"Chigiritsugi used in Wood Joinery" --by RusticWoodArt

2626 days ago by frank | 8 comments »

Chigiritsugi used in Wood Joinery ....’chigiritsugi’ is the eastern Japanese name, while here in the west we prefer; ‘spline’, ‘flying dutchman’ and ‘butterfly’ joint….and then also I may have missed or forgotten a name. While starting out here I will just insert an observation that I have used and noted over time in the study of western and eastern thought in woodworking and ‘wood joinery’. Understanding wood goes a ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #54: What Lights Up An English Barn

1834 days ago by frank | 9 comments »

What Lights Up An English Barn Well I believe that it doesn’t take much to get me talking about barns….or might I add English Barns. I was asked to post some pictures of my barn, but how could I ever just show some pictures without also going into some barn terminology? From the picture above I am standing on the third floor of the barn….or if some-one is counting the cellar also, then I guess one could say the fourth floor. My wife bartered some homemade jams for ...

Hey, Free Wood!

1629 days ago by Eric | 3 comments »

When I did some woodturning a few months ago, I turned a chisel handle from a sweet gum tree that still had the bark on it and everything. I thought, “Hmm, I wonder what kind of wood might be available to me where I live in Malaysia.” I don’t have a lathe, but still – that shouldn’t stop one from trying to make stuff out of long cylindrical pieces of tree. Right? I’m not really into making rustic furniture – I just want to take “rustic wood̶...

Screw Rehab: The New Head

1539 days ago by Eric | 1 comment »

A complete stranger might think I’m bitter about being treated for drug dependency or something…no, no, not that kind of rehab… Today I glued up the block that will eventually be the new head of my old screw. Just for fun, I decided to laminate a piece of pine in the middle of two pieces of kapur. I don’t know what this might do as far as wood movement, as far as laminating softwood in between hardwood – I have no idea but I don’t care! It’s fu...

The Wood Thief

553 days ago by Chris Mobley | 13 comments »

The Wood Thief – MaggieThis past weekend, I realized I was being robbed by the wood thief. I began several new projects for clients and friends. One piece in particular, has a significant amount of very small pieces of wood. Each piece is cut out, sanded, and put together like a jig saw puzzle. I turned around to do some sanding and when I came back to my work bench, I notice one of my pieces that I had just completed was missing. After looking under my workbench and around the area,...

Got some scrap wood and a railroad spike? Make a drawknife....

444 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Drawknives. They can be expensive or cheap. They are used by green woodworkers and chairmakers (for the spindles). You can use them for taking bark off trees as well. With only a $1 railroad spike and some scrap lumber you can make your own drawknife. Also view a different way of placing handles on your homemade tools tangs. It must be noted that I do not condone taking railroad spikes off of tracks. It is illegal and you can get in serious trouble for theft and/or killed by a big freaking ...

2143 days ago by frank | 5 comments »

Wood Mentation of Today ....what is this prise that burns within my being,to find the almost of what a-waits-a-round the next bend,by now i should have learned why the sweetness of your voice calls,as within the depths of where i have often run to hide from your face…. ....i once remember standing in the shadow of a tree greater than i,while the limbs of your covering shared with my-self a notion of leaves,fire colored leaves you gave to me to light the candle that had gone ou...

My first Cutting board

818 days ago by wlojr | 1 comment »

I have been inspired by many cutting boards, that I have seen on LJ, I used some oak scraps that my father gave me and some walnut scraps I got from a cabinet shops discard bin, I cut the boards with my radial arm saw(no table saw yet) and then glued them up with titebond 3 glue, its the only glue Lowes had that said food safe, after they were good and solid about 2 hours later, I ran them through my planer a few times to get them to a uniform thickness. I then routed them with a roundove...

"Artistic Contrast" --by RusticWoodArt

2656 days ago by frank | 1 comment »

Artistic Contrast ....from out of time i have come, to gather my-self for an outward expression of mastery, and what if from the heart of eternal being i am spun, left even now with this after-taste of scorched cosmic cautery…. —-i was the one set adrift upon golden threads of scarlet inheritance, just as that branch of the wu t’ung tree gave me a place of rest, while these mountains that so surround bow in abasiance, and was i the one to call the wind into this sphere...
