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

The Pallet Mallet

06-18-2016 03:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 1 comment »

Hi folks! So, having broken my faithful mallet, I set out to make a new one out of some hardwood stretchers that I reclaimed from a pallet. View on YouTube

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...

Garage Cabinet #2: Slowly but slowly

02-04-2014 07:47 PM by jakeprater | 2 comments »

This morning, rather than exercising or actually studying for school, I went back to the garage to try to knock out the shelf. I was out there for about 45 minutes, and came in at 1:00 pm. I went out at 8:30. So my day was pretty well shot. I’ll hit the books this afternoon, take a test, and hopefully not fail. Here you can see I’ve got the face frame attached. I like to use dowels to help me keep everything aligned – plus I’m a little cheap, so I don’t wa...

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...

Routing a Clock Face

04-22-2016 09:21 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19UQdKfjUsY About a month ago, I made a clock out of some pallet wood. I decided it was about time I give the clock face some TLC. I hope you enjoy!

Reclaimed Glory #4: Workbench from reclaimed/salvaged lumber - mounting a face vise

08-21-2013 07:01 AM by palaswood | 4 comments »

I got started in woodworking about six months ago when I brought home a small log that was cut from a much bigger log off a black mulberry tree down the street that has fallen apart due to age, its own weight and who knows what else (but yields gobs of incredibly sweet fruit) As I stripped the bark and saw what was inside, I was mezmerized. This is a very old tree and yielded gorgeous wood. One thing led to another, and I began in earnest to amass a hoard of wood from anywhere I cou...

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...

Thorsen Table contest #3: getting started

04-23-2007 04:05 AM by scottb | 17 comments »

One of my first ideas for this challenge was to make a “green” table – as in recycled, not painted. After weeks of pondering, and ultimately ignoring the problem of where to begin, and more importantly, what to use, I remembered that I had this door sitting in my shed. It may have been original to the house, but has been collecting dust for the past 5 or so years since we bought the house and replaced the exterior doors – this one had dog door cut out of it and was ...

Prospecting for Wood #2: Needle in a Haystack

05-25-2007 01:33 AM by Paul | 6 comments »

Click the thumbnails for larger pics . Here’s the pile I explore occasionally- it extends back at least 20 yards. Lots of protruding nails and shakey footing. I try to keep my feet on the ground though and pass on anything I don’t believe I can get to, or uncover, safely. You can see how easy it would be to fall or have something fall on me. My tetnus shot is current!: No great finds to report. Just some pallet oak, two 4×4 oak timbers and a pine board to use ...
