Hello, I may have a problem. I love buying wood. Today I found some at a garage sale. http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/08/more-lumber/ Brian
Back from 2 nice weeks in greece with the old man. nice view, warm weather, not a drop of rain. was very good :) i brought small block of maple with me, my pen-knife and some inspiration in my head. had to spend a little bit of time doing something productive and not just bask in the sun all day. I can see a lot of you have been very very busy, and I’ll certainly get around to studying it all in more detail soon enough :)... what, who said i was addicted to LJ?... anyway, Thors Hamme...
I finaly got the chance to get this table completed. I didn’t like the way the legs looked, so I decided to add gold leaf to them. Made a big difference. The table looks much better with it. I used an imitation gold leaf, since I had some on hand. It looks good. Thanks for looking. Lee
A couple of nice chisels.A rusty but elegant looking hacksaw.A 16” Delta-Rockwell scroll saw.
I work the wood for a living and that isn’t half bad. Lately though, strange things are happening in my shop and I find myself working with weird materials. Some self analysis revealed a few key questions that need immediate answers from people with more expertise than me. In my short time here, I have seen that we have LJ’s from all walks of life, of all ages, of different backgrounds and countries. So, I want to tap this vast resource for intelligent answers on the following life altering q...
There is something special about wood turning. It is easy to spend hours at this wood craft while working with the various woodturning tools. This particular project features salt and pepper mills of black walnut with a food-safe finish of Tried and True oil varnish. This finish leaves a soft and warm patina with a nice hand rubbed look and feel. The material on hand in the shop happened to be 3/4” black walnut that was left over from another project. In this case the (4) pieces w...
I recently was given a roll of old veneer. It had been wrapped in a large roll & the newspaper used to finish the wrap was dated 1959. It appears to be cherry ( but I am not a wood expert ) and it is about 18 inches wide & varies in length – some is about 10 ft & others are about 12 ft. What would be a good way to flatten sheets for use. I have done some minimal veneer work but most of the veneer I used was already flat. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks.
What’s happening in the shop for August 7, 2010 . Working on a couple queen Alpine “murphy bed”http://www.wwbeds.com/Murphy.htm. One of them will be completed the other will be a pre-cut. This is where I cut the parts, edge band them, dill the holes, and sand them up. The customer will do the actual building. I just give them a head start.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #65: New Musical Instrument Ornaments (With Pictures!!!!)
Well, I started today off with a bang. Literally. I barely had the sleep out of my eyes and a couple of sips of coffee in my body and I began finish sanding the set of ornaments I was working on. I accidentally caught the corner of the sand paper on a holly leaf and it broke off. I went to the freezer to get my cyanoacrylate glue and I had a not so nice surprise. It seemed that yesterday I was pretty hot and pretty busy and I had put a can of Diet Coke in the freezer “just for a m...
