  • "Found" or driftwood

    Does anyone have a supplier or know where to purchase 'found' wood for sculpture type carvings? Bristol cone pine seems to be one name I see in articles. Any suggestions?

    Don't know about where you live, but around here all of the reservoirs a chock full of standing timber that's been flooded, drift wood etc. If there are any reservoirs around you could walk the bank and pick up nthe drift wood or talk some fisherman friend into cutting some off of the staniding timber for you (or get a fishing pole and go with him).

      Thanks for the idea. I live in central Kansas, but there are a couple of reservoirs to check. I would like to find some different kinds of wood not native to Kansas. I have used cypress knees and like them too.

        Bristle cone pine is very very old and from what I understand most of it is protected...Try to make contact with someone on the Northern Calif. coast for some redwood driftwood.

              I admit it... I splurged on a new "toy"

              So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
              I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
              In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.

              Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

              Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
