Well this lamp is almost done. Tomorrow we will mount the lamps to the bases, run the cords and Tim will patch the lamps. I have not yet got my learning on how to do this. I have the basics down but havent tried it. He has pretty much mastered it so I will let him keep on with this task. We will have 10 lamps finished this weekend and next week we will start on a floor lamp and end table. These are custom orders that need to go out. I think I will blog about them as well. Anyway here is th...
Okay I had the lamp almost completely sanded before I was able to get the holes drilled. I myself have only drilled a few lamps so my husband helps out with this. It is not as easy as it seems, you have to make sure that you are aiming just right so you come out in the right spot so you end up through the bottom of the lamp. This first shot is of course the first hole that is being drilled, in the second shot you can see where the drill bit is coming out. Now starting at the exit hole w...
Tim, my husband worked on the base, it took 2 hours to get it leveled, shaped and sanded. The first two pictures are of the base after it has been run through the planer. This base is made out of burled cottonwood. Corners have been rounded and everything shaped before sanding. After two hours this base is done and looks great, the colors are really going to come out when we spray the finish on it. This is where I started sandblasting, the red dark wood has started to turn gray ...
We usually take the winter off of working in the shop, we spend the winter months trapping bobcats. Most of the time I am home with the kids and cathing up on much needed office work. Even though it is noce to take a break from the dust and loud noise; it is also nice to return to it. We have been back in the shop for a month know making table lamps and working on custom orders. My new project for the next few days is this soon to be table lamp. Can you see the beauty? I have taken pictures ...

RusticallyFlared-AsianInspiration—-a study in the cross cultural texture of ‘wood art’. ....so how proud are you of your underside? I still remember the time I was in a well known and famous gallery owner’s showroom over in the upstate region of … ...., looking at some of the furniture on display. Well next thing I know as I’m down on my hands and knees is a loud display of noise as this person let me know that I was on the verge of being aske...
Hello to all our fellow wood workers out there, and great job for doing what you love. Even though there are times that we get frustrated with a project that we are working on, run into on problem after the other; like finding new scratches everytime you change the angle of your light, whoops dropped it again, dang I forgot to do that or where did that run come from? We stick with it because it is a part of us, we love it and with every item that we make, we leave a little piece of ourselves ...

The Beauty of Wood Ashes ....study the volume of my wisdom, and know for a certainty that i am of your texture, texture’s of ashes as written on snow, page’s of snow that bring forth the beauty of wood ashes…. As I ruminate upon the art of finishing….and wood projects, all set to be-come abstracts of ‘wood art’, I often pause to catch a glimpse of what it means to touch the ‘soul of wood’.... ....’soul of wood’, into...
