Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork – Intarsia Woodworking There is no beginning and there is no end. The roots and the branches of the Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork intertwine and become one. This Celtic knotwork design symbolizes timelessness of nature and creates balance and harmony. The lines in this project never end. I have not given Celtic knotwork much thought in the past when it comes to creating Intarsia pieces until I was asked to do the Celtic Love knotwork project a while ba...
If you have never considered making friends with the local tree service companies in your area, you should! It is a great resource for getting wood free or very cheap. I have tree services call me whenever they have a tree I may be interested in.. I tell the the 3 C’s Cherry, Cedar, Cypress.. along with Red and White Oak and anything else I may be interested in.. Well I had one of those services call me about a Pecan Tree…. I wasn’t about to turn that Down…Here is a lo...
OK, maybe all of my wood-tec type friends out on LJ,s can help me figure this out. I’ve allways been fascinated with the dynamics of curing and drying wood after the harvesting process. One to overcome is of cource the growth vortex that occures in some species and not in others. One question I have is this, Is there a right-hand vortex that occures above the equator as opposed to a left hand one bellow the equator? When a tree wiggles and struggles up out of the grownd, It also “...
The boyz at the rifle range have been concerned about a tree above the back stop falling down and damaging the high power target carriers and roof. Its roots have been emerging from the hill for years. We have some awesome wind storms at times. One of these days, the wind and erosion will drop it. If they don’t the continuing weight of growing branches on the south side will bring it down with a substantial landslide as well. Growing in that position, well over 3/4 of the weight wa...
Just thought I’d give everyone a bit of info on this Sasafras Tree that I’m holding up on my prof pic.
I have recently come accross a black walnut tree that will be dropped in the next couple weeks. It is 19” diameter and 30ft tall. I have a big enough chainsaw and chainsaw mill jig attachment but this is the first time ever attempting milling “green” wood. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas of what to do with it after I have it cut down to rough cut lengths and thicknesses? Also what about drying it out if it needs it? or ? Will it affect any future projects ie: cabinetry, sh...
Here are a few pics of the maple and alder collecting I did last fall and late summer out at the tree farm. A few whacks with the maul on a couple of wedges turns this into these ;-)) This double grab hook comes in real handy Easy to open when it gets bound up too tight :-)) Handy for lifting logs too The Tree Farm is on the far end of the low hill in the foreground. It is just about dead center in the picture where the darkest green gets a bit lighter for the next hill...
OK, it didn’t really start HERE, but way back about the time I signed up for lumberjocks when I got these applewood logs. I already mentioned it in a previous post, but for those that did not read it here it is again (if you’ve read it you can skip to step 3) The Applewood Logs Story2007, I was just getting into woodworking, had a circular saw, drill, and a router. my wife saw an add on craigslist giving away applewood. I went to see the guy, a nice older woodworker that was mo...
