  1. I made this firetruck for my grandson 12 years ago. I went to the internet to get ideas. I used exotic woods where I could. The ladder (curly maple) extends and swivels. The hose comes off the reel and cranks back up. I painted in all the gauges. I didn't have a lathe at that time and made the wheels and rims with the drill press. The lug bolts are tacks I found. He still loves it and is displayed in his room
  2. Been dealing with some family issues and haven't been in the shop very much. I did finish a couple pieces yesterday and today. Both are maple and both are right at 12" diameter. I think these two pieces really illustrate just how versatile is maple. First is a shallow bowl or deep platter, would probably work either way. Next is a platter, my attempt at a "traditional Irish platter" from the Glenn Lucas DVD and this is also one of the things a person will turn during his class. This is wormy, spalted, maple. Actually, in the interest of full disclosure and truth in advertising, this one is wormy, spalted, maple and superglue, a ton of it. Thanks for looking. Steve
  3. The only problem with me is I can see a few more days grinding on the next thing I start after I said its finished... I changed the way I attached the things to the board! More easier than the epoxy thingy. All my carving stuff is for head on looking. I'll get around to the sides and back if there are enough years left. Baltic Birch for the backer board. I used 100% tung oil to bring out the color and maybe a little extra enhancement also. This wood is exotic as I ever go and it is actually local. The bottom picture is with a flash. The finish is lacquer. Another thing I generally do after the lacquer has dried a couple days is use 0000 steel wool and Johnson't paste wax on all the high spots to give it that old look that has been well kept and in good condition.
  4. Maple and walnut. 24" tall 15" wide and 7" deep. All joints are M&T. Sanded to 180, 3 coats of matte poly, each roughed with a white mesh pad and final finish rubbed out with Liberon #0000 SW and paste wax. Drawers are lined with the same purple felt as the wings. Wrapped cereal box card board and dropped it in and glued them. Top drawer is fitted with ring holders. A piece of 3/8 thick dense foam with knife silts. The felt was laid over the top and slid into the slits with a steel ruler. The dot is a 3/8 rare earth magnet that catches the metal piece robbed from a push-to-open magnetic catch. The wings for studs and pins are felt covered M&T frames. Four per side. They swivel on 1/8" by 1/2" brass pins. Wife and I had to align all 8 to holes in the top at the same time and, then fit the top on the tenons cut in the sides and the dado for the back. Took us well over an hour. The top is screwed on and the screws counter bores are covered with walnut pegs from Rockler. Not shown are six 1" long brass pegs across the inside top, behind the wings, for necklaces. This was one major PITA for me. But, I learned a number of new techniques, learned some new combinations of cuss words, built a few jigs and best of all, bought a couple new planes needed to complete it. I'm sure the next three will be easier.(Fingers crossed!!!!)

    Hail Mary

    Here is what I have been working on for so long. Started out with rough cut hard maple that had been stored for a few years. It wasn't the best wood but I was able to resaw it and get enough to make this plaque. It measures 24 inches wide and 32 inches high. Wood was planed down to three sixteenths. Didn't keep track of the hours. It was a challenge but, worth it. Made it for my grandson. He is putting it in his classroom
  6. next will be my kind of carving also my favorite kind of woodworking. This is parts of three different patterns to come up with this size thingy.... Just finished scroll sawing the outside of this pattern. Its 1 1/2" maple and it sure does strain the saw. I think I will be inserting a few names somewhere in or on it.
  7. Doing a little art/craft show this weekend. That will make three for me this year, definitely have to cut back next year!! Anyway, trying to get a few pieces done to display. This maple bowl is one of them. This bowl was turned to finish green and has a nice little warp to it. Don't know why but people seem to like that. It is 17.5" diameter at it's widest point. Both of these bowls still need buffed. The bottom A little natural edge white oak bowl, I think it's interesting how spalted is the sap wood but the heart wood is solid as a rock. The bark was toast on this one before it was turned at all. This bowl is actually one from the class with Glenn Lucas last week. The lesson was on turning natural edge but also centering and balancing the bowl with the grain and getting clean cuts. About 15 minutes sanding on this one, which is cray, cray, for me. The bottom. Have shied away from turning oak, just never thought I would like it, this particular piece of wood was great to work with, cut like butter with little tear out. Steve

    Three bowls

    finished the last of these today. will be given away next saturday.
  9. I really like turning maple, many times with the intention of embellishing it as the grain can lend itself to that. Now and then however you stumble into a piece that would be a crime to embellishment at all. I feel I hit the jackpot on this particular piece of wood, at least as far as it having beautiful grain. Didn't put my normal zentangle pattern on the bottom of this one, the grain was just too spectacular. Hated to even sign it but found the "plainest" spot I could. Steve
  10. the kitchen has wormy maple cabinets, and most of the rest of the house features wormy maple baseboards and window trim. so as i'm getting my office renovation done, it's time to get baseboards for it. about 50 linear feet of 1x6, ripped to 4" exactly, small round over on top. nothing fancy, but that's what we've done elsewhere in the house. the last time i was down in Albuquerque, at the lumber store (nothing here in Santa Fe), the first store i stopped at, that i had bought much lumber from before, was boarded up. hmmm...on to the back up place. at the back up place, i inquire about wormy maple, and i'm told that they don't carry it. bummer. so i got the other plywood i needed for another project and headed home. so today, i swing by, expecting to just buy some plain maple, it'll have to do. but then i spy in their lumber rack a bin of wormy maple. only has a few pieces that have the figure i'm looking for, so i get a clerk and ask if they have any more? uh, yeah, come this way. an entire pile of 12 foot long pieces of various widths! yay!! so i pick thru it, end up with about 60 BF at $3.12/BF (up from the prior $2.40 or so, but still affordable). way more than i need for the baseboards, but some pieces were just too pretty to pass up. i don't know what they will become, but it will be pretty. so my next project is to rip things down to 4", plane one side smooth, round over one edge, and apply some poly, then cut to size and install. woot. this is going to look great. they had a really nice chunk of 8/4 walnut.....not today, i've spent enough money. as i was paying, the clerk told me another customer had come in a few days ago, paying cash (which is fine with them), had picked out a pile of walnut (about 8-10/BF) for a coffee table for a client, they rang it all up and announced the total of $1900 or so. he asked "how much?!" $1900. uh oh. he had quoted the client $1700 for the project, not factoring in the price of walnut over other woods. he wasn't happy. time to call the client. more money or no table. it's ok to sell the project before you build it, but make sure you leave some margin for beer when you are done.
  11. Turned these for the lady and her daughter who own the local honey farm that sells my mason jar honey dippers. They have been good customers and a pleasure to deal with. The top finial on these is supposed to be a bee hive and the drop is supposed to look like a honey dipper. Not exactly sure if I'm all that happy with the shape. Love the idea and concept and I think they will too. Maple and walnut, two of my favorite woods to pair. Steve
  12. Yes, another cutting board thread... sorry. This is an all Maple board 12" x 15" x 1 1/4". The top 1/2" is bookmatched with some nice ribbon in a few spots, mostly toward the left side. The reason I'm posting yet another cutting board is that I've never done one like this and that's typically what I post. I don't see any point in showing y'all cutting boards just like the last 10 or 20 I've made so you get to see the new ones and then I won't bother y'all again. Well, unless it's sort of the same with a new and interesting twist. I cut the board, drew the design in CorelDraw X8, and took the CorelDraw artwork to the laser shop I do work for and they cut it for me while I had a cup of coffee and waited the 30 minutes it took to burn the design. This was cut on a 60 watt Epilog and done in one pass. I lightly sanded the whole board with 400 grit when I got back to the shop so the tree and other burn areas would take on a bit more character. Then the standard 2 coats of mineral oil the first day followed by our Beeswax and mineral oil mix the next day. On the bottom are silicone rubber feet attached with stainless steel screws. Anyway, here's the board. David
  13. Something a bit different....as a way to use up a pile of scraps? One such pile. Have already sliced a couple of these scraps. I don't think the old 1/2" bandsaw blade will be of much use... Been a bit too beat up, lately.....I do have a 1/4" blade in the saw, right now.. Not really a new one, but it is at least...sharp. Maple tends to turn a bit brown. Cuts were a tad wavy. Motor at first didn't want to work this hard....and tried to shut down....until I pointed out to it, that the motor it replaced, was STILL in the shop...and YOU CAN BE REPLACED......motor started right up....imagine that Thought I could just jack plane these smooth....plane was a bit too big, for this job... The Stanley No. 3c that I had just rehabbed, happened to be sitting out, where I could grab it...seemed to do a decent enough job.. I even used it to joint a few edges... Got one looking decent enough as for width...needed trimmed on the ends for square, though.. Works for me. Got a few all the same width, mainly by bandsawing to width. was able to gang a bunch up.. Used the #3c again. to make them all the same width. Had two pieces, came from the same board.. Figured I could book-match these two into a panel for a lid....they needed a bit of work, one end being wider than the other end...bandsaw to correct that, plane to do the edges straight...try to make the grain as close as i could.. May need to add a bit, to get to the width I need. Set the thin stuff aside, for now.. These will be sawn down into 1" to1-1/2" wide strips....to make the frames to house those thin panels..had to set up a jig on the saw... Set for 1" width, for now....may go with the 1-1/2" instead....more to work with. Made a big mess today... May be about time to bring the trashcan back down to the shop? May need to do some glue-ups, and make some frames. Stay tuned...will see IF I can get this done, before next Tuesday morning...
  14. Hope I'm not wearing this out. Couldn't find an off the shelf stand to display the maple rocks bowl. They were either too light weight or hid too much of the bottom. I had an idea in mind but just wasn't happy with what I was doing. Spied a piece of gnarly cherry in my wood pile and started grinding on it. Here is the result. This is the piece of cherry, it's hard to tell from the picture but the bowl will sit in the little depression and it really looks pretty nice. I show it to my wife, she said she liked but it was a shame no one would see the underside because it was also very pretty. On a lark, I flipped the piece over and with just a little surgery the bowl sits very nicely there as well. Not especially happy with how the pictures show the bowl and stand but I hope you get the idea. From the underside of the bowl. For what it's worth. Wife told me if I have any more of those pieces I might to just make some of these to stand on their own. Steve
  15. Just finished this morning. I will say that I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. The rim is always a challenge for me as I'm never quite sure what to do with it. I had originally planned a herringbone pattern but nothing I drew looked right to me. It's about 12" diameter and not quite 5" deep. I'm sure I've posted this already but the design on the bottom is called "phicops in a circle" It's a zentangle pattern and the original author is Brad Harms-CZT Steve
  16. Our club meets this Sunday and I am doing the demo. Have decided on a fairly simple project from a video by Steve Jones . A seed starter pot maker. Many club members don't do demos and don't realize what goes into preparing for one. The demo I'm doing is "skew heavy". Steve Jones is a production turner from England the best I've ever seen with a skew. Even though I'm fairly adept with a skew I can't hold a candle to Steve. Even so, I want to do the demo using as many of his techniques as possible. With that in mind I have turned several pieces to get it down. This is maybe half of the ones I've done for practice. Add to that, transporting tools, materials, making notes, rehearsing, etc. etc. and doing a demo is a significant commitment in time and effort. On the other hand, I truly believe, the person doing the demo learns much more than anyone who watches it and the benefits far out weigh the inconveniences. Steve
  17. In the weekly thread for the woodworking agenda, I mentioned that i was working on bottle stoppers. Here's the one I am working on now, it had a cut in it so I am going to cut it off there, then finish shaping it. I also drilled the opposite end to make a second stopper, since this piece is so long. I see a few minor cracks, so i will fill those soon.
  18. I did a smaller version of this a while back, don't remember if I posted pictures or not. Anyway, this bowl is just over 12" diameter. LOTS of time invested and to be invested in this one. I really enjoy it though, the glass of wine and the view from the patio don't hurt either. This is done in layers at different heat settings. The first layer is done all around and most of the second as well. It will probably get at least two more layers at increased temperature before I do the rim pattern and finish the bottom. Steve
  19. Our woodturning club had an exchange challenge today. The idea is that members bring something they have turned, and exchange it with another member for something they have turned. I made a paper clip bowl out of maple and walnut. In the bottom are three rare earth magnets to keep the paper clips in the bowl as it gets slid around on the desk top. This turned out to be one of my learning experiences, aka mistakes, as I figured out halfway into the turning that I couldn't make a small bowl with a traditional curved bottom with a large chuck. Thus, the flared out bottom. Anyway, here's my project. Thanks for looking.
  20. Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve
