Milling a black walnut tree! Advise wanted

01-20-2011 04:21 AM by Firewood20 | 8 comments »

I have recently come accross a black walnut tree that will be dropped in the next couple weeks. It is 19” diameter and 30ft tall. I have a big enough chainsaw and chainsaw mill jig attachment but this is the first time ever attempting milling “green” wood. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas of what to do with it after I have it cut down to rough cut lengths and thicknesses? Also what about drying it out if it needs it? or ? Will it affect any future projects ie: cabinetry, sh...

Kamagong (Ebony) jewelry box

01-18-2011 12:11 PM by Bill Davis | 11 comments »

Doing some resawing. The basic box. About a week ago my dentist, Bam, said he had a piece of old Kamagong for me. Well that made the pain in the dentist chair more tolerable (actually it was only a routine cleaning). It was a pretty scrungy looking board about 30” x 18” with nail holes (including a couple of nails) and a fair share of splits. I could see some nice grain buried in there though it would have to be brought out where it was more obvious. Also someone had ‘...

Making a Violin #5: Carving the plates

01-16-2011 08:21 AM by RonPeters | 20 comments »

Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....

Thickness Planer or Drum Sander #1: Would you do this?

01-09-2011 05:23 AM by sandhill | 11 comments »

First: I have a 20” 900 pound Grizzly thickness planer that has been taking up a lot of room in my shop, I do use it but I was thinking of selling it and freeing up some space. I have a 22/44 Jet Drum sander that would do the same job using 60 or 80 grit paper, Second: If I do sell it I would get a 13” Dewalt planer that could be moved around much easier and stored under a bench. So what I was wondering is how many people would take this step? I’m conflicted about it but I ...

Quick Progress, Big Setback, Moving Foward...after a break

01-05-2011 04:06 AM by spunwood | 5 comments »

Clamping a cutting board row by row. Two blocks align it along with a vertical clamp. A deadblow mallet levels it. Stephanie came up with this method. I put packing tape on the alignment blocks and on the board they are sitting on to keep them from sticking. Clamping the rows together. After the disaster, back home, having discovered what can be saved. You can see some of the planer gouges. I have been working on an end grain cutting board. I hope to join the ranks soon of the cu...

Building My Work Shop #10: Slotted T Crank Handle for Powermatic Belsaw 12" Molder Planer Drum Sander

12-24-2010 10:21 PM by Crushgroovin | 3 comments »

I am almost done refurbishing my MONSTER 5 HP Powermatic Molder/Planer/Drum Sander. Of all the things to be missing I can’t find the seemingly simplest item. The slotted “T’ crank handle for adjusting the cut thickness. Basically a 5/8” socket with a 1/4” slot through the sides connected to a crank handle. Now I could just take a 5/8” socket and grind a slot in it but that is super chintzy for what is an amazing piece of American built quality product. I ha...

Wow, I guess I forgot this site was here. How did that happen? Probably because I’ve been exploring SO MANY different woodworking sites that I have too many now to look at. Wow, you can learn soooo much on the net these days about any topic you want, including woodworking. There literally doesn’t seem to be a limit to what you can read about online… though, I’m starting to discover that some of the stuff that costs money is the stuff I really want to see (books, ...
