We purchased the remains of the 1885 Dillinger and Sons Distillery a few years ago. Many of the structures are gone or in disrepair. But the last remaining whiskey ageing house remains. It still contains 70,000 board feet of old growth oak, several thousand board feet of hemlock, and heart pine. We have geared up to convert this rustic wood into tables, chairs and other useful home furnishings. This has not been easy. To convert this wood a rather large learning curve was taken on. Most new wood is easy to use as its very consistent and homogeneous. This antique wood has knots, splits, dirt, is very hard, and has lots of nails. A true problem child. To save as much of this wood as possible we designed our custom process that can tailored to each piece. We came up with a simple custom nail puller, We built a custom band saw using a carbide blade to slice through nails. To cut the 16ft long boards perfectly parallel we made a dual cut saw. And most recently automated planer tables, and to come... a thermal continuous vacuum system. Check out our first few pieces here under our projects, and our web page Thanks Keith Maginsky.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
