Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....
Latest Update.The Woodorking Show people have given us a booth at the WoodWorking Show at the Sacramento Convention Center on Nov 13, 14, & 15.

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

I made this wood-burned paddle for my mother-in-law/father-in-law’s living room in like, 2002, I think. I took a lot of photos of it, and I couldn’t bring myself to choose only six for a project post. Plus, this is so old, it’s better as a blog. I just used a standard burning tool, with no fancy attachments… just a fine point. I love to wood-burn! It’s hanging in their living room under a shelf with a ship on it. I hope you like it! :) ...
Well folks, it has been quite a while since I’ve been able to get on here and talk about the project. If you haven’t read any of the previous blogs, this is a wine rack that I built for my brother’s wedding. If you want the basic construction, see the prior posts. From here on is the little decoration details… I hope I don’t have too many pictures ;). I think I’ll let the pictures do some of the talking for me but I want to capture the whole process....
