Table Challenge #3: First stages

2709 days ago by MsDebbieP | 70 comments »

Martin has asked for blogs re: the big table challenge and I figured that since I am tracking the process of this “creation” I might as well follow the journey with some photos. I re-read the rules to see if I was breaking any rules by posting the progress but I didn’t see anything that indicated that this was a “no-no” .. so here is the progress! Photo 1: The Beginning The table will be mostly willow of course (Hey, Chip – here’s my addiction o...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

1387 days ago by rivergirl | 50 comments »

Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1781 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....

894 days ago by KoryK | 36 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art.

We’ve made several log beds (eventually, we even began making the bed frames from log~even though I wimped out on my son’s bed) but we are currently working on our first log bed for sale. The queen sized bed is really our best work yet but we’re stumped when it comes to how we should finish it. We re...

Ive had an experience here at lumber jocks that has caused me to think on this topic today. early this morning i awoke ..it was around 4am…so i went to read my email and catch up with that. I had a private message sent to me, it was entitled apology. This of coarse caught my attention, so i opened it to read and by the time i was done i felt several emotions…one of them was ashamed, the reason being is as i have gone through my life, being a good friend or as we call them here a g...
