Tasmanian Woodworking... #11: A sawmill on a mountain..

12-12-2010 02:17 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

Down south in Tasmania, at a little place called Myrtle Creek, you will meet the Carins Brothers… Rory, Roderick and George… The family have been timber loggers for 5 generations and have recently moved into milling the timber they log on the 600 acre family property… And what a great location to go to work… the views down the valley are breathtaking… I took some video footage while I was there last month and have just now got around to editing it into s...

Back to the drawing board

12-12-2010 01:26 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve had time to blog. I’ve been super busy trying to take care of things around the house and trying to make CHRISTmas gifts for the family. I’ve been working on a set of coasters for my parents and have come to the conclusion that a new design is in order. I was not abiding by the “keep it simple” principle and it came back to bite me. I haven’t taken any pics of my project thus far but I plan to once things are fin...

My First Bandsaw Box #4: Step 3: Cut Out the Outer Shape of Your Bandsaw Box

12-12-2010 12:04 AM by Jonathan | 2 comments »

Now that you’ve decided upon the shape of your bandsaw box and transferred it to the wood via your preferred method, it’s time to get to cutting it out. Just from working on this project a little bit, I’d recommend a 1/4” blade, or smaller. I started with a 1/4”, 4-TPI, then switched down to a 3/16”, 10-TPI. Between these 2-blades, the 1/4”-blade cuts more easily and quicker through the wood, but is not able to make as tight of a turn as the 3/16̶...

I have now added a few more bench hooking utilities to my list. Here is my shooting board that I plan to use to trim end grain. The board has about 14” of landing which should be plenty. And here is a little planning stop that has alredy come in handy for planning and for chisel work

My First Bandsaw Box #3: Step 2: Design and Layout of Your Bandsaw Box

12-11-2010 10:54 PM by Jonathan | 1 comment »

After you either have your hunk of wood chosen, or you’ve glue-up a hunk of wood, it’s time to design your bandsaw box. There are numerous ways of doing this… you can simply freehand the entire thing in a freeform sort of way, or you can draw your design on a piece of paper and then use spray adhesive to attach the cutout design onto the block of wood, or you can draw the lines for the box directly onto the wood, or you can do what I did and use tracing paper. Since I kne...

My First Bandsaw Box #2: Step 1: Hunka' Hunka' Beetle Kill Pine

12-11-2010 10:23 PM by Jonathan | 2 comments »

As mentioned in the Overview blog post #1, you can’t make a bandsaw box without a hunk of wood to saw out, right? You either need a big hunk of wood to start with, or you need to make your own big hunk of wood. When choosing a hunk of wood, or glueing up a hunk of wood, you need to keep the size of your bandsaw in mind as well. If you have a standard 14” bandsaw, for instance, you need to limit all of your dimensions to 6” or less, since that’s typically the capa...

Notes from the workday. #8: Hickory travertine entryway

12-11-2010 09:48 PM by vicrider | 7 comments »

Well, I’ve been absent from LJ’s for quite a while helping friends and relative’s around the state do remodel work on their homes. I thought I would share a couple things we worked on. First up is an entryway of 1X4 hickory flooring inlaid with 18” travertine tile. The space is 6’x10’ and the Mrs. wanted the pattern to be set on the bias. Neither my pal Ken nor I had ever done a mixed media floor like this so it took us nearly a day to just plan how w...
