NOT your average screen door: Raised Panel work

10-14-2014 06:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, last episode, I was getting a center stile made. Well, after measuring three times, the dang thing still was short. Yanked it out of the door frame, used it to mark another board. THIS time, I held the new blank to it’s new home, and marked things out, and cut leaving the lines. I needed to cut a groove on both edges of the now center stile. Clamped it into the bench vise, and gave this old boy a work out First a little hammer work to center the cutter. Might have had ...

NOT your average screen door#2

10-09-2014 06:30 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, after much cussing and fighting, got all the rails fitted to their mortises. This being the last on this side of the door. Wound up making it an open ended affair. The lock rail took the longest, and I think I traced it’s ancestry back about ten generations… Ok, when I go to assemble the door for the final time, I will install a few wedges into each tenon, then pin the joint with a couple of dowel pins. Managed to measure for the center stile, and get the measu...

NOT your average Screen Door?

10-08-2014 04:24 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Back door has a nasty looking, white, metal screen door. Seen way better days. Have been told by the BOSS to make a new screen door. Trip to Menards, picked out a few 1×4 x8’ Pine boards (3) a couple 1×6s and a couple 1×8s. Maybe $26+tax? Got things down into the Dungeon Shop to lay stuff out Hmm, might get a little bit crowded down here. Laid out the parts to locate a few joints And somehow managed to open the tool chests, to drag out a few tools ...

Homemade Band sawmill #1: Building the frame

10-03-2014 07:37 PM by geekwoodworker | 9 comments »

I have been thinking of building a small band sawmill for about a year or more and finally decided to make one. I built a bandsaw from Mathias at woodgears and love it. So I decided to use the same design but modify it to cut horizontally. It will only be used for small logs 6 feet long and no bigger than 28 inches in diameter.It needs to break down easily for transport to my dads and back. I like the lumber smith saw so I think I will make it similar. http://www.lumbersmith.com/ The frame...

Artemesia - Worlds Largest Craftsman Home

09-28-2014 08:04 PM by Jerry | 13 comments »

You will see some amazing joinery and craftsmanship in this slide show. Great for ideas… An ad man named Leonard Fenton has spent well over two decades now working on Artemesia, reputedly the largest Craftsman house ever built. And it is something. The 13,300-square-foot mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood was built a century ago by Frederick Engstrum, a construction tycoon who built downtown’s lovely Rosslyn Hotel, according to a story last year in Los Angeles Ma...

Chain saw milling....I hope...LOL! #1: The limbs just fell from my walnut tree...with a little help

09-19-2014 12:46 AM by DocSavage45 | 27 comments »

Those of you that have followed some of my ramblings know that I have a dream of harvesting the wood from the compost site in my county. I’m starting about 30 years too late but against some very excellent advice from some competent LJ’s last winter I purchased a 50 cc 20 inch Poulan Pro and a all steel construction chain saw mill from eBay. Dallas gave me some professional advice on what where when and how that I have been digesting. Being a Woosie I bought Kevlar chaps and ...

Morris style glider #3: Cutlist 2.0

09-18-2014 08:48 PM by Orange008 | 0 comments »

After putting together my cutlist, I called up the lumber yard that I am getting the material from. They emailed me the latest price list for all their products. Seeing that you are charged extra for boards wider than 8”, I decided that going back to the cutlist to reorganize the pieces on 8” wide may benefit me. I had too much room left over on 9” wide pieces anyway, so fitting them onto 8” worked well (below), and I actually had less waste. I didn’t even hav...
