  1. A friend of mine a year and a half ago was camping by this lake with his buddies. A big wind came up abruptly as they were standing around the fire trading great adventures. Suddenly a cedar tree blew over and pinned three of them to the ground. The others rushed to cut the out to rescue them. My friend was the only one seriously hurt. he had a broken right leg and a smashed ankle. To make the story short, after much surgery and therapy he was able to sort of walk and he fell again and re-broke his ankle. They re-did the surgery on his ankle and and it was healing fine and he had a stroke. He is only 53yo and had some brain damage along with some paralysis of his left side. While recuperating his buddies would come to visit and one day one of them brought him a piece of fire wood from the tree. He then later asked me to make him something from the block of wood for a remembrance of the experience. So here is what I made. Herb
  2. Hey folks, I have couple very heavy timbers. The one I planed a little bit to expose the color is about 24" long and 12"x12". It weighs about 80 lbs, very heavy. The timber on the floor is twice as long and twice as heavy. Very dense. The timbers are about 50 years old. I have been told what the original owner says it is, but without any influence, I wondered if you guys can tell me what species this is. Thanks for any help.

    Mequite Log Bench

  4. Is there anything I can do to keep wood from cracking? I was making a bird house. I had to stop and got tied up for a while. I went back out 2 or 3 days later and it had a huge crack. The first picture is when I was working on it and the second picture is after three days of just sitting on the lathe.

    Bowl blanks

    I watch a lot of turning videos on youtube. In one of Carl Jacobson videos he said he cuts the heart out of a log and paints the ends with basic paint and doesn't get any cracking. Since I got the new bandsaw I figured I would give it a try. I made a jig to hold the log and made some bowl blanks real fast and easy. They will turn a 9 inch to 10 inch bowl.
  6. I knew I wasn't loco! So folks do take a log and turn it into a vase!
  7. Every now and then something really cool gets posted to our Facebook page by a friend or a member. @Reid Smith posted this wonderful video on our page. And after I watched this all get out cool video I researched more on this gentleman by the name of Chris, and his YouTube channel is really good, full of information both educational and full of ideas in woodworking. Chris specializes in human power woodworking. And he has a very creative flair. Many of you may remember Chris as the fellow who built that anniversary gift for his wife, the long trestle table, it was a viral video that gained international attention. Well this is the same Chris. Below is another video I absolutely love watching, and here is the link to Chris's YouTube channel at Chops with Chris. Check it out, you'll find yourself sitting and watching many of his videos, they are that interesting. This is one cool video! Watch for the quick time portion near the beginning, it speeds up.
  8. My neighbor was cutting up a muscle tree which had fallen in the woods some time back and i noticed that it had a fair size chunk at the base and appeared to be spalted. I thought maybe someone would be interested in trying to turn this (I have no lathe)... so here are the pictures...if you're interested i can probably meet you somewhere in NE ohio to deliver it... too heavy to mail.
  9. Yesterday I walked into the shop with little time to do anything because we just had a full day, and it was late afternoon and I was really itching to do something, anything! So while LOML was getting ready for us to head out to our Anniversary dinner, I jumped out to the wood pile and just grabbed a log, any log, and cut it down to a block on my band saw. I am horrible at identifying logs based on bark, so I did not know what I was cutting into till I cut into it, as soon as the blade hit the end of the log I smelled the Pine, so that is what I had, was pine. When I originally grabbed the log, I was hoping it was some kind of hard wood, so I could cut it down and produce some Krenov style plane blanks. But it was fun anyway. Here are a couple images of how it went. I used my Grizz G0555 14" bandsaw with a 3/4" 3 TPI blade. And it cut through the 12" log with no problem. Now what do I do with this Pine squared up blank now? You got me, any ideas or suggestions?
  10. From the album: Tropical Almond Slabs

    Picked up this small Tropical Almond log on Friday and started milling over the 4th weekend, going to make some nice tables at Key West Custom Woodwork and Sawmilling
  11. Seems we had a wee bit of a breeze around these parts last week On the other end of town Tree fell down onto a Honda I think you will need a metal detector, before you saw this log. Don't know who owned the accord, looks like they might be getting a different one? Do you think JB Weld will help this one?
  12. Ok turners, I got a log! Found it on the roadside in a stack of other logs from the same tree, it's about 12" diameter and 18" long, has the bark on as you can see, and it's wet! It weighs about 60 pounds or more, I think. What would yall do with it first, to prep if for turning? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
