Update to My - Preface to the Wood Gloat of the day

06-08-2009 12:35 AM by Karson | 38 comments »

A month and 1/2 ago I posted Preface to my Wood Gloat where I blogged about some maple wood that I got from a sawmill in Delaware. I showed these logs that I saw in the sawmill back in Feb 2007. I asked the sawmill owner to cut of those logs for me. He said no he was going to keep them. Well today I got a phone call from the sawmill owner. He stated that he has closed the mill down and was going to go back to working masonry. I think that the economy and the lack of getting l...

I guess this is a tool gloat more than anything. I like hand planing boards, but sometimes, and especially when trying to get a board to a certain thickness (while keeping it straight) I just want to be able to throw the board through an infeed and automate that process. especially since I’m coming up with some projects that require large/long boards to be planed down. so, with a budget in mind, I keep an eye on craigslist from time to time. the only things I’ve seen in my p...
