Wood Turning

Woodturning – Walnut Bathroom Sink

In this video I demonstrate step-by-step how to make a wood sink. This one is made out of Walnut and has a satin finish. The sink is 15″ in diameter and 5 3/4″ tall. After turning the bowl shape on the lathe I filled in some small cracks with black CA glue before the final sanding. The finish is General Finishes Arm R Seal satin I picked up from Woodcraft.


Woodturning – “Natural Edge” Maple Vase

In this video I demonstrate how to make your own “natural edge” voids. I cut away some of the cracks that ran down both sides of this piece. After shaping the outside I used the Arbortech mini to cut two grooves one on each side of the vase. Cutting these grooves makes hollowing the vase out really easy.

Woodturning – Natural Edge Christmas Ornament

The guys at Easy Wood Tools asked me to make a Christmas ornament for their tree at their shop. I made a natural edge void in one side and cut out a star of Bethlehem to hang on the inside. To make the natural edge void I drilled into one side with a forstner bit before hollowing it out.


Woodturning – Handmade Wooden Penguins

I turned and carved these wooden penguins. I first turned them on the lathe between centers, before turning one end off center. With the band saw I rough cut the beak shape before using the Arbortech mini turbo to refine the shape. After taping the front part with masking tape I painted them with a airbrush. The final step was to finish them with two coats of clear lacquer.

Woodturning – Wooden Maple Leaf Turned And Airbrushed

In this video I turned a shallow dish on the lathe and found a Maple leaf in the yard to use as a template. After using a pencil to trace around the leaf I cut it out with a scroll saw. I then used a airbrush to embellish it with wood dye

MIB Orion’s Galaxy

In this video I made Orion’s Galaxy from the movie Men In Black. The galaxy sphere is made out of resin and I turned the housing parts out of Maple and a few pieces of wire. The sphere is 2″ in dia and the housing is 4 1/2″ by 3″
