Ribbon Butterfly for Blood Cancer

03-22-2013 01:49 PM by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

My newest project is of a ribbon butterfly for blood cancer research. I was contacted the other day by a wonderful lady named Jeanne who let me know that she was working with an organization called Team in Training that raises money for cancer research. She contacted me to ask if I would be willing to donate a piece to help raise funds for this cause. I was very honored that I was asked and I am excited that I could do something to help. I went online and looked into this great organization a...

As soon as I can gain access to a wood shop, I will do some touch-up work and finish polishing it. I have come a long way, but it is far from complete. Here is what I have so far… created in just over 2 semester...

Cabinet Progress #17: Hiding the disaster

I finally got around to dealing with this mess. (I just noticed that I posted the last post for this project 385 days ago!)Kristin is patient, but she has been asking me to stain and install the doors. I had some fitting to do, along with a week or so of staining/ finishing before install time. (not to mention dropping/breaking/rebuilding/ one door).Installing the Z-braces on the inside of the doors. First to install a door stop for the doors to close against. If I could do it all over I woul...

"Chigiritsugi used in Wood Joinery" --by RusticWoodArt

06-14-2007 02:37 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Chigiritsugi used in Wood Joinery ....’chigiritsugi’ is the eastern Japanese name, while here in the west we prefer; ‘spline’, ‘flying dutchman’ and ‘butterfly’ joint….and then also I may have missed or forgotten a name. While starting out here I will just insert an observation that I have used and noted over time in the study of western and eastern thought in woodworking and ‘wood joinery’. Understanding wood goes a ...
