  1. Woodturning
    This began as a skew exercise - still trying to master it. When papa was finished I was feeling cocky so decided to give mama a try. Well then I had to try for a wee one. They’re made from 3 laminations of hard maple. These were done 2 years ago. My wife does tole/folk art painting and she was...
  2. Windsor Legs, Posts -- Don't Give Up Hope!

    Well, since I've been running around the world, quite literally, haven't had much time to get back on the Windsor pony and get to my Boston side chairs. I did, however, get back into the shop over T-giving and finished up turning the legs and side posts for the two chairs I'm building to go...
  3. Saddle for 4" dust collection hose

    Here's a simple easy to make birch ply saddle to hold a standard 4" diameter dust collection hose. I replaced the two M6 screws on the dust collector flang with longer ones. I got tired of tripping over it, stepping on it and bending over to pick it off the floor. I move the hose from machine...
  4. Brian Havens inspired skew chisels

    Watched some Brian Havens videos on YouTube and got inspired to make my own skew chisels this weekend. Turned a tiny gobblet just to test them out. I am thrilled with the performance of the skews. 3/8" Tool steel (O1 steel) cutters, scrap oak handles, finished with rubbed and sanded BLO; my...

  6. 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...

  8. First Turned Items: Cigar Pens

    I never see pen photos being posted, maybe they are a little overplayed, but please cut me a little slack… these four pens are my first turnings and I wanted to show them off. Two of the pens with Black Chrome fittings and crazy grain are Swetenia Mahogany, while the two tone pen is heavily...
  9. New handles for Lie-Nielsen chisels

    Turned some new handles for my Lie-Nielsen chisels today. The first two are a piece of maple I stabilized back in MN more than 3 years ago. I finally found a use for it. ;-) The third photo (second handle) is a scrap of cherry that was sitting in the shop waiting for a purpose. All have a flat...

  11. Khaya knob for spice grinder

    I have a CrushGrind coffee grinder I bought way back when they did their Kickstarter. I use it for grinding spices. Yesterday I dropped it and the plastic knob that came with it broke, so today I decided to fix that. I had a piece of Khaya (African mahogany) about 2×2x4 inches, and I chucked it...
  12. Toys for the Christmas Bureau

    Here a few simple tool boxes my friend Don and I made for the local Christmas Bureau. Mostly from what we had around the shop. Even the paint was what was available. Took us a few hours on Wednesday night to cut all the parts. Painted the sides separately from the main structure to get good...
  13. 14'x26' deck

    This is a 14'x26' deck I just finished yesterday. Since it was 9' off the ground, I had to get an extra set of hands for this one. It took me 3.5 days to finish. I used 2×12's for my joists on 16" centers to make sure I took all the bounce out of it. It ended up super strong. This one also...

  15. First Spline Box

    Hey to all my fellow LJ's, I know it's been a while but I'm still not at 100% after my second back surgery. Ok, enough of that mess….. This is my first splined box. Made from solid cherry. This was a rough sawn piece so I didn't have a clue what the wood would turn out to be. Boy was I happy...
  16. Garden Pergola

    My Grandaughter, Hannah and I built a pergola to be attached to her playhouse. She helped me all of the way.
  17. Lathe tool holder

    Finally got around to makiing this project. Been wanting to get to this since October. Nice winter weekend project. (Also showing the snow we had this week). Sides and shelves are 3/4" MDF, back is 5/8" plywood, front face is scrap walnut. Painted white (still drying) and wipe-on poly finish...
  18. Freedom Pens

    I turned out a batch of 25 Freedom Pens this weekend and got them ready to mail back to the project administrators. These are a mix of hard maple and red oak, all finished with O.B.'s Shine Juice. I think turning pens is a good skill-building exercise. These were done with the lathe running at...

  20. Woodturning
    The lathe is running finally, and I'm re-learning what little I knew years ago about turning and sharpening. In sorting out the various tools, ran across an unused set (cheapo) that has an oval skew in it. I've mostly used a flat skew, a little experience with the radiused skew. After reading...
