Wood Gloat, Claro Walnut, Central California

01-13-2010 06:05 AM by rustfever | 10 comments »

I was recently gifted 4 Claro Walnut logs. When i went to pick them up, I found there were 7, not four. They were from 24” D to 40”D. All were from 5’-6” to 7’6” L. Yesterday I took them to the sawyer. 3 hours later I have some of the most beautiful slabs. About 40% were cut into 4/4 flitches. Another 40% were cut into 5/4 flitches. The remainder were specifically cut for turning. 15 pieces for turning, 8/4, 10/4, 12/4, 16/4, 20/4 one at 24/4. I...

Building the New Wood Shop #4: finishing the roof,shingles,doors and windows

01-13-2010 04:51 AM by Popeye Jr. | 8 comments »

Well its been about four months since my last blog entry on framing the walls. The shop is now pretty much complete. All that is left now to do is decide where to build the benches and now to organize it. I’ll leave that for the next blog entry. It was quite a journey. I never would have imagined how much work it actually was being a first time builder. I read a ton of “how to books” and asked alot of questions to the Pros and had every little detail planned out . Well shall...

Extremely Average #11: Dovetail Delusions

01-13-2010 04:27 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” -Albert Einstein Because of yesterdays joyous trip to the post office, I had high expectations that today I would find a plethora of woodworking DVDs and a smattering of books, waiting for me. My anticipation remains. Driving across the endless miles, actually yards, which make up Martelle, I thought of Albert Einstein and his bike quote. I haven’t been on a bike in some time, but I was sure that all I n...

Anxiously waiting for UPS tomorrow... Or maybe Thurs.....

01-13-2010 02:56 AM by mckenziedrums | 4 comments »

I had to chuckle a little when I read all the other blog posts from other newbies like myself that were overwhelmed with the warm welcome here. =) Out of the MANY forums I frequent this one really has stood out for welcoming aboard fresh meat… err…. new folks. Yea that’s it. In any case… My tracking number from Accu-head seems to have worked today. This is a considerable change from yesterday where I couldn’t figure out where the heck I should track the packag...

Thank You for Gracious Welcome

I want to thank everyone for the ” happy to have you aboard” and warm, sincere welcome I have received since the minute I joined your club. I am new at this complex but organized site and it is taking me time to know how and where to say how much I appreciate your comments. I hope I am adding this in the right place; if not let me know. I don’t spend much time online writing but rest assured that I am reading volumes and learning much. I must post more Before I can resp...

Look ma, I have Shop Envy, RAWR!

01-12-2010 11:57 PM by Jeison | 31 comments »

I just picked up Wood Magazine’s Americas Best Home Workshops, and for the first time in a long time I’m seriously envious of other people. Of course its easy when you compare the 100 square feet of dedicated shop space in my unheated garage with a single 15-amp outlet (+500 sq ft of temperary space when I pull the cars out) to this 1,670 square foot monstrosity of awesomeness. 36×40 work area with a 16×16 office, 10 skylights, 17’ tall main window overlooking a ...
