How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

Coffee table in progress

03-15-2011 12:12 AM by cwdance1 | 3 comments »

Finally got a couple of days of warm weather in my part of the country. My wife wanted a coffee table and three end tables. So the adventure starts, these will be the first real furniture that I have tried to make. After watching the Video by Charles Neil, I got inspired to get this project started. Went to the wood store and got some walnut for the legs. In the picture below you can see that I have the legs ruffed to size and my first mortises cut by hand. I made a test tennon and they c...

Birthday presents #1: The wood

03-12-2011 07:00 AM by Mike | 0 comments »

My last cutting board project was a lot of fun but it didn’t come out perfectly because I struggled to get my wood stock to a plane & uniform thickness. Well I’ve purchased a planer and it’s time to put it to the test! I picked up some walnut, curly maple, and ash today and they ranged from slightly under 1” thickness to about 1 1/8” thickness. I planed them down to 3/4” thickness and it came out great. So now I’m going to try to make 2 more cutti...

The Making of a Walnut Bowl/Tray

03-10-2011 08:10 PM by cranesgonewild | 28 comments »

I was visiting my parents over the Christmas holidays, when I noticed a plastic tray full of candy on the coffee table. My mom told me she got it from the dollar store. She also told me that she loves this bowl because of the divided trays.So, being the woodworker that I am. I decided that I was going to make one out of wood. Without anyone knowing, I took measurements. I do own the CMT bowl and tray bit, and it does come with a template for making this tray. However, the overall size of that...

Project 365 #4: days 63 & 64, camera phones eye view

03-06-2011 05:13 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

Pardon the sometimes slightly out of focus glimpse of these little, teeny tiny bowls coming to life. It probably has more to do with the coating of dust on my face shield than all them mega pixels crammed into my pocket. (Which out snaps my first TWO digital cameras.).. Anywho, our fellow lumberjock Karson sent me a lovely box-o-wood, and asked if I’d turn out a couple of cousins of this little beauty: We’d both figured these would come up as projects in my “next&#...

Stickley High Chest #5: Almost done

02-28-2011 09:04 PM by Greg | 6 comments »

This is the last entry in this series of blogs. My next post will be in the Projects post as the completed project. All that remains is sanding the top with lubricated 600 grit sand paper and installing some drawer stops. I did have a couple of set backs that I had to work through:1. The bottom drawer did not slide very well. The dovetailed drawer slide was binding when moving the drawer in and out. I had removed a little material from the part of the slide that attached to the dus...

Design And Build - Memorial Pet Urn #1: Working out a Design - Sketchup Renders

02-28-2011 03:34 AM by Brad_Nailor | 2 comments »

Recently, we lost a valued member of our family. Sam was a silver tiger cat, who was born on St. Patrick’s day, 1992….he was 19. So I was preparing to build a pet urn for his ashes to be kept in my wife reminded me that we still had ashes from our boxer Lucas, who had passed a few years ago. Since these two were buddies in life, and now that Sammy has gone to the great cat box in the sky I thought it would be nice to make matching urns for them. I looked online, and on here at som...

And the right side of the rifle. The customer finished the rifle and it’s ready to take to the shooting range. The second rifle stock the same customer finished was this pr...
