Wood purchase options

01-09-2013 05:47 AM by CalgaryGeoff | 3 comments »

I’ve been wood working for a few years now and during that time have found enough wood to fill my shelves and bins to their capacity. I have a moderate hobby work shop in my garage with a bit of inventory. I estimate about 1800 bf of wood and 30 different species at present. I’ve purchased lumber from commercial stores specializing in wood working (very expensive) but sometimes you want or need what they have, over the Internet from a lumber wholesaler in Victoria BC (less expensi...

06-09-2013 02:06 PM by wooded | 3 comments »

Hey All. Just passing along an internet connection to cable news streaming that I listen to during time in my shop. It ran all day yesterday without interuption. It appears to have been around for at least a couple of years and I have used it for about 6 mo now with no problems. It is actual live CNN, fOX, or what ever flavor you prefer. Pretty cool, I think anyway. BaqiWorld.com. (once you get past that first commercial your good to go)I am retired and have absolutly no connection to...

Drying Burl Wood #2: Consideration #2 By OregonBurls

08-28-2012 04:00 PM by OregonBurls | 3 comments »

Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...

I am close to a finished workshop. I need some help for storage

04-15-2010 09:46 PM by sboyle | 3 comments »

Hello All, Over the last few years, I have been collecting all kinds of tools. I am moving my machine and boxes and boxes of hand tools and accesories. I am looking for a storage solution that would be wall mounted to hold all the hand tools and power tools. I was thinking of a wall hung cabinets to house my hand held power tools, and at least another to house my hand tools. I need to do this on the cheap side as I spent alot of money on the shop, but on the other hand I don’t want i...

I am curious what is the name of the tool used to lessen the vibration while turning spindles ( or long pieces ). Is there any good designs for a home made one?

Beall Polishing System #3: It does polish wood

01-04-2014 01:46 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I was talking about sanding mops and other things and only referenced that I’d polished things with it. On all these pieces my finishing regime is the same: 1. Sanded to 320 grit. I don’t have anything finer that I care to use on a piece that’s going to be polished, and I’ve found that 320 grit seems to be perfect for getting a smooth finish. (Side note: I’ve polished some unsanded surfaces. It doesn’t smooth them, but it will polish the high spots. )...

Woodwork Biz/Getting Started #6: Item 4 and 5 - Using Postcards

02-25-2011 01:43 AM by billb | 3 comments »

There are many more ways to create postcards now because of the computer and easy to use graphic software. Most inkjet printers will do a great job with postcards, and you can purchase blank cards inexpensively, the problem is the high cost of ink. I suggest making a few with your printer to get an idea of the per card cost. If it does work out too high, you can create an original and take it to a quick print shop to have a quantity of them made. You may be able to go to one of those self pri...
