My Award for 2009 Lumberjocks Summer Challenge #1: MY CONTEST AWARD CERTIFICATE for 3rd PLACE CAME!

08-22-2009 06:40 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 20 comments »

It came in the mail the other day, so I contacted Terry Desilets of CUSTOM BRANDING IRONS. I decided to order a custom design, instead of the stock. Terry was very helpful in helping me design my brand. He’s seems like a very good person to do business with. I sent him my signature, & he made a couple of design layouts of for me to choose from. I chose the design I liked the best, & sent my order in. He said I should receive it in a couple of weeks. SO NO...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

the old, dull blade isn’t in the table saw anymore! now its a new shiny sharp freud blade!The old one wasn’t even for hardwood, it said mostly man made boards, including asbestos board, giving you an idea of its age. This is a new combo blade, and it works great!got home tried it and was amazed. It was on sale anyway.

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #1: Entry One--Learning Woodworking Skills

My high school age great nephew is staying with us for a week to learn some woodworking skills. I gave hime a list of possible projects and we ended up with this ditty box:We bought the plans from the website, partially so they could be part of the educational process. We began with a tour of the shop and a the standard safety talk. He’s taking things quite seriously. We’re going to make the box out of curly maple and cherry. We start out learning some of the basics of han...

Holier than thou, or the meek shall inherit the wood? #2: Days 2 and 3.

03-24-2008 04:14 AM by Bill Butler | 5 comments »

My shoptime allowance is spotty at best, however a couple of solid days in the last few weeks has allowed me the time to finish milling up all of the wood for my bookcase. Up until recently I hadn’t really had a design in mind for the first prototype of the bookcase to rise from the wood of the old church pew. It is now starting to take shape. It will have 4 shelves, 2 fixed and 2 adjustable. The shelves and the risers are milled to 11/16”. The planned finished dimensions of th...

I spent part of today, getting a few 1×4s ready to become aprons on the table. They had been sitting out in the van for over a month, freezing their knots off. Brought them in to the Dungeon shop to warm up awhile. laid them out on the clothes dryer, in fact One of the four short pieces is elsewhere. Actually, it was in a vise, getting a little trim work Oh boy, a board with…..Charactor! Those are cracks, not pencil marks. Took a hand plane for a spin on the f...

Logs to Lumber #1: The Black Mulberry log what started it all...

08-22-2013 10:44 PM by palaswood | 5 comments »

After reading Don W's post on his white oak find during a hunting trip, which while reading I truly felt taken along for the entire journey, I decided to post pics of my first foray into this world of wood. I brought home a black mulberry log from a large limb that has been down for 18 months at least, most likely much longer. I used a shopbuilt jig (thanks Izzy for the idea!) and my craftsman table saw to get a few tiny boards off it for a jewelry box for the girlfriend that hasn’t...

New Venture #1: "Do what you love, the Money will Follow."

05-15-2010 05:54 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

That is the title of a book I read awhile back. Basically it teaches that one should enjoy the work which is done. If you truly enjoy it, then the work isn’t as hard. My DW and I have decided to start making and selling cutting boards at craft shows. We’re dividing up the labor, I’m handling the crafting, she’ll handle the booth work. My plan is that this will be one aspect of working for ourselves to bring in more money , ther other being my photo studio work. Now ...
