You are an excellent teacher!!! I love watching your videos. They are so clear and easy to follow. Thanks to you, I have tried quite a few "do-it-myself" projects. Thank you ever so much!! You gave me the confidence to try. :)
One of my favorite lathe tricks is to use files and very fine rasps/rifflers. It's much easier to fine tune your turning with a file, and you don't have to worry about catching your chisel and having to turn it again.
You’re amazing! I love your videos. I bought a house last year. My dream came true! To save money I have been buying older wooden furniture and restoring it myself. I’ve found some amazing pieces that looked beat up and ugly, but with some time and work have become beautiful one of a kind pieces for my home.
Your videos have helped me tremendously and inspired me. Thank you for giving me the confidence to try. Plus I saved a ton of money! Furnishing my home this way allowed me to buy my house free and clear, no mortgage! But I still have beautiful furniture.
A great project. I shall be sorting my wood pile tomorrow to find some scrap to make my own version.
If anyone hasn't tried woodturning the ought to have a go as soon as they can. There is something therapeutic about the smell of the wood, shavings flying over your shoulder and ending up with something beautiful, useful or both.
Hey Leah that was so cool. I always loved working with the lathe when I was in high school. I would have one now but I have no Workshop just a one stall garage that's occupied with a car and a motorcycle and a tool chest as well as a table saw. It's so much fun seeing what you can make with the lathe. That is a great-looking mallet. And you made it, it is part of you and will be handed down. Fantastic video.
Thank you for commenting. BTW My mother and father just returned last night from Denmark. They LOVED IT! Fredericia on the Jutland peninsula was one of their favorites places. I am hoping that I can travel to your beautiful country in the spring. Thanks again for your kind words.
Is that mallet heavy enough? If it isn't, you'll get tired in a short while. I've worked with several mallets of different weights and I found out that the most useful for general purposes weighs 1 Kg and is made of very hard rubber. Smaller ones hit your hand instead of your tool. But wooden mallets are better for carving work, like this beautiful example.
It did look awesome after you oiled it with the different wood colours. I bet If you did need to put a new wedge in, a piece of dark wood right between the light colour wedge would look great. I'm a beginner wood worker and home carpenter and love your way of explaining things. Keep up the good work.
Going from log to creation is a process. It will take well over a year to finish. Whether W oak, Walnut or Ash they all have beauty. How to cut, when to cut, how to dry and how much is just the beginning. I wish you well
You have taught me so much , just found out what that goffie angle thing on that one side of a square is for. It's to find the center of a round piece of wood. Keep up the informative posts and maybe someday I'll know as much . 74 years old and still don't know all the answers.
I bet anyone who started watching this continued until the end. Leah, you have such a great mind and talented hands, you always have topics to captivate your audience.
Looking forward to the next you tube notification from your channel.
My first tool in my shop what a Delta-Rockwell wood lathe as a gift from my father in law. I love using it to complete my projects. You did an excellent job Leah. Take care and have a great weekend. Be Safe. Tim
seejanedrill roflol, we just never know what my brain is going to think of next, more importantly, we never know what is going to pop out of my mouth. That’s the scary part...Cindy says I never fail to amaze her too, glad I can amaze someone :). But I hope you know how important y’all are to me...y’all do a video, it makes something connect and I’ve got a bit of knowledge back or have some new tool for my brain box! Life is very good
