Armed with the requisite cut list of pieces I finally found a free weekend to start doing some assembly. Here in North Carolina we have had a record amount of rainfall in the past 3 months or so and my basement which is really a glorified sump pit hasn’t been the driest place in the state. As I started hauling the lumber back up to the car port I noted quite a bit of it was twisting and skewing. I think maybe pine lumber still grows after having been felled because I found out shortly s...

It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...
I admit it. I am a wood hoarder. My garage has plenty of untapped talent in it. Tables, chairs, shelves, car ramps… Now just the time to do something with it all.One of my earliest gets was a brace that was rejected at the timberframe shop I worked for.I was able to locate a second one and decided it may hold up a vanity top one day.
