Why one color on panels?

01-30-2007 05:48 PM by Cathy Krumrei | 7 comments »

I have been thinking of ways to finish off my panel. I think I have chosen to go with oil paint mixed with linseed oil to get the right color then thin it out with thinnner. The leaves I want fall colors to enhance the theme of the deers fighting. (this is all in my head idea) Then I want the background like a fog. I’m a hunter so kind of trying to get a hunters point of view going. I have been looking at other wall carvings and all I see is one color stain. I do have a problem when it ...

perfection vs realistic.... the constant struggle in woodworking for me

01-30-2007 04:39 AM by Dusty | 10 comments »

When I first started woodworking –It was very hard for me to finish any projects because I was such a perfectionist. Nothing was ever good enough. This lead too many hours of frustration and self doubts. I had to find a balance between being fussy or putting out a quality project and accepting that enough was enough.

Hands Free.....

01-29-2007 07:49 PM by Philip Edwards | 13 comments »

Hi Folks I’ve been reading a great book by Graham Blackburn entitled “Traditional Woodworking Handtools”. It is a pretty good read, and for me that is important. A lot of woodworking books are full of pretty pictures but the text side of things is a little light. Sometimes there just isn’t anything of substance at all. And I do like to read….. This book is all about the tools in a traditional (read “before electricity”!) cabinetmakers tool chest...

Hi FolksWell, with the workshop looking so inviting I couldn’t help myself. Yes, I’ve started work on a new table design. Dug out all the 2 inch black walnut I had and got planing and thicknessing. And my, what did I find?Sapwood. LOTS of sap…..Now is this right?? When you Guys buy walnut do you expect it to be two thirds sapwood? I appreciate the walnut tree isn’t grown for timber and that it doesn’t grow to be a huge, straight tree. But come on, this is expensi...
