The pantry in our bush house needed some remodeling. The “staircase” inside was really more of a ladder. My wife uses it everyday to go to the loft and hang laundry to dry and has had some close calls when trying to come down. So we did a remodel and built a more legitimate staircase, which also meant moving all of my solar equipment. All the lumber used was from trees I cut down and slabbed. Hopefully this staircase will prove to be more safe (at least after I make a handrail.) ...
It all starts with the growing and cutting of a tree. Here’s a short video about that subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M2tMFshLm0
I’m starting a project to build a giant oak table (along with a few other things) from a red oak tree from my Grandfather’s old place Here is the specimen. It is about 70’ tall and 37” in diameter at the base It only took about 20 minutes to get it down. I used the bore cut method. It is currently in 4 10’ sections and I have milled the first section into some decent sized beams that I will later resaw on a bandsaw. I’m not without some help t...

I figured there’s at least a hand full of people that frequent this site that could be helped out by this article. Who hasn’t had a chainsaw at some point that was giving them a fit? If you have an older chainsaw, you’ve probably heard it say this before: “Help, Help! cough, umpfh, vrooooommmmm! cough, sputter, death.” I’ll walk you through the steps of bringing a Stihl 026 chainsaw back to life. Maybe I shouldn’t lead off with this, but m...
This silly story started Sunday evening when I was all jazzed up after watching my Broncos clinch their ticket to the Super Bowl! I decided I wanted to make a video for my YouTube channel that was Bronco related as a way of showing a little team spirit. So Monday morning I found a beetle kill pine log in our shop and decided I’d take a shot at chainsaw carving – something I’ve never done before but have wanted to try for a long time now. Using my 445 Husqvarna with a standar...

Hello all,Lately I have been thinking about making a cedar log cabin sauna for my cabin in the woods. I was thinking I could some how rig it up with a small wood stove. Anyone have any comments or suggestions to me about this? I am planning on squaring the logs so for it. My cabin is a scribe fit log cabin but I would rather not do that much work just for this sauna. Thanks!
