  • Making a Wooden Lampshade

    I thought this was interesting.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

    Very interesting. I wonder what the total project time was.

      Being cut out of a raw piece of wood what is going to keep it from twisting out of shape.

        Im sure being turned out of wet timber,it will surely split as the heat from the light bulb dries the wood,ive seen other turners use this method with the light up too the wood while turning before,they were making bowls though.

            Good skills and nice result but it was a shame that 9/10 of that lovely piece of wood was thrown away

              Could he have cut a deep well and left more of the center portion intact and then set about separating the shade? It would make it harder to thin the walls and I'd suspect even at that point he would be close to losing 40-50% of the wood. Even with fretwork you can lose +50% of the wood. You might get more projects but your waste wood might still be high. Maybe he makes his own OSB boards or was running real low on kindling.

                    Shrink wrap systems
                    by Linda In Phoenix
                    What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                    Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

                    New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

                    At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

                    I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
