:O) I am a bit excited. I finally have a set of GRR-Rippers in the shop. I have been wanting one for a long time. So I put together this video to show you just a couple reasons why I am pumped up about these helpful shop accessories. Not only are they keeping me safe, but they are allowing me the opportunity to perform tasks I couldn’t perform before… That in itself has got me doing backflips… lol Here is a look at the video
Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...

So i unveiled my knife handle this morning.. The curly birch was glowing.. the purple heart lookes splendid.. i think i will leave the bird cherry to a picture. After all a picture is worth 1000 words.. (swear ones) I guess the apple wood peg split it.. I knew i should have fitted it earlier..-21 but sunny…. So like the weather this morning i take a negative and go for a positive.. I can do an article on rehandling/renewing a damaged knife. After a bad start to the day with the k...

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 ...
