Spalted beech picture frame

07-05-2021 05:55 PM by MikeB_UK | 1 comment »

Well, after seeing my plough plane, SWMBO immediately requisitioned the rest of my spalted beech to make a picture frame for a painting she was doing. True up the blank. Then resaw it into quarters. True up the blanks. And carefully mark out where to cut the mitres, it’s vital that you remember to account for the rebate that will be cut to hold the picture. Trim the ends in a mitre jack. And them trim the opposite sides, matching it to the length of the ones already tr...

Journey into Woodturning #21: Spalted Ambrosia Maple Fruit Bowl!

10-20-2020 02:11 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

Spalted Ambrosia Maple, just saying it sounds fancy. Maple is a nice wood. Ambrosia Maple is special. Spalted ambrosia maple is beautiful. Wood grain in general is like a fingerprint of a piece of art. When the fingerprint becomes a tattoo of art unto itself, it’s more than the signature of the piece. It takes on another look, feel, persona, gesture, ambience… beauty. I knew going into the piece it would be shallow and probably a fruit bowl, but I did not see this wood turning out so amazi...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #1: Veneered Panels/Framing the Top

02-01-2016 05:12 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I’ll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the finished project here. I don’t have a shot of the small Cocobolo board I was given that inspired this table before I started cutting it up but it was a couple of board feet. There was a lovely rich heartwood section d...

Nice! Yes, This is a Wood Gloat

10-28-2015 01:21 AM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I had two elm logs left that I pulled off the bank on the side of my house. They are both about 2 feet long. One of them I cut up tonight and I was happily surprised. I tried a different technique this time which I’ll cover when I break down the other log. I am very happy with the yield. Each slice is about 1/2 inch thick and the narrowest is just under 2 inches. The others are about 2-1/2 in. The log was about 4 in. in diameter.

Hints and Tips #13: Spalted Log Breakdown

09-30-2015 07:34 PM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

This is a 2 foot section of a 12 foot long branch which I dragged off our bank this week. I speculated that if it wasn’t too rotten that it would have some spalted wood in it. After cutting it in half on my band saw, I discovered I was right. [Below] I screwed the half log onto a board with an edge overhanging the board. More imortantly one edge of the board was clear of the log as well. This is so that the board will be flat to the table saw and the edge of the board will r...

There's Spalted Wood on that thar Bank!

08-07-2015 01:19 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

[EDIT] I mistakenly used the word burl when I meant spalted. I’ve since corrected the rest of this post. During the last few days I’ve been pruning a few trees that grow close to our house. This led me to ask about a certain tree. I’ve since discovered that the wood that I thought might be pear is actually elm. This is all good. I’ve cut a few of the larger pieces of my prunings to use when the day comes that I play with wood turning again. More importantly is...

My second Rocking Chair from Hal Taylor Design - Walnut

05-14-2012 02:24 AM by mbs | 14 comments »

My mom went with me when I bought the wood for my first rocker and she realized I bought enough wood to make two rockers. She put her order in for one right then. Today is her birthday and mother’s day so I got started on the rocker. I don’t expect to get done until this winter because I don’t do much woodworking in the summer. 5/13/12 When I made my first rocker I cut enough rocker slats and back brace slats to make a second rocker. I got started by glueing up the ...

Jewelry Cabinet #4: Final pieces, assembly and finish.

04-13-2012 04:06 AM by Devin | 4 comments »

Well, about 330 days ago I wrote something about being finished this piece in another 4 weeks. That didn’t happen, but in my defence I did get other pieces done in that time, I just kept getting pulled away from this jewelry cabinet. The work left on this piece was not big, but very finicky and detailed, which is likely why I kept finding it hard to get traction. I made the three drawers for the bottom section before moving onto the more intricate boxes that sit on the cabinet. ...
