Wood Gloat

06-06-2008 11:27 PM by Kerux | 4 comments »

Picked up Josh from the last day of school and then dropped by the grounds crew to see if they had cut any tree’s down lately. They did, One HUGE Maple. I can have as much as I want, but I’ve learned to only take a little bit at a time. When I get this stuff turned/roughed out, I’ll go get some more. The crew is really nice, they are so loaded down with fallen tree’s that they are glad to get rid of it. I’ve got my eye on a giant piece that looks very quilted...

Chasing accomplishments...... #5: Bad news and good news

02-03-2012 08:38 PM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 17 comments »

I want to apologize if my blog has been the most depressing so far. This week my wife lost her grandmother. If you have been following my posts this past year, we have seen a lot of loss in friends and family. She is in a better place, which in and of itself is a relief. On to some good news. I have spent the past 6 months working on a project for a friend of mine. His office was due for some major updates to it’s network and server. This project has taken a lot out of me, both ...

MORE wood you say… but of course… can’t have too much wood… After turning my first pen, I became interested in pen blanks… went to see Trevor… he had told me that they were cutting some New Guinea Rosewood BURL… Also picked up some Huon Pine, Rose She-Oak, Dorrel [native Olive], Camphor, Tiger Myrtle and some Gutta Percha.. Went down to one of my favourite wholesale timber merchants… I had heard that there was a new guy there…...

Wood Gloat - The never ending generosity of an LJ

04-27-2010 07:51 AM by majeagle1 | 14 comments »

This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to go visit Ira, “Rustfever”, in Central Calif and he bestowed upon me some pieces of the greatest selection of woods I have seen in a long time. After a tour of his fantastic shop, he proceeded to take me to several “pallets” of his collection of fine woods.After about 4 hours of “drooling” and acting like a “kid in a candy store” I selected the following: 8 boards of “Red Gum Eucalyptus...

A journey into the workshop. #47: Great score, but not what I went in for...

So my trip to Lowes today was originally intended to pick up a cedar 4×4, and potting soil for LOMLs flower pots, but instead I ended up with a lumber rack and about eight fence pickets… I know now would be time for me to explain… You see I want to build LOML a planter box from cedar, and I was planning on fence pickets, but they are usually over $3.00 per and not particularly clear etc… for Cedar pickets, so I was going to pick up a Cedar 4×4, resaw and plane i...

Got on line last night and found a Firewood seller in my area. According to the web site, they were supposed to be open.

Also: cedar, juniper, mesquite, pine, oak, pecan, pear, ana apple woods available. They sell bundles from a full cord all the way down to “one fire size” bundles. Figured this would be a cheep way for me to...

Urban Logging #1: Wood gloat! 3 trees! One big spalded maple & 2 big black walnut trees

07-29-2012 02:47 AM by HalDougherty | 13 comments »

I’ve spent the entire day cutting trees into logs and bringing them home… They aren’t lumber yet and all of them are not here yet, but it won’t be long now. Here’s a couple of shots of the maple. It’s a little over 30’ long and the big end is 36”. It’s been down a year and it’s spalded, but not punky. I cut into it to see what it’s going to look like after it’s sawn. It’s also tiger striped through and through. I...

Work(shop) in Progress #9: so, what's the plane?

05-13-2009 07:07 PM by PurpLev | 28 comments »

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...
