Drying Burl Wood #2: Consideration #2 By OregonBurls

08-28-2012 04:00 PM by OregonBurls | 3 comments »

Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1627: On to the Weekend!

09-25-2015 12:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is hard to believe that we have another weekend under our belts! But with the mornings getting cooler and the darkness lasting a little longer each day, it is hard to forget that the beautiful summer weather is giving way to autumn. Time surely passes quickly when we are busy! Yesterday I spent the day with Keith updating the site and getting out my bi-weekly newsletter. We changed all the sales on our Pattern Specials page and we added another new pattern that Keith created. This tim...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1389: The "Two-Minute" Blog

08-26-2014 09:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call to remind me that I had an eye doctors' appointment in Digby this morning.  I must be getting old because I completely forgot about it. I also thought I set my Google reminders to remind me, but I guess I forgot that as well, or I did it wrong. In any case, I have to skeedaddle out of here today and it is supposed to be a beautiful and sunny day here in Nova Scotia. My sweetie thought it would be a great day to play "hookie" ...

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #1: Ready to build!

01-08-2012 08:36 AM by Ryan Haasen | 3 comments »

My Dad and I made a trip to the Black Forest Company today and picked up the supplies for the helicopter project. The body will be out of cherry, the main rotors will be wenge and other details will be other exotic woods such as padauk and yellowheart. This evening I laminated the sheets of cherry into a 7” by 7” by 27” (length) blank. Tomorrow the new bandsaw is going to get quite the work out cutting this baby out. Hopefully all goes well.

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #9: handle, lid, and finishing the inside

12-12-2011 01:49 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

Above you see the handles attached. After deciding the general shape of the handle and the location I drilled holes and inserted dowels, then glued them up Next I slide the nails back into place and mark where the handle falls on the side of the box. Once the area that needs to be removed for the handle is marked I use a flush cutting saw (my best cutting saw) a coping saw, and a sharp chisel to remove the material Then I reinsert the nails and check for a good f...

Corner Tables - Take 2 #1: The beginning

04-27-2011 04:09 AM by Rick | 3 comments »

So here I go – making another set of tables. This time for my mother-in-law. She never really asks for anything for herself, so when she saw these and liked them, I couldn’t help but make a set. And this will satisfy a need she’s had in her living room for over a year. So, off I go – only this time it’s really only on weekends we don’t have softball… And for those who trudged through my last set with me through the blog, I’m doing this one...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #3: Milling

02-25-2015 03:12 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

I was tasked by my boss to modify a part for the machines that I work on. A 6’ long and half inch square piece of plastic that is a guide rail. I had to rip it on the table saw and ream out the screw holes. I made them order me a special plastic cutting blade that arrived on Monday. Last week in anticipation for continuing my bench build, I had ordered a new ripping blade so consequently I was on hold until both blades arrived. The plastic one came first so I got that little job out of ...
