Quilted Walnut!? - 0 replies

I bought a pallet of rejected hardwood blanks for gun stocks. About one third is common maple, one third figured maple, and one third walnut. Here’s photo of a walnut blank which has an edge with birdseye or burl. I’m not sure which one is technically correct. What really surprised me was the quilted figure in the walnut. These blank...

It Pays to Be Friendly - 3 replies

Two years ago I bartered for three BIG logs from a sycamore that blew down in a storm. In return, I cut the rest of the tree into firewood. As a gesture of thanks, I made the owners an end grain cutting board, which surprised and pleased them greatly. I got a call yesterday from that same person, who now has some walnut he was given for firew...

Don't Buy a 6-inch Dado Set - 2 replies

Years ago I bought a 6-inch Freud dado set. It works fine, to a point. Now that I use a sled to cut dadoes, they cannot be deep enough on some projects because the sled is of 3/4 plywood and the six-inch dadoes rise less than 1.5 inches from the table top. I am making some 3×3 maple table legs for a butcher block, and am “eating away&...

Spalted Hickory Crotch - 2 replies

I almost burned this, but then decided to spend half an hour salvaging what I could. I first flattened the piece as much as possible with my band saw. Then I put it through the drum sander to get it uniform and ended up with a 3/16th piece as shown. I am going to use it for a box lid insert, shaping the frame of the lid so that I don’t...

Need Woodcarving Bits - 3 replies

Does someone have a name and source for bits that would be used to carve out a free-form bowl from a block of wood? It could also be a flat carving blade which would fit a compact grinder. Thanks in advance. Dale

New Cherry Board - 11 replies

Here’s one of the many boards sawn from four logs of the dying cherry tree taken from my property. We QS’d two of them and flat sawed the other two for door panels. It took over three hours to saw the four logs and load them onto a long-bed pickup and a small trailer. Then it took another three hours to unload it all and sticker ...

Cupped Walnut Slab - 6 replies

I have a walnut slab, 5/4 thick, four feet long, and tapered from 20 to 26 inches in width. I want to make a small table top, but it’s cupped. Across the wide end, the cup is 1/2 inch deep. Across the narrow width, it’s 1/4 inch. With the best side up, the cup makes a “smile” rather than a “frown.” My thoug...

Fine Craft in Seattle? - 0 replies

I am visiting friends in Seattle and want to look at some local woodworking galleries. Anyone know of any in the greater Seattle that would have furniture, carvings, or specialty items? How about art pottery? I appreciate any suggestions.
