The sister company to where I work is an arborist service, tree removals (sometimes), pruning, caring, fertilizing, risk management, etc. So I tend to get one of the first cracks at stuff that comes in. I was out looking at other logs they had brought in and noticed this guy sitting there. Fortunately it has just rained or else I would of missed it. The cross cut of the tree is what caught my eye. From a Maple tree that was starting to decay. Along the outer edge is some spalting too. ...
Finish off the simple built router table from last week with a table fence that cost just around $10.
My fiancee has been wanting a way to elegantly display her horse ribbons in the house. One idea she liked was the Ribbon box seen here http://www.mcguinnfarms.com/office_p1.html# This in all honesty is just a short stool with a box on it. I wanted to make something more useful but serving the same purpose. So my idea is an end table with glass sides framed in wood with a glass top also framed in wood. I decided on Red Oak for all the wood including the legs and the frames. I picked up 2×...
This is a very simple to build router table made from half a sheet of 3/4” plywood and a 1/4 sheet of 1/2” plywood.
I’m working on this coffee table as a wedding gift for my cousin and his wife-to-be. I’m a log furniture maker so there are a lot of techniques I haven’t been introduced to until I started working with fellow Lumber Jock, Kris Williams. Kris makes fine rustic furniture so I’ve been quite fascinated by some of the ways he does things and decided to start playing around with some of it. Of course, I don’t have all the machines Kris has so I require his help for a f...
EXPOSE PROGRESS IN SURFACE AGING AND CABINET WOODFINISH WHICH, IN MY MEMORY, WE HAD IN OUR HOUSE IN RUSSIA IN GERMAN VOLGA REGION.

WOODFINISH—IS AN OLD FAMILY RECIPE, BASED ON THE NATURAL WAX, WITH NATURAL PIANTS AND MINERAL PIGMENTS. WOODFINISH IS PREPARING IN SEVERAL STEPS, WHAT YOU CAN SEE ON THE PHOTOS.

I recently got a 6 foot length of sycamore which I cut in half in order to make a chopping block/table 3 foot by 2foot. Even after cutting in half the boards were so badly twisted that I had to split them length ways in order to flatten and plane them without removing too much material . The picture above shows the boards sawn ready for jointing and planing. I first of all flattened one face on the jointer and then put them through the thicknesser to achieve a consistent t...

Ok Got the aprons sorted out. Next time, check the width first. Got out a power tool for the next part of this build Unlike a bearded Guy with flannel Plaid shirts, I have just this as a router , for now. It was set up for the dovetail jig, with a 1/2” collet. Had to did around in the kit’s bag, and find the 1/4” collet, still in a zip lock bag. never been used. Switched them out, installed a cove bit. i wanted to run a cove around the top’s...
Ok, so I know that finishing is an art all in itself. Finishing takes a lot of time and patience for beginners, but it seems that once you get it, you got it! I am struggling pretty badly with a Cherry Top entryway table that I am making my wife. The table started one Saturday as a ‘nothing special’ just needing a place to put a lamp type of project. My wife bought some curvy legs (the type with balls at the bottom of the feet) at Lowes one day because they were on clearanc...
