Death of a forest giant

04-06-2010 07:00 AM by timrowledge | 9 comments »

We had some nasty spring storms last week on Vancouver Island and around Vancouver generally. Winds were reported at around 145 klicks (that’s around 90mph for you folks in Yanquistan) and a lot of trees fell. Power outages hit a lot of people including us. One of the casualties locally was this huge Douglas Fir in the Little Qualicum River Falls provincial park. Just a couple of days before we had walked past it and admired the sheer scale of the monster. Yesterday we walked the par...

Drum making #3: Poplar Snare Drum

04-06-2010 06:23 AM by skeeter | 1 comment »

Took the shell to work. Reason? Don’t own a lathe. So i turned it on a big metal engine lathe. I had to clamp it very loose because the 3 jaw chuck was distorting the shape. If I ever make these things for real, I will make a jig to hold the shape.

Drafting Desk #1: Drafting Desk part 2

04-06-2010 04:01 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 0 comments »

Last week I talked about the drafting desk that I am currently working on. I have made a lot of progress and now have all of the parts made and partially put together. Over the weekend my wife and I went up to North Carolina to spend Easter with our families. I took the opportunity to work in my fathers shop a little. If any of you read my blog “Old School v. New School” I spoke about how I grew up working in his shop but now have adapted my style around the space I have available at home...

It's gonna be....a boy!

04-06-2010 02:14 AM by ScottMorrison | 16 comments »

Well, this is sort of woodworking related… My wife and I went to the hospital with my son and his pregnant wife for a routine sonogram, and found out that my grandchild will be a boy! WoHoo! Looks like another Morrison woodworker is in the making. As if I needed another reason for a glass of single malt and a cigar. Life is good…

Red Oak adventure

04-05-2010 10:54 PM by sw_iowa_sawyer | 7 comments »

I am not sure anyone even reads these things but I thought I would post another one for those that like this kind of thing. I have been looking for some red oak logs for quite a while and have been unable to find any.I finally have found some with the help of a friend. The owners are having some timber work done and have allowed me to get a couple blow downs. They have been down for a year or maybe two but still should produce some good lumber. I pulled 7 logs from the timber with the help...

My Hand Tool Journey #8: It Works!

04-05-2010 10:30 PM by Kent Shepherd | 15 comments »

I worked on the iron on my “patron” plane. There was considerable rust and pitting, but I got it working pretty well. I will spend some more time later on the back. I ran out of time for now. The sole was not dead flat. I ran it over my jointer to flatten it . That worked well. As you can see, it does a good job jointing wood.I’ve never used a plane this big before so it was somewhat ackward at first. I got the feel fairly quickly and began to have some fun. I didn’...
