Carving #2: Linenfold 2 of 4

1854 days ago by willwall | 6 comments »

Once you have your profile, draw your profile. It’s important that you cut the curves with your gouges. This way, it will be easier to carve the profile of the linen. Note: Just do the half, your drawing will be symmetrical. Walnut and oak were normally used at gothic age. And then, on the table saw, remove the wood at the strategic point. When the depth and position of the blade is OK, do one pass, then flip your board and do another pass. After, just remove the wood...

This recently recognized problem has already devastated black walnut trees west of the Rocky Mountains over the past 10-15 years. The disease is caused by a newly discovered fungus that is carried to trees by the walnut twig beetle...

Wood IDs #4: mystery ornamental branch identified

1856 days ago by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

After some online snooping, it looks like the branch I found the other day is of the Juglandaceae Family, which is to say it’s a walnut. Here’s some evidence… The chambers in the middle, seen here in my sample comprise what is known as a “chambered pith” (a pith being the center of a tree/branch/twig). Here's how it happens (in elaborate, if brief science talk). When it comes to chambered piths, it seems the only two choices spoken of online are black walnut (...

1856 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

Pelicans #1: Sanding Pads and Pelicans

1858 days ago by Allison | 13 comments »

I am working on a couple Pelicans that I am hoping to incorporate into a “big picture” somehow. They are done completely in hardwoods and I was thinking of perhaps sharing how I sanded little pieces such as these. I have already started and as you can see I still have pencil marks for an eye on one. However when I brought my camera into the shop to show how I was going to sand these lil’ pieces I noticed how dirty, (dusty, sawdust, etc.) my little sanding pads were. They are...

Walnut TV Stand

1867 days ago by Kevin Depies | 5 comments »

Hello, this is my first post on LJ’s! Here is the current project I am working on – a TV stand / entertainment center… whatever you want to call it : ) I’m a little further along than these photos, which were taken a couple weeks ago. This is basically it though, minus an adjustable shelf for the opening in the middle and some handles for the doors, both of which are made now. I am looking for ideas on what type of finish to use on this project as finish...

random #4: homemade walnut pegs

1870 days ago by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

(don’t miss the video at the bottom!) I’m currently building a rack for lumber shorts and cutoffs under 3’ in length. I wanted to do a bit more than slap together Home Depot plywood and solids this time, though. One small ‘extra’ will be exposed pegs through the sidewalls to help support the thin ply shelves (they’re also getting #0 biscuits – I like overkill). These pegs will be flush-sawn, sanded, and finished with the rest of the rack, and most ...
