Conversion Chart on my website

02-17-2007 03:54 PM by Obi | 1 comment »

Well I got tired of feeling old and unteachable and not being able to grasp the whole centigrade/celsius/ferenheit this to that conversion concept and you can only ask your lumberjock buddies so many times before they start thinking you’re too old of a dog to teach, so I went and found a site that has all the conversions i need (so far) on one chart, and posted it to my webpage. So, if there are any other old dogs that can’t seem to convert one thing to another or back, you can f...

Once again, I have complete the projects that have been in different phases of construction in my shop. Some needing the cut list to be completed, others needing to be assembled, while others are being finished. Once this process is completed, the decision needs to be made. What next? Another table, finish that rocking chair I began building a year ago…search through the hundreds of plans from the internet and magazines that I have compiled over the last six years for something that...

I just wanted to let every one know the itchy, crusty, gunky, sneezy, coughing, spalted wood turner is healed up finally. That was quite an experience, and one I would’nt recommend to anyone. I did realize how much I miss the fortress of solitude. I went out yesterday and made her a pair of matching candle sticks out of some exotic that I have no idea what it is, it came with the lathe when I bought it. Very dark brown with white striations throughout. I think its wenge or paduak some u...

Joining the Fellowship: What this Lumberjocks Stuff is Really About

02-16-2007 07:48 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

Ethan’s latest blog got me to thinking (scary huh?). I started to comment in his blog, then it dawned on me that I should make the comments in my own blog, then it can count on my number of postings. Ha. Could I really be that competitive? Nah, it is just fun. Very good topic he covered. I discovered several years ago that if I wanted to make a living at this journey, I had to make things that others couldn’t, or wouldn’t make, and charge more than they would. I...

"Blessings of Beauty" --by RusticWoodArt

02-16-2007 03:19 PM by frank | 10 comments »

”Blessings of Beauty” ....the perception of beauty is but the rendition of my artistic landscape in harmony with the universe…. To find me this morning and look in to where I am sitting, would be to see one who is unable to tear ones-self away from the view that I find myself in as I look outside. And then there are the thoughts that are landsliding down the scope of this mountain where I am actively trying to maintain a sense of equilibrium before being shipped off to...

My monthly guild meeting...

02-16-2007 07:00 AM by Ethan Sincox | 8 comments »

My local woodworking guild meetings take place on the third Thursday of each month; except in December, so there are only 11 meetings per year. We always have a guest speaker at each meeting. Sometimes that speaker is a fellow guild member and sometimes that speaker is someone from outside the guild, usually a local businessman who is associated to woodworking in some shape or form. Ever since I’ve joined the guild, I’ve only missed a couple meetings, and I’ve never ski...

Events at our cabin! #3: Carving a Bear on a Tamarack Post.

02-16-2007 12:18 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 9 comments »

In the fall of 2005, I built a small deck area between our cabin, & a little multi- purpose toolshed, & Barb’s Library. I had cut down a tall Tamarack tree that was blocking our satellite signal. Being that I hate wasting wood, I built a railing on the deck. Then I decided to carve something, so I chose this Bear. The Tamarack was green so it carved pretty nice. The heart wood was dark, it gave the Bear a nice background. Barb was taking snaps of me carving, so I made this shor...

Rustic Vanity #5: Half Baked Vanity

02-15-2007 10:38 PM by dennis mitchell | 5 comments »

Yesterday was spent spraying finish. I applied a coat of conversion varnish. Then I glazed the alder with a brown glaze. I’ve never tried the glaze with conversion varnish, but was pretty happy they seem to work together. I never know…nothing is as much fun as finishing an entertainment center and having it go all milky after sitting for ten minutes! The fumes are nasty so I enjoyed getting out of the shop to paint my carvings. My wife wasn’t home so I got to use the kitche...
