Odds 'N' Ends #4: Pallet Wood De-Nailer

01-25-2016 09:54 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

This is by far my most popular video on Youtube. Funny thing is that I almost didn’t upload it because I didn’t think anyone would be interested. I was wrong. From my channel: Getting the nails out of pallet wood can be the most time-consuming part of salvaging the wood. The pallets I have come apart pretty easily, so I wanted to find a faster, easier way to get the nails out. This is what I came up with… Pallet Wood De-Nailer

Scrap Wood Project- Candy Coffin Dish

10-30-2014 04:52 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Just in time for Halloween! Build this easy made candy dish in the shape of a coffin. after your base is in it’s final dimension (measurements included in video), there is no more measuring-even with the different angles. Check out the video and see how it is made. Please subscribe for more woodworking videos AND blacksmithing videos. And if you want to watch some nonprofessional welding, watch this video below as I create a skeleton out of some scrap metal around the shop.

The ugly side of urban logging... This is why yard logs are not worth buying.

08-01-2012 12:12 AM by HalDougherty | 15 comments »

Here is what you get in a lot of yard trees. The owner always swears nobody every put any metal in my trees… Yea right…. The screw driver in this slab has 8 inches of surface exposed. The blade just missed it…. Hitting that would have made my metal detector go off… Each time it goes off it costs me $25.00 for a new blade. This cherry tree is a nice average size tree and the screwdriver was in the center at the first crotch. I didn’t saw this log. ...

Calipers, the frugal way. --or-- I'm a complete tightwad, and here's proof.

11-30-2011 08:33 AM by dspahn | 9 comments »

I’m pretty frugal. I had it drilled into me by my parents, who are also extremely frugal. Most of the time I’m grateful for it. Every now and then I’m just the tiniest bit ashamed. I’m not sure yet which category tonight’s escapade falls into. Maybe you can be the judge. ;) I wanted to get some calipers to measure diameters of whatever I’m turning.

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #3: Sawhorse the first - the oops version.

08-02-2010 02:45 AM by AnnaEA | 4 comments »

Headed down stairs after dinner this evening to start building my sawhorses. I started by sorting out the lumber and selecting which faces I wanted on top of the I-beams. Oops the first – I need to finish the cuts on two of the legs – they should be 30” and they measure 36” – I forgot to cut trim the ends. Well, I need more practice handsawing anyways. With the very bored help of my daughter, I built the I-beams. Next up, nailing on the legs. I ...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

09-14-2009 03:39 AM by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...
