  1. Shop Made Grinder Tool Rest

    I finally got tired of the wimpy little tool rests that came with my grinder, and made this thing. It's much better. Check my blog for more information and a set of detailed drawings for building your own. -Russ
  2. First turned Cane

    1st of all, this is a collaborated project between my neighbor & me. My neighbor (he is over 80), asked me if I would turn a cane for him out of a 3"x3" piece of Poplar he had layin round his garage for a long time. He still does a little woodworkin himself, but, he doesn't have a lathe. He...
  3. Bench

    This is a bench that I built as an anniversary present for my wife. She mentioned that she would like to have a place to store the kids toys on the screened porch. So I surprised her by building this while she was away with her family. It is made up of 3/4" sandply, beadboard, and pine...
  4. Ole Smokey

    This is actually American walnut that was smoked on its edges for a rustic looking bentwood ring. This was a fun and new process for my bentwood rings and I was quickly reminded that wood does actually burn easily. :) Do ya'll (yes, Texas) like the look? I wonder how other woods would...
  5. End grain cutting board

    Made in shop class. End grain cutting board. Padauk wood. Tung oil finish.
  6. Last of the Surround Sound Speakers

    This is my last pair of speakers I'll make for our new Surround Sound TV room. Like the earlier pair I made I needed to determine the optimum volume for these particular speakers. After all the calculations, I designed the box that was closest to this volume. First off, I had to repair the...
  7. Homemade oland tool.

    After watching hundreds of videos about the oland tool i decided to go for it and make one and I was not prepared to spend over $50 for one. Every plan i saw online asks for a cold rolled steel rod but I didn't want the hassle to try to drill it so I decided to use an already drilled rod ( $6.99...
  8. bench grinder tool rest

    This is my first project on this forum…..and to be honest, whilst its a very quick and perhaps "rough" build…it sort of represents some of the things I really enjoy in woodworking. I'm starting to love making tools, tool jigs and the like. Whilst I have used some machinery to get through this...
  9. The tool rest evolves.... and World Series Prediction

    With the new lathe comes the need for a new tool rest. The Nova has a heavy duty angled tool rest vs the Jet mini lathe round tool bar. The upside down angle iron did sit flat on the Nova tool rest and it was shaking a lot. Simple solution, I attached a hose clamp to the angle iron and tool...
  10. The Cheapest Sharpening Tool Rest/Jig - Shop-made Grinder Tool Rest (Retired)

    You can make a tool rest from scraps and a few bolts and wing nuts and use it to aid your sharpening chores (hollow grind for chisels and plane irons, for example, or removing nicks on their edges or even spindle gouge sharpening). I built one in 2005 and after serving me loyally for some 8...
  11. Woodturning
    Hi all, I have the HF Mini lathe (http://www.harborfreight.com/8-inch-x-12-inch-bench-top-wood-lathe-95607.html) and in my time owning it for 3 years have broken the tool rest on it twice, in the same way. I get a catch and it snaps the crossbar from the post on the tool rest. Unfortunately, HF...
  12. Woodturning
    with so many options out there I figure it best to get opinions from experienced folk. I want a good tool rest for doing bowl so I can do a good continuous cut on bowls. I do mostly bowls around 9-15" range and usually not much more than 6" deep. I am considering a robust rest but only want to...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My girlfriend just gave me my first lathe for my birthday. It is the Central Machinery #34706 12" X 36" with reversable head. She also bought me a set of HSS tools. I am wanting to turn bowls but I have no clue what I am doing, haha. I have watched a lot of videos on the web and think I've...

    Today I bought a Nova modular 12" tool rest for my Rikon mini lathe. After installing it, I realized that it wasn't level, or aligned with the bed of the lathe or the axis of rotation of the turning stock. Reversing it gives the same result: it is about 1/8" lower on the headstock side. I am...
  15. Woodturning
    I fired up the welder and made some tool rests for my new lathe today. I first converted my old 6" pinnacle modular tool rest's shaft by welding it to a 1" rod (could have bought their 1" post, but it's machined too small according to the reviews and I'm trying to avoid extra vibration). Then...

    FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT! Maybe "LOVE" is a strong word. But I'm really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It's been over a year in...

    Grinder and Beltsander Setup Gauges When you sharpen your own chisels and wood turning knives, you'll find it necessary to set your grinder or sander support table to different angles for different tools. Of course, you'll find it necessary to repeat the previously set angle, to avoid...

    Hardly worth posting but sometimes a simple solution works well. My only tool rest is 9" and too long for short turnings so I mounted a piece of plywood to a black pipe and flange that I normally use to hold a table for disc sanding and wouldn't ya know, it works better than my normal tool rest...
