  1. Begins with the sides... Rather, a Back and 2 sides...trying to get the grain to wrap around... Drawer fronts needed a blank or 2 to chose from.. The rest of these 2 will be for the front of the top tray...have some 1/4" stuff for the drawer sides and backs.. That pile underneath will be parts for the lid.. Maybe a raised panel? With a collar? Should be enough "parts"? Skinny stick for the front of the upper drawer runner? Still working out a panel for the bottom of the box...we'll see... Stay tuned..
  2. I made a box for a friends birthday. First time I mixed wood with acrylic. It was questionable with me but my wife loved it and said our friend would also. My son is visiting from Texas. I got some shop time with him and got him on the lathe for the first time. He wanted to make a pen so I helped him with that.
  3. Our Patriot Turners- @nevinc posted images of his walnut bowls and a question about warping. His beautiful walnut bowls changed shape after they set for a bit. Check out his post and see if you can provide more information or suggestions- @Gerald had a craft show this past weekend but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate. This is one of his "Friendship Bowls" he had for sale- Head on over to his post to see more of the bowls along with other items he had for sale- "What's On You Lathe" continues to highlight our turners' work! Some of what was posted- You can catchup here- We had some interesting comments on last week's "Wednesday's" about chuck removal. I appreciate the input- What’s Coming Up- 2023 Mid Atlantic Woodturners Association Symposium. Click on the image for registration For The Newbies- Turners are often asked to duplicate another piece. This video from Sam Angelo demonstrates one technique. What I found particularly interesting was the story stick he made with the pencil point notches- Expand Your Horizons- Watch Mike Waldt turn a Spalted Beech Lidded Box This video, from Turn A Wood Bowl, gives a a little insight to the question asked by @nevinc concerning warping- It is less expensive to buy unhandled lathe tools and then turn your own custom handle. Alan Stratton explores the possibilities- New Turning Items- Ron Brown has a new parting tool kit. Check it out here- https://www.longworthchuck.com/index.php?route=product/product&search=PARTING TOOL K&product_id=475 Everything Else- Tim Yoder got a new "toy"- Safe turning
  4. With the club's long time charity deciding they don't want wooden toys any more, we needed to find a new place. One current place is the local children's hospital taking 30 small boxes a month for the patients to decorate while there and take home. So I started making some. The first batch (6 of them) was mitered corners with a sliding lid, used keys on the corners. Second batch (5) finger-jointed and solid top rabbeted. Looking for something a little more efficient in production. Third was a prototype with an inset lid held with a brass rod as pivot hinge. Ok, but finicky. Forth was today. Mitered corners and inset plywood top and bottom panel. Biscuits to reinforce the miter joints. I did another groove on the inside near the top. Then once the box was assembled and glue dried, did another pass with the 1/4" bit on the router table. This made a double rabbet to hold the lid in place. Saves having to do an inner layer insert. I'll do a run of these when I get some more lumber and plywood. I talked to a local furniture shop last week and they told me the set out their scraps on Monday afternoon for the trash man. I was there and picked some of their cutoffs from the scrap bin;. Most of it was 1/2" poplar, probably drawer sides. A bit of maple and some cherry. In another adventure, I got a bunch of leftovers from red oak flooring (one time find) . Well, started today to rip off the tongue and groove edges so I could do glue-up. Then I thought, hey, the ends are going to be hidden by miter joints, just use them to align the glue up and rip off only the top and bottom edges. Lesson learned. It appears that the groove side is slightly wider on the top than on the bottom. I'm thinking that's so the top joint is tight and the bottom does not matter so much. I got a lot of "cup" in the top that I needed to get out with cauls and now I looks like there's a gap on the bottom of that joint. Well, nice try. Wait for the glue to dry and rip them apart. On the other ones, I will try just trimming off a bit on the groove side to align it up.

  7. For those new to woodturning there is a dance you have to learn to be a good woodturner. Feet positioning and movement are some of the keys to this dance. Well needless to say my dance has been impaired as of late but is getting nearer to normal.My last day of PT is Friday and for the last 10 days have been working on boxes for my two therapists. The walnut came from the Methodist church about18 years ago. Finish on the walnut is Watco as I do not know of a easier and better finish for it. Tops have clear gloss Watco Lacquer. these are about 5 inches wide.

    New box

    We have a contest at our club meeting this month. It has to be a lidded box and has to fit into an 8” cube. I made this but decided not to enter it. I made something different that I like better. I finished the inside with black flock.
  9. This is a follow up from my new box post. People were wanting to see the second box finished. I figured I would start a new thread. The box bottom is pecan. The top and finial are quarter sawn sycamore. It has four coats of Arm R Seal semi gloss then buffed with carnauba wax.

  11. Hi, John if you think this needs to be relocated, please do so. The wife of my best friend, sent me (well actually me Missus) a picture of a spice rack that rolls into the space between the fridge and wall. Was wondering if I could make one for her. I told her I thought it would be too top heavy, and would get very dusty there. Then I was wondering (and I’m gonna TRY to describe my idea), If I built a box, say 3 feet by 3 feet by 6 inches, and the 6 inches was to fit in the space between the fridge and wall, could I use a pair of drawer slides for it to slide out from the fridge and then back in? The slides would be mounted on the wall side of the box, top and bottom. I was wondering if it might sway too much, when fully pulled out. I was gonna put a back on the box, and doors on the front to keep the dust out. Pull it out from the space, open the doors, grab your spices, close everything up and slide it back in. Any thoughts on better hardware, or design, I’m more than happy to consider/use
  12. Still had a stash of resaws to use up...or burn....prefer to use up, so.. And... Figure I could just glue these up into book-matched panels...for a Frame & Panel box/chest? Clamps and cauls.... Bench vise as a 3rd hand, and as a pair of cauls.. More clamps and cauls..might use this one for and end panel..means I need one for the other end Not too sure about that knot, yet.. let these sit a day...then remove the clamps..and nothing flies apart... The 2 longer panels, will have to trim these down to match each other...as for the other 2.. Need to trim all of these down.. To get rid of that knot, for one thing.. Set the rip fence to ~5" width...ran the best of each panel through...set aside the 3" cut-offs for later... Lengths...ends are 6" long, and the 2 sides are ~9" long.. Then try to plane the glue joints until they disappear.. Almost gone? Also needed to get them all FLAT.. A little more off of the right edge? repeat 3 more times.. Plane is a Stanley No.3, Type 11....as it was still out on the bench... Upstairs, there are 2 planks...one has a live edge...7/8" x 6 x 65-1/2" The other is a bit plain..and a foot shorter I figure I can cut the best section out...for a lid....maybe do a glue-up? Rest of the plank will get ripped down into parts for the frames. Some of which might get a bit "showy"? Spalted Maple? set the fence for 1-1/2" width..run a few strips to start up with.. Might be enough..we'll see... Next time? More rips...a LOT of cross cuts (16 parts !) and more rips...then see about grooves, tenons... Stay tuned..
  13. Making a surprise box for my wife. This one is a pretty good size one. I can’t remember the wood type. It is going to be a whiskey barrel. I used silver/grey miliput for the steel bands. I will use a thin plywood for the top with a cork for the handle.

    Mesquite box to hold my Daughter-in-law's Glock. Solid Mesquite, turquoise and epoxy to fill the voids. Mesquite harvested and milled by yours truly.
  15. Sooo, bought some Red Oak, and needed a project idea... Three planks, at $22.98 each ( OUCH!) 1/2" x 5-1/2" x 48"... Grain details, of the top board...other 2 are a little more plain....so, watch a series of videos by Paul Sellers' Masterclass. Downloaded the plan for a Keepsake Box with curved sides So, I'll give him the credit for the design. I'll have a few small details that will be a bit different. Cutting list as provided.. Where he used 9/16" thick stock...I'll have to use 1/2" thick stuff.....I'll have to see about that 5/8" thick stock... So, here we go.."Start up" phase....details? Curved corner details....looks like fun? Applied feet (to make)Lid gets sawn free of the box, note the cut line. Bottom and the panel for the lid are to look like they are floating, but.. They sit in a narrow groove..3/16" at that...we'll see how that works in 1/2" thick stock....he uses a plough plane even on the end grain. He also cuts a stopped dado for that divider to sit in. There is a carved, curved finger grip for me to gouge out(up) Had a pair of Hinges I thought about using.... Maybe....would be surface mounted, and inlaid flush with the surface....we'll see.. Need to haul the Plans and the Planks to the shop. The Masterclaases are Free, just log onto Paul's site....He also has a pay per view Masterclass....but, since I am a bit on the Frugal side (NOT cheap) I went with the Free site. Might be worth checking out...? Boss has errands to run, whenever the "Fliver" gets warmed up (16 sunny degrees outside, about 50 degrees too cold for me) Stay tuned....this might involve a small bit of cussing.. (ya think?)
  16. Nearing the middle of January already. Rumor has it there's a snow storm brewing for the north east late this weekend. Maybe I'll get to use the snow blower for the second time this "winter". Our Patriot Turners- Our turners have taken a vacation this week, but @Ron Altier's post about adding glitter to an ornament had lots of responses and advice.

  17. Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a great and Blessed Thanksgiving. Here are some pictures of todays beginning of constructing a toy box for my grandson for Christmas. Not the best pics. my question(s) are for the floor of it I am going to run Cedar from front to back. What would be the best way to re-enforce it to withstand the weight of the toys? Same thing for the lid because I am sure he will want to sit on it. Thank you!
  18. Sometime ago, I was working at the bench, with this opened case on the bench....just as I noticed it was walking towards the edge of the bench.....too late. In the wreck damage....it had torn the lid off the case...taking a bit of wood with it....just enough that I couldn't just re-attach it..stripped out the screwholes, to boot. The only thing that could hold the lid shut was the latch out front.....after a few projects of messing around with that loose lid....time had come to settle matters..... Looked around in the spares box....found a short length of "Piano" hinge....but no screws....kept looking, found a small bag of screws that MIGHT work. Already had the pilot hole drill set up...just had to find the right screwdriver..... Tried to center this up, with the barrel of the hinge right over the "break-out" area. Couple of clamps to hold the lid in place on the box...could hear something rattling around inside. 6 small Phillips head screws...just long enough that the pointy end does not poke through the 1/2" thick sides. Now, about that rattle noise? Yes, these did come with a screwdriver. And it was moving around inside the box. Plane is a Stanley No. 45, Type 5...... You can also see where it hit the concrete floor at....top right corner.. Should be all set for the next job...
  19. Inspired by last weeks Wisdom for Woodturners post I made a hinged box. I watched Mike Waldt's video and remembered I had harvested some of those hinges from trinkets purchased at the Restore with plans to use them someday. The hinge sets are cheap when purchased this way since the price for one of the trinkets is usually around $0.50 at the Restore. I collected them together and hadn't realized how many I had acquired until they were all in one place. The nick in the lid makes room for the hasp. I filed the bottom of the hasp flat and didn't have to cut out the bottom piece.
  20. From the album: Gene's Stuff

    Sagebrush rounds, or oysters were glued to 1/2" plywood and leveled with a router jig. Voids between the rounds were filled with turquoise and epoxy.
  21. Here is a jewelry box made with segments then cut on the Ringmaster lathe.
