Using the new CNC to dish out some walnut… The above pic shows the roughing out stage..[using a 6 mm end mill 3 flute spiral bit – solid carbide]... the technique is called rastering… moving the bit back and forwards… A little closer… Roughing out finished, starting the final finishing path…[using a 3 mm ball nose bit] Further along with the finishing pathway…in this case the machine is running in offset mode… moving around the s...
Yup – I couldn’t wait. I took that little bit of purple heart and Peruvian walnut and chopped it into little tiny pieces. The center is glued. I was dry fitting the outside border. Thought I would snap a work in progress picture. I didn’t get to do much lumber-jocking this week but I did repair the dryer, sliding glass door tack and van. I’ll take my little bit of progress and be thankful. I think I’ll be able to do a little good this weekend but my woo...
Somethin I’ve been fiddlin with in the spare time I don’t have…. lol. Plus, it’s really experimental. It will be a handle of sorts, I hope….....It’s a piece o Walnut, split in half, with a piece o Oak laminated in the middle. The experiment is about the clear epoxy. A shout-out to him, goes here…. Superdave. He did a small project a while back with it, and he gave me the idea for it. Thnx, I appreciate all your projects. Anyway, it’s a jewel tha...
I’m going to use this blog post for my wood species wish list for some recommended types especially useful for making scale furniture. I find that I source information on the internet and promptly forget it once I come across an opportunity to use it…)Anyone who knows a great source for any of these can feel free to chime in with a link or connection to any of these materials. I’m going to post them one by one as I source, use and then evaluate my scale experience with the...

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...
