  1. PIP River Table

    Hey Cal, as promised. First PIPs. More after the slab gets cut and planed. And after Phyl gets back with the camera. That slab is 2" thick, about 16' wide and I'll cut it to yield a 48" long table top. The finished width will depend on the width of the glass "river".
  2. quick table

    From the album coffee table

  3. Oh my, OH MY! (Gerald's Bowls)

    Thank you Gerald, for gracing our community with your work. Big bow, bow, bow, bow, like a China Man, I am bowing, backing away, slowly, still bowing, you are the God of bowl turning, I love your work! We've tweeted it, facebooked it, and featured this album, you make our community look great! And to all Patriot Woodworkers, please upload your images to your gallerys, so we can drool over it all! Use our gallery, it's one of the least used departments in our community.
  4. I have always wanted to take a shot at making some bowls so I finally got serious and ordered some bowl gouges last winter. A co- worker had a Hickory tree come down and I got a few pieces of it to try. Here is my first attempt at live edge turning and my first glued up bowl as well. I took them to the county fair and the live edge bowl earned a blue in the woodcrafts category while the glued up bowl took a red in recycled items. The live edge bowl is Hickory. The other is reclaimed Walnut beam, part of an Osage Orange fence post, and a scrap of Oak house trim. I really enjoyed these projects and plan to do more. Much to learn with the lathe.
  5. Very First Live edged bowl

    Started it this AM the wood is elm, damp but mostly dry so I'm going for finished dimensions.
  6. Another natural edge walnut.

    I've still got at least dozen of the natural edge walnut pieces to finish up. Was kind of between projects and decided to sand and finish this one. I chose this one because it looked like my cuts were decent and it wouldn't take as much sanding as some of the others. It's about 16X12X5.5. The bark is just really nice on this one I think. It was just about to big for my little photo booth. Steve
  7. I say that just about every time but this one could be special I think. About 19" diameter and five inches deep. Spectacular grain and markings in it as well. There's going to be a bit of sanding and I'll probably let it dry for a couple months but if it turns out I'm going to call it "ET" Steve
  8. Mixed Media Project

    I was asked to provide a woodworking project for a fundraiser. So I decided to mix my photography job and woodworking hobby to create a mixed media project for display. I took a shot of the Alley Springs Mill (Jacks Fork Missouri) late one winter, accentuated the mill over the black and white background and had an 8x12 printed on metal (aluminum). I then took a piece of scrap live edge walnut and created a background to "frame" the image. The print is raised of the background by 1.5" using blocking to give it a 3 dimensional look. This is the live edge piece after cutting for length, jointing the long edges, hand planing the face and back and a base sand with 40 and 80 grit. A quick test to see how the print looked over the natural wood. I decided on staining. I wiped on Minwax walnut stain, then sprayed three coats of semi-gloss polyurethane over the entire piece. Epoxied the print to the board and placed on a stand for display. I'm extremely pleased with how this turned out. It allowed me to work with the metal media, and use a piece of live edge to accentuate the print. Will
  9. live edge, plugs

    From the album Lap Desk

    Detail of the live edge, and the walnut plugs to cover the screws, all five of them.
  10. back board

    From the album Lap Desk

    A better look at the back board...full of knots. That is a live edge on top.
  11. Lid wasn't working out

    Well, found out the hinged items and I still don't get along. Trying to install a lid on these Lap Desk.......didn't go too well. Trashed the non-moving part of the lid, as the meeting angles...didn't. Got out the last of the wider boards from the stash. Had a "Live Edge"......maybe a design feature? marked out where I needed to cut. Bandsaw still refuses to cut a straight line, so I'll dig this little saw out. At least it will saw a straight line. Clamped things up, to see what angles needed cut And test fitted some hinges.....close enough for now.... Closed the lid...still a bit "hinge-bound", but better than it was. More Walnut plugs to install, and then just called it a night Front view, and a look at the back edge BTW, while trying to plane a bevel on the edge of this curly Maple stuff That plane sitting beside the panel is one of the two from an auction Seems to be tuned up enough to make a few shavings....The little smooth plane also did a bit of work on the flat areas Millers Falls No.8....about the size of a Stanley #3. Might just add a coat of BLO to this desk, and see what turns up.....
