Tip of the day! Use a push stick!

01-17-2013 02:59 PM by OregonBurls | 32 comments »

THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too. Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick! Lets say it all together now! Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick!Keep your tools sharp and ...

"Carving a Tree Spirit" #3: Cottonwood Bark

12-30-2011 06:03 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

First, you need some bark! You can buy cottonwood bark by the pound and get some really great wood, that is much thicker and wider than what I found in my neighborhood. Or, you may find your own, if you live further north than I do! Look for a tree with thick ragged bark, or the cotton-like flowers(?) when it blooms. Look for dry bark that has fallen off or a tree that is dead. I collected several garbage bags full from a tree that was struck by lightning. I washed mine and scrubbed with a ny...

"Automaton" #7: What's inside

01-21-2012 12:13 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

You not only get to play with the toy when assembled, it’s also a puzzle! After testing, I have it completely dismantled to do some finish sanding and painting. I stopped counting parts and pieces after one hundred, but it is important to be able to be able to make adjustments and repairs if needed. So I though I would post a few pictures of the inner workings, that might help if someone might like to do something similar. The important part of the man, as far as how he dances, a...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

11-11-2010 03:46 PM by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...

"Automaton" #4: Staging & Mechanics

01-14-2012 05:33 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

I’ve been working on the mechanical parts of the toy this week. I built a 10” x 10” box with mitered corners out of oak. The back drop and other pieces are out of poplar and the stage is 1/4” birch. I used 3/4” birch plywood for the gears and collars and cams with dowels for the different rods and pistons. The back drop will be doweled and glued in place, and I am trying to decide if I want to put the title up there or down on the oak. All the other pi...
