    Just bought a second hand wood turning lathe, so far, self taught, if anyone here is into it and can spare some tips drop me an email, thanks ;-)

    This was a seasoned log I pulled from my log store (found out latter green wood is easier to work with! Its my first try anyway.

    I have a new stash of green Oak and Hawthorn to play with this week ;-)

    getting a wood lathe in a few weeks, well, technically I already have it.. My grandpa was a great wood turner and general fettler of things (he tried to invent the automatic razor, but used a petrol engine and it blew up leaving him scarred for life.) but anyway, when he died all his woodworking tools went into my mums garage. She promptly moved to france and all the stuff is still in a locked garage waiting for me to collect it and transfer it to my garage!

    I’m actually really excited!

    Are the barcodes for scanning through a weigh bridge or such like?

    Garage contains a highly sophisticated picking system.

    Cool wheels!

    I made a chicken/cider/mushroom thing, from my River Cottage cookbook. While tasty, those wheels are a lot more impressive!

    Any chance you could knock up one of those with 26″ wheels?? That is brilliant!

    sadly my machine isnt big enough to make 26″ billet wheels, but defo could make one with standard mtb wheels.

    What a fantastic thread. I feel utterly inspired.

    I made half a picture of Marylin. I know it’s not the same as actually making something but I was feeling left out.

    Thanks. like all these things it just takes lots of practise. If Redthunder pops along with some of his work it’ll make this look like the incoherent scribblings of a three year old.

    finished! wrap it and shove it under the tree.

    on trend wide bars? might need trimming a bit perhaps.

    Ah Porter_Jamie, that is just absolutely brilliant, love it.

    Spent some of this evening doing rough shaping for a chaindevice cage… Once again wishing for a proper lathe and mill rather than my crappy unimat, so much flex… But it’ll do the job and what’s more it’ll have millions of machining marks on it so dobbers’ll go “Oh it’s all machined, like Hope” :mrgreen:

    That bike looks ace, though the blue dust caps have to go.

    Did the drawings, fabricated and erected. There’s a mirror image the other end of the building too.

    Good job maycontainnuts, I’ve designed many of them, never made one though! Just an observation; you may need sway bracing perpendicular to the face of the building (unless it’s not free standing and is tied to the building?)

    porter-jamie, is that frame rated for a triple clamp fork? You need to be careful, it could be a child’s face… 8)

    I think the last thing I made that wasn’t work was this wood-burning stove out of tin cans.

    But before that, I built bunk beds for my boys

    you are right! i think the plan is to make some kind of padding for the stem/quill/bars to stop him smashing his face to pieces if he head-buts it.

    the headset is an FSA aheadset, but there are two threaded collars either side of the top ‘yoke’ (or crown in mtb speak i suppose) and then the quill/stem/bars go inside the steerer because we wanted to allow for him getting bigger. if he needs lots more reach its going to have to be a new bar/stem/quill! the seattube has lots of angle so the reach gets more as the post comes up.

    That was the look I was after, but no – all jigsaw and sandpaper!
    I designed it in Illustrator, then printed it onto tons of sheets of A4, then spraymounted it to the birch ply.
    A lot of hassle, but once I get an idea in my head…

    This:

    It’s a GPS logger built out of an old bluetooth GPS dongle and an At328-based serial logger.

    It works, but I do need to find a way of parsing the output with the correct datum to get accurate positional data. Currently it’s a bit off.
