How to find great figure wood other than Burl

10-24-2009 05:33 PM by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 38 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Projects #3: Kitchen Island

09-21-2009 05:54 AM by NedB | 8 comments »

Buddy of mine gave me a chunk of bowling alley earlier this year. I was going to make Something out of it, and my wife asked if I would make a rolling kitchen island to replace our kitchen table. It needed a little cleanup on the ends, and I lucked out, only barely nicking this nail with a router bit. The plan is for it to be counter height: I decided to do a decorative treatment on the ends of the rails, somewhat ‘greene and greene’ influenced, but just out o...

Craftsman Bookcase - Greene and Greene Influences

09-16-2009 02:15 AM by schroeder | 1 comment »

So I’m trying to take Sketchup to the next level. I’m having fun with it, but it is taking me a while to get the hang of “Layout”. I designed this Craftsman Bookcase (based on WoodSmith) with Greene & Greene influence. I will build two of these starting this fall. The shelving has stepped scallops with Breadboard ends. I’ll put the ebony buttons throughout the joints, but they were just too damn hard to draw in.I drew the plans in “Sketchup” and exported to “Layout”. It’s a cumb...

philosophy of woodworking #1: Some Principles of Zen Aesthetics

07-09-2009 11:28 PM by Adam Weis | 6 comments »

I have seen many posts on this site that describe a particular piece as “Zen” and while this word is not used in strict historical definition, I thought it might be interesting for some of you to share a bit about what I have learned about Buddhism and how one might be able to bring some Buddhist attitudes into the process of woodworking. So contrary to the title of this little post there isn’t really any such thing as Zen aesthetics. Zen refers to certain strains of practice within ...

Kitchen Remodel #15: The drawer fronts

07-02-2009 09:55 PM by Karson | 35 comments »

Once the weather warmed up I was able to go outside to spray the drawer fronts. This is the back that will be screwed up to the drawer and so it will never be seen again. So here is your last chance. It’s quilted maple veneer. I used it because it was big and i had a lot of it and I wasn’t sure that I’d ever use it so now some is gone. I can’t believe that I never took a picture of the drawers being sprayed. But, here they are installed. on the drawers. ...
