Spline jig #2: The box from the jig

966 days ago by Sanman | 1 comment »

I ended up with a very large spline after playing with the jig. No worries, this is my pallet wood pile to practice with. As far as I can tell, this is a pine box with cedar splines, top, and bottom. My first attempt at routing an edge, lot’s of burs on the end grains. What causes that? The box came out nice. I made 45 cuts and glued together with out clamps. I used tape and checked my square before leaving it to dry. It seems to sit flat on the ts. I worked...

I just swung the ends of the tapes in their respective arcs until both ends met and voila a leg o mutton sail. Dead easy and fast. Shorty recommends duct taping along these lines and then cut along the tape. My first thought was to la...

Lumber in the woods

302 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...

Workbench Build #38: Final Assembly of the Top...

376 days ago by Airframer | 9 comments »

I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to put the top together. This did not go without it’s fair share of oh sh#t moments one of which almost had me starting the whole thing over almost.. But I’m getting ahead of myself.. I had planned to use pegs instead of bolts. I am trying to keep the number of mechanical fasteners to a minimum on this so lets have a go at it.. Marked out the location of the peg holes and drilled just the end caps.. Then fitted them and marked th...

Wood SCORE!!!

1018 days ago by YBNORMAL | 13 comments »

This story starts off sad, but ends happily for me at least. A local sawyer passed away last month and the family is having trouble getting rid of all the “STUFF” he has acuminated in his long lifetime. One of the items that they were particularly interested in liquidating was his inventory of wood. LOTS OF WOOD. This gentleman had several large warehouses full of lumber of different kinds. Thousands upon Thousands of board foot of Cyprus, cherry, heart pine, SYP, white oak, r...
