Lumber Score!

I was walking through the timber a month ago, and found a huge smooth bark hickory that had fallen from a storm. The trunk was 24” in diameter at its base, and 30 foot up the trunk it was 16” in diameter. When I saw it, I knew it just had to be milled. I already had a cherry that had fallen that was 20 foot tall and a foot in diameter. So, I called a sawyer that came and picked up one 6 foot and two 12 foot hickory logs, and one 5 foot and two 8 foot cherry logs. ...

Bitter Sweet Hickory

06-13-2011 06:51 AM 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 ...

From Southwest to Contemporary

05-27-2011 05:58 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 20 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options My mom’s house is full of cabinet doors that were made in a Southwestern style and its time for a change. Replacing the cabinets is certainly an option and just replacing the doors alone would work too. But what if we could use our woodworking skills to modify the doors instead. In our situation, this turned out to be the perfect solution. So join me as I show you how to carefully modify and refinish my momR...

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #6: Another Reason to hate finished handles.

05-08-2011 04:02 AM by RGtools | 6 comments »

I needed a new handle for my hewing hatchet, I have way too many projects right now to build one so I broke down and shelled out the 6 bucks for one. I always sand off the finish on my handles so I can just apply oil, the tool just feels better that way. It removes the bugs too.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #264: Back to Some Woodworking

02-22-2011 02:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 19 comments »

I finally got back to doing some woodworking yesterday. I had finished drawing this pattern up last week and got it cut out, but it seemed that I was in several other directions the past several days and it was kind of woven in between all the other things I was doing. It is a simple design by my own standards, and I had mixed feelings about it. I find however that every design doesn’t have to be complex to be successful, and I think it will have a wide appeal. After seeing it fin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #241: Pictures!!

01-30-2011 04:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really made good headway yesterday. Today I am in the home stretch of things and it is going to be really fun to see all four of these trays come together at once. I have never really done four at a time like this, but since they are all kind of different styles, it is rather exciting. I will get right down to business and show you where I am at with everything. I took pictures this morning, but nothing here is finished or even sanded for that matter. I do sand things to be pretty sm...

Project Instructions #1: Jewelry Dishes - Instructions for a Great Gift Item

12-29-2010 03:26 AM by Peter Oxley | 2 comments »

I made several of these for Christmas gifts this year. They aren’t difficult, and they seemed to be well received. They use a fairly small amount of material, so they may be the perfect project for that pretty little chunk of wood you just can’t throw away. Start with ¾” material. The blank for the dish is about 3” diameter, and the post is ¾” wide by about 3-4” long. Put the post blank on the lathe and use a roughing gouge to turn it round. Now...

Notes from the workday. #8: Hickory travertine entryway

12-11-2010 09:48 PM by vicrider | 7 comments »

Well, I’ve been absent from LJ’s for quite a while helping friends and relative’s around the state do remodel work on their homes. I thought I would share a couple things we worked on. First up is an entryway of 1X4 hickory flooring inlaid with 18” travertine tile. The space is 6’x10’ and the Mrs. wanted the pattern to be set on the bias. Neither my pal Ken nor I had ever done a mixed media floor like this so it took us nearly a day to just plan how w...
