Milling Lumber from Arizona Residental Trees #5: Moving logs and new destinations on what I am milling. Opps No Russian Olive.

04-02-2021 03:11 PM by azwoodworker | 1 comment »

So my friend who’s a rigger stopped by to give me advice today on moving the logs around and it was simple. I need to use my winch set up that used to be on my trailer and cut out the dolly idea and just pull the log over to the 1-ton winch and I will also get another at Harbor Freight. (I know harbor freight but for 49 dollars it is worth it. I would never rig anything with any importance with it like Truss or anyone over something live. The one-ton is actually a 1/2 ton per the rigg...

Milling Lumber from Arizona Residental Trees #3: Russian Olive and Mesquite have similar bark

03-29-2021 01:22 PM by azwoodworker | 3 comments »

Slabbed into First Russian olive or what I thought was Russian olive and was excited until I got to the next log of Russian olive and realized that what I had was Mesquite in the first log. OH well. I got all four cuts on the Russian olive to be straight and flat. The system is working well. Logs still unwieldy in moving. Did 1 1/2 logs today. Mesquite not straight but this would be good behind the couch or hall table.

Recycle a few scraps #1: Getting to a glue up...

03-20-2021 11:55 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

One of the chores in the last few projects, is ripping a panel, or just a plank, to get to a certain width. usually results in a strip of scrap…..that for some reason or other, I just can’t throw out. After a while, there is a pile of the strips of scraps…too small to do much more than a few cauls….which get tossed away once the clamps are done with them… So…some thinking was done, dangerous I know…about gluing up a panel of those scraps…t...

A Project for March #9: Almost done

03-16-2021 01:47 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Set up a sander, to remove burn marks, and overlong dovetails… Made sure this table was square to the platten,,,, Burn marks on the lid are gone. Clamps on the drawer are too. Sanded the corners smooth, all four of them, and tried a dry fit into the case… Didn’t want to shove it all the way in…in case it gets stuck….there was an issue, though….bottom of the drawer was a bit too long…needed trimmed down a bit…we have ways.. Juni...

Small Projects #42: Indoor Car Stereo

03-14-2021 03:22 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Have had this idea about building a home stereo (glorified AM/FM) out of a “one DIN” car stereo. Saw someone make a beautiful zebrawood case for an old Marantz receiver and got the bug to make a wooden stereo of my own. Continue reading for build details … I’ve got a beautiful piece of wenge that I’m going to use for the front and top. The plan was to use cherry for the ends but things change. The wenge is very dark and the cherry was to be a light contrast...

A Project for March #8: Build a drawer

03-14-2021 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laundry Detail this afternoon…meant about 3 hours in the shop, while the Laundry got done… Last glue up was removed from the clamps… Not too bad? Means I can better size the parts to the drawer. Front needed a trim on the ends, and a swipe or two along an edge….same with the 2 sides. Already had one corner dovetailed… So, now I needed to get the other end dovetailed…Same as before..Lay out the pins, first.. Saw the lines… Cut a k...

03-11-2021 04:26 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Floor of the compartment sits in a rebate in front of the box..set up the Stanley 45 for that job… Took longer to set up, than to actually do this….next…reset the 45 again.As the other 3 sides need a groove to match….longer rods, to reach over into the middle….use the just ploughed rebate to set the distance… Set the jig up.Plough a 1/4” wide groove… The router plane is there, to level the bottom of the groove. had issues with the two...
