Reception deskA designer contacted me and worked with me to design this desk that I made for a great little local business with wonderful owners and employees.
The desk is is 2 1/4 inches thick and
Is 36 inches deep by 72 inches long.
I learned some new techniques making this desk and I learned it may be best to get a helper when I'm making something this big

Loghorses

LoghorsesHello Lumberjocks!
Here are my new sawhorses made specifically for milling logs. I made these using 3/4 MDO plywood. It is 8' long and holds a log at 32 from the ground. I use this with my new Granberg Alaskan sawmill. These loghorses hold the log off the ground making the milling process much more enjoyable and safer as well. The final picture is of some 4' long white pine boards made with the sawmill.
Thanks for looking,
Sam12

Rustic Burl Bowl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Rustic Burl BowlWay back in November, my brother-in-law procured a really big piece of burl wood for me:One part had a particularly nice ball of burl that I cut quite a few clock faces from, like this one:The hunk of burl got to the point that there was no way to cut any more clock faces from it. I've been staring at this mass of wood for weeks and only just realized that the place from which I cut the most clock faces actually sits nice and flat and would make a good base for a bowl.So, I went back to my roots. My very first wood working project came from a massive burl that I found while fly fishing. It ended up turning out pretty nicely and sits, even as I type this, on our coffee table:So, I set to work. First I took out a lot of the wood to make the bowl, alternating between paddle bits on my drill and a wood chisel and hammer. I finished off the bowl with my grinder.The grinder came in handy for knocking off the bark and grinding down the sap wood. This turned out to be a very interesting piece of wood because it has burl grain but it's also spalted in some places.I sanded the exterior with a palm sander and then finished it with wipe-on poly.I included the picture with the Sprite can so folks can get a sense of dimensions. These bowls require a lot of hours, but I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out. Again, another nice break from clocks.
