The Chicken Coop

228 days ago by mervillehomesteader | 11 comments »

About a year ago I moved onto 5 acres full of nice size fir and cedar trees a lot of trees. We cut down about a half acre for garden and chicken space. From the trees we cut down we got 5000 board feet of one inch and two inch fir timbers (mostly 10inch wide by 10 to 20ft long) and a tonne of one inch cedar planking (averaging about 14inches wide). That’s a lot of wood for one lowly carpenter but I think I will manage. Well first things first. Dig a garden and get the chickens out of...

Works in Progress #1: Humidor - and so it begins...

247 days ago by Jerry | 6 comments »

I was going to build a humidor for my brother in law, Raul, for Christmas, but at the last minute, I decided to hold off and consult with him to find out his specific desires. Good thing I did, now I’m armed with knowledge, a lot of great new tools to help me facilitate the task, two of which he bought me for Christmas. First this lovely Veritas dovetail guide and this great addition to my router plane, an inlay cutter head Just got back from Woodcrafters with some lovely ...

A How Too Turn The Cedar Birdhouse

257 days ago by hoss12992 | 18 comments »

I have had alot of folks how do I make the cedar birdhouses. These are really easy and hopefully these pics will help. As they say, a pic is worth 1000 words, and Im not much on typing. LOL If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. Start with a shorter piece of log, whatever type you want to use will work. I do ALOT of cedar, as I have LOTS of it on my farm, it last a really long time, and its easy to turn. Did I mention, its free, which happens to be my favorite price. ...

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

280 days ago by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

Lumber in the woods

311 days ago by pbyrne | 13 comments »

I am currently working on an extensive construction project.The customer asked me to clear some acreage blocking his view of the mountains. I gave him a break on the equipment price in exchange for any timber I remove.What I discovered were broadleaf maples straight and clear for 30 feet averaging 32 inches diameter, well over 12,000 bf in the butt logs. In addition, I uncovered a deadfall old growth Western Red Cedar log. What is left of the log are 18” x36” x 20’+ slab...

341 days ago by MrJesse34 | 4 comments »

I have an old Mahogany (I think) blanket chest. Looks like it was hand carved. Really nice piece of furniture. It has a little wear and tear, and thats where I need your help. There are a few large scratches I would like to clean up / fix. Is there an easy way to fix this, to get the color close to matching? What kind of general advice do you have for cleaning up a nice old piece such as this? I will be buying new hinges for it too. The hardware on it is goldish – what i m...
