turnings #6: two natural-edge jacaranda bowls

08-15-2009 01:02 PM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I didn’t take process shots, but I rough-turned these two over the last week or so from the halves of a single jacaranda log resawed in half. Each was bagged immediately in its own shavings to slow drying and resist checking, though one has checked a bit anyway. Once they’ve dried enough to stop moving, I’ll chuck them up again and turn them back to round, and refine their shapes. I still consider myself in early training-mode, and as such, these are just more training piece...

Home made Cyclone system video (ENG version)

10-13-2013 09:33 PM by CarpintHero | 1 comment »

This is (again) my homemade vacuum cyclone system. I added this to my blog but the video was in spanish. Now I have decided to have the english version, so … excuse my poor english :) It consits of two empty paint buckets and some vacuum hoses. Most of the sawdust and particles stay in the buckets and only a little portion of the fine dust goes to the vacuum bag. Keeping the vacuum bag empty, means that you can use the same bag for months without having to buy them, and also...

I've got wood!

07-28-2012 01:42 PM by BritBoxmaker | 29 comments »

Just for those of you in the States who think your wood is expensive. The little beauty in the foreground is African Ebony. 32cm x 5.5cm sq’. It cost me £25GBP, thats about $40US.Bringing up the rear is a piece of Pau Amarello at a relatively modest £3, $4.80. Ebony is very difficult to get over here in anything bigger than turning blank sizes. Unless you are a banker/oil baron.

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" --by RusticWoodArt

05-20-2007 01:53 PM by frank | 5 comments »

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…. ...
