Milling Weekend LJ event - Murchison, NZ #5: final - Forest bounty

09-02-2010 02:28 AM by daltxguy | 16 comments »

As the last post to the milling weekend, here is the haul from the weekend, stacked and now air drying. Starting MC is well above readable range on my moisture meter, therefore in excess of 45%, so very ‘green’. All told, about 40 bd ft of pine. Not an extraordinary amount but it does represent the first self milled lumber from my own trees, so it is a milestone. With 50 acres of harvestable plantation pine, surely the tip of the iceberg of what is possible!

This is what I am looking at doing. Ill try and post some actual photos today later too.

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #9: Milling and final dimensioning!

02-16-2011 06:43 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Well today is day 3, the halfway day again! It was a great day today, managed to fix the error I’d made last day by just swapping two pieces so I’m happy about that. I was concerned that my boards may have twisted between classes but the wood must be well and truly dry and acclimatized and I guess there was not too much stress in the boards so far so good. Managed to final dimension all of the pieces (about 12 of them) and just began figuring out the mortise and tenon joints o...

Wedding Clock #4: Hired an Apprentice

04-30-2011 04:58 PM by kenn | 3 comments »

I am still milling lumber, trying to get everything ready for some joinery. Once I get one side flat, I mark it “Flat”. That just helps me keep track of who’s where as I work the pieces and parts. Here is one of the birdseye maple shelves that I glued up then hand planed one side flat, mostly, and is now ready to be taken down to its final thickness. Sorry this picture is a little blurry but you can see how flat the wood is. Just so you can see the results of my swea...

Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

06-03-2014 03:33 AM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #3: Top is flat

03-23-2010 01:14 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I tapped the holes that were meant for the original fence with a 10mm tap. I drilled and countersunk the angle irons with the center hole slightly higher than the ones near the edge. I then re clamped the top to take the bow out and attached the angle iron with Gr. 8 machine screws. After a few hours of hand filing and test fitting, I got the angle irons attached plus I put lock nuts on the inside. My smallest feeler guage is .008 and must be forced under the straight edge at the worst po...
