Wood Collecting #1: International Wood Collectors Society

05-31-2009 02:57 PM by mmh | 2 comments »

If you are interested in wood working, then chances are high that you just can’t get enough of different samples or various species of woods, or even the same wood with different graining. Each species of wood is so unique and the warmth that it reflects as having been a living tree is always amazing to view. As a craftsperson, I can only hope to unveil the beauty in each piece I create. This brings to mind that many wood lovers have a collection. It may be a simple and humble col...

Turning Chess Pieces #6: Kings

02-22-2008 10:47 PM by Chessnut | 6 comments »

Hello again and welcome back to the chess corner! Today’s topic is turning kings for a chess set.The height and base diameter of the king is the cornerstone for the rest of the pieces. All pieces get smaller both in height and base diameter than the king. I might do another installment on this topic and show the flow of the chess pieces in relation to one another and how to create the “feeling” this is a set and that they belong next to each other. Kings typ...

Shadows of Moonlight Dance ....in the mornings glow of exalted beauty, the mountains that so surround my showing, glistened with the dewish sheen of refined rhapsody, while the forest beckoned to me of distant flowering…. —-”come to me my love” was heard by one such as i, as i paused for a moment before the gap in yonder wall, walking through the glens of depth with seeing eye,i noticed how the trees all spread their arms in response to an upward call…. ...

found wood #14: Inside Jacaranda

08-17-2009 11:29 AM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I’ve done some smaller things in Jacaranda lately, but what does the larger stuff look like inside? I wanted to do some larger bowl work and other things, so I went to one my larger limbs and cut it into some pieces. They’re simple, but pretty inside, so I thought I’d share. It’s not very common a wood for most woodworkers, I think. The piece is the large one front and center on top of the pile seen here (and blogged about here): Here’s me sawing it up ...

turnings #3: European Olive champagne glass

07-31-2009 03:37 AM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

Not a drinker, but I still appreciate the form of champagne glasses. I had a chunk of completely unsplit European olive from my pile of blanks, about the right length and diameter when turned to cylindrical to let me try my hand at something beyond plates and bowls, even though I’ve far from mastered them yet. I put the block between centers, turned it cylindrical, then swapped the head center for my Oneway Talon chuck, and used the tail center to support it a bit as I carved the out...
