Post Covid road trip yields Mesquite wood

07-03-2021 03:19 AM by Brodan | 11 comments »

While on a post Covid road trip which included a few days staying at a friends home in West Texas I gathered some mesquite chunks to saw into boards. I don’t have specific plans for it but…. Had access to a saw while here so I milled a couple of pieces. Hard as the dickens!!!

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...

A couple of tips for turning cast/wood blanks.

11-14-2017 02:50 AM by KelleyCrafts | 5 comments »

If you have never turned a cast wood blank and would like a few tips I wrote a blog post about it. Some of these may seem obvious but to new turners it would be helpful for sure. These tips could be helpful for blanks that aren’t cast wood blanks as well. You can find the blog post HERE. Thanks! Dave

Morris Chair #9: Journey's End, and so it goes.

03-04-2015 02:43 PM by Luddite | 2 comments »

3 March 2015 I’ve finally reached the end of this build. Soon the client will come claim her chairs and off they’ll go for their cushions. Glad but sad at the end of builds, well not for all of them. The “Tea Table” was one I didn’t shed any tears over. My phantom tip of thumb reminds me every time I mention that project. So here’s a wrap up of the Morris Chair build…. Early January. Legs and rails prepped. Bent arm conundrum reso...

Morris Chair #8: OK. Don't get lazy now! You're almost there.

02-23-2015 01:03 AM by Luddite | 2 comments »

22 Feb. 2015 Well, the weather changed here. Went from a high of 70 to 81 this past week. I almost broke out in a sweat…..The desert flowers are just opening.

We went to the gem and mineral show. My first time after 40 years. It was interesting to say the least. I also did the ...

Morris Chair #7: Still wrestling with the wood devils.

02-14-2015 02:11 PM by Luddite | 4 comments »

14 Feb 2015 Much further along the project of no return.Sanding and some oiling with gluing up the base unit and arms. Seems it was a bit anti-climatic when making the arms. Now, that’s OK with me. Even though they do look a little frankenstein like it was a good recovery and taught me some new skills and ideas! I did use some black dyed epoxy to fill in some small gaps but does look good. After sanding and some oiling I’ve assembled the first baseframe. I’m quit...
