Just had to add my own free wood gloat. Last fall a friend of a friend decided to clean out his workshop. My friend called me and asked if I was interested. I couldn’t get there fast enough. We loaded up in my truck and hit the road. Let me say first I thought I might get 2 or 3 boards out of this trip but decided what the heck. We get there and talk to the guy and he’s decided he doesn’t have the room for everything he had and we started loading my truck up. And kept loadin...
This will be the best investment that our clients will ever make, with multitouch technology, drafting, as well as designing tools along with a custom built in computer, a Wacom 21ux cintiq, monitor recording speakers, touch opened drawers and a desk equipped with adequate enough space. The executive desk should be well designed but should also incorporate a executive, modern environment. The desk should have ample enough space for designing, pre-production audio engineering and client pres...

Few early photos of the Zebrawood and Quartersawn White oak frame some progress photos …sorry but the next bunch of photos were lost …so the next set in this blog series will be on a nearly completed frame …
Well, the centerpieces are coming along fine. They are glued up and will sit in the clamps overnight. The next step is to put a clear coating over them. Some other projects I’m looking at doing is a candy stand that I saw in a book and a display box for some hot wheel cars. Of course these will be another blog. I post pics when I’m done with the centerpieces.

If you not want to go thru the hassle of finding and cutting your own you can alway buy from me. LOLThanksGreg Thanks Todd on the tip for getting the video on this post.
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....
