Lidded Box

I turned my first lidded box today!

This was inspired by Carl Jacobson's awesome video Wood Turning Small Sycamore Box. Carl's videos are great and you should check him out for all sorts of wood turning content!

I really enjoyed making this box and have been wanting to try it for a long time and finally decided it would be a perfect little birthday present for my wifes birthday today!

Thanks for stopping by I'll be posting lot more projects real soon!

Lathe Tool Rack

Thanks to Mickey & Jed's Woodworking for the inspiration and plans to make this awesome Woodturning tool rack!

It came out great and I have room for five more tools! I guess that means I need to buy some more!!!

One thing I think I would change if I make another one is to make it just a bit wider to have a little more room between tools. Otherwise I'm very please with the project

Woodturning: My first project!

This evening I finished my first wood turning project, a simple wooden mallet.

I had a blast and it was so fun! Here is a quick little video to let you all see what I did.

One of the very first pieces of equipment for my shop I've purchased is a dust collector.

I feel it is very important piece of equipment not only for cleanliness but personal health safety as well.

Here is a video I made of the set up process.
