  1. What's on your work bench? This is the official topic for images and friendly chatter regarding that all important surface, the personal statement of your shop, the steadfast friend we can always count on, the space of your shop that nobody knows better than you, we are talking about the almighty "Work Bench". Submit your images now! That's right, don't clean it up, don't be embarrassed, the messier the better, or if there is nothing on it at all, that is fine too. If you have not touched your bench in years, and you have taken a break from woodworking and have boxes pile
  2. Walked down to the garden this morning and I see the garlic is starting to poke through the leaf mulch. I guess spring can't be too far away. Don't forget to turn your clocks forward this Saturday night or you will be late to Sunday School! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald took some time to rearrange his turning area. No easy feat and he will probably looking for where he put stuff for some time to come! Our members all sympathized with the amount of work required to do this. You can see their comments in Gerald's post- @Masonsailor Took
  3. I just talked to a guy about some wood he wants to sell. He said he has 7 pieces 7’ long, 12” wide and 3.5” thick. He said they are old and dry. He thinks they are oak or hickory. He is asking around $100 for all of it. He is going to send me some pictures tomorrow. That would make a lot of bowls if it is any good. He said there is not any rot or cracks. Wish me luck.
  4. I not sure where to post this so if I'm wrong please move it. A saw mill is all about wood so I thought I would post it here. I was going to wait to start posting anything new until I finished reading all the post on this forum but I'm only on page 64 of general woodworking and it's taking forever. I have lots of wood working machines that I have built that will be posted sometime later. The hardest parts to find when building a band mill is the wheels. I did some welding at Grizzly tools and took in trade these two band wheels for payment. I think I
  5. So saw a post on how wood sizes have changed over years. Was this strictly about money on. Companies behalf or was there more to it. Example why a 2x4 is not a 2x4.
  6. I just saw a news report that people are poaching the burls growing on the Redwood trees in California. Here is a related item from the NY Times http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/09/us/poachers-attack-beloved-elders-of-california-its-redwoods.html?_r=0 I can't believe that the money grubbing bastards would stoop so low. Please be careful where you buy your burl wood.
  7. Got this a bit ago from one of the guys in our county woodworking club. Besides the mill tour overall, I enjoyed the "mini-tug" sorter/loader and the band-saw automated sharpening station. This is in @Chips N Dust neighborhood. Enjoy! A complete tour of the Hull Oaks Lumber Company in Monroe, Oregon, one of the last steam operated sawmills in the country, from arriving timber to finished product.
  8. I have always had questions about air dried lumber. I know people buy it and seem to get buy with the higher moisture content but I have always been scared to buy it. I am afraid one day it will explode. LOL So what is your take on buying air dried versus kiln dried lumber? I am not talking about lumber for turning a bowl.
  9. This popped up as one of my suggested videos. Lots of old 'arn. Early in the video unique method (to me anyway) to sharpen carbide teeth and then to replace a tooth insert. enjoy.
  10. I'm not familiar with This wood type. I'll bet I've seen it and just thought it was artificial, as most outdoor projects seem to be. I am also interested it playing around with some of it. My neighbor put in a new floor. A beautiful highly grained wood. I collected some of his scraps, thinking I could make some knitting needles on my mini lathe. Everything I did with it was a disaster. It was so darn hard and it splintered easy. I asked what it was and someone said Bamboo. If it was, it sure fooled me. Anyone know what bamboo wood or IPE is like to work with using shop machinery?
  11. Last summer we took a trip to Lake Tahoe and toured the surrounding areas as well, this image is inside the Donner Museum, and I am standing next to a 48" big bad blade. Now what I cannot remember if this was a blade to cut through ice in the nearby Donner Lake, or if it was used in a mill, I don't think this would cut wood very well, so I am leaning towards it being an ice blade to cut ice blocks for the local towns refrigerating needs. But it is was impressive either way. I was going through some memories today of 2014 and found this.
  12. One good yard sale this morning...dodging rain squalls all day long... 12" level... small marking gauge for a dollar.....then went to a friend of mines, for a stash of Ash, again 20 pieces...and a 7/4 x 6 x 3' slab for a new saw handle....$20... Will try to get the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up back on-line...and see about a new desk to set this computer on... Average length on these boards...6'.....some longer, some shorter....4/4 x 6 with one at 8-10" wide... Stay tuned...
  13. Got a delivery today. Saw some nice crotches in there I may not be able to resist sawing some up for lumber This wood is city clicker lumber. Came from a City out east.
  14. We finally got a break in the rain. Made a trip to the sawmill to pick up a load of poplar we have needed. At the same time left a couple of Cedar logs to get cut. Got it a call to go by and pick up the nice Elm. At least to 14’ logs. Looks like it has some beautiful grain. Now or we can move on with a couple of other jobs we were on hold with because of all the rain. Im looking forward to seeing the beautiful grain patterns in that Elm.
  15. On New Years Day we made our rounds and visited family, and we paid ol pops a visit. He lives in the local mountains, there was even a tad bit of snow left from the last snow he had! After we spent a few hours there we ventured up the mountain some more and let the kids roll in the big snow. But here are a few random shots of dad and his shop. Image below is what is leftover of his cedar pile of wood, he loves making birdhouses, and he sells them locally. Next up is his old 70's vintage Craftsman Band Saw And a late model Craftsman Contractors Table Saw he uses for secondary cuts or he
  16. I have to replace the box sill on the house. This is not a load bearing wall. I have 20' to replace. I'm thinking about replacing 8' at a time with putting a nailer board behind each 2x10 for strength. I don't want to take out the whole 20' at once. Not sure if the wall will sag alittle while the 8' is being torn out? Then I would have to toe nail into the box to the bottom of the plywood and wall plate to nail it down again? I've replaced box sills on load bearing walls before where I had to jack up the floor joist. Can anyone tell me if this is the way you would do t
  17. I just returned from Woodcraft where I was informed that Yellow Hart is endangered and no longer available. Darn! It was one of my all time favorites
  18. Folks, another long project in our saga of refinancing our home through the VA. We are now neck deep in tear out and rebuild of our entire second story master bedroom balcony and shade structure for the patio below. The wood was dry-rotted, I let it go waaay too long. And now I have it all ripped out, and I got a stack full of wonderful Rough Doug Fir for the project. While I have been performing the structural portion of this project, wife and kids have been painting the boards. We purchased some 6" mini rollers 3/4 nap. The problem is the fibers from the roughsawn lumber coat
  19. A couple of weeks ago I posted this picture of some logs I got from a lady, carried to the mill to get sawn into lumber. Yesterday I got a call from my sawyer to come pick up the lumber. So we hooked up the 18' trailer and headed out to the saw mill which is about 10 miles from the house. As it turned out most of the logs were White Oak and a couple of Red Oak, two Poplar and two Hickory. He cut away the bad parts on the outside of the logs and looks like we got some good lumber. I had all of it sawn at 5/4 and there are a few pieces thicker.
  20. Ok, at the moment, we are waiting on a carpet installer to lay new carpet in the house, to replace the fire hose soaked stuff. Takes a while to get things done, after a fire, it would seem. The Boss is unhappy with the size of the current "pantry cupboard" . More of a "Chimney Cupboard" than a Pantry. So...she wants a much wider and tall version built. Told her the following things ( then ducked?) 32" wide wasn't quite do-able, but 31" will do? Still debating on the height of the top.... It WILL have two doors.....how fancy-schmansy the
  21. ;Got this today from WOOD Magazine. I'm not a big fan of reclaimed wood (prefer something a little more formal) but if you're ever faced with working with it here are some techniques. Mostly what to do with those cut edges without patina. And remember: * A technique is a trick used more than once -- Georg Poyla * Onions have layers, Ogres have layers. Finish has layers, -- Shrek (well 2/3 of it) http://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-how-to/finishes-finishing/finishing-reclaimed-lumber
  22. I am hoping to enlist some extra eyes on this dilemma we are facing with creating certain departments in our wiki. I am currently working on our own wood data base. We all know about the popular and famous "The Wood Database". But in an effort to create one of our own, I need to use the terminology and listings of the properties of the wood. The Wood Database does have all of this, I could copy their structure and format. But I won't and can't. Because well, that would be copying. So in order to be original, and our wiki based on independent "Open Source" research, I need to find a websit
