Le Roi est mort

09-03-2007 05:08 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

The king is dead. A few weeks back, while we sure had some fierce gusts of wind, which caused my chess trellis to tip over. And while the (wood only) joinery of my trellis survived the impact with the ground (rocks and/or pottery) the wood itself did not. I found everything still together, save for the King himself. I originally intended to reattach it, but had the quick inspiration… a little poetic je ne sais quoi… some sort of “art (or hidden meaning) is in the e...

Heart Pine and Time....

Good Morning fellow LumberJocks:I had a few moments and thought I’d share a little of my blessings and delimmas with you. I’ll start with the blessing part. Previously, I’ve mentioned the reclaimed lumber from my great grandfather’s store. I’ve got a somewhat large pile of it in my barn that’s been sitting there since the early 70’s. Back then when I was in high school, my parents took it upon themselves to tear it down and bring much of it home...

Making a few tools for the wood lathe #3: Heat treating the tool blanks (for 01 tool steel)

09-02-2007 04:23 PM by Bob #2 | 6 comments »

Well, some disappointment for me this week:After checking some metal heat treating companies here I find that they have (understandably) a $60.00 minimum for processing materials. The sort of leaves us little guys out unless we have a whole batch of tools to do at one time.This has never been my good fortune. So, luckily I had a casting furnace sitting around for years with nobody asking for one so it is now pressed into service as a heat treating unit. Showing here is the furnace with ...

Entertainment Center #10: Things are Better - So Far Anyway!

09-02-2007 05:37 AM by Dano | 3 comments »

No, I haven’t fallen off the planet and yes I have been working on the EC but at a more relaxed tempo. In my last blog entry things were not going well and I decided that I was burned out and trying too hard so I backed up and decided to proceed at a slower pace. I have accomplished the glue up of the carcass, fist the ends and then the rails and floor. All went surprisingly well and I am under a 1/16th of an inch out of square diagonally, very good for me at my level of amateur status! T...

Furniture Restoration #8: Removing applied carvings

09-02-2007 02:37 AM by Paul | 6 comments »

click for larger picture The challenge was to get these applied carvings off intact so I can apply them to the new rail: 1. I sliced the carvings and some of the wood from the old rail off with the bandsaw2. I put a big pot of water on the stove to boil with a fry pan splatter screen on top.3. I set the two carvings on the splatter screen in hopes that I could soften the glue and steam the backer wood off the carvings. After gingerly and patiently sticking a sharp pocket knive b...

This past Friday (August 31, 2007) my daughter, (our Canadian Film Crew, / chauffeur) “volunteered” to drive me to Toronto for a personal tour of Ted & Norah’s new location for their Roarockit business and skateboard school. The first part of the interview is found here First of all, I have to say that the travel gods were with us as the trip took us less than two hours, with no traffic jams. Wow. Anyone who has driven to Toronto knows that this is not a common occu...

That’s why I’m offering an affordable class this winter at our Burly Canoe shop in Duluth, MN. You get your own boat, class instruction, and 5 months of shop space to work on your canoe, all for $1600. Visit for more details. Last winter, a bunch of guys bought tobacco pipes and crank...
