  1. Two Platters

    Here are two platters, each about 10" in dia, that I turned while I was in Phoenix. Both are figured maple and were from blanks acquired from the local Rockler store. They were sanded to 2000 grit, given 3 coats of Min Wax Antique Oil and buffed
  2. Hair Comb - Cherry and Rosewood

    After a few previous attempts (which can be seen in my earlier projects), I think I've settled on a design that I really like. I decided to forgo the buttons on the grip, in favor of a more sleek, minimalist approach. Higher resolution images can be seen here. In particular, I'm pretty proud...
  3. Bocote Ring with Brass

    I have not posted anything in awhile,I have been in Kentucky with my dad, who has a brain tumor and has had to go thru alot of treatment and things to try and shrink it. God has been with him and my family to help us thru it. In my time while helping taking care of him, I found a little free...
  4. Horizontal Belt Sander

    I've been wanting to get a horizontal belt sander for a while. I currently own a Delta shop master, which I hate. The motor is under powered and the disk sander never worked because the set screw flew out. I could never keep anything square and then finally a little while ago the switch...
  5. Down Range Humidor

    This was requested by a friend who is currently deployed. I did the top with my carvewright. I know many think it's a skill free way of carving and I agree to an extent, but I'm busy and it was needed in a hurry. I also know I have no skill as a carver. I respect anyone who can sit down with...
  6. Twisted juniper display table pedestal for 3 head taxidermy mount

    This particular piece of juniper is actually a root that we had dug up. We used burled pine for the "tables". It took 65 hours to sandblast, sand and oil….. www.rmtwist.com
  7. Ash and Mesquite Urn with Threaded Lid

    This is a salvaged vessel I turned a few months ago. The main body was turned from ash and it split as it dried. This past week I decided to try a few new techniques rather than throw it away. The split was repaired with epoxy and colored mica. I used mesquite dovetail keys called Pewas...
  8. Chinaberry Bark Inclusion Bowl

    Here is another piece from the Chinaberry that I recently acquired. It is the same tree/wood that I turned the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase. I am very happy with the great color in this piece. I was hoping for some of the same crazy grain that the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase has but that blank was...
  9. Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair Recliner

    This is my Morris Chair. It is made from pine that I got for free from a friend of a friend's old bookshelf. When I got the wood some of it was badly warped, there were a few screw holes in a bunch of places that I had to plug, and it was discolored from years of use so I pre-sanded everything...
  10. Knot Burr Puzzle

    Boys and Girls, As a late viewer of a post, I was inspired by corel125's Wood Puzzle. Asked for the plans and was given this site (you might have to navigate to the Mechanical 3D puzzle plans screen). All relevant plans, documentation, including solutions can be found on the right page...
  11. oak tool tote

    Tool tote made from scraps of oak I had picked up, the sides are made from pieces about 11/4" wide glued up. I did buy the dowel for the handle. I made the dividers removable in case I wanted to put longer stuff in it. This was my first attempt at box joints. I had some chip out on the joints...
  12. Amboyna Burl Heart

    Anniversary present for my wife. I wanted to make something simple and symbolic. I've had this piece of amboyna burl for 2 yrs and was saving it for something special. I drew the shape of the heart. Cut it out with the bandsaw. Used the oscillating drum sander to sand up to the line I had...
  13. Keyboard Cart

    My wife is a music teacher at a small private Christian School. She doesn't get much of a budget for her classroom so I try to help out when I can. Recently she needed something mobile to put her electric keyboard on. She asked that it have an adjustable shelf for storage, and way to have...
  14. Curved Drawer Front Night Stands

    This is a set of nightstands that I've just recently completed. This was the first attempt I've made at doing any curves on a project, and I achieved the look by cutting individual pieces of 3/4' pine and laminating them together. The process was actually less time consuming than I would have...
  15. The Little Vessel That Never Did

    I had some maple burl that I've stored under my lathe for about 2 years. I just wasn't really happy with my old lathe and decided to not turn anything until I got my new Nova. Well, I chucked up this little burl in an attempt to do some sort of hollow form. In the depths of my lack of...
  16. Shop made tools #6: Ruler Stop

    Just a simple ruler stop. Made from beech and a modified brass nut. The magnet inside holds the ruler tight and ad some friction during precise setting. The last pic is a little tip: I added 2 magnets to my ruler. So I can pick up it very easily. Thanks for watching! Bas
  17. Seven Thumb Savers

    Seven more thumb savers for Christmas time recipients. These are made of oak and walnut. The secret to these is to draw them out on a board first, then drill the holes, then cut them out using the saw of your choice. I used the band saw for these. I made them with two different size thumb...

    24×32in made of oak
  19. Finishing
    I made a coffee table where the top is made from lacewood. I finished it with Watco Danish Oil and that looked fine. I've applied Johnsons paste wax to it and at certain angles, the wax looks uneven. I've had this can of wax for YEARS, so might my trouble be here? Or am I letting it get too...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi, I am looking for a motor for my future Beall buffing system. In a second hand shop I saw this motor. There is no mark or no tag on it providing info. I do not know the speed, the power, etc … They do not either. Maybe among you someone will recognize the motor and then it will help me to...
