  3. Come on Summer

    My first chair. Adirondack. All cedar, no finish. I've never had good luck with outdoor projects in our weather. The plans came from Woodcraft. Full size, easy to figure out even for me. I liked the fact that the chair is adjustable for sitting or reclining. I wanted a drink holder...
  4. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm looking for reference material on building log furniture. A buddy of mine asked me to build him a table for his camp, and I'd like to make it out of pine logs with a slab top. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any decent information on drying logs specifically for use with log furniture...

    My neighbor cut down a small ash tree today. I got two limbs that I would like to slice up for coasters sets. I want to avoid checks and cracks. Do I cut it green or give it time to dry? If I cut it green, how should I dry the wood? Any thoughts on this question would be appreciated. Jim

We lost a branch from our 25' holly tree and have cut...

    Hi all! Long story short, I'm drying green wood for the first time. It's been in my garage for about a month and with the holidays, I just got around to restacking it in a better location. I stickered it right away and 2 weeks later put a box fan on low from about 6 feet away. This is how it's...

  9. Woodturning
    A friend of mine gave me a few lengths of cherry and maple tree. I have cut them into sections, cut out the pith and sealed all surfaces except the bark side with two coats of Titebond 3. I wondered about putting them on the shelves in my small 10×12 greenhouse. Any advice would be helpful. I...

    Clamping Cauls - Making & Using Clamping cauls are superior to dowels and biscuits for aligning panel glue ups. No, they don't align the ends of the boards, but biscuits have too much play to do so, and have too much play to align the board edges. Dowels will align the ends, but you need one...
