Drying Burl Wood #2: Consideration #2 By OregonBurls

08-28-2012 04:00 PM by OregonBurls | 3 comments »

Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...

Selling Your Art Work?

08-27-2012 05:09 PM by OregonBurls | 12 comments »

Hey everyone, I have just redesigned Oregonburls.com would like to offer an artist page. I know that it is expensive to get your art into galleries that charge up to 40% of the sales price and ebay up to 25%+. Oregonburls.com is an advertised site. This page (Artist Corner) would allow you to sell your wood creations with just a flat fee of 10% of the sale price.You would keep your item and when it sells I print the shipping label and email it to you along with sending you a check or pa...

Just starting on a new project; end table for the living room. Started with a design from Woodsmith magazine and made some changes in size and design. First made a prototype leg out of mahogany. Next step will be to figure out what type of finish to use. Will post a sketch of the end table next time.

Future projects #1: Future dream project

08-26-2012 01:29 AM by EthanV | 1 comment »

Our house has a large empty loft with a dormer. We don’t use this space as of now. The loft will one day be a play room for our children. This is a sketch of what I have planned for the dormer. This is a day bed with shelves on either side and a trundle drawer pull out. It will be a great space for kids to sit and read, take naps and have sleep overs. Below is a sketch of a mural that will be painted on the underside of the arch. I want this to have a very whimsical but ti...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #789: Let's Have Some SNOW Already!

08-14-2012 11:01 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

These past couple of weeks have been by far the warmest of the year. While I understand that most people have it worse, I can’t help but think if it is this warm in Nova Scotia, it really has to feel hot everywhere else. It is no secret that I don’t like the really hot weather. Unless I can be lounging on a beach somewhere enjoying the sun, it just doesn’t do it for me. My philosophy is that you can always put more clothes on if you are cold, but when you are hot and u...

I can see a coffee mug & and a can of Pepsi. It looks as if Mama has an accomplices Miss Thembi and there are 7 mini Boxers How did she manage to get past the Jolly rouges?

Got a mini lathe but cant use it :((

08-11-2012 10:25 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 8 comments »

In my last blog entry you may have remembered i asked what is a good mini lathe. I went down to mcquillans blanchards town today and got a Draper 07989 250W 230V Variable Speed Mini Wood Lathe, it has variable speed so i dont have to changed the pulleys, a revoling centre and a faceplate and it only cost €220 + mcquillans always give a 10% discount so it ended up costing only €198 which i think is a real bargain but my parents got it for me for christmas so i cant use it till then:(. I also g...
