Working with Madrone Burl

11-10-2009 04:43 AM by OregonBurls | 9 comments »

Journal entry 11/9/2009 Working with MadroneBowl turned by David Gould from NY Proper handling and stabilizing of Madrone Madrone in a very self-destructive wood. I will crack and twist on you in a matter of hours even minutes sometimes. But don’t let that scare you. It is a beautiful wood to turn on a lathe or what ever the application. What you ask of the supplier: First of all make sure that you request sealing of all sides of the burl and not a thin coat. It has to be thic...

10-29-2009 03:33 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

Well, after a bit of a hiatus, I’m back working at the Sculpted Rocking Chair. In my most recent post I continued with processing of the rear legs. This involved making a 20-degree jig for use at the band saw, shaping the areas at the seat joints and also drilling for the headrest. Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Thanks for reading!

How to find great figure wood other than Burl

10-24-2009 05:33 PM 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...

Yesterday the first installment ended with all the holes having been drilled for the two pairs of hingesIt’s all Scroll Saw work from here! I took a few minutes first to police the area though. It had gotten a little out of hand, even for me!!The work begins with slicing off the waste area which exposes the side drilling.Next is the beginning of the shaping. Side cuts first. These are a bear to cut!! Scroll Saws are not Chop Saws! They’ll do this sort of cutting, through about 1 1...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM 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

09-27-2009 06:08 PM 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...
