Design flaws and desperation!

09-19-2011 07:07 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Well for a while now my wife has been really wanting a hall table to put ummmm, well hallway stuff on. I have for some reason been really struggling with the design. At first she wanted it to have a shelf on the bottom to hold other odds-n-ends. After playing around with it and throwing wood here and there, it was just not going to work out. The bottom shelf would have been a very tiny 6” deep. What can I say though, I didn’t give up trying to build it. After I got some of the leg...

Wood Stories of a Forgotten Time ....and as i was gazing into your wooden whispery depth, i found that i became as one translated to an-other epoch, where time had slowed down to that of one continual length, while all around there was the hearing of seeing one called enoch…. —-come walk my way and i shall be a story for you to tell, tis not this sound you hear the wind brushing past your leaves, and who is there to shake your branch if not by golden fire brewed spell, till ...

'Written In and By Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

07-13-2007 02:45 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Written In and By Wood ....and so I capped the ending of last evening with a short walk in the woods, short walking is not like waundering and means I was only gone for about two hours, but then that also includes about an hour of just sitting in silence and hearing what the forest had to say. On the subject of ‘waundering’ let me just add, that all who waunder are not lost, but then some also ‘waunder’ as having slipped the veil….explanation, well maybe in an...

The Non-Electric Chair #11: Breaking out the Beech (part 1)

01-14-2009 12:48 PM by lethentymill | 2 comments »

The timber is still moist to the touch and heavy, probably about 28% moisture, but it will be easier to cut in this condition and will dry quickly with a smaller cross-section. It is time to rough-cut the components. You may remember that I have already selected and prepared pieces for the main members – the back legs. All this hand-work makes you think of efficiency in a way that you may never have thought of it before. If you have ever cycled around the countryside and taken a wrong t...

Curly Maple and Curly Cherry

08-28-2009 04:01 PM by McLeanVA | 10 comments »

I wanted to post a quick entry praising one of our own LJs poroskywood for a lumber package that he put together for me this week. I contacted him a while back to inquire about ordering some curly maple from him and found him to be a really great guy to work with. I opened the shipping boxes last night and heard the roar of tigers as the curly figuring of both cherry and maple jumped out at me. I was literally amazed. I don’t have any good lumber shops around me that balance both pri...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #2: "McCulloch Super 33" --by RusticWoodArt

09-23-2007 02:30 PM by frank | 2 comments »

McCulloch Super 33 In writing this story about “Slabbin’ at Wood’, I have thought to include stories on: 1. Safety a) ....and you will hear me talking off safety till you probably get sick of the ‘safety’ word. However with and when working with chainsaws, I am a believer that safety first on the job, will likewise take you home safely at last! b) ....I was also taught that the average audience when being talked to will need to hear the point you are m...
