Monster Wide Cocobolo Slabs and the Blank Give-away

02-19-2019 01:09 AM by Steve | 0 comments »

A while back, we brought in some of the largest 8/4 Cocobolo Rosewood live-edge slabs I’ve ever seen. It was fun to process them into parts. At the tail-end of the project, we made pen blanks from the scraps. Maximum utilization of the resource! View on YouTube

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...

Sealing live edge on swamp kauri

02-03-2019 05:40 PM by kiwilynne | 7 comments »

A piece of green swamp kauri that I’m working into a statement necklace. I don’t really want to use resin as a means of protecting the live edge and wondering whether a clear poly will do the trick? I haven’t really worked with live edges before, so inquiring minds :)

How To Keep A Live Edge Slab From Warping

01-31-2019 07:25 AM by Logboy | 8 comments »

A question I get hit with a lot is how to keep a live edge slab from warping, or how to stop one after it has started warping. I decided to make a video explaining the wood science behind it and what you have to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrwD6qHK5IM&feature=youtu.be Heres the chart that tells you what the moisture content of your wood will be for the temperature and humidity of your home or woodshop.

Mesquite Slab Table #1: Cleaning up the slab

04-16-2018 07:11 PM by builtinbkyn | 29 comments »

Last week I picked up a really nice looking slab of mesquite from Rockler of all places. It’s nice and flat and 1.5”x18”x62” roughly. Thought before I went ahead and started work on a much larger slab table using the book-matched honeylocust slabs I have for my dining table, I’d get a feel for how this work would proceed and the trials and tribulations I will obviously encounter along the way. I could use a cocktail table in the TV room, so that’s the pl...

Loft Bed Additions #1: Bark Trim Shelf

03-01-2017 04:04 AM by chrisjhennessy | 0 comments »

My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...

Walnut, live-edge, end-table build

02-02-2017 03:28 AM by DavidOveracre | 0 comments »

So I was given what was basically an old chunk of walnut firewood by a friend, as well as some random scrap pieces of milled walnut (among other useful things as well). I decided one day to roughly slab the big chunk when I was already doing the same with a cedar log for another project. It looked amazing when I opened it up, so I continued with the process. I started by using my router sled on one side of both slabs (2 pieces is about all the big chunk yielded). Then sent both thru the plane...

Live Edge Walnut Desk with Waterfall Joinery and a Metal Leg #1: First Cuts With The Track Saw

10-19-2016 10:41 PM by JustinTyme | 4 comments »

I just started this build for a client. We originally started with 6/4 sweet gum. That did not work as the wood was heavily warped. We switched to a walnut that is fairly flat, but also only 4/4. Originally on of the 45’s on the desk was going to be a waterfall joint with a hidden spline. Instead I will most like craft the 45, but back it with metal to strengthen the joint. The other side of the desk will be supported by a metal leg. I have not decided what I will seal it with. I am ope...
