Thread: how can i make uniform diametre ends to coppiced poles?
05/03/2010 23:06:21
Welcome Daniel
 
Sounds like an interesting project, the sort of tool you want is a dowel reemer if that is what they are called it is a 2 handed tool you wind on to a piece of timber to cut dowels with, i will see if i can find a picture.
 
Good luck with the project and let us see it when done or even as you do it.

Very close Richard,
 
There is only one piece at a time but the "boat shaped" piece is fixed to an MDF backplate with a scrap section to make up the whole diameter, then as you say reverse it to turn the opposit edge.
 
If you do 2 at a time it will work but they are often too long and thin to get the size for a post it pad.

Very nice bowl, white ash is something i have always liked but not often got !
 
A tip for the photography, drape the curtain over the box, it will make a great backdrop.

I like some have suggested think you should be fine using super glue with a dust mask, the trouble you are experiencing is because you are not using it as it was designed so there will be no relevent health warning,
 
Just keep your work area well ventelated and wear a mask, failing that just check at your docs, better safe than sorry

Thanks Guys
 
It was an experiment, i wanted to buy a trumpet pen but couldnt find one i liked so i made one instead, the base was a break from the competition work, still have one to finish, ( well start actually,) so yes to the "how to", but after the show.

I have a smallish compressor that sits under my bench most of the time, i only use it for the nail gun, i keep meaning to look at other tools for it but just havn't got round to it.
 
When i need it i wouldnt be without it ! just one thing though if you can set it up outside the workshop that is a good, idea mine is very noisy !

Glad to hear things are looking up for you, let us see your workshop when you get it set up, i am intreegued on how people set up there workshops, it often gives an insight to adjustments i can make to mine.

Well i think they are all prety dumb,
 
Mind you i bought a lottery scratch  card last week and won a fiver, then threw the card away with some rubbish in the car.  so that makes me a bit foolish as well i suppose.

Very nice piece of wood Sam
 
I have often looked at the African Blackwood at my local suppliers, a tad too expensive for me, very nice of someone to give it to you.
 
I like the idea but i must agree with Marc about the choice of contrast timber, sorry
 
Well done for a great idea though look forward to your next project.

I know what the confusion is all about, i am not sure myself, the form says you must send the entry form to Getwoodworking Live at My Hobbystores address in Kent.
 
I sent a message to Clare Hiscock but she must be busy because it hasnt been read yet.
 
Anyone else know ?
