Meet Jack... the stripper #1: Meet Jack... the stripper

1760 days ago by RedWoodzard | 13 comments »

Hi thanks for stopping by. I am currently in the process of learning wood working, and before I jumped right into it I wanted to take my time to go and learn how the old school guys did things before my time. Sure you can go out and buy one of them fancy planers or jointers, and complete a job a little faster, but doing things that way there is no learning involved. Once you have put the wood thru the planer and it comes out the other side, thats it buddy, your on to the next step of what...

How to find great figure wood other than Burl

1771 days ago by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

tragedies #3: Craftsman 13" planer woes

1771 days ago by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I’ve been so fantastically lazy these past 3 weeks of pseudo-laid-off time. I wanted to use this unexpected break to go nuts in the garage, as it’s what I’ve dreamed of for more than a year now, but I think the anticipation of hard times ahead, and light anxiety of not having a steady income at the moment (first time in 6 years – since shortly after moving to CA) has sapped my motivation almost entirely. I’ve done almost nothing but wait. I’ve had some thin...

I know this isn’t the best deal some of you lumberjocks have gotten on this planer but I’m happy with it. Oh and I went to Costco to buy a shed for our trashcans and I found this and had to buy it. Bothus

20 Steps to a Checker Board... a beginners guide

1778 days ago by Demowen | 7 comments »

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...

Getting started

1779 days ago by Tim Dahn | 5 comments »

I have been searching around the internet for a wall clock that I like, I have been able to find clocks that have some design features I like but not one that reached out and grabbed me. This one from Klockit came the closest, I don’t care for the choice of wood or the finish but I can change these things. There aren’t any plans as the clock is only available in kit form. The Klockit website shows a finished Size: 13 1/4”H x 13 1/2”W x 5 1/2”D, I’m thinking these dime...

A cabinetmaker's workbench (in pine) #1: Planing and glueup of flitches

1781 days ago by TravisCorcoran | 2 comments »

Ordered (5) 18′ long 2×12s. Cut them to half length, yielding (10) 9′ long 2×12s. Ripped each into three equal pieces, yielding (30) 9′ 2×4s. Planed the faces of each, reducing thickness to 1 3/8″. Picked 24 good ones, divided into 4 groups of 6. Started gluing up the four flitches (each will be 8 1/4″ wide x 3 1/2″ thick). Each will be allowed to cure for 24 hours, then will be run through the planer. Then the four bench segments will be glued together. for about $100...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1782 days ago 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....
