Salvaged lumber table top #1: Found lumber in the woods

09-27-2018 08:19 PM by RBurke83 | 5 comments »

So I bought a house about a year ago and while walking around the property I found this fairly large piece of lumber that was partially sunken into the forest floor. After more inspection I decided to remove it today with the goal of a massively thick three slab dining room table top. The board is, after cutting off about 18” that was damaged at the end, 21’3/4” long, 14.5” wide, and 4.5” thick. After I determined it wasn’t cedar (I sometimes build kayaks), i cu...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...

Project Build #1: Barn Door Console with Plans

07-20-2018 05:30 PM by TimberAndAshDesigns | 0 comments »

With the Farmhouse fad and the number of DIYers at its peak I found myself in a unique situation of serving multiple clients while only building one piece of furniture. I rarely build the same item twice so having a detailed sketch or plan is not the norm in my shop. Usually I will have several sketches, sometimes rough CAD style drawings but never a full blueprint of what I will be building. For this project I decided to take the design aspect one step further and create reproducible plan...

Bath Stool #8: Rounding and learning

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by Diego Cassels | 4 comments »

Tusk through tenon!! The name is common but its the first for me. I scratch a line to have a reference to drill, then squared it with a chisel. The key was made with the same wood, “quebracho colorado”. Hard to fit but the en result looked good to me! Then I ronded the seat corners with a router and lots of sanding. LOTS!!! I had to do a dry test, the photos don`t do it justice! Here you have a closeup of the tusked tenon. Well a touch there and another over t...

Garden Planter Box

05-02-2018 11:02 PM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I made this planter box for my wife’s front porch vegetable garden. It was pretty simple to make using pocket holes and gluing in some reinforcement boards to hopefully add some extra support. I hope you like the video. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lw5L1LjPQlc

Recovering wood from discarded pallets

04-10-2018 07:56 PM by DaveFFMedic | 6 comments »

LOML asked me to make a pallet wood accent wall in our kitchen. I set to task of recovering boards from discarded pallets. I searched around and didn’t find any definitive information on the best way to disassemble the pallets. I did some trial and error and found the quickest way for me to disassemble them. In the following video, I show how I took apart the pallets in about 2 hours time. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/ZEX7xrofNHg

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #3: Slow, very slow progress

04-03-2018 04:45 PM by PoohBaah | 7 comments »

Well, it has been 6 months since the last update and well not much has changed. Between fall harvest, winter and now calving season coming early there was not much progress on the old barn but we are starting to gain some momentum now. I have been in contact with a local guy that is going to put the new roof on for me. I was in Menards on Saturday to pick up supplies for a new set of back steps and while loading the lumber I noticed they had 45 sheets of 12’ white steel in the discount ...

Dust Collector Shed #3: Siding done

02-09-2018 03:05 PM by FrogHouse | 0 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks. The new semester is in session and I am knee deep in assignments. (Just an FYI I am a 50 year-old student, working on getting that degree I should have gotten 30 years ago.) The good news is that I was able to finish the siding on the shed before the stuff got too deep in school. I have a couple of minutes and thought I’d share the progress. When last I posted, I completed the siding for the door. I used some cedar trim I had hanging around from an earlier project. T...

Dust Collector Shed #2: We have a door!

01-17-2018 02:25 PM by FrogHouse | 3 comments »

Wow. People actually read my first blog post. Not sure I was expecting that. Thanks to all that read it and a special thanks for those that commented. Before we continue, here are a few photos of it in progress. When we last left the shed (and when I say ‘we’ I mean ‘me’), the shingles were up the OSB in place and three walls were wrapped in Tyvek. The next thing needed was a door! I purposely covered the entrance when I put up the OSB. I built the door structure and installed it on th...
