Fastner & Small Parts Storage

06-05-2011 06:46 AM by Woodwrecker | 13 comments »

Hi everyone. I was trying to figure out a way to store some of my fasteners and small parts which lead me to construct this. Take some Dollar Store baking pans, some scrap wood, and a little routing, sanding & painting and problem solved. I then use my label maker to identify what is in each pan. I’m still sorting things out, but so far it’s worked great. You can take the one you need to your work area and bring it back when you’re done. I don’t think it&#...

Playing Around with Carving #1: Getting Rolling

06-01-2011 02:11 AM by WayneC | 19 comments »

I had been thinking about playing with carving for a while. I did some exploring in a forum post and decided it would be better to continue the discussion in a blog format. This way I can track my progress. The original post that got this started is located here. There is lots of good information in the forum post on safety and carving resources. I’ve decided to start with chip carving for several reasons. First, I am currently temorarly stuck in a wheel chair/walker due to a fal...

05-19-2011 12:28 AM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...

Box making with Andrew Crawford in England

05-18-2011 08:31 PM by RogerBean | 13 comments »

Last year I wrote a review here on LJ about my visit with Andrew Crawford in England. Andrew has made some of the finest boxes ever produced, and has turned some of his efforts to sharing his knowledge and methods with others. My three days with him last year were so productive and helpful that I decided to spend some more time with him this spring at his shop in Shropshire. Andrew’s shop is located in a nineteenth century converted barn on the historic Acton Scott farms site (sort o...

Designing Modern vs. Traditional

05-16-2011 08:52 PM by Dennis Zongker | 16 comments »

Have you ever wondered when you’re designing a piece of furniture or box or anything made of wood, how your mind comes up with the design? What makes you say, “WOW” how did they come up with that design?” I think it has a lot to do with what influences you. For me I have been studying furniture history and the influence from the old masters, which involves carving, marquetry and other traditional techniques. What I don’t understand with my designs is that I love the new...

Well, I am started down the road now to creating a rocking horse for my granddaughter, Emma.She will be two years old this Christmas, and has now just begun to walk.

We cut this tree down in Feb and just got the video done. We slabed the burl and the logs in to counter top blanks and table blanks. We used my 088 stihl with a 36” and 72” bar. Also for the slabbing used the the 60” lucas mill slabber. The pic below the vid are 12’ slabs of the log. Enjoy and thanks for watchingGregwww.oregonburls.com
