Great job with the poster, Martin!! Well done At the show, Ryan Shervill (who is pictured on the home page for the show, stacking wood) w...
Resplendence of Wood ....oh the beauty of a sky filled with wood, where meeting together on my plane of vision, i re-tell the art of having made more then meets the eye, this is the respect i give as i give you wood…. —-where is the time that passes while living with wood, what is this moment i behold within my head, why stop and stare since this moment is all-ready past, how much pause can my heart infill with the desire of wood…. ....my likening is found as wr...

But I’d like to record what I did somewhere,hoping It would be helpful for my memory and next chance to make some beds. Enjoy yourself.See you.
Well this winter has been pretty eventless out in the shop. All my tools out there just sitting idle, while the mess on the workbench grows taller and more diverse. Lately my only reason for going into the garage/shop are to grab a screwdriver or get the drill to hang shelves or what have you inside the house. The job and the family have kept me busy lately. You know, I think it would help in the winter if the shop were properly heated. I have considered having a gas line run out there...

This is a piano bench from my church that has clearly seen better days. I’m going to try to put it back together and also make it stronger than it was before because I can see it has already been repaired once. I started with pulling apart as much would come. Some of that you can see in the first picture and here it is the rest of the way. I need a little advice on this. First, I think the bottom piece is just supposed to float and not be glued in. It was glued in in...
Not a full blown entry, more of a followup to part 2 but here is the night stand with 3 coats of waterlox original and 1 coat of a 75/25 mix waterlox satin/original. I knocked off the nibs after the first 3 coats with 0000 steel wool….. I’ve also included a pic of the Solar Lux for Chico. One word of warning though. If you really want a true black piece with no thin spots etc and have a few (?!) extra bucks, use Speedball india ink for this treatment. I only used the Solar Lux ...
Things are finally coming together in my new place. I moved to my new house three weeks ago and had been working hard to get to the point where I can start on my workshop. Here’s the result of last night’s work. Fresh paint went on the walls after I removed the existing shelving nailed onto the walls twenty years ago. This color is the result of me mixing all the paint the previous owner had left behind into a 5 gallon bucket. Luckily my wife is happy with this color, she likes happy sha...
My sister-in-law loves birds and has several lovebirds. After visiting a relative in a nursing home recently she came home raving about the beautiful aviaries they had at the facility. Well, she is set to graduate from her PhD program soon and I thought that this would make a lovely gift. I have gotten started on the bottom case and discovered that I wanted to share this so I apologize that that part is not documented. In keeping with The Wood Whisperer’s recent “design on t...
