Need plan for table saw dust collection.

1824 days ago by John Gray | 4 comments »

I purchased the hood shown in the link below. And I want to install it on my Ridgid TA3650 saw. Now comes the good part!!! I had a plan to build a unit that incorporates the hood. The unit is 3/4” plywood (2’x4 1/2’ approx.) that bolts between the saw and the stand, you screw the dust hood to the plywood. The plan shows a drawer and shelf using the plywood “overhang” to the left of the saw and a shelf on t...

150 [Cutting] Boards by the end of September. #1: Day 1

1824 days ago by degoose | 25 comments »

Gidday from the land down under [where men thunder]. I have been reading lately about the 30 in 30 and have decided to up the ante.As most of you know I love making boards so I plan to make at least 150 by the end of September or early October. The main reason for this challenge to myself is that I have been invited to the Melbourne Working With Wood Show in October and I don’t want to turn up with just a handfull of boards. Most of you know that I also have a regular job so this ...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #14: Things so far and sketching out mantel and my new macaw

1824 days ago by BethMartin | 5 comments »

I need to get motivated to get going again. Still have a lot to do! Here is where I’m at so far, you can see where I’ve been going with all this. So you can see that the big units are in. I still need to put on all the molding, side panels, doors and drawer fronts. And a few more adjustable shelves still need to be cut too. A LOT of small things. But at least we can kind of use them to hold stuff for the time being. What we did during this remodel was put in a new gas insert...

oak log in SE MO

1824 days ago by trooper | 4 comments »

I know a little about lumber but I know nothing about logging so maybe someone could help me out. I have an oak log about 34” in diameter and 9’ long. It has been laying in my yard for a couple of months now and I am not sure what to do with it. I have been tempted to have someone just cut it up for firewood but I know that it would make some nice lumber. I do not want to sell it or make any money from it I just hate to see good lumber go to waste. Any suggestions? Any one w...

Need a Ponderosa Pine Expert

1824 days ago by Dane | 3 comments »

I have a small wood shop where I make custom wine racks, wine boxes, crates and displays. Being newer at this, I am having some trouble with understanding the different Ponderosa Pine woods that are available. The first bundle I purchased was a #3 grade Ponderosa Pine. Had the usual knot issues that I was use to, but cut, planed and sanded well. Now on the second bundle, my lumber supplier gave me a deal on some #2 grade Ponderosa Pine. I was excited that I got a good deal. However, t...

This week in urban logging #13: Still milling, just not blogging much...

1824 days ago by Daren Nelson | 11 comments »

But I thought I would take the time to show a couple pictures. I got a call from a buddy of mine who takes care of a local cemetery asking if I wanted an ugly log they had been pushing around in the mud for a month doing an expansion. I asked what is it. He said “It’s just an old elm, but it has alot of forks like you like (crotches) and bumps all over it that look like big strawberries with twigs growing out of them (burls)” So maybe my buddies don’t know the terminol...

12 Small Deck Design Ideas

1825 days ago by EricWrights | 2 comments »

A small deck does not necessarily have to remain a small deck. There are a number of techniques to make that less than large area increase in size and become more comfortable. The key to small deck design is simplicity. 1. Create the illusion of one big area from 2 smaller spaces. If your deck is bordered by the backyard lawn then allow this outdoor living area to spill out into that open space and it will create the illusion of being larger. 2. Create colorful flower or garden beds on ...

How to Cantilever Deck Beams and Joists

1825 days ago by EricWrights | 1 comment »

Deck building is a polular do-it-yourself project with homeowners who can take advantage of how-to-do-it clinics and tools rentals at home improvement retail outlets to construct the decks of their dreams. Cantilevering is a deck construction technique that can be used by do-it-yourselfers on almost all decks. It allows the builder to add several feet to the width of the deck without increasing the maximum span rating for the beams or the joists. This is especially true when homeowners are...
