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.

(I posted some of this on someone else’s Forum post and thought, that’s pretty good I ought to have that post on my own site, I’ve even got a blog called Setting up Shop, so here it is. Sorry if you’ve seen it before) I...
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...
I can make a crosscut sled in about an hour. I put this off for a long time and when I finally did it, I wondered why I waited so long. No, it won’t be fancy, but it will be functional and accurate. Here’s the first one I did: ...
