Reclaimed Cedar #1: The Journey Begins

943 days ago by Chris Love | 3 comments »

Hello all! In addition to wood working, I am very involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Both of my sons are Boy Scouts and I am currently an Assistant Scout Master. One of our Eagle Scout Candidates recently completed his Eagle project that involved removing an “old” Cedar Rail Fence. Rather than see all of this beautifully aged cedar turn into firewood; I offered to take it and repurpose it into projects. I love to make outdoor furniture and will post entries here as ...

Work in Progress #1: Patio Side Table in Cedar

1286 days ago by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

I started this project a while ago, but because of work haven’t had much time to work on it. By the time I’m done, it should be just in time to put it up for the winter! Oh well. This is my first project entirely done with hand tools. This is the top, 20” square and 1 3/8” thick. The legs are 4×4’s but planed down to a little less than 3.5” I’m not sure if these M&T joints have an official name, but they’re more li...

Finish For Vegtable Planter

361 days ago by Litrenta | 0 comments »

I built a cedar deck a couple seasons ago and I’ve had a stack of the off-cuts sitting in my shop waiting for it to be used. In my part of Canada it’s still a littler cold at this time of year but I’d like to get some of my vegetables started so I decided to build a “hot house”. Essentially it’s just a planter that sits directly in my garden with a piece of glass on top to form a mini-greenhouse. Once the weather is nice enough, I just remove the box and in...

Camperizing the truck from the wood shop. #4: Considerations for construction materials and weight issues.

221 days ago by dbhost | 4 comments »

Now those that have seen pics of my truck now I drive a half ton pickup. Okay so the payload rating is actually well over that, actually well over 3/4 of a ton, but they are doing funny things with truck ratings and classifications these days. Still weight is a consideration when building any sort of truck bed camper. Working with my Sketchup drawings, and looking at the assemblies it occours to me that it needs to be lightweight for 2 reasons really. #1. Hauling capacity of the truck i...

All American

1040 days ago by Transition | 5 comments »

I have decide to turn only reclaimed, American woods. I’m doing this for several reasons:1) There are trees that we pass, and largely ignore, everyday. Turning this wood gives me a chance to reintroduce myself and others to to this amazing world. I love the outdoors, and I go hiking, exploring, and “wood hunting” with my son quite often. I want to be able to point to a tree and tell him what it is. But as I’ve started trying to identify the species of wood that I&...

Tree growth "vortex"

1037 days ago by tswoodwizard | 3 comments »

OK, maybe all of my wood-tec type friends out on LJ,s can help me figure this out. I’ve allways been fascinated with the dynamics of curing and drying wood after the harvesting process. One to overcome is of cource the growth vortex that occures in some species and not in others. One question I have is this, Is there a right-hand vortex that occures above the equator as opposed to a left hand one bellow the equator? When a tree wiggles and struggles up out of the grownd, It also “...

these are two spoons i made for a friend of mine in Arizona, one is a ladle and the other is a spoon, the ladle is made from red cedar and the spoon is made from sassafras , i used my scroll saw to cut part of the shape, then i used my dremel, my foredom and hand chisels to create the hollowed out portions, these were the first kitchen items i have made and they were fun, although taxing for someone who has carpel tunnel or arthritis…but they were enjoyable to make and certainly enjoya...

Workbench Build #42: Attaching the Base #1..

236 days ago by Airframer | 9 comments »

I got started attaching the base to the top last night. Only got about halfway through it because it was late and I didn’t want to rush through it and mess something up. But so far so good. This is mostly a short picture post but you should have an idea of what is going on here.. Once more flip and rotate the top.. Then measure out the side stretcher by the leg vise for clearance of the chain bracket.. Then got everything drilled and ready for drawboring...

Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table #4: Sanding on the juniper base

2078 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

As you can see, all the crevices have been sandblasted, the gray wood has been taken down to the rich wood grain and the gold is turning to blonde. This has been sanded with an electric sander and now I have about half a day of handsanding to make sure there are not any scratches, then it will be time ot build the legs. There is something very alluring about the movement of this wood, it can be so wild looking, yet so calm that it just pulls you in.
