Wood ID - Also, what is going on with it? - 27 replies

Hello all. I was wondering if anyone had any insight to what this wood might be. It was sold to me as walnut by a sawyer that was going out of business who really didn’t mind what he threw into the back of my truck for $200 (which included giant 20/4 and 14/4 slabs). So what say you, walnut? Typical comparison of the two stacks he ga...

How does one go about this.. - 10 replies

I’m sure we’ve all run across old furniture (dressers, for instance) that is most likely veneered where scratches, dings, and wear have left lighter spots. What exactly do furniture makers use to finish these pieces.. and how would one go about restoring it?

Comment Anchor URL - 6 replies

Specifically for Martin- LinksI know this might break a good many things, but it makes sense (in my mind): (where the 386164 is a reference to the comment id) have it be ’/topics/27378#reply-44’, where the 44 is relative to the topic. Perhaps a different anchor prefix, l...

Bed Rails - 5 replies

‘Evening LJs I’m in the stages of planning a platform-ish type bed and was wondering if you knew of a recommended rail size for a california king bed (rails would be 84” long) I just bought a 7/4 slab of s2s walnut that’s 110” long and 18” wide. A 6” rail would give me about 10.5 square inches for ...

Spalted Maple question - 4 replies

Last week, I had a piece of spalted maple that I took to work to show a coworker.. It was a very nice slab that looks like a spalted burl, as the grain looks like cinnamon on toast. Unfortunately, I left it in my truck overnight and we had a freak rain shower out of nowhere and the top of the slab was soaked. I brought it in to the house to d...

Opinions regarding finishing process - 5 replies

So I’ve been making these boxes for my boss for PV’s (personal vaporizers).. Imagine e-cigs that look like mini light sabers and you get the idea.. They’re constructed from a solid piece of 6”x4”x2” mahogany, split down the middle and then 1 1/4” holes hogged down through the sides (to hold the PV). Then...

"Free or Equal", A look back at Milton Friedman - 7 replies

I don’t know if anyone has seen the special that was on PBS last night, “Free or Equal”, but it seems especially appropriate in light of the OWS movements that have been going on around the world. Last night was really the first time that I’ve heard more than anecdotes about the man or his name mentioned alongside people ...

Wood ID - 16 replies

I hate to be “that guy”, but I have some wood and I can’t ID it for the life of me. I’ll start with the first two pics. I got both of these pieces (and similar ones, as well as boxes of 12/4 mahogany cutoffs) from the same garage. A man was selling off his father’s old stuff. I’m guessing they’re a ro...
