  1. My neighbor asked me to help him make a black walnut step in front of his electric fireplace. I drove over to Austin Hardwoods and they had a beautiful unit of extra wide 4/4 black walnut in the rough. It was very nice stuff and we found several pieces that were 15 1/2” wide by 12 ft long that were perfectly clear. We milled it yesterday and he put the first coat of finish on. Hopefully install it today. Paul
  2. Every year we have a neighborhood get together where we walk from house to house where there is food and games to play. The food is good and the games are sometimes hotly contested. The corn hole game is the one that everyone gets excited about, although last year the target shoot with a nerf ball gun got everyone going. The walk ends up in our cul de sac where we usually have a food truck, this year a taco truck, and the final round of the corn hole game where this years champion will be decided. For the last several years I have donated a turning as the prize. Did the glue up yesterday and will start turning it today. The base is canary wood and the top is black walnut. Paul
  3. I received some new engraving bits so I decided to try them out on a gift for one of my boat neighbors. A simple set of monogrammed coasters. Paul
  4. While waiting for the drywall to dry I turned another handle for a bottle opener/ tab top opener. I thought they would merely be kind of a novelty item but everyone I give one loves it. This one is black walnut and bubinga. I used the ceramic finish again. I have figured out how to get high gloss with one coat. Paul
  5. I have been asked by the neighbors to turn a bowl as a prize for this weekends Super Bowl party. Any good reason to turn another bowl right ? Plus I have yet another excuse not to paint the laundry room. Did I mention how much I hate painting ? It’s very nice of them to invite us seeing that the wife and I don’t have a clue who is even playing. Paul
  6. While making the holiday gift deliveries I discovered everyone had one except my next door neighbor. It was easily remedied this morning. Besides it let me procrastinate one more day on demoing the laundry room 😎 I used an end cut off a piece of 8/4 black walnut. Paul
  7. My middle size mallet has been looking pretty sad so it was time to use up some scraps and make a new one. The top is two cutoffs of black walnut and the handle is made of white oak I rescued from the stack of firewood. Paul
  8. Finished up the Christmas goodies today. I made some lidded bowls and mounted ceramic ducks on the lids. I've had these ducks for years and this year decided to use them. The lids are brass made from some salvaged door kick plates. I used my metal lathe to turn the brass sheet into round discs after roughing them out at the band saw in the metal shop. The lids are roughly 5 1/2". The lathe is a 6" max so rough cut had to be under the 6" limit. I had nine ducks ergo there are nine bowls. Black Walnut and Cherry are the wood species.
  9. The black walnut came from city hall here . They took down 3 and woodturners got 2. This is the crotch and there is still the other half to do. I was pleased with the flame showing on both inside and outside. This cherry bowl was a practice piece for the demo I did in March. It had a knot which was rotten but did not show till well into turning. Fortunately it was not a thru knot. I used epoxy colored with two micro powders which I think were blue and silver. Had noticed rim treatments . The center is cross hatched with Sorby Spiral Master and colored with Baroque Gilders Paste. Used woodburning pen to stipple the inside and outside of the rim design. For some reason this one looks better in person.
  10. Today we finished the concept of the media room. This is going to be a long one. I am expecting this to take me at least 2-3 months. The whole room including a major portion of the ceiling will be in black walnut. This is one of my favorite woods to work with so it’s going to be fun along with more than a few challenges. It includes making and hanging three doors, one of which she wants inlayed. The cabinet doors will be a combination of black walnut and Birdseye Maple. I am starting with the cabinet that houses the TV and going from there. Paul
  11. After making the chicken bowls I wanted to add an accent ring to a bowl and not waste my little supply of black walnut so I figured I'd just use my miter gauge to cut some segments and use that to make a circle. However they didnt' fit very well so I glued up 4 segments and hand sanding to get them flat then glued them into a circle... not ideal. Bowl parts ready for glue up. Glue up of the parts... on the right is the first chicken bowl. Not happy with that it's just wrong. The finished bowl... getting a bit better but not there yet. Woody III doing a cat scan of the bowl Did a bit more finish work with sand paper Finished Not happy with the segments... a bit of research and I built a segment jig... JT

    Walnut Rocker Seat

    From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    Before the finish is applied the chair is sanded to 800 then buffed to 1200 Abralon. The chair is already shining before the first finish goes on.
  13. So last weekend we worked on the boat and spent time with our grandsons. I delivered the top made last week to one and returned the toy F1 car to the other. Silly me. There is no reasoning with three year olds. I didn’t get the manual that says definitely don’t give one grandson a top and not the other ! What a circus. So we are returning this weekend to continue working on the boat and deliver another top. Walnut and maple again. I gave this one a brass tip to make it a little different. I will turn the launcher tomorrow and quell the uprising this weekend. Paul

    The joints in these chair is known as the "money shot". They are really pleasing to the eye, but in the manufacturing process of the leg to seat joints, the process can go from great to disaster in milliseconds, and the project could be ruined. I am happy when the seat joint operations are completed! In this image, the first coat of finish is not applied yet, the sheen you see is purely from sanding through the grits, up to a 1000 abralon pad.
  15. I want to thank @lew and @Gerald for their contributions to our "Black Walnut" wiki page. I put out the call in our Monday topic this past week for Black Walnut project images to be used in our wiki, and Lew and Gerald came to the rescue, thanks so much guys! Have a look at our updated page with some great walnut projects now in the page, thanks to these two gents. Wiki | Black Walnut THEPATRIOTWOODWIKI.ORG Wiki
  16. How does black walnut change its color. some of the wood will be back walnut as we know it dark, and then some of it is as white as pine? Preston

    The seat is really fun to shape in these rockers, you get to make a ton of sawdust!

    Black Walnut Chair

    From the album: Dane Franco

    California black walut
  19. · I built this about 20 years ago and I finally took a picture or two. It is made out of pine and black walnut. The wood had been in my shop for several years and was dry. I know you are not supposed to join soft woods and hard woods but I did and they have not contracted or expanded. After 20 years I think I'm ok. I like to build things without plans so I can always get it right! It is 25" high by 21' wide by 17' deep. Preston
  20. Medallion -none of the work was in veneer it was all 13/16'' stock.. the medallion surround is hand hewn black walnut... (scorped)... TS and miter trimmer for the primary tools...
  21. From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    This is a Black Walnut chair I built from a wonderful set of Hal Taylor plans for this style of rocking chair. To see Hal's plans please go to Rocking Chair University. This image was taken before final sanding.

    Walnut Rocker Finish

    From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    The grain really pops in these chairs when the first coat of oil is applied.
  23. From the album: Sewing needle cases.

    Fire starter in the middle with 2 flanking sewing needle cases
  24. and very little got done. Brought two 1 x 10 pine boards to the shop, since they were stored against the wall of the house. Cut them to a length needed. Ripped one right down the middle. Ripped just over 5" out of the second board. Used a jointah plane to ease an edge or two And the chest now has a bottom. Screwed to the cleats along the outside edges. Center plank is just held by a pair of screws, one on each end. Had the box clamped to the bench for a little clean up Well I used this to clean up after a belt sander leveled things a bit. Then a block plane for some detail work.....Then set up a drill press with a special bit Cuts a tapered plug. Chunk of scrap wood is Black Walnut. I used a screwdriver tip to pop the plugs out.A littlte glue into the counter bore, and bang a plug home. Later, after the glue has set for awhile, a block plane to trim these down Lets see, seven to a corner, and there are four such corners,, might take a bit. BTW: Beltsander don't work very well trimming the plugs down. Gouges the wood, and burns the plug. Just about any sharp plane will do. Stay tuned....
