New Website!!!

New Website

After putting this off for some time I finally have my new website up and running. 

I am still not sure if I am 100% happy with it, however it is a start.

On the site I have put up several photos, some from the old blog and some that I never shared.  These photos are sorted into different galleries so make sure to look at them all!

After some frustration I was able to get a contact page running, so you can send me e-mails!!!

There are also links to be able to find Tim’s Woodworking in different social media sites.  Videos that I have made and a new Blog to follow.

And the last thing I can think of is the calendar.  If there is an upcoming craft show I am going to be at I will list it here.

As always, thoughts and comments are welcome!

Oh, the site is…

See you there.

- Tim

As an afterthought, I am sure I will report to here as well.

More crates...

These crates are 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 6".  

To get the graphics of the two of them I used a method by Steve Ramsey #ForMereMortals

Wood - a Christmas Present???

Christmas Eve I was turning a pen. While I was, I thought that woodworking, specifically turning is like opening a Christmas present. You do not know what the wood will look like when you are done.

The wood is Bethlehem Olive.

Not long ago I went to the coast.  Specifically the Moro Bay San Simeon area.  While I was there I want some driftwood.  I was not sure what I was going to do with it, but I wanted some.

I picked up several pieces.  A few weeks later I deiced to try and make a pen from the wood.  It took several tries as the wood is very fragile. After multiple attempts I did it!

Here are pictures of the wood, several as I was making blanks from them and one of the final product.

Turning Pens

I am learning how to turn pens.  It has been fun but frustrating.  But it does come down to being a learning experience.

Here are some examples of what I have made so far.

The woods used (from left to right) are: Bethlehem Olive, Bethlehem Carob,  Bocote and Zebra wood.

The two Bethlehem woods are from Bethlehem.  The olive wood trees “are over 300 years old, and some have been growing since the time of Christ.” The wood is taken from branches that have been pruned or fallen limbs and/or trees.
