Furniture

Most turners have seen beautiful furniture made with wonderful spindles. I have seen tables, chairs, bed posts, and many other spindles. I've also seen 1/2 spindles used as trim on many pieces of furniture like dressers and cabinets.

So, don't dismiss making furniture if you want to make something with turning in it!!

 

Island LegsIsland Legs
By: Bill Nosie
In this photo journal, Bill shows us how he makes a pair of legs for a kitchen island. The legs are challenging with 3 different sized spheres on them. This is a great story of a practical turning.

 

Making Coat HooksMaking Coat Hooks
By: Mattias @ Woodgears.ca
In this photo tutorial, Mattias shows us how he uses red oak to build a sturdy coat rack using his own turned wood coat hooks (pegs). He turns them two at a time on a single spindle and they come out ready nice.

And one of the fun aspects of this project is that Mattias is using an older lathe with a dead tail stock center so he oils the wood to ensure that it rotates smoothly. Take a peek!

 

Turning a miniature stoolTurning a miniature stool
By: Alan Liland
In this wonderful tutorial, Alan shows us how to make a small ~6" turned wood stool. This is a great project for people who love miniatures and also for people that want to "practice" before making a full sized model.

Alan makes what for many people is a complex 3D project into a simple set of steps resulting in a great project. I hope that you give it a try!

 

Make your own Four Poster BedMake your own Four Poster Bed
By: Shopsmith
In this project, Shopsmith does an excellent job of showing all the aspects of making this four poster bed including the turnings for multi-piece tall spindles at the corners. They give full parts lists, and drawings!

If you've ever considered making your own four poster bed then this is one project worth peeking at!!

 

Turning a Triangle StoolTurning a Triangle Stool
By: Tom Rennie
In this project, Tom explains the historical nature of stools and then shows how me makes one using a manual lathe. It's fun to learn more about the history of the stool and to see how Tom makes one!

 

A Four-Post Turned ChairA Four-Post Turned Chair
By: Tom Rettie
In this project, Tom shows us how he makes a chair similar in design to those made in the 14th to 16 centuries. Tom uses a homemade flywheel treadle lathe keeping in tune with the time period. This is a wonderful Renaissance piece and a great project to make.

Dust Right® Dust Separator

On Sale for only $59.99

Save $40.00

List Price: $99.99

Turn any shop vacuum with a 2-1/4'' ID outlet into a 2-stage dust and chip separator. When used with most power tools and shop vacuums, the Dust Right® Separator captures sawdust, wood chips, and other debris before it enters your vacuum, preventing the loss of suction power caused by a clogged vacuum filter. The five-caster base makes it exceptionally stable and easy to maneuver around the shop. Plus, hoses connect inside the in/out ports, preventing unintentional disconnections. The Dust Right® Separator creates a cyclonic air flow that causes most wood dust particles and other materials that are heavier than air to separate, preventing them from being passed to the vacuum. The vortex effect that is created prevents the loss of suction caused by prematurely clogged filters

Micro Dust Air Filtration System

On Sale for only $599.99

Save $100.00

List Price: $699.99

The PM1250 Air Filtration System employs an electrostatic filter that attracts and removes particles as small as 0.1 micron in size. It cycles the air in a 680 square foot space—the equivalent of an oversized 2-car garage—up to five times in a single hour. When set at the lowest setting, the system is about as quiet as a library, and when on high, it's quieter than normal conversation. Unlike most other air filtration systems, the PM1250 is portable and freestanding, meaning you can carry it to wherever filtration is most needed, then simply set it on the floor or the bench. The angle is adjustable using the knobs on the side of the unit. If you like, it can also be mounted to the wall or ceiling.
