bookends

Filed under: film, projects — howarth frank @ 8:09 pm

These bookends are made from walnut and birch.  The design idea was to abstract a half open book.  The form is an “L” representing the binding and a quarter of a segmented wood turned piece representing the pages in the “L.”  The piece is solid to make it as heavy as possible to help hold back the books.

Clamping the segmented section for the bookends.  I thought I had cut the wedges at 18 degrees but they were 17.2 and that added up over 20 segments. I had to add an extra wedge.

Firewood

Filed under: film, projects — howarth frank @ 3:49 am

In this video, I make a piece of maple firewood.  I start by removing the finish from a back roller I made a little over a year ago.  I proceed by roughing up the surface with sandpaper. This allows me to build the shape into a cylinder.  From the cylinder I can make the final form of the firewood.  Happy April Fools

Shop cabinet doors and drawers

Filed under: wood shop, film — howarth frank @ 3:57 pm

Turning wood on the lathe produces a lot of wood chips. Turning big pieces of green wood produces even more.  I was finding I needed to streamline the cleaning up of these wood chips after a turning project.  I decided adding doors and drawers to the lathe cabinet would be the most helpful in this clean up process. In this video, I add 3 doors with Salice Series 200 hinges to the cabinet.  In addition, I make three drawer boxes for the cabinet.
