Portfolio of Shop Projects - Various

These are pictures of several of my shop projects. I may add more information in the future, but in the mean time, if you have any questions or are interested in more information so you could try to build one of these yourself, please feel free to contact me.

My home made work bench. The top is made from a lamination of 5 sheets of 3/4" plywood and a 1/4 hardboard cover. The frame was from a much larger bench that I bought, then took apart. It is very tight-grained fir.
A shop built 12 inch disk sander. I could only find an 8 inch platen so it is built out with am MDF disk to 12 inches. What I really like about it is that it very quiet and the dust collection is very effective. Idea is from an old Shop Notes.
My Delta Heavy Duty lathe that I modified to have electronic speed control. The speed control came from Dealers Electric on the web.
A simple but very useful enhancement to make a standard grinder much more usable for sharpening lathe tools.
This is a setup I use to sharpen a variety of lathe tools. Note the fixture base is indexed to different tool angles. This idea came from a demonstration I saw by Jon Siegel at the AAW turning Symposium in 2002.
A simple but very effective steady rest when used for long spindles. Another idea I saw being used by Jon Siegel at the 2002 AAW turning symposium in Rhode Island.
My version of a Longworth, used to turn the bottom of bowls. Right hand photo shows a small walnut bowl mounted. Information on a Longworth Chuck is available here.
