How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 38 comments »

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....

Knitting box #8: Slides, Knobs, Top Separation

06-19-2009 05:31 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

I set up the router table to make the slots for the slide rails. I just used a 1/2” straight bit to make the groove and I sized my rails to fit later. So here I used a chisel to square up the fronts of the grooves that I just routed. This is not really necessary it will just make it easier to adjust the drawers forward or backward if they don’t line up just right, Which they didn’t in the end. I had to remove just a bit more towards the front on one side so that they ...

Knitting box #6: Twin through tenons

05-25-2009 11:57 PM by Luke | 4 comments »

I started by marking out all the cut lines with a marking gauge. I have one of those simple wood pass through another wood with a thumb screw and a little pin, ones… so….I chiseled out the sections in the maple down to the lines after cutting the shoulders with the dovetail saw. I then transfered the tenons to the backside of the zebrawood with the marking gauge again. Then chiseled around the marks and worked on taking out the material with the chisels. A mortiser would be really...

Knitting box #5: cutting the drawer tails

05-25-2009 11:10 PM by Luke | 2 comments »

I’ve just finished cutting the tails out with the hand saw. Here I am working on chiseling the tails to the lines that I marked out with a marking guage. I had some troubles getting them to fit with no gaps and realized that I hadn’t chiseled enough of an angle out so that the edges fit snugly. After doing that they fit great. I have the faces of both drawers matched so that it hopefully looks like they come from the same board. I marked inside the joint with numbers so that I kne...

Knitting box #1: Getting the rough shape of the box

05-21-2009 12:35 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

So I started with 8/4 zebra wood that I bought off my brother. He builds bass guitars for a living and had some left over wood. I resawed the wood down to about 5/8” on my craftsman 12”(given to me by my father in law) with a Woodslicer 3-4, 1/2” blade from highland woodworking… Amazing blade, if you have a bandsaw and need a resaw blade for it check them out because it cuts like a hot knife through butter compared to ANY other blade I’ve used yet. https://www.hi...

I'm making me some clocks...

09-26-2008 03:39 AM by TheKingInYellow | 2 comments »

I think I have slightly over-reached for my first project, but here we go! First the gear in my garage shop that I have to work with: - Ridgid TS2410LS folding table saw with Freud 60T crosscut blade, Dimar Woodpecker thin kerf ripping blade and stabilizers- Ryobi tabletop drill press- Ryobi 10” sliding compound miter saw- Canadian Tire 10a Router w/ table The router is a piece of junk, but I’m happy with the TS so far, and have no complaints about the miter or drill pres...

Pen Turner's Swap #3: The giant box - with pictures

04-23-2008 04:06 AM by Nils | 4 comments »

Actually, the box isn’t “giant” – but it’s jammed full, and pretty heavy.The first thing I find when I open it is Tim’s extensive instructions to the swappers.And then a sheet for each of us to fill in what we added and what we removed. Finally, after the ream of paper at the top, here are the blanks! The box started with five blanks, five pens, and five pen kits. By the time I got it, it still has five pen kits, but nine pens, and 42! blanks.I...

Sidetable #3: Almost there

10-10-2007 05:04 AM by Damian Penney | 21 comments »

Here are the pics of the work in progress, amost there :) Looks pretty much how I imagined it would! Top is a bit dusty here Another view The stretchers are attached using Miller Dowels, I’m a big fan of them and use them all the time. I’m going to add the pieces to strengthen those rails tomorrow. Left some areas unfinished to get good glue adhesion but couldn’t wait to get that first coat of poly/oil on :) Another five coats, then some oil/wax to finish and it&...

Sidetable #1: Sketchup Renderings

09-17-2007 07:48 AM by Damian Penney | 6 comments »

So I’m making a small side table from some scrap I had lying around. Some zebrawood left over from the box and some walnut from the console table I started building before these renderings but figured the blog would flow better if I started with these. So this is the plan I have the top made, and the legs. But I’m having a hard time adding the small rail on the short side, it’s only about 5/16” wide so I’m not exactly sure how to join it to the l...
