Need Locust Wood?

11-18-2009 05:14 PM by SplinteredBoard | 6 comments »

OK, here’s the deal. A friend of ours had a Locust Wood tree (not sure if it’s black or honey) cut down recently. I don’t want the wood to go to waste, so I’m trying to get it milled into logs. Real saw mills won’t talk to me since the logs are all 2 feet in diameter x 2 feet long. Logs that short are unstable and dangerous. I found a guy in my area who will do it, but there are several variables that might not make this a reality. 1) I have not been ...

Up extremely early…...about 0400…...why?.......had to prep some food for a small LJ get together later in the day. So, while drinking my morning cup of java(elixir of life).......chopped onions, red peppers, garlic, trimmed chicken and put on a dry rub amongst other items to prep. Left for my day job ar...

French Cleat Wall Storage System

11-18-2009 07:59 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 28 comments »

A French cleat is as ingenious as it is simple. It involves securing a strip of wood with a 45 degree bevel to the wall, and then securing an opposing beveled strip on the back of a cabinet or anything you want to hang. Its incredibly strong and versatile. Its a great way to hang cabinetry and as you’ll see in this video, it can be used to make an awesome modular wall storage unit.

11-18-2009 05:16 AM by Brad_Nailor | 21 comments »

OK..I was about to order (literally, I was about to order the saw) my Grizzly G0690 when I see an add on Craigslist for a 2001 Delta unisaw with a 52” real Beismeyer fence, table board and legs and a Delta mobile base. I have been emailing with the seller and he assures me that the saw is like brand new..he bought it new in ‘01 and used it rarely for home improvement projects and some cabinet making.

Kite Camera Reel #4: Almost Done!

11-18-2009 04:21 AM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

I was able to squeeze another day in the shop. We started out by finishing up the parallel linkage with the barrel bolts we got from the hardware store. Then we fabricated the Brooxe hanger and the camera enclosure mount. Finally, it was time for the handles. ^ Handles installed on the reel assembly ^ Camera enclosure mounted on the bottom of the parallel linkage ^ Brooxe hanger showing how kite string winds around the “mushrooms” in the top member of the parallel l...
