Handmade Portraits #5: Handmade Portraits: Jason Tennant

08-20-2010 09:30 PM by Etsy | 5 comments »

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see Nature at all. But, to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself.” — William Blake, Letter to the Reverend John Trusler, August 23, 1799 Jason Tennant is grounded. He is rooted in his place with strength and dignity, not so distinct from the trees surrounding him. Before ...

My Journey #1: Quest for "Flat"

09-15-2010 05:10 AM by Trimble | 2 comments »

So, I’m just starting to learn woodworking. I’ve wanted to learn woodworking since I was much younger… The thought of building my own computer desk someday has secretly lingered in the back of my mind for many years. Recently, I was given the task of building shelving for a storage building to store most of my stuff (I share a house with my in-laws… ick). For fathers day, my wife bought me a cheap Ryobi router table from Home Depot. I’ve always wanted a ro...

Mineral Oil, Tung Oil or Walnut Oil on Cutting Boards (and other things)

10-22-2010 08:51 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 15 comments »

Setting up new shop #3: Fixing Walls, painting, and organizing.

11-15-2010 06:02 AM by WoodenSoldier | 2 comments »

Still working slowly on getting the shop in shape and determined to do it cheaply since I’m renting. I have been getting a good supply of plywood at work when we throw it out so I’ve been able to reuse a lot of materials. I found an 8×4 sheet of ply with one side coated with white plastic which has been great. I’ve been using that to fill in the gaps above the block walls. Its great stuff because its already white and it wipes clean so easily. Also today I ma...
