Turning Green Madrone Burl.

08-30-2012 05:54 PM by OregonBurls | 3 comments »

Hey everyone. Just another tip for Madrone and Madrone burl… I have been told that madrone shrinks a whopping 18% No wander it is a self destructive wood. So with that being said you can work with the shrinkage or tame the beast. I love the warping and shrinkage of the Madrone. If you can get spindles of green straight grain, you can turn some nice handles and what ever you put in them be it a knife or a gouge when that handle dries it is lock in for years of use. With green bu...

Metal stud makes easy long taper

08-29-2012 07:56 PM by Don Butler | 5 comments »

Making a taped rip cut can be hard to do just right and especially when the workpiece is longish.I had the occasion to make a thin taper about 38” long with only about 3/8” of taper. My favorite way to get an accurate taper is to spot glue a small bit of scrap on one edge of the piece and just slide it along the fence. The method, however, requires that both ends of the piece be in contact with the rip fence all the way through the cut.With most tablesaws and fences this won...

Cutting pieces of Coral

08-17-2012 12:49 AM by DouginVa | 6 comments »

Does anybody have experience in using coral (from the ocean) in furniture or wood projects? I am making a box for my brother and his wife as a thank you for letting me stay at their home in Hawaii. I collected a few pieces of coral from the beach and had an idea to use it as a lid pull/knob for the box lid. I though I’d cut the piece I wanted, grind the bottom flat, drill a small hole in it’s bottom and secure it to the lid with a small screw. But I don’t know how it w...

Iron images onto wood

08-16-2012 11:58 PM by Tokolosi | 9 comments »

I have had some ideas for a project but it required that I put an image onto the wood surface. Searching LJ’s I came onto this thread: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/20730 But it didnt quite answer all my questions. One Google search later I found this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuMtlZmyHKk Now this looked promising. I printed some pictures I found online. Chose images with different colors, text and a good amount of white areas (because white will become wood once tran...

08-14-2012 02:58 AM by Jason™ | 11 comments »

Well to start I pulled 2 old hand planes outta pappy’s garage and thought I would bring em home and see what I could do with them. At first glance I was about ready to just leave em and go to lowes and buy one of there cheap ones they offer well only one they offer for like 20 bucks or something. But I didn’t instead I came home and decided to clean the one up a bit and the larger one wasn’t too awful bad. Your opinion may differ but this is what im working with at the momen...
