Waste of Time and Wood Today

06-13-2014 07:57 PM by Dave Rutan | 11 comments »

I think I need a new blade for my table saw. At least a blade is cheaper than buying a jointer. I had this idea that I wanted to start making a project today and I didn’t want to buy the wood. So I rummaged through some out of the way spots in my workshop and came up with two identical drawer fronts. The wood I need for the project needs to be 12 inches across and these two 8 inch drawer fronts were my best bet. Unfortunately, I’d have to glue them together edgewise. No probl...

"The Wild of the Woods" --by RusticWoodArt

The Wild of the Woods ….and so i walk the footsteps of those who precede my thinking, these are the spirit’s of rustic woodlands as found herein, and it is they who speak in an un-known tongue from the forest of living, a language that not many today have the time to learn away from the clatter…. —-clatter comes in many shapes and forms, but the duty of clatter is all-ways the same, and that is to distract one from the beauty of silence, needless to say that clat...

Wood IDs #3: Another found ornamental tree, with a mystery hole

03-17-2009 12:51 AM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

More trash pick… I mean, recycling this past Thursday night. Someone in the neighborhood threw out what in the dark after work seemed like it might be plastic, but back in my garage turned out to be something with the texture, and a bit of the overall look of a plum, with smooth brown skin that seemed to have a purplish cast to it. I think it’s either a whole small tree, or the top of a very tall larger tree, as it doesn’t seem to branch in the way a branch would. It̵...

My daughter wrote this article for my website and I thought I would share it with you all! Written By: Bonnie Bartay Some of my favorite memories as a young kid are spending time with my dad in his workshop. From a very young age, I remember playing in his shop while he worked. As an adult, I have helped my father with his construction business and now with Chris Mobley Designs. I do all of the paperwork part and even draw out plans but he does the real magic. I have never actually done...

Turning Progress

07-10-2011 05:03 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

Today was a very productive day. I had a some time to ruff turn my big black walnut blank and put it on the shelve to dry completely. There also was some time to finish my walnut root bowl and the small cherry bowl. I’m still improving my skill set with every bowl that’s finish. I must say if I look back at the first day I started turning and successfully broke a tool whiles impaling a peace of test wood into my garage wall. I’m much more comfortable with the different speed of the lathe and ...

Running With Imagination ....running with imagination is eating the opportunities of all that is before me! Come take a walk with me today….this morning down the corridors of mind, where the the dreams of opportunity are weighed on the scales of infinite grace, across from limited fate and imagination tips the scales in favor of mercy triumphing over judgment. ....gaze you, to stare down this pathway of what shall yet be, as i am giving in to the art of all that is ‘very ...
