Thought that since I read all of the wood gloats in here and wish it would happen to me. Well I got a nice suprize yesterday. A fellow woodworked who is not a Lumberjock’s guy (yet) contacted me to buy some laminated wood that we have from our making rifle stocks. After he purshased his wood, he went to his truck and brought out a nice bundle of 1 inch square, 5 foot long Rosewood. All dry and old. He at one time bought out a large amound of this wood and after I shared with him ab...

Hello all: My last entry indicated I needed a way to lock the casters in place on my TS workstation cart for rolling around. I picked up a couple of storm ties for framing at the local lumber store and put a bit bend in them to fit the cart. I made one leg shorter. I attached the storm tie to the frame, then drilled through it and the caster support at the same time, put in a shallow counter bore, and put a T nut into that. Thread a bolt into the T nut, and it should be good ...

I liked the way he graded it for sale: clear/no knots $1.00 a board foot, any knots .50 a foot. Needless to say I loaded up..with 4 truckloads. Should last me for awhile. A stack of cherry. Oak, Cherry,...

Recently I found that the gardening section of my favorite hardwear store has very exotic looking hardwood stakes in a range of sizes, from pen blank size to around 4inch square in lengths of 1 to 5 foot depending on it’s thickness. Some of these stakes look to be a She-oak (Casuarina) of some type, there are others that are highly figured & attractive that i can’t begin to identify. I have used a couple of these for tool handles and i’m very happy with the results, they...

I purchase most of my nicer timber in rough slab form from Mal Ward from Boutique Timbers. They’ve recently asked me to help them set up a website for their business. They didn’t want much, just an online business card with contact details. Recently, I’ve grown to like blogger and thought I could use it to meet their needs. http://boutiquetimbers.blogspot.com/ Any feed back on site design, navigation, layout, information, etc I’d be more than happy to receive an email.
