Thread: dumbing down?
11/02/2010 00:45:56
I agree with your comments Marc, about ideas doing the rounds and yes they do come back again and again, but this is often because they are good ideas,
There are no new ideas anymore, after all these years all we can do is interpret and bring our own version to something that has been done before. and there is nothing wrong with changing an idea to suit yourself or taking a small spark from it to inspire something "new" I do ! and i am sure most of the members to this site do too ! maybe that is something achievable rather than bringing projects to suit all the people all the time ?
That aside i havnt been able to get a copy of the mag yet, so i might change my mind when i finally do get a copy ?

You are doing well there, Like Derek says the open segments are a little more forgiving but it all comes with practice
Thread: Is this Safe??????
08/02/2010 23:24:45
I have done some daft things  in my time and have the scars to prove it ! 
This is one i did do once ! it dose work but not advisable, althought the one main point i would say with your set up is the clamp ? you are going to pinch the blade as soon as you have cut through the wall of the box.
I would go with Baz's idea and work off the fence, but with no guarding watch where your hands are and use push sticks, that blade will apear quickly out of the back end of the cut !
It is far safer to cut by hand, or a bandsaw if you have acess to one.
Thread: Getting Turning To the Competition
03/02/2010 22:27:35
I like many others will be sending work to the turning competition, and like many others do not relish making the trip to London and back twice.
Is anyone going anyware near Wiltshire on either of the first couple of days of the show ? if so can i ask you to take my work up to the show, it will all be securly packed,
I will be attending the last day so i can bring my work back, of course if i can do a similar service to anyone else living near enough, on the return journey i will be happy to help.
If possible there might be others who can do a similar service to help others ?
Thread: Turning Comp-Who is entering?
03/02/2010 17:54:24

Very nice piece looks like a very nice piece of timber too, why too small ?
Thread: Making a high angle smoothing plane.
02/02/2010 23:28:57
Great idea, what wood have you used for the main body, looks like Brazillian Tulip or Paduke ?
Thread: Ollys Table

Thats a grand job you have done there, Really like the leg design, i wasnt sure when i first saw it but it looks good now its done.
Thread: Lamp table design ?
01/02/2010 19:31:06
I made a lamp many years ago that was designed like "Cleopatras Needle" a steady taper is fairly straight forward but add an inlay to the design too
Thread: Bob Chapman demo

Like the wave piece would realy like to see him turning it, like Marc though on the square not keen on the bright paints, glad  to hear you enjoyed it though,
Thread: Get Woodworking Live! Who will be there....?
26/01/2010 23:29:42
All we need is a big room little round windows and a very strong hose pipe, who needs a boat, we are only going to play with the lathes after all.
Hoping to sort out something about the turning will have to wait and see, but still looking forward to putting some faces to the names on the site. when i do get there.
Thread: walnut jewelly box construction progress
26/01/2010 00:07:11
I think for a first piece you have done quite well so far, the corners fit together well and the groove seems a nice fit to the scraps you are using, as for the lid i would agree with Derek it would be better to make the box as a whole and cut off the lid section.
Considering you cut down all the timber by hand it all looks quite good, remember some of the members have been doing this for a long time, look forward to the next instalments
Thread: Put a handle on it
25/01/2010 23:51:58
Ash is a very common wood for handles as was Box years back, I have had problem with box in the past but it is usually due to the wood being too dry.
I have a lot of cheap Mahogany scraps and off cuts so a lot of my handles are made from that now, as for ferrels i find copper pipe or even chrome pipe like the worktop supports is good.
Dave Robberts did an article around ten years ago on tool handles, he turned a load in different woods and different shapes but i suspect it is too far back to find which issue it was in now, worth a look though.
