    Last year, I bought a used wood-lathe. Here is the stand, I built for it. I already had some bords and two parts of an old sliding door. For the frame my choice was laminated spruce (4 x 6 cm and 4 x 8 cm), which I got for an acceptable price. I learned a lot for and by doing this project ...
  2. Woodturning and Lathes
    I was on monday 18.11. with my wife in a town nearby buying a 2nd hand lathe from 1995. It is a Dutch Huvema 1000-2. It has some oksidation on it's surface and I have to take it of with something. Haven't really thought of it yet. First things first and that is not on the top of the list. We...

  4. Show N' Tell
    My wife signed me up for a craft show at the end of the month so I have been busy making things. Jewelery always sells good even if it's wood so I am cranking out some bracelets on the router mill with my lathe attachment. As an experiment I recently tried roughing out a wood chain with the...
  5. Tools and Woodworking
    Hello, Was fairly surprised recently when I was browsing some threads about bowls and realised that some jobs that I always assumed would be done on a lathe are also perfectly feasible using a router and jigs. Anybody got any further examples of jobs done with router that my old ignorant self...

    I have an old (late 60’s early 70’s) Craftsman Radial Arm Saw, Rockwell wood lathe, and an Atlas Power King 4 inch jointer. All are in fair shape but would need to be refurbished. The wood lathe comes with a full set of tools and a table-mounted grinder with attachment for sharping the tools...

  10. Woodturning and Lathes
    I've been really enjoying turning since I got a Nova DVR set up and running about the first of July or so. Here are a few of my recent offerings. The first three pictures are a figured maple bowl made from a blank I purchased on eBay that was shipped from Alaska. The second is a raised patter...

  12. Woodturning and Lathes
    I don't know if my intro worked or not. While my dinner is in the oven, I will give a brief overview of my needs. I have been struggling with the idea of making a router lathe, but one that has a little more functionality than the usual. I would like to make it not only a copy-follower but...
  13. Show N' Tell
    Was at a craft show a few weeks back with some canes for sale and a scoutmaster asked if I did staffs. I told him I hadn't but would give it a try. Since the lathes and the router crafter can't take more than about 36 inches I had to make it in two pieces. Of course, since the stock i used is...
  14. Woodturning and Lathes
    Here's a picture of the gouges that came with my lathe. Until I tried to turn a piece of pine the other day, I don't think they had ever touched wood. They definitely need sharpening, and I am looking for a used bench grinder, or even a new one if it isn't prohibitively expensive. I think...
