"Behind Blue Eyes" #4: Eye brows and base

10-02-2011 06:22 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

It took a bit, but I think I finally have the eye brows like I want them. I carefully drew them out and measured and researched them and did a bunch of thinks before I started cutting wood. I used a really small v gouge and carefully cut them in, making sure the hairs pointed properly. And I didn’t like it….didn’t look right, was too dark. So I tried my bristle sander and several other things to fix it up. I finally took knife in hand and cut them off and started over. I had...

Starting My Business #6: Sappy MOLDY Cherry

10-01-2011 09:47 PM by ChrisCrafts | 4 comments »

Last time, At The Workshop, I was making bowl blanks out of some Sappy Cherry I had acquired. I had covered some with old candle wax and some with Anchor Seal. I painted on the Anchor Seal and Tossed it all in a pile. I also snapped my 3/4” Re-saw Blade at the weld. A couple days later I got really sick. As the week went on my head blew up like a balloon to the point that I couldn’t breath and was popping Benadryl and Sudafed 12 hour like candy. Yesterday I realized it wasnR...

Free Cherrywood

10-01-2011 06:01 AM by Trev_Batstone | 3 comments »

While searching the ’Free’ section of Craigslist this afternoon, I found some free cherrywood firewood logs right in my neighborhood, so I immediately jumped in the car and went over and picked up a few logs. I got them stored under one of my work tables in the shop. When they are dry in a year or so, I figure I can probably get 10 or 12 burl clocks out of them. It always pays to check out the ‘free’ section of Craigslist.

"Behind Blue Eyes" #3: Corrections and Additions

09-29-2011 06:23 PM by mpounders | 3 comments »

Still working away on this, but I try to go slowly at times to make sure I see things that need to be changed. I sometimes rush through things and don’t always pick up on mistakes until after they are finished and sitting on a shelf. Some people recommend looking at your work in a mirror to help pick up on problem areas, but I often see things in photos of my work that I don’t always see when holding it in my hand. So I am trying to correct a few details. Someone may have mentione...

Lumber Score!

09-24-2011 05:34 AM by SteveKorz | 14 comments »

I was walking through the timber a month ago, and found a huge smooth bark hickory that had fallen from a storm. The trunk was 24” in diameter at its base, and 30 foot up the trunk it was 16” in diameter. When I saw it, I knew it just had to be milled. I already had a cherry that had fallen that was 20 foot tall and a foot in diameter. So, I called a sawyer that came and picked up one 6 foot and two 12 foot hickory logs, and one 5 foot and two 8 foot cherry logs. ...

Starting My Business #5: The Sweet Smell of Sappy Cherry

09-21-2011 06:08 PM by ChrisCrafts | 2 comments »

Last weekend I picked up a good size Cherry tree for cheap. 2/3 of it is going to the lathe and the remaining 8 foot section is going to be slabbed up for tables & such. This gave me the opportunity to make my first bowl blanks. I have had about 2 cords in the back 40 (sq feet) for the past 6-9 months. I hadn’t cut any of it up yet, and it was started to wear thin on the wife’s patience. Now my whole shop reeks of Cheap Black Cherry Soda. The Cherry was cut down in early...

Custom Knife Blocks #2: The Sides

09-15-2011 03:34 PM by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

The sides of the knife blocks consist of 5 pieces of bookmatched walnut, maple and cherry 3/8” thick and 13 1/2” long which was determined by the length of the longest knife blade .I sized the 4/4” rough lumber to pieces that are 5 1/4” wide x 15” long and jointed one edge and one face and set the bandsaw up for resawing.Once all of the resawing is done,a few trips through the planer gets everything to 3/8.” Both block sides consists of 2 walnut, 2 maple ...

Custom Knife Blocks #1: Let The Fun Begin

09-15-2011 03:38 AM by wdkits1 | 4 comments »

Hi everyoneAs some of you may know I got a sizable commission for producing some custom knife blocks for a client that will give them as Christmas gifts to their best customers. When I had originally talked with the client they had wanted to order as many as 40 of these blocks but after discussing their budget we settled on doing 25 which considering the deadline for delivery didn’t hurt my feelings. The blocks are made from Walnut, Maple and Cherry and the style was something that t...
