  1. Delivered the finished frame ordered by a friend of Mimi's. Their design and choice of wood. I used threaded inserts and bolts to attach the frame to the base in case the glass ever needed repaired Those are the only metal fasteners used in the build. All four edges of the glass set in dados. I modified the original design from 3/4" thick base material to 3/8" thick material. The holder is designed to set on a window sill. To reinforce the top 45° miters, I used a cherry spline. It sort of matches the staff color in the design. I'm told this symbol is called a Caduceus. The Sketchu
  2. Just finished removing the top of my 30 Y.O. work bench. It was pretty beat up with numerous saw kerfs and splotches of Bondo and cured resin. Not to mention errant drill bit traces, screw and/or nail holes holes. It was two full sheets of 3/4 MDF, covered with 1/2"X2" X various length pine strips and, banded with 3/4 red oak. It was one heavy bench top, for sure. I'm guessing nearly 200 lbs. It took all Phyl and I could muster to get it in the truck bed. The support structure remains in great shape and will soon have a new top. I'll get some pics of the supports tomorrow.
  3. I just talked to a guy about some wood he wants to sell. He said he has 7 pieces 7’ long, 12” wide and 3.5” thick. He said they are old and dry. He thinks they are oak or hickory. He is asking around $100 for all of it. He is going to send me some pictures tomorrow. That would make a lot of bowls if it is any good. He said there is not any rot or cracks. Wish me luck.
  4. The tea jar lids have been well received at the honey farm. Owner told me the ladies love them. She said a lady bought two of them and remarked: "it's too bad you don't have them to fit the jars your herbs are in". Cindy, the owner said, "I started texting you before she was done talking". Do you think you could make even a smaller size?" So, I'll deliver these in the morning. They are much smaller at only 2" I. D. I did nine of them to start, we'll see how they do and go from there. The jars are pretty small, only 2" diameter at the top.
  5. Here are a few more bowls from the past, circa 2015. When I was working for a landscape company in the Florida Panhandle, I was able to obtain free wood fairly easily. These are White Cedar and Live Oak. Both are surprisingly pretty. I especially like the dark brown coloration of the Live Oak. And the Cedar, well its Cedar, need I say more.
  6. Its a bit on the thick side of material for pens I realize this. How ever I wanted to give it a go. I wanted to try Oak for the first pen since it seems like a bit easier bunch of material to attempt a first one. But cut off 5 inches of the 30 inch long 1 inch piece of oak that I picked up a couple of months ago. I'm thinking just doing a single piece but I'm trying to also figure out exactly how to get it mounted to the lathe unless I need to pre glue the brass insides in first before I start turning. Not sure exactly what to begin with..... besides of course drilling the hole out which
  7. I took my wife to work this morning because of the freezing rain. On the way back I noticed a double oak pedistal and top on the side with the trash cans as its trash day. The trash truck usually s there just before dawn but with the sleet and rain they may not be out at all today. Anyway I went home thought about it as it was around the corner from my house and stated the truck. Went inside and paced. Took an ice scraper too the truck. Can't get it with a dolly as the sidewalks are cover in ice and slick. Got my truck up there and it's still there. There are a lot of people who
  8. Hello everyone. I do not actually work with wood, my father does. He's just not that good with internet He asked me to look for some information about how to air dry 4/4 red oak properly because he had some problems as I understand. Does he need any dehumidifiers and fans? That's the question from me. I was reading that one guy was using 2 dehumidifiers and a fan for that. Let me know if I get it completely wrong.
  9. Again. Not quite sure what will come out of there...yet. Have a lot of candy bar sized pieces of Walnut.... Couple pieces of Curly Maple.... A few pieces of White oak and some Pine.. Most are about ..1/2" thick or so. Been using a plane to square them up a bit......have to watch when I pull the plane back......the front end of the plane would slip off the end of the board, and then a finger gets cut from the sharp corners of the board. OW! needed to slow it down a notch. No pictures just yet, still not sure WHAT sort of thing the Single
  10. I was ask to make this paddle for a friends sister who is a teacher. She got her first good teaching job and he wanted to give her this as strictly a joke. However if they were still allowed to use these in school we might not see all the problems we see today! Just my opinion. Made from some nice White Oak.
  11. Keepsake box for the grand girl. 10.5 x 6.5 x 4", cherry oak walnut & mahogany.
  12. Here is another oak hollow form with black and orange dye. Was supposed to have a collar but it warped too much so opened the top a little. It is about 4 inches in diameter.
  13. From the album: John's Shop

    I recently inherited this beautiful workbench. The top is 4" thick, 6.5' long by 24" wide with a tool well at the rear. The top is composed of Maple and Oak billets, there are dog holes and the original owner made his own dogs out of aluminum rounds, they work very well. The end vise is large and very powerful. The cabinet is made of oak, with oak drawers and walnut pulls. I will be using the bench as my primary work surface for all I do, I cannot wait to start work on it. I purchased the hold fasts from a fellow on ebay, he hand forges them and sells them at a very reaso

    From the album: Lecterns and Podiums

    The verbiage was cut in with a Carvewright. Red oak laminated over walnut.
  15. friend of mine is into that Black Powder stuff. He had a jig, to hold a revolver steady so he could reload it. he had this thing.. The butt of the grips sit into the gouge area...just doesn't sit in tightly, was cut at the wrong angle...Felt area... Is where the cylinder sits, with the hammer at half-cock....only..the hammer won't go that far...makes it hard to rotate the cylinder. hinge wasn't done the best, either. Bought some 3/4" x 4" x 24" White Oak..some new hinges, and a set of Dremel bits... Bandsaw to cut 2 pieces. Blade has way too muc
  16. Our local Elks lodge recently did a minor renovation to their kitchen and waitress area. Part of that renovation was the construction of five new cabinets to blend in with their existing units. Today, I’ll deliver the final base unit that will be installed in the waitress area. I’m pretty sick of building cabinets right now.
