    Treadle Lathe

    Originally posted in Turning, but I think Hand Tools is more appropriate. ———— I built this gnarly treadle lathe from Roy Underhill’s “Lathe from a Loft” article in a past issue of Popular Woodworking. I dismantled the kids’ old playset early this summer and repurposed some of the wood to...

    Using Epoxy

    I have been turning a lot of spalted maple in the past year and some of the material was riddled with worm holes, tunnels or however you wish to label it. I have used the 5 minute epoxy from Lowes to dye and fill the voids. As many as I have I need to find a more economical source for epoxy...

    First piece complete

    I want to give a big thank you to Michael Mathews for his assistance and advice in completing my first wood turned piece. I have done very little turning - nothing from beginning to end. I completed work on a baseball bat I have worked on for a few weeks now. This bat will strictly be a...

    Received a Free Lathe

    So my father mentioned his buddy was willing to part ways with his lathe. He didn't mention any specifics but I visited VA this weekend and picked up a functioning secondhand tool. Honestly I never thought I would have a lathe, but now my possibilities for design include wood turning. I do not...

    Where to buy spindle turning blanks

    Hello, I wanted to get some opinions on places (local or online) to buy domestic/exotic kiln-dried spindle blanks. I have bought quite a few from the Raleigh Woodcraft, almost all fully encased in wax and most with MC above 20%. I am wanting to find a place that sells blanks that are already...

    2nd attempt at a goblet

    Here is the 2nd goblet I've made to date. It was turned from an old piece of cedar given to me by a friend. An inclusion in the base was left in it due to the shape of the log. Thought about cutting it off and turning a separate piece then gluing them together but the wife said she liked it...

    My first try at a goblet.

    Hi all. Had a Bradford Pear tree blow over from the storm last week so I cut it up and used a section to make my first goblet. Another first is the captive ring. Saw some turnings by Mike Mathews that had captive rings and wanted to try it myself. Used Capt'n Eddie's "Shine Juice" on it then...

    Free Turning Videos (for now)

    I've been enjoying the "Woodturning with Tim Yoder" videos. Popular Woodworking Magazine made all 24 Season 1 videos free to stream as they promote Season 2. Tim works with both traditional and carbide tools and has a fun personality, so when you aren't learning something, you can simply...

    A Couple of Great Books

    Just picked up a couple of new (well...new to ME) books this week. The first, "Bandsaw Handbook" by Mark Duginske is crammed full of useful information on setup, techniques, safety, and even projects for any bandsaw owner. I could easily recommend it to any woodworker - not just for the...
