  1. Waterfall cut console tables

    I cut down the trees and use my chainsaw mill and small wood shop to process the lumber in to different types of projects I made two of these.
  2. Walnut, Cherry, Pine, and Maple Keepsake Box

    This was my first (successful) attempt at finger joints. I think it turned out pretty well, i made the joints stick out a little bit for extra affect. This is completely made out of pallet wood scrounged up from work. I had fun just pulling this one together. I think the cherry and pine go well...
  3. Kidcraft Vintage Kids Kitchen Look-alike

    This is what my wife really wanted to get my daughter for Christmas. http://www.kidkraftinc.com/toys-and-playsets/kitchens/kitchens/53173 The second picture was a happy little elf on Christmas Morning! So i made this version almost entirely out of 1/2" MDF. The only things that aren't MDF...
  4. Bee hive

    Hi, this a bee hive i have been working on, again like most of my stuff not high quality. The reason is i use only hand tools as you may or may not know and without the proper tools, while it still can be done, it is harder to acheive perfection. It is proving especisally difficult for me to...

  6. Florida Chainsaw Mill

    The Florida Chainsaw Mill came to me in a fit of inspiration as I was looking at the flat concrete slab of the driveway outside my workshop. Who needs to go carrying a flat reference surface into the woods to do slabbing… Alaskan mill users, that's who. In Florida, a less backbreaking method...
  7. Pine/Barnwood Pie Safe

    Pie safe built of pine with barn wood corner posts. 42"W x21"D x 67"H. Mostly hand cut mortise and tenon construction but there are a few countersunk screws with pine plugs. Finished with BLO, Zinsser's amber shellac and a coat of Johnson wax.
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    LJ,s I'm looking to upgrade from my 50 cc Poulan Pro to a Husqvarna with a bit more power? I'm looking for a fellow LJ who might have used this set up, and/or opinions on the quality and durability of these saws. I know this is somewhat under-powered but it may be what I can manage? I've...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with one of these. I have several wooded acres with some good oak and cherry trees. It would be really nice to be able to go out and harvest my own lumber for free but I'm skeptical of how well these work, and how much effort it takes to produce...
  10. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    Greetings, 1. For those of you who do milling, what kind of $$ did you make when you stared out? 2. How should I figure out if there is a demand for hardwood lumber in my area? Who should I check with? 3. Do you have to have a license to sell hardwood? I live in N. Louisiana and am...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    I've got a ~24" boxelder in the backyard that has reached the end of its life and is coming out. I'd love to be able to do something with the wood, but the way the backyard is laid out with my house, the neighbors, and woods behind it, there is no way to get any heavy equipment in there. Which...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    My neighbor recently had a mature oak tree removed from his back yard. I somehow managed to convince him to leave the trunk so I could try my hand at milling. So after spending a good deal of money, I'll now have an Alaskan Chainsaw mill powered by a Stihl MS 362 saw with a 28" bar. This gives...

    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...
