On the Mill #5: Urban Forestry

04-02-2014 10:51 PM by ScottShaeffer | 10 comments »

“Urban Forestry” is the care of trees growing in or around a city. Most of these trees (millions of them) were planted by humans (land developers, landscapers, individuals, governments, etc.) so there are a huge variety of species that wouldn’t otherwise grow there. In the Denver Metro Area, there are hundreds of thousands of Black Walnut trees for example. Walnut is not a native tree and really doesn’t belong here, but put them all together, and we’ve go...

Pin Router Jig

03-21-2014 08:47 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

A while ago I put up a project where I made some straight wooden track, compatible with Brio and Learning Curve (Thomas) track. Since then, I have kept in the back of my mind how I might easily and cheaply make curved track, switches, and more easily form the male and female ends (without buying expensive, specialized router bits.) I believe I have found the answer. A pin router jig. I first learned about these from a video by Jim Steinbrecher, and later by a much clearer and concise ...

Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #2: Where no flowers grow during winter, The colouring.

03-20-2014 03:54 AM by koraile | 5 comments »

As you see, i have finaly come to the last part of the flower carving. I have the rough shape, and started the last part of sanding and detail shaping. I have always loved this part when it comes to these types of carvings, when at last the image i have had in my head takes form and gets Sharp, its like tuning a lense. The Picture finaly gets Clear, at this stage i have a hard time letting go. On this Project im working in the livingroom, you might have noticed :) Its cosy in my li...

Rewarewa wood

02-23-2014 09:06 AM by kaurikid | 5 comments »

Just got back from New Zealand and as usual when I travel I check out the local wood situation this time Rewarewa wood took my eye. So I brought some back and have since done a little more research but surprisingly on Lumberjocks there doesn’t seem to be much about it or its uses. The photo’s show by cutting it at different angles the figure changes dramatically which is rather nice. Photo 3 shows the surface after a wipe of linseed. If anyone has worked this wood I’d be pleased t...
