1700 lbs Black Oak Burl

04-07-2011 05:31 PM by OregonBurls | 15 comments »

Just started cutting into this burl. Incredible! I am not sure if I am going to cut table slabs or block it up for turners. Time will tell. Enjoy! I need to ask a favor of my friends here. Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots. PS Check out my new Website!!!

Oak Dresser Restoration #2: Finished at last!

04-06-2011 02:33 AM by Mark D. | 2 comments »

So after spending 820 days working 26 hours a day, 8 days a week on restoring this dresser it’s finally DONE! Ok, so it certainly was not a priority project and got very sporadic time devoted to it over the last 2 years but what a chore it was… I think it’s far easier to build something from scratch than to restore an older piece. As you can see from the first couple of pictures, there is a slight cup in the top which wasn’t able to be straightened out and you can s...

Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #14: Lesson 8 - Applying a Finish

04-04-2011 09:49 PM by MyChipCarving | 19 comments »

Applying a finish to your completed chip carving is a “make or break” step. Do it well and your chip carving comes to life and is something wonderful to behold. Do it poorly and your carving loses the beauty and the finish detracts from the chip carved design. Follow this lesson closely from start to finish and you’ll find success with each chip carving you complete from here on out. I call this the My Chip Carving Quick & Easy Finish Step 1 – Remove leftover...

Refreshing basic skills #1: Remembering how to cut dovetails

04-01-2011 05:56 AM by David Kirtley | 5 comments »

I have been reading other people’s posts on hand cut dovetails and I thought about it and realized that I have not actually hand cut a dovetail in a long time. For those that don’t know, I have been getting myself set up again for woodworking and it has been nearly 20 years since I had a workshop. Most of my time and effort has been getting tooled up again and I can say now that I have what I want to work with. The last phase of acquisition was getting saws. To start with, I g...

Building My Shop Before Retirement (the beginning) #1: How it was done #1

03-30-2011 08:40 AM by pjones46 | 7 comments »

The new home for my shop started two years ago before my retirement. All of the work was done by me with the help of a few paid carpenter helpers loaned to me by my nephew who has a construction company. Not including myself, all were Vocational school grads that have been in the field for a number of years. That includes the tree men, excavation, carpentry, and electrical. It all started by clearing the land of trees behind my house, then the excavation, then the foundation and fina...

We need a new for the new 64 inch plasma TV were buying. The design is a mixture of plans from a Wood Smith book and some ideas found on here. For example the Floating Glass Shelf comes from fellow LJ Storemore, had to change the plans to ensure my Electronics would fit along with looking p...
