  2. Shoe Rack

    This was a simple project that I made one afternoon a few months ago. I really needed some organization in the closet, and this was the solution. And because it was going to be hidden in the closet, I chose to go with MDF. Also, because I had a lot of it in the garage. This project also gave me...
  3. Beneath the veneer

    Only reason I am showing this is that years ago I stripped back a French polished sideboard only to reveal rubbish wood, crappy joinery and lots of fill. So after hours of work I was left with a sideboard only fit for painting and leaving in the garage. So this old table belonged to my wifes...

    I was near San Antonio last weekend (I was playing in a volleyball tournament for really old guys) and I stopped at a firewood vendor and picked up some mesquite firewood and a stump. I have 20 pieces of firewood about 12×3 x 3 and a stump that is 18 inches tall and 14 inches at the bottom and...

    I have some Big Leaf Maple burl that I slabbed up a month ago and they are about 2" thick. I have them stickered and air drying. On the majority of the burls I will want to remove the bark to expose the wild edge on it. Is it best to remove the bark now or after it has dried. What is the...

    Hello - I have been reading everything i can find about air drying black walnut. We are clearing a site for a new home and had to take down a black walnut. My nephew owns a sawmill and has offered to kiln dry the wood, however I have read that air drying preserves the color best…. and I hate to...

    A "Mini" Series - up to present I'm posting these pictures as a means to get bloggin'…and, because I'm interested in milling and drying lumber (on a scale that I can accommodate - in the backyard). I'm also brand new at it, so it's just fun to share! I would have liked to have photos or video...

    In the beginning... Hello fellow LJ's, i just wanted to share this amazing find with ya'll since we all (more or less) share the same love of wood. A rancher pushed over this enormous bois d'arc tree to make way for a fence (of all things) anyway he gave a buddy and me free range to cut as...

    I just bought a couple hundred board feet of 8/4 cherry. Eventually I plan to make a dining room table from this. My question is I need specifics of air drying process. 1. I know it needs air flow and has to be stickered. 2. I plan to stack it with sticks on about 24" spacing. 3. It will be in...

    Finally had our American elm tree taken down this month after the signs of Dutch Elm disease were too blatant to ignore. Sad to see it go. Took it to a local mill that specializes in urban trees to have it milled (also picked up a couple of large silver maple logs from the tree service). I'm...
