Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #13: The Big Top

09-30-2016 02:21 AM by EarlS | 0 comments »

I didn’t really spent much time thinking about how the desk top would be built. I planed and jointed the walnut along with the maple and cherry. I proceeded to glue up the panels using a biscuit jointer. With a top this large (39×72) I used 4 – 10” wide boards and glued them in pairs then glued the pairs together. I also clamped the ends and middle to keep the board from cupping from the clamping pressure. From there I glued up the final 4 board panel. After...

Tried blacking out the fenders and it turned out ok, walnut is a much blacker wood when stained but the oaks wood grain peeking through looks pretty good. but won’t be doing it again I think. The dutch oil should look good.

DRYING WOOD FOR TURNING #2: What we learned

09-29-2016 09:11 PM by Wildwood | 0 comments »

After checking out the Wood Handbook hope everyone has a better basic understanding about trees and wood drying process. Whether wood is air or kiln dry to a certain moisture content doesn’t mean it will stay that way.Looking at a tree stump learned a tree starts with outer/inner bark, layer of cambium, sap wood heart wood and at the center of all that is the pith. Sap is mostly water. In compression/reaction and abnormal wood the pith will not alway be in the center of the log. Anyone t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1782: Emotional Real Estate

Did you ever feel that you were running in lots of directions at once?  Lately, that is exactly how things have felt for me. I have been busy from the time I wake until the time I finally go to sleep, but have been going from one thing to another to yet another. I don't think that this is a bad thing at all, really. Because in the process, I am checking off a lot of things that I wanted to get done and in the end, accomplishing a great deal.  To the outsider, it may not loo...
