I'm Fuming!!

That's right . . .  I am fuming some white oak with ammonia. This is a process that apparently was popular with some of the mission style/arts and crafts furniture makers years ago where white oak is…Continue

Hai Burton,

Thanks for the info.  The process looks more like the ammonia printing process of the earlier days. The drawings done on tracing paper were exposed to coated paper under u.v. light. Then the paper was exposed to ammonia fumes in a chamber.  The outcome was the typical blue print.

Most of the woods used for furniture making in India are dark coloured woods. But a lot of soft woods which are light coloured are used for making hand crafted products.  I am involved with a few crafts persons. I would like to try out your method to see if it works. Then the colouration will be natural and permanent.  The effect also could be stunningly good.  I will try it out and let you know what happens.  Thanks once again for the info.

Now THAT sounds like a deal on lumber. I would hate to tell you how much I spend on hardwoods here. I do pay a premium for the chance to pick through and select the exact boards I want, and I don't have any place to store much excess wood. When I start a woodworking project, the cars leave their spots in the garage, and the tools and bench roll away from the walls. Someday, I hope to build a cedar strip kayak, which works best with western red cedar, a species we have to import, again at high costs. Lucky for you that you have a great source!

Ash wood seems easier to work with and it sands down like soft butter. Yes the posts are solid.The grain on ash it not as tight lines like Oak but I woild not hesitate on using it again. I bought a 1/2 truck load mostly 8 footers and between 6 and 10 inch wide for 70.00.Did I get axed????A friend of mine has a mill and has over 300 acres of Ceder ,fir and Ash on property.I dried it for around 9 months before I got moisture down to 8-9 %.Just intime for winter project.

Kreg Project Center Work Station

The Kreg Project Center is great by itself, but 2 KPC's are better than 1 when you want to set up a 12 ft. work station in a couple minutes.…

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino. 

      I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs.  I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled…
