Wood stabilizing #4: Second batch

12-24-2018 02:09 AM by Dave Polaschek | 2 comments »

I stabilized another batch of wood this weekend. It included: butternut, salt cedar, cherry, citrus, spalted elm, eucalyptus, hackberry, ipe, African mahogany, hard maple, spalted maple, white oak, pear, and walnut. I made a list, so I wouldn’t forget. Especially before sanding off the excess cactus juice, it can be hard to tell what’s what. And here they are: Butternut through ipe in the first photo, and ipe through walnut in the second. No huge surprises. Ipe remains ha...

Turned Kitchen Scoops

12-01-2016 02:03 AM by lew | 17 comments »

So I’m down to making gifts for the nurses at my doctor’s office. I rarely visit the office for a “Sick Call” but I do take care of their computers. It’s always an inconvenience for the nurses when I have to interrupt their routines, so I try and make up for it by making each of them a little something every year. My sister gave me this idea a couple of years ago when she gifted me a turned scoop and I’ve been meaning to make some ever since. I had some ...

Tool thoughts #33: Some new cutting boards

08-23-2012 02:28 PM by NedB | 3 comments »

[_]D Morning all, Since the powers that be frown on WIP photos in the projects section, here are some in progress photos of what i did yesterday:I was cleaning out the tool shed (distinct from my Shop… it is where the lawn stuff, and family stuff is stored) and I found a whole bin of short cut-offs plus a single 5/4 cherry board. The board was weathered (it was when I got it) and I’ve had it for at least 8 years now. My how time flies when life gets in the way of woodworking. Th...

An easy method to cut mortise and tenon joints for a bench

06-11-2011 01:05 AM by HalDougherty | 5 comments »

I made a bench for a gift, but it was just too rustic looking. So, I made another one from red oak that looks more modern. This 2” walnut slab still makes a great looking bench. I sawed this slab 57 days ago from a nice walnut log. It’s going to sit at the end of my bed to be used as a dressing bench. Here's the project page to go with this blog. I cut the shoulders from the legs, leaving a 2 1/4” tenon. Then used the cut off pieces of leg material to make a jig to cut th...

A new kitchen table #1: preparing the top

05-19-2011 06:32 AM by derosa | 1 comment »

At our old house we had what my wife liked to call a breakfast nook, it was a small table with two benches that occupied the corner of the kitchen. It had cost us 50.00 bucks on craigslist and is/was just the right size for that kitchen prompting us to leave it there. The fact that the benches were notorious for dumping the unsuspecting on their asses may have assisted the decision. The result is that the wife is requesting a replacement. I decided that I really like the look of butternut ...

Beginner Looking for Wood Source

06-07-2010 10:13 PM by TexasNails | 5 comments »

I am just getting started as a wood carver and still exploring where I will go with it. I have a few knives and chisels and adding some along the way as I learn what I need and where to get them I am also trying to find the best source for wood. Since I am currently only doing chip carving, small sculptures and reliefs, my needs are not great. I am purchasing small blocks of basswood from Rockler and Woodcrafters locally. Is there a better / cheaper source for my wood? I have been unabl...

Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

03-30-2010 05:49 AM by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...
