Just a quick peak at what I got up to today when I was not checking the hundreds of emails from all the LJs who commented on my last few posts.. Thank you very much.. I did not realize how much of my daily routine now revolves around this site.. Addictive…I also had time to drive the twenty odd miles into the big smoke..Brisbane and go shopping at Carba-tec..I know I have all the fun..A coupla new router bits..some very expensive toggle clamps [for a new jig to make the sunburst design...

Lumber Making #1: A "Mini" Series - up to present

06-26-2007 07:10 AM by Dorje | 19 comments »

I’m posting these pictures as a means to get bloggin’…and, because I’m interested in milling and drying lumber (on a scale that I can accommodate – in the backyard). I’m also brand new at it, so it’s just fun to share! I would have liked to have photos or video of this ‘small time’ sawing in the backyard, but wasn’t quite there yet! Inspired by Bob’s forum topic post the other day on the craigslist cherry crotchwood, I took some pics of some crotchwood I cut in April… A couple p...

04-19-2007 10:20 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 19 comments »

My Walnut board was 6 3/4” wide, but it was dished a little, so I ripped it in half, & joined it in 4 sections for the top, I also glued some Ash to the edges. The Top clamped up.Now I have to go out, & start with the breadboard ends for the Tabletop. This is one of the Shelves, using my new Irwin Clamps

Urban logging #1: A small victory in urban logging (part 1)

05-23-2008 02:13 PM by Daren Nelson | 19 comments »

I am an “Urban Logger”. I only mill trees from town. There is a reason for this. I am a tree hugger (yea really) Not the stereotype, insert your own mental picture here, that have given that title a negative connotation. BUT, I do love trees. I think they are magnificent. I know this sounds weird from a guy that runs a sawmill, you would think I just feel they are for me to chop down and mill and make money from. It’s not like that at all . I started sawmilling just to keep ...

Thinking about making a go at saw milling

12-19-2011 04:29 AM by NewEnglandsWoodWorks | 19 comments »

I have been intrigued by the Logosol chainsaw mill for quite a long time now. In particular the M7 Chainsaw Mill. But in the high two thousand dollar range, it is way out of my budget. I believe that the mill is not nearly worth that price. I So, I think I’m going to start making my own chainsaw mill out of wood! I plan to make a wooden platform for the log bed with steps so I can move the log up one at a time. To control the depth of cut I am going to build a sled that will slide a lo...

David's [aka Patron] double curve..my version of the jig? #1: Where to start? The Table!

06-10-2009 10:07 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

I have spent the last few days in the workshop working out how to make this jig.. and have it durable and repeatable and totally accurate and easy to use.Actually this jig can be used for two different projects … well probably more that two but thats all I have used it for so far.To start, I had to build a table to go over the bandsaw table for the jig to pivot on. [double pivot actually][two pivots two pics right!! ]The table was made from 5/8” [15mm] plywood, with silver ash us...

Lumber #2: Shorts, and a T

02-09-2009 06:28 PM by PurpLev | 18 comments »

I’ve got the shorts sorted out, but still don’t have a T ruler… one step at a time. So I took the table saw, shop vac, outfeed roller, and everything else that was in the way out of the garage and started organizing the stack of shorts I got. to the ordinary person passing by, I might have looked like a psycho – cleaning board by board with compressed air to clean the wood – from the wood dust on it (these all came from a manufacturing shop and were covered...

Roubo Bench - Becoming usable

07-13-2009 04:27 AM by kenn | 18 comments »

I have made lots of progress and actually am using my new bench some, I’ve just needed to get an update here. After putting the top on the base, I marked out so I could start hand planing.I used my scrub plane to get things close, that’s the scrub plane’s results above, and then this #5 to get the top flat and without wind.Here’s a picture of the top in “near” flat and smooth. FYI, I ended up with about 45 gallons of shavings.To trim the ends to final le...

I also decide to usesome purple heart as an accent. No...

Spirals #6: We are not finished yet.

06-03-2009 02:23 AM by degoose | 18 comments »

Next step is to make the ends of the segments curved. Shell-like if you want.For that we need a new jig.. Yeah I know some of you haven’t finished the first one..!This is ultra simple.Firstly a fresh piece of ply .. 1/4 ” is fine.I inserted a bearing to make this more durable .. same same as last one.This was positioned 4.5 ” from the end[centred on the width] and an arc cut on the end via the circle cutting jig.. same same.Cut two fences same as the one of the first jig &#...
