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

732 days ago 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...

647 days ago by Monte Pittman | 12 comments »

For those of you that feel like grabbing a chainsaw and go cut some trees to make things out of, this blog is for you. Today started yesterday afternoon. Hook up the trailer, sharpen both saes, make sure you have gas and oil, spare chains and filters. Tinker in the shop for a couple hours and go to bed early. The alarm goes off at 12:45 am. Everything is loaded so it is just a matter of hopping in and going. I am heading 322 miles away. To here ; It looks like a autumn forest ...

Cedar Window Box (Update)

812 days ago 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 ...

908 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

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...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #1: Starting the chest

1671 days ago by HungryTermite | 11 comments »

I’ve been telling my girlfriend I would make her a blanket chest for quite a while. Now that I have a tablesaw I figured there was no time like the present to get the project started. I have owned a copy of “The New Yankee Workshop” book for a really long time so I thought I would make the blanket chest from that book. It’s simple, has joinery that isn’t too complicated, and presents what I think is a good first project to learn how to set up and use my saw. ...

Make a First Aid Cabinet For the Workshop

483 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 5 comments »

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com – Websitehttp://www.ufoww.com – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...
