There's this word I'm thinking of.... - 17 replies
And I’m hoping you know what it is. No need to respond, tho I’d love to see a few anyway. Just say it to yourself, and share it with others. It got popular back in the 60’s (I know some of you remember, even after the 60’s lol), but seemed to fade away to a memory we keep up in a mental closet to peek at every now and the...

Check this out - 16 replies
I got this hunk of maple, along with (3) 10’ sections of the 36”- 42” trunk, from where it fell over in a guys front yard. He said he had no idea how to chop it into firewood. Guess I saved him some work! For reference, I’m 6’4…

I got several, still damp but close to ready. I could kiln dry them as needed. Some around 6’ long, some around 9’, as wide as 30” and 2” or 3” thick. Lots of tiger striping and burled edging (live). They are somewhat heavy, hey they are big. I’m in NW Oregon for shipping concerns. 10 bucks a board...

Firewood Gloat - 6 replies
A neighbor was busy a-sawin’ on his old big leaf maple tree he had fallen in his yard. It was 60” across, and the guy had just been working on the limbs when I saw it. Asked the young guy cutting it what he was going to do with the trunk piece… he looked at me with pleading eyes and said it was his dads decision, would ...

Revelation - 17 replies
Hi LJ’ers, I have been reading the posts about the hopelessness of apparent addictions to this website, and couldn’t help but agree that it is indeed a troublesome situation. I haven’t been around all that long, and here I sit at my puter typing things to complete strangers ( I’m strange myself, no offense intended). Agai...

Bandsaw Blade Sharpening - 5 replies
Hi all My partner and I have a wager going on this one; when servicing a bandsaw blade, do you sharpen the teeth first, or do you “set” them first? Or does it matter? Any info greatly appreciated.

Going for "Hick of The Week" award - 9 replies
Okay, I’m letting my guard down I know, but I gotta ask. I have bunches of smaller burled and figured maple pieces that are beautiful, but they are going to need to sit for a while. I’m worried about bugs and the spalting turning to out and out rot. So, can I use an oven bag, like the ones I use to cook up turkeys, and put some in th...

Pitch removal - 6 replies
I have my eyes on a big old douglas fir with a burl on it that is about 6’ tall, 3’ wide, and at least 3’ deep (can’t really measure, but it sticks out that far). Been chatting around, people seem to think it a waste of time due to the probably vast amounts of pitch it may hold; and that the pitch turns white and chrystal...

Locust wood - 5 replies
Hello all. I’m hoping for information on Locust woods. The black variety grows like a weed here in NW Oregon, and I’ve seen it growing pretty much state-wide. I’m not sure how to recognize the golden locust tree, but I’ve heard it’s around too. I had some logs given to me in an effort to turn them into something bes...
