  1. Skiff Rocker for my granddaughter

    I built this Rocker for my granddaughter. Now that she is older she keeps stuffed animals in it. Great family air loom.
  2. My Poor Man's Solar Kiln

    Going to try drying this load of cypress as best I can. I have a 48" attic fan blowing directly on it. The lumber was fresh cut a week ago. Using a moisture gauge I saw moisture fall 10-20 percent in only two days using this method. The daytime temps are running in mid 90's. My suspicions are...

  4. Lumber Air Drying Fixture

    I've been air-drying rough cut green lumber for many years with my shop-made fixture. When wood is kiln dried, it is stacked and stickered with huge concrete weights on top. As the wood dries the concrete keeps the stack compressed to control twisting of the boards. I designed this fixture...
  5. Wood & Lumber
    Hello out there, I'm in the process of acquiring some bartlett pear logs from an orchard that is being replanted. I'd like to get some feedback on a few different issues: 1. Does anyone know of any band saw mill operators in the San Francisco bay area? 2. Any input on how best to mill the...
  6. Wood & Lumber
    We have roughly 1,500 board feet to sticker and air dry. 900 Black walnut, 300 Pine and 300 Hemlock. Obviously my first concern is the Black Walnut and I can part with some of the BF of Pine and Hemlock if needed. I am trying to calculate how many stickers I will need and how large a pile I...

    Dehumidifier Kiln Most of you are not going to turn on as large a scale as I do so you are not going to need as large a facility as I use. I am going to talk about what I call a coffin kiln. By enclosing an area under a wall mounted work bench about the size of a coffin you will be able to...
  9. Woodturning
    Hello fellow jocks, I am making a vessle for my father for his 60th birthday, he is sick with cancer and this gift is very important to me. I've only made a couple segmented turnings so I'm still learning how and in what order to do things. At this point (as you can see in the pictures) The...
  10. Wood & Lumber
    My name is George and I am wondering if there is a market in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina to dry lumber for local woodworkers? I have a solar dry kiln that holds 4,000 board feet of lumber that was constructed about 17 years ago. The kiln has not been used for many years and it's in...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Anyone with experience?? I currently have a red oak tree down in my yard and have access to a friend with a wood mizer that is able to cut the log into boards for a small fee. He tells me there are approximately 800-1000 bf in what I've got laying on the ground. I have the space to store it...
