RESAWING #1: SAVING MYSELF FIFTY BUCKS PLUS

11-05-2009 04:39 PM by threehands | 4 comments »

I’VE BEEN RESAWING FOR SOME TIME NOW WITHIN THE LIMITS OF MY SAW. I HAVE A JET 14” BANDSAW. I WAS ORIGINALLY LIMITED TO ITS STANDARD HEIGHT MEANING I COULD ONLY RESAW A BOARD WHICH WAS AT MAX SIX INCHES HIGH. THIS WAS VERY TIME CONSUMING WHEN TRYING TO GET A BOARD SAY 15” WIDE BUT 1/2” THICK. MOST OF THE STOCK I USE IS AT LEAST 1” THICK. I WAS TIRED OF WASTING THE OTHER 1/2” OF WOOD BY PLANING IT OFF TO GET THE THICKNESS I WANTED. I COULD RESAW IT THINN...

Workshop #10: Bandsaw works great!!

11-01-2009 03:11 AM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

So in my last blog I noted that I have added a bandsaw to my arsenal of tools. It was a great deal and needed a new blade and some quick cleaning up. Well I went and got a blade yesterday and cleaned up the saw and installed the new blade today. Then I just played around a bit. Here are the two projects I did in order to play around some and get familiar with the tool. I decided I would just post them here and not as an actual project, maybe I’ll have something by the end of the weekend...

How to find great figure wood other than Burl

10-24-2009 05:33 PM by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

Hey everyone, I was asked by a few of you from my blog “How to find legal burls” “once I get them how do I cut the burls”? Well I just made a short vidio on how I cut to the burl in the context of a bowl or hollow form blank. Please coment and add if I don’t cover it well. If you not want to go thru the hassle of finding and cutting your own you can alway buy from me. LOLThanksGreg Thanks Todd on the tip for getting the video on this post.

Got an excuse to buy a Riser Block..

10-17-2009 05:10 PM by Rick Boyett | 8 comments »

A couple of months ago, I bought this bandsaw off Craigslist. It’s a great little Grizzly BS. A couple of weeks ago I bought about 50 bd ft of Black Walnut from a fella at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX for only $2.00 a bd ft. (killer deal). I think I forgot how big the opening is for my BS. Looks like I’ll be buying a riser block and new BS blades now. I’m going to use this lumber to build a baby crib..

Look at that! #2: I was supposed to pick up my Delta bandsaw today but that's not gonna happen

10-17-2009 03:12 PM by Bothus | 5 comments »

So yesterday I called the guy I bought the bandsaw from to confirm the time for me to pick it up today. It’s about a 3 hour round trip for me. He answered the phone and I asked the question and I hear a long pause like he forgot I was coming… Turns out he is going to deliver it at 8AM this morning because he’s coming out here to pick up some other tool. Cool. Hey maybe I can take the bandsaw to work so I work on it after hours? Nah, I’d feel like I was cheatin...
