Wood going to waste!

04-13-2010 03:31 PM by whiskeyturner | 8 comments »

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...

~ the love of wood ~ #3: Boutique Timbers - New Website

04-13-2010 01:43 PM by DoctorDan | 5 comments »

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. 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. (Actually Joel was really helpful. He, along with Ralph came over earlier in the week and helped with final preps. He also operated the drywall jack all day Saturday.)Matt, trimming one of t...

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.

04-13-2010 03:56 AM by littlecope | 20 comments »

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...
