Milling a black walnut tree! Advise wanted

01-19-2011 at 08:21 PM by Firewood20 | 8 comments »

I have recently come accross a black walnut tree that will be dropped in the next couple weeks. It is 19” diameter and 30ft tall. I have a big enough chainsaw and chainsaw mill jig attachment but this is the first time ever attempting milling “green” wood. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas of what to do with it after I have it cut down to rough cut lengths and thicknesses? Also what about drying it out if it needs it? or ? Will it affect any future projects ie: cabinetry, sh...

Firewood sawing & Storing #1: The Original Woodcutter's Helper

08-24-2010 at 03:27 PM by Helper | 10 comments »

The Original Woodcutter's Helper is precisely that, it measures the log you are sawing to your exact specifications. Its simple & effective. Firewood the same length stacks tighter & neater saving space. Never struggle with trying to fit a piece of wood that is too long into your stove ever again. Anyone who has collected firewood has used various techniques for determining where to saw the log or tree into wood that will fit their stove. Some people turn or swing their saw edge-wi...

tragedies #13: Chinese elm logs and the forces of nature

04-07-2010 at 05:06 AM by Gary Fixler | 16 comments »

After picking up the Chinese elm logs the other day, I noticed hours later they were rapidly beginning to check. I headed out a few hours after that to seal them up, and of course, a few hours later it was raining. The not-yet-dry Anchorseal began to wash away: My truck bed ran white with wax: And so did my driveway: The following day I moved the pieces to the back yard, shortly before it began to rain again. I put them under the Hollywood junipers, where the thick fo...

Rescued Wood #17: Flamboyant Crotch Anyone?

02-02-2010 at 11:23 AM by PG_Zac | 4 comments »

No not that !! Get your mind above the belt. Here is the pile of Flamboyant (Delonix Regia) I started slabbing today.. And here are some gorgeous crotch pieces from the log to the left of the helmet in the picture above....This wood is a beautiful creamy yellow colour and is quite soft. Unfortunately the smell is not particularly pleasant – try to imagine a faint after-smell of pine vomit. I know that sounds gross, and it is, but fortunately it is not a strong odour. I wonder ...

Rescued Wood #16: My Drying Room (Kiln?)

02-02-2010 at 05:24 AM by PG_Zac | 8 comments »

I don’t really think I could call it a Kiln yet, but it is helping the wood to dry a little quicker. More than a year ago I started building a prototype solar kiln, but didn’t finish it for various reasons. Among other reasons, we moved to the farm, and there are more pressing jobs taking up my time. With all the logs I’ve been collecting and slabbing, I was running out of under-cover storage for air-drying, and anyway, my prototype kiln was never designed to hold thi...

Rescued Wood #15: First Word-of-Mouth Referral

02-01-2010 at 02:41 PM by PG_Zac | 9 comments »

I spent several days of the last few weeks slabbing a large Eucalyptus in a very public place (See my Rescued Wood Posts 8, 9, 10 11, 13), and many people stopped by to watch what I was doing, and to question me about my Alaskan Mill. One of these spectators knows someone who had cut a heavy branch off a Yellowwood tree because it was threatening his home & business. (let’s call him Jack) So, Jack is a lover of wood, but not a serious woodworker and he didn’t want to dump...

Rescued Wood #14: Beauty IN the Beast

02-01-2010 at 02:04 PM by PG_Zac | 2 comments »

So you take one seriously grotty, old, dry, termite ridden, rotting chunk of gumtree (Eucalyptus).Strip off as much of the rot & termite crud as you can with a crowbar.Slice it on a bandsaw.And admire the beauty within after a little sanding and a quick coat of liquid wax .You never can judge a book by its cover
