Tale of the Olive Wood Rolling Pin #1: The Beginning

07-06-2012 12:02 AM by Dabilene | 2 comments »

Last year I started turning pens. I have really enjoyed being able to take a project from start to finish in 45 minutes (or so). A few friends have asked me to make pens for them with “sentimental” pieces of wood – an old tree that fell on their property, etc. One of my partners was going on a trip to Greece last month. Before leaving he asked me about making him a pen out of a piece of olive wood that he picked up while he was there. I gladly agreed and told him that...

holiday show #2: today

11-11-2012 03:11 PM by Monte Pittman | 4 comments »

Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #5: Corbels, Arc, Mortises & First Dry Fit

Cut it out roughly on the bandsaw, and smoothed it out with sandpaper. Th...
