Holly tree down - 9 replies
My neighbor just lost an old holly tree due to some utility work. It has a fairly good sized trunk with a few burls on it (at least that is what they look like from the outside). I told him to try to save it as holly can be quite unique in color. I suggested setting aside longer pieces and sealing the ends with paint. I was not sure abo...

I am working on a project where I have no extra material. One thing I could not afford was any planer snipe. My pieces were only about 12” long and I was concerned about snipe ruining the piece. I usually can control snipe with longer pieces, but not always. I really did not want to have any risk with this part. Here is what I did: I cu...

Okay, I browsed through the posts for the last year – didn’t find a reference to this one. I would really like to be able to organize My Favorite Projects. I have only been here 52 days and I have collected 82 favorite projects. At that rate, I’m going to have 575 favorite projects in a year!! It would be neat to create cate...
