Wood IDs #15: African Blackwood and conservation

06-26-2009 03:12 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

I picked up another box of 20 exotic wood turning blanks from Rockler. It’s been on a big sale for a long while now, and I had free shipping going, too. I have an idea for possibly turning it into some saleable items, and running the numbers, it was a very good deal. One of the woods it includes, of which I have now 4 1.5”×1.5”×12” pieces is African Blackwood. The tree, – Dalbergia melanoxylon, found primarily in Tanzania and Mozambique, though native to, and ...

Roubo Workbench #9: Lumber Update

06-01-2010 03:23 PM by Eric | 4 comments »

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I would be making a visit to my church friend’s lumberyard. Here’s an update: This friend of mine is having her warehouse guy look for all the lumber I need from rejected timber. Now I’m not sure what causes something to be rejected. I suppose export-grade stuff would have to be pretty good, so maybe rejected wood is still okay. As long as the wood is straight and not rotten, it should work for a bench, right? Even pinholes would be oka...

Stump cutting #1: Prunus avium

04-28-2013 07:37 PM by Dominik Matus | 7 comments »

At the garden I dug old stump of Prunus avium. I was there for some years. Summer is here so I decided to divide it to half parts. My friend helped me with sawing by crosscut saw (little blunt). It was very hard work. But after some hours very beautiful timbers shows. I grinded it and soaked with water. You ca see it’s little stained by fungi.

Wood Gloat #9: Leopard Wood this time..

11-06-2009 03:40 AM by degoose | 22 comments »

A mate was cutting down a Leopard tree [Caesalpinia ferrea] and asked if I wanted the wood… I had to think about this for a while because I am running out of room lol..Leopard trees have mottled shiny bark that someone thought looked like a leopard’s skin. This a graceful tree that lines many suburban streets and parks. They are perfect as a screen against the hot western sun, the light filtering though the leaves, highlighting their delicate shading.......And for those who wo...

wildwoods #1: Stick of walnut I cut this morning

03-28-2011 12:02 AM by skeezaroonie | 11 comments »

Not being able to cut up local wildwoods has been a real missing piece of my woodworking puzzle. Just recently I found a nearby Bandsawmill and now I’m like a kid at Christmas cadging local woods from my local area and having them sawn. All of the wood I have found and cut is deadfall and windfall. This includes a 30” diameter 6 foot section of Pecan from a neighbors field. The tree was blown over last spring and I cut the upper parts for my wood stove and barbecue smoker. Wh...

Building a Goat Barn #3: Preparing the Timbers and Digging the Site Out

07-30-2014 06:04 PM by David Bareford | 1 comment »

By the time of the first snowfall in December (again, I’m writing this months after the fact), I had collected enough timber for all of my posts and beams (with a few extras just in case) and about half of my rafters. With the help of Eleanor, my oldest daughter (she’s 9), I drawknifed the bark off the logs and stacked and stickered them for drying over the winter and spring. By April they had lost considerable amounts of water weight, but many of them showed some considerable ...
