How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Design of a Static Table Saw

10-12-2009 11:46 PM by k1114n | 5 comments »

The aim of this project is to design and build a static-blade saw that replaces the rotating blade with a japanese handsaw blade which is very thin and removes little wood during the cut leaving a very thin ‘kerf’ (< 0.5mm). Japanese handsaws are well known to cut aggressively and unlike european saws they do so on the pull stroke. Also, the blades in japanese handsaws are designed to be easily removed from the handle. If this blade were fixed at a slight slope away from the in...

It has been a while but I finally finished the living room.The last of the trim has been installed. The baseboard proved to be more challenging than I had hoped for.The house over the last 100+ years has settled so every bit had to be scribed and planed to fit. There are still pieces to build for the room but at least it is finished. I plan on adding a period correct light to finish it off. thanks for looking. Greg Here is the finished product finally…....................

Great Deal On Wood

10-03-2009 12:36 AM by Innovator | 13 comments »

I went to Home Depot today for a few things for a Honey Do project. While I was there I was in the lumber aisle and there was a truck of wood piled up (more like thrown on) with orange paint on the ends. I asked an associate how much is each piece and he said they only sell it by the skid (some HD will sell it by the piece). Ok so I asked “How much for the skid”, he said $1.01 per piece. Ok so I am interested how much for the skid then. He went over to it and bent down and started to cou...

My Hidden Treasure Find

10-02-2009 02:44 AM by makingitmine | 4 comments »

I bought an Old oldold dresser/chest for $300.We sanded and discovered after research and tons of comparisons that I have an old chest or drawers made of “wormy” chestnut! Which I believe to be unique from what i have researched. The dresser is not made with screws, nails and or any modern methods of “nailing”. It is old fashioned tongue and grove, wooden “nails” or pegs and very old skeleten key locks for each drawer. It also has a “hidden”...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...
