Finishing

1443 days ago by Hisingwooddesign | 9 comments »

What Type of finish do you use? Finishing is a common question among woodworkers. I know for me when I first started finishing it was almost dreadful. I loved to build things but when it came to finishing I almost wanted to leave it bare wood. I built a oak dart board, I guess you could call it a case several years back and when it came time to finish it I ruined it. I applied two many coats two fast and didn’t take the propper steps to apply a quality finish. When it was done I thr...

This week in urban logging #14: Plenty of urban logging, just not much blogging

1445 days ago by Daren Nelson | 17 comments »

So I decided to fix that with a few pictures of what I have been up to. Last weeks load. The pines I am cutting for the guy who dropped off the hardwood in exchange. I saw his logs into framing for his deer cabin and I keep the walnut (many)-catalpa-birch-elm…for myself. One of the catalpa is, well, LARGE. 50” x 8’ I picked the “ugliest” catalpa out first. I love ugly logs. I sawed out some live edge slabs for benches. 2” thick ~24” wide and ...

Yes the saddle is carved from a stump as well as the violin case at the back on the hay bale. If you want more i...
