Custom Dishwasher Panel Progress #2: Stocking Up.

09-18-2007 07:22 AM by gizmodyne | 7 comments »

MotivationWife: Just get out there and start working on it. Good advice actually. I was dead tired after some yard work, but I went into the shop Sunday afternoon on Kristin’s advice. Board SelectionI made some changes to the cutlist to reflect a few new measurements. Also I did not have enough wide boards and wanted to avoid having to slice up any more beams. Revised cut list So I culled through my pile of old fir and pulled out some prime specimens. I finished up Sunday...

This week in urban logging #7: Still at it

10-31-2008 12:30 AM by Daren Nelson | 11 comments »

I opened up a pretty large mulberry today and knew on the first cut this was going to be interesting. So I cut a little deeper. Flipped it over…and urban logging strikes again. 2 screws, oh well there was plenty of good lumber under them. Yea those are 21” wide mulberry boards with figure. Kinda weird birdeye/burl clusters, pretty. Mulberry is very pretty anyway. It darkens to the color of aged black cherry as it dries. It is much more attractive dry. Not a bad sta...

This week in urban logging #14: Plenty of urban logging, just not much blogging

05-04-2010 04:11 PM by Daren Nelson | 17 comments »

So I decided to fix that with a few pictures of what I have been up to. Last weeks load. The pines I am cutting for the guy who dropped off the hardwood in exchange. I saw his logs into framing for his deer cabin and I keep the walnut (many)-catalpa-birch-elm…for myself. One of the catalpa is, well, LARGE. 50” x 8’ I picked the “ugliest” catalpa out first. I love ugly logs. I sawed out some live edge slabs for benches. 2” thick ~24” wide and ...

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 ...

Medieval dugout chest . #1: Darn this is heavy .

01-01-2012 02:32 AM by randomray | 5 comments »

First off I want to thank all the wonderful supportative people checking out my work . You folks are the ones that made me decide to share my thoughts and projects . That and I realized not many people do my style of crazy projects . There are some and some of them are way better then me . But if I can do it , I’m betting you can too and probably better . Second , I’m dyslexic so there will be mispellings and words out of order and stuff like that . Unless you are youself you don...

Bunk Bed Build #2: Cutting the Legs, Prep Rails, Cut Mortices

07-08-2013 03:24 PM by Mauricio | 14 comments »

Wow I got a lot done yesterday. My wife and I also painted are bedroom in between woodworking sesions. She did the lower part of the walls, when she was done I’d go in and paint the top. I’m sore today! But it feels good. So I cut the legs to length by hand. The chop saw wasnt cutting accuratly enough for me so I cut these to length with a knife, a saw and my new bench hook. Then took the #4 to the end grain. Choped the Head and Foot board rails to length. Then ...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #11: Ahhh the smell of fresh sawdust!

07-25-2013 11:18 PM by Mark Shymanski | 1 comment »

Finally got into the shop last night for a short while. I needed more chine logs so I ripped the most dry 2 X 10 I had in the shop (recovered from another project) and was pleased with how much more straight grain I got from this piece. Bad part was the few knots were small and some popped out as I was sawing, and that is why it is important to have eye protection. I got hit several times in the glasses and one particularily ornery piece just below the hairline, man that stings :-) I also...

Backyard Alder Milling #2: Divide and conquer

03-03-2008 08:22 PM by damnHippie | 2 comments »

Saturday was the day. Mr. Dorje came over with the tools and know-how, I provided assistance when able. We spent about seven hours, milling five logs each between six an eight feet long, and about 26” in diameter. The two widest logs we milled into 10/4 slabs, the rest we milled closer to 5/4 planks. The 10/4 is ear-marked for a friend of mine who will use it to make electric guitar bodies. The rest? I’ll figure that out when it is dry and as the need arises. It was a g...
