Hello All, Well I did some inventory of my pallet stock and I need more pallets to begin my entertainment center project So I have to wait till I can re-assess my inventory after my next pallet pickup on Wednesday evening. In the mean time however, I decided to post something that is not related to my pallet craft blog. Introducing my side (filler) blog, “Blast from My not so Distant Past!” I w...

Maple Tree in the geezer stage of it's life...

07-16-2012 02:27 PM by HalDougherty | 9 comments »

I woke up this morning and when I let my shop buddy out for her morning search for ‘that perfect spot’ to take care of her doggie business and I found a huge limb broken out of the big maple tree near my front walk. The pictures are a little dark because the Sun was just rising when I took the pictures. I’ve been cleaning it up and while I’m resting I’ll write this blog entry before I finish cleaning it up. This maple tree was planted when my 2 story ...

Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #2: Phase 2

04-28-2012 08:27 PM by TZH | 15 comments »

I’d like to thank you, junipercanyon , for your advice on chain sharpening for ripping. Man, what a difference. I figured since you advised somewhere between 0 and 10 degrees I’d split the difference and go with 5 degrees. Slabbed all three in less time than it took me to do the first cut in Phase 1 of this project. This is some really fantastic wood I’m working with, and I can only hope to be able to score more of it in the future. Step 1: Scribe the lines:I used a laser...

Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #1: Beginning the slabbing process

04-13-2012 12:35 AM by TZH | 7 comments »

Because our daughter’s tv stand/entertainment center was such a hit with her and just about everyone else who’s seen it we thought it might be time to do one for us, too. I do these things really, really slow because I’m old, don’t ya know. So step one was working up the energy to actually photograph the walnut log prior to marking it for slabbing: Can’t really see the lines I scribed on the log using a laser line to guide the cut, but they’re there ...

72 degrees in my head, All the time

03-10-2012 04:22 AM by danzaland | 1 comment »

Okay so it wasn’t 72 degrees, but it was close. Early March and a 60degree plus day in Rochester, NY, you want to be outside. SO I was. I squared up a round log.Video Log Overview I used my Logosol Timber Jig and a 2×6 rail I built (seen here). Close Up 1 Close Up 2 So now with my circular saw and a hand saw I plan on cutting this 8×8 down to 4×6’s and trying to make sawhorses. BTW: Can anyone name the movie this entry is quoting?

More Pecan Wood To Slab up

10-10-2011 09:17 PM by cdbridge39 | 2 comments »

We Have a lot of storm damaged pecan trees here in the south. All you have to do is ask and its yours. Well you still got to cut it and load it but its free. Two trailer loads is about all my back can stand at one time. I have a small chainsaw mill that fits on my bar and I slab out chunks of wood. It’s also called a beam maker but you can cut any size slab you want to. All you have to do is move the board that the mill runs on over and screw it down. You also have to sharpen your chain...

Milling a black walnut tree! Advise wanted

01-20-2011 04:21 AM 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...
