Drying Burl Wood #1: Drying Domestic Burl Wood: Consideration #1

08-27-2012 04:29 PM by OregonBurls | 5 comments »

Hey to all you LJs, Consideration #1 I thought that I would start a series on drying green domestic burl wood. With burl wood the end grain is going every direction and is under more internal pressure thus making it want to self destruct. Green burls or straight grain have two places where water finds its home. Inside the cells and outside the cells, this is called bound water (inside the cells) and free water (outside the cell walls). Free water is easier to escape than the bound wa...

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...

Building a Tablesaw Base Part 1

04-11-2013 12:15 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 13 comments »

Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. This new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I haven’t yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to...

Tool Cabinet #2: Respect to all cabinet builders...

01-07-2008 12:48 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 19 comments »

For all of you cabinet builders on this site, my hat is off to you! I never fully realized the work that is involved in making a cabinet and how even the smallest mistakes can compound so very quickly… Right before Christmas I posted this blog asking for input on plans for a tool cabinet. Well, I took all the advice I received and have been furiously building over the holidays. Here is where I stand—I have completed the actual “cabinet” portion of the project. ...

Cedar Window Box (Update)

06-08-2012 04:17 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Hello everyone, a short time ago I posted a project titled Cedar Window Box. In that project post I mentioned that I would check with the client for their approval on posting the dimensioned SketchUp graphics I created. Well, they approved. I put together a brief, and I mean brief, video that includes the dimensions for all of the major components of the window box. I had to do it this way because the graphics were too large to post on the project page. The clarity is not as good as I had ...

Hey friends, I wanted to share a project/blog….that never got on here, as it was done probably in the late 1960’s from what I have learned. I remember as a child going and snooping as all young kids do..and going into my Grandparents bedroom and being in awe…of this wooden closet…lol. My father told me that this became a side project of my Grandfathers and he did it as a pastime hobby.I am amazed that the work is so clean all done in Cedar…and so new lookin...
