Help out a new woodworker

138 days ago by mptap | 10 comments »

Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like. I don’t have a planer or really any good hand tools yet (I borrow my grandfather’s tools, but even his are limited in the hand tool department). My firs...

Keim Lumber - Best Lumber yard that I have ever been in.

278 days ago by Ampeater | 6 comments »

My wife and I just returned from a trip to “Amish Country” in Holmes County, Ohio. We spent a day and a half eating, shopping for quilt material and visiting many craft stores. My wife was happy doing all this but I was very happy when we entered Keim Lumber in Charm, Ohio. This place is the greatest and it is much more than a lumber yard. They had the best exotic lumber that I have ever seen and it was all in great shape. Here is a photo of part of their lumber display. ...

Bingo, here was the solution I was looking for. A couple of days later i had it about full. He didn’t tell you on the video hat it takes two men and a boy to move it before the casters are on it, ugh!

Ash tree

444 days ago by Nate Finch | 5 comments »

Last fall, my wife saw a post on Freecycle about an ash tree that had been taken down in a neighboring town. No pictures but they said it was pretty big. I jumped on it, and was lucky enough to be the first one to respond. We drove there and WOW, hit the motherload! Two large log sections, over 2 feet in diameter, one 15 feet long, one 8 feet long, both perfectly straight with almost no branches or knots and no rot. I’d been eyeing a small sawmill that’s only a mile from my hou...
