Prospecting for Wood #6: Something Useful from the latest Salvage

1962 days ago by Paul | 5 comments »

The results of my latest wood salvage. These are 3 sets of 12 drawers – Oak fronts with Poplar drawer sides. Each set is a different size – 24” 18” 12”. Cases will be sized accordingly, of course. Yet I used most the wood from the salvage to build the drawer cases. Here’s a pine version of something similar that I use in my shop for small items – layout tools, etc. I use different knobs on the oak and I’m more particular ab...

How do I woodburn? #1: Can someone help me learn to woodburn?

1962 days ago by laurasautographs | 3 comments »

I don’t know if this is where you would put this, but I’m new here. I have always been interested in woodburning, but I’m not sure how. Is there anyone who could give me tips or some tutorials on how to woodburn things? I have a pretty nice burner, but I’m not to good, so any help would be appreciated.

Weather Station #1: And away we go...

1962 days ago by newTim | 5 comments »

Now that I finished the Japanese Garden Bench I had the chance to begin a project I’ve been noodling about since Christmas. This is exactly how I like things to go. Always have a book to read, always have a project on the bench, always have a project set to go. BTW, the book, Atlas Shrugged. 1,100+ pages. The most relevant book I’ve read, I highly recommend it, but I digress. In the pictures you can get a sense of what I’m shooting for. A Galileo Thermometer flanked w...

Shop done. Let's build something #3: Cabinet shell

1962 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Again in my series of building a corner cabinet. Today I got the shell built and some shelves made. I used some poplar plywood for the shell (back) and some pine to frame it in behind the oak face. Then I mounted the face to it. It’s 42” tall, 24” wide on the front and each side is about 17” Now all that’s left is the doors, so it will be awhile till my next post. I’ve got to make a test one first in pine as it’s my first time. The cabinet front mo...

deals #2: Free lumber, in bits and pieces

1962 days ago by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

I followed a classified to a small pile of free pine and fir last night. I made the 12mi. round trip to find nothing, then found I’d had the alleyway next to the one it was supposed to be in. It was midnight, but I thought “What the heck?” and did the 12mi. round trip again, and there it was, all the wood stacked against the wall here: I got 2 ~5’ and 2 ~7.75’ 2×6 Douglas fir boards, with some brackets and screw holes, though not many, and I can u...

Wood IDs #1: 2 species of branches found in my green waste bin - what are they?

1962 days ago by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

I’ve had quite a weekend here in LA with the free wood gathering. It’s laughable to you folks on farms, or out in the deep woods with harvestable lumber all around you, but here, we have to beg for our scraps, or put down hard earned cash at the stores :) Thursday night after work, I came home to find the green plant-matter bin out by the road, indicating the gardeners had been by (landlady pays for them 2x/mo). Unusually, however, were limbs sticking out of it. I only have a f...

Survey - Paper Magazine Subscriptions

1962 days ago by John Gray | 26 comments »

I noted that someone here said something like, “You know you are a woodworker when your magazine subscriptions total more than a weeks pay”.I’ve been getting a lot of magazines lately that are filled with things I already know about, advertising, and several pages of large projects I may never build. So I’m making a list of magazines to do away with subscription wise. So I’m asking y’all WHAT 4 WW MAGAZINES YOU WOULD SUBSCRIBE TO IF YOU COULD GET ONLY F...
