  1. So I've been doing some experimenting this morning with grip lines in pen barrels. I put them in before I sanded the barrels how ever learning things the hard way I wound up sanding them mostly all the way back down and had to put them back into the wood. I'm wondering if there is a much easier way of doing this and I'm also wondering if there is a simpler way of getting the lines equal. I like the look fortunately these were just test pieces so they wont even get put together into a pen. Any suggestions on this? Here is video of exactly what I did.
  2. Thought it might be best to start off with what my current setup is or at least parts of it. My Dust collector is a Grizzly 1029 2 hp operating on 220v. It had a 5 micron bag top and bottom when purchased and was upgraded to a canister filter from Penn State. My collector is located in the attic of my shop in a insulated enclosure and a 12x24 filtered return to the shop. Power is controlled with a Long RAnger remote. Ducting I used is 4 inch thinwall PVC. We will get into ducting and turning corners later. I have limited amounts of Flex hose in 4 and 6 inch. My bblast gates are a

    @Woodbutcherbynight This will answer most of your questions on this subject and maybe we coul all try this . It is not really that hard once you start just get snug fits and approach tenon size carefully. I have had the blank to turn this peppermill for almost a year and the test was done in walnut, the finial piece is a blank of colorply or some other brand of the same . It is red and blue but the Tru Oil made the blue look black. Both pieces came out fine and I just happen to have a good bit of walnut in the shop, but I would suggest a test piece before you commit to expensive wood

  5. Getting started I like to use a piece of straight grained wood wide enough that it can be cut in two square pieces and long enough to cut it in half and for the length of the vase. It takes four same size pieces to glue up a blank. Pick up the pieces and mark the ends. This is how the pieces will be oriented for the final turn. For the first turn twist the pieces so the inside corners face to the outside corners and glue them together. It takes just a small amount of glue on the very ends. Remember these pieces will have to be pried apart a
  6. Got the angel ornaments done. There is 30 of them. Started with an inch and a half square blank, turned it round and measured two inches for the body and three quarters inch for the head. Drilled a 5/8" hole in the bottom 3/4" deep and hollowed it out some to take some weight off. Turned the body. Shaped the head and cut the ornament free. Turned it around and put it in the chuck to sand the top of the head. For the wings I put another same
  7. I am currently helping build props for a stage company. They like to build everything from 3 basic materials: 2x lumber, 1/4" lauan, and 3/4" OSB. Everything is generally screwed together so they can take it apart and reuse what they can. General rules: Safe for actors As long as it looks good from 50 feet, it's great. My current task is to make some spoked 36" wheels for an Egyptian chariot that will hold one of the actors. Last week, I laid up 3 layers of OSB and cut the outside circle. The plan is to cut out 6 triangular pieces to make the spokes and hub.
  8. As I peruse my endless supply of the old Workbench Magazine, I come across some wonderfully fun articles, many that still pertain to our techniques in woodworking today. And when I do I like to share them here. So here goes, check out this very cool, old article from a Workbench Magazine 1965 Sept-Oct issue. How to use a wood lathe. Have fun! Do the speeds for turning still apply?
