  1. Lew I looked at the steady rest video and I liked the idea. I also designed mine for my mini lathe and can also insert my steady rest without removing my tailstock. I have two sizes of rollers on reversible arms. The white rollers are from shower stall windows and the black are for printers and have bearings. Both work well.
  2. I was digging through the wood storage looking for something to do. I found a "kit" of a hall table that I got at an auction many years ago. The maple top is rounded on the front edge and straight on the back, sort of "D" shaped. Also is a skirt that is similarly shaped, but only runs across the front. I opened the stretch-wrapped package of legs (cherry) to what I expected to be 4 legs and there are only 3. So the questions are: 1) Should I make another leg or do something like this, one on each end and one in the center? (there is no bottom shelf in the kit) 2)
  3. Lew wrote about redesigning his lathe vac system. I was already tossing it around in my mind and wrote about a header, etc. Then it hit me, why go thru all that. I used thick cardboard and sheets of plastic. The thicker plastic came from the Dollar 3 for a dollar and are about 11" by 14". It cuts easily and can be taped to make larger sheets. I made alterations as I went. I installed my shop vac 2 and half inch hose in the lower left and formed the bendable plastic to fit. This prototype has worked really good so far. I also have in mind a divider made of the same plastic that can be moved to
  4. Another week in the books. We've had a beautiful stretch of nice weather here in South Central PA. Unfortunately it has been so dry that the forest service is predicting very muted colors on the trees as the the leaves change. Our Patriot Turners- @Masonsailor reminded us that Christmas isn't that far away! He has started in on his gifts already He received lots of positive comments on this ice cream scoop- Of course, @Ron Altier is always prepared for Christmas! He gave us a look at a couple of new ornaments he turned. As al

  6. I have been busy designing and building a side chair to go with our new kitchen table. The plan was to build one prototype out of poplar, and a 2nd chair out of poplar. Both of these chairs will be either painted black or sprayed with black lacquer. Then, the plan is to build four chairs from cherry and maple. The prototype chair was completed this week. The 2nd poplar chair is moving along and the material for the cherry chairs has been purchased, acclimated to my shop environment, cut, jointed, and planned to rough dimensions. The seat blanks for the cherry chairs have a few addit
  7. Have you ever completed a project and admired it, only to find a flaw that ONLY you can ever know about? If so, did you forget it or fix it?
  8. Hi Guys, anyone really like fooling around on Sketch Up? I'd love to get some help coming up with a design for a scrap wood bin that would fit under my stairs but will have the most variety of cubbies and sizes of bins. Any takers?
  9. Most of you know that I dabble with Christmas tree ornaments and that sometimes my mind gets off the main road. I had a design in my mind and kept drawing and improving the design. It is hard to tell in the pictures that it has four extensions of the same design. I didn't know how it would turn out, so I made it of pine. I wish now I had used a quality hardwood.

  11. Another busy week here for the Patriot turners! @Ron Altier asked a question concerning the angle on the skew chisel- curved or straight? Seems most of your turners prefer the straight cutting edge. Why not head over to Ron's post and provide him with your preference- @oldwoodie Asked for our input on assembling pen kits. He is concerned about installing the pen refill in an older pen kit- He was also unsure about whether pressed in parts need to be glued in place- I know some of you have turned pens and you may be able to

  13. For those who followed my series, I totally forgot to post pictures of my stairs after it was completely done, sorry guys and gals. A close up of how flawlessly the treads and risers fit into the routed stringers, (see part 5 for pics of the stringers and how it's put together). Yes, there is a kink in the wall rail, due to a run change between the upper 7 treads and the lower 4 treads, (see part 6 as to why). The top of the balusters fit into a hole drilled in the underside of the rail, the bottoms sit in a hole drilled into the tread, epoxy is put into the holes on the treads to keep them fr

  16. First I must tell you that my shop is half of a garage and that all tools, benches have to be portable. I can't do large projects and really don't care to, so all is well with what I have. Over the years my space has changed to accommodate new things and to make the most used items handy. First, there are never enough sharp pencils and they always hide somewhere. Next was the tools I use to do small jobs and repairs. Then there are the measuring rules and tapes I know I usually can't find. I try to keep most things within reach and not have to go on a search mission. As I looked over my
