An Unexpected Break from Woodworking

402 days ago by Chris Mobley | 7 comments »

I had an unusual experience yesterday that is leading me to take an unexpected break from woodworking. Now, I only expect this break to last a few days, so no need to worry. The strangest things seem to happen to me, and my immediate family for that matter, that I could not resist telling the story.

1387 days ago by WoodArtbyJR | 27 comments »

We had some real interesting thoughts posted. So, I thought I would post a picture of a piece of wood and see how many correct identifications we could log. The difference in this case is I DO KNOW WHAT IT IS. Let’s just test our wood identification knowledge. This should be an easy one for you. ...

Ebonizing wood #1: carbonisation

338 days ago by Dominik Matus | 4 comments »

My schoolmate tried one way of ebonising wood which our teacher heard from someone. The essence is carbonisation in linseed oil without access of oxygen. In the proccess water from maple wood was evaporating. The result is still flexible. We think oil replaced water. Gluing is not problem.

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #18: Reflections on Beavers and Trees

2099 days ago by frank | 18 comments »

Can a worker of wood be selfish and think that it’s all about wood and that all else will just have to take care of them-selves. Well the answer is yes and no, one can be selfish and think only of their needs when going for wood, but...
