Recently I found that the gardening section of my favorite hardwear store has very exotic looking hardwood stakes in a range of sizes, from pen blank size to around 4inch square in lengths of 1 to 5 foot depending on it’s thickness. Some of these stakes look to be a She-oak (Casuarina) of some type, there are others that are highly figured & attractive that i can’t begin to identify. I have used a couple of these for tool handles and i’m very happy with the results, they...

I purchase most of my nicer timber in rough slab form from Mal Ward from Boutique Timbers. They’ve recently asked me to help them set up a website for their business. They didn’t want much, just an online business card with contact details. Recently, I’ve grown to like blogger and thought I could use it to meet their needs. http://boutiquetimbers.blogspot.com/ Any feed back on site design, navigation, layout, information, etc I’d be more than happy to receive an email.

Whew, it’s Monday evening and I’m still one tired puppy… But we got ‘er done. About 90% of the major construction (hanging the ceiling and walls) is done and I can move ahead on taping/mudding and painting.Here’s my buddy Joel ‘supervising’ as we get started.

Hey folks. Its my birthday in 3 days, and for it my “biological dad” sent me this slab of wood and a giftcard for rockler in the mail. Now the giftcard I love, because I shouldnt have a problem finding something I want that I can use with it, but the slabs another matter. Its about 6 inches deep, 8 across and 20 long, with spines on the bottom of it. Im going to be working with all handtools this summer, and if I could make this into lumber i’d be alot happier, anyone got an...
The title says it all!!I’m sort of between projects right now, so I figured to blast out a box in my “spare” time.At the beginning of the month people moved out from a couple of apartments in the building and left a veritable mountain of furniture behind. I looked it over… mostly particle board stuff… but there was a small night stand that caught my eye.I was a little confused by the weight of the thing, thought it was hardwood, but I guess it’s Pine. Someb...
