Found Wood

10-25-2007 12:26 PM by Dekker | 10 comments »

Today is a good day, and it’s only 6:00am Just this morning picked up two small boxes of leftover cherry hardwood flooring cutoffs. They are 2-6 inches long, with a couple 2-footers. I got them through my local FreeCycle organization. I had put out a “wanted” poster for leftover hardwood flooring, fully expecting to get some oak, but the first response I had was for 3/4” t&g cherry! I don’t really know what I’ll do with them yet. Absolute worst ca...

Wood Movement Calculator

10-21-2007 07:37 PM by Karson | 3 comments »

There has been a lot of discussion on this site and probably others about wood movement. How much does wood move What about quartersawn lumber Does flat sawn lumber move more than Quarter Sawn The US Government has created a Wood Handbook that has lots of tables but how does that become useful? I took the tables and created an Excel Spreadsheet to calculate the wood movement. But, I came across a wood Movement Calculator that you can download and run on your computer. This pro...

"Kokedera Temples in the Woods" --by RusticWoodArt

10-21-2007 05:40 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Kokedera Temples in the Woods And so while on my way to work yesterday morning, I decided to do a drop off from the mainframe of time and go for a short walkabout. Haha,....I really have to laugh at myself now in what I just said, since who ever heard of a ‘short’ walkabout? I sometimes read the stories of Aborigines and how the young men start this feat while yet young ….and will often go for months at a time. Anyways getting back to my story and trying to not be dist...

"Live in the woods....Wood Art" --by RusticWoodArt

10-20-2007 04:06 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Live in the woods….Wood Art Well here we go….while out last Saturday working in the woods, I happened to be down in a place that does not get into my normal forest travels. I was down in this area last fall cutting trees for this winter’s burning and happened to be down here not long ago looking at some trees that had recently fallen, due to storm winds. Last Saturday was spent cleaning those trees up and while on a break that morning, I decided to waunder around. Foun...

"Dis-Membered Barkin' on a Pine Slab" --by RusticWoodArt

10-19-2007 02:15 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Dis-Membered Barkin’ on a Pine Slab ....ended my day the other evening removing some more bark from a pine slab I’m trying to get dried out, in the faster then usual manner since this is one I want to start workin’ on around January. Much of my time spent outside now is divided between cutting new trees for next year, cutting slabs for future furniture and ‘wood art’ that has to be processed for drying a year to two years down the road. While then finding the ...

Project - Lever-Action Boxes #1: Committing Myself

10-17-2007 12:14 PM by Dekker | 3 comments »

Well, I’ve finally gone and done it. After blogging about books on boxes , I got the itch to make some boxes! I haven’t delved extensively into boxes, and it has been ages, so it’s like starting new again. My wife makes jewellery that she sells online and at craft shows. She has a show sometime in late October, and another in early November, and I thought it would be a great idea to offer some jewellery boxes next to the jewellery. I therefore have a motivational deadline...

"De-Barking a Cherry Slab" --by RusticWoodArt

10-17-2007 05:03 AM by frank | 7 comments »

De-Barking a Cherry Slab ....well there you have it, so the question that remains is hidden in a shroud of mystery; “who did the de-barkin’ on the cherry tree that our famous boy wonder and first president of the United States cut down….? So it happened that after my last trip up north, checking on suppliers of wood slabs, for some furniture I’m contemplating, that I ran across this piece of cherry slab at a no-refuse price….so if any want to guess first, I...

10-16-2007 01:59 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Wood Ballet Dancing in the FreeHand And so it’s time, time to get back on track here and answer some questions, plus try to give an understanding to any and all that want to try this type of slabbin’ at wood. One of the issuing egresses that make my projects so long, is the time and effort I take in the planning of the project from start to finish. I really do try and make use of telling the truth, that when I say ‘hand made’ the ‘wood art’ that I co...
