Behind-the-scenes tour - how we make flooring

02-03-2020 05:57 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Here is a behind the scenes tour of us making some red oak rift and quartered hardwood flooring. If you’ve never seen the process before it’s kind of cool to see (at least I think so!). This link will take you to my YouTube channel. Why, you ask? Because I cannot figure out how to embed video on LumberJocks anymore (it used to work for me). If anyone knows how, please let me know! Thanks-Steve

How to dimension lumber with handtools #4: Parallel face and edge

09-15-2018 12:20 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

After establishing the reference face and edge, I use my marking gauge to mark the board thickness using the reference face as the guide. Once I have marked all four sides, I use my jack plane, jointer plane and smoothing plane to bring down the rough surface of the board to my marking lines. Then, I repeat the step for the board width using the reference edge as the guide. Once finished the board was perfectly square. (as perfect as necessary at least). If you would like to watch my video...

Almost had a bad accident while milling a log

A few months ago, a friend and I were milling up a walnut log. Not until I was editing the video did I realize how close we came to a horrible accident. Be safe guys, and don’t get complacent! https://youtu.be/Rv7ZHwptGGc

Wooden Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 #1: Google Sketchup and Design

01-05-2017 10:28 PM by TObenhuber | 0 comments »

Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...

View on YouTube I visited Michael Cooper in January of 2016. Michael is an unbelievably creative and talented guy. His body of work is so impressive that you will have to see it to believe it. He and his wife, Gayle, are as friendly, nice, and down to earth as Michael is talented. If I had to sum them up in one word it would be “Wonderful”. Michael Cooper Shop Entrance Entrance to Michael Cooper’s Shop Michael has a 2000 sq. foot shop in northern California. The setting is...

Diary of a Wood Hoarder #2: When friends enable...Gathering and milling (lots of pictures)

08-05-2014 02:03 PM by CFrye | 45 comments »

My friend, Julie, who gave me a downed wild cherry tree, said they had taken down a hackberry tree in their yard and her in-laws, a silver maple, was I interested? Um, let me think about it YES! Hubby and I went to see. The hackberry had been ‘hacked’. Maybe some spalting in there…possible bowl blanks? probable firewood. The stump was still standing, about 6-8 feet tall with a long forgotton clothes line imbedded in it. Kinda cool, a little bit of history. Went to look at...
