11-20-2009 12:20 PM by degoose | 29 comments »

This project is not technically finished so I will not post as a project..This part of the blog will deal with the cutting of arcs.I basically used one of the patron jigs I developed to cut the end curves for a Baguette Board…this pivots on the circle cutting jig. Cut two lengths of contrasting or complimentary timbers… I of course chose Purple Heart and Silver Ash…Silver Ash and Tasmanian Blackwood would have also been suitable… But if all you have is Walnut and Curl...

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....

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

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...

Now the video goes; ahora si funciona el video.

09-15-2009 11:05 AM by xylosapiens | 6 comments »

The change in progress: towards a “new end”. Sorry, I don´t know what the problem was, but here you have the video working. I checked it. As I told you I had to do some modifications in order to accomplish a “new” requirement of my client. The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I dec...

When it was finished, the client decided to introduce a change: to divide the desk.

The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...

My workflow always decreases towards the end ...

09-09-2009 10:52 PM by xylosapiens | 8 comments »

Although all my previous designing, my efforts to get the piece of furniture to the very best end I can, usually met lots of minor cuestions to be solved, before finishing the job to my complete satisfaction. And this is the reason why the work sticks to the bench towards the end. Actually I’m never 100% satisfy. That’s the price I pay for the personal discoverys that represent my designs. Others don’t find it that much important, but it i...
