The Shows #7: Day 8

02-01-2013 04:19 PM by Monte Pittman | 15 comments »

Is the anticipation from hoping there are big crowds or because it’s almost over? Although we haven’t had banner crowds, I am perfectly satisfied with how my week has gone. I will leave with a comfortable profit and will have learned even more about how to do this. Had to rearrange this morning due to shelf units leaving booth. A guy that does reclaimed lumber work shows with in the summer. He brought in stuff to fill the void. I haven’t talked him into joining LJ’s y...

Bowl Making! - Showing off some of our new toys in action!! #10: Pending arrival ... a 100 year old manzanita trunk!

01-15-2014 11:29 PM by Eric M. Saperstein | 2 comments »

On the right (left trunk shown for scale) is a 100 year old manzanita trunk. These are cut for fire breaks, road maintenance, and other projects so don’t freak out that we killed a 100 year old tree just for us! The trunk is on it’s way from CA and should arrive late this week. We plan to make more manzanita slab bowls from this piece – and perhaps some other artistic turnings. We’ll be offering these pieces once they are completed and properly dried in our 2014 iss...

Lilac Lamp #1: Finding some legs to stand on.

02-05-2007 06:20 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

Quick update after such a long (long) break from this project. As previously blogged elsewhere, the lamp will indeed be made from a single piece of lilac with the lower portion divided into three legs straddling a stone. Took months of on-and-off pondering, and some brainstorming, but now, having worked out the next few challenging steps, I can put the “lamp back on!” Today I took my Dremel to the cracks and splits on one end (after finally deciding which end was up) and...

Baby Furniture #3: Selecting and Preparing Stock

07-02-2008 05:31 AM by Kevin | 10 comments »

We went through and picked out some lumber last weekend. My dad came out and helped me get all of the pieces planed down and cut to rough size. The Sycamore slats are cut to size, the rest is just close. Waiting for final dimensioning to give the wood some time to move if it is going to. Here we are preparing it. Yeah, I know, forgot my safety glasses. I’ve been trying to do better at this now that I have some prescription safety glasses. Here...

Making of a dog #1: Finally have a toddler to make toys for!

11-16-2008 01:18 AM by Betsy | 2 comments »

I’ve always wanted to make things for children. I finally have a toddler to make something for in the family. My nephews came along before I was really into woodworking for fun. So now a small niece is in the picture. This is what I’m making her for Christmas. It looks like a real fun project. They have a little weiner dog so hopefully she’ll like this. I didn’t get much done today – but i...
