1932 Oak transition molding

1932 Oak transition molding Hey Lumberjacks
I was asked by a client to help solve a problem with an old Oak floor during a remodeling. The door opening that you now see in the picture was not there prior to the start of the remodel job. Once the wall was removed to make way for the new door opening – an ugly site was exposed. The floors in the two adjoining rooms had been sanded more than once over the last 50 years – leaving a large 3/8” hump of Oak where the wall once stood. The client did not want to sand the floors or attempt any blending of stain. So I decided to mount my router on a plexiglass plate and stand it off with 1/2” plywood pieces making router plane. Once the offending hump was taken down to floor level I started to build a transition piece. The client had some of the stained and varnished old floor ripped up from the remodel. Since the wood was so old and some pieces even breaking apart I trimmed each piece removing the battered tongues and grooves. With a new set of bits I placed my own tongues and grooves in each board. Once complete I started the glue up process. I then took my contour gauge and traced out the door frames. The scroll saw worked great to cut the intricate pattern. I rounded the leading edges to lessen the trip hazard. As you can see I left the four returns long to be trimmed by the carpenter when case moldings are installed. Mission accomplished – all flooring matches – and preserve the look of the old 1932 Oak floor.
Thx for checking out the Oak transition molding

AWFS Fresh Wood Award

AWFS Fresh Wood AwardI was asked to create the 2021 Fresh Wood Best of Show Trophy. I am so honored to be in the company of those who have made them before me: Sam Maloof, Garry Knox Bennett, Paul Schrch, and Judson Beaumont.I completed the sculpture and it's on its way to AWFS which I will be presenting on Thursday 22nd.Entitled Pursuit, this sculpture is made of domestic curly maple, FRP, and 24k gold leaf. Its circular form represents the evolution of a woodworker's career: a continuous search to create something unique, reaching for one's personal gold standard of accomplishment in craftsmanship and design. The interior bark adds whimsey and interest: bark could never be bent in such a way, and woodworkers in-the-know will be captivated by it and possibly mystified. I created it by taking a mold off real bark, casting it in FRP, applying it to the interior curve, and painting it to appear real.HERE is how I made it
