It’s All About Donating! #6: Rustic Intarsia

08-13-2019 02:19 PM by justoneofme | 12 comments »

Warning! This blog is a long one … but it’s the last in this series. So I hope you enjoy a favourite beverage while reading or just looking at these photos :) Remember I said something about having an idea I hoped would work? Well … it did!! Never having dabbled in ‘rustic’ painting before now, my methods may seem somewhat unorthodox to those who know better. And truly … I did experience a few inner battles between simple rustic and intricate realism while tackling...

It’s All About Donating! #5: Rustic Intarsia

07-29-2019 02:45 PM by justoneofme | 11 comments »

After a 3-week painting marathon to beautify our dwelling, then reclaiming my workshop again … I’m finally back to this Rustic Intarsia art piece. Even though it had been put on hold, constant thoughts of shaping the design parts kept momentum driving me forward in anticipation!Experience has taught me to prepare for a projectile or two! When it comes to rough sanding tiny pieces it’s definitely necessary to have a firm grip on things! But … when only the slightest brush agains...

Outdoor Wood Furniture & Wood Rot

07-20-2019 01:53 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I recently repaired a picnic table that was suffering from a bad case of wood rot. The table had some mild issues on the body, but the top was not built to withstand the outdoor elements. See how this came apart and how I replaced parts so they would last much longer and resist wood rot. Video –

Cedar Outdoor Storage #1: Work in progress...nearing assembly stage

07-12-2019 08:24 PM by agilbert66 | 0 comments »

A year or so ago I began thinking of a storage solution to keep our outdoor patio cushions looking nice during the winter months and also to get some of the kids’ toys out of the garage. I found a plan for an outdoor storage unit on a canadian woodworking site ( and used the general concept to come up with my own more decorative/ornate design. Instead of the boring flat design in that plan, I decided to create a series...

It’s All About Donating! #4: Rustic Intarsia

07-01-2019 03:19 PM by justoneofme | 10 comments »

Life keeps interrupting me! But at least (within this write up ) I can show how far along things got before having to put my Intarsia project on hold. So now that the entire design is secured to its backboard, the time has come to enhance all those edges with ‘rustic’. You’ll notice at the bottom left (photo) how dark that particular edge is. I’m aiming for the same along the top and bottom. Both side edges already look great with scabby paint and old wood blending together. Normally I’m...

It’s All About Donating! #3: Rustic Intarsia

06-12-2019 05:39 AM by justoneofme | 14 comments »

How many times, pulling pieces apart and fitting them back in place again, does it take before an Intarsia art piece is ready to hang on the wall? A video of my work in progress viewed fast forward would confirm such repetition … a gazillion times … but who’s counting?! At least these chosen photos shouldn’t throw you into that world of boredom!! But repetition is worth mentioning because someone out there in LumberJock Land might be contemplating this particular style of Int...

It’s All About Donating! #2: Rustic Intarsia

06-01-2019 11:44 PM by justoneofme | 13 comments »

I’m back with some progress made. It’s hard to stay indoors for any length of time when all the wonderful pleasures of Spring beckon me out! This stage of design cutting took approximately 8 hours … spread out over the span of a week or so to complete.Cutting is the easy part! “Intricate” happens when elevation and shaping of all the cut pieces begins. But wanting to clearly see the design, it was time to set everything up on top of my table saw, drawing it close to where I would b...

Alaska Cabin #3: The Live Edge Counter

02-06-2019 02:51 AM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

When I moved in to the small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin on the fire base in McGrath, AK it was nicer than most of the primitive cabins on base. Some of the walls had rough cut white spruce panels and there was a little hand made furniture from previous crafty resident firefighters. In the kitchen area the counter was a white painted piece of plywood braced to the wall with a simple cabinet underneath. I figured I could do better and thus began my first major woodworking project that started m...
