Pekka- American Finnish Wood Carver.

08-21-2016 12:55 PM by Combo Prof | 4 comments »

My wife is a member of the local Hand Weaver Guild and they planed a meeting at Peter “Pekka” Olson’s home. So I tagged along. Here are some photos: (1) Pekka carving a fan bird: It was carved from green riven cedar.(2) 2014 video: Peter Olson - Finnish American woodcarver - YouTube(3) Picture of his wood shop: (4) Here I am trying to make his newly made spring pole lathe work: He lives about 20 minutes from me, so if it ever stops raining, I think I...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #3: Part 2B# - Inspiration at the Chicago Art Institute

07-22-2016 01:21 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I realized shortly after posting Part #2 that some inspirational pictures might go a long way towards illustrating my point (like the pun?). After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Last summer we visited the Chicago Art Institute. Wow what a place. We saw plenty of major works of art. This one might be familiar: Of course there were plenty of other Masterpieces. Then, towards the end of the day we sauntered into a gallery that had furniture in it. I immediately spotte...

Making all wood folding knives #1: The first twelve parts

04-27-2016 11:53 PM by poospleasures | 6 comments »

Several of you have asked for instruction for making the all wood folding knives I,ve been doing for a number of years. Hope I can give that instruction through this blog series. If to many get fed-up with this please let me know to stop. Starting today 4/27/16 we will begin. It would probably be a good idea to have a folding pocket knife handy to be able to look to see the pieces we are talking about. I will be making three knives at this time. #1 is choosing the material. You can make the ...

Gallery of Wood Art Exhibit - Landmark Center, St Paul, MN.

02-28-2016 10:06 PM by WillliamMSP | 6 comments »

I like to take pics, so when I took a little stroll through a wood turning exhibit this morning, I snapped a few. All of images should be linked to larger versions, should you want to see them a lil’ bigger. Not sure what this was made out of, but it was probably my favorite piece at the exhibit – Mango (left, with keys) and Milo wood (right) – These had an almost stone-like translucence – Wormy – Norfolk Island Pine – I thought that ...

Splinters of thought #6: Photo shoot

10-28-2015 01:13 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Being a woodworker without a brick and mortar studio to sell my junk I have to rely on portraying my goods on-line and that requires acceptable photos. I do sell my furnishings in local art galleries, but they take a big commission and don’t have a high turnover. I have sold through www.custommade.com for years and done very well, now I have gotten the all important word of mouth and don’t need to go looking for work anymore which is great, but I still need good pictures of my wo...

In Russia #1: Happy Couple

09-22-2013 12:09 AM by Jim Earl | 3 comments »

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...

The Workbench #6: Top Shelf Complete - with Pictures

08-09-2013 01:28 AM by debianlinux | 0 comments »

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...

Way Back Wednesday #1: November 10, 2010

11-11-2010 05:19 AM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

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 ...
