Howdy, I have a lot more sanding to do and I’m filling the inside. The outside of the structure has been rough sanded and filled. I’m not real happy that I used filler at all but that’s how it goes when you are a rookie. What you might be able to see here is that I used poplar because it is very light weight for a lighting pendant. the outside is actually crosscut. If it comes out as well as I hope it will, I ought to get a nice look out of it. The insides are goin...
There has been a lot of discussion about the Harbor Freight SCMS saws. I recently purchased the HF Model #98194 miter saw thought I would share my experiences with it. I have desired a sliding compound miter saw for quite a while. But I just couldn’t see spending $500 – $600 for the high end saws. Harbor Freight has lower cost models of sliding miter saws for sale. I looked at the HF models in the store. I could have lived with a 10” model but the 10” model from HF ...
I have an older Porter Cable 12’ compound mitre saw, which I have gotten excellent service from and plan to keep. I am putting together a new workshop and would like to add a good 12’ sliding compund. I have seen good reviews on the Milwaukee but not much on the Jet. I don’t care much about the fancy electrical mitre guage or lights on the Milwaukee, as I tend not to be hard on equipment and don’t think they will benefit me or last. I can’t find much to read abou...

Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
Hey everyone, I have just redesigned Oregonburls.com would like to offer an artist page.

You are the best!!! I asked yesterday if you would go and check out my newly designed website and over 200 of you answered the call. So with that I say a big thank you!

As soon as I figure out a coupon code I will extend 10% off of your whole order exclusive to LJs. Another way you can help is when yo...

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve had any updates. I’ve been very busy. The cabs have been installed minus doors and drawer fronts. Toe kick and drawers are in, so the kitchen is now usable. Here’s a few picks of the some of the upper doors before finish. I’m actually in the process of finishing the doors as I type. Maybe in a week or so I can post some pics of the cabs on the down hill side.
