    Thread on turning rings?

    A short while back I saw a thread on turning rings and the OP was asking about how to hold them to turn the inner surface. I have tried to find it but can't. Had anyone any idea where it is and if so can you post the link for it please?

    Knitting needles

    It's got to be high amongst the strangest things I have been asked to make. The pair of rather large, almost fence pole size, knitting needles. 25mm X 50cm, black walnut and oak, 30mm X60cm, black walnut and oak and 40mm X 63cm, accoya and box. It was interesting and good skew chisel practice...

    Band saw box

    I have been making a fair amount of crochet hooks for various people and though a bit to one side about the sowing fraternity. They use a lot of pins don't they. These are some of them. Well SWMBO was asking if I could make her a better pin cushion as the one I made a long time ago was...

    Jonz wooden clock.

    Wooden clock 2012. Edited version as I hit the wrong button part way through posting :eek::eek: Silly boy! A year or so back I decided that I would like to make a wooden clock. Not one with brass rods, bearings or the like, but apart from the main weight and pendulum weight, completely out...

    Hitachi 1/4" router bearing problem.

    I have had a Hitachi M8V 1/4" router for years now and it has just started to sound as if one of the motor bearings is giving up, it rattles/screeches at times depending on the loading. It has been a very good router and although it's fairly old it's only been lightly used. Does anyone know if...

    I do like inside out vases

    I have grown to like inside out turning and decided to try to do something for the lady who has everything, or thinks she does? This is oak with a black walnut base. The glue for the base is drying at the moment and then all it needs is a coat of hard wax oil and a polish and then it's ready for...

    Darkening a solid light oak TV stand

    It's not very often that I get to look inti this bit, but I have been given a task by SWMBO. We have just bought a nice low light oak haunted fish tank unit (TV stand to some) and SWMBO would like it darker than it is. It is hand waxed, with what type of wax is an unknown. Has anyone any ideas...

    My latest swop.

    I went in to see a guy in a local joiner/cabinet makers on Wednesday to see what off cuts they had. They had had some very nice black walnut in a couple of weeks back and I wondered?? Well, they had some of the off cuts from that little lot and I got some of it. I didn't get it for nowt though...

    Inside out candle stick

    I have wanted to turn a heart inside out jobbie for ages and at last I have got around to trying it. I have to admit that it's slightly easier to do a 2 piece than an 8 piece :mrgreen: I'm not too pleased with the finish because when I was turning the inside I had some break away from the top...

    6" round beveled edge mirrors?

    A fair while back I bought some of these mirrors from Axminster Power Tools. They no longer sell them. I have done a search and just can't find any? Has anyone any idea where I can get them from? They are for dressing table mirrors that I have done in the past, but it looks as if they may have...

    74 years ago today?

    yes 74 years ago today the war in Europe ended. Has there been any recognition in the news or radoi/TV? Non that I have read/seen/heard. Doesn't it matter any more? Can't we celebrate the eand of all those years of death and destruction in that war? Seems not! Very sad!
