Part 1: There can never be too much

1995 days ago by PurpLev | 10 comments »

It seems like everytime someone says that he has “extra” lumber, or “more than enough” people jump to say that there can never be too much, as someone said: “there is no such thing is just enough, and too much is just right”.

So I took the table saw, shop vac, outfeed roller, and everything else that was in the way out of the garage and started organizing the stack of shorts I got. to the ordinary person passing by, I might have looked like a psycho – cleaning board by board with compressed air to clean the wood – from the wood dust on it (these all came from a manufacturing shop and were covered...

Part 5: hurricane Irene effect

1033 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

The town usually takes broken trees to be ground down but with the recent storm there just too many so they just dropped it at the transfer station and people have been able to cut it down for fire wood. Not all looks suitable for woodworking and the majority is just to ok big to handle without a proper machine but one can still dream
