Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #3: A Theme for the Auction Items: "Pink at Heart"

06-18-2010 07:46 PM by Jonathan | 7 comments »

I have decided to title the series of items for the auction: “Pink at Heart.” I came up with the idea this morning, after deciding I was going to buy some Pink Lyptus to incorporate into the items I’m making for the fundraising auction for the 3-Day Walk for the Cure my wife will be participating in during the month of November, held in San Diego, CA. I dug through about 100-BF of 4/4 Pink Lyptus this morning at the lumber store to find a single board that I thought wo...

Hearne Hardwoods = Great Service for the little guy

06-18-2010 07:35 PM by slappy | 6 comments »

I just got back from Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford. I have been to their saw mill three times so far. The guys that work there are very knowledgeable about their product and are always willing to help. Even the owner will help you out if you need it. Now i only bought an 8/4 Maple and a 4/4 Jatoba board which is a small order and these guys still treat you as a first rate customer. Great Place!

Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #2: First Item: Cherry, Walnut, and Curly Maple Cutting Board

06-18-2010 07:15 PM by Jonathan | 1 comment »

The first item I have started making for the upcoming auction is a cutting board made of curly maple at the center, with walnut in the middle, and cherry at the outer edge. Here is a picture of the glue-up, using 14-clamps, not all of which are visible here: Here’s another picture, fresh out of the clamps without anything done to the board: There are a few things that will be cleaned up before the board is finished. There is a gouge in the curly maple that you may notic...

Upcoming projects and designs. #7: Thoughts on scrap wood. The Hurricane Ike damaged fence saga continues...

06-18-2010 05:28 PM by dbhost | 9 comments »

Well, the few remaining rot free 2×4s from my old fence that blew down in hurricane Ike have finally been stripped clean and stacked neatly. But what to do with 26 year old sun bleached pressure treated 2×4s? There’s not a straight stick to be found here, and who knows WHAT they used in PT back in the mid 1980s. I HATE to just throw out usable wood, but I also hate the idea of holding on to potentially dangerous junk. So for now, it sits. Most likely to be taken to the curb...

Fly Fishing Rods #5: Redoing the grip

06-18-2010 03:44 PM by Matt Vredenburg | 3 comments »

Well, if you have been following this posting – you’ll noticed that I haven’t posted in a while (months). With a 2 year old and all the other things going on – I had to take a few months off. However, I am back now. After my last posting in December, when found that while reaming out the hole for the rod to fit in the grip—sections of my birch bark veneers separated and the grip was ruined. After discussing with the experts, they assured me that this a very...

Barb's Calico Bean Recipe, with Maple Background.

06-18-2010 03:06 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 24 comments »

This isn’t really woodworking, but there’s some wood involved in the presentation. The other day, a friend of ours requested this recipe of Barb’s Calico Beans. She always made these when we went on a picnic, or potluck dinner. We were really impressed by the request, because the person who asked about the recipe hadn’t been in touch with it for about 20 years, but he still remembered how good it tasted. I added my touch to this , by furnishing the maple...

Tool Musings - Thoughts about tools and working with them. #2: Organizational Discipline

06-18-2010 07:11 AM by David Kirtley | 8 comments »

I am making a small bit of progress toward getting my working tools organized. I look at all the fitted tool cabinets and love how they look but I just can’t see myself working out of one. Come on, how do you work out of something like this? It is beautiful. It is a tool shrine. But seriously, how do you work out of it? I need a chisel. Here, let me take out two saws, get the chisel, put the saws back, work, take the saws out, put stuff back in, put the saws back. You either sp...

Extremely Average #167: Crazy About Woodworking

06-18-2010 05:02 AM by Ecocandle | 1 comment »

Hello LJ, As you know, the last few days I have been distracted by StumbleUpon and writing Winston the Camel stories. Tonight I got back into the shop and bent a piece of wood. This was very exciting for me, as I have been wanting to try it for some time, but I was chicken. It was just a small piece, and only a test. But I had success and it was fun. Brian
