Dennis Paullus & Joseph Voda
Glue Block Chucking, Lathe Safety &Making a Scoop
Description:
Dennis emphasized safety for eyes and hands saying remember the “No Go Zones” on the lathes. Never put your hands on the other side of the tool rest when turning. Remember, sharp edges have the potential to cut to the bone. Dennis demonstrated several examples of end grain cutoff billets glued up to conserve
exotic woods. Dennis uses Titebond glue and waits 24 hours before turning.
How to Make a Scoop - Joseph turned on the Delta Midi Lathe shaping a piece of wood secured in the chuck. After rounding out the wood, the scoop was hollowed out using a variety of tools (drill chucks and scrapers). Joseph turned coves and beads for added detail and used a modified cheese cutter with wire to create burned details. The scoop was secured to a jig and shaped with a coping saw and sanded with a drum sander.
