Baking Soda and Vinegar bottle rocket launcher

05-30-2010 11:56 PM by Dan Lyke | 14 comments »

The 3rd grade boy across the street is pretty smart, and his mom is doing her best to make sure he’s got some pretty broad horizons (He goes to a Waldorf inspired charter school, I went to a Waldorf school through 7th grade, so we’ve got some similar background). Anyway, he and his mom came over to ask if I had some scrap wood for some raised planters, then he found an inner tube we’d cut up for some project, and started playing with the valve, and that led to us launchin...

07-13-2010 12:14 AM by dakremer | 10 comments »

Hey everyone. I was on one of the design sites that I frequently visit and saw this cool article. Its all about modern ways to join wood (furniture applications). Anyways I have the link below.

The site as a whole is also very cool, especially if you are into the designing and building of modern/unique furniture. (also if you do click...

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 »

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 »

What are the differences between the three oils? Mineral oil is the cheapest. Tung and walnut are priced about the same and both can cause alergic reactions to those that are alergic to nuts.

As advertised, walnut oil will provide a hardened surface after being exposed to UVs. Mineral oil will need additional coats as it drys out. Tung o...
