Red Cedar Flower in Progress #2 #1: Red Cedar Flower in progress #2

691 days ago by Bearpie | 4 comments »

I’m back to show the tools I used in creating this wooden flower. The tools displayed are the only ones used so far in the project other than my trusty chainsaw used to cut this wood to a manageable size. I did more wood removal today and will have to be very careful from here on out because I could easily ruin this piece by going through the walls which I do not want to do. It is somewhat bulky and fairly difficult to hold down so I can work on various areas. I made a makeshift ...

Red Cedar Flower in progress #1 #1: Red Cedar Flower in progress #1

692 days ago by Bearpie | 10 comments »

I have long admired people who took large pieces of wood like drift woods, stumps and such and turned it into beautiful works of art. So when I saw them cutting down this piece of Red Cedar tree stump about 5 ft tall and 2 ft in diameter, I had my chance to do something like this. I had to have it but the problem was that it was a 5 ft piece and I had no way to lift it. So I went home and got my trusty chainsaw and cut a piece off 18” long. Even at that length I was barely able to get i...

Milling Cherry Logs #1: Milling/Drying a 8' Cherry Log and Some Red Cedar Slabs October 2010

1279 days ago by Matt Pec | 1 comment »

I’ve heard pro and con about drying boards and slabs vertically when they’re fresh cut. It makes sense that they might dry faster this way but does anyone have firsthand experience with this? I cut some 8’ long, 2” thick Cherry slabs and some 2” thick Red Cedar slabs and don’t want to wait 1yr + for them to finish drying. Any ideas? Thanks!

1374 days ago by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

In response to the many requests for information about how I do the routing on the signs, I will give a step by step below.When I get an order request the first thing I do is pick out or make a sign blank in the approximate size the customer requested, then I go to my computer. I have a program on on my computer that will print out banners, I use Print Shop. I can choose many styles of lettering and adjust the letters to any size that I need to fit on my board. When I get everything how I th...
