  6. No Drill Press? Make a simple jig for your power drill.

    I do not have a drill press and needed to gouge out some mortises at a 15 degree angle. The drill needs to be able to enter and exit without any wobble and parallel to the jig. The frame fits the drill snug. I had to put a screw in the back of the drill to make it parallel (Checked for...

    I've purchased some old air dried oak to use for a project. I have used oak from the same source in the past. All has been stacked for at least 8 years. My shop is not air conditioned. On previous projects, I made my drawer fronts etc overly tight. Then when the project is near completion, took...

    Over the winter I was able to rescue a few walnut logs from a fiends firewood pile. I had them milled a little over 1" thick and was able to keep them in a heated environment for the past 6 months. My moisture meter reads ~10% on most of the boards. When I started to thickness plane them I...

    Calling All Texas Lumberjocks... Hey Guys, I told a friend I'd try and sell some of his black walnut so here's the offer. I'm trying to put together a package deal since he wants to sell all 7000 bf of it in one fell swoop, of course it doesn't have to be all one buyer. Anyway the wood is...

    I have cut some boards from a dead maple tree blown down on my property. I bought a moisture meter and the wood is about 12%. I have stacked in my shop and have a fan blowing through. I want to build a desk with the lumber. At what moisture content can I successfully build with the air dried...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Hey, gang, I sometimes see lumber in CL or other places - and sometimes at very competitive prices. Often the lumber has been air-dried. So beside being stickered and dried for a certain amount of time, what esle do I need to ask the seller? Can air dried be as good/better than kiln dried...

    3M P100 grit drive belt (model #613G01) for a Performax/SuperMax 25×2 dual drum sander. The belt has never been used and I have no use for it. It is the wrong size for my older 25×2 sander so I'm trying to give someone that can use it a super deal. This belt sells new for approximately $120 so...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    Found a guy that is about 3 hours away from me wanting to sell some black walnut boards. Rough cut, 4/4, between 8-16 in wide and 6-8 ft long. 450 bd ft. Awesome price, which makes me wary. He says the lumber has been air dried under a barn for 20 years. SO, question is, since its 3+ hours drive...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I have 5 acres of woods behind my home that have probably 40-50 black walnuts that are at least 12" minimum in diameter Of these, I would say about a third are 16-18" in diameter and a few are approaching 20-24" or larger in diameter. These are all "forest" trees and not "yard" trees hence...
