Ambrosia-birdseye maple #4: Now I have a box

1012 days ago by JoeyG | 5 comments »

So first I sanded up the bottom detail using a drum sander on my ancient drill press next I cut the dado for the bottom to set in. I don’t have a dado blade so I just make multiple passes on the table saw. After that is done, I move on to sand the inside of the box. Since it is nearly impossible to do after the box is together this is the perfect time to do it. Now it’s just a little glue and some tape. I have found that with boxes this small tape is more than enou...

What to do with a cedar blanket chest

709 days ago by MichaelT77 | 9 comments »

I have a one-man handyman service, and a customer of mine just gave me an old cedar blanket chest (trunk?). It’s about 50 years old, and the lady just didn’t want it in her house anymore. So, I brought it home. She told me that it was cedar-lined, but I discovered that it’s actually solid 3/4” cedar. Made by Lane. It’s not very attractive as is, but I’m thinking about what I can do with it. I could just give it way, or I could break it apart and mak...

Indian Intarsia

2278 days ago by Allison | 20 comments »

I thought I would try my hand at writing a blog here. This is a totally different way for me as far as patterns go. I am used to a pattern that is on a sheet of paper the size the object will be when done. and then you make copies and cut out the pieces of the paper pattern and place them on your wood. This pattern came like this.One sheet of paper NOT actual size.Then the pattern itself IS in pieces you need at the size they are suppose to be. When I first started this, a couple days ago, I ...

Sierra Nets @ the Pleasantan Fly Fishing Show 2012

929 days ago by Greg | 7 comments »

I decided I need to plug my business with a recent article in Western outdoor News (WON). But I wanted it to look nice, so I made a mahogany frame with lap jointed corners and wenge plugs. I used dye and coated with lacquer. My artist buddy Jeff Sprecher happened to have a mat cutter and cut the mat that went into the frame. I had a custom piece of glass cut for it at the local glass shop. I love how it came out. I created the booth in CAD to begin designing something (I ha...

What Is Burl?

718 days ago by OregonBurls | 9 comments »

What Is Burl? I have discovered that this question is the most searched question for burls on the internet. Over 140,000 times world wide per month. So I read what Wikipedia’s definition is and found out that they are not clear and in some details are wrong in their definition. So I am going to attempt to clear the muddy waters. First of all Wikipedia says: “A burl (American English) or bur or burr (used in all non-US English speaking countries) is a tree growth in which the grain ha...

Cedar spectacular

2181 days ago by cabinetmaster | 11 comments »

In response to Karson’s wood find on cedar lumber, this is an example of some cedar lumber I found about 6 years ago. A gentleman advertised that he had some cedar lumber for sale. I called him and got directions to his place. When I got there the lumber looked like this picture. The gentleman told me that he had cut the cedar 30 years ago and it had been stored in his attic. He decided to get it down and sell it. He took it out of his attic and put it on the back porch. But befo...
