Welcome to LumberJocks, We have pro’s here and wannabees. We have rustic and stuff that didn’t start out to be rustic but might be now. And, some beautiful (Not saying that rustic is not beautiful) furniture pieces.

It’s good to see someone else from KY participating. Where is Morning View exactly?

Morning View is in Kenton County, about 25 miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio.
I live in a Sears Kit Home (circa 1928) at an old hunting and fishing club located along the Licking River, which runs into the Ohio River. I’m surrounded by hundreds of acres of primitive river bottom woods, fields and streams.

Welcome Aboard Randy. Sounds like a great place to live. Do you harvest your own timber?

Hello Bill:

I mainly collect my own rustic materials such as twigs, roots, vines, and bark.
I use mostly reclaimed materials such as barnwood, used bourbon barrels, and old furniture pieces. I buy some mill scraps from a local artisan sawmill.

I make or blend all of my own finishes based upon traditional recipes and my own formulations. I was a Clinical Chemist, turned computer consultant and professional writer.

Rustic furniture making is an old tradition in my family.

Just found your site. Love your projects. The bark ones are great. First time I’ve seen bark put to such good work. Love the canes! All your work is very creative. Thanks for the view.

Do you know of any kind of finish that you can put on wood that would compair to a Urushi finish and how would you go about apply it. I am looking for something that has the same kind of look .

Congratulations on your upcoming 3rd anniversary at Lumber Jocks. Thanks for helping make LJ a great place to visit and happy anniversary!

Btw: You are the 1st person that I sent an anniversary note to. I just realize that it’s been a year since I started reminding regular posters in LJ of the impending anniversary.
