  1. First box

    Made my first lidded box. It is salted maple. It is around 5.5 inches wide a 4 inches high. The only finish I put on was Shellawax.
  2. maple bowl with a funky edge

    A little maple bowl about 8" diameter and a couple inches deep. Probably one of the very first bowls I turned to finish green. I wanted to try an idea for embellishing and dug this one out of the pile. I was trying to make it look like it could have, may have occurred naturally but not sure. Rattle can lacquer finish. Can't really tell from the pictures but it's got a nice little warp going on, it's about 3/4" longer than it is wide. Steve
  3. Rifle Case Done

    Finally gotter done.
  4. A maple bowl

    A maple bowl in kind of a tulip shape, 12" diameter and 4" deep. I thought about "framing" the pattern with some heavy shading around the edge, decided not to and just left it plain. I turned this to be functional so it has bees wax for a finish. Steve
  5. Well, looks like I may be coming up for air soon! Been since the beginning of August since I've done some serious work in my shop. I just finished cleaning up and making my shop look like a workable space, and I set my Curly Maple Shaker Rocker on the bench that I started 5 months ago. I'm feeling pretty good here. I have my shop back! Dogs are enjoying the space too. I will sleep good tonight, the world is right again! Happy dogs!
  6. Cutting up a maple tree

    Long and wordy, go away now if you're smart. Regulars know I've had a good year. Spent a whole week learning from Glenn Lucas, more recently did a workshop day Cindy Drozda. Glenn's main source of income is bowls, lots of them. He will routinely process around three hundred or more bowls at a time, I think that's right. Everything from chainsawing the blanks to drying, to finishing. He has retail outlets that sell his bowls and order regularly. Cindy Drozda is known for her delicate finials, elegant hollow forms and working with exotic one of a kind pieces of wood. Most of her items are one off and sell for a pretty penny. She also makes money from selling tools. Today, I started working up the maple log I posted a picture of earlier this week. Put on my carharts, my steel toed boots, my loggers helmet and ear plugs, my leather gloves, etc. etc. etc. Fired up the chainsaw, muscled the blanks around and trimmed them up, coated them with sealer, stacked them, etc. etc. Arms feel like rubber tonight, legs are sore, back aches a little. After much reflection I have decided...Cindy has a better plan than Glenn. Steve
  7. Child's high chair from an older issue Woodsmith magazine as a Christmas gift to some new grandparents/parents. The original plans have this as a "knock-down" unit but I made it permanent. Made from hard maple (walnut plugs). Water based poly finish (thanks for the advice on raising the grain). Tray is removable/adjustable and it has a seat belt. This is the second one of these I've made. Already delivered and to my amazement, it seemed to fit the size of the child! Thanks for looking!
  8. Cube within a cube and maple score.

    Steve Twydell, whose youtube channel is "templeboy turnings" did a video on turning a "cube within a cube". It's kind of a neat project because you actually start with a cylinder and then turn it square before forming the inner cube. It's pretty much been a lesson in humility but after several attempts I had a limited success. No finish, no sanding on this as I'm still learning. The hardest part, at least for me, has been to get everything square. After that, it's pretty straightforward. Here's a link to his video. cube in a cube In other news that matters to no one but me, I scored a huge maple log this week. Close to 30' feel long and 24"+ at the butt. Got my work cut out for me. Steve
  9. I gotta get me some maple boards. I have this little wood rail that I fasten to one side. it gives me a two sided reference to get my forst teo sort of square and sort of flat surfaces.
  10. Have most of the Maple parts cut to rough sizes....saw blade is set up, connectors done. Goal is to make a Frame Saw... Will get a few pictures, later. Today being a Monday, after all Traditional Chinese Woodworking site has a bunch of videos ( in Mandarin) and a few show the fellow building such a saw. My feeble attempt will be close to what he is doing. I still need a 1/4" all-thread, a wing nut and washer to match..for use as the top cord to tension the saw blade. Tore a couple old Butcher's saws down for some of the parts. So, do I post this saw build here, or..in the Hand tool section?
  11. Got some new bowl gouges

    Most anyone who visits this forum will know I spent a week at Marc Adams in September. The guest teacher was Glenn Lucas. During that week I had the opportunity to use some of his signature bowl gouges. I was very impressed with the cut I got from them, enough so that I ordered his 1/2", 5/8", and the 5/8" bottom feeder bowl gouges. This is the first bowl I've used them on. It is hard maple, twice turned, harder than nails, and about 9" in diameter. In the picture I have sanded it with 150 grit only. I used a 3" disk in my drill and this is after about 5 minutes. In this picture the rim has not been sanded at all. It is the first time ever I started sanded with anything other than 60 or 80 grit on the inside of a bowl. I could start with 150 grit because there was virtually no tear out, even in the "problem" areas. FWIW, I have since finished sanded the bowl inside and I started with 320 grit on the rim. This is not meant to be a recommendation to buy his tools. I'm sure the techniques I learned from him contributed as well. It's not unusual for me to spend an hour or more sanding a bowl this size. I might have had 15 minutes on this one. Steve
  12. Just finished up 12 more ornaments, I think that will do it for this year. That will give me about 45 altogether. Some will go in gift shops but many will be gifted. Anyway, I had a piece of spalted beech, heavily spalted but still solid enough to hollow, kind of unusual. Did one with walnut accents and one with maple. I like the walnut one for the contrast but then, I like the maple one too. Steve
  13. More ornaments

    A few ornaments from the latest run. There were 17 in this batch. Actually have started another 10 or so, that will probably be the last of them for this year. Steve

  15. A Project in Maple..

    Starting up.... Ripped from a wider plank of 5/4" Maple...bandsaw ripped to a 1-3/4" width....needed jointed.. Wasn't quite right...wanted to tip a bit.... Used a no.14 jack plane...this bigger plane, a Ohio Tool Co. No. 0-7 worked decently on a few longer rails Charles Neil had stained the panel...needed to remove the coloured parts... No. 4 smooth plane seemed to work....soon had a pile of parts.. Set most of this aside. This morning, at a yard sale, found a couple pipe clamps for a ten-spot.. About 5' long or so....came in handy, since I "only" have 5 in the shop.... Jointed a couple edges. This one might be for the back of the chest....older pipe clamps needed a pair of visegrips to keep them from sliding away... More jointer work... This time around, I used a Stanley No.7c. Somehow got things into the clamps.. And set this thing aside til tomorrow.....Figure out the foot profile, and used the bandsaw a bit... Then set the length of the rails and a center rail.. Bottom rails will be a tad wider that the top. I'll cut the panels into two raised panels. We'll see IF the back panel gets divided... Picked up some new chisels yesterday.. Local Aldi's store had these on sale...$6.99 + tax..... Waiting on the panels to cure out....Still working out what the ends will look like. Stay tuned...
  16. Chest of Drawers: PIP

    Well, last drawer is DONE! Soooo, how about a few pictures as a PIP? Fancy-schmansy top? Wondering WHAT the Amber Shellac will do to this view? Thinking the "build" part is done....now on to the finishing part... Just a fun, simple little project...better than IKEA ones, though?
  17. Another platter

    I've been wanting to add some color to some of my turnings and posted a little about that earlier. At the time I was working on another decorative platter and have just put the sealer coat on it. Probably should've waited and taken better pictures but I wanted to share and got impatient. The platter is soft maple, turned to about 1/8" thick and about 12" diameter. My original thought for the center motif was to use water color paint. After several practice pieces I just wasn't getting the "pop" I was after and decided to use aniline dye. It is definitely a more robust color. The sky, the tree, the animals, and the bottom are pyrography. The underside I was excited about doing this piece there are several things I really like about it. Even so, I'm just not sure it "works". Steve
  18. Maple Chest and Dovetails

    From the album 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    I cut these dovetails with my PC 7519 Router and an old Model 1601 Jig that dad bought in the 80's to make beehives with. He gave me the jig and I've had it ever since.
  19. Curly Maple Chest with Antiqued Escutcheon

    From the album 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    I absolutely loved making these chests, I made a few of them then stopped, I was combing through my archives and found images of this chest, we still have this chest in our home today.
  20. Another decorative platter

    Just finished another decorative platter. This one is 12" diameter and 1/8" thick. It is basically the same pattern as before but drawn a little differently and it shows a spline much better. This really is the effect I've been trying to get and I'm very happy with this one. The rose was drawn in Inscape and engraved with my little laser. The shading on the rose was done by hand and I've got a lot to learn about all that. Thanks for looking!! Steve
