Barrel Wine Rack #1: The Sides...

1761 days ago by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

It’s been at least a day since I started a new project/blog. My buddy Eric always says that projects are meant to be started, not necessarily finished. We go wine tasting in this rather industrial winery in Alameda, CA (we’re actually members). In their wine tasting loft is a very cute wine rack made out of wine staves. I’m at least as interested in their rack as their wine (far be it from me to pass up a nice rack). While waiting for other stuff to dry (that always...

Arts & Crafts Mantle Clock #1: One for You, One for Me...

1763 days ago by CaptainSkully | 8 comments »

I figured it was time to start another new blog. We’ve got friends that are getting married, and we wanted to give them something special. I figure the best gift you can give is one you want for yourself, so I’m going to make two while I’m at it. We originally thought about a mirror, but realized shipping it would be problematic. Then I thought about the clock project that had been bouncing around in the back of my head. After my usual extensive research, this is the de...

1764 days ago by OregonBurls | 21 comments »

Hey everyone, I was asked by a few of you from my blog “How to find legal burls” “once I get them how do I cut the burls”? Well I just made a short vidio on how I cut to the burl in the context of a bowl or hollow form blank. Please coment and add if I don’t cover it well.

Allyson's Nightstand #3: Finally finished

1767 days ago by Thomas Keefe | 9 comments »

Allyson’s nightstand is now complete. I had a few problems with the finishing. But other than that I am very happy with the way it turned out. I think that Ally likes it as well. The drawers are made of quarter sawn white oak (QSWO). They feature hand cut through dovetails (my first attempt). The top is also QSWO. I had a lot of trouble with tearout on the top. But based on advice I recieved here I was able to clean it up with a cabinet scraper. In the end, I think it turned ...

1772 days ago by littlecope | 12 comments »

Yesterday the first installment ended with all the holes having been drilled for the two pairs of hingesIt’s all Scroll Saw work from here! I took a few minutes first to police the area though. It had gotten a little out of hand, even for me!!The work begins with slicing off the waste area which exposes the side drilling.Next is the beginning of the shaping. Side cuts first. These are a bear to cut!! Scroll Saws are not Chop Saws! They’ll do this sort of cutting, through about 1 1...

Shaped Wooden Hinges #1: The Drilling

1773 days ago by littlecope | 18 comments »

People seemed to like the hinges I made for the last box,so I thought I’d take a few minutes and share how I made them. Like most stories, we begin at the beginning…with the wood!!It’s a leftover scrap of Oak from when I made the two flag cases. It has a groove cut in it, and I’m not going to use that section, but for now I’m going to leave it intact, for two reasons: #1) That side is nice and flat and #2) When I drill in through the side of this piece, I’l...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1774 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 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....
