  1. I made a couple of these for my family and got another request for a couple more. I made them out of Cedar fencing boards and painted with some fence stain/preservative. I made each finger and then joined with glue. After the glue set, I made a cut thru the knuckle and put in a spline. I also drilled all the way thru the fingers and glued in a small dowel to hold the fingers together. The childrens sunglasses came from the Dollar store
  2. A friend of mine a year and a half ago was camping by this lake with his buddies. A big wind came up abruptly as they were standing around the fire trading great adventures. Suddenly a cedar tree blew over and pinned three of them to the ground. The others rushed to cut the out to rescue them. My friend was the only one seriously hurt. he had a broken right leg and a smashed ankle. To make the story short, after much surgery and therapy he was able to sort of walk and he fell again and re-broke his ankle. They re-did the surgery on his ankle and and it was healing fine and he had a stroke. He is only 53yo and had some brain damage along with some paralysis of his left side. While recuperating his buddies would come to visit and one day one of them brought him a piece of fire wood from the tree. He then later asked me to make him something from the block of wood for a remembrance of the experience. So here is what I made. Herb
  3. Good article on outdoor woods: https://www.woodmagazine.com/materials-guide/lumber/outdoor-lumber?cid=369791&did=369791-20190425&mid=20453126205&utm_campaign=wood-online_newsletter&utm_content=042519&utm_medium=email&utm_source=woodmagazine.com I probably have mentioned this before: In the town I moved from 3 years ago, they were looking to replace the wood in the park benches (cast frames). They went to the store that Steve Mickley (prior host of finishing at Wood Forums) and asked for some red oak. He told them, once he found out what they wanted it for, was that he'd put them on a two-year re-order schedule because it wouldn't last outside. He recommended Ipe. They sprung for it. One of the benches was in front of the park that was 100 yards away from my house there and I walked past it 4 or 5 times a week. It was a busy street and I'm sure it got regular sprays of salt-treated slush (the city used to send past all their plows, 5 of them, in a convoy during snowfalls). It aged to a beautiful gray, no great cracking,and no mossy residue that I've often seen on teak. It looked great after about 15 years of nothing. I also had a job once to replace a back support on an Adirondack chair. I had a piece of white oak that I graciously volunteered to do it in. The lady sort of stuck her nose in the air and said, "Oh, this is for a house in Indian Hill*, and the original is teak." "OK," I said. I went to see Steve and he graciously cut off a 2' section that was the right width for me and charged me the $20 for the piece. There were probably six cuts I had to make, all at some angle or bevel and the right dimension that I had to replicate. I think I charged a total of $40 for the material, the trip to the store and the half-hour of shop time. The lady was shocked that it was "so expensive." (sigh) Rich but cheap snob. * Indian Hill is the most affluent part of town where most of the C-level execs at the big companies live, most in 5000+ sq.ft. mansions and 10+ acre estates. I've since worked in a number of them that were some of the most expensive homes in the county.
  4. On New Years Day we made our rounds and visited family, and we paid ol pops a visit. He lives in the local mountains, there was even a tad bit of snow left from the last snow he had! After we spent a few hours there we ventured up the mountain some more and let the kids roll in the big snow. But here are a few random shots of dad and his shop. Image below is what is leftover of his cedar pile of wood, he loves making birdhouses, and he sells them locally. Next up is his old 70's vintage Craftsman Band Saw And a late model Craftsman Contractors Table Saw he uses for secondary cuts or he leaves a dado on it at all times. Dad and I, two knuckle heads! Dad and Grandpa A smaller Delta Bench top drill press Delta Rockwell Table Saw with a Bies fence system A good ol Delta Scroll Saw His main go to compressor, he only uses it for finish nails, he doesn't believe in cleaning up so he certainly doesn't need air for that! Yes folks, it does snow in southern California, we actually had about 4" on the ground a few days before this. Over all image of the shop. Dad and I build this shop back in 2004. Rear shot of his shop Another rear shot. And just for kicks and giggles, Dad's home! A restored single wide trailer, we got this place for a song and dance, and pops loves it up in the hills. Thanks folks for sharing a bit of my Dad's place with us, yall come back now ya here!

    Cedar Bowl

    Turned a bowl today.
  6. Well, I was going to post this last night after we got to our son and daughter in law's new house that they just moved into, but I had to help my son put together the new sofa/bed that Tami and I were going to sleep on. We got done after midnight so I figured that it would have to wait until this morning. In Part 2 of this project of making a Cedar Lined Walnut Blanket Chest for Nori, my first grand daughter that will be born this coming November, John Moody, Ron Dudelston and I were all at John Moody's house to hang out for a few days and we were building this chest together in John Moody's shop. In the first post on this project we got all the lumber milled down and got the panels glued up. So in this post we got all the panels sanded down and cut to final dimensions, cut and dry fit the dovetail joints, cut and fit the plywood bottom, glued up the chest, rough sanded the chest, routed the top, attached the top, and milled the cedar boards that will line the inside of the chest. It took a lot more sanding than we planned on the panels as we got some bowing in the glue ups which cost us extra time over our short weekend together. But we finally got everything down to the right thicknesses and got the dovetails cut. Here are John and Ron as we were working on the dry fit. Those dovetails turned out great! John has the Dovetail Jig from Peachtree Woodworking and it was really easy to do. After getting the birch plywood bottom notched and fitted into the dadoes and making sure that it wall perfectly square, it was time to get it glued up. Taping the inside corners with the Blue Painter's Tape sure was a time/work saver to deal with the squeeze out during the clamping. I can't tell you how many times John told Ron and I during this build "Don't ask me how I know this, but we need to do/not do ___________ or it will mess up the chest." Since he has made quite a few blanket chests his experience and wisdom was great to have. After letting the glue dry overnight, we got up early on Monday morning to get as much done as possible before Ron and I had to head back up north to Indiana. Ron got all the dovetail joints sanded down flush and they all look great! After getting the rough sanding done, we did the measurements and cut and routed the decorative edge on the top and then mounted the top using 3 of the Rockler chest hinges. We had hoped to get more of the chest done, but ran out of time to get the bottom trim and lining the inside with the cedar and do the final sanding. So Ron will do the final sanding and I will head up there later this week and we finish the trim and cedar lining at in his shop. After that I will be taking it to my kid's house and putting a few coats of a wipe on oil/varnish finish before Tami and I head back home to California. I had a great time working with John and Ron on this project. We were all worn out as it was a lot of work to get done over a weekend, but it turned out great. Before we blew off all the dust and carried it out to Ron's van, the last thing was to get John and Ron's signatures on the bottom in permanent ink so Nori will know how much love was put into this chest. Once I get the final finish on I will post some more photos. Here is photo of all of us at the Moody's before Ron, Dorothy, Tami and I headed back to Indiana.
  7. Here are the latest recipe boxes. I found that when the top is cut off that it becomes shorter and the box becomes lager due to the sloping front. this created a slight problem when installing the metal hinges to line up the front of the box with the top. I compensated by going to the Rob Corson wooden dowel hinge on the cedar boxes I like that setup better and will do it on any future boxes. Also will do a separate tutorial on how it is done. Herb
  8. My daughter wanted me to make her an old time santa head that she could hang on her porch. This is what I came with. The back board is about 28" x 11". I built it as I went along, revising, removing, adding, etc. I made it out of fencing cedar. She didn't mention color, I like the . wood grain showing. I hope she likes it,
  9. Don't think I've posted these here, but ran across the photo doing some searching and clean up. These were made from mostly re-cycled cedar (legs were from Restore, slats from old rough-sawn siding). They come apart and the seat slides into the back making a compact and easy to carry package. I keep them in the camper for outdoor seating.
  10. This was a project earlier this summer. I removed the PT decking planks and replaced them with cedar. Also replaced the steps and top rails.
  11. So I had posted a few weeks back about the humidor I was building. At that time I had assembled the outer case and started the finish. Since then I have lined it with Spanish cedar, built storage trays and conditioned the cedar by wetting it with distilled water a few times.
  12. So everything with this was a first time for me. I need ALOT of practice lol. Im a perfectionist so i see every little flaw but pretty happy with how it turned out and first satin ive ever bought or done...........do you guys smell that???? Mmmmmmmmm donuts........
  13. OK, guys. I need some advice. I am in the process of building a replacement mailbox post out of cedar for my mother. What do you fellas recommend as a preservative? I don't want it to age naturally and "Gray" down. However, I understand that stains can be problematic and require periodic renewal. In reality, when my 96 year old mother goes, so do I. The chances of me having to restain the post are slim. As my father used to say, "let the next guy worry about it". In the meantime, I'm looking for a product that goes on easily, does a good job of weather protection and will look nice.

    Draw knife

    I was wondering where can I find a draw knife,looked around here but far an in between,I have some cedar I want to use but need to cut off the bark
  15. I have been experimenting with some soft cedar with inside out turning. I came up with a couple of pieces of junk, but it proved that one idea worked, while the other failed. I didn't throw them away, when I walk by them, I get other ideas. Anyway I cut one in two pieces and made some great looking Christmas ornaments, I'll get some pictures out tomorrow when the finish is where I want it.
  16. I started this cedar chest a month back and then got bronchitis and couldn't seem to get over it. Anyway back on the chest and will hopefully finish it this week. Yesterday I got the dovetails sanded flush and got the skirts cut and installed around the bottom. I have the top panel already glued, just need to cut to size and put on the trim, install the hinges and it will be ready for finish.
  17. Recently I was given a 12 inch wide 10 foot board that was 1 inch thick.  It was stored out in the weather for several years.  Upon cleaning up the board including all the cupping I found that this was a cedar board and that the grain had been brought out most dramatically. I decided to make a bowl with it.  This bowl is 10 inches in diameter and 3 3/4 inches tall.  This bowl was totally cut using the scroll saw.  The rings were cut at 22.5 degrees.  The bowl was sealed with tung oil then top coated with 4 coats of satin lacquer.     DW

  22. While I was in Nashville, I got a call from the Egg Dealer we are building tables for. He had a special request for a square small table for a large Egg. The size is 30"x30" and the height is 34". I called my son since we were gone and he got on it and got it made and finished up on Sunday afternoon. We are thinking we are going to make several of these to take to some shows we are doing. We have six more to do that are the regular size this next week. Man we are cutting a lot of cedar lately.
  23. This weekend in the workshop we started on another custom Green Egg Table. This is one as the others is made from Cedar. The legs are full 4" cedar and have 4" casters on the bottom. I am making a solid top for this table since it will have two cabinets in the right side. The cabinets will allow them a place to store their charcoal on a full extension pull out shelf and in the other cabinet, two full extension drawers to hold cooking utensils and other items. We got the top glued solid and the cabinets sides, back and divider installed. I am hoping to get this delivered this week. Tonight I will be making the doors and pull out shelves. Then the hole will get cut for the Egg to sit in and the finish applied. This is one large table, six feet long,, 30 1/2" deep and 34" tall. Everything on it is solid cedar.
  24. Last week we finished a couple of Green Egg table for several customers. We had one picked up Thursday and it went to Nashville, TN and the other two were for local folks. We loaded them on the trailer and headed out Saturday morning to deliver them. This one we put under the cover of the patio and installed the egg in the nest. The next one went to a new house on the lake. Man what a view they had and what was really nice is they had used Cedar for the columns on the front and some accent places, so this table is going to fit right in. We delivered the table and they had just purchased their Green Egg and it was being delivered and would be installed by the vendor.
  25. After getting back from my long road trip, I picked up a load of Cedar I had at the saw mill. I have had to jump into full production of Green Egg Tables as I got behind on orders while I was away. This weekend and through last night we have three table assembled, two finished and one that I need to cut the hole for the egg to nest in. The shop is getting full and I still have two more to build. It has been all hands in the shop and lots of work getting done. The next one I start is a custom with two cabinets and three drawers. It will be 6' in length and 30 1/2" deep 34" tall. I am starting the glue up for the top since it will have a solid top. I'll have more to share with you later....
