What Is Burl?

690 days ago by OregonBurls | 9 comments »

What Is Burl? I have discovered that this question is the most searched question for burls on the internet. Over 140,000 times world wide per month. So I read what Wikipedia’s definition is and found out that they are not clear and in some details are wrong in their definition. So I am going to attempt to clear the muddy waters. First of all Wikipedia says: “A burl (American English) or bur or burr (used in all non-US English speaking countries) is a tree growth in which the grain ha...

Learning Curve #11: Multi-tasking

2666 days ago by MsDebbieP | 9 comments »

Thanks to Martin and his magic shuffle button my need to multi-task has taken on a new urgency. Today as I sat here, caught in the trap of the LJ Addiction, I also contemplated how I was going to put a few pieces of willow together for a box – and what purpose it would have. I decided that I would just have to go cut the wood and glue it together whatever way would fit and it would become a “just is” box, for whatever purpose it might have in the future. After getting ...

My workflow always decreases towards the end ...

1785 days ago by xylosapiens | 8 comments »

Although all my previous designing, my efforts to get the piece of furniture to the very best end I can, usually met lots of minor cuestions to be solved, before finishing the job to my complete satisfaction. And this is the reason why the work sticks to the bench towards the end. Actually I’m never 100% satisfy. That’s the price I pay for the personal discoverys that represent my designs. Others don’t find it that much important, but it i...

Milling Cherry

2137 days ago by James Lango | 8 comments »

Does anyone know what is the MAX width of certain hardwoods? The most accomodating to resist warp and cup? An old guy once told me that he was able to mill Elm 14” wide boards because Elm is very stable and resists warp/cup. Should you stick around the 4-6” range for Cherry? Or can you go wider?Different woods have certain characteristics and someone out there knows.. Any advice? thanks

Build a Steam Box

368 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. 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...

734 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest.

The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...

Shadow Casting Lamp

686 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

This shadow casting lamp creates a cool effect to any room by casting a shadow on a wall of any scene you’d like to create in the lamps silhouette panels. For this project I used horses. The front of the lamp shows a horse in a natural calm state on all 4’s . And the frosted front panel of glass gives a nice subtle tone of light to illuminate the room. The back of the lamp has a silhouette of a horse raring on it’s hind legs. This is the side that casts a shadow on...
