Alligator Juniper and mesquite Burl

11-03-2011 10:01 PM by Mesquiteman | 2 comments »

Here are some of the latest slabs that have come off the mill. I have been trying to get as much juniper as possible lately because it seems to be fairly popular around here. The color and grain make it perfect for rustic cabins or southwest furniture. It is also a lot easier to mill then mesquite. I also attached a slab of the mesquite burl that I came across. If anybody is ever around tucson,az or payson,az give me a call I have slabs in both areas. 520-444-1225

Mallets Made in Mexico

01-14-2012 04:44 AM by Omegacool | 3 comments »

Para golpear mis formones utilizo desde un simple pedazo de madera, martillo, mazo de metal o de hule, pero ahora comencé a hacer un mazo de madera de una pagina de planos gratuitos, y tenia la idea de hacer tambien un pequeño mazo de talla. Caminando por el mercado encontre un puesto de artesanias y tenian unos apachurradores y dije “es igualito” entonces los compre. Me falta terminar el mazo grande y darle un acabado a los pequeños.

Wood gloat, countryside style

02-07-2012 09:30 PM by Sodabowski | 5 comments »

Hey guys! I don’t remember if I told you peeps about this one. Last summer I took home the biggest left chunk of a very old plum tree we used to play at when kids in my village, the new owner of the land having decided that it was too “tired” and had to go, he cut it down five years ago. I had taken home several big branches, which have wonderful color zones, but that big crotch sitting in the open was crying at me. So last summer I set up a night mission and brought it h...

refurbishing old tools #14: An old stick n rabbet

03-13-2012 11:04 PM by Dave | 26 comments »

Here is an old plane that BoxCarMarty helped me find. It seems that the British used a whole bunch of planes to make a window sash. The Americans invented a version to cut the inner and outer groves at the same time.The outer is called the stick because of the sticking board used to make it. The inner grove is a rabbet that the glass would be set in then glazed. My wife has been on me to get her a few old windows so she could put pictures in them and hang em on the wall. Well being the cheaps...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #651: Attitude is Everything

03-25-2012 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

So many times when we have something to do, the attitude in which we approach it can really affect the whole process. In looking ahead to the job of creating 300 pattern kits that I have in front of me, to some it may seem like a massive chore. I understand and respect that, because I realize that all people don’t have the passion in their hearts that I do regarding woodworking and my job. While production work may seem mundane to some, to me it has its virtues. I look at the tas...

Building My Kids' Playhouse #7: Got it Painted (in a very manly color)

04-07-2012 01:23 AM by Andy Panko | 5 comments »

Our four year-old daughter picked the color. It definitely adds a pop of color to our yard, if nothing else… Final step is to paper and shingle the roof. It will be the first time I ever did roofing. Should be fun.

the son's bookshelf #1: the dry fit

04-21-2012 03:34 AM by jacob34 | 1 comment »

I was getting ready to start a project for my daughter when I walked into my son’s room seeing what is best described as an explosion of collected boy stuff, models, books and misc stuff that I have no idea why he has kept. So I am building this shelf to help contain the mess and calm the wife. I is 4’ tall 2’ wide and 1’ deep with 2 shelves the last 2’ do not have a shelf so he can keep a tote there. Hopefully that can lead to a box project.
