Just for those of you in the States who think your wood is expensive. The little beauty in the foreground is African Ebony. 32cm x 5.5cm sq’. It cost me £25GBP, thats about $40US.Bringing up the rear is a piece of Pau Amarello at a relatively modest £3, $4.80. Ebony is very difficult to get over here in anything bigger than turning blank sizes. Unless you are a banker/oil baron.
I’m frequently asked, “What does it actually cost to make a pen?” (Mostly at arts and craft shows I am attending or participating in.) (I keep a copy at all art shows now) Here’s the list of items that I use to make a pen. The good news is that after the first pen you make they become much less expensive. Some of these items can be eliminated or something else can be substituted for what is listed. If you already have a table saw, or band saw, a drill press or other items the initial ...
If you are interested in wood working, then chances are high that you just can’t get enough of different samples or various species of woods, or even the same wood with different graining. Each species of wood is so unique and the warmth that it reflects as having been a living tree is always amazing to view. As a craftsperson, I can only hope to unveil the beauty in each piece I create. This brings to mind that many wood lovers have a collection. It may be a simple and humble col...
Hello again and welcome back to the chess corner! Today’s topic is turning kings for a chess set.The height and base diameter of the king is the cornerstone for the rest of the pieces. All pieces get smaller both in height and base diameter than the king. I might do another installment on this topic and show the flow of the chess pieces in relation to one another and how to create the “feeling” this is a set and that they belong next to each other. Kings typ...
I was suppose to have this video done 2 weeks ago, but due to children illnesses and a long overdue vacation, it got delayed. Just finished it up today. I hope you enjoy and go to my webpage for past videos and well, just to visit. Thanks guys.
This web site Talarico Hardwoods was on an e-mail that I got today. It’s a sawmill in Pennsylvania. Enjoy and drool.
Shadows of Moonlight Dance ....in the mornings glow of exalted beauty, the mountains that so surround my showing, glistened with the dewish sheen of refined rhapsody, while the forest beckoned to me of distant flowering…. —-”come to me my love” was heard by one such as i, as i paused for a moment before the gap in yonder wall, walking through the glens of depth with seeing eye,i noticed how the trees all spread their arms in response to an upward call…. ...
I’ve done some smaller things in Jacaranda lately, but what does the larger stuff look like inside? I wanted to do some larger bowl work and other things, so I went to one my larger limbs and cut it into some pieces. They’re simple, but pretty inside, so I thought I’d share. It’s not very common a wood for most woodworkers, I think. The piece is the large one front and center on top of the pile seen here (and blogged about here): Here’s me sawing it up ...
