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

Pole Barn Workshop 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...

Shop Notes #2: Beetle Kill Pine

01-06-2018 06:25 PM by Steve | 1 comment »

I finished up my year-end inventory yesterday after counting almost 180 different sticks of wood, from full-sized logs to tiny sticks of exotic scraps I can’t bear to burn. Counting meant cleaning and organizing, so I took advantage of the suddenly clutter-free benchtop and built up some cabinet doors for my new lathe stand. Out here in the Western U.S. there’s been an ongoing infestation of bark beetles in our softwood forests. I’ve seen areas where the dead trees we...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Christmas Gifts #3: Finished Toy Machine Shed! Christmas 2017

12-26-2017 09:44 PM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

Whew! We made it, just in the nick of time! 10 minutes to midnight on Christmas Eve we put the last touchup paint on it in preparation for the big day. Spoiler: The boy LOVED it! :-) Details: Roof and floor: 1/4” plywood Trim: 1/4” thick poplar that I sawed strips about the thickness of a popsicle stick with the bandsaw and glued on. Walls: 1/2” thick plywood. 5 tiny hinges for the roof, wish they were white, but too lazy and not enough time to paint them. ...

An Attempt to Replicate a Simple Tool Box

12-13-2017 03:46 AM by GLowz | 3 comments »

What I thought would be a simple little project has now turned out to be anything but simple. My thoughts were to reproduce an old tool box of mine and give it to my son as a gift. He always loved that old box, as did I, but since it has been in my possession he has only been able to view it from afar. At first glance I saw that it was thin with mitered corners, old hinges and a simple hook and eye latch. As I began to reconstruct the box I noticed that this wasn’t just handmade dove...
