Elysian Wood Nuts Well as I am sitting here writing this, I am looking outside to our first snowfall of the season and although this one doesn’t amount to much and will soon be gone, I am giving thanks. Thanks that all my elysian wood nuts’ are in and stored up for our three wood stoves. We have a wood stove in the kitchen, sunroom/sitting room and then in our living room there is the one I call, ‘the beast’, who sits only to consume food in his belly. For all hi...
I’ve almost finished my first adirondak chair. I had got 13 scrap (3ft long) pieces of treated deck planks and didn’t want to put them to waste. I cut and finished the back of the chair yesterday. I have cut out the seat area/legs, but have not put them together yet. The seat doesn’t run in the traditional way most of the chairs run, but I still think it looks good. Hopefully I will be able to get out to the shop later and finish it. I will be posting a picture when it is do...
Well I barely started some rust removal on the blade and found that the plane is a Mohawk Shelburne. I don’t know much about it, but know that it was made by Miller Falls, and was a less expensive model. I don’t know the date, but from the sounds of it, it is old. Any information on Mohawk Shelburne is appreciated. I will post pictures as time permits, but I’m just barely tinkering now. Thanks for the help.

Hello All, I have been wanting to compile the steps I go through, in creating my tiny boxes. Tonight I finally got it done. http://bit.ly/aGMa0G Brian
Sorry for the bad quality photo. More pics to come
Nothing ground-breaking in this entry of this blog series. With the surfaces planed, I next turn to my jointer to joint one edge of each board. The following pictures are more less for your amusement as I set about jointing one edge of each board on a tiny 4 1/2” bench-top jointer. In the last photo you can see something I’m quite fond of – a new peg board Melissa helped me setup a few weeks back. I now have more or less all my measuring and marking tools organized in...
After much debate I moved ahead to build a Bandsaw type saw mill. So, I begain looking for the parts needed to build this saw. Being a frugal person my first stop was Ebay. For $50 I got a used EDCO SB24-35W Self Propelled Walk Behind Concrete Saw Why concrete saw, well for 50 bucks I got-a Hydrostatic transmission Wisconsin (Gas)engine and may other parts that will come in handy
We have just started all the woodwork in a 6000 sq. ft. brewery restaurant. I will be posting photos of all the projects as we go. The wood work includes the complete front entry with seeting, hostess stand, tables, base, case, paneling, custom doors, and of course a massive custom bar with copper bar top. I am so excited about having this oppurtunity in these times. I feel like I can let my creativity out on this one. I look forward to sharing our progress.
The name mahogany applies to many different kinds of tropical hardwood. However, there are only three species of true mahogany, and they are all indigenous to the Americas: Swietenia mahagoni (L.) Jacq., S. macrophylla King, and S. humilis Zucc. Mahogany is a neotropical hardwood. It is one of the hardest woods which grows in the neotropic region. Any timber which is commercially labeled as “mahogany” (without qualification) is usually derived from the Meliaceae family, a ̶...
