Studio Cabinet

Here is a picture of a small Studio Cabinet I made awhile ago. More work that meets the eye with all the drawers. Turned out nice though, don’t you think?

Old Lumber

A picture of how I clean up some older boards using my old Jack Plane.

Doing it this way versus my planer, I can see if there are any nails or ? That might be hidden. Saved me a lot of money over the years, doing it this way. Buying planer blades can get expensive.

Lots of shavings!

Looking for that special Flute

Here are a couple pictures that actually turned out quite nice. My wife took them while we were foraging for that special piece of wood, that I wanted, to make a special one of a kind, Walking Stick Flute.

Sometimes I walk for miles with no luck. Then the next time out, I find it within minutes. Go Figure. Ha Ha.

I did find a piece and the Flute Turned out Fantastic. The customer was very happy. And … that’s all that matters.

Wooden Computer Desk

Here is a desk I made using some very old lumber I had lying around for over twenty years. It turned out really nice and sold shortly after I had it made. Impressive piece, but a lot of work. It’s a one of a kind, as I wouldn’t make another. Ha Ha.

More Wooden flutes in the works

Here are a few pictures of some Flutes I am working on in the “Old Craftsman’s” Woodworking Shop. Still lots of work yet to be done. We call them FLUTURE FLUTES. The reason for that is, I make and tune them a lot different from most flute makers. You could call them the Flute of the Future. Which they are. Anyway, these pictures will give you an idea of what is involved. A lot of tedious work, but the end results makes it all worthwhile.

I don’t use any store bought parts, other than some select pieces of wood for the inlays. They are all my own design, which came from years of making them. Every one is unique in their own way.

Thought I would share.

New Cabinet with Electric fireplace

We looked around for a year or so and couldn’t find a good electric Fireplace. At least one that looks like real wood burning. Finally, we found one.

I then decided to take it one step further and build a custom cabinet, so we could insert the new Electric Fireplace into. Turned out nice, and thought I would share a few pictures. From start to finish. We are enjoying it.

Our Gift Shop

Here is a picture of some of the flutes I made just before the virus hit. Hopefully we will be able to open things back later on this summer. If not next year for sure. Got my fingers crossed. GW

Shave Horse

Here is a picture of a Shave Horse I made awhile ago. I made it using a piece of pine that I got from taking down one of our trees. An easy weekend project, that is sure coming in handy. It helps me hold things while making my Wooden Flutes.

Adirondack Swing

Here is the swing I just finished making. Turned out nice and will hang it come spring. I will put a finish on it and then a varnish. Once that is done will take another picture and let you have a look see.

Out for a Walk

Here are a couple pictures I took while out with a friend of mine awhile ago. We think as humans we are good at taking down trees, but these critters are pretty good at it too, and they don’t mind how large or how small they are. LOL One thing is for sure, they love Yellow Birch. Can’t say I blame them, as I like it too when cut into lumber for making some choice items in the woodworking shop. It has a unique grain in it that stands out when you hit it with a natural stain and add three coats of urethane. Thought I would share.

Shave Horse

Here is a Shave Horse I made for making my wooden Flutes. Makes a hard job easy.
