  1. Our weekend working on the boat almost ended in disaster. For years we have been using a small set of plastic steps to get on and off the boat. Getting on the the boat was never an issue but getting off we always called it the leap of faith. Now we are older and Ileene had a near fall onto the concrete dock. It’s about a 4’ drop. So all projects come to a halt and I am home building a proper boarding platform. Something I should have done a long time ago. I only have three days to complete this as we are due back on board Fri morning. I decided to build it out of poplar which was not my first
  2. A few weeks ago mama decided she wanted a cabinet to store her arts and crafts supplies that are taking up floor space in our upstairs hallway. She went shopping online and found a cabinet she liked for 230 bucks, and it was the typical particle board white surface type of stuff. So I told her I'd be happy to build it and the materials would be less as well. So she and I went to our lumber store and picked up some 4/4 poplar, poplar because she wants the exterior painted white, and I want the interior natural finished. We will be using General Finishes Milk Paint for the exterior.
  3. So this morning I've started working on the big poplar bowl. At this point I'm not even sure if Id be able to manage cutting a mortise into this bowl. Unfortunately I may have to go with the tenon.... Although I do not have a set of cole jaws that would fit this particular sized bowl I am at a point where I'm on a loss on figuring out what should be done. Only because if I take it off the wood worm screw and put the face plate back on it is far too big for it to fit inside the motor housing I'm going to try it with the origional face plate that came with the lathe but I don't think it will

  5. Laundry Detail to night, had to kill a little time for the dryer to get done.. cross cut and ripped a few pieces of 1/2" poplar... 2 longer ones for the sides... The other two are for the ends....wanted them all the same width..so.. meet Junior....Junior Jack plane, that is. Boards were a tad too short for the longer Jacks...been a while..had to back off the cut quite a bit, from the last time it was used. Chisel selection? We'll see which ones get into the case. Depends on HOW I lay them in there, and what holders I cobble up....1/4" plywood
  6. Can you believe it? Tomorrow is the first day of October! One of own, @Charles Nicholls, could use some prayers and good thoughts. Charles is in the hospital and hopefully recovering but if you could take a moment and send some positive energy his way, I'm sure it will be appreciated. A little more information is here- EDIT EDIT EDIT--- Just received word that Charles has been moved from the hospital to a rehab facility. Things are looking up! Our Patriot Turners- Last week @Masonsailor showed us his beginning Christmas present project. He has added even mor
  7. Okay so I picked up some poplar this morning I wanted to make two poplar bowls. I bought a 4 1/2 ' x 8" x 3/4" board of poplar this morning. I was able to get two bowl blanks out of it. I'm decisive on what to make out of the scrap. I've got the left over pieces that I haven't thrown out because I knew I could make something out of them either way any suggestions from you guys on what I should do with the scraps. I've got enough to either turn a mug or a goblet not sure on what I should create. I also got my shop area organized a lot better so its not an absolute mess so that's a good fe
  8. I'm really hoping this works. I think its Desert Ironwood (old un used knife scales) and scrapped poplar combo. This is just thrown together in a mess hoping it will make a nice set of pen barrels. I just hope it works.
  9. Ok..box #2 is started...double and triple checked the saw set up... Trying to cut both boards at the same time, and getting them both in the middle usual luck.. "Missed it by that much, Chief" needed a tad off of one end...then over to the vise.. That #3 was made about 1905, or so..still works. Jointed all the edges until they matched, then Then shoot the end grain until they matched...that is two boards sitting there...laid out all four parts.. And found bar code stickers on a few boards...33 planed those off. Set all but one side p
  10. Boy these Cornhole games sure are popular. Our neighbor's daughter is getting married this May and they asked me if I could build a couple Cornhole boards for them, they are going to have games at the wedding reception. I only first heard of this game because of @John Moody, John is the resident Cornhole builder in our community. So I know what little I do know by John's work, and I just scanned the internet really quick to get the regulation sizes of everything and I set to building their boards from wood I had left over from other projects. I have not had a full day in the shop in two y
  11. We finally got a break in the rain. Made a trip to the sawmill to pick up a load of poplar we have needed. At the same time left a couple of Cedar logs to get cut. Got it a call to go by and pick up the nice Elm. At least to 14’ logs. Looks like it has some beautiful grain. Now or we can move on with a couple of other jobs we were on hold with because of all the rain. Im looking forward to seeing the beautiful grain patterns in that Elm.
  12. Monday, I posted that I’m building a farmhouse table. Gene Howe requested that I keep y’all posted on the progress so here it is. The top is flat on both sides and I have made the skirt and stretchers. BTW, the stretchers are done but on in this picture. Everything is mortised and tenoned and I had to increase my mortising skills. The legs are 5” square and my mortifying machine only raises to 4 1/2” so I cut the mortises with a plunge router and chilled the ends. Speaking of legs, they were purchased and on leg was an 1/8” out of square So the mortise and tenon was “interesting”.
  13. We are having our annual woodturner's club picnic this Saturday. I didn't go to the last one because I was fairly new to turning, they want each turner that attends the picnic to bring a turning for the spouses' raffle, and I didn't have enough confidence in my skills to bring something. The wives, spouses, or others get a raffle ticket whose sole purpose is to determine the order in which they get to pick out a turning and take it home. No money exchanges hands, all just for fun. These are the items I made for this year's picnic, which, BTW, I got asked to organize. Not having attended l
  14. Here is my latest effort. This is the bowl that was in work when I posted the pictures of the curtain and dust trough on my lathe. Top and bottom are poplar, center is walnut. I wanted to try my hand at mixing species. I don't really like this one, the proportions look wrong to me. My son and DIL like it, so it's theirs now.
  15. Finally got back on my lathe. When my daughter saw this fruit bowl I had made for my wife, which I posted on back in October, she wanted something similar. This is what I came up with for her. It started out as four pieces of 8/4 poplar. I edge glued two pieces together, then edge glued the other two pieces together, then face glued those two chunks together to make a big blank. I wanted to try my hand at making a bowl that was pretty much at the maximum diameter allowed for my lathe. With that heavy of a blank, I was a little wary of it flying off the chuck. I screwed on a fa
  16. Ok, Vacay is over, time to make a bit of sawdust....maybe. Had a few Poplar boards sitting around, taking up space in the shop.. Not quite all the same sizes...little rough around the edges, too. Bandsaw to remove some of the excess stuff.. Will need a bit more done to these, to make something like this.. Maybe square the ends, thin board for a bottom panel....maybe some dovetails to connect things.... Yes, I do pins first. Just easier for me that way. I had to use the mitre box to square the ends, first. And a #4 plane to smooth the edges.
  17. This started out as a 8" x 8" x 2" piece of poplar. After that, the picture pretty much tell the story. It is intended for use as a fruit bowl, hence the green rim. That, by the way, didn't go as expected. I purchased a green paint pen from Hobby Lobby, intending to hold it against the rim with the lathe on its lowest speed, but the pen was the type that you have to keep depressing the nib on the end to pump the paint to the tip. That, of course, didn't work with the bowl turning, so I would up having to pump some paint to the tip, get it on the rim of the bowl, and actually "draw" it on
  18. Well, this has been quite the week for the ol Morris home! I had fully intended on finishing our Walnut Vanity, but we were informed an appraiser was going to come out this Tuesday to value our home for a VA refi. At first I had not thought of it, but it finally struck me, hey, if this guy is coming out to appraise, we should probably have our bathrooms fully functional. While the 1/4 bath downstairs with the Walnut Vanity is fully functional, the kids bathroom upstairs is not, it's still missing a vanity as well. I called the VA appraiser and asked him if the missing vanity would effect the v
  19. Folks, I have some nice poplar boards, and I am going to make another vanity with the boards, for another bathroom in our home. The entire vanity will be poplar, the outside will be painted a cream white or off white, and the inside will be varnished. The poplar I have has those wonderful dark green and dark streaks, I have heard that poplar colors will bleed through most paints, what can I do to prevent the bleed through, or is what I have heard and read a myth? Thanks!
