sawing logs with a chainsaw\alaskian sawmill - 19 replies
I have gotten excellent replies on my question of logs and board feet. I had asked about having them sawn om a bandmill. I estimated it out and to get the logs cut I can actually buy it already cut cheaper if I luck out. Anyway I am thinking the few logs I have, 13 so far ranging from 10 to 18 inches in width.

I have about 13 oak logs as of now, quite a few of them are at least 70 inches around. From the log to board feet conversion I have well over 11,000 board feet of lumber. I...

Does anyone remember this laptop desk? - 3 replies

"new" scroll saw - 8 replies
I just got through rebuilding my “new” scroll saw. I had one of the Dremel small scroll saws that was not as heavy duty as I wanted. I found a old Delta 440 scroll saw I reworked. It had quite a few parts missing and some parts that were made for it by the PO was far from useable. I had to grind down one of the blade bolt holders and...
