SAW BUCKS: TAKING THE BULL BY THE HORNS The First and Only Sawmill Forum to Put Sawyers in the Drivers Seat At last there’s a new forum out there that’s geared up for sawmill operators and it looks like “Saw Bucks” is just what the doctor ordered. Focused on sawmills and all aspects of the trade, Sawyers take the lead instead of being a secondary topic section like other sites where milling is not the main stream content but just a spin off. After seeing how each section add...

Video: Tips on Buying Great Hardwood Lumber

09-24-2008 04:56 AM by Keith Cruickshank | 12 comments »

I just finished editing my most recent video—this one featuring Boston-based furniture maker John Fox. I was fortunate to be able to capture this unique, inside look at his wood selection process. (5 Minute Video) Video Link Here: John Reed Fox: How a Master Artisan Selects Wood In this video, I was able to film master furniture maker John Fox collaborate with fine-hardwood dealers, Rick and Brian Hearne, as he searches from among Hearne Hardwood’s 1,000,000 board feet of to...

Lumber Purchase today.

09-04-2008 02:13 AM by Karson | 18 comments »

Those of you who know me know that I’m always on the lookout for wood (not). I’ve got more lumber than I’ll ever use in my lifetime. But I’ve been on the lookout for some Aromatic Red Cedar. I saw a log at an acquaintance home and I told him to cut it up. He owns a Woodmizer. I went to pick up the wood today. He also cut up a few other cedar logs at the same time so he probably had 1000 bd ft cut. I picked up 6 1X10 – 6’, 6 1X6- 8’, 6 1×...

Knotty Pine #5: All done (for now)

03-22-2008 01:15 AM by Kevin | 0 comments »

I took two days off work and drove back to my Grandpa’s this weekend in an effort to complete the de-construction of the house and salvage all of the Knotty Pine and Ash that I could. I just got to town when I called Grandpa and he informed me that he decided to leave the house standing and use it as storage for the farm. Crap – I wasted a weekend. Oh well, what ever he wants to do is fine with me. I guess Dad and I will go fishing instead – maybe not such a waste of a...

Knotty Pine #4: Anyone want any?

03-18-2008 02:20 AM by Kevin | 2 comments »

I decided today that I would offer some of the Knotty Pine and Ash up for sale to anyone on Lumber Jocks. I am not doing this to make money, I am doing this because I hate to see it go up in smoke. If I have no takers by this weekend, I’ll get what I can and the remainder will probably be burnt down. Cost? – Make an offer. Location – SE Kansas or Wichita, Kansas

Knotty Pine #3: Brought home a trailer load today

03-17-2008 04:33 AM by Kevin | 7 comments »

Here are a few of the boards we have been able to salvage so far. This is probably 1/3 of the Knotty Pine that is there. I will probably get half this much again and then let the building be destroyed. I just simply do not know what to do with all of it, have no good place to store it, and quite frankly do not have the time to keep going back home every weekend to work on it. Trailer is 18’ x 7’ Most are 8’ – 9’, some 4’, some 12’, and some ...

Operation Holtzapffel #3: Lumber Acquired

03-05-2008 06:20 AM by Damian Penney | 9 comments »

Made another trip to PALS for the rest of the lumber, and seeing as my lumber rack isn’t wide enough most of it is on the floor or just propped up at the moment. Here’s all the 8/4 stock waiting to be butchered. I ran all my stock through Cutlist Plus and here’s what it came up with, not too much waste which is nice (and I’ll use whatever is left over eventually anyway) You can click the Cutlist Pic for a bigger view. Some parts are doubled up because I n...

My Canarywood purchase

02-05-2008 12:33 AM by GaryK | 15 comments »

Last week while I was in California I stopped by at a place I used to get wood.I was just going to look until I found this canarywood. All of the canarywood I haveseen before has been straight grain kinda plain looking. Here is 17bf I had shipped back home. $5.99 a BF. The flash washes out the color, and without the flash it’s dark. So I included both.It’s kind of hard to get a true sense of what it looks like in a picture but I think youwill get the idea. Almost all the col...
