Logs to Lumber #2: Milling a Cherry Tree (and a video)

01-30-2018 08:39 PM by JohnMcClure | 1 comment »

Funny how things work out, I started building the kiln assuming I’d find some wood to mill. Before the kiln was finished, though, the wood found me! A colleague discovered a cherry tree, cut down and limbed, at a local park. We suspected it had washed up in Hurricane Harvey, as the river had flooded the entire park about a month previously, and there were no stumps nearby. Reasoning that the fallen tree was a safety hazard, I dutifully performed a community service by removing flood deb...

Logs to Lumber #1: The Black Mulberry log what started it all...

08-22-2013 10:44 PM by palaswood | 5 comments »

After reading Don W's post on his white oak find during a hunting trip, which while reading I truly felt taken along for the entire journey, I decided to post pics of my first foray into this world of wood. I brought home a black mulberry log from a large limb that has been down for 18 months at least, most likely much longer. I used a shopbuilt jig (thanks Izzy for the idea!) and my craftsman table saw to get a few tiny boards off it for a jewelry box for the girlfriend that hasn’t...

I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay... #2: Cutting up the logs

02-27-2012 08:12 PM by digitalwood | 11 comments »

Why is it that I get all the work done and then forget to post an entry and pictures?!? Sigh. Must be the psychotropic properties of sawdust no doubt. Anyway, I took some picture of the cutting process. As I mentioned before, I have swingblade mill that made quick work of the logs. I have one left that is going to be cut into slabs rather than lumber with the five foot chainsaw bar attachment. The crotched piece should have some interesting grain. I lost two carbide tip off one blade to a ...

Milling #1: It begins....

I think I mentioned in my last blog that I love hearing/reading/seeing about wood gloats and also logs to lumber blogs. I haven’t done much in the way of blogs but, better late than never. A few weeks ago, me and dad went wood cutting. I usually come along to look out for fallen trees to take home and stick on the lathe. Lucky I went this particular time.there was a tall skinny, and by that I mean about 20m tall by about 250mm diameter, unidentified tree laying over a track. someone ...
