Green and Greene Style Clock #2: DIY Router table out of necessity... aka Skil bash!

05-01-2012 07:36 PM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

Necessity is the mother of invention. I have this saying above the doorway into my shop because just about every day I am having to create something new to be able to complete what work I have set out for that day. Yesterday it was a portable router table to replace the piece of $#!* Skil router table I bought from HD some time back. The router table has always been a pain in my arse and was never truly good for routing anything well. When I milled all the pieces for my Greene and Greene styl...

Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #2: Phase 2

04-28-2012 08:27 PM by TZH | 15 comments »

I’d like to thank you, junipercanyon , for your advice on chain sharpening for ripping. Man, what a difference. I figured since you advised somewhere between 0 and 10 degrees I’d split the difference and go with 5 degrees. Slabbed all three in less time than it took me to do the first cut in Phase 1 of this project. This is some really fantastic wood I’m working with, and I can only hope to be able to score more of it in the future. Step 1: Scribe the lines:I used a laser...

Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #1: Beginning the slabbing process

04-13-2012 12:35 AM by TZH | 7 comments »

Because our daughter’s tv stand/entertainment center was such a hit with her and just about everyone else who’s seen it we thought it might be time to do one for us, too. I do these things really, really slow because I’m old, don’t ya know. So step one was working up the energy to actually photograph the walnut log prior to marking it for slabbing: Can’t really see the lines I scribed on the log using a laser line to guide the cut, but they’re there ...

Split Roubo Workbench #4: Milling, gluing and clamping - The Slabs

04-11-2012 03:54 AM by lysdexic | 32 comments »

I took my lumber for the top to Rick’s at The Woodworking Source to mill it up. What is taking my better part of 2 days we knocked out in about an hour and a half. These are some pics of Rick’s place. Its interesting that Rick does not do woodworking outside of work. He golfs because it is what he does to forget about what he does when he needs to forget about what he does. He is a professional and a great asset. ———————...

Milling My 80 foot Redwood #1: 80 foot redwood

04-11-2012 03:41 AM by Napaman | 23 comments »

Last week I got sidetracked on SIDETRACKED in order to mill our 80 foot redwood tree that was getting too dangerous to keep. We dont live on a huge tract of land…just a small little home with a smaller front yard…about 60 years ago someone decided to plant a redwood tree…I have seen a picture of it when it was only a year old…and it was tiny… By 2012 it was so huge for its spot that it had outgrown its safety—-at some point someone had topped the tree y...

gigantic pile of black locust logs #1: all the wood in the world and nothing to cut it with

04-10-2012 02:38 AM by emart | 8 comments »

about a week ago i was woken to up the merry sound of a 60 ft black locust falling down in my front yard and clipping my roof. fast forward to friday april 6. that tree and all the other 6 nearby have been cut up into logs so now i have potentially several thousand pounds of logs in my yard and no way to take advantage of it. does anyone in the seattle area know of a porta-mill i can rent? i tried to split a small log and re-saw it on my bandsaw but the wood is just too dense to split and...

media cabinet #3: cabinet begins

04-09-2012 11:30 PM by rasp | 0 comments »

well, didn’t exactly meet the deadline on this project. my parents came home and I had two coats of primer on the walls, and no cabinet. but I would rather take some extra time and ensure it’s nicely made than rush, make serious errors and have to buy another sheet or deviate from the original plan. using an oak straight edge and a circular saw, I broke the 4×8 sheet down into manageable pieces, ripped and crosscut them to size, and machined a 3/4” wide 3/8&#...

French screen doors #1: Starting with embedded framing squares?

04-04-2012 12:08 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

A set of hard to get screen doors for Anderson exterior french doors. This ‘beginning’ shows the production of the rails and styles with embedded metal to brace the doors to help with any possible sagging. The unusual thing about it is that as I was going to weld up some flat bar into an L shape, I instead found some $2 framing squares which looked exactly like what I would have made. View the short video of the start of these doors. The video begins after I have cut up and st...

Okay, so big update here. i did a lot of work the past couple days, and, a lot of milling. I swear, if theres such a thing as being a pro at milling, I’m it.
