The Evolution of Design #1: The Making of the Rocker Cradle

06-30-2011 02:41 AM by ScottMorrison | 8 comments »

Soon, I will be releasing a documentary on the evolution, history and the making of a Rocker Cradle. Although I’d love to take credit for the original concept, the idea was actually a bit before my time, circa 1700’s. Hope you enjoy the clip…

Playing Around with Carving #5: Fixture to hold work for Relief Carving.

06-29-2011 11:21 PM by WayneC | 14 comments »

I am thinking of making a wooden fixture to hold the work piece when doing relief carving. I am trying to work around several constraints. For example, I really do not have access to the tools and equipment in my shop at the moment, so I am thinking of using common lumber that can be obtained from the local Home Depot or similar big box store. Also moving around the work is a hassel with my broken leg, so I would like to be able to be able to quickly rotate the work piece. This makes m...

"Addicted to Wood"

There is an old song by Robert Palmer with these lyrics: “Your lights are on, but you’re not homeYour mind is not your ownYour heart sweats, your body shakesAnother kiss is what it takes You can’t sleep, you can’t eatThere’s no doubt, you’re in deepYour throat is tight, you can’t breatheAnother kiss is all you need Whoa, you like to think that you’re immune to the stuff, oh yeahIt’s closer to the truth to say you can’t g...

Playing Around with Carving #4: Carving Class

06-27-2011 04:33 AM by WayneC | 22 comments »

Today I took an introduction to relief carving class at the local Woodcraft store. The class was focused on carving an oak leaf and acorns using a piece of Basswood. This was my first experience at relief carving. I am an absolute beginner. I have to say I really enjoyed this and will be setting time aside to carve as much as I can. I would also say I have extreamly happy with the Ashley Iles carving chisels. They arrived sharp, are very substantal and they cut basswood like a hot kn...

Shipping...Why Me?

06-27-2011 03:47 AM by robbinscabin | 22 comments »

As you might know, Hubby and I decided to pool our woodworking talents and start our own business. Being a new teeny, tiny business we decided to use a lot of “free” advertising like brochures, flyers around town, blogs, and Facebook. I have to admit…I was surprised by the results I’ve gotten from both “real world” and online. We’re closing in of 65 Facebook Fans and I’m being stopped in the grocery store to be asked about my latest door. Al...

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

Rogue Fine Living #3: Bed of Power

12-22-2011 10:56 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

In this world of 4gs, Ipads, and Jpegs, we have more power than ever before. Never has it been so easy for an artist to share their work regardless of distance. I can contact a customer hundereds or even thousands of mile away. We can design an original piece via email, and I can have it delivered to their door without the client having to leave the comfort of their home. Wow! Sure beats the heck out to the old days. In Renaissance times, if the King of France wanted you to carve a sculpture...
