This one come under the heading of, “It takes 2000 at-a-boys to make up for on Aww ^%#$ and one aww ^%#$ will cancel 2000 at-a-boys.

I have a Woodmizer LT-40 which I use to process lumber for customers and bowl blanks I use and sell. This is in between my day job as a finance professional I bought the mill used in 2007 after getting a job that was too big for my Norwood Lumbermate. I had a builder need beams from 80 large logs. I had the Norwood since 2005. During 2007 through 2009, I milled 1 weekend a month on average. That fell off from 2009 through 2012. I think I milled 2 or 3 times per year when the econo...

Working with recycled timber #4: Recovering / repairing or breaking down wood

07-04-2013 09:07 AM by robscastle | 2 comments »

There are lots of furniture items about which end up in a street clean up. I saw a blue painted set of drawers which appeared on vacant block near me some time ago, I didn’t take much notice of it but just watched it. It didn’t move for a couple of days so I went over and checked it out, when I opened a drawer I saw it was assembled using blind dovetails in it so I decided to bring it home. Once I got it back home and had a good look at it was worthwhile sanding the paint...

Cherry Nightstand #6: Carcass Construction

05-08-2014 10:23 PM by Todd | 2 comments »

In this installment I’ll be covering the carcass construction which includes assembling the face frame, sides and base. I’m not covering the construction of the face frame because it’s a very simple face frame assembled with pocket screws and glue. I do want to mention the specifics of how I attached the face frame to the sides. I used Sommerfeld’s 3-Pc Tongue & Groove Cabinetmaking Set to make the attachment. Below is the resulting joint. Note that th...

Checking your miter gauge for squareness

03-22-2007 09:17 PM by JonH | 2 comments »

I found a great way to check your miter extremely precisely for square. It made my head hurt adjusting it over and over, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I may never get it perfect, but it will be close enough that I can’t tell. This is from the site. He references Dave Lers’ page on the 32mm cabinet making system ( I’ don’t know anything 32mm other than it is a cool way to check for square. Yes, I stuck my precisi...
