  1. 8' 6x6 beam bolted to loft ceiling joists with integrated lumber rack Crane foot bolted to 6x6 beam extends 4' and pivots on mount. Hoist with wired remote at end of crane. #150 green pecan log gently lowered onto sawbuck .40
  2. It works. But this guy has taken the idea of controlled hollowing to another level and he's not using any electronics He uses a pattern that he makes from the turning and follows that with this cool set up
  3. I visited the widow of a long time friend that passed away recently. We sorted thru some of the stationary power tools and their accessories for sale. Next will be portable power tools, then the hardware store and lumber yard, as she put it. One of the things he did was turning little decorative "bird houses" that were ornament sized. He had a few pieces of exotic wood roughly 2x2x10 and a piece of ebony that he never got to. What would be a good way to find a turner who might be interested? There were also a bunch of "half logs" probably destined for bowls.

    I called a local mill and asked about some free scraps. The guy was really nice. We ended up talking for an hour or more. He gave me a walnut log and one he called Osage orange. This is all I had room for. He said I could come back and get more when I need it.
  6. Just got everything set up and running. Took a seasoned log and practiced some basic shapes to get the feel of the tools, familiarize myself with the lathe, and see how it all works together. not a masterpiece but feel it’s a great start.
  7. As a wood turner, cutting up logs into bowl blanks, is just part of the fun. As I mentioned in my introduction, I was a logger for nearly a decade, so using a chainsaw is second nature at this point. Now obviously I don’t use the Stihl 066 or MS 660 for cutting bowl blanks, but my MS 210 always worked well. However, a noisy gas powered saw isn’t always appreciated in my neighborhood or inside the garage. So, I went searching for an electric solution. Now I have to say, I was very skeptical about battery powered saws, but after much research I pulled the trigger on a Stihl MSA 220 C. This thing as exceeded all of my expectations thus far. Plenty of power, descent run time, and well its a Stihl. Great quality and robustly built. It wasn’t cheap, but what good tool ever is. Obviously, I’ll still use my 210 when it makes sense, but having this battery powered option is a real game changer for me. Let me also say that I am not posting this to have a debate over which chainsaw brand is better. I mean we all know it’s Stihl, so there really is no debate. 😂🤣
  8. I've been wanting to try my hand at greenwood carving, particularly spoon carving. I decided that, to give myself every chance to succeed, I would need a bench dedicated to carving. I checked youtube, carving forums, etc and decided that a log mule/carving bench would fit the bill. It just so happened that my mother, last week, had asked me to remove some downed trees from her yard. Enter this weekend's project. First, stripping the bark from an oak log....... Then, it's time to cut the legs to size......... And then, the shaping begins. Doing this with hand tools only is quite a challenge (a Poulan is a hand tool, right?) And thus, ends the first day of work on the mule/bench.
  9. Hey folks, I have couple very heavy timbers. The one I planed a little bit to expose the color is about 24" long and 12"x12". It weighs about 80 lbs, very heavy. The timber on the floor is twice as long and twice as heavy. Very dense. The timbers are about 50 years old. I have been told what the original owner says it is, but without any influence, I wondered if you guys can tell me what species this is. Thanks for any help.

    Mequite Log Bench

  11. Is there anything I can do to keep wood from cracking? I was making a bird house. I had to stop and got tied up for a while. I went back out 2 or 3 days later and it had a huge crack. The first picture is when I was working on it and the second picture is after three days of just sitting on the lathe.
  12. I knew I wasn't loco! So folks do take a log and turn it into a vase!
  13. My neighbor was cutting up a muscle tree which had fallen in the woods some time back and i noticed that it had a fair size chunk at the base and appeared to be spalted. I thought maybe someone would be interested in trying to turn this (I have no lathe)... so here are the pictures...if you're interested i can probably meet you somewhere in NE ohio to deliver it... too heavy to mail.
  14. From the album: Tropical Almond Slabs

    Picked up this small Tropical Almond log on Friday and started milling over the 4th weekend, going to make some nice tables at Key West Custom Woodwork and Sawmilling
  15. Seems we had a wee bit of a breeze around these parts last week On the other end of town Tree fell down onto a Honda I think you will need a metal detector, before you saw this log. Don't know who owned the accord, looks like they might be getting a different one? Do you think JB Weld will help this one?
  16. Ok turners, I got a log! Found it on the roadside in a stack of other logs from the same tree, it's about 12" diameter and 18" long, has the bark on as you can see, and it's wet! It weighs about 60 pounds or more, I think. What would yall do with it first, to prep if for turning? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
