And a very positive I.D. as well! Daren Nelson, from Central Illinois…................................. Come on Down! You are the winner of the “Name That Wood Species” Contest. And the crowd goes wild! Daren was the VERY first person in with a guess: “The smell throws me off…Looking at it I would say almost 100% positive mulberry…but is has a sweet smell (to me anyway)” I went back today with my trailer in tow and grabbed six more decent section...

Woodturning in Romania #1: The Idea

08-16-2011 03:55 PM by Ovidiu | 9 comments »

Hello everyone I hope someone have the patience to read this series and not be bored then. Typically, the brilliant ideas are born by chance. Because I’m not a special case, the idea came to me accidentally, looking on the internet ( at the request of a friend) some electric engraving tool. That was in March. There was a period of documentation on woodturning, these activities so appreciated in countries such as America, Canada, the United Kingdom etc. I read many sites, forums, blogs, ...

My Day in the Shop

08-31-2011 10:08 PM by alfa189 | 9 comments »

Wife and kids gone ALL DAY. I look forward to a beautiful day tinkering in the shop. But what to do, you ask? TURN PENS!! But before I do that, I want to build a quick little Band Saw sled (mostly to cut pen blanks quickly and accurately). Shouldn’t take but maybe 20-30 minutes, right? RIIIIIIIGHT. Looks like my son dove into my plywood pile and used every available piece as a shield, sword, bike ramp, whatever. Thus, all are dinged up. A little wood putty will fix it. Where ...

Where does lumber come from? #2: More information - and pictures - on the Amazon trip

10-31-2011 10:06 PM by dbkmd | 1 comment »

I was thinking today (no, not more sanding this time, just thinking) about the project I suggested last week to go to see the processes involved in bringing our exotic hardwoods from the Amazon forests to our workbenches. It occurred to me that some of you may be interested in seeing some of the pictures that I took this summer. They might make it a bit easier to actually visualize what I was talking about. First, though, you may recall that I mentioned that there were snakes and insects i...

Fantasy Football Trophy a la Lombardi #3: The Game Saver

11-16-2011 03:05 AM by chrisstef | 4 comments »

6 weeks left of the fantasy football season and its looks like im out of the playoffs. Barring a miracle ill be watching from the sidelines. If you’ve followed my last posts i took a chunk of fallen maple and, by hand, drawknived, planed, shaved, and shaped that log into a football. Well then i ran into a problem … my freshly fallen log had started to crack, check, and split. Then, coming in off the bench, the LJ faithful 34,000 strong, bail me out of another problem. We...

Is this chair something special?

01-24-2012 09:34 PM by Don Butler | 9 comments »

I got this chair from a client who said it’s been in his attic for as long as he can remember. A couple of weeks ago I posted a question about what wood species it might be. The majority thought it might be mahogany.So, now I wonder about the chair’s origin and worth.It has some indications of being handmade. There is no makers mark, no numbers or old tags. I believe it was heavily upholstered in a style we used to call overstuffed.I’m pretty sure the seat was originally equ...
