Novel Bookshelf- drawing in sketchup

02-17-2010 12:21 AM by Adam Weis | 1 comment »

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.

Jigs... #1: Log Sled for Bandsaw

02-10-2010 06:24 AM by Hoakie | 8 comments »

One of the reasons I got my Rikon 14” Deluxe was to mill small logs into lumber and bowl blanks. In order to do this safely it is important to keep the log steady while pusing it past the blade. Here is my version of a log sled that I built for it 1) The base is 3/4” BB Ply. On the top I have placed two Incra tracks to help adjust the depth of cut. 2) I have added a runner to the bottom to ride in the miter slot on the BS. (it also fits in the slot in my router table ...

22 Trees - You fell them , You take the wood

02-04-2010 04:30 PM by PG_Zac | 2 comments »

Calling all South African LumberJocks (and any other LJ’s ambitious enough) The town where I stay is looking to remove 22 trees from one of our parks, and is looking for a cheap option. With my little fledgling reputation as an urban miller, they approached me with a proposal – If I fell them, I get the wood as payment. Unfortunately, I’m not equipped to be a tree-feller, so I turned them down. I did, however, offer to do 1 or 2 trees, depending on the species and si...

Rescued Wood #17: Flamboyant Crotch Anyone?

02-02-2010 07:23 PM by PG_Zac | 4 comments »

No not that !! Get your mind above the belt. Here is the pile of Flamboyant (Delonix Regia) I started slabbing today.. And here are some gorgeous crotch pieces from the log to the left of the helmet in the picture above....This wood is a beautiful creamy yellow colour and is quite soft. Unfortunately the smell is not particularly pleasant – try to imagine a faint after-smell of pine vomit. I know that sounds gross, and it is, but fortunately it is not a strong odour. I wonder ...

Rescued Wood #16: My Drying Room (Kiln?)

02-02-2010 01:24 PM by PG_Zac | 8 comments »

I don’t really think I could call it a Kiln yet, but it is helping the wood to dry a little quicker. More than a year ago I started building a prototype solar kiln, but didn’t finish it for various reasons. Among other reasons, we moved to the farm, and there are more pressing jobs taking up my time. With all the logs I’ve been collecting and slabbing, I was running out of under-cover storage for air-drying, and anyway, my prototype kiln was never designed to hold thi...

Rescued Wood #15: First Word-of-Mouth Referral

02-01-2010 10:41 PM by PG_Zac | 9 comments »

I spent several days of the last few weeks slabbing a large Eucalyptus in a very public place (See my Rescued Wood Posts 8, 9, 10 11, 13), and many people stopped by to watch what I was doing, and to question me about my Alaskan Mill. One of these spectators knows someone who had cut a heavy branch off a Yellowwood tree because it was threatening his home & business. (let’s call him Jack) So, Jack is a lover of wood, but not a serious woodworker and he didn’t want to dump...

Rescued Wood #14: Beauty IN the Beast

02-01-2010 10:04 PM by PG_Zac | 2 comments »

So you take one seriously grotty, old, dry, termite ridden, rotting chunk of gumtree (Eucalyptus).Strip off as much of the rot & termite crud as you can with a crowbar.Slice it on a bandsaw.And admire the beauty within after a little sanding and a quick coat of liquid wax .You never can judge a book by its cover
