  • Done and Gone

    Hi everyone. Been a while since I last visited the site but I've been busy doing the order for 25 custom knife blocks. Been quite a project but I'm glad to report that they are DONE and GONE-- on the way to California. I spent 3 days scrolling the 350 slots for the knives and another day scrolling the 50 bloodwood accent inlays needed for the blocks .On to the next project.

              I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
              I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

              by millwab
              I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
