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.


Easy Airbrushing With Stencils / Myrtlewood Platter

I turned this Myrtlewood platter on the lathe, and put some detail on the rim with my new Easy Wood Micro Detailer. After turning and sanding it up to 600 grit. I painted a Maple leaf using a airbrush and stencil from Chroma Craft. I finished the piece off with three coats of high gloss lacquer

Recycled Skateboard Project / Woodturning

Mobile shop road trip! This project is made out of recycled skateboards. Paul from Made By Skate Boarding made this awesome blank for me to turn at the demo on Saturday. We had a great time hanging out with a group of really cool people.
