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...

Simple Machine Shop Upgrade - Self-storing Power and Dust Collection

11-08-2016 01:02 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

I love my shop. The power tools, the hand tools, the padded luthier workbench, and the integrated dust collection. Especially the dust collection. One point of frustration however, is the relatively limited storage space. And so I’ve had to find spaces in every crevice and corner, and install shelving and hooks around the wood-paneled walls. A particularly frustrating problem was the lack of convenient power and dust collection on my main workbench/tablesaw outfeed table. The rout...

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...

Shop Tips & Tricks #19: The Art of Middles of Symmetries

11-20-2016 03:12 PM by GnarlyErik | 3 comments »

I don’t know why I did not think to include this as a part of my blog about centerlines since it is very closely related. I will call this notion ‘The Art of Middles of Symmetries’. ┬áSimply put, all symmetrical shapes by definition have a ‘middle’, or centerline. Stating that notion as a corollary to centerlines, you might say: “All symmetrical shapes have an EXACT middle centerline.” Take advantage of this simple fact by using it when laying out ...
