Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...
Well really two stages today….the main event was this afternoon. Then I went back down to do a wee bit more, as a stage 2….....didn’t quite work out. Leg was having issues towards the end. Sitting here with an ice pack on the leg, and a Norco pill in me. Anyway…here we go…. I removed the brace till from it’s perch, and placed the electric grinder in it’s place. I needed a couple other toys to move aside….and then try to remove the...
Ok, not much for a picture today,maybe later on. Need to move and remove a few things in the shop. Can’t do a whole lot over by the Lathe bench. Too much other junk in place. However.. I can empty out, and clean up Tool Chest #1, and have it taken upstairs as a Hope Chest. I can remove a couple power tools from one spot, place them where the plane til is. Then place the power tools where the til used to be. I may have enough room to move the brace til over beside the pla...
Another bit done on the coffee table. Well, actually it is done and in use, but in the time line of the build, here we go getting those feet looking a bit nicer. View on YouTube
I hope everyone had a Festive Christmas, and I wish everyone a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! I didn’t realise quite how long I had been out of the game, until today. I seem to have spent all my time with Medical Specialists. I have had the operation on my right knee, and that is progressing nicely, at least I am no longer walking with a stick. Unfortunately the second spinal block, did not work on my back, so what happens next, I have no idea, and I am also waiting to see if th...
The keys and resonators are made and have a rough tune. It’s now time to get everything ready and do the final tune.We need to drill mount hole in the keys before we can tune, first we need to locate and install the suspension components. The glockenspiel taught me that location and spacing of the suspension is a critical step. Space the suspension to close and the keys rub against the suspension causing vibration noise and affecting the sound from the keys too far and there isn̵...
Made a lot of mistakes on this one, which caused me to learn a bunch of new tricks and fixes. Firstly, I shouldn’t have used crooked wood for the box sides. I knew what would happen. All the corners were bad of course. I cut them out! Then when I was doweling the new corners, they cracked. Just wanted to show my project that I love and hate and maybe hear some feedback, or other horror stories.
Building the frame was just straight forward woodworking, accurate measurement and square cuts. I built the frame out of cherry 1. I like cherry and how it darkens over time and 2. it was a $400 upgrade for frame on one of the commercial marimba websites. I can get cherry at a reasonable price here.The first thing is to make the two ends. Time to make the keyboard frames. This is one place where building the glockenspiel first really helped in understanding why and how important...

Hello, I am trying to build the 4 legged stool Fabian Fischer’s stools online fine woodworking. I am having problems drilling the holes at compound angles and was looking for some advice. Also any advice on carving out the seat. Thanks
