Reclaimed Glory #11: Hardwood score - Poplar & Cherry galore

330 days ago by palaswood | 12 comments »

I hit the jackpot last night on my salvage rounds. I’ve been frequently checking the discarded cutoffs behind an office furniture maker near my workplace, where I have found small, scrap pieces of cherry (some long, skinny pieces too, but nothing spectacular). Well last night I hit the mother lode (as far as I’m concerned anyway). Mostly poplar and american cherry, some clear pine and a flat, thin piece of mahogany (i think). I bound it up really well with twisted wire...

608 days ago by Harry Montana | 4 comments »

the principle is a wagon (brand Schiffer) which goes up and down on a rail and the bandsaw (brand Langer) is in a fixed position. For entire mill to operate like this you need 26 employees. Fully automatic mills are available but not recommendable because they get damaged and who is going to repair difficult electronics in the middle of the jungle in a country like Bolivia where there is no spare parts… operating bandsaw cutting ipe boards – 1 operating bandsaw cutting ipe boar...
