  1. A couple more wooden finger rings.

    Here are just a couple of more wooden finger rings I made. They darker one is walnut with a crushed sea shell inlay, my first real attempt at inlay. The lighter one is cedar and is pretty thin, more like a wedding band. These are made in the lamination style, I am trying to work out the kinks in...
  2. Puzzle pen - Woodcraft edition

    I've been toying with the idea of making one of these for a while. Stopped by my local Woodcraft store on the way back from picking up 75BF of 4/4 and 5/4 poplar for an upcoming project (Shaker style set-back cupboard). Decided to go ahead and get the kit since Woodcraft has a $10 off coupon...
  3. Coffee Scoop

    I guess this is another mini-review of sorts… Bought a coffee scoop kit, Penn State Industries p/n PKCSCOOP through Wood-n-Whimsies (Wood-N-Whimsies) and the appropriate bushings. FYI, W-n-W sells PSI kits in singles at the same price as the first quantity discount as direct from PSI. All in...
  4. A Choir of Angels

    BACK IN 2008!!! I got the idea for these Angels from http://lumberjocks.com/projects/7192. If you look at the posting, you will see that I made a comment that I wanted to make some for the ladies were I worked at the time. Well, I finally got around to doing them this fall, only EIGIHT years...
  5. Bottle stoppers

    These are some of the first bottlestoppers I've turned. I sanded to 600 and final sanded with an "OO" equivalent scotchbrite pad. The finish is a ca finish with two coats of then and two coats of medium. I like to turn these because there's no preset form, it just takes shape as you're going...
  6. 2-in-1 bottle stopper

    Well that's it. This is my official cry for help. I've got it. I've got the turning bug. It started with a few pens after school, which didn't seem like a big deal. And now I can't help the fact that its escalating to other projects like this. I don't show interest in furniture building...
  7. 3 Fountain Pens (my first sold projects!) and a Pencil

    I finished up these 3 fountain pens for a friend today. My first sold pieces! They are zircote, walnut and rosewood. I tried really hard to make sure that when the cap was screwed to the top that the grain lines would match up, but then I forgot to line up the clip and the nib, worked out on...
  8. Bentwood Rosewood Ring Jewelry

    Bending wood is hard…until it's soft. ;) Not sure how many girls are on this forum but no matter. I have enjoyed looking at many awesome projects here and thought to throw some of mine into the mix. This is my first bentwood ring I ever sold and it was a huge hurdle for me as it took lots...
  9. Longhorn desk

    Longhorn desk-Tought I would share my latest in my "theme" desks. It is made of Walnut and Mesquite. Also there is a picture of the chair made to go with it. The desk features an original oil painting of a Longhorn, handshaping throughout, mesquite burl and carved handles. These "Theme" desks...
  10. Cactus Wood Bracelet And Ring

    Prickly Pear cactus wood skeleton cast in alumilite clear resin painted black on the backside(thanks to turntex.com for tips) turned on the lathe. Both ring and bracelet mounted on stainless steel cores from bangleguy.com . CA finish polished with plastx polish.
  11. Fiddleback Mahogany Ring

    Fiddleback Mahogany ring made of steamed veneer laminated CA glued together and CA finished. This wood looks awesome in the sun.
  12. Razor handle in Koa

    This is my first try at a razor handle. The wood is Curly Koa with a CA finish to resist exposure to water, etc. The kit is the Mach 3 Black T/N from PSI. I'm very pleased with how it came out and I plan to keep it for myself! :) As always, comments are welcome! I actually finished this about 6...
  13. Walnut pen

    I just got my first lathe (Turncrafter 12") and after some practice with my tools I turned out my first pen! I think it came out pretty good. There are some minor checks in the finish but overall it is super smooth and the CA finish is going to last a long time! What do you all think?
  14. Woodturning
    Hi everyone, I got a good question from a buyer about what cleaners to use for pens with a CA finish. He works retail and wants to remove germs more than grime/dirt. He was looking at citrus based cleaners (all-purpose spray), and I found that 3M makes a much more powerful citrus cleaner that...
  15. Blogs
    3D Printing in the Workshop While this topic doesn't strictly fit into the guidelines of timber product, it does incorporate the processing of said prerequisite, however, to err on the side of veto wizards I decided to blog instead of projecting it. We need to set the mood! Once...
  16. Finishing
    Hi All - i've been making a few ring shaped objects (bracelet, rings) on my lathe. To do the rings, I made a tapered mandrel and have been been just pressure fitting the rings on to shape them. I've tried experimenting with CA finish, with varying success, but I have a fairly consistent problem...

    Making a Pen...A Decal Pen... I just accidentally deleted my blog entry so lets try this again… These are pens that I made for a few of friends for their Businesses. I used testors decal paper like Kerux has so eloquently portrayed. I should probably mention that these were gifts. I did not...
  18. Finishing
    Hi all, I would like to get some pointers on using CA as a finish for my wood bangles. I have tried thin and medium CA, wiping on the CA and then using wet sanding starting at 1000 grit. Problem is that I wet sand through the CA. I reapply the CA and repeat the process, but it seems as though...
  19. Hand Tools
    I have started making my own hand plane totes and knobs and am wondering about what other LJs feel is the safest method for routing a 1/2in round-over on a new tote? I am not talking about rounding completely by hand. Even Lee Valley references using a router to do this task of rounding over...
