  1. I have a reasonably decent lathe that I bought most of ten years ago and am ashamed by how little it really gets used. I do like to get it out and tinker with it every now and again, usually around Christmas when I have some time off of work. I made some of these last year for the house and they were well received so decided to take another crack at some multi-species snowmen perhaps for a few gifts this year. Included here are Red Cedar, Ash, Mahogany, Hickory, Mulberry, and Walnut plus whatever the ink dyed toothpicks are made from. I used a mix of finishinG techniques. I claim only to be a rudimentary “woodhack” turner but the skills are improving and these are good practice and a bit of Holiday fun!
  2. Big B

    Alien

    From the album: Turnings

    Thought this one looked like something out of a star trek episode so named it the alien due to its organic shape specifically related to the finial. The hollow form is Cedar with turquoise inlay in the cracked and small voids. The headpiece or Finial is made of Bradford Pear and has turquoise inlay as well in a concentric pattern on each side which was all turned and hand carved. Size including the finial is around 14.5"x9.5". Hope you enjoy as much as I did making it.
  3. From the album: Shaker Furniture

    Two front legs turned and ready for the rung holes. I turned these legs with my Easy Wood tools, a rougher and a finisher and my Laguna Lathe.
  4. I may have to make some of the fixtures I see here
  5. I think it is a challenge to make these things and also a surprise when I turn down to a different wood. I can't plan a design I just to go with what I have. I laugh sometimes and sometimes something special happens. Of course there are some that end up in my waste bin too. (You won't see pictures of them)
  6. This time I really had to look all my waste bins several times to come up with enough pieces to glue together to finish. I didn't want to have to make a trip to Rocklers for more wood
  7. Grooming something this small needs a jig so I turn the whole piece into a big jig large enough to hold on to. I screwed the Rook to be to a piece of 1/4" piece of BB. This let me hold it true for a cut on each side with the band saw. Then grind away till it matches the other one!! Used different wood so a little staining might help. I found something close. So I took it outside and shoot it with some clear to see if the color was still close after the clear Dried. I used maple and they had made the chess set with cedar. The lady thought only a few pieces with chips missing were all the set needed until the guy that got the set for Christmas let her know two pieces were missing... Now to get back to the End Of The Trail saga...
  8. I did some repairing on some pieces of a chess set before Christmas then the lady gave the set to a relative but he said there were two men short to be a full set. So yesterday I was given two men to go by.. I used all two of the knives and I could have used a few more but hey I don't do this for a living...I might have gotten more exact if I knew I was gonna get paid!!!!
  9. This one required some glue up. And then some more. The piece on the bottom is acrylic and has some gold sparkles in it. I thought about making the bottom spindle much smaller, but my wife liked it just as it is. She gave her ideas as I worked on it and she likes it. After 50 years, happy wife, happy life.

    Osage Orange Bowl

    From the album: Hollow Forms

    Turned well despite some rotted space

    Bradford Pear Vases

    From the album: Hollow Forms

    Bradford Pear dyed . Made the pair for my DIL
  12. It occurred to me that many of you have not seen the whole set of hooks I made my wife. I've posted them before many of you became members. I made her one and she loved it. it is an ergonomic design that relieves stress of holding a small dia needle. It works too. Then she wanted a whole set. I did some research on needle dia, gathered a lot of exotic wood scap (new stuff too) This is the entire set on one of my (her) tables
  13. I initially made this one and my wife didn't like it because it was too fat for her hand. She loved the colors but didn't want the large hook that I put on it, because she seldom used that size. It was a job to do, but I did get it down to an acceptable size and inserted a different size. I was making the hooks myself but it was extremely difficult to cut and make it acceptable to her
  14. I just finished the last wooden egg and added it to the 10 others to complete Karen's Easter basket. Each egg is turned out of hardwood and I used a chatter tool to create the distinctive designs. Getting used to the tool, speed and applications was fun. Then I applied some different techniques with paint, markers and pencils and I learned as I went. The first few had to be redone and I also kept some that looked great, but weren't perfect egg shapes.
  15. That tool auction score I got a while back had over forty pen kits. It also had the mandrels and bushings. What it didn't have was the drill bit to square the ends. There were eight of the circuit board kits which come with the tube cast into the blank. I put the blanks on the wood lathe and turned them round as I could get them. Then I moved them to the hobby lathe and got them perfectly round. After that I chucked the blank in the hobby lathe without the mandrel and cross cut the ends to square them up. I then moved them back to the wood lathe on the mandrel and turned them and polished them. I also got a nice pen press in the deal so used it to assemble the pens. I did two of them which are the first pens I turned using a kit. I have done the Captan Eddie pens and but never any from a kit.
  16. I wasn't going to build any more bird cage ornaments. That changed. My wife was showing one to a very dear friend and she loved it. Then she said," Ron will make you one, wouldn't you?" Both looked at me and I didn't want to be the Grinch. There is so much detail and tedious work involved and it takes hours...........OH WELL I made this one about a quarter inch bigger in dia and a bit heftier. I used South American marble wood and that was a mistake. It is VERY heavy and hard. Drilling tiny holes successfully is difficult ever in soft woods. I did mess up on one piece and had to remake it. This morning she said,"you have made 3 of them, one each for our girls and one for my friend now I want one" I told her I would under one condition, that there is NO dead line for its completion.
  17. A friend of mine wanted some wood tips for his vape machine so I thought I would try and make a few. I made some out of blood wood and purple heart.
  18. Decided to make some potpourri bowls for my brothers and sisters for Christmas this year. I had some 1 3/4" Poplar 6" wide and glued two pieces together to make 6"X3.5" bowls. I have been seeing air freshener beads in the stores and decided to use them for the fragrance. I found some aluminum cups to hold the beads since there is moisture involved and hollowed out the bowls to fit them and put a recess for the covers too.
  19. I have only turned one off set center turning. I started by drilling a couple of holes that were off center line. I kept turning , routing and inventing as I went.. I finished it off with a yellow hart head and base. My daughter always admired it and I gave it to her for Christmas this year.
  20. Just finished this bird in cage Christmas tree ornament for my granddaughter. It is made of Padiuk, 3 inches long and has 32 cage bars
  21. I turned this a long time ago. A friend gave me a piece of wood he retrieved from an old train depot that was being torn down. It was over 100 years old. It looked like it had some interesting grain patterns. I cut it up to glue it and was very surprised, it still had sap in it. I doubted it was that old, but was told than the yellow pine does that?????? Anyway I think I used gorilla glue to glue it because it will set in something like that. It did come kinda nice. Still wonder about it.
  22. This is my latest attempt at an off-center turning to produce an oval shaped tool handle. This was done out of ash. Be kind, I am still learning, as can plainly be seen.
