Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

1578 days ago by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #580: The Spice of Life

926 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me well know that I am not a ‘random’ type of person. I generally like to keep everything pretty organized and when I do something, it is done systematically and orderly. I find that as my way to keep my busy life under control. I have always been somewhat like that. With that said, I realize that doing an assignment or project such as the one I am working on now is something if a stretch for me. It isn’t often that I do something that is on this...

Wood Library #2: Hickory

2245 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 5 comments »

I know that there is already an entry on hickory but i figure that the more entries we get even if on the same wood our library will grow as everyone will present new ideas. so first off one thing that i noticed with hickory was that it chipped out a lot with router use. what i did to counter this though was take a lot of passes. even if you do take a lot of passes though you can still get chip out. also the king of chip out on hickory are the straight grained boards that are the ones that wo...

Commisions #5: Mirror Frame #5

2242 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 5 comments »

Well the frame is finally done and its time for the best part the finish ;) so i started off as usual with a fresh frame sanded to 180 my first 3 coats were General Finishes Natural Danish oil and this really brings out all this hickory’s got. i think that this is a prime example of how as Charles Neil stated in his video that the colors that really bring out the wood are the ambers and the yellows (not the exact statement but in the ball park) and i think this is a golden exa...

Re-handling a Framing Hammer

257 days ago by summerfi | 4 comments »

This old framing hammer is in need of a new handle. I’ll make one out of the hickory board it’s lying on. I’ve cut out the blank for the new handle. Here I’ve laid out the exterior outline of the handle and the break points for each curve. I’ve cut out the shape of two sides of the handle on the bandsaw. I saved the cutouts and taped them back on so I have lines to cut out the other two sides. Here is the blank after sawing has ...

Workbench #12: Bench Dogs

1012 days ago by CartersWhittling | 4 comments »

Hello. This weekend had I finished up my tailvise and made the bench dogs for my bench. I am currently making up a video to show you the tailvise, so when that is done in the next day or two I will post the finished vise. I made one dog for each hole in my bench. Aswell as a special dog that fits in the first hole in the tailvise for when I need to clamp work that would be to short otherwise. I have a thin strip glued with the grain in the opposite direction to give the extension...

Tool thoughts #42: Rediscovered a Lumber Source in CNY (central NY)

523 days ago by NedB | 3 comments »

I just made a happy re-discovery of a ‘local’ sawyer whom I’ve dealt with in the past. For those in the central NY area, chime in here if you’re looking for some decent hardwoods, Zach is the sawyer, and he has maple, ash, elm and hickory in 4/4 up through 10/4 at $1/bf. It may need some seasoning, but hey, that’s what lumber racks are for, right? I’m planning on making a run up his way in about a month, month and a half from now, just about the time that m...

1138 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 3 comments »

Ahhh what a Bitter Sweet Weekend… Over the Past week, A Hickory tree fell on my Grandfather’s home.. So I loaded up my trailer and tools and a saw.. To help remove the tree and repair the damage.. That was the bitter side of this short story… On the Sweet side, I was able to haul the tree straight to the mill and the result was a very nice stack of beautifully figured Hickory boards…. Spent the day stacking and preparing to dry the wood… Looking forward to being ...

Karate belt display #1: The Concept

1631 days ago by WoodshopJoe | 3 comments »

I have afforded the opportunity to create a great piece for the local karate school. Both of my kids are in the program and my daughter is close to obtaining her black belt in karate. It has been a journey that has taken her nearly 3 years to complete and an experience that she will be able to draw upon for the rest of her life. As is always does, the karate school closes down over the Christmas break. When classes resumed after the first of the year, we came back to a redecorated interio...
