So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small dish from a nice swirly root clump I noticed the fine intricate grain and subtle orange translucence. So I made several small lampshade prototypes. Pitch bled out of the wood with warmer bulbs obviously. But I am about to start a kickstarter.com project involv...
In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building. I stained everything this week as well as putting on the coat of glaze and then a coat of wipe on poly. Today I put about four hour into assembling the head and foot boards...

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...
So, I decided to build an out feed table for my table saw to make it easier to handle larger pieces of material. Because I am working with limited space – like so many others out there – decided to make it a fold away support. I had some old/new door hinges stored away so they are the basis of the geometry for folding the table down. This is the frame design: Of course – some changes were made once I got rolling. I really didn’t like the thought of having to r...
Has anyone made a poker table with a rustic log look?
Well hello everyone. We have moved into our new home, and living alone at last. I have my own garage, where I have made me a desk where I can wood burn more pictures, I have done a few more and will postthem in a few days. I have not started back smoking yet, and it is still hard. The last one I had was on May 6, 2009, and still going. ok I’ll let you all go and will keep in touch more often. Your LJ friend, Jim
