Dimensioning Lumber

02-01-2021 06:41 PM by 18wheelznwood | 13 comments »

One of my goals in improving my woodworking skills was to be able to purchase inexpensive rough lumber and mill it down to my desired needs. So, I bought a Dewalt 735 thickness planer and a Delta 6” Benchtop jointer to help do this. After many YouTube videos on this particular subject I felt it was time to try my hand at it. My nearby Rockler store had a nice selection of rough maple boards on sale so I picked out a nice looking one and boy was it rough. Not a square edge or corner to be foun...

Trying new woodworking skills #7: Dressing up rough lumber

09-26-2013 11:11 PM by BJODay | 3 comments »

Hey all you LumberJocks out there. I am getting to ready to start a new project, which would you prefer to read about? A flag display case and shadow box, or an Arts and Crafts end table. Both will be made from a couple of oak trees a friend of mine had taken down about two years ago. I just moved into a new shop, and in the process of moving all of that lumber, I figured it was finally time to put it to good use. It has air dried is down to around 8%. It has been in my new shop for over a m...
