Sacred Places of Wood ….herein lies the door to my soul,and where is the worker of wood’s soul to be found,but in the shop of their own making,far re-moved and off the beaten path of to-day’s clutter…. ….out here with the wood i can let imagination spread her wings,just as the lady called wisdom also dwells deep within these walls,enter in at this door and one enters a sacred place as time expires,just as in the forest of wood that so encircles me calling out my na...

Looking for project suggestions for an awesome plank of pine

I was in the mountains this weekend and was driving down the highway just outside Estes Park (beautiful drive if you ever get to Colorado). I saw a shop with rustic furniture for sale outside. But what caught my eye were several HUGE planks of wood leaning against the building. I wasn’t sure if they were demo pieces or if he sold them separately. I pulled in to the Pine Cone Furniture woodshop and asked about the planks out front. He said the big ones were on sale for $75 and the lit...

Brainstorming Stage

06-08-2009 04:56 PM by James | 4 comments »

So I have all of this old barn siding. The barn in my estimate was 100+ years old (Wish i would have taken a picture of it). I managed to pull some of the more useable planks off of it, and here’s what I have: The box is made from this wood and stained with watco danish oil and 1 coat of poly. I would like to make something rustic out of it, as it has lots of wear. There are bug tracks, nail holes, stains, and imperfections in all the boards. They are pretty warped...
