    Hi! This is my first time on any kind of forum but I need help. I’m new to turning and have a lot to learn but my first obstacle is I’m highly allergic to every wood. I’m literally allergic to pretty much anything that grows from the earth. I love playing on my lathe and really doing anything...

    So i thought it was a crime for me to not have a wooden mallet in my shop! With the help of an experienced turner, i was able to make my first mallet from this nice piece of white oak! Check out the build video, here...

    Hey folks! Got a question: I’ve got an old Sears Craftsman Model 113.228162 lathe, and the other day I was turning a spindle on it. I turned off the lathe and noticed that the piece stopped rather suddenly rather than carrying on spinning while slowing down like normal. When I turned it on...

    I built this for a church in El Segundo California. They bought a new standard electronic piano and wanted me to design and build something more fitting for their space. The look I was going for was the appearance of rain dancing off a pond. The wood discs are at different levels to allow sound...
  10. Woodturning
    The is the first thing I've ever turned. It's a variation of a slimline made from Tiger Wood. I used 2 coat's of Huts crystal friction coat as the finnish. Let me know what you think... I made a ton of mistakes (i'm guessing this is pretty standard for a first timer), but all in all...
