chapter 3: "Pine Bark Box" ---by RusticWoodArt

01-15-2007 02:22 AM by frank | 4 comments »

“Pine Bark Box” ....and ’Wood Burgers” Well the next part of the process in this ongoing story of a pine bark box, revolves around getting a bottom all cut and tucked in tight, inside the ‘one piece’ of pine bark. First step was finding a suitable and dry piece of birch wood to use for the bottom of the box. Usually in the summer months while out in the woods, cutting up those trees I have dropped over the ...

Great day

01-15-2007 02:02 AM by Shawn | 5 comments »

Well yesterday, as you can see, I finally got back into my shop. I acomplished alot, and the TV stand I’ve been working on should be ready to go into my new condo February 1 when my wife and I move in. The old adage “wood working isn’t about being perfect, it’s about how well you hide your mistakes” was proving very true. For some reason, my router table decided that it should move the bit higher a few cuts in, thus ‘ruining a couple pieces. So my cabin...

Learning Curve #2: The Learning Curve, Part II

01-15-2007 12:25 AM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

Having put the finishing touches on my latest project (that would be my second project ever) I decided to try and free a woodspirit from a piece of 2×4. The wood had edges of bark still on it, as well as lots of splinters-in-waiting. How to clean this up, I ask myself. I could ask Rick, but he was buy installing a wood vice and I hated to interupt him for the umpteenth time, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. What could I lose? A piece of old 2×4? So, “take a c...

A Beautiful Floor !!

01-14-2007 08:51 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 10 comments »

I want to show everybody how proud I am of the accomplishments of one of my Sons’. He works for a floor installer, & finishing company. He’s there sanding specialist. Especially when it comes to the meticulous areas around stairways, balusters, & radiators. It takes a person with an awful lot of patience, & perseverence. I don’t beleive I have that much patience. He says ”He always enjoys the outcome of his labor” I used to tell my Boy’s as t...

We just received the batch of T shirts we ordered. My wife thought Black would be a nice color. We like them. Our Grandson sure liked his gift. This is what happens when you tell a 12 year old to put a little more smile into it.

I'm learning

01-14-2007 03:22 PM by Dusty | 6 comments »

After I posted the pictures of my Grand Fathers clock with the stained glass face and panels I had several people comment about the stained glass ceiling and other furniture in my library. I realize this is a woodworking site so I didn’t post or write anything about the ceiling. I do use my stained glass in a number of projects – such as my lamps, hutches,and door panels. I have a number of those pieces in my home. I however, for fear of offending or violating the rules of this wo...

Help For Old Guys Like Me

01-14-2007 08:05 AM by Don | 6 comments »

Ever wonder what those abbreviations you read in blogs mean? Well if you didn’t grow up with text messaging, you probably do. I kept reading things like LOL, OTB, and n00b wondering whether the writer was an illiterate. Then I realized I was caught in a paradigm shift without even knowing it. So fret no more here’s a text abbreviation dictionary for old farts like me. PTL

A Tale of Two Boxes

01-14-2007 05:44 AM by Don | 8 comments »

This is an article I wrote for a club newsletter. The two boxes featured are also shown in My Projects. I thought that you might like to read some additional comments on their construction. For those of you not familiar with the metric system, I’ll let you do your own conversion. This first box came about as a result of a friend’s invitation to his birthday bash and his comment, “How about one of those boxes you make?” So here it is – nothing too special. But i...
