  1. This project started last spring when I had my neighbor cut this Silver Maple down. In August of 1999 I build this 10x12 building with a 10x11 deck. In the middle of the deck was a tree. And I thought hey that will look great and be so cool. Fast forward to 18 years more of growth and the tree is winning the battle against the deck. Roots pushing on posts, circumference of the tree is now 26 inches and I have cut rafters underneath 7 times to accommodate the tree. Frankly my great idea had a limited lifetime. So I took the deck apart, posts and all and down the tree came. Waited till spring this year and started on getting rid of the stump. Got that stump and some pesky roots out of the way. Now all the mistakes I made in the first build attempt come to light. Under that building I had poured concrete between the posts. Great idea and that has been nice when getting under it for repairs and such. BUT I only closed in three sides. The cats have been getting underneath the building through the hole under the deck. So my first order of business was to fix this mistake. I laid a concrete foundation and then added some blocks. Even remembered to put two conduits for the power. With that done I laid the post again. This time I sunk them 2 feet down. Don't even want to talk about how deep they were previously. To keep weeds out and make it easier to do the yard I laid a concrete foundation 1 inch under the deck level. Trying to keep that pesky water issue at bay. I saved a good portion of the previous deck boards so only a few new ones had to be bought. Someone gave me 2 gallons of deck stain so I gave everything 2 coats before, and sometimes right after assembly. Also added some more post to support the ramp to the deck. Over 52 inches I had to come up about 3 inches up to meet level with deck. Too small for a step, unless I wanted to kill myself so a ramp seemed better. Still working on this, I get about 2 hours a night, and two t-shirts soaked through in the current hot and humid Ga summer.
  2. Today I finished and hung my Christmas tree ornament display above the fireplace. It is 6 feet tall with 76 ornaments that I made of mostly of exotic woods. That includes the angel on top. I've made about 150, I do NOT sell them, I give them to my wife, daughters and grandchildren. I've made over 150 and enjoy each and every one

  5. Got these done. On to boxes.
  6. Finished this picture. Don't know why it got my attention enough to spend time trying to recreate it with wood.. Still not glued in so the gaps are still showing. I used baltic birch on this picture..
  7. Yep, I find when I get down to the almost done portion of shaping this stuff I need to slow down and smell the roses, kinda...step back and observe, so, I find if I start an other picture I give myself more time to think what should I do in slow motion more or less.. So this is the next picture that has me thoughts..me thoughts on how nature does its thing whether good or bad, it works its magic of destruction like it or not.. So while I'm running this picture through my little brain I am still deciding how much more I can grind off here and there off the other picture and have things still definable to the general public of one of two total peoples... Amazing how this tree has wrapped around this obstruction....Fruitless mulberry grows like that here in my part of this world...but have no idea where this picture was taken???
  8. Several years ago, I got an idea. I saw sales people with tiny battery powered lights on their shirts. I made a Christmas tree that used those lights , put the batteries below and added some colorful straight pins with a train and cars. It came out really cute
  9. This was posted on Facebook as a joke. However I found this tree very interesting. You can see where it was cut down and the color difference shows. Can't tell where it came from. Any idea what kind of tree this is?
  10. I have finished the box made from a damaged birch tree on my sons' property. He loved his birches. The box is a gift to my daughter-in-law. finished with 2 coats of brushed on varnish and 1 wipe on coat. The bark was finished using water based urethane.
  11. I have been working on some angel ornaments for Christmas. Here's where I am at so far. Have some bodies and wing sets done. The finished one in the front is what they will look like.
  12. This is the last of my sea Urchin shells. The difficult part was getting a good fit between the shell and the wood. I solved that with some very dense foam from Micheals, it is 1" dia X 1" long. I CA glued it to a dowel and turned it to thickness. Then used goop to stick it to the shell, lightly clamped it overnight. Same on both ends. I turned the Purple Heart pieces and used goop to attach to the foam.
  13. I'm from Ohio and I wondered why I have never heard of any one using Buckeye wood in any project. George Washington loved the tree because of the flowers. Of course there are the Ohio State Buckeyes. After a bit of research I quickly found out that the way Michigan Wolverines describes a buckeye is true. "a poisonous nut on a worthless tree"
  14. Or the stupidity in trying to use it. I don't know which but it sure bit me in the Keaster today I spied a marvelously lovely tree that the storm crews took down on the road side Maple lots of black flecks interesting grain just lovely. So I did what any turner might do I went and got a hunk. A HONKIN HUGE HUNK It required a 4 sheave block and tackle and a ramp to get the piece in my truck. Was all I could do to tip the thing over even with a 5 foot peavy. Well I trimmed it up and with my saw and the thing had nails and wire in it. Like a fool I persevered telling myself that it'd be character. One $100 carbide tipped chain saw blade later I have it on the lathe. Apparently they used to use high carbon heat treated steel for barbed wire. I tell myself it's OK coz I got a Diamond wheel for my chain saw sharpener. The cost of beauty. I start peeling off waste and hit the barbed wire. I chisel out as much as I can. It's no good. I try to saw it off with the chain saw. IT's no good. They had been wrapping wire around that tree since it was maybe 6" in diameter. I gotta get a metal detector.
  15. When I was a young man, I helped clean up tree trimmings then loaded them in the truck for my brother. He would take the tree down by cutting it in firewood sized pieces. He shut his saw down and yelled for the crew to come see something. We looked down at a piece that, at one time was two limbs. They had grown together to form a large oval shaped tree trunk. When he cut it he also cut thru the center of a golf ball someone had placed between the two limbs many years ago. Of course we didn't have cell phone cameras then and the phone we had had a dial

  17. On my birthday, my daughter bought me a lot of different wood blocks at Rockler. Some exotic, some very hard, some very soft. They were all labeled with abbreviations and I couldn't guess most of them. Anyway i was wondering how I could use a lot of them on one project. Then I remembered a large wooden picture I made years ago. It was flowers cut out of different woods. So I decided to make this one a tree. It came out OK, except when I sprayed a finish on it, some of the colors didn't come out as I thought. The two lower limbs on the left look like the same color, however when they were unfinished they were very different. I'm giving it to my daughter for her birthday
  18. A beautiful old walnut tree was taken down (reasons unknown) about 1/2 mile from the Easy Wood Tools office here in Lexington. So what's a guy to do?!?! Like opening a Christmas present!
  19. From the album: Collage of Interesting Images

    Just a really neat ol picture of some loggers.
  20. ​When I moved to Colorado, I became aware of the many different trees that I had no idea what they were. Can there be that much difference in trees between Ohio and Colorado? Then I learned that most of the trees here in my area are not native and were planted by home/ranch owners. One day my daughter asked me what kind of tree was in her back yard. I looked and it really threw me, never, ever seen anything like it. Very different, as you can see from the picture. I asked, I researched and found out it is a variety of Aspen, a tree native to Colorado. I also found out something really amazing. The Aspen is the largest living organism in the world!! How can that be? Aspen tree roots join and form one organism and can cover vast areas. A dry area of trees can be nourished by a wet area quite a distance away. That amazed me. There seem to be different varieties, not all trees have the pattern in the picture. So why haven't we used this wood in wood working? It is a light pithy wood and some call it junk wood because it has no good use, not even firewood. I don't call it junk, I call it one of natures great things.
