Quest for cedar Part 2

03-04-2011 02:59 AM by dickson | 2 comments »

Not satisfied with just having cedar inside the house. I went searching for gliders made out of cedar for my new deck. If your looking for great furniture made of cedar for a very reasonable price, just try the Middinite communties in Scottsville, Kentucky. They have a lot of things already made of cedar and oak. They were more than willing to build me gliders made of the cedar that I wanted. They were so comfortable and very reasonable in price. I plan to go back this fall and get some cedar...

Quest for cedar

03-04-2011 02:44 AM by dickson | 0 comments »

I have been on a quest to have my house inside and out engulfed in cedar. It’s not only pretty, smells good, but is about the only furniture almost gauranteed to be made in the U.S.A.. I started with one and now all three of my bedrooms have only cedar furniture. Not wanting to clash with my cedar furniture, I designed my first two pieces of furniture to add to my master bedroom. I designed a television/display cabinet and an music center for my collection of records, tapes, and cds. Th...

Wood Gloat (almost)

01-29-2011 10:04 PM by Don | 5 comments »

The power company had to cut down my Cedar tree because it had overgrown an access gate and they couldn’t get into it. Before I had a chance to ask them to leave it in 10’ logs so I could get it milled they had it cut into firewood lengths. :( So if you see me posting a ton of small Cedar jewelry boxes next year you’ll know why … Or maybe I’ll finally buy a lathe and turn some big bowls.

Rogue Fine Living #1: Natural Lines- the work of Jeffro Uitto

01-19-2011 12:34 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

If you’re a crab or a seagull on the Washington coast, there is one guy that has just become a part of the coastal scenery. His rugged figure just blends into the coastline. Blending in is helped by the fact that he’s usually lugging around a piece of drift wood that is commonplace on the inlet near Tokeland. His bent form under the weight of the wet wood perfectly mimics the shape of the gnarled piece he carries. (Read the rest of the artical at

Stickley High Chest #2: Drawers

01-18-2011 11:40 PM by Greg | 2 comments »

All the drawers have been cut, dovetailed, and glued. I struggled a bit with the dovetails. I used a dovetailing jig and started with an older router that I have. I finished a couple of drawers and then my router bit started moving from the center of the bushing to the edge. I had to scrap the drawer sides from one of the smaller drawers. Luckily, I didn’t screw-up on the walnut front. The particular router (1.5 hp Ryobi with plastic threaded height adjustment) that I started with doesn...

Greene & Greene Inspired Cedar Box #1: Day 1-2

01-17-2011 07:30 PM by wasmithee | 2 comments »

This project is for my son’s 10th birthday. He needs a place to store his money for college, a religious mission and whatever else. My wife asked if I could build him a little box with three compartments. She gave me an idea of big it needed to be etc. The first thing I decided on was the wood I would use. Last Spring a co-worked gave me a couple of aromatic Easter Red Cedar logs he was trying to get rid of after cutting down the tree on his property. Unfortunately he had cut th...

Cedar Tree journey #2: From Log to Lumber

01-17-2011 03:38 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

Well I got the call today, telling me my Cedar wood was ready for pick up …I couldn’t get to the truck fast enough!! I was looking forward to seeing what beautiful wood was hidden within the tree’s bark… Upon arrival, I noticed my trailer loaded and ready for me…Wow, I was surprised how much lumber was produced from the tree… around 300 bd ft not bad for free wood… The beautiful pinkish tint of the wood was a total eye catcher, and some of the grain patterns were amazing.. I had the...

Cedar Tree journey #1: The find

01-13-2011 09:10 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

It’s easy for me to run down the road to the lumber yard or big box store to pick up some wood for a project or build. However, I am very interested in the process from log to lumber and i would like to someday be able to mill my own lumber. With some financial restraints, buying a portable mill or chainsaw milling attachment is not an option at this time, but luckily I found a local woodshop that will mill your log for you. I got a call about a Cedar Tree that a gentleman took dow...

what i've been doing #7: im a idiot when it comes to design

01-10-2011 02:20 AM by Dave | 2 comments »

My lid for my bench has a large knot hole with a check in it. So I had put some filler in it and have been waiting for over a week for it to dry.Its still damp.So I went to work on the joinery on the rails. I had a fellow lj make a suggestion that the layout of the tails did not give the appearance of hand cut. So I cut them off and chose a tighter layout.The new layout was almost to tight for my 1/8 chisel to get through. I still haven’t got used to the way my new saw tracks.Now I have...
