"Birds Eye Maple" --by RusticWoodArt

06-06-2007 02:47 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Birds Eye Maple ....well just a short blog story today as I’m heading out soon to get my butt in high gear. I’ve been keeping busy around the shop lately with the many projects of woodworking as come my way, a counter top in process, some pieces, (actually three) of furniture and then there’s that three legged piece of maple that I have put up on the third floor of the barn-shop that has started whispering my name for attention. Why just yesterday there I was up on the...

"The Silence of Moments" --by RusticWoodArt

The Silence of Moments ....this passion of the wood that sits before my eye as i, has never stopped sharing the breathing of my circular quest, and were i to give momentum to praise found in heavens sky, then just so shall be also be this silence that bequeaths my best…. the silence of moments such as this, there is known the more of power, then all the words that have ever been spoken to diss, and so i opened my mouth and tasted an hour of flower…. And als...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #6: Tuesdays with Schroeder (and company)

08-14-2007 07:57 AM by Douglas Bordner | 14 comments »

We are off to Oregon to visit Schroeder's shop. The Gnarly Wood Shoppe is a man’s shop (well actually two to three and a dog, according to the sign). From the taxidermy to the office art, it’s pretty clear that this is a manly environment.And this is what they make there. The über table and the über Thorsten side table. I’ve made jewelry boxes that took days to make that don’t come up to that drawer. And that book-matched crotch-grained top, breadbo...

"Wood of Acquisition" by RusticWoodArt

08-14-2007 12:43 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Wood of Acquisition ….in this place of all that surrounds me here, i am infatuated with the beauty that comes from wood, where one can go from being pressed hard to circumvent tasteless wood journeys, into the artistic imaginations of finding my place as ‘wood art’.... —-and so with that thought in mind, slowly i arise from the floor-space, where i have been doing time in my work-space, as i push up from this place of knee-space…. —-stretching now ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #73: What Is Your Size of Wood Art

04-23-2010 02:07 AM by frank | 3 comments »

What is Your Size of Wood Art…. ….or does size matter when it comes to working the wood? What is the size you think of when working with wood? And so I have put together a few photos of how I often see into the wood. Trees come in all shapes and sizes and what I do with them often determines their final proportion. Now that I think upon that last sentence I am not sure about the use of the words….’final proportion’. How often have I my-self often received some p...

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...
