Crotch Walnut Slabs - All Sizes and Shapes

03-15-2015 03:02 PM by dcg4403 | 0 comments »

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...

Making walnut slabs with a saw mill - Wood mizer LT40-HD

02-28-2015 01:01 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

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’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...

On the Mill #5: Urban Forestry

04-02-2014 10:51 PM by ScottShaeffer | 10 comments »

“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...

Cut down a 50’ ponderosa pine in the spring, today was the day my #2 son helped me load up the 9’ trunk for a short trip to a nearby buddy with a Wood-Mizer. 1” boards for the whole thing. 90bf, cost me a thirty pack of beer… Oh, and he had this pile of cherry… 330bf… headed for Houston TX. Beautiful! ===== ===== ====== ===== ===== ===== ===== ==== I brought my modest pile of pine back to the shop, where it’s now...

trip to my favorite sawmill

08-22-2013 01:24 PM by MattNC | 2 comments »

Here are older pics from a trip to my favorite sawmill around raleigh, which is Charles Hollands place near jordan lake. The slab leaning against the trailer magically made its way home even though I had no idea what to do with it. Its around 9’ long and was from the center of the crotch of a walnut tree and its 2” thick. The stack of logs are cherry, and the stacks of lumber are walnut.
