So here is a look at that build Also I had a short follow up on some notes about the press and why im posting a day early..

Thinking about making a go at saw milling

12-19-2011 04:29 AM by NewEnglandsWoodWorks | 19 comments »

I have been intrigued by the Logosol chainsaw mill for quite a long time now. In particular the M7 Chainsaw Mill. But in the high two thousand dollar range, it is way out of my budget. I believe that the mill is not nearly worth that price. I So, I think I’m going to start making my own chainsaw mill out of wood! I plan to make a wooden platform for the log bed with steps so I can move the log up one at a time. To control the depth of cut I am going to build a sled that will slide a lo...

A bow saw project #3: Am I running out of projects?

09-17-2008 03:05 PM by Texasgaloot | 10 comments »

As of my last blog entry, I had received the hardware from Gramercy Tools, and I’m very satisfied with the quality of materials and service. The shorter blade necessitated a shorter stretcher, which I whipped out in a couple of hours from a scrap piece of cherry. Like many of my shop projects, the finished saw looks different from what I had visualized at the start of the project. The pins that catch the blade simply epoxy into the handles, which are pre-drilled to the proper d...

What Is Burl?

09-08-2012 05:51 PM by OregonBurls | 9 comments »

What Is Burl? I have discovered that this question is the most searched question for burls on the internet. Over 140,000 times world wide per month. So I read what Wikipedia’s definition is and found out that they are not clear and in some details are wrong in their definition. So I am going to attempt to clear the muddy waters. First of all Wikipedia says: “A burl (American English) or bur or burr (used in all non-US English speaking countries) is a tree growth in which the grain ha...

Split Roubo Workbench #1: I have put this off for far too long

03-20-2012 02:32 AM by lysdexic | 127 comments »

Ok, so let me get this blog started before I get so far behind that I put it off – forever. It is undisputed that the most important tool in the woodworking shop is a proper workbench. I don’t have one. I will not rehash the nuances of workbench design but after reading Schwarz’s and Scott Landis’s books, I had my heart set on a Roubo bench. I am not alone as several LJ’s have posted wonderful roubo benches. At first I wanted to build this… I r...

"Pet" projects #1: Small Iguana Cage

10-31-2010 09:20 PM by JPNpro | 1 comment »

The cage is made with integral mortise and tenons in hard maple. The upper section sits on a removable base in a rabbet cut in the table base. The base is made from black cherry with maple legs and a lower two piece shelf. The long term plan is to remove the cage top when the iguana outgrows it and make a nice table from the base unit. This is 2 in 1 design.

Lumber Making #1: A "Mini" Series - up to present

06-26-2007 07:10 AM by Dorje | 19 comments »

I’m posting these pictures as a means to get bloggin’…and, because I’m interested in milling and drying lumber (on a scale that I can accommodate – in the backyard). I’m also brand new at it, so it’s just fun to share! I would have liked to have photos or video of this ‘small time’ sawing in the backyard, but wasn’t quite there yet! Inspired by Bob’s forum topic post the other day on the craigslist cherry crotchwood, I took some pics of some crotchwood I cut in April… A couple p...
