Wood Turning

Woodturning – TIE Fighter Christmas Ornament

This is a pretty easy project that only takes a few hours. I turned the body on the lathe, and cut the wings on the band saw. I used Walnut for both Tie fighters on one I painted gilding cream on the wings. They’re 3 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ and I finished them off with Howard wax.


Woodturning – Turned and Carved Maple Vase

In this video Robin and I turned this vase one the lathe. Robin shaped the outside and I hollowed it out and carved the top to look like water.

Woodturning – Turned 22″ Elm Bowl / Awesome CNC Sign

In this video I did a second turn on a 22″ Elm bowl I started a few months ago at the Woodcraft demo in Seattle WA. The bowl is still a little wet so I packed it back in the shavings to dry.

I also finished a sign my buddy Jake made for me. Jake used a CNC to make this awesome sign for my shop. I burnt it with a Lichtenberg burner and Robin painted it.


Power Carving A New Walnut Stand For Last Weeks Project

In this video I show you how I made this Walnut stand for the piece I turned last week. I cut the two pieces out on the bandsaw and shaped them with the Arbortech Turboplane.

Woodturning Maple Burl and Hand Blown Glass Piece

This is a colloabortion piece between Scott Darlington and myself. Scott works out of the Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle WA. I did a woodturning demo about a month ago at the center, that’s when Scott and I worked on the glass pieces for this project.

I turned a piece of Maple burl on the lathe and made a Walnut stand to holed it. The piece is 16″ tall and the Maple burl is 7 1/2″ x 3″ I got the piece from Mike a friend who lives in Canada.

Resin and Aluminum / A Collab With Zac Higgins

We headed south to Carson City Nevada for a collab with Zac Higgins from NV Woodwerks. He has a awesome shop, I was like a kid in a candy store! Zac and I cast a resin and aluminum blank while we were there. I turned the piece on the lathe using East Wood Tools new carbide negative rake cutters. These newly designed cutters really make turning resin a joy.
