From tree to lasting memory #3: moving ahead

1113 days ago by gpastor | 1 comment »

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

The Restaurant Project #1: Just started the 6000 sq ft restaurant

912 days ago by trimworxinc | 1 comment »

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.

Mahogany and it's array of colors....

651 days ago by WoodGoddess | 1 comment »

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 ̶...

"The Woodwright's Shop" Episode Review #7: Roy's gets a visit from a basket case...

313 days ago by StumpyNubs | 1 comment »

The next installment in my episode by episode, wise cracking review of the greatest television show ever… “We have a lot to do today! We have got to put a bottom on our rocking chair… and tie these rockers on pretty good otherwise you’re going to go to orbit on your first try.” Roy’s working with white oak today, and that means another log. “If you’ve heard anything about getting white oak…” (Of course, Roy! Me and the boys chat about logs over beers every Friday.) “The one thing ...

Wooden Planes #8: Checker board block plane

108 days ago by Mark Kornell | 1 comment »

This is a bevel-down low angle block, bedded at 37° This one was also an exercise in lamination. Cherry and walnut, with a white oak sole. Finish is Waterlox and wax. It darkened the cherry considerably (and the cherry has continued to darken all on its own), so the contrast isn’t what I was originally going for. Again, the glueup was done with UF glue. While the number of pieces would have been manageable with PVA, I didn’t feel like rushing. It took 3 separate glueups t...

Restoration Canceled

2492 days ago by Paul | 1 comment »

Well, I finally got around to calling about the cooler box after it was dropped in my driveway. With some sense of relief, I learned that she just wanted the box “tightened up” so that it wouldn’t fall apart as it sits on her porch as a rustic planter. (Of course, soft weathered wood doesn’t just “tighten up” easily.) She also wanted some clear preservative applied and some hidden feet added to raise the box off the corners and possible standing water ...

Good price on a planer

2306 days ago by Shopsmithtom | 1 comment »

I just thought I’d pass along a good experience I had ordering a planer.I’ve been watching ebay (a disease I have along with my inherent cheapness), looking a planers to see if there were any deals to be had, and other than some off brands, nothing was showing up. I was checking prices around the web, and of the, more or less, known brands, the Delta TP305 seemed to be a good starter variety planer at a good price. Locally it’s about $239.00, and that is the approximate...

Another Cheap Table, for a TV this time.

528 days ago by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laid out a few junkie boards. Well one was junkie, anyway. Pretty, ain’t? Needed to scrub away the junk on the outside, so I could at least see where I was cutting.. Little scrub plane was taking too long, so I got out a slightly bigger one Clamps might get in the way on a cut, so a couple 2” long screws to hold it in place, for my saw to do a rip cut I ripped a blank off the plank, turned the plank around to the other “good” side, and ripped again. ...

nightstand bedside table #2: gaps in the plans

2114 days ago by coloradoclimber | 1 comment »

Still working on redrawing the plans and I came across an anomaly. The back and sides are solid wood panels. The side panels fit tight edge to edge. The back panels have a 3/16 gap between the panels and the posts. I could believe the gap is for wood movement, sounds reasonable, but then why not in the sides. Both the back and the sides are similar grain orientation and both will be subject to movement. I suspect the real answer is that whoever drew up the original plans either wanted t...
