Lumber, Milling and Forestry


Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

Albums

  1. Mid-1800s Heart Pine Beam Split & Resawn

    Here's something I was not smart enough to leave alone. A 300 lb beam. The charts sat it should weigh less, but it does not. About 6" x 12" x 84", covered with nails. The bottom was hand-tapered to fit a recess.
     
    This beam was part of Philadelphia's industrial activity, likely milled 1840-1870.
     
    Images will be added as the beam is ripped and split into manageable pieces, and as those pieces in time go from stock to being resawn into planks and such.

  2. Resawing Large Beam Into Usable Timber

    Here's a beam end of longleaf heartpine bigger than 7" x 12" 20". One big wedge along an existing crack was the first to be pulled away to the 10" table saw. The remainder was split with wedges then trued up. Some pieces were hand-planed and scraped to enhance grain. This was all cut on my aluminum-decked c.2002 Craftsman 3.0 HP TS.
