Two weeks ago, on a whim, I got home after work, sliced off a piece of smaller branch from my large pile of smaller Jacaranda branches (~2.5”-3” dia.), and turned a bark-rimmed goblet. Sorry for the gratuitous lighting :) Let’s fly into it… The inside is smooth, and today, 15 days of air-drying on my dining room table later, it still has no checks, even around the pith inside, or on the bottom of the base! Here’s my hand for some b...
I think I mentioned in my last blog that I love hearing/reading/seeing about wood gloats and also logs to lumber blogs. I haven’t done much in the way of blogs but, better late than never. A few weeks ago, me and dad went wood cutting. I usually come along to look out for fallen trees to take home and stick on the lathe. Lucky I went this particular time.there was a tall skinny, and by that I mean about 20m tall by about 250mm diameter, unidentified tree laying over a track. someone ...
Work on the work bench continured this weekend but slowly. The top was originally glued up in 5 sections each being planed before all were glued together. A few pics of the process.Yeah it’s real heavy top alone is close to 200 lbs and 40 board feet of lumberOkay so here’s the kicker. When gluing up the 5 sections it is done face down on the assembly table. Unfortunately when I took the clamps off and flipped it over I big Boo Boo. I had not flipped over the one plank with t...
Hi Guys & Gals I have not been looking much at the LJ site for the last month and a half because I have been mostly bow hunting during my free time. I shot a nice 9 point buck and decided it was time to get back in the shop again. While I was hunting, my new equipment was delivered. I got a Jet 14” Deluxe Pro Band Saw, Jet 17” Drill Press, Jet 12” Planer/Jointer Combo, Jet 1 1/2 HP Shaper, Jet 16-32 Drum Sander, Rigid Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle Sander and a ...
I know it’s been a while, but I am done with my woodworking for the winter, because I finished! All I need to do now is make some tile for the fireplace surround/hearth. (The baseboard molding of the cabinets and mantel is not actually attached yet, I just propped them up for the pic.) The picture is not that great – the finish looks a lot better in person – the mantel pics below show the color better. The mantel was the last part that I needed to do before I could mo...
The only thing that the Mrs. sees when she pokes her head into the shop to see what you’re tracking into the house.
the stained glass shop down-the-street commissioned me to make a couple hundred dollar frame.... the only stipulation for the frame is it is to-be-in-the Art and Crafts Style … wood, design and finish, will all be mine … the buyer doesn’t want to see it, until it is delivered.. ..http://www.beauverre.net/..

Recently I was requested to produce a couple of small tables for our church, not tables you would sit at but small tables to add a vase of flowers to elevate them of the ground 200mm high. This did create a problem because of the size of the various pieces I would require to produce in the construction. I needed to keep Safety as a high priority. The centre column was made up from six pieces of material at an angle of 60 degrees to form a hexagon. The three legs were produced from ma...
