  4. Spring Pole Lathe turned projects

    A few months ago, I built myself a small spring pole lathe and tested it with sculpture tools. Since the proof of concept worked I bought some real turning tools (carbon steel, not HSS, specifically for pole spring lathes) Although these lathes are usually related to working with green wood, I...
  5. Quick and Dirty(tm) Spring Pole / Bungee Lathe

I have never been attracted to turning as an end in itself but I regularly feel the need to...
  6. German Spring Pole Lathe

I was unable to get to Roys Class down south in April…so I had to learn from his pictured plan from his book Wedge and Edge and being a true beginner I found my way thru it…lol The wood is not...

    The rules of the day So I'm calling this the slowest shop, because thanks to the "econemy" (misspelled deliberately because it's more enemy than economy) and other life issues, just as many/most of us on here are, I'm unable to do most of the things I'd really like to do. In an earlier blog I...

    Season 1, Episode 1: Skinny Roy Underhill has a glut of mauls. I love The Woodwright's Shop. There, I said it. I have watched every episode more times than anyone has every watched anything… ever. So I decided to make a guide to the series, episode by episode, with my heavily biased wise cracks...

    What an Amazing Event! Four friends and I drove down from Minneapolis to Cedar Rapids for the 2015 Handworks Event. I was quite pleasantly surprised by how good it was. We were only there on Friday, but it went on for the whole weekend. Wow, where to start! Lots of vendors, Lots and Lots...

During the season of Lent, many Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a...
