Free Wood #6: Curb Score

09-20-2016 02:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 15 comments »

I vowed to myself that if a certain dresser were still on the curb on the morning of trash collection that I’d grab the drawers for myself. If I had a pickup truck, I might have grabbed the carcass as well. The tops are often of use. As I began breaking the drawers down, I noticed on one drawer front that someone had put the holes for the drawer pulls in the wrong spot and had filled them in. Oops. The drawer fronts have a veneer, but the core looks to be solid popla...

Easiest Anvil Stand

03-15-2017 10:29 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I needed a stand for my anvil. I had just taken apart my workbench with all the 2×6 material and decided to use that. After cutting all the pieces to 23” I screwed 6 sets side by side using pocket holes. After I had all those done I screwed them all together in a laminate design. I flipped these back and forth to add strength so the pocket holes were not all on one side. Check out the video and subscribe.

Home on the Hill - Intarsia Woodworking

03-12-2013 02:08 PM by Chris Mobley | 2 comments »

Creating custom intarsia woodworking often finds its best design from a story. One stormy day in April, not very different from any other day, tragedy struck in Alabama. My father was out for the morning working as usual. He decided to come home early because there were some reports that bad weather was coming. He could not have gotten home at any better of a time. As he pulled into the driveway, he had just enough time to find his wife, grab a few neighbors, and get into the panic room i...

Men's Valet Golf Tournament Prizes #1: The Prototype

09-17-2010 02:21 PM by WoodSimplyMade | 1 comment »

I posted a few days ago the prototype design I came up with for a men’s valet station. These were to be prizes to be presented at an upcoming golf tournament in November. I asked you all for input and comments on the design and of course I can always count on you guys just for that. The feedback and suggestions were great and have allowed me to modify the design to make it even better. For those of you who have not seen my submission here is the prototype that I had you all comment o...

Shop Tour/Axe Handle Sneak Peak

04-12-2013 01:44 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have had a broad head axe sitting around in my shop for almost a year now. It is sad to see that thing just sitting there. The other night I decided to go ahead and starting shaping a piece of wood for the handle. In this video I take you on the “other side” of the wood shop, the smithing area. While giving a short tour I show the axe handle and what tools I’m using to get it to it’s shape. Enjoy!

"Evergreens of Ages Now" --by RusticWoodArt

05-08-2007 01:56 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Evergreens of Ages Now ....and as i stood gazing into the heavens, i was re-minded of some whisperings that had once passed before, “is not the right to critique with gawker’s of leavens, what keeps one from entering through the door”.... —-while in the midst of hearing cloudy swirls, goes my thought-full yesterday’s of waundering walkabouts, and to my wondering eye in need of joy-full sounding purls, comes the awakened dreams within of knowing my inner-clo...

WoodWriting Haiku Thursday's --by RusticWoodArt #10: "Beholder of Art" --by RusticWoodArt

Beholder of Art ....art-full to be-hold, i gather what surrounds me, adroit nature i am….—by flp And so I was sitting this morning looking over some photos I had taken recently outside and out of my landscape of framework, came these pictures speaking to me. Imagination is a wonder-full gift, and when coupled with writing, the words of the soul can be heard, which has caused me to spend a rich time here at my desk with pencil and paper, writing out note-full stories for futu...
