Mesquite Slab Table #1: Cleaning up the slab

04-16-2018 07:11 PM by builtinbkyn | 29 comments »

Last week I picked up a really nice looking slab of mesquite from Rockler of all places. It’s nice and flat and 1.5”x18”x62” roughly. Thought before I went ahead and started work on a much larger slab table using the book-matched honeylocust slabs I have for my dining table, I’d get a feel for how this work would proceed and the trials and tribulations I will obviously encounter along the way. I could use a cocktail table in the TV room, so that’s the pl...

Loft Bed Additions #1: Bark Trim Shelf

03-01-2017 04:04 AM by chrisjhennessy | 0 comments »

My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...

Walnut, live-edge, end-table build

02-02-2017 03:28 AM by DavidOveracre | 0 comments »

So I was given what was basically an old chunk of walnut firewood by a friend, as well as some random scrap pieces of milled walnut (among other useful things as well). I decided one day to roughly slab the big chunk when I was already doing the same with a cedar log for another project. It looked amazing when I opened it up, so I continued with the process. I started by using my router sled on one side of both slabs (2 pieces is about all the big chunk yielded). Then sent both thru the plane...

Live Edge Walnut Desk with Waterfall Joinery and a Metal Leg #1: First Cuts With The Track Saw

10-19-2016 10:41 PM by JustinTyme | 4 comments »

I just started this build for a client. We originally started with 6/4 sweet gum. That did not work as the wood was heavily warped. We switched to a walnut that is fairly flat, but also only 4/4. Originally on of the 45’s on the desk was going to be a waterfall joint with a hidden spline. Instead I will most like craft the 45, but back it with metal to strengthen the joint. The other side of the desk will be supported by a metal leg. I have not decided what I will seal it with. I am ope...

Crotch Walnut Slabs - All Sizes and Shapes

03-15-2015 03:02 PM by dcg4403 | 0 comments »

Hey Folks, Just wanted to let any fellow woodworkers know that we’ve been focused on buying and cutting crotch sections of walnut & finally have them coming out of the kiln every 3-4 months. We have about 150 slabs in our Wimberley, TX located between Austin and San Marcos, TX. Part of what we offer is a focus on bookmatch sets although we certainly have a lot of singles. These sections of slabs are typically 18”-24” wide. We cut everything at 10/4. Lengt...

Making walnut slabs with a saw mill - Wood mizer LT40-HD

02-28-2015 01:01 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7q1lboLLjAQ In this video I’m making lumber from some Canadian Black Walnut logs on a 1992 wood-mizer LT-40HD. I’m flitch sawing the logs keeping the live edge on. Which is not only good for table tops, I get extra lumber that I can use for my chairs because of the curves of the legs, fit the curve of the boards. As always thanks for watching!
