Cool Wood Finds #1: Found this Wood "Formation". Anybody got any ideas?

10-09-2008 04:38 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 15 comments »

I found this “formation” on some Southern Red Oak that I am using to build the conference table for a church. Anybody seen one of these? This was found on the part of the wood that looks like it was once an outside part of the tree and either the tree grew around it or it was deep in the crotch. The side of it didn’t give any clues to what was inside and only when the bark fell off did it revel itself. Here is a photo of the complete board… Here is a zoomed up...

Wood Mentation of Today ....what is this prise that burns within my being,to find the almost of what a-waits-a-round the next bend,by now i should have learned why the sweetness of your voice calls,as within the depths of where i have often run to hide from your face…. ....i once remember standing in the shadow of a tree greater than i,while the limbs of your covering shared with my-self a notion of leaves,fire colored leaves you gave to me to light the candle that had gone ou...

The Chronicles of Moby Plank #3: A Leg to Stand On

10-09-2008 04:21 AM by Texasgaloot | 3 comments »

It’s about time I attack this project with a vengeance, if for no other reason that it will be good to have the commission money to travel to Berea on (Neener!) The most challenging part of a very challenging project has been finding mesquite in quantity and size to work for me. Each leg is 4-1/2” on the square, a modified cabriole leg. I finally scored the lumber about 4 weeks ago, about an hour away. Heck, in Texas, that’s neighbors. Here is the stack: I didn&#...

Changing Table #4: Door & Drawer Fronts

10-09-2008 03:25 AM by Les Hastings | 2 comments »

I finally got all the fronts put together. The drawer fronts have wider side styles to match the styles and rails on the door. All of the have raised panels except fot the one small drawer front at the top of the tower. Its to small for a raised panel so I just made it a flat panel. The panels have a bead running around them to, to go along with the beaded openings. Here’s a close up of the frame and panel. Here’s a couple full view pictures of the project. Al...

The Craftsman's Path #47: THree Pillars of Design - Part 2 Construction

10-09-2008 03:19 AM by Mark Mazzo | 0 comments »

Building on the previous post in this series, it’s time to explore Graham Blackburn’s second pillar of design: Construction. When one thinks of construction in woodworking, the first thought is inevitably joinery. While joinery is definitely one element of the construction of a piece of furniture, as you might expect, there’s more to the equation. Take a look at this post for a discussion of construction as it relates to design, according the Blackburn. Thanks for reading.

like fingernails on a blackboard...

10-08-2008 08:20 PM by StevenAntonucci | 23 comments »

As someone who has been working with wood for 20 years and turning for 12 years, there are a few things that set me off. I’m going to jump up on my soapbox now: 1.) “What lathe is the best?” “What angle is that sharpened to?” “What tools are the best?” “What chuck…” AAAAAAARGH! The answer to all of these questions is “It doesn’t matter.” I think far too many folks are concerned with the brand name, whet...

New (used) Delta Table Saw #2: Here it gotta clean it up.

10-08-2008 05:57 PM by woodchips | 7 comments »

Well I was finally able to go pick the saw up and I’m every bit as excited as I was when I first bought it. I’m going to be doing a bit of work on it before using it. I need to rebuild the right wing extension and I’m going to build a router table into it. I also need to give it a good cleaning inside and lube it with some sort of dry lube (any suggestions?). The cast iron surface has some very minor rust spots that will need to be removed, what would be the best way t...
