  1. Carbide tip turning tools

    303 stainless, ground, drilled and tapped to take replacement tips I get from woodcraft. They have two rear handles, the increasing slope at the top I use when holding the handle in place under my arm, the ball at the tip is a reverse hand hold when roughing.
  2. Handles for my DIY carbide turning tools

    I was going to buy myself some carbide turning tools for Christmas but I was in sticker shock after looking at the prices of a descent set. So, I went on YouTube and after watching several videos of others making their own I decided to give it a try. The handles are turned from 1 /3/8" square...
  3. Woodturning Depth Gauges

    I love shop made tools and have wanted some depth gauges for my turning projects. These are based on a design I found online posted by a fellow named Dolan Brown from North Carolina, thanks. The larger is 13×1 3/4×1" and has a 3/16" brass rod that's 10" long. The smaller is 6×1 x 1" and has a...
  4. Dutch (Turning) Tool Chest

    I built this Dutch Tool Chest to hold my turning tools. I wanted a chest where each turning chisel was easily accessible during use and for storage and somewhere I could keep all of my turning equipment in one place. The chest has a height adjustable rack built into the back of the chest to...
  5. round box

  6. Homemade Woodturning Tools - Hollowing Tool

    Today I made a hollowing tool for my lathe starting from an Allen wrench. You can see the "making of" video here: I first saw this kind of tool on Sam Angelo's Youtube channel. I turn mostly miniatures, so I made a small one, but it can be made in any size using the same method.
  7. first lathe project, Birch.

    Finally found a suitable motor to turn a lathe a friend gave me. It's rough but did the job. The wood is actually from my firewood pile. turned out kinda cool.(excuse the pun). I now have the lathe bug to add to other project passions. More tools required shhh don't tell the wife. Has anyone...
  8. Oak Spoon, Maple scoop and tools

    The first one is a long handled scoop that I was just messing around. The second is the oak spoon I blogged about yesterday. The tools are the latest ones in my turning arsenal. Capn Eddie Castelin calls the the detailing duo. The round cutter is a 12mm carbide cutter.
  9. Cart for Turning Tools

    A few months back we had remodeling done in the basement to add a half bath and greatly increase the size of my workshop. It seemed that for a long time after that, most of my time in the shop was spent setting things up and getting organized. I rebuilt my work bench, built my version of a...
  10. My first post here

    Here are a few boxes that I have made recently. Whilst most of my projects are bigger than these, it is boxes that give me a lot of pleasure. The box at the back comproses of four smaller boxes - a base, sitting on this a larger box, an on this two smaller boxes. The light timber is huon pine...
  11. Shop Stuff

    This is the back side of the clamp rack I posted 2 days ago. Since I finished my grandaughter's bed in December, I've been on a mission to organize my shop. Sometimes that is overwhelming, but at least I'm making progress. I sure feel better when my shop looks good, and it sure makes working...
  12. Stained rim bowl

    Made from tulip wood about 8" diameter. The rim is stained with red spirit stain. First project after christmas
  13. home made turning tools

    This is a turning tool that I made especially for small hollow forms, bird houses and Christmas ornaments. I picked up the steel from Tractor Supply. It was roughed out on a metal cutting band saw and then shaped using rasps and files. The tip where the cutter sits was drilled at a 30 degree...
  14. More carbide tip tool handles, lightsaber detailer

    Here are some more of my custom handles. Yes, my detailer is modeled after a lightsaber. It was one of my very 1st, learning from my mistakes. The square steel stock is too small which allows for vibration. It works great but limits my reach. Next one will be 1/2 303 stainless. The solid oak...
  15. hollowing rig - my version

    There are several professionally made and marketed hollowing rigs on the market. One thing that they all have in common is that they are all expensive. That being said, I decided to look at what was available and see if anyone had attempted to build a home made rig. Thanks to Capt. Eddy...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Been trying to regrind turning tools. What are the correct angles for: Skew, Bowl Gouge, Spindle Gouge, and Scraper? Can you apply Poly over "Tung Oil Finish", not the 100% tung oil, but the Home Depot version? Can you use Polyurethane on bowls that may hold fruit? And if not, what do you use...

It shows a lot of the stuff I do in wood turning, and also shows the tools I invented. www.woodturnerstools.com Check it out and please give me some feedback to make it better. You can do that on the contact page in the comment...
  18. Woodturning
    So, bought a smallish lathe and a few HSS turning tools from Lee Valley. Also bought a Wolverine sharpening jig for my 8" slow speed grinder. However….there seems to be 10000 different opinions about how to sharpen lathe tools. Several of the books I have on turning recommend just using 80 grit...

    UPDATED: January 2013 When you've been a member of an online site for some time you take a lot of features for granted. Sometimes you forget that something is there and sometimes you just didn't know it was available in the first place. Here is a list of some of our LumberJocks.com features...

    home made tools I recently posted a platter on the projects page. I mentioned that I used a home made chatter tool on this. Karson asked that I post a picture of the chatter tool with the project. The photo shows an assortment of lathe tools, some home made some store bought. My challenge...
