Found a Eucalyptus log and planed down a branch Pen blank? Nice spalting, I was stoked to find that.
From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #5: Working towards the first stones of rebuilding
The view, the reason for buying a 200 year old derelict cottage at this place in the rural heart of Portugal, is sometimes scary. Bush fires are common during the summer. In this case our view from the hilltop became a dark spectacle. After a few years you get use to it, and it makes you carefull with fire. Sometimes it’s the only way to get rit things, so at the first rain fall in october…. To show that there is some woodworking involved during the first years of th...
Processes involved making the base of a dressing table. Tons of little hints and tips.

On my first few drives to my new job way up in North Hollywood I passed by a large, grassy park loaded up with – by my standards – enormous trees. I vowed to check them out, and on Wednesday of last week, I took a lunchtime walk down there. It’s only a few blocks, though they are large, city blocks. It’s probably not a full 10-minute walk, so it’s not bad. Looking it up later, I learned that it’s North Hollywood Park. The Days of Our Lives cast did a ...
I had a meeting today with a friend who does pet portraits here in LA. He left the film effects business last year to focus on his two passions: pets, and photography. It’s working out for him. He did portraits of all of Paris Hilton’s dogs last year. He has a bunch of freelance work for me – website stuff – which will be great to tide me over as I continue to pursue full time employment again. In other financial news, looks like I’m getting a tax refund to the t...

So you take one seriously grotty, old, dry, termite ridden, rotting chunk of gumtree (Eucalyptus).Strip off as much of the rot & termite crud as you can with a crowbar.Slice it on a bandsaw.And admire the beauty within after a little sanding and a quick coat of liquid wax .You never can judge a book by its cover
Well all 17 metres of Gum tree (see this post) have been sliced and are sitting in my drying room. In my previous posts I showed some of the beautiful slabs I cut out of logs that would otherwise have landed in the garbage dump, and just for kicks, here are a few more. ... And here are some pics of the process....Now we wait for many months until they are dry enough to be turned into projects.
