History #4: Egypt… Rebuilding Wood Culture

12-15-2014 06:08 PM by VobliX | 0 comments »

From the time of ancient Egypt, the country has pioneered the use of wood in design, even though it’s a country of no forests and almost no woodlands. In a time when modern has become a little overused, ASK Magazine has found a modern day example reviving the country’s rich craftsmanship, especially when it comes to wood. CAT Egypt is one such factory which believes in adding value in every home by adding wood and design to add quality to every square meter of property you have. Sometimes ...

Who knew?

11-12-2014 06:11 AM by OldWrangler | 13 comments »

Guys, I’ve shown you in the past what Clorox does to Wenge. Today I stumbled on to another wood that benefits from a 2 hour soak in straight Clorox. Take a look. I’m sure it has some applications. I haven’t put a finish on this but it is only gonna make it better. This wood is Lacewood…..look what it does. The dark side is how it comes from a lumber dealer. This piece was from Woodcraft. The light side is after an emersion in bleach for 2 hours, washed w...

Just in time for Halloween! Build this easy made candy dish in the shape of a coffin. after your base is in it’s final dimension (measurements included in video), there is no more measuring-even with the different angles. Check out the video and see how it is made. Please subscribe for more woodworking videos AND blacksmithing videos. And if you want to watch some nonprofessional welding, watch this video below as I create a skeleton out of some scrap metal around the shop.

Time to make some changes to the shop. #11: My Name is Angie and I am a Wood Hoarder... Or am I???

10-26-2014 07:49 PM by AngieO | 23 comments »

Hello…. my name is Angie and I am a wood hoarder. Wait… there may be some truth to that. But what is a wood hoarder really? Is it storing piles of wood like this….? Or this? I did at least take the wood from the first picture and organize it. Or maybe one might call me a wood hoarder because I used a box trailer to move some “stuff” out of my shop. And instead of moving said “stuff”... it ended up sitting in front of my ...

Finding Wood

10-18-2014 01:49 AM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto]Where do you find wood that isn’t plain pine boards and studs from the local lumberyard? If you don’t live near a furniture supply house or don’t want to pay for wood for small projects, do like I do. I live in a mid-sized town in the rural corner of New Jersey. When I’m out driving here and there I keep an eye out along the streets, mainly in my own town, for broken furniture. A lot of folks throw out broken chairs, but I don’t ha...

A Strategy for Woodworking #26: Wood & Water

09-16-2014 12:48 AM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

Don’t be afraid of wood & water. Wood loves the stuff. Most of the tree is water when it’s standing. It’s why they’re so heavy when they come down. It’s all that water inside of them. Once I had a 1/2” thick maple table top, 20” square, all shaped and sanded. I decided to raise the grain and sand it off. Wet sanding I call it, although I wait for the water to dry and just sand off the fuzz raised up by it. Well I wet down this top and it cupped...

Minor Wood Score

09-13-2014 05:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

A friend of mine offered me an old dresser that they were throwing out, so I headed on down to fetch it. The dresser was old, but not handmade. The drawer fronts were curved and therefore no use to me. I saved the knobs though. Disassembling it I noticed a few oddities in its construction. The side panels, which are typically made of plywood are actually very thin boards. They are also flexible and somewhat delicate. The top might be one solid piece of wood, but with breadboard ends and a...
