Going to do all my own milling with a stihl ms 660 magnum ...
I’m in the market for a new table saw so like every other well informed consumer I’m reading everything that I can get my fat little fingers on. One great source of product information is product reviews from magazines and online sources. I particularly like the side-by-side reviews but I’m a little skeptical of the results. When the newest edition of my favorite woodworking magazine shows up with a product review in it, it’s the first place I go. I love them and ...

Barn Cat in Training and More…. I might as well introduce a new member in my barn and tell you some of her history. To start out with it might also help if I was to explain that the barn you are seeing here is an English Barn dated from around 1780. My wife and I started gutting this barn back in 2000 and then while I was on the road most of that winter, she along with a crew took the barn down in about a weeks time after numbering all the bents. Next after taking a year to get o...
Before you lathe your flute, you will want to measure from the SAC towards the mouth 1”1/4 (31.75 mm)(3.175 cm) you will also want to apply the same measurement to the TSH and measure towards the foot of the flute. you’ll need to mark that with a dark line so that when you lathe your flute you do not pass that line, and when you are done lathing your flute it should look like the diagram above. I usually plane my flutes on the lathe, I use several size planers to plane the sides ...
I bought an Old oldold dresser/chest for $300.We sanded and discovered after research and tons of comparisons that I have an old chest or drawers made of “wormy” chestnut! Which I believe to be unique from what i have researched. The dresser is not made with screws, nails and or any modern methods of “nailing”. It is old fashioned tongue and grove, wooden “nails” or pegs and very old skeleten key locks for each drawer. It also has a “hidden”...
Hello to everyone!I purchased a Dewalt dw618 router (2 1/4hp, both fixed and plunge bases) about three months ago….I have tried repeatedly to use them but to no great accomplishment.I simply cannot get the end result that I am looking for. I have used the new incra positioning jig and am unable to get a dovetail that is actually a dovetail!I have tried to do a miter joint and all that I end up with are splinters and tearouts.For the most part I am attempting this using red oak.The bits...
So, I get this new enclosed stand for my Delta Drum Sander and one side of it is open. Why? Storage? But there’s no shelf. No bottom. So you’d be storing stuff on the floor. And if it’s on a normal mobile base that is also open you’d be dragging the stuff around on the floor when you moved it. Dumb. The kicker is, I’ve seen promo pictures where they show sandpaper being stored in there sitting on the non existent shelf. So just to double check I go to a store ...
Last night I worked on getting the tiles cut up and prepped for painting the numbers. I decided to go with 12 tiles as opposed to 10. I wouldn’t have enough room to put the numbers on 10-12 if I made all the tiles the same size as they would bee to small to get two numbers on. I remedied this by making two different sizes. I made nine tiles sized (7/8 inch) for numbers 1-9 and three (1 9/16 inches) for numbers 10-12. After I finished all the measurements, I used my miter saw to make ...
After reading all the great post on LumberJocks and watching the Wood Whisperer’s video about making a cutting board, I decided to try my hand at it. I went to a local lumber yard and picked up some of their discounted stock. I got three 1×6 (approx 9 feet long) board each of Maple, Walnut and Cherry. After seeing a few of the cutting boards posted on here I had an idea of what I wanted so started cutting and gluing. Since I don’t have a table saw, I used a radial arm saw to ...
