My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...
when the slices come of from the log, the bark is being cut of in the process of edging. The bark is not in a straight line however on the lsice so for optimized output (as many boards from a log) this process is very important and should only be done by expereinced employees. They more or less calculate what kind of boards may come out (1×6” wide and 1×4” wide or 1×6” wide and 1×3” wide) and production is either good or with a poor yield. This edgi...
Hello !I’ll be cutting down my 25 year old Wisteria real soon and I’m not really sure what the best way to dry it before using it. In the garage, outside under my covered shed or in the basement in the heating room? There is a lot of wood for several walking sticks and the main trunk is approximately 4ft long and 5” to 6a” thick. Should I take the bark off before drying or after ? I hope someone ca help me. Thank you, Ken

Just a quick note. I found some logs (again!) and quickly sliced up a half log for the turning. It had some loose bark I tore off, but also some seemingly strongly-affixed pieces that I decided to leave on. Too hard to remove. I was only at around 1000RPM (2nd out of about 6 speed settings on my Jet 12×20), when wHaCk! A piece of heavy, hard bark about 3”x5”, and around 3/16” thick smacked me really hard in the face. I was wearing a polycarbonate full-face shield fro...
Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...
Stone and Wood ....study deep and go within, for in these inwards of stone and wood, beats the heart of my love’s in-flame, where naught but wight’s such as i can go for peace-full respite…. —-sing forth the study of my soul, i go a caroling within the depths of these here woods, while none there is that crosses my path as fair weathered fiend, but the arrow that flees to it’s point of yonder destiny…. —-why sitting here just now in mornings ...
Been Workin’ at Wood ....and so I have,and so I yet will be,and so I just can’t get enough,of that thing called workin’ wood! Well just some photos here of what’s going on around here at the moment, as I’m preparing for the best of winter. One of the opportunities that is presented to me up here, as I go through the seasons, is the ongoing adjustment to the need of change. And so I have been busy, and then more then a little busy at getting wood in and spli...
Live in the woods….Wood Art Well here we go….while out last Saturday working in the woods, I happened to be down in a place that does not get into my normal forest travels. I was down in this area last fall cutting trees for this winter’s burning and happened to be down here not long ago looking at some trees that had recently fallen, due to storm winds. Last Saturday was spent cleaning those trees up and while on a break that morning, I decided to waunder around. Foun...
Folk-Wood-Tales ....deserted and hard pressed, peeled back from weathered exposure, i often think back to younger days, when those that passed me by gave thanks…. —-my scar is deep that runs within my trunk, and this i received at the hands of an-other, scars and wounds are but battle purging follies, while i am left to bear a showing of what re-mains…. —-tis better that i bear my pain of shame, in the silence of these forgotten woods, since when will come tho...
