How to find great figure wood other than Burl

1738 days ago by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1749 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....

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

1765 days ago by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Projects #3: Kitchen Island

1772 days ago by NedB | 8 comments »

Buddy of mine gave me a chunk of bowling alley earlier this year. I was going to make Something out of it, and my wife asked if I would make a rolling kitchen island to replace our kitchen table. It needed a little cleanup on the ends, and I lucked out, only barely nicking this nail with a router bit. The plan is for it to be counter height: I decided to do a decorative treatment on the ends of the rails, somewhat ‘greene and greene’ influenced, but just out o...

The Wine Rack (I can't tell if my pics will appear or not!!)

1774 days ago by NBeener | 3 comments »

Got an old book of DIY woodworking plans, from a used book store. First thing I flipped to was a wine rack—coincidentally, something we’ve talked about buying for our kitchen/living room. This one called out white oak, with darker walnut plugs (to conceal exposed dowel holes, and used to provide a decorative contrast). I got a chance to pick up two new hole saws, a doweling jig (neat!), my first Forstner bit, a couple of strap clamps, and a bunch of beautiful wood. Not...

A Good Vase Gone Bad

1781 days ago by Innovator | 8 comments »

I have been turning a lot of bowls lately and my wife is finding it hard to find places for all of them in the house. She has had to resort to putting them on a rotation so each one gets some time on a table or counter in the house. So I decided to change gears a little bit. I have been working on some hollow vessels lately. Notice I said working on! So I cut up a rock maple log that I had sitting on my wood pile and I went to it. I wasn’t sure what I wanted the vase to look like but I ...
