Shop Upgrade #1: If You Call This A Shop, That Is...

10-10-2007 12:47 PM by OutPutter | 2 comments »

I hope you will not expect my shop to pass the MsDebbieP LJ inspection just yet. I’ve been a little laid up lately since I broke my leg in a stupid home accident. (I jumped when I should have walked around.) But, I’ve got to get some equipment so I can make some small boxes. I’ll be cleaning out a lot of the junk to make room and I’m taking advice over in the Forum section at LJ to find out what tools, equipment, etc. I need to spend my next $500 on. I’ll be...

I received from a good friend of mine several pieces of 4” x 1/2” x 4’ long Apsen boards. I have about 6 boards of the stuff and 1 piece of red oak about the same size. I was wondering if Aspen would be a good wood for kitchen cabinet drawers to hold pots and pans and such? I was thinking also about making a drawer organizer for the silverware. Any suggestions?

Conference Table for Local Church #10: Breadboards on, Skirt on. Ready to Inlay.

09-22-2008 04:40 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 2 comments »

Sorry to be so long in adding to the blog on this project. Down South has been hit by tropical storm after tropical storm. Now up here in Northeastern Mississippi, we have had only rain but the coast, New Orleans, and Houston have been pounded. Our prayers are with you all!!! When I left you last, I was preparing (down South we say, “fixin”) to work on the breadboards on the big table. Well, I have attached them, and attached the breadboards to the smaller tables also. I have m...

Load of birch lumber

04-30-2009 09:23 AM by mart | 2 comments »

I got a good load of logs back from the mill today. I posted a blog about using a parbuckle to load logs; and this is the end product of those efforts. I had quite a bit of it cut at 8/4×4, some at 8/4×6, some at 12/4×12/4 for table legs, and the rest in 4/4. The 8/4×4 will end up as a bench top for my work bench, the rest will be for various upcoming projects. I am toying with the idea of building a small kiln based on the plans...

A journey into the workshop. #66: More cleaning, oh yeah, I remember that stool!

09-01-2010 04:49 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

So with what little time I could eke out for myself again last night, I managed to get out to the shop and do a little tiny bit more cleaning, I finished moving a stack of lumber from next to the workbench only to find that it was hiding a GIANT mound of plane shavings, and a Woodcraft padded stool. I kind of forgot I had 2 of those… Well, lazy me decided to plug in the DC and just suck the plane shavings up, and away into the Thien Separator they went… I also found the blank o...

Planing #1: Planing Quarter Sawn Oak with Heavy Ray Flecks

12-22-2010 11:02 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

When planing S2S lumber, I usually look for the grain slope to avoid tearout. On flat sawn oak this is pretty easy to see. Lately I have been planing some quarter sawn red oak that has heavy flecks like QSWO. You really cannot see the grain direction on this stock. But you can feel it. I found that the lumber is like fish scales – smooth when you feel it in one direction, and rough the other direction. If I take the time to orient the board so it would feel smooth to my hand as it...
