Milling a black walnut tree! Advise wanted

01-20-2011 04:21 AM by Firewood20 | 8 comments »

I have recently come accross a black walnut tree that will be dropped in the next couple weeks. It is 19” diameter and 30ft tall. I have a big enough chainsaw and chainsaw mill jig attachment but this is the first time ever attempting milling “green” wood. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas of what to do with it after I have it cut down to rough cut lengths and thicknesses? Also what about drying it out if it needs it? or ? Will it affect any future projects ie: cabinetry, sh...

Workbench #2: Workbench #2, after 2 years of use. Opinions Please?

01-19-2011 09:02 PM by Jason Brewer | 7 comments »

The construction of the top is quite simple. The top is laminated walnut with strips of mahogany in between and wrapped with brazilian cherry and african mahogany. The dovetails are only 1” thick and the 4”x4” mahogany is glued and joined with the dovetails on the sides and tenon through the top. The top is 3” thick. with 4” wide apron that is 4” thick. so the looks are 4” thick, 20”x78”. My number 1 complaint is i miss my first bench setup, this was my second workbench. My first I had...

When you comment on something nice that a person you meet has, have you ever noticed the way they say, “I bought this here” or “I picked this up in this country?” Sometimes it seems like they are saying, “The Sheppard tended the sheep, the sheer harvested the wool, then the spinster spun the yarn, and the artisan knitted the sweater, but I, yes I, bought it.” As if the purchase made them part, and even the most important part of the making process.

Easy Shop Table

01-14-2011 04:02 AM by Lockwatcher | 37 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

Huck is Back!!!!!

01-12-2011 09:44 PM by Huckleberry | 9 comments »

So I have been hit with a lot of emails asking where we’ve been. We took a break and re-focused our material. We had some good things and some bad things on our show. So we hope to get rid of the bad (lighting, poor audio, better clarity ect…) and enhance the good. We have out fitted ourselves with nicer camera equipment and tools, of which we will be airing some buying tips as we wanted to keep it like the average “Joe” shop. So here are some pictures of the upgr...
