All American

06-10-2011 08:49 PM by Transition | 5 comments »

I have decide to turn only reclaimed, American woods. I’m doing this for several reasons:1) There are trees that we pass, and largely ignore, everyday. Turning this wood gives me a chance to reintroduce myself and others to to this amazing world. I love the outdoors, and I go hiking, exploring, and “wood hunting” with my son quite often. I want to be able to point to a tree and tell him what it is. But as I’ve started trying to identify the species of wood that I&...

Just for Fun... #49: Ever Forward...

06-07-2011 11:33 PM by littlecope | 14 comments »

If you recall, I left off in the last episode with two panels cut to size for the latest box…The plan is to make simple raised panels out of these with the table saw. At first, I was thinking of trying this a different way, involving a sliding board, with the pieces seriously clamped to it… but I didn’t have the right board handy, and was too lazy to knock together an elaborate jig…So I went with the way I’ve been doing it, with the “Tall” fence and a...

Inspiration.

06-07-2011 09:35 AM by degoose | 14 comments »

You have met Col and Ken, but the most talented bloke I know in the area is my good mate Kev from FatBoy Furniture… I ran into Kev at the local inspirational centre… 1st Choice bottle-o…. where we were looking for inspiration to take home. He makes the most fantastic solid outdoor furniture… makes it from Iron Bark… very hard timber but today he had a few lazy susans in the boot of his car and offered to show me… I jumped at a chance to see more of h...

Just for Fun... #48: Of Box Panels and Getting Sidetracked...

06-03-2011 04:18 AM by littlecope | 12 comments »

Today I had some spare time and managed to get a little bit of work done on the next part of my latest box, the raised panels…If you recall, I had procured a couple of Oak drawer sides from my folk’s house, and given them a quick, rough sanding…Next was to size them… I first squared them on one side, clamped up the box sides, then took a size from them for the width… It was then a simple matter, to transfer the size to the saw… and cut them to width… ...

Alabama Tornado Logs

05-30-2011 04:05 PM by Built2Last | 3 comments »

A month or so before the tornado’s hit Alabama on April 27th I had built a log loader that I could put in my 20’ utility trailer. I never dreamed it would get so much use. After the storms hit I posted an ad on Craig’s List offering to remove logs from yards for no charge. It’s been a month now and it will take another month or so just finish the two places I’m working on now. The picture of the loaded trailer is of about 500 board feet of white oak ...

Fixing a design flaw for about 10$

05-26-2011 05:09 PM by Woodwrecker | 13 comments »

Hello everyone. I’ve noticed that a lot of you have a DW735 thickness planer like I do.I use the heck out of mine and it is a great machine. But, there was a design flaw in my opinion that needed to be addressed. The dust port is placed above the middle of the out-feed table, and the dust collector hose has to be tied back or hung up to keep it out of the way, unless you are blessed with a permanent attachment.I hung it or tied it for a long time until I came up with this solution.Wi...

Helpful & easy to make Clamping Cauls.

05-24-2011 05:59 AM by Woodwrecker | 11 comments »

Since 95% of my stock is recycled pieces of shipping crates, pallets, or cut offs donated from a now closed cabinet shop, I have to do a LOT of glue ups.I have plenty of wood, just not in “ready to build” sizes. This is about 1/4th of my supply. I keep the rest spread out at Grandma’s, my brother’s and everywhere else there is a little room. lol So to do any projects, glue ups have to be fast, easy and as simple as possible.I’ve made a set of clamping caul...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #3: Finishing

05-24-2011 05:52 AM by superstretch | 3 comments »

Spoiler alert: Its done! Got the piece all clamped up and brought it in during a chilly stretch of weather Bottom of the piece after a nice soak in med walnut Danish oil and a few coats of wipe on poly Teensy bit of a gap, but it closes up depending on temp/humidity. The oak looks kind of trashy in this pic compared to the pretty walnut :) Another shot of the bottom, but a different direction. Notice rays appear much darker.. From the top All finished, but the lens on my pho...
