Juniper free form bowl #1: Rough shape

03-27-2012 06:12 PM by junipercanyon | 3 comments »

Special thanks to the inspiration I found from lumberjock Scott Shangraws projects. (http://lumberjocks.com/shangrila) I started with a half round chunk of juniper fire wood. A few hours of carving with a chainsaw, then my angle grinder with a round chainsaw attachment, and finally a 40 grit flap wheel grinder and here is what I have. I used my dremel tool to route out any cracks, and added a few more lines as my mind saw fit to add some stone inlays for both something interesting t...

Swiss Trip #3: Architecture at it's best

01-08-2011 03:58 AM by Roger Strautman | 9 comments »

After about half of the tour it hit me at how much different the architecture was in Switzerland than here in the good old USA. When I sat back and really thought about it Switzerland is around 500 years older than us and they shouldn’t be like us.

wood inlay with rock and resin #1: this is my technique

08-30-2010 11:19 PM by Andy Needles | 5 comments »

Hello. Here’s my disclaimer! Let me start by saying: wear respirator protection throughout this whole process! This is dangerous dusty work, and I claim no responsibly for what you do with this information. This is just an account of what I do. It took me awhile to figure out the inlay piece, and I’m more than willing to share what I’ve learned. Ive attached rock crushers and a pic of resin and rock on a scrap to my projects section- im just not up to speed on this HTM...

Turquoise Inlay for Wood Turning #1: Turquoise Inlay for Wood Turning

06-29-2010 03:55 AM by NightOwl | 5 comments »

My wife and I have been working with Turquoise a good bit in our wood turned works. The project titled “Blue Starburst Bowl” received some great feedback along with a couple requests for a blog on our process of inlaying with natural stone. Unfortunately we have never set out to formally document our process so we don’t have any photos of intermediate steps. Therefore, I’ll do my best to describe the steps in detail. Starting outFirst you need something to inla...

Downtime

11-07-2007 02:19 PM by Dekker | 0 comments »

Well, I have not had much time to work in the shop this week. My chunky boxes are just waiting for final sanding and finish, but I can’t seem to get the free time at home right now. Maybe this upcoming long weekend, with it being Rememberance day on Monday. But I did manage to swing by the local PrincessAuto yesterday on my way home, and I walked out with a cheap $12 diamond-plate sharpening block (on sale). It has four 2×6 sides, each with a different grit (200, 300, 400, 600)....

Relief Carving My Birger Sandzen-Inspired Desk Door Panel, A step-by-Step Log.

10-10-2007 01:31 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 19 comments »

I hesitate to do this, that which I am about to do. I don’t fancy myself as a good carver, or a great picture drawer. Especially with so many lumberjocks that are great carvers here that will see this. On top of that, there are so many great carvers on the internet that will stumble onto this blog because they surf the net. With that said, after Mark Mazzo asked about the process I go through to do a carved panel like this one, I thought about it for awhile, and decided to show th...
