Frustrated in Florida

12-12-2011 02:16 AM by TheShat | 6 comments »

Sorry for the rant, but I went to Lowes today to get some supplies for making some Christmas gifts. 1X8X8 ceder was $12 that meant my bird feeders would be $24 each in just lumber. Does anyone know were I can find any good deals on lumber in Ormond Beach, FL? I got one lead from a local woodworker, but the shop was out of business… maby its just me, is that a good price for ceder? Thanks for any help

Workbench Build #35: Endcap Part Deux....

07-26-2013 09:10 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

Now that the wagon vise is sorted out and functioning quite well I might add (am having too much fun with it right now tbh).. Last night after work (1am.. pretty sure my neighbors hate me right now) I decided to go ahead and make the 1” dog for the vise. Fairly straight forward. Sanded the 1” dowel slightly to give it a smooth fit (using the vise to do it no less :D ) Then cut to length, cut an angled notch at the top and then used my 1/4” chisel to cut a grove d...

Lumber Purchase today.

09-04-2008 02:13 AM by Karson | 18 comments »

Those of you who know me know that I’m always on the lookout for wood (not). I’ve got more lumber than I’ll ever use in my lifetime. But I’ve been on the lookout for some Aromatic Red Cedar. I saw a log at an acquaintance home and I told him to cut it up. He owns a Woodmizer. I went to pick up the wood today. He also cut up a few other cedar logs at the same time so he probably had 1000 bd ft cut. I picked up 6 1X10 – 6’, 6 1X6- 8’, 6 1×...

AGING OF SURFACE #2: REPLICA OF THE OLD RIGA TAVERN WINDOW. PICTURE WITH FRAME. STEPS OF THE WORK

05-27-2013 04:14 AM by Walther von Einik | 4 comments »

Also, video blog is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEzqKl-QOwA&feature=youtu.be I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...

Wood SCORE!!!

11-07-2011 09:34 PM 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...

Matt's Cradle

Hello, my name is Jerry, I’m retired and live in the country with my wife. I ‘very much’ consider myself a beginner furniture maker. This is the third cradle I’ve made – this one is for a Great Grandson. There are no metal fasteners in this cradle. This cradle is made from trees I cut from our property, eastern red cedar and elm – both considered trash trees. I have a small bandmill which I use to saw the trees into something I can us...

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Lumber in the woods

10-24-2013 04:23 AM 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...
