I have made some progress on my storage shed and really not far from finishing. The roof is on, however, I found out that putting the plywood on the roof by yourself in the wind can be a bit challenging as it wants to act like a sail, but all in all I got it done. Even putting the tar paper down and getting the drip edge on literally a minute or two before a severe late p.m thunderstom, wasn’t too bad but shingling was baad. Shingling the roof, advancing 5” a course even on ...
At 17m long, TREE is London’s Natural History Museum’s largest botanical specimen. It is a wafer-thin shaving through the entire 200 year old tree from roots to branch tips. The video shows Tania Kovats’ journey through finding the tree, deciding how to bring it down, learning how to have it resawn, CNC machined thin, and dried, and the ultimate hanging on the ceiling of the mezzanine gallery behind the Central Hall. Quite some board feet she left behind at the mill. She...

I have a guy I know who has from time to time asked me to cut up a few logs for him. In the past I have always asked him what kind of log and diameter. I have cut some red oak for him and I cut a big walnut log that was filled with nails but, produced good lumber (minus the nails). He recently asked me to cut up some mulberry I asked him how big were the logs he said approx 20” in diameter which is a nice log size. I had never cut any mulberry so I agreed, and he said he would drop off...

VIA the internet i’m learning..I went to auctions and started buying..I started with a brand name tablesaw and spent more time tuning it than i did useing it.

By clicking here, you should get to a Google Doc of about 41 pages of the Joinery section. Let me know if you have any problems accessing it.
I am really looking forward to possible overtime this fall. I am going to make a new table saw purchase as soon as possible with these funds. As I am shopping grizzly and comparing models, why would I pay $150 more for a hybrid (G0478) over the contractor (G0661) when the contractor has just as much HP, 1/8 inch more ripping capacity at 90deg, 6 inches more on the fence capacity totalling 36 inches? Would some explain to me why the hybrid is more and if it would be worth it? Also, wou...
Once again, thanks to Cardinal Wolsey’s Today in History and Phil Gyford’s excellent online version of Samuel Pepys’s diary, the worlds of woodworking and early modern England come together. Hold on to your buckled hats! The grumpy guy you see here is Samuel Pepys, (1633-1703) the famous diarist. He was known for writing about the Great Fire in London, and for writing about his sexpcapades (ewe) in code so his wife could never bust him. If you’re curious (and i donR...
Here’s another one from the archive, but here’s a better link with pictures (i try not to read anything that doesn’t have pictures!)Every once in a while, i look for tenuous links between my research on Early Modern England and traditional woodworking. Naturally, i was so stoked to see Christopher Schwarz’s work on Moxon, as well as his edition of the section on joinery. Other bloggers have written about Moxon, and Schwarz seems to have have ignited the woodworking wor...
