This will be a bed. (I hope!) #1: Rough cutting / oops I don't have enough wood!

816 days ago by LucasinBC | 3 comments »

My wife and I are expecting a new baby shortly, so our youngest child will be abandoning his toddler’s bed for a “big boy” bed. It’s only a twin mattress – but it’s pretty massive for a four year old. And quite the step up from his toddler’s bed. I’ve been slowly getting into woodworking for the past two years. Mostly I have been preparing myself for a project such as this; the majority of my builds have been jigs, a workbench, cutting gui...

Here are a couple of overview pictures to give you a taste: Ben Barrett is here representing Berkshire Veneer, and is a really nice guy. I’ll definitely be calling him...

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...

1365 days ago by Eli | 23 comments »

Hey, everybody! I wanted to give you an update on the new show. We’ve been working ridiculously hard all summer and we’re just over half-way through filming this first season. The show will be airing on Public Television starting this October (check your local listings ;) ). GBH has put together the promotional “sizzle reel” (that’s an industry term…I think) to get everyone excited; I hope it works. It was cool for us to see, because it looks like a...
