Burls #1: Burl the size of a car

01-14-2008 05:18 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 31 comments »

Karson and I were talking on the phone the other night, the topic being burls. He posted pictures of a burl someone left in his driveway. The conversation started with us discussing the best way to cut it to yield the best results. Unfortunately, I have very little knowledge in this area. I do have a friend, Rick Hearne, of Hearne Hardwoods I intend to ask about this process, as I too have a bunch of Cherry burls waiting to be sliced. I mentioned to Karson I saw a very large...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #11: "Where Are the Power Tools" --by RusticWoodArt

01-13-2008 06:25 PM by frank | 5 comments »

Where Are the Power Tools ....climbing up out of the saw pit, the worker of wood looked around and was under-stand-ably fathomed by the appearance of what he saw from up here on top. ”Just like climbing out of a box”; he was heard to exhale as he shook the wide brimmed hat free from all the particles of saw chips that gravity had brought his way. Stomping off in the direction of the sap house and muttering to himself, I could not quite understand what the words were that he was...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #10: "Polyporus betulinus" --by RusticWoodArt

01-11-2008 02:56 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Polyporus betulinus ....just thought I would post a shot of one of my keepers of the ideas that fungi around inside my head, before manifesting their molds of desire in the mind-full beauty of ‘wood art’…. And so if any want to follow, then here’s a short course in General Mycology….or as some may say,....WHO-ology and WHAT-ology….! Walking the woods and gathering wood is not the only thing I gather, since what good is wood unless ones starts to un...

The evolution of a project

01-07-2008 01:25 AM by Greg Wurst | 8 comments »

One of the first things I did here after finding this site was to post a project I had designed in Sketchup for a new TV stand to match my entertainment center. You can find the original forum post here: I thought it might be interesting if I detailed the evolution of this project to show how listening to good advice can drastically change the way you have something originally designed. We had a large 65” TV we were going to replace with a newe...

Tool Cabinet #2: Respect to all cabinet builders...

01-07-2008 12:48 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 19 comments »

For all of you cabinet builders on this site, my hat is off to you! I never fully realized the work that is involved in making a cabinet and how even the smallest mistakes can compound so very quickly… Right before Christmas I posted this blog asking for input on plans for a tool cabinet. Well, I took all the advice I received and have been furiously building over the holidays. Here is where I stand—I have completed the actual “cabinet” portion of the project. ...

"Waunderings in Ones Back-Yard WoodLot" --by RusticWoodArt

01-05-2008 05:24 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Waunderings in Ones Back-Yard WoodLot ....crunching the landscape of snowflakes, i soon took a waundering walkabout, where all is silently content within their respected milieu, awaiting those birthing pangs that signal a spectacular spring….. —-were it not for these striving images of imagination,who would be found to come and rescue a soul such as i,since long ago in times of olden beholden begotten wood turnings,i walked right out of sight from those who had long tried to...

My 3 Horses

01-01-2008 10:00 AM by Allison | 2 comments »

I found the pattern to these horses in a stained glass pattern book of which I know longer have so I cannot give credit. If anyone out there in cyberspace knows who did this pattern I would really like to know so that I can give credit. Stain glass patterns are a nice alternative to regular wood patterns and usually quite easier.

Red Tailed Hw

01-01-2008 09:20 AM by Allison | 4 comments »

This is one of my personal favorites. The pattern came from Creative Woodworks & crafts March 2000 Special Double Millenium issue and is titled “Red Tailed Hawk.” It was the beginning of my love for doing birds in intarsia. For me these birds are not easy,to say the least and perhaps that is where my love for doing them lies.I LOVE the challenge!!! Matter of fact the first one of this pattern I had done I had the hardest time getting the feathers to line up so much so that I actually ...
