There's A Table in There Somewhere! #3: Basic Design & Milling the Aprons

04-07-2009 04:27 AM by CedarFreakCarl | 5 comments »

Here’s the basic design that I’m using on the harvest table. I probably should have put this in the first part of this blog, but better late than never. This table will be a classic Shaker design. All mortise and tenon joinery and finished with Waterlox.I milled some more stock tonight. All I got accomplished tonight was the base stock for the end aprons. But in the process, I found what I call the “real deal” heart pine. Generally, you can judge how “old grow...

Well since last post we attached massive reclaimed 2×6 supports to handle the axle. The axle (3/8” piping) is recieved by the floor flange on each side of the flywheel. The crank arm is then assembled as shown in the pics. We then constructed a pedal from scrap 2×4’s and some plywood and secured it to the frame by metal piping to allow it to pivot freely.After assembling the wheel/ crank and pedal system we got er spinning pretty good. Somewhere in the range of 2-3 revol...

Bad News Today!

04-07-2009 01:42 AM by jockmike2 | 78 comments »

I received some bad news from my Dr. today concerning my cancer. He said I still have it in the capsule of my prostate. That it went from seven to nine. The test that determines the cancer in your body. The good news was that they had got it out of my lymph nodes and fatty tissue around my prostate. But that it had penetrated the capsule around my prostate. So he called me after I got home and told me he had talked to the pathologist and they had decided to agressively go after the cancer wit...

Adventures in Trace Fork #2: Interesting Trees

04-07-2009 12:43 AM by Tony | 4 comments »

I always carry a camera with me in the woods, and have seen a lot of interesting things, like this massive fallen Red Oak. I was actually standing on this thing while I took the photo: At the spot where the trail from my mom’s property enters the park, this beast has fallen. My measly 16” chain saw would be no match for this monster: Lots of lightning hits. This one is all the way down on the canyon floor: (Every time I pass a big Beech, I wonder if there is a...

This is a finished hand carved walnut frame that I did.

04-06-2009 09:55 PM by woodchic | 23 comments »

Tihis is a walnut frame that I carved for one of my scetches. I only began to scetch three years ago…......I did a series of drawings from the older works of photographers of the American Indians back from the late 1800’s. This was my third scetch. I carved the inside of the frame by hand. It is two frames put together. the outer frame I cut the curves out on a band saw.

04-06-2009 09:14 PM by wdkits1 | 1 comment »

Before I start the inlay work I have to make the frame so these are the steps required for this process. My walnut frame stock has been sized to the inside perimeter of the pattern. In this photo I have set the router to make a 1/4” groove 1/4”deep,1/8” from the back to accept the backboard.[ 1/4” luan plywood ] In this next photo I have set the router to make a 1/4” groove 1/8” deep in the center of the frame face. This next photo shows the frame dry...
