396 days ago by debianlinux | 3 comments »

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 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. Those sticks on top were cut out of 8x timbers as a screen channel. Those are 1×2ish at varying lengths. Probably my most prized are these cut ...
