Milling Lumber from Arizona Residental Trees #1: Afghan Pine or Aleppo Pine thoughts on milling and use.

02-01-2021 10:30 AM by azwoodworker | 0 comments »

Hi, was doing some research on the slabs and boards on the trees I have been milling over the last few years and came across a post on Aleppo or Afghan pine that I remember seeing when I milled my first Afghan Pine but did not have much to add. Not much else was added since so I thought I’d give some conclusions after drying and building with it. I know Aleppo Pine and Afghan Pine are different, but many people use the names interchangeably. I’ve milled and dried Afghan pine over the last 4 y...

Boxes from Red Cedar #14: Wrapping things up, second coat is on...PIP

01-08-2021 12:57 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Did a bit of hand sanding today….sanded the outside to 320 grit, then wiped it all down. Decided to varnish the coat at least.. More to protect the insides from wet items being placed back inside….think of all the seasonings and such at a cookout….this box will get used to carry them… Floor and the dividers got a decent coat. then closed the lids for a bit…. This was more about how the wood looked, than about the smell of Cedar…I...

Segmented Pyrography Design #1: Overview of a segmented pyrography project.

12-16-2018 01:41 AM by Julian | 11 comments »

I found a crochet pattern that I thought would make an interesting pattern on a turning. First step is to make the rings. 12 segments per ring made with soft maple. Soft maple is very white compared to most other woods and will contrast nicely with the burned pattern lines. The turning will be made in two halves which makes it much easier to shape the inside. After the two halves are glued together I finish shaping the outside and the top. Now it is time to transfer the design o...

Indian pottery and pyrography #5: More burning

06-06-2018 02:54 PM by Julian | 5 comments »

The wood burning can be a slow and tedious process but the results are worth the effort in my opinion. This will be the final post for this blog. I have a little more work to do on this pattern but will post in the projects section when it is completed.

Indian pottery and pyrography #4: Starting the pyrography

06-05-2018 02:28 PM by Julian | 2 comments »

With the pattern all drawn in pencil it is much easier to burn the lines.I used a skew tipped pyrography pen. The straight edge on the pen tip helps burn a straight line.

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Segmented Pyrography vessel #2 #1: The building process.

12-08-2017 07:32 PM by Julian | 8 comments »

This vessel is made from maple and macassar ebony. My goal was to make a square wave pattern with a tilt. This turned out to be more tricky than I realized but finally figured it out. The center of the vessel will be burned with a pattern I found in a Youtube video. The pattern is called Ududu by Ellen Wolters. First step is to draw out the design from which I will get all my measurements. The final result turned out a little different. The vessel was made in two parts and then glued t...
