A Strategy for Woodworking #51: Taking Down a Tree

05-14-2015 02:32 AM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

I hate cutting down trees. As much as I love the wood that comes from them, there is still something about cutting down a tree that seems to me an affront. A crime against the sky. Certainly it is a loss of some valuable shade in the heat of the sun. And it changes a landscape, a street view. But it was half dead and once cut, discovered to be rotten inside. It had to come down now in a noisy if controlled fashion rather than taking out someone’s car some chance day. It was a good sized tr...

The old time woodshop journals #29: Trip to simplicity

10-09-2012 10:08 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Friday morning found our travels set upon faster paces than normal with New Jersey traffic in high demand and far from giving any neighboring driver a brake. For me and Jenn this is not really our favorite part of living in NJ but we make the best of where we are at and adapt to the madness as best as possible. Soon we were moving past the welcome to NY sign and the scenery was growing in color and in country as we progressed farther north to upstate. When possible it’s good to get away an...

The old time woodshop journals #16: Thoughts without pictures

07-28-2012 10:04 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

The simple pleasures of enjoying my shop include the sounds of nature. I love to hear the birds talk their own language or maybe listen to a late afternoon breeze announcing it’s arrival and sending a small wave of coolness into the shop as if it were saying a friendly hello. The sound of the saw when it is freshly sharpened and greets the wood with that strong crisp command of a kerf to a clean cut. Looking at the handle when placing it down on my bench and having just a minute o...

Wisconsin Storm Damage #1: Trees, trees, trees, and more trees

09-09-2011 07:06 AM by lightweightladylefty | 5 comments »

On September 2, a violent storm with 65 to 85 mph winds crossed central Wisconsin. It seems there was very little coverage of the storm. Even the communities less than an hour north or south of us were not aware of the severity of the storm which isn’t surprising considering the news coverage. Once our power was restored (32 hours later), this was all the news I could find about our county. (When our power was restored, more than half of those affected were still without power.)“Straight ...

Milling Lumber (grudgingly) #1: What would you do?

09-01-2011 12:12 PM by MoshupTrail | 14 comments »

It is interesting that the storm knocked over almost exclusively the red oaks. I lost 6-10 large (60-80 yr old) trees, 18-24” in diameter. So the question is, what do you do with vast quantities of red oak? It’s not the most popular wood, but it has some good qualities. These are just a few of the trees I lost. It’s a mess in there.
