Workshop #27: Table Saw Saw Mill

03-09-2014 06:58 PM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Well as my journey of processing wood for use in turning continues. I have been looking for a way to cut my own stuff using the bandsaw I have. it mostly works well enough but is not great at resawing. I came across Izzy Swan great channel on YouTube. I really liked the idea of using my table saw to mill logs, so I decided to tackle the project. The video for this can be found here. After completing the build. I grabbed a piece of holly I have had around for a bit. Cut it to len...

Like opening a Christmas present

12-19-2013 05:13 AM by jasonallen | 2 comments »

Awhile back i cut down some oak trees for a friend. I took the firewood for myself and we loaded up the trunks on a 2 ton truck and hauled them to a mill for his personal use. When I recently started my own little woodshop he gave me some of that lumber to get started with. Since we are all natural born tightwads around here he gave me the worst bottom of the barrel lumber out of the whole bunch. But I’m not complaining about free material. Today I decided to see what I could get o...

Saw Till #1: First Cuts

02-28-2012 04:43 AM by Brian S | 1 comment »

Tonight I started my saw till. It’s been a long time coming, let me tell you. I’ve had 3 full-size hand saws and 2 backsaws for a while now, but I was putting off making a place for them to live for lots of reasons. Primarily, most of them have not yet been cleaned up, so putting them in a nice rack seemed silly. Then yesterday, my new Bad Axe hybrid dovetail/carcase saw arrived, and I could no longer wait. I needed somewhere to put this beauty right away. No plans for th...

First logging/milling project

08-16-2010 02:52 AM by RJS | 2 comments »

This Oak Tree has been a part of out family for years. We have numerous pictures and memories of this tree when it was alive. The tree was struck by lightning approx. two years ago. My Dad Decided to take all of the limbs off of the tree and possibly have it milled into lumber. Is there anyone out there that can give me advice on how to choose a saw mill? How much will it cost? and what are the best “cuts to get out of the tree. This tree has been around forever, it deserves to li...

Michigan LumberJocks Picnic for Fall 2009

10-28-2009 03:33 AM by kshipp | 8 comments »

As a few other people have said already, we had a great time at the Michigan LumberJocks Picnic a few days ago. Rustics blog JockMike2s blog BillyJs blog SteveMI brought some of the projects he had been doing on his CNC router. It was really interesting to me that he used tinted stains instead of paint. He also made each one of us a commemorative plaque for the event on his CNC router. He even brought some tumbling block designs he was working on and showed us all th...

Amazing Tools #7: The Circular Swing Blade Mill

09-26-2009 11:44 AM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

Just stumbled upon these tonight. I’ve never seen them before. Very clever! It’s basically a band saw mill with a circular saw instead which can swing from horizontal to vertical blade alignment, and thus be run across a log 2 times to saw out a rectangular piece of dimensioned lumber. It helps to watch these 2 videos to understand what I mean: Obviously, no large through-cuts, so no very-wide slabs, but if you need to turn a big pile of pine, or a very huge tree into dime...
