Alvarado Lumberjocks!

05-29-2009 09:59 PM by Jay Neale III | 3 comments »

Well, my fellow Alvaradotian (Alvaradoite?), Tim Marko, just dropped by a couple of hours ago. He’s probably not even home yet and I’m posting about it. Tim’s a nice guy and some of the projects he brought over to show me are just wonderful. I should have taken photos of those! Anyway, I showed him around my shop, my office, showed off lots of candle holders and wine rests, and we talked a lot about where to buy wood in this area. He seems to know a lot more about buyi...

Adventures in Trace Fork #5: Any professional botanists in the crowd?

05-29-2009 07:27 PM by Tony | 3 comments »

In a recent blog entry, I stated I was about 95% sure a tree I came across was Cucumbertree (Magnolia acuminata). Well I’m now 100% certain…that I was wrong. After further study, I am now certain that it is NOT Cucumbertree. So, the photos go back into my digital library of unknown specimens. Tomorrow morning, I head back into the wet forests for further study. The learning curve continues, and I am having so much fun!

Ronin Woodworking #2: Start cutting wood

05-29-2009 03:54 PM by spaids | 5 comments »

Weekend three: (pause for dramatic effect….) Wood gets cut! There up on the top shelf is an old walnut board a friend gave me. Its just been waiting around to be useful someday.There is also some oak on there that had a project assigned to it when I bought it. I might use some of it for this. The drawer sides and back are going to be oak. You can see some hardwood floor scraps on the bottom right shelf. I might just make the drawer parts from that. Its a very shallow drawer (sh...

Just for fun I thought I would upload some progressive photos of a project I am working on at the moment. Anyone want to guess what it is going to be?? (The toy truck is not part of it, just a fix it job I haven’t got to yet). I will try to get a better photo tomorrow. There will be more parts to this project and as I make them I will add photos. Glue up will happen when all the bits are finished. Have fun. By the way, the dovetail joint on this project is the first do...

Checkerboard End Grain Cutting Board #1: Skecthup Model....ya, you heard me right...of a cutting board

05-29-2009 05:11 AM by Brad_Nailor | 9 comments »

I know what your thinking…this lunatic made a Sketchup model of a cutting board? Can’t he just wing it? Ya sure, I have made quite a few cutting boards with and without plans. The few I have done plans for were in Autodcad, to work out the design details, but this is the first time I have used SU for planning a cutting board. I wanted to be able to know exactly how much material I was going to need, and how it was going to have to be glued up so it would come out exactly as I want...
