Hi Everyone, In the coming days, weeks, months, and hopefully, years, I will try to document my journey into starting a woodworking business. This is something I have wanted to do for many years, and recently, things may happen in my life that will give me the opportunity to do just that.
Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...
Short and sweet.Here are the boards de jour.. . . . . .Under my rules… 8 more.. running total 31 plus 2 more sundries.CheersLarry
I must admit that progress has been slow since I broke the head piece on the rip fence. The new one is ordered, along with a scale indicator. I plan on getting the fence put back together, and adjusted square once the new parts come in. For what it’s worth, the parts order was made through M and D Mower and while this is my first order through them, I have heard good reports on their business ethics. My only issue with them so far is shipping rates. I am getting spoiled to free shipping...
I know I know.. I am late posting.. well you will be disappointed …nothing here.. I spent the whole day in R and D… Research and Development. Karson mentioned some of the designs I was coming up with, while fine were not totally usable for the purpose. Cutting Boards was the challenge… so I am changing the count..23 so far…other designs will be extra for Melbourne! BUT wait there’s more… I have been doing some really hard slogging in the deve...
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...
