Hand tool revalations #2: Stanley No. 48, new to me

01-11-2012 05:25 AM by Andrew | 6 comments »

The top, I decided to assemble this with tongue and groove joinery, I have a Stanley 48, this is the plane that started the madness.it has 2 cutters, and a pivoting fence. With the fence one direction it cuts a groove, swing it 180 degrees and it cuts the tongue. The plane will center on 7/8” thicknessed wood, but one tip… make a decision, either the fence is always on the face of the peice or the back, and stick with it. If you flip back and forth, it will cause the face of y...

Milling Lumber on the Farm

01-07-2012 07:29 PM by GuyK | 11 comments »

A few weeks back I had posted a question concerning drying lumber in a greenhouse, turning it into a kiln of sorts and got some great answers and help. thank to all that passed on their knowledge. So I just wanted to post some pictures of what I have been doing at the farm to warrant having wood dried. I am attaching some photos of what is a new experience for me. I have never milled lumber before a couple of weeks ago and really had no idea what I was doing from the start. Bu...

Lumber Scores! #1: Milling Walnut, Silver Maple, and some mystery logs!

01-02-2012 05:06 AM by SalvageCraft | 7 comments »

Hey all, Thanks for checking out my first blog post!I’ve been collecting logs for the past year or so with the intention of milling and drying them, but only recently got around to it. Most of it is from jobs I’ve done for people cleaning up fallen or storm damaged trees. A bunch of it is from neighbors on my street, too. I know most of the species I have in my log pile, but there are a few mysterious chunks I picked off the curb which could be just about anything. If anyon...

Walnut Slab Coffee Table #1: Flattening slab with router sled

01-01-2012 07:14 PM by Lumber2Sawdust | 5 comments »

I started a post about a wood gloat about a month ago. I found some nice walnut slabs at a sawmill for some projects. The first one up is a coffee table. I thought I would start a blog about the process of preparing the slab. I may follow this with more about adding a base to the table as it progresses. I’ve done a fair number of projects in the past, but nothing involving a big slab like this. I have been excited about getting this project started, but Christmas was approaching...

Skill Building #6: The Stanley #45 Multiplane and Door Trim

12-23-2011 09:55 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 7 comments »

Okay, added a wall to define my shop space for heating, etc. and included a pair of pocket doors. They’re framed but need trim. Enter some spaulted (stained, really), flat-sawn sycamore. Dressed the edges and faces, needed something to dress them up a bit. How about a bead? First the flat stock, ready to go. With the #45 set up and ready, an early key is to take multiple, shallow passes. Here’s a scratch pass: Start on the end of the piece, taking multiple passes ...

Thinking about making a go at saw milling

12-19-2011 04:29 AM by NewEnglandsWoodWorks | 19 comments »

I have been intrigued by the Logosol chainsaw mill for quite a long time now. In particular the M7 Chainsaw Mill. But in the high two thousand dollar range, it is way out of my budget. I believe that the mill is not nearly worth that price. I So, I think I’m going to start making my own chainsaw mill out of wood! I plan to make a wooden platform for the log bed with steps so I can move the log up one at a time. To control the depth of cut I am going to build a sled that will slide a lo...
