  1. Two quick bookcases

    I made these two bookcases when I was really big on two tones of wood being used together. Lumber is box store pine, stain is minwax. I thought it was kind of cool to run the vertical support through each shelf and then pin it with a dowel on the edge. That actually turned out to be quite the...
  2. Trash Can Holder

    This is a trash can holder that i made for my aunt for a commission. its made out of sycamore, which is a wood that i would not recommend. its a challenge to work with and not overly hard but its not something i would recommend. i went over all the construction and everything on my blog. the...
  3. Farm Table

    A large oak tree limb fell on our farm during a storm 4 years ago. At the time I used my Alaskan attachment to mill it into boards and this past year I finally made a small kitchen table from it as a Christmas gift for my wife. My first table top with breadboard ends, my first turned table...

  7. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am reposting this as the pictures in the original post got lost during Marc (thewoodwhisperer's) website reshuffle, and some have asked for details of the Alaskan Jig I used in this process. ========== Sometimes, while chatting to woodworkers, I mention that I have rescued a few (metric)...

    This is a repost of two previous posts as the pictures in the originals were lost during a website reshuffle, and some people have recently expressed an interest in the design. ========= This was my first attempt, and is the jig shown in my other posts. I still use it, but there are some...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Rockler has a good buy on this set of driver bits so I thought I'd ask to see if anyone has used them and if they were worth ordering?? Rockler has a free shipping promo going on now, so it would be a good time to order...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Gents, I'm about to embark on my 1st Alaskan Sawmill. Unfortunately I haven't found any good used saws so am probably going to have to buy new. The Stihl 460R with a 32" bar is what I am eyeing. Should I just buy the powerhead from my Stihl dealer or should I buy the bar and chain as well. I'd...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So I decided to invest some money in an Alaskan mill and have had some fun over the past month. Up in AR right now visiting the in-laws and milled up this beast… wild cherry. I got (7) 2" slabs that are 24-28" wide and 9' long. My biggest problem is I don't really know what to build with it...
  12. Blogs
    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...

    Slabbing Small Logs Yesterday Yesterday we had bad weather, so I had a gap to do some work in the shop instead of being outside helping my wife erect the new pasture fence. A job that has taken a back seat for a while was to slice up some salvaged wood for final drying and also for sending...

    Milling Lumber from 4 large Bradford Pear Trunks Hi everyone! My name is Will and I live in the upstate of SC and among other thinks I'm an amateur woodworker and aspiring lumber-miller. This is my first post on Lumberjocks but I've been following some folks' projects and the forums for a year...

    Google Sketchup and Design Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in "Chainsaw Mill" into Google and...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Sometimes, while chatting to woodworkers, I mention that I have rescued a few (metric) tons of wood of various species from going to waste. This is usually in log form, and most woodworkers ask how I make it usable. Well, I mill it myself, with my self-built Alaskan mill. Several people...

    Further to my post "Rescued Wood - Norfolk Pine" at http://lumberjocks.com/topics/6665 here are some pics of the Wild Plum I also slabbed on the same day. This log is the bottom piece of a tree that blew over on the pavement (sidewalk for those who speak American) in front of our courts in June...

    As promised in my post http://lumberjocks.com/topics/6665#reply-67950, here is the design of my prototype version of the "Alaskan" Jig. Before going any further I have been advised to state a disclaimer. I wish I didn't need to, but with the way the world is going, I'd rather be safe than...
