Getting large black oak tree removed - looking for someone wanting wood

07-07-2016 12:10 PM by nita | 16 comments »

I was told that it would be best to remove my large old black oak tree, but I’d like to find someone that could use the wood for woodworking or firewood. I’m getting quotes from tree trimmers to remove it. It currently has one limb that snapped off from the top that is hanging down and needs removal.

Oak Storage Bench #2: Stock Preparation

02-02-2016 09:44 PM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

I prefer getting my wood in the rough for two reasons: The first reason is the cost. Rough lumber is incredibly cheaper than 4-side finished wood. The other reason is flexibility. I am able to “find” the best part of the board in the rough lumber whereas, if your wood is pre-finished, you are stuck with what you get.So here is my workflow: LayoutRough lengthRough WidthJoint 1 face and 1 edgeFinal width + 1/16” Joint to final widthPlane to final thicknessFinal lengthLet me...

In the begining...

01-14-2016 02:33 PM by Jeff2016 | 3 comments »

A real wood working shop, something I have always wanted. However, time, money and location have yet to be on my side. While no stranger to wood and the useful/ wonderful things you can create from it, most of my working life to this point has meant portable tools loaded into a company van parked out front of the house.That’s how I have fed my wonderful better half and our 5 kids.That era has ended, and the modest “storage shed” I hastily built a few years ago is about to be...

Home Made Alaskan Mill #1: Take one on Alaskan Mill I made

01-08-2016 09:57 PM by Will Merrit | 0 comments »

So I have been bit by the woodworking bug. The evolution to the point where this blog comes in has taken a relatively short time. I have always wanted a shop for my various handy-man tools and such but back in March of 2015 around the birth time of my 3rd daughter I got sucked into woodworking. I cannot really explain how it started as I believe the desire had always been there just had never reached the combustion point. My wife and I decided we would save our $$ over the summer while wo...

Turning Gasoline into Lumber #2: Enough playing around, now lets make some lumber.

10-28-2015 11:05 AM by Garret D., Level Timber Co. | 2 comments »

So after playing around with the Alaskan saw mill, using the chainsaw, I saw that I wanted to do this, but that was just too slow. So we upped our game and got the Norwood HD36 bandmill. The link below is my first video on using the 36 inch Bandmill (13 foot bed). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_-7IGGZNfk I am neither good at making videos, nor am I very good as a sawyer. But I am having a great time.

Just hit the mother load of lumber

07-19-2015 01:17 AM by Todd Swartwood | 10 comments »

I have not had much time to share anything going on in my woodworking life lately. My wife and I purchased a 15,000 sqft building about 3 1/2 years ago. So far the building houses a 1700 sqft 3 bedroom apartment we live in currently, and my shop at about 3200 sqft. We are turning one 2200 sqft section of the building into a Gluten Free Bakery my wife will run, as she is a master baker. Anyway I am making hardwood flooring for the Bakery and the area directly above the bakery that will become...

Saturday in the Woodworking Shop #8: Dehumidifying Lumber Storage

07-14-2015 02:35 PM by AndyPitts | 2 comments »

Today I’m talking about how I maintain my lumber stash ready for building furniture where I live in humid eastern Virginia. Left to it’s own in an unconditioned space, my kiln dried lumber (6-8% MC) would gradually migrate toward 12 % MC, so I’ve solved that by dehumidifying my storage location. Nothing high tech, here, but it works. In my work I like to start out with wood of a known moisture content, approximately the equilibrium moisture content for the intended environme...

Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch #2: My First Wood Order

06-27-2015 01:15 AM by Ted Ewen | 3 comments »

So, not terribly exciting on the face of it, but I’ve placed my first order for wood: 16×4.2 meters of 45mm x 95mm, untreated20×4.2 meters of 38mm x 57 mm, treated Thats enough for 8 sawhorses (though I will only be building 4) and an unknown number of coops, but at least I get to play around now. At 69 cents per 4.2m, I can afford to be profligate. Yay!
