This little blog is to supplement my project labelled ’Meet “Arty” my little articulated friend.’ which should have been or will be “projected” shortly. A brief word about the author…. I am currently chair ridden due to a sprained ankle so I can only channel my “talents” to typographic mistakes rather than woodworking ones and thereby inundate LJ with my verbal diarrhea. As the “Arty” project briefly discusses “nuts”, th...

Here is a sign I made on the CNC for my parents backyard, it is made of reclaimed Cypress wood that was pulled out of a swamp in Lou...
I am working on a commission project that required me to make a rather large hollow cylinder. It needed to be 9” in diameter with a 1/2” wall thickness, and about 11 inches long. The client wanted to use Jatoba, which I could only get in lumber, so I glued up an octagon to work from.
