  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Does anyone have experience running narrow blades on the Laguna 14/12? If it matters, mine is from 2017. The manual says it can use 1/8" blades, but I find a 3/16" tricky and delicate, although it works. Laguna sells a "Mini Guide" that replaces the standard guide block assembly and I'm unsure...

  3. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all –My former shop was equipped Delta stationary equipment I had bought over about 25 years – it was great but went with the house sale. So now I am getting ready to purchase equipment for a new shop and hoping to upgrade a bit – I am struggling with what to do on a couple of pieces of...

  5. Last minute easy gift: Step Stools

    I build a lot of step stools benches, stools, and shelves are easy builds and great gifts for the family. These take about 3 hours each to make after the wood is milled and ripped. I have one in the garage, and one in the house. I've found that freinds with high sitting pick up trucks really...
  6. Wolve's Vent Cover

    Scrolled from Pine. Plained down to 1/2". Routed out the back center for the metal vent to sit flush.
  7. Keepsake box

    I made this box for my daughters 12th birthday. This was my first attempt at mitered joints, as well as my first splines. I am pretty pleased with the results. Box is cherry, inlay and splines are birds eye maple Finish boiled linseed oil and paste wax
  8. Patagonian Rosewood

    This project was to make a simple individual's salad bowl and use Ack's Wood Paste for the first time. Ack's donated a starter kit to me, after watching my video on turning wig stands I donated to a local breast cancer clinic. So I put it to the test on this Patagonian Rosewood. Here's this...
  9. Bug killer

    This project was made from necessity, kind of. I found these tea light citronella candles that are used as a insect repellent and thought, "Yeah, I haven't turned a tea light holder in a while." Luckily, I recent came into some cocobolo in small form for this project. Here's this weeks video...
  10. Cigar Ashtray

    I had a perfect piece of Box Elder for this project and wasted no time getting on the lathe. I used a faceplate to get the bottom turned. I attempted to use the elf decorating tool, but failed. I'm sure it's my fault and not the tool or wood. Finished with O.B. Shine Juice Here's this weeks...
  11. Display plate/dome

    I picked up the 9-inch cake dome and managed to have just the right size wood for the project. I am pretty sure this is African Mahogany, but I could be wrong. Here's this weeks video: Display plate/dome
  12. DEATH of a LATHE - Ambrosia Maple Potpourri Project

    Ambrosia Maple Potpourri Box with Pewter Lid. That was going to be the title for this video. Little did I know the lathe was going to finally show its true colors and call it quits. The WEN lathe has served me well and taught me a great deal. I learned so many things while turning projects over...
  13. Candle Holder

    This project really started with the wood. I saw the beautiful figure in the wood of the 4×4 and thought it would make a nice candle holder. So I set out to make it so. Here's this weeks video: Candle Holder
  14. First attempt at Mortar & Pestle

    It almost seems like a rite of passage to turn a mortar and pestle. For this project, the wood I choose was ribbon sapele. I got myself a 5 inch round by 4 inch tall piece for the mortar and a 3×3x6 for the pestle. Both were kiln dried from Got Wood? and ready for the lathe. The mortar was the...
  15. Gray Box Potpourri

    This project turned into a wonderful surprise. I never heard of Gray Box before and this piece was not listed as a burl, so yay… big surprise. Beyond the burl, the wood cut beautifully, and the exposed grain was fantastic. Here's this weeks video: Gray Box Potpourri
  16. Dalmata Salad Bowl

    This project turned into a humble reminder that I am still new to turning. The wood looks great, I just did not do it justice. I need more practice on larger turnings. Here's this weeks video: Dalmata Salad Bowl Thanks
  17. Red Elm Fat Candle Holder

    I have seen these wide or thick candles and the pedestal holders for them. I thought I would give it a try and got a piece of red elm, 4×4x6. I drew out a concept of what I thought the piece would (or should) look like. As I got it round and secured in the chuck, I felt like I was challenged...
  18. Shaving Kit Stand & Bowl

    This project was really three projects in one. Brush handle, stand stem and bowl. I am almost certain my brother will love this piece and will put it to good use. Here's this weeks video: Shaving Kit Stand & Bowl Thanks
  19. Peace Pot

    This project was a gift request. Potpourri pots make great gifts and do not have to be used just for smelly stuff. The bowl/lids make a great miniature jewelry box, spare coin bin, etc. This lid looks like a peace dove. Here's this weeks video: Peace Pot Thanks
  20. Three Piece Jewelry Box!

    Really pushed the challenge meter up a notch on this adventure. I attempted to make a jewelry box with four different pieces of wood. I turned a maple burl bowl, American lacewood inserted bowl, curly maple lid and the finial was supposed to be African blackwood. Problem 1. The maple burl had a...
