  1. A lot of people can operate a chainsaw, but............
  2. While perusing the wide world web tonight, forever in search of factual based data for our wiki, I stumbled across The Public Domain Review, a great resource for information and research, one of the articles I came across was this very interesting history of Intarsia. Just thought I'd share it here. https://publicdomainreview.org/2018/05/16/exquisite-rot-spalted-wood-and-the-lost-art-of-intarsia/
  3. The local art council sponsors a non juried show every year for local artisans. It's a small show but it's still fun to enter. This year, I entered three pieces, ones you've all seen before. Two of them got recognition so I'm very happy about that. Just wanted to share my moment! Thanks for looking. Steve

  5. Where it was This topic is long over due, my family and I went to the San Diego County Fair this past July 2nd as we do most every year, and we had a blast. Like any county fair, it is chock full of rides, summer crowds, farm animals, monster truck races, and huge portions of the deep fried and barbecued food. It was a neat time. The San Diego County Fair, formerly known as the Del Mar Fair, is held each summer the three weeks leading up to the 4th of July, then on the 4th of July, they have a grand finale fireworks show. The fair grounds is less than a half mile from the ocean, so we get the wonderful ocean breeze all day and into the night, when it actually chills down a bit to a refreshing summer night. We rolled in around 10 am and we left the fair grounds an hour before sunset. We had planned on having a light lunch at the fair, wife and I split a sausage sandwich, and the kids shared some food too. Our plan was to have dinner after our day at the fair, at some place reasonable in cost. The fair food is expensive! And we did, after the fair, we ended up at Fletcher Cove, and we hit the Subway Sandwich shop and took our sandwiches to go, to the beach, and sat and ate and watched the sun go down. It was a perfect way to end the day, and it was a perfect fresh meal to counteract the grease we ate earlier at the fair. Me and Mrs. Morris end of day after the fair, our kids took this image, pretty cool, the evening was beautiful. At the fair Of course among all the other activities that go on at the fair, there is one exhibit that I look forward too, each year Fine Woodworkers Association Design in Wood Exhibition features local woodworkers and their work in one big building. Each year I am in awe of everything that is there. The work is inspiring, humbling, and just flat out fun to see. I'll post the images here, without explanation, and I'll let you all come up with your own captions in your own head. The following images are a fraction of the work that was actually there, I tried to get an overall collection of images with you all in my mind, I wanted there to be something for everyone here. Have fun! The following images is from a separate exhibit of wood work by local high school students and the Palomar School of Woodworking. And what fair is complete without the Monster Truck and Pee Wee races! Hope ya had fun looking at our fair pictures!
  6. Why, you selling to a family of Gnomes so they can build a home, of course..... Yes, those are orange windows on the sides...
  7. I started with some Blood Wood scraps in my hand on the way to toss them and some of it kind of looked like a flower petal. I made it and coated it with epoxy, which wasn't a good idea, won't do that again. I wanted to get a more natural looking surface, didn't come out as I hoped. It looked pretty sad. I redid some of it, still didn't like it. My wife said "Why don't you put a butterfly on it" I did, 2 of them.
  8. I made a large clock that featured a lot of art shapes. The more I looked at it,the more I thought two of the shapes looked line a bird in flight. So I made a wall hanger with that thought in mind.
  9. any time soon......... These are too good to take apart! This scene with the owl must have taken the artist so long to plan and put Together! All of the different types and cuts of wood make for a Very detailed piece of art. The moon actually looks like its glowing! While this design is a little more basic, its no-less Cool than the other ones. It seems like it might be A little more practical in the winter, too. This spiral looks really Cool. It must be interesting to see it deconstructed in the winter As more and more of the logs are Used. I would personally have a hard time taking apart Something that looks so Interesting. The wood-piling artists Are getting very creative. I love how this one uses old wooden Wheels To give their work an Extra interesting element. This dog might not look Very impressed by this fish-shaped wood pile, but we sure Are! I think the stump that Makes up the eye might be my favorite part. This one is incredible! Let’s just hope that the paint used isn’t Flammable. It’s probably a little Easier to get your kids to help stack wood when they know its Result In an adorable little House for them to play make-believe with. This is way too Cute! This colorful stack is Sure to look amazing once winter hits. Just imagine those pops Of color against the white snow! Wow! This wood pile was Made to look like the King and Queen of Norway. The detail that the Artists captured are actually mind-blowing. You could stare at this One forever trying to figure out how they stacked the wood. This is Amazing. I love this one. Some of The piles look like little huts while others look like giant Acorns. This artist blended Their wood stack right into the exterior of their Home. It looks nice, and it Will keep them from having to go far for more Firewood Once the winter hits. It’s pretty and practical! This ring made out of Logs is hypnotizing to look at. It must have taken a great amount of patience To build. Owl mosaics seem to be Pretty popular in the wood piling community. I love how Beautiful all of the different Woods look in the first one. And how cute is the owl Peaking out from the snow in the Second one? While this stack is a Little more abstract, it’s still a perfect example of how Many colors and textures can be Used. I’m not sure what this one is supposed To be, but I see a giant Leaf. Either way, this stack Is very interesting.
  10. Hi… I have got an old styled barn which was left unused for few years and I’m just thinking of a renovation. I want to use it as my art gallery, to store and display my collections. I focus equally at adorning the barn with wood work. I’m hoping for wooden frames and wooden wrappings with professional appearance.The structural style is good and alright. It was constructed years back so I’m concerned with the waterproofing of the basement. The walls that make up the barn are strong without defects. But for long lasting and protection of the barn. While discussing this with my friends, they suggested for a professional plumber who will be able to finish it skillfully. So I’m here seeking advice and suggestions to improvise the renovation. Do provide ideas on waterproofing and the woodworks to enhance the barn. All comments invited...
  11. I have only turned one off set center turning. I started by drilling a couple of holes that were off center line. I kept turning , routing and inventing as I went.. I finished it off with a yellow hart head and base. My daughter always admired it and I gave it to her for Christmas this year.
  12. As a wood turner, who has inspired you to try something you've not done before? What form, method, embellishment, or even comments have made you push yourself? For me, first and foremost is a man most of you won't know, Neil Gloudemans, Neil was our club president when I first joined and is one of the artists featured in this article from Woodworkers Journal. I once watched Neil turn a cowboy hat, from round blank to ready for the press in just under two hours, still amazing to me. Cindy Drozda of course, admittedly my finials aren't even a close approximation of hers, she is an excellent teacher and technician. Binh Pho, although I don't really like his interpretation on most of his pieces, he turns beautiful forms to a very thin wall and having that skill is something he has inspired me to learn, results are mixed to this point! Molly Winton, her embellishment with pyrography led me to invest a machine and start learning some wood burning techniques. Like turning, there is a big learning curve and there is always another pen or tip to buy. A lady named Ellen Wolters, she is a you tube author and an amazing zentangle artist, watching her, I knew immediately that art form was something I wanted to incorporate into my pieces. Pablo Picasso, not for his art, most of which I don't understand, ok, I don't understand any of it. To me, his is inspirational for his quotes and his attitudes. You may have noticed, one of his quotes is part of my signature; "I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn to do it" To me, that embodies a wood turners spirit. There are others of course and there will be more but these are a few who come to mind. So, who inspires you? Steve
  13. Saw this on FB this morning and as a wood turner it spoke to me. It was my first intention to post it in the turning forum but I think it's relevant to every aspect of wood working. Steve
  14. I just finished a project I started years ago. I turned a piece down so that both halves were off center from the other. One thing lead to another and I put it aside. I found it yesterday and resumed my modern art project. There is NO hand carving done here, all lathe, router and drill. Of course sanding and finishing. The second my daughter saw it she said "That is mine!
  15. I wonder what the moisture content of this wood is.

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
