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...

My Radial Arm Saw- Not just a cross cut saw

09-01-2010 11:00 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Ever since I bought my first house a few years ago I had always wanted a nice sized workshop in my 2 stall garage. This year I was able to really get going on it. My dad who is also a woodworker was kind enough to give me his Radial Arm Saw which he no longer used. It so happens this RAS is also the first big power tool I had ever used. I grew up watching my dad use this thing on a regular basis and when I got old enough he showed me how to use it and let me make some cuts. So in a way the sa...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #5: Got the Ceiling Connection on the Hinge Side Completed

11-10-2014 02:06 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...

Commisions #11: pull out trash box #6 done (sort of)

08-26-2008 04:28 AM by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

well here is the final post in my pull out trash box thing series. figure i’ll get right into it. first i started by adding some 45 blocks to the place where the trash can sits. i had to notch it because that drilling would have been pretty hard without a drill press. i notched it a bit to much though. and i used brass screws. why? because they were the only ones that were short enough to not go through my surface. but to sound smart just in-case someone missed the bucket its good th...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

Lamps for the living room #1: Decent Start

03-22-2013 01:27 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I have been building some lamps for the Living room. I discovered an issue. My small miter saw used to be as accurate as anything else I could manage. I didn’t realize that the fence had warped until I started assembling. My 45 angles wer more like 45.75. It threw a wrench in things and gave me a little firewood but I recovered most of the cuts. I’m ready to move on. I was able to straigten the fence on the small saw but now I’m marking my cuts and disregardng the presets...
