535 days ago by Lane | 2 comments »

Picked up a rip saw blade at a local antique store for $5.00. 5 ppi, and in good shape. Only one broken tooth, but it’s right at the heel so it won’t be an issue Decided to make a D8-ish handle out of some pecan stock…liked how the light wood contrasted with the dark blade. Here it is after a test fit with the rough handle.

A little while back I had a Pecan tree delivered to me by a local tree service. Well I took two of the 4 logs to the mill and had them cut into 4/4 stock. the other trees I will have some 8/4 stock cut out of them. I took you guys on a field trip to the mill with me… here are both videos of the milling process. If you never considered having lumber milled for you, it is something you should look into…It is a fun process and a great way to save money…

More Pecan Wood To Slab up

1007 days ago by cdbridge39 | 2 comments »

We Have a lot of storm damaged pecan trees here in the south. All you have to do is ask and its yours. Well you still got to cut it and load it but its free. Two trailer loads is about all my back can stand at one time. I have a small chainsaw mill that fits on my bar and I slab out chunks of wood. It’s also called a beam maker but you can cut any size slab you want to. All you have to do is move the board that the mill runs on over and screw it down. You also have to sharpen your chain...

Wood gloat

1013 days ago by joey bealis | 1 comment »

I have a wood gloat. A neighbor of mine is going to build a new house in town and purchased a piece property that had a bunch of pecan trees on it. He ended up needing 4 of them cut down and i was able to get what i wanted from the trees before people came and got firewood. So i now have enough pecan to turn bowls for a few years. If anyone is in the central Mississippi area and would like some give me a post. There are a few more logs not in the pictures!

Workbench #8: Installing the end vise

1355 days ago by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

Well work picked up for a while so I haven’t had time to post any progress till now. In this post I will show what I had to do to get the Veritas Twin-Screw vise mounted. I originally was planning on using the Lie-Nielsen Twin-Screw vise but had to change when I realized the dog holes would interfere with the chain. The biggest issue with the change was that the instructions for the Veritas vise said you needed to have 1-1/2” of clearance from the bottom of the top for the receive...
