edging rough sawn log slices into ipe boards

576 days ago by Harry Montana | 4 comments »

when the slices come of from the log, the bark is being cut of in the process of edging. The bark is not in a straight line however on the lsice so for optimized output (as many boards from a log) this process is very important and should only be done by expereinced employees. They more or less calculate what kind of boards may come out (1×6” wide and 1×4” wide or 1×6” wide and 1×3” wide) and production is either good or with a poor yield. This edgi...

Oil bath...

583 days ago by degoose | 18 comments »

When applying oil to small boards…. I use an Oil Bath..Put a few inches of grapeseed oil in the bottom and then a rack over for letting the excess drip off. You can continue to “baste” the boards until they are saturated…Leave dry for a few hours and then buff…

Cornhole Board Tutorial #5: Finishing the boards

584 days ago by StephenSchaad | 6 comments »

This post will show you the way I finish the boards. I will not be painting these yet but I have included a link at the bottom for customization help. I just want to show you how to build the boards and prepare them for paint or stain. The first step in finishing the boards is flush trimming the plywood to the frame. If you don’t have a flush trim bit, you can just sand it down if it’s not too far off. I also like to adjust my flush bit to smooth out the inside of the hole....

Cornhole Board Tutorial #2: Materials, Tools and First step

594 days ago by StephenSchaad | 2 comments »

In this section I’m going to cover the tools and materials needed and the first step in making the boards. Here are a few examples of boards I’ve built. If you’ve never played cornhole before, it’s essentially horseshoes. You toss bean bags on to the boards and you get three points for making it in the hole, and one point for making it on the board. You play in teams and throw against the other team. I’ll include rules in the last post. Tools: Power DrillPower DriverJig Saw or ...

Boards. #6: Can you glue end grain to long grain...

996 days ago by degoose | 18 comments »

When gluing timber it is important to take into consideration grain direction.. Long grain to long grain is fine, due to the fact that timber contracts and expands across the grain.. more than with the grain… End grain to endgrain makes for a very poor glue joint [without some mechanical faster]...and you must be aware that movement can cause a joint to fail.. this is generally true when gluing long grain to endgrain… However…. Quite a while ago, I made this piece a...

Wood #1: Tambuti Wood "Spirostachys africana"

1046 days ago by thiswoodshop | 3 comments »

Spirostachys africana is a medium-sized (about 30 ft tall) deciduous tree with a straight clear trunk found in the warmer parts of Southern Africa. Its wood is known as tamboti, tambotie, tambootie or tambuti. It prefers growing in single-species often along watercourses or on brackish flats and sandy soils. Despite its being prone to heart-rot, it is prized in the furniture industry for its beautiful, dense and durable timber, which is reddish-brown with darker streaks, a satin-like lu...

Milling 3" Black Walnut Slabs for fireplace mantels

1376 days ago by Matt Pec | 3 comments »

I’ll be milling some 6’ long Black Walnut today for a customer who’s interested in fireplace mantels. Pics to follow. I’m thrilled…it’s been awhile since I’ve cut anything 3” or thicker. Okay, several hours later and I’m done with the milling. Pics are coming up shortly. I ended up with (2) 12/4 slabs 6’ long, 8-11” wide and (1) 5/4 board that was all I could salvage from the remainder of the log. Hope you like em! F...

going green #1: veneer-thin poplar scraps glue-up

1478 days ago by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

A couple of years ago I built a standing floor cabinet foolishly out of all poplar (not true poplar, e.g. black poplar (Populus nigra) or white poplar (Populus alba), but tulip poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), the stuff you (and I) get from Home Depot). It cost about $800+ in wood, and over $1k all together. I should have used plywood! I jointed the big pile of boards and ripped their other sides to get them all identical in width. This left me with a whole pile of extremely thin edge-str...
