walnut

Filed under: projects — howarth frank @ 10:25 pm

I scored a second batch of wood, this time walnut.  A tree had come down about a mile form the shop.  I was busy cutting it up to day with the chainsaw.  I started turning one piece last night and the wood looks like it is going to be beautiful.

cherry bowl

Filed under: projects — howarth frank @ 9:03 am

One of the smaller bowl blanks that I had made seemed dry enough to do a final turning on.  It turned out rally well.  The batch of cherry that I picked up for free last summer is turning out to have been quit a find.

ripping

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 10:18 pm

I have been using an 80 tooth cross cutting blade on the table saw for everything. It gives a nice cut but on some things. Such as ripping a piece of stock, it burns the cut a little. I got a ripping blade this past weekend and what a difference. I ripped down a few pieces for a picture frame and it felt like I was cutting butter with a hot knife.

cherry

Filed under: projects — howarth frank @ 6:44 pm

I bought a bunch of cherry from Urban Hardwoods. I like the idea of what he is doing as a business model.  The cherry was ruff sawn and I finally got around to planing a piece of it to day.  It is very nice.
