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.
....of OutHouses and Septic’s Galore ....and so while walking through this break in a stone wall, i spied into the life of one such as i, where have all your sayings of yesterday gone, when one such as i walks into your scrapbook of life imagined images…. —-no leaf falling to the earthen floor of my domain, screamed so loud from it’s palace of branches throne, as when it settled to fathom the amazing amassing of culture exchange, that is being written as i speak...
Planes of Architect ….as from my place of sitting, i looked at you to aspire your eye, till in the moment of thought-full re-mitting, your gazing zest of life came to un-der-lie…. —-what gives this form before me aspect, twas not just yesterday you reached for heavens sky, and now we meet on different planes of architect, even then we bi-sected by in-ter-sect with questions of the how and why…. —-phantoms of a period that time has far-gotten, where crowds o...

I’ve built a significant portion of sheds, cottages, decks, installed windows, doors, siding, poured concrete, worked on asphalt, etc, etc, ad nausium. It’s all good though, Woodworking (as just one of my many hobbies) quiets a part of my soul that ...
Reflections on Beavers and Trees Out here in the woods, I am part of a whole picture where what happens with wood….also happens to all involved with wood, plus those un-in-volved with wood….hmmm, are any who are really non-existent from wood?

I know that there is already an entry on hickory but i figure that the more entries we get even if on the same wood our library will grow as everyone will present new ideas. so first off one thing that i noticed with hickory was that it chipped out a lot with router use. what i did to counter this though was take a lot of passes. even if you do take a lot of passes though you can still get chip out. also the king of chip out on hickory are the straight grained boards that are the ones that wo...
