This week in urban logging #12: It's been awhile since my last report (but I came back with pictures)

05-17-2009 10:33 PM by Daren Nelson | 9 comments »

I like crotches. I like milling them, I like making things with them. Some one dropped off this “crotchy” elm the other day. The butt log is kinda a big devil. So I cut one off to mill. I was a little bummed because I see 2 hearts, which usually means less figure/ more bark inclusion… I had to trim it abit to get it to fit the mill for width (more on that later) First slab looks decent. 28” wide…not bad for a bandmill that is advertise...

23" wide by 8/4 Purpleheart PLEASE HELP!!

07-10-2010 01:25 AM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

I have a friend who wants to sell me some purpleheart. It’s roughsawn 8/4 with some being up to 23 inches wide. It is select stuff, no knots great lumber. Since it’s so wide would it be worth more and what would I do with pieces that wide. He has some other widths of 8/4 and 4/4, they range from 10 to 16 foot long. Would the longer pieces be worth more per board foot. I need to know what to pay and if I have to buy all how much trouble it would be to sell the wide stuff as I don&#...

A LumberJock offered to me a most wonderful gift. Some time in his shop.

07-31-2008 01:09 AM by Karson | 16 comments »

No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...

Not having done this before it was a bit of a challenge to do I hope the joint is tight enough after the glue is in the joints and its clamped up. This is just the dry fit for now.In the two photos below are the left and right front legs. Today my 1/4” down cut spiral bit came so I will be routing the holes for the back slats then next week when my new band saw blade gets here I will cut the seat profile, sand and scoop the seat then comes the front legs.One thing I realized is you ...

Making a violin....maybe #1: The begining. A hair brained idea at attempting something kinda crrazy.

12-11-2012 12:59 PM by Ted78 | 16 comments »

Violin construction has always intrigued me and I got a bug in my bonnet about 10 years ago to make a violin. No, I haven’t actually made one yet. Just a lot of false starts. I have carved a couple of tops and backs. first top I made I modelled (unwittingly) from a 3/4 size violin, I carved a back out of maple. I’d read somewhere that’s what the backs and ‘ribs’ the sides are made of. Turns out they are made of soft maple and I used hard maple. I made myse...

Are a couple 3/4” x 6” x 120-1/2” planks of pine. Took the cleaned up 2×4 x36” out of the vise, cleared the benchtop of the rest. Placed the Gray 2×4 x 48” in the vise to joint both edges. Will do the rest of it after it is cut down to le...
