I should start showing the beginning picture of my burnings so you can see what I work off of. OK I made a mistake, I did not take a picture before I started this burning so I hope you will be able to see the before and after. Here is a couple that has asked me to burn this as a special momenta. Trying to get the right picture done as a pattern isn’t that easy and sometimes it turns out the first few times. this one took about six time of reprinting. I do go through a lot of in...
Got a couple hours of free time this afternoon to lug it all out and have a go at fastening the shelf plywood to the top shelf frame. I’m doing this shelf first for a couple of reasons. Primarily, because if I screw it up I don’t have to see the surface of it as it will be above eye level and I can learn from those mistakes before I fasten the other shelves. Also, this particular shelf will require two pieces of plywood as opposed to the others which get monolithic pieces. ...

My web site has been an evolution process. I’ve been trying to make thing easier to navigate and to especially find information. One of the main draws to my site has been the Current Projects page. There I post pictures daily on what I am working, I also have a video stream of the ship, that will show 1 of 4 camera view of the shop. Customers watch what I’m working on. ArchivesI’ve always archived my pictures each month, but would put the links on a separate page. Th...
My intent for Way Back Wednesday was to post pictures of project that go back years. Some that are even PC (Pre-Chris). I thought I’d start first with the “Original Crew”. The first picture is Gary (my dad) and three of his brothers (Jeff, Larry, and Curtis). Not pictured in the first picture of he Original Crew is my mom Lou, uncle Jimmy and my Grandpa Ray. This is truly a family business. All my uncles have worked here and the youngest works with me now. I do have ...
Received some proofs of some pics after editing. I really like what Sue did with some of these. This one is my favorite. I love the chips and particles in the air - Like the Sepia tones used when I was sharpening - I like this pic, though I get teased about it. I am not holding the board with one hand while planing with the other :) I have the board in the vise and I am grasping it lightly for balance. And this is a nice one from underneath. Not usually a fan of pictur...
Recently, I was lamenting to a friend about my limitations in the camera department. She wanted to take some pictures of me working so I demonstrated some tool use (well, the way I use them anyway ;), so now I have some pictures of me working in the shop. Lathing Here are a few pics of me setting up a block and turning with the roughing gauge - Sharpening Using the Work Sharp to put an edge back on the roughing gouge - I still can’t freehand on a grinder ...

I took some new pictures of my shop. (More on my site) They are all in the shop section on my blog. The old ones were taken with my cell phone, so the quality was not the best. Still working out a few things with my blog (trying to get some things with Google search worked out). I’m having trouble getting this site to show up in Google search. Hope to get this stuff worked out soon. If anyone can help it would be grately appreaciated. Also, I have been editing away, I have taped a...
Well today marks a major milestone for me. I just got back from mailing out my first sale to an Art Gallery out of state. As you all has seen, I put pictures of my burnings on the internet and was surprised by an e-mail about a week ago from an Art Gallery wanting two of my Burnings. She said she had a gentleman wanting a couple of them. I sure hope this is the start of something. I am still looking for new pictures to burn on your boxws, any projects you may have. I am looking for a new woo...
