Ok, so first post—— I’ve just finished building what could (charitably) be called my third project. Have yet to finish it. The impetus for this is a need for somewhere to keep recycling (bottles, cans, etc) in our new house. We have entirely renovated our kitchen recently, so this is one of the final pieces of that project. It’s pine from local HD. Held together with pocket holes—no fancy joinery here. Cutting was all done on my (new!) table saw, which ...
We have two, large juniper slabs for sale in Overgaard, AZ. The largest measures roughly 34 3/4” x 63” and is 3” thick, we are asking $225. The narrower of the two measures about 21’ across the middle x 57” tall and is 2 1/4” thick, and we are asking $150.We have more slabs of comparable size that we are willing to sell, and more pictures are available upon request.
Stories of Wood That Yearn ”....tis in the sliding of the barn door’s opening, that the eye of man meets those other’s, who have heard the news, that often what is sold as wood, be-comes the more of what is worked as art....” Often now the mornings are getting colder and so I find myself coming out here earlier to start the fire in the belly of my beast, as I prepare the tools that the ‘old timer’ will be using today. Tools come in many forms shapes a...
The results of many hours planing and sanding…. Once I buy some more sandpaper I will finish this up with probably 400 or 600 grit on the orbital sander, and then give it a critical hand sanding with 800grit. I could easily get away with the finish how it is now with just 220grit and hand sanded with 320grit, but I want to see if its worth the effort for even finer sanding on future projects. In these pics, I have just wiped the dust off with mineral spirits. Pretty cool. Notice in ...

Back before Christmas I built this simple beer tote to present some beers, which I had bought my Dad as a gift. As this was a gift I designed it to tightly house the bottles (the handle acts to hold them in place) but this could easily be adapted for day-to-day use. Check out the video below!

(The following is reposted from my personal blog, Toward Simple. You can view the original post by clicking here.) Finally, I have finished a couple of small woodcraft pieces made from reclaimed objects. I forgot just how fulfilling it is to work with little more than a few pieces of wood, limited tools, and one’s own hands and imagination. I’m beginning to think of the salvaged materials I’ve been gathering – wooden pallets, fenceposts, etc. – as small to...
Thanks maricamp for the nudge to do an update on my progress with the chair. It’s definitely coming along. I’d say I’m about 90% done actually, and it has been a lot of fun watching this take shape. I’ve made some mistakes along the way, thankfully none of those mistakes have been unrecoverable. If/when I make another one of these, I’ll be able to do it MUCH faster. I took lots of care sanding the most visible surfaces like the back of the chair, the top of th...
Having successfully burned out my Dremel, I went for the cordless drill as well as my chisels. Judging by the amount of wood i still had to go through, I’d have likely killed another dremel in the process! I guess they are made for lots of different jobs, not so much hogging off wood for extended periods. I’ll definately be looking into those carving tools Dick suggested. Didn’t take too long to get all three legs liberated from each other, was tricky with the “can...
