Lumber Scores! #3: Log to Lumber - Milling small Ash logs

03-12-2012 12:20 AM by SalvageCraft | 14 comments »

Last year I got a pile of Ash logs from the city when they were taking down beetle infested trees in my neighborhood.I’ve been using bits of it here and there for small projects and barbecues.I’m doing a small table for my lady and have taken photos of my process for milling firewood sized chunks into thin slats for a rustic tabletop. Here be the log:I use the jointer to square two sides. All I need is two flat and square reference surfaces to register against the fence and ta...

From Logs to Lumber

03-11-2012 07:32 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 14 comments »

A little while back I had a Pecan tree delivered to me by a local tree service. Well I took two of the 4 logs to the mill and had them cut into 4/4 stock. the other trees I will have some 8/4 stock cut out of them. I took you guys on a field trip to the mill with me… here are both videos of the milling process. If you never considered having lumber milled for you, it is something you should look into…It is a fun process and a great way to save money…

Cutting Boards #2: Jointers and Handplanes!

03-08-2012 03:25 AM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

Started the milling process on the cherry boards tonight. The biggest problem in my shop right now is that it is in the basement of the townhouse I rent. Living room is right up stairs and the noise / smell really carries. So I used my jointer to quickly flatten one face then I cleaned them up with my new handplanes which I tuned up this past weekend. This comming weekend I am really hoping get get enough time to finish the milling process on all the boards and begin ripping them down to t...

This will be a bed. (I hope!) #2: Rough cuts / rough parts / glue everywhere / and a baby

03-03-2012 02:33 AM by LucasinBC | 0 comments »

Wow it’s been a solid month and a half since my last blog entry and I still have no bed. But I do have a new baby and I can say that for a good four weeks or so my time in the shop has been minimal. That being said I have been able to finish rough cutting everything and complete putting together the four legs for the bed. Some notes on my progress: I finally got all the wood I needed and rough cut it all. Here it is all on my workbench. This actually wound up taking me lon...

SAW CABINET #1: BUILDING MY TOY SAW A CABINET, OUTFEED TABLE, AND MORE

03-02-2012 10:03 PM by Metrotek | 3 comments »

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #1: Top&Legs Jointed, Starting to layout the Wooden Screws.

02-29-2012 03:52 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

A while black I posed a forum topic asking for folks advise on how to use this piece of wood for a workbench. A cabinet maker I bought my band saw from gave it to me for free. It was made from two slabs from a green oak tree so it cupped pretty bad. It had been used as a table for a restaurant. After assimilating everyone’s advice I decided I would cut out the piths, re-glue the top and use it to make a French workbench like Roy Underhill does in one of his shows. I love the splayed...

CHECK OUT THIS FIXTURE FOR ANGLES

02-29-2012 01:55 PM by Metrotek | 4 comments »

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm

lumber from tree #1: From tree-to-boards, a journey of sawdust fun

02-25-2012 03:10 AM by ChrisMc45 | 7 comments »

First “post” as a LJ. I have more shop-time than online-time, please don’t cut me slack but offer any how-to-do-better on HTML or posting as you will. A director at work had a big oak tree in his yard DIE (as in about a month) and have to come down. When he asked if I was interested, of course I leaped at the option. He had the arborist keep log-length 8-10 feet. His contacts were able to pull the four ~2-foot thick logs from his front yard…longer story, lesson: ...
