Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots. ThanksGregwww.OregonBurls.com PS Check out my new Website!!!

Rustic Inspired Pen

04-01-2011 04:53 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 10 comments »

The Hobo Rustic Pen. Walking in the woods one day while searching for rodent droppings, I came across a twig that really caught my eye – the left one. Needless to say I had to have it and make something really useful and pathetic to grace my collection of other odd ball projects. I picked it up and ran to my wittle hut (nature was calling) and was relieved holding the twig between my teeth. Well I thought I might make a note of where I found it, the weather conditions, time of day and h...

My wife, Lynn and I have lived here since 1990. We looked for six months before we found this little diamond in the rough. It wasn’t much to look at back then, but as a carpenter, I saw huge potential. The Cape Cod style house was built in 1957, the year I was born and had good strong bones. That’s Lynn with Sammy – our first dog. He was so smart. Look how cute Lynn is! The ½ acre double lot was in the middle of a small suburb by a lake. It was covered with...

Sketchup Mission TV Console / Entertainment Center

03-26-2011 01:30 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I am finally getting proficient with Google Sketchup version 8. Here is my version of a craftsman style TV console. It is halfway done at this point, however the Sketchup program was very helpful in getting the proportions pleasing to the eye. Especially shaping and sizing the corbels. I printed the corbel component, and enlarged them to scale. By simply taping the pattern on my workpiece I was easily able to cut and sand the corbels. Cheers

Arts and Crafts Display Case & Leaded Glass Panels

03-21-2011 12:30 AM by Glen Peterson | 6 comments »

Over the winter I’ve been taking a project class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. We’ve built the Arts and Crafts Display Case that was designed by FW Art Director Mike Pekovich and on the cover of FW in April 2010. Bob Van Dyke, the director of CVSW, taught the class. It was so popular that he had 2 sections of about 10 students each. My case is made of QSWO, but others selected cherry or walnut. The class is over and my case is nearly complete. I sp...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...
