It’s that time of year once again. The 2nd Annual Whirligig Wars event is approaching! Woodworkers around the globe are beginning to construct their whimsical whirligigs with the hope of winning one of the great prizes this year.

Due to it’s success Whirligig Wars has gained recognition from woodworkers and woodworking enthusiasts across the globe. In the Summer...
I got started attaching the base to the top last night. Only got about halfway through it because it was late and I didn’t want to rush through it and mess something up. But so far so good. This is mostly a short picture post but you should have an idea of what is going on here.. Once more flip and rotate the top.. Then measure out the side stretcher by the leg vise for clearance of the chain bracket.. Then got everything drilled and ready for drawboring...
We are finally at the sanding and polishing stage. We shand with 180 to 220 on the darker wood and 220 – 400 on the lighter wood. We will then take it outside where the light is perfect and make sure that we have all the scratches out of it. The colors look dull but once we spray it they will stand out.

Also, video blog is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEzqKl-QOwA&feature=youtu.be I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...

As some of you know, I got my sawmill running,http://lumberjocks.com/projects/19484.Now I need to sell a little bit of the red cedar I have sawed so far. Mostly 4/4 and a little 8/4. This was sawed from logs that have been cut for a few years so it’s pretty much dry now.The problem is I have no idea what red cedar sells for. I can either sell it rough sawn or I can planed it down.If anyone knows what red cedar sells for I would appreciate it if you let me know. I plan of putting some pe...
I have been contracted to supply a boutique somewhere in New Mexico with 36 pairs each of Red Heart and Cedar candle holders, with the promise of more orders to come before summer. Also a local T-Shirt shop has just ordered 75 tie dyed shirts—all purple because of the high school colors—and they want them before the end of the month. I’ve been busy building my assembly table and moving some things in my shop, but I’ll put that on hold to get these jobs out on tim...
I’m new to the web site and I guess I forget a few details about my first project. I found the plans in the American Woodworker Great Book of Woodworking Projects. I made the love seat out of construction grade western red cedar that I purchased at a local Lowes. I finished it with General Finishes Outdoor Oil. Thanks for the positive feedback. More projects in the works. I hope to post more really soon!
We usually take the winter off of working in the shop, we spend the winter months trapping bobcats. Most of the time I am home with the kids and cathing up on much needed office work. Even though it is noce to take a break from the dust and loud noise; it is also nice to return to it. We have been back in the shop for a month know making table lamps and working on custom orders. My new project for the next few days is this soon to be table lamp. Can you see the beauty? I have taken pictures ...
