This is the biggest bowl (size-wise) that I’ve made yet to date. It’s just over 5” deep but it’s just a bit more than 1” wider than that other “bean pot” I turned. This one is layered (top to bottom) with maple, oak, cedar, oak, and maple. Wiped a coat of BLO on it before spraying it with about 6 coats of rattle-can lacquer. Here’s several angles of the finished product. ..... ..AFTER I had glued up the slices of wood, I noticed the bottom ...
Finally after 3 years I do another shop update. Check it out and subscribe for almost daily videos of things going on in the shop, woodworking, blacksmithing, diy, and just general fun. Enjoy!
In this video I am talking about my Naval Officer’s Insignia Box, cut on CNC and the glues I use in my workshop. View on YouTube
Well, I tend not to do things by halves, so I decided to turn my computer failure into an opportunity. I went out and purchased the biggest, fastest, most up-feature computer I could afford. So here I am sitting in my home-office typing a blog with a wireless keyboard, viewing cricket in a small window in the lower left corner of my display in High Def format, and viewing it all on this amazingly bright screen that has already given me a headache. I am getting a stiff neck, because the wi...
Reading a lot about safety today. I’ve managed to lose most my safety glasses. Seems I get a pair every time I buy a new nail gun, so I should have a drawer full somewhere around here. I like those glasses. They sit on my forehead when I’m not using them. I can always find them. They don’t fall off when I bend over. I take good care of them. Always laying them so the lens don’t scratch. I keep them on the dashboard in my truck. Not in a tool box. I know how important t...
Well I don’t know what happen to my other blog, yahoo grabbed it. Anyway I was saying I did’nt know if I was gonna have time to work on the thorsten table because of my back and I’ve been cleaning my shop (gasp)! For you new guys, a while ago, I won the messiest shop contest, well it was an informal contest, no one dared to go up against me. Although there were a couple of close seconds, really close. Been at it for a week now and got about a week to go. Thing is I keep f...
No, we didn’t build a box, or a table but we did finally get to our shed to organize it. Sunday afternoon we hauled out all of the “oh just put it in the shed” stuff (which was stuffed in there so tightly you couldn’t get all the way in the door and you had to pry the stuff out). After the contents were out of the shed we were able to celebrate our creation once again. We had built the shed a year ago so that we could put the contents of the basement into it while w...
Steam a banana in a vegetable steamer in it’s peel. Mine broke open when it was cooked. I then the took banana pulp out of peel and mashed and buttered it and added salt. It is pretty good. If anyone tries this and comes up with a tasty topping let me know. I have to rotate foods I eat so I don’t expect to get a lot of banana recipes in a string. Diane
There’s a quote, something to the effect of “I’m so far behind I’ll never die”... If that’s true, and we need to finish everything we start, I’ve come quite far in my quest for immortality. Why is it that I never seem to get anything done? Could it be the 60+ hour weeks? Trying desperately to cram projects, familytime and relaxation (you know, naps) into every weekend. Could it be jockeying for computertime, attempting to maintain three other blogs...
I’m so excited, Karson is on the way to see me on Friday. He left Delware Tuesday, and is in Kansas City now. He called today to work out the logistics. We had hoped that Joshua Stewart could come along for the trip, but his wife is due to have a baby today, so I think he is out, although I don’t understand his priorities ( just kidding Joshua). Kev is planning to drive up from Wichita. So, with “wife” here, me, Karson, and Kev, there will be at least 4 lumberjock...
