BOOMBY or an OGWOOFY!

11-22-2018 06:07 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 16 comments »

Boys and Girls, BOOMBY is a species of wood I discovered when I first moved down to Churchill. It is derived from the genus, Branch Out Of My Back Yard… and produces some reasonable by products, Just recently I discovered another new species called OGWOOFY which is a very closely guarded species of Over Grown Weed Out Of Front Yard(s), As in those blockbuster movies, grab some popcorn and let’s go back in time… about 12 months ago I bought some useless item fro...

Workshop #27: Table Saw Saw Mill

03-09-2014 06:58 PM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Well as my journey of processing wood for use in turning continues. I have been looking for a way to cut my own stuff using the bandsaw I have. it mostly works well enough but is not great at resawing. I came across Izzy Swan great channel on YouTube. I really liked the idea of using my table saw to mill logs, so I decided to tackle the project. The video for this can be found here. After completing the build. I grabbed a piece of holly I have had around for a bit. Cut it to len...

Roy Underhill style Maul / Mallet - Black Walnut #1: Free wood is good wood part 1

The other day I was driving home and noticed a neighbor had cut back a tree and had some limbs at the curb. I see this fairy often and very rarely stop to grab anything in it’s raw state. I have a very limited space and have no means to resaw limbs into planks/boards. For some strange reason I stopped immediately, that tree looks different, I thought to myself, It didn’tLook like the other trees in my area… Hmmm I loaded up as much as I could fit into the back and head...

Sawmill #1: Upgraded my Sawmill

09-05-2013 08:18 PM by Hugh | 12 comments »

That chainsaw mill was hard work for the past 4 years but it got the job done. I have upgraded my sawmill now and my new Woodmizer LT40 make it a lot easier. I just got back from the neurologist getting a nerve study done on my wrist because I have really aggravated my carpal tunnel now. It looks like the surgery procedure is coming soon. Man handling big logs will get you in the long run but I enjoy cutting the wood. This Woodmizer with all the hydraulics makes it Soooo much easier. I have ...

Bodgering #1: Requirement Gathering for a Bodger Site

06-27-2013 08:18 AM by Garret D., Rock Run | 6 comments »

So I am going to be setting up a site for rustic woodworking. But I do want some primitive amenities. I will have some electrical, but I will not be using purchased wood. I will either salvage it, or make it. I plan on doing allot of chainsaw work here, including slabbing with a chainsaw mill. So I think I need some more robust saw horses, if I am to place 500 pound logs on them for working. I am thinking something short and stout. Great example from the internet: Next I will need...

Lumber and Milling #1: Sycamores, for Free

06-12-2012 02:58 PM by tsangell | 1 comment »

Through a series of fortunate coincidences, I became the owner of three nice, free sycamore logs. As the quick-and-dirty version goes: a buddy of a buddy lined them up for me, and another buddy retrieved them. I had not even seen the logs until I showed up at the saw mill last Friday to make some lumber. I was pleased with the quality of the logs. They weren’t incredibly long, but they were straight and clear, and a good size. I’m glad my network of buddies rescued these fr...
