    Damaged blade on Bandsaw?

    I have a Rikon 14" Band Saw. One of the green ones right before they switched to blue. I haven't used it since last fall when I had a bit of a mis-hap. I was sawing some tree branches into smaller segments that would fit into my little fire pit. Heard a bang...maybe hit a knot...the wood kicked...

    Beginner Q - How to make a Trivitt?

    Hi Guys...After a long layoff from my woodworking I'm getting back at it again. This is probably a simple project for most of y'all but looking for suggestions how to attack this one. I have four custom made tiles...they were my father's from the 1960's. They have been in a drawer for decades...

    I need to turn a spoon...

    so from the pictures with the knives...I'm guessing you carve the bowl of the knife? and the spoon with the arched handle...is that handle done on the lathe? I expect I could do a straight handle but how do you do the arched handle? (I'm kind of new at this...)

    I need to turn a spoon...

    My son is a chef and asked me to make him a spoon. Never did one before. I'm going to surf the web to look for tutorials but I thought I would ask here too. Does anybody have advice on spooning? :)

    Exploding Koa pen blanks...

    I just ruined my second koa pen blank in a row. i got the first one down to finishing cuts when a couple big chunks broke out of the end. Enough to ruin the blank. Started on a second one tonight and it broke into pieces as I was roughing the blank. This is my first experience turning koa. Is...

    Trouble with CA Finish on Pens

    Thanks for all the tips...I'll keep trying and hope they gets better... Yes, I think that's it too. Because it looked fine right up until the instant the pen lost its lustre and the white fibers appeared in the finish (I think they were from the towel). I know I saw a video tutorial about...

    Trouble with CA Finish on Pens

    So far I've made about a dozen pens. Tried a CA finish on the last five. First I used a Q-Tip and applied the CA while rotating the pens on the lathe by hand. The I read about the method of using a paper towel applicator and letting the lathe run while applying the glue. So I've tried that three...

    Spindle Gouge vs Fingernail Gouge

    This is what I was looking for...more of why you would use one or the other....the physical differences are kind of obvious if you look at them. I'm at the stage when I'm still trying to decide which tool to grab....I'd like to go on something more than "lets see what this one will do...."...
