Taliesin Desk in Cherry #2: Marking and mortising

09-10-2015 11:57 PM by JimYoung | 4 comments »

Continuing on with my desk project… I milled all of the lumber roughly to size. I left everything a little oversized in case any internal stress warped the boards. Also, my planer blades were shot and leaving raised lines. For now I’m sticking with the HSS blades and got two sets on Amazon for a decent price. The new blades cut like butter. After a few days, I dimensioned all the parts for the legs and all the end pieces. Next, I marked all of the mortise locations. I ...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #1: Getting started

09-06-2015 04:33 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’ve been working my way up to this project over the last few years. I have an old “80’s oak” desk in my home office and while it is fine, the style is out of date. When I started in woodworking, my hope was to learn enough and hone my skills to be able to replace my desk some day. I can across this design by Kevin Rodel on the Fine Woodworking site, but there was not much information on it just a few photos. I came across a free plan from Mr. Rodel (FWW July/Aug...

One of a kind, most unique tree on earth, Fish Slab cedar

08-22-2015 11:39 PM by EdgeGrainOnly | 2 comments »

I’ve been living in the natural world of Rivers Inlet, British Columbia my whole life and I’ve never found anything that astounded me more than this. As a beachcomber, when I find a slide it’s a perfect treasure for me to sift through but what I found the day I came across this slide, completely blew my mind. At first sight, the log was a beautiful old growth red cedar – already a gem in itself. But once I started milling, the unique treasure I discovered within ...
