VPF8ofMandhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDPv9tBcjGE Maybe it is useful for other woodworkers too.

Amazing Workbench Build |Hand tool Woodworking

10-18-2018 04:41 PM by LastingBuild | 1 comment »

A few months ago, I posted pictures of my Paul Sellers Workbench and received a really big response. I linked it to my build series on youtube. The series is too long for most people to watch so I condensed it into 5 minutes (over 15 hours of video footage). I hope my video inspires others to build one of their own. This experience has changed my practice of woodworking forever. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzHMfhUK4R0&t=1s

Treadle Lathe #3: Cutting Joinery

10-11-2018 12:52 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Making progress on the lathe. In the last post, I laid out the ways (the horizontal boards that the head stock, tail stock and tool rest sit on) and in this episode I cut four tenons and two housing dados! This project is definitely taking longer than expected but I’m happy with the current progress and I’m confident it will be worth the effort. Working with oak has been a learning curve in comparison to pine. View on YouTube I can’t wait to be turning wood with a f...

Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking #2: What i have learned about Video View numbers

04-05-2018 01:53 AM by rustednail | 2 comments »

One thing I have learned with the youtube channel thus far is that you never know which videos are going to get more views than others. I have made a few videos that I felt were going to do well and get lots of views, likes and comments but got almost nothing. On the other hand, one of the most watched videos I have on my channel is one that I recorded and edited quickly and without a lot of thought behind it. This video in particular didn’t have many views for the first week, but it seems to...

Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking #1: Learning how to shoot woodworking videos

03-30-2018 04:37 PM by rustednail | 5 comments »

So i recently began making videos and posting them on YouTube. I didn’t really have high hopes for the channel because i know very little about making content that people may actually want to watch. I also was concerned about shooting videos slowing down my production and causing more headache than it is worth. But none the less i began the video journey. To my surprise, i have found the added element of making videos to be a motivator. I am now constantly thinking up new and uniqu...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #19: Are there any left? (rant)

03-21-2018 06:47 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

Lately I’ve been paring down the YouTube woodworks that I regularly watch. It seems that many of the ones I enjoyed have either decided to showcase their CNC’s, go into blacksmithing, go long format, or just vlog instead of build projects. Some have realized that you can’t get rich doing videos and have pretty much given up. The few that I watch with any loyalty are Steve Ramsey (when he pits out a project video), Matthias Wandel and mostly John Heisz. I like John’s...

Road Trip Highlights, NEW Twin Screw Vise, David Marks Class, and more...

12-28-2017 07:54 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

<div>Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code</div> I drove from Minneapolis to Santa Rosa, CA to take a class with David Marks and it was great! I also got a sneak peak at a brand new Twin Screw Vise design by Andy Klein. I think this one will actually make it to market, and hopefully it will be soon! Other highlights from my 5000 mile road trip. Charlie
