  1. Found Wood Spruce + Antler Cane

    This found wood cane uses spruce [no insects this time] with the outer bark removed down to the inner bark. I gentily warmed the bark to raise the sap in beads on the surface. Then with a rubber glove rubbed the sap onto the surface . I'd like to think this adds to the colour but I could just be...
  2. Mobile Butcher Block

    It's been almost two years since I posted last project. After finishing this, I wish this took less than a year, but it's well over two years. Because of my back pain, handling this heavy block had been a real pain, both physically and mentally. Whatever…. it's done finally. I believe many...

  4. Bumble Bee & Dragonfly Coasters

    I enjoyed making these coasters, also believe it or not a learning lesson on matching front and back up properly. Their measurements are 3 3/4" square by a 1/4" thick. The top is made of Alder and the bottom Walnut. They look good together. I finished them with spray semi-gloss laquer...

    I found a piece of wood, that I believe is California Bay Laurel, by the side of the road and have been using it for some turning projects.

    2 species of branches found in my green waste bin - what are they? I've had quite a weekend here in LA with the free wood gathering. It's laughable to you folks on farms, or out in the deep woods with harvestable lumber all around you, but here, we have to beg for our scraps, or put down hard...

    Glazing When framing anything using glass or acrylic as the glazing, there should be an air gap of at least 1/8" between the art or object being framed and the inside surface of the glass. This is to prevent moisture, from the condensation that will almost certainly occur, from transferring to...
  11. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    OK, I wasn't going to post this, but rethought this and feel I should share this safety concern. Yesterday, I was resawing a 9in wide 8/4 piece of pine into 3/8in shelving. FWIW, it is typically 95-105F in the shop this time of year (South Texas) so I was wearing a pair of carpenter's shorts...
