I meant to post this post quite along time ago. I guess I got sidetracked and I forgot.Today I found the pictures I had taken for it and decided to post it now. Let me start off that I have an extremely small and weird shaped shop, so anything ...

My name is Allison and I live in a little mountain town in northeastern Ca. I found woodworking and my subsequent love for it quite by accident, literally. I had broken my knee and could not go anywhere and a friend brought home a scroll saw to try so I would have something to do. He showed me how to use it and I have been hooked ever since! That broken knee occurred on Jan. 11th 2005, so I am coming up on my 3rd year . I have had a million trials and a million more errors and have enjoyed learning from everyone of them. I have tried different forms of woodworking and found my biggest passion to be intarsia. I prefer to not use any paint or stain on my projects and love the challenge of finding the right color for the project in the natural wood itself. In Jan of 2007 I was given a computer and have been learning it with a LOT of help from nice people here in cyberspace. I sure am excited about joining this community of woodworking enthusiasts and sure could use perhaps someone to show me around. Believe it or not I found this site just now also quite by accident, literally! Thank You

I am working on a couple Pelicans that I am hoping to incorporate into a “big picture” somehow. They are done completely in hardwoods and I was thinking of perhaps sharing how I sanded little pieces such as these. I have already starte...
I found an incredible deal before last Christmas while visiting my father down in southern Ca, at the La Mirada swap meet. 1/4 inch tongue and groove aromatic cedar. I would say I got around 25 pieces of it. They are all in 3 foot lengths . &nb...
I just posted this on my personal blog( so some of the wording may be strange but the content is the same) but kinda felt it was worth sharing with any of you that may find yourselves wondering what to do with all those paper patterns you get with...
A few months ago I had read an article about ebonizing wood with steel wool and vinegar. Awhile back I tried this and absolutely nothing happened. I never even tried again. Ebonizing is a stain of sorts I guess. I also have heard there are severa...
