006: pallet wood cutting board #2: cuts and glue-ups

03-30-2010 11:02 AM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I’ve renamed my 5 preexisting project series from “project: whatever” to “00n: whatever” where n is the number of the set of posts in order. E.g. instead of “project: a rolling base for my planer,” that was the second project series I made, so now it’s “002: a rolling base for my planer.” The projects were starting to scatter in my series list, and I’d have a few series listed at the top in the drop-down for new posts, then an ...

Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

03-30-2010 05:49 AM by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...

found wood #16: Cora's Mexican restaurant wood

03-28-2010 07:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 17 comments »

Cora’s, a local Mexican restaurant went out of business recently. On my way back from the bearing shop with the new bits for my planer this past week I noticed a crew tearing the insides out. I stopped in and asked if I could look through their scrap pile for free wood, and as happens pretty much always here in west LA, they looked at me, shrugged their shoulders, and said “sure.” There’s wasn’t much, and nothing great, but the wood looked old, and I t...

I Built a Monster (w/pics)

03-26-2010 05:27 AM by davidroberts | 7 comments »

Another cross cut sled, big woopee. While not my intention, this cross-cut sled is too big, too heavy, but is square to a gnat’s behind and can handle 20” wide board. Rather than tell you how great it is, I’m going to tell you the problems I had and what I would do differently. But first, thanks to Alaska Jim for PMing me to get off my duff and finish the durn thing. This behemoth being exactly the dimensions of my Grizzly cabinet saw top – 48” wide by ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #69: My Zone of Wood Art

03-23-2010 08:35 AM by frank | 8 comments »

My Zone of Wood Art ….art is the interpretation of what is before you, and therefore needs no-out-side influence to make it more then it is in this moment. The problem that many have with art is that it is all-ways regulated to some other plane of our existence, out-side the time-work of where we are now. Because the many see art as so ‘other’, these many lost souls to the world of art, will in-deed all-ways be seeking for art as if it is some-thing that is found in the so ...

Reclaimed Oak Barn Wood

03-21-2010 05:25 AM by michaelray | 2 comments »

I’ve been busy trying to gather up some oak barn wood that was given to me by a local farmer. More on the back story of how I came across it is in this post. I was able to get a couple of pictures before unloading the truck. I’ve posted them here. One of my hopes for the wood is to be able to build a Morris Chair sometime in the future.

Guitars - Classroom project #1: Shop assembly

03-19-2010 06:36 PM by unisaw2 | 8 comments »

I have volunteered to help the kids make their own guitars in class. The children are 9-10 year olds, and they are learning about sound. We want them to assemble/make as much as possible. The goal is to make a 4 string guitar that can be tuned. Notes will be A-D-G-B. The basic design is a 4 string neck, sauna tube body, and 1/8”mdf sound board. We are using real guitar tuners and strings, but everything else is going to be made in the shop, or in class. Need to make a total o...

Shop Stuff. #7: Wood Gloat

03-11-2010 04:30 AM by rsmith71 | 7 comments »

Just had to add my own free wood gloat. Last fall a friend of a friend decided to clean out his workshop. My friend called me and asked if I was interested. I couldn’t get there fast enough. We loaded up in my truck and hit the road. Let me say first I thought I might get 2 or 3 boards out of this trip but decided what the heck. We get there and talk to the guy and he’s decided he doesn’t have the room for everything he had and we started loading my truck up. And kept loadin...

Candle Holder

03-07-2010 11:01 PM by berkleydanny | 4 comments »

Right now, i am in the process of making a candle holder for my wife. I am using some scrap oak for the legs, and quite possibly some maple for the tops and sides. I have gotten the legs cut and sanded, but need to get the material for the tops and sides. I will post pictures as soon as I finish cutiing the rest of it out and get it assembled. Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...
