  • Introducing Myself

    Hi, I'm helluvawreck. I am a woodworker and a beginning woodcarver (10 months). I have been a hobby woodworker for 40 years and am in the manufacturing business. We manufacture architectural moldings and other products. I am in the engineering and maintenance end of the business and we have a machine shop. I have also been a molder setup man and a molder knife grinder. I have also been in involved in general woodworking production for 40 years.

    After taking up woodcarving as a hobby I have also become interested in other woodworking crafts such as scroll sawing. I am also in the process of learning how to do folkart painting in order to be able how to decorate my woodworking projects with paint.

    I hang out a lot at Lumberjocks and have a blog there where you can see some of my woodcarving.

    I hope that I will learn a lot from this site about scroll sawing.

            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

            The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

            I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
