  1. Friend asked me to make a Christmas gift for his wife, wants a Lazy Susan like mine but stained. Suggested just using a dark wood like walnut, he wants it to match the table, which is stained. Okay no problem. His table is oak so I pulled some from supply and glued two 7 inch pieces together after I made a tongue and groove joint. Now here is my issue. I cannot turn more than 9 1/2 inches on either lathe. BUT, as @steven newman likes to say, we have ways. Using my circle cutting jig for the bandsaw I made this 13 inches in diameter. Now to smooth it down I set up my Variable speed dril
  2. Well, June is over half way done and summer begins on Saturday! It was almost a "4 For" Mimi and me. When we were married it was the first day of summer (and the longest day of my life the year). This year the first day of summer falls on June 20. Had it been one day later we could have had Fathers Day, first day of summer, longest day of the year and our anniversary all at once! Please remember that our annual fundraiser/raffle is being held. We still have a ways to go to meet our goal. Check out the details at- Our Patriot Turners- I think the last 2 weeks mu
  3. My wife has asked for a Lazy Susan for our dining room table. As she rarely asks for such things I was happy to get one started. To put what she wants on it, candles and such required 12 inch diameter. My lathe capacity is only 10. BUT, I do have a drill press so I glued up a blank and used my circle cutting jig on the bandsaw to make the bottom piece. Once done I used a 1/4 threaded rod and bearing set on the bottom to secure to the drill press table. Then set the speed to 700 and smoothed up the edges and made it nice and round. Took maybe 5 minutes. The rest of the part
  4. Thunderstorm in progress here this evening. Not too much rain so far. Please remember that our annual fund drive/raffle is in progress. More about the awesome prizes and what we do with the proceeds is found here- Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB wins the prize this week for the most contributions to our forum! In response to last week's "Wednesday's...", Andrew reviewed is purchase of Savannah carbide tools along with a link to a source- He also provided additional information on the Wen lathe he purchased- Andrew also started
  5. This is a project that use a LOT more than just the CNC but I decided to put it here anyway. Please move it if necessary. Started yesterday with some cutoff pieces of Walnut, finished it today, shipping it to NY on Monday. Finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer. When your planer isn't big enough and the CNC is... Enjoy!

  6. I just joined the forum so I thought I would start with my latest turning project. This is a project to turn an existing liquor cabinet into something to bring it into line with our Art Deco theme for this house. It involves three separate turnings in a tulip style which will be mounted vertically on a 1 5/16” brass pole and progressively getting smaller in diameter, largest on the bottom. The “tulips” are all 15” high, and are 16”, 13” and 11” in diameter. I am making them from 8/4 African mahogany. The biggest challenge has been to arrange the grain pattern to end up looking like overlapping
  7. Ok, I'm going to stay a new thread to show my progress else it should just get lost in a thread that had nothing to do with it. So far I managed to get the base top drawer frames and top started. I tried three times with a strap clamp and it slipped off every time, the clamp method sucks too but at least I got layer on. Two more to go.
  8. Daughter #2 has requested a marble/granite lazy susan. About 12" to 18" in diameter My dilemma---- a remnant from a counter top is 3/4" to 1" thick and will be kinda heavy and chances are I'll not be able to cut it with what I have at hand. So I was thinking of a floor tile. Cut it with a diamond jigsaw blade. Has anyone cut a circle into stone with good results? What did you use and how much of a PIA was it? The stone top will be attached to the mechanism with construction adhesive and then to wood base with screws. Edge I can treat with the diamond disks that I have.
  9. I'm starting to work on a Lazy Susan for the holidays-----did I give myself enough time??? The diameter is 22" & about 1" thick made from pine--bot from HD(?) or Lowes The bearing plate is 12" diameter. What would be a safe size (either square or round) for the base plate? I'm thinking in the 18 to 19 inch range. Or is that overkill? What's going on top?? probably just dishes/bowls. I can't see my daughter putting pots/pans on it.
  10. Here is a great fixture for rotating a piece while you are finishing. Simply a ball-bearing lazy susan hardware on a scrap piece of plywood. Mine's well used. Prop your piece(s) up on one of the prior stand-offs and rotate as you stain or finish. Under side Top side

  12. Well my Christmas projects are finally coming to an end. We had three Green Egg tables picked up over the weekend and that cleared out a lot of room in the shop. I finished up the Oak Lazy Susan and it got picked up yesterday. I also finished and will deliver this afternoon the two Walnut Shadow Boxes. Sunday afternoon I cut out and glued the pieces for a Lego Table. Last night when I got home and got everything sanded and most of the table assembled. I have a trim piece that will go around the top and stick
