Antique Tackle Show Wares

04-21-2008 09:27 PM by Paul | 5 comments »

I haven’t been too active on the site lately. But I have been making sawdust in preparation for antique fishing tackle show that I attend, and display at, each year as a member of a fishing tackle collecting club. I’ve shown past examples of all these projects in my projects pages. So, I thought I would just post the latest versions. Wish me luck this coming weekend. I bill these as tackle storage chests, but they’re based on a machinist-type chest for small tools. T...

Knotty Pine #5: All done (for now)

03-22-2008 01:15 AM by Kevin | 0 comments »

I took two days off work and drove back to my Grandpa’s this weekend in an effort to complete the de-construction of the house and salvage all of the Knotty Pine and Ash that I could. I just got to town when I called Grandpa and he informed me that he decided to leave the house standing and use it as storage for the farm. Crap – I wasted a weekend. Oh well, what ever he wants to do is fine with me. I guess Dad and I will go fishing instead – maybe not such a waste of a...

Knotty Pine #4: Anyone want any?

03-18-2008 02:20 AM by Kevin | 2 comments »

I decided today that I would offer some of the Knotty Pine and Ash up for sale to anyone on Lumber Jocks. I am not doing this to make money, I am doing this because I hate to see it go up in smoke. If I have no takers by this weekend, I’ll get what I can and the remainder will probably be burnt down. Cost? – Make an offer. Location – SE Kansas or Wichita, Kansas

Knotty Pine #3: Brought home a trailer load today

03-17-2008 04:33 AM by Kevin | 7 comments »

Here are a few of the boards we have been able to salvage so far. This is probably 1/3 of the Knotty Pine that is there. I will probably get half this much again and then let the building be destroyed. I just simply do not know what to do with all of it, have no good place to store it, and quite frankly do not have the time to keep going back home every weekend to work on it. Trailer is 18’ x 7’ Most are 8’ – 9’, some 4’, some 12’, and some ...

Knotty Pine #2: Progress Update and Studs are ASH!!!

02-26-2008 06:17 AM by Kevin | 8 comments »

I know it’s been a long time since I have updated this blog, but there hasn’t been much to update until now. Reminder Picture: I have all of the knotty pine off of the interior walls. I have also taken a portion of the studs home and cleaned it up. Thanks to Les Hastings and the other guys at the Sunflower Woodworkers Guild, I now have a positive identification on the stud species. Ash. Yes, Ash. I would have never guessed, but am glad I decided to try and...

The Gazebo #1: Almost finished.

12-29-2007 09:10 PM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

Somewhere on here I’d started a blog about our gazebo. I’ll have to go back and find the other blog entries. We started out with a 10×10 tent gazebo purchased from Rona, and after the wind destroyed the frame, it became a wooden framed gazebo with the tarps for walls and roof. The weather has been rough on the tarps and we have had to start replacing the tarps with wood. Other than the 2×4’s, we have used scrap pieces of everything and anything we could find ...

Life on the North 40 #1: The Old Barn

11-16-2007 09:59 PM by Peter Oxley | 10 comments »

A discussion about free wood led to some conversation about barn lumber. We have an old barn that came with this place, and I thought I’d share some of our efforts to keep it standing. This is not a majestic old barn built by a well-to-do country gentleman. This was built by a poor depression-era farmer out of whatever he could cobble together. Despite our efforts to keep it standing, we often have people stop by to “offer” to tear it down for us if we let them have the ...

Knotty Pine #1: Help Please. How do I save it?

10-24-2007 04:16 AM by Kevin | 16 comments »

This is a cry for help really. I have a house full of old knotty pine tongue & groove walls & ceilings. This house and this wood especially holds a special place in my heart. The house must be torn down, and you will all understand that I just can’t let all that wood go up in smoke. There is approximately 3700lf of 7” boards. The longest being on the ceiling and are 16’. I have taken off a couple boards and ran them through the planer to see what they would...
