1419 days ago by BlankMan | 6 comments »

Well all the frames are built, eight 2’ x 10’ and four 2’ x 4’. Next step is to stain them all and add the chicken wire fencing. All twelve glued up Here are the four smaller ones stained using a all weather neutral/natural stain. It sure did bring out the red tones in the Western Cedar. I do like how that looks.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #16: With Much Appreciation

1404 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the comments and advice on yesterday’s post. I really do appreciate the different viewpoints that were given and I honestly feel it will help me make better decisions in the future. In the couple of weeks since I started this blog, I have learned so much for everyone I can’t even tell you. I hope in some ways that I have also been giving you some insight into what it is like to work the way I do. I wasn’t sure that it would be...

New to Wood Carving #1: I have never attempted to do wood carving.

1390 days ago by sandhill | 5 comments »

I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on lo...

150,000 BF/day SAWMILL TOUR with pics! NOTES: A lot of interesting stuff on this trip so I’m breaking it up into separate days. If you want to see the high res picture, click on the embedded picture and it will open a new browser window with the full high res version. I managed to get over to Cardin Forest Products today. I drove by Wednesday but the office shuts down at four and I wasn’t sure I wanted to just go strolling up into as busy and big a sawmill operation as these guys...

I was bored

1350 days ago by Flemming | 5 comments »

i’ve been rather restless as of late… maybe its the a.d.d. :P… anyway, as is in the title, i was quite bored and needed something to do. my next project is slowly beginning to take shape in my mind and i’ve settled upon a serving tray with some marquetry and until the “final” plan (plans always change) has been made i wanted to do something small in the meantime. I’ve been absolutely fascinated by the rings i’ve seen on LJ’s, not least ...

Squarerulerbevelangelbandit (yeah right MaFe!) Blog

1311 days ago by mafe | 10 comments »

SquarerulerbevelangelbanditOr just a old English set square and bevel gauge, becoming a transformer! The story is that I bought this wonderful vintage English engineers tool:And of course I had to go crazy on it! So I cut a steel ruler into 8 cm of length, why 8? Because I wanted to be able to make 1:8 dovetails…And since there were a spur, I made a hole, and then it can also go sideways (even I have to count down from 5,5 if I go from the set square). I also gave it some new ...

Extremely Average #284: Half Blind Dovetail Success

1274 days ago by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

Hello All, I felt terrible that I was unable to include a picture in yesterday’s blog. I cut another half blind, for the other side of the drawer and it turned out even better. So though I don’t have my Nikon, I used my iphone to take a photo for tonight’s blog. I also included a new poll widget on my blog. I want your opinion on how much I should charge for my Kindle version of Henry Wood. I will be keeping all the chapters up on the blog, so it will always be ava...

Philippine's Exotic Wood #2: DAO - Argus pheasant tree - Dracontomelon dao

1239 days ago by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

The next exotic wood that I accidentally found in a sash factory was just an offcut from a gian timber. I am pretty sure that this was very old tree that was left hanging around in a lumberyard. This is very hard wood as sometimes mistaken to be the iron wood. I was lucky enough to have it for free. It thought it was just nothing since is all dark and full of mud. When I tried to cut a piece on it so I can make a door handle (knob), I found a nice curves…. DAO – S.Name: D...
