My Adventure at Burning Man

Posted October 30, 2014

DUST STORMS 2

Burning Man is an annual week-long festival, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance, held at the end of August in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. This summer, I had the pleasure to work with artist David Best on the construction of the Temple of Grace, envisioned as a spiritual and sacred space.

I arrived in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert on August 18th, one week before the gates opened at the 2014 Burning Man festival. I was part of a 100-person volunteer group that camped in various tents and trailers, several hundred yards from the construction site. We were there to build the Temple of Grace.

Impressive Customer Review of WoodWorks Season 5 DVD

Posted Oct.20, 2014

WoodWorks Season 5

We recently received a very impressive customer review of our WoodWorks Season 5 DVD.  His feedback gives a great overview of the DVD and of what he feels our DVD offers to fellow woodworkers.  He starts off comparing WoodWorks Season 5 DVD to our Marquetry & Inlay DVD.

From Gary Bell, Kansas:

I must say that David’s DVD entitled “Double Bevel Marquetry” is without a doubt the best DVD that he has ever produced.Wait a minute, you might say to yourself; “I thought this was a review of “Woodworks Season 5” DVD?

Correct.  This review starts with a reference to the “Double Bevel Marquetry” DVD [here after referred to as “DBM”] because any of David’s fans/students who have any interest at all in DBM, undoubtedly were introduced to it as they first watched “Woodworks Season 5” episode 508 when it aired on DIY.  And, having acquired a taste for DBM would have then had that yen for DBM satiated either with a class at David’s studio [like me] or by later purchasing the DBM DVD [like me].

As I watched 508, I nostalgically said to myself, “Yep, this is where it all started!”

But it is not just DBM.  It is also bent lamination, joinery, wood grain and wood movement, coopering, design, chair geometry, inlay, fixing mistakes and applying finishes.

Follow Up to Turned Bowl with Ebony Rim Article: How to Glue On A Waste Block

 

706 Ebony Rimmed Bow.jpg 800 BY 600

Posted September 29, 2014 by David J. Marks

I received an excellent question from a woodturner who had read my article Turned Bowl with Ebony Rim  in our September 2014 newsletter:/

I was just getting ready to turn a bowl from a blank that is not much thicker than the desired depth. This was leaving me nothing for the usual tenons.  I asked the turning fellows in my woodworking club about gluing a waste block on the bottom and they thought I was crazy. In your latest (September 2014) newsletter, I see you are doing just that with your “Turned Bowl with Ebony Rim.

Couple of questions:

1) How do you form the 3 inch to 4 inch flat spot for the gluing?  

2)What glue do you use?  

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Regards,

 Andrew
