So I have been bit by the woodworking bug. The evolution to the point where this blog comes in has taken a relatively short time. I have always wanted a shop for my various handy-man tools and such but back in March of 2015 around the birth time of my 3rd daughter I got sucked into woodworking. I cannot really explain how it started as I believe the desire had always been there just had never reached the combustion point. My wife and I decided we would save our $$ over the summer while wo...
This is part 1 of 2 in this first video I show the process of cutting a sawmill in half then bolting it back together to be able to cut at stock width of 28’’ then be able to extend to give a full width cut of 46’‘ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xws0u1ft_Qc

Hey Folks, Just wanted to let any fellow woodworkers know that we’ve been focused on buying and cutting crotch sections of walnut & finally have them coming out of the kiln every 3-4 months. We have about 150 slabs in our Wimberley, TX located between Austin and San Marcos, TX. Part of what we offer is a focus on bookmatch sets although we certainly have a lot of singles. These sections of slabs are typically 18”-24” wide. We cut everything at 10/4. Lengt...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7q1lboLLjAQ In this video I’m making lumber from some Canadian Black Walnut logs on a 1992 wood-mizer LT-40HD. I’m flitch sawing the logs keeping the live edge on. Which is not only good for table tops, I get extra lumber that I can use for my chairs because of the curves of the legs, fit the curve of the boards. As always thanks for watching!
I’m putting together a video series for Norwood Sawmills that’s all about wood – from tree to finished product. I’ll look at logging (from several perspectives), milling (from several perspectives), lumber treatment, and woodworking (from several perspectives). I’m very excited to have the honor of producing this series and I hope I can do all of my fellow craftsmen proud. This link will take you to the second teaser on YouTube. After the video is over, it will a...
“Urban Forestry” is the care of trees growing in or around a city. Most of these trees (millions of them) were planted by humans (land developers, landscapers, individuals, governments, etc.) so there are a huge variety of species that wouldn’t otherwise grow there. In the Denver Metro Area, there are hundreds of thousands of Black Walnut trees for example. Walnut is not a native tree and really doesn’t belong here, but put them all together, and we’ve go...
