Big Pine Board Suggestions---First steps--Roughing it out

08-02-2009 03:59 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Hello again all, After thinking about and looking at the suggestions provided, I decided to take a piece of one suggestion and run with it. I am going to take this 8’ board and turn it into a couch table—kinda. Ulimately this will end up being four separate tables linked together by puzzle piece cutouts. If you want one table about 24 inches square, you only use one part of the table. If you need a longer table (maybe for serving at a party) you can piece together up to all fou...

New Crib #4

08-02-2009 03:51 AM by MOJOE | 4 comments »

Well, I spent Thursday afternoon looking through 2 Home Depot’s worth of birch plywood. I finally found 3 pieces that suited my needs. I actually found a 1/4 sheet that had some very procounced dark brown streaks (maybe spalting…not sure) anyway, I used it for the center of my headboard panel. I also routed a rabbit/groove in the back side to accept the panels, and put in ogee around the perimeter of each panel in the front. Today I cut the panels to fit and glued them up. I ...

Just 15 More Minutes

08-02-2009 02:12 AM by Kjuly | 8 comments »

I posted this blog on my web site and thought I would share it with my fellow Lumber Jocks.Keith A good friend called last night and suggested I write a blog about an article that I wrote in 1993 for the Mid-Michigan Woodworkers Guild. When I was young I was taught how to tell time. I thought that this task was quite simple, but I find even today I have trouble telling time. Actually it’s not telling time that’s the problem, but it’s telling the time that it take...

Need plan for table saw dust collection.

08-02-2009 12:51 AM by John Gray | 4 comments »

I purchased the hood shown in the link below. And I want to install it on my Ridgid TA3650 saw. Now comes the good part!!! I had a plan to build a unit that incorporates the hood. The unit is 3/4” plywood (2’x4 1/2’ approx.) that bolts between the saw and the stand, you screw the dust hood to the plywood. The plan shows a drawer and shelf using the plywood “overhang” to the left of the saw and a shelf on t...

150 [Cutting] Boards by the end of September. #1: Day 1

08-01-2009 10:58 PM by degoose | 25 comments »

Gidday from the land down under [where men thunder]. I have been reading lately about the 30 in 30 and have decided to up the ante.As most of you know I love making boards so I plan to make at least 150 by the end of September or early October. The main reason for this challenge to myself is that I have been invited to the Melbourne Working With Wood Show in October and I don’t want to turn up with just a handfull of boards. Most of you know that I also have a regular job so this ...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #14: Things so far and sketching out mantel and my new macaw

08-01-2009 09:40 PM by BethMartin | 5 comments »

I need to get motivated to get going again. Still have a lot to do! Here is where I’m at so far, you can see where I’ve been going with all this. So you can see that the big units are in. I still need to put on all the molding, side panels, doors and drawer fronts. And a few more adjustable shelves still need to be cut too. A LOT of small things. But at least we can kind of use them to hold stuff for the time being. What we did during this remodel was put in a new gas insert...

oak log in SE MO

08-01-2009 08:16 PM by trooper | 4 comments »

I know a little about lumber but I know nothing about logging so maybe someone could help me out. I have an oak log about 34” in diameter and 9’ long. It has been laying in my yard for a couple of months now and I am not sure what to do with it. I have been tempted to have someone just cut it up for firewood but I know that it would make some nice lumber. I do not want to sell it or make any money from it I just hate to see good lumber go to waste. Any suggestions? Any one w...

Need a Ponderosa Pine Expert

08-01-2009 07:13 PM by Dane | 3 comments »

I have a small wood shop where I make custom wine racks, wine boxes, crates and displays. Being newer at this, I am having some trouble with understanding the different Ponderosa Pine woods that are available. The first bundle I purchased was a #3 grade Ponderosa Pine. Had the usual knot issues that I was use to, but cut, planed and sanded well. Now on the second bundle, my lumber supplier gave me a deal on some #2 grade Ponderosa Pine. I was excited that I got a good deal. However, t...

As some of you know, I got my sawmill running, I need to sell a little bit of the red cedar I have sawed so far. Mostly 4/4 and a little 8/4. This was sawed from logs that have been cut for a few years so it’s pretty much dry now.The problem is I have no idea what red cedar sells for. I can either sell it rough sawn or I can planed it down.If anyone knows what red cedar sells for I would appreciate it if you let me know. I plan of putting some pe...
