72 degrees in my head, All the time

03-10-2012 04:22 AM by danzaland | 1 comment »

Okay so it wasn’t 72 degrees, but it was close. Early March and a 60degree plus day in Rochester, NY, you want to be outside. SO I was. I squared up a round log.Video Log Overview I used my Logosol Timber Jig and a 2×6 rail I built (seen here). Close Up 1 Close Up 2 So now with my circular saw and a hand saw I plan on cutting this 8×8 down to 4×6’s and trying to make sawhorses. BTW: Can anyone name the movie this entry is quoting?

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...

movie on cutting a ipe hardwood log in a Bolivian mill with a 7" wide bandsaw

12-21-2012 10:22 PM by Harry Montana | 4 comments »

the principle is a wagon (brand Schiffer) which goes up and down on a rail and the bandsaw (brand Langer) is in a fixed position. For entire mill to operate like this you need 26 employees. Fully automatic mills are available but not recommendable because they get damaged and who is going to repair difficult electronics in the middle of the jungle in a country like Bolivia where there is no spare parts… operating bandsaw cutting ipe boards – 1 operating bandsaw cutting ipe boar...

Went down to one of my favourite wholesale timber merchants… I had heard that there was a new guy there…...

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 ...

11-06-2013 05:10 AM by jordanp | 8 comments »

The other day I was driving home and noticed a neighbor had cut back a tree and had some limbs at the curb. I see this fairy often and very rarely stop to grab anything in it’s raw state. I have a very limited space and have no means to resaw limbs into planks/boards. For some strange reason I stopped immediately, that tree looks different, I thought to myself, It didn’tLook like the other trees in my area… Hmmm I loaded up as much as I could fit into the back and head...
