When I had some land cleared in 2008 I kept all the large poplar and red oak and had it milled and stickered to air dry. Initially I was only thinking of flooring, but I had done some woodwork as a youth so it occurred to me it might be fun again. We built a place like a carriage house - with a 3-car garage on the bottom and an apartment above. Long story short, the garage is now a wood shop and the yard is littered with stacks of wood. I live near Indianapolis and have a second shop in my garage. It is well stocked with red oak, quarter-sawn red oak, and poplar.
-- Some problems are best solved with an optimistic approach. Optimism shines a light on alternatives that are otherwise not visible.

With an area of 1000sf, a 10’ ceiling and 2 large garage doors my shop is difficult to heat. In fact I didn’t even try. Until now. Okay, does this count as a tool? I dunno, but I bet there’s a few out there with cold shops li...
There was one mistake made. The miller was pushing a little too hard (milling too fast) and the blade was getting dull. When you do that, the blade will tend to wander resulting in a wavy cut. Unfortunately he was right in the middle of quarter...
