Wood Gloat

04-13-2010 11:00 PM by Hacksaw007 | 11 comments »

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...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #6: A bit more work done

04-13-2010 10:04 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

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 ...

Wood Gloat

04-13-2010 07:29 PM by DocK16 | 17 comments »

I recently picked up some lumber from a local farmer listed in a local paper. He has had this drying for serveral years in his barn, varoius assortment of cherry, oak and maple. He was getting ready to clear another several acres so he was anxious to get rid of it to make more room. 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,...

Wood going to waste!

04-13-2010 03:31 PM by whiskeyturner | 8 comments »

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...

~ the love of wood ~ #3: Boutique Timbers - New Website

04-13-2010 01:43 PM by DoctorDan | 5 comments »

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. Any feed back on site design, navigation, layout, information, etc I’d be more than happy to receive an email.
