turnings #8: red oak "70's ashtray" - square edge bowl turning

1828 days ago by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I found a nice 5’ piece of red oak at Home Depot that was a bit odd in hue, having more depth to its grain than what I usually see there. I had visions of turning some square plates, so I snagged it: I really slacked off on pics of this turning. This is the only one: In it, I’ve cut the end from the plank to square it up and remove the chipped edges. Then I cut 2 pieces off as long as the plank was wide (7-1/4”). Then I cut some squares of birch from a leng...

1838 days ago by frank | 12 comments »

Barn Cat in Training and More…. I might as well introduce a new member in my barn and tell you some of her history. To start out with it might also help if I was to explain that the barn you are seeing here is an English Barn dated from around 1780. My wife and I started gutting this barn back in 2000 and then while I was on the road most of that winter, she along with a crew took the barn down in about a weeks time after numbering all the bents. Next after taking a year to get o...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #51: Sacred Places of Wood

1848 days ago by frank | 10 comments »

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...

tests #1: a thin, fig dish test

1861 days ago by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is from nearly a month ago. I’m behind on my adventures. Chucking something properly in a lathe takes a little bit of thought and prep work. I only had about an hour after work, but was in the mood to learn a bit more. In this test, I simply wanted to see if I could make a thin, dish-like object in a small chunk of Indian Laurel (Ficus microcarpa). I had recently acquired a ton of it, so I just pinched it between centers and had at it. The test dish I would turn was from a pi...

Colors of Shellac from a Kayak ….where art thou going oh gods of kayaking,“i go out in the tops of mountain ponds”,who is the one that you paddle along with by your side,“i paddle with the love of my heart who longs with me….” ”—-and so i turned the page to write again some words of wood—-” ....and so the gods came down to play amongst a colored backdrop,completed with water that still holds dreams of blue liquid desire,...
