  1. Flowering Cherry and Alder Cane

    Not a lot to say really, I've been making canes for myself for a couple years and started selling them on Etsy back at the end of November. This is one I recently completed. This cane has a handle made of flowering cherry that I got from a pile of free wood lying next to the street. Don't...
  2. Universal Miter Saw Stand Conversion

    I had a very annoying, space consuming, cumbersome Delta Universal Miter Stand (model 50-155). Using free pallets, I made the laminated top to mount the saw, and a few 2×4s to build the stand. I took the wheels, axel, and infeed/outfeed rollers from the Delta unit and attached them accordingly...
  3. Reclaimed pallet wood cutting board (mostly white and red oak)

    The series for this project - here is quite in-depth, so I won't recreate it here. I'll just sum up… I got a stack of slats from a pallet from a local bearing shop all cut up nicely in a stack of 14"-16" pieces. Sorting them, I found many that appeared to be kinds of oak. I ran these over the...
  4. live edge bowls

    these are my second and third attempts at live edge turning. This Maple I got from someone cutting down two trees, I got there and the tree guys were chipping it all, I saved a pick up truck full from being chips, now I get to make wet ribbons!!!
  5. Folding Pine Chair & Table

    I had a ton of these 1 " x 1" pine sticks from a local mill. They put them in a dumpster with a big FREE sign on it. So I took as many as I could. Every day there was more of them. I don't know what they were for but I have had many uses for them. This just one.
  6. Switchback Bookshelf

    I was looking at bookshelves to build for my daughter's first apartment and came across this: Switchback bookcase and showed it to her. She loved it, so I told her when she moved out I'd make it. Well a few months later she's out and I reversed the design in Photoshop and Illustrator to make...
  7. Firewood & Pallet Nightstands

    My wife wanted night stands. I didn't want expensive box store junk. At the end of the day (well, year), I spent $10 for the drawer pulls and used glue, stain and poly that I already had. The wood itself was free. The darker wood is stained pallet wood, and the yellow wood is osage orange I...
  8. First Pen I've turned!

    It's simple, my aunt gave me an old lathe so I tried my hand at a couple of pens. Purple heart wood, I gave it to my wife and she loves it. I like to think its because I made it for her but it maybe just because its purple, she just smiles when I bring it up. Thanks for looking.

  9. Mr Wood Recycler

    Yes, maybe a box spring headed to the dump & I know it is "junk". But the first time I tore apart a box spring I realized that you could get a fair amount of rough pine this is the latest box spring I tore down. This wood is handy for jig & backing on projects. The best thing is it is free.
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello All, I have a question for all you festool users. I am planning on buying a festool rotex 125 sander and I was curious about where to get replacement sanding discs. Due to the unique design of festools dust collection I am wondering if I would be stuck buying ALL replacement sanding...

    For those LumberJocks here in North East Florida (Jacksonville) If you would like some freshly cut Sweet Gum for turning my neighbor just had a large one cut down and it's curbside . PM me for directions if you want it; he doesn't mind as long as you keep the pile neat.
  12. Wood & Lumber
    I recently signed up to a few "freecycle" groups close to where I live and there are tons of people just giving away great wood. Maple, Black Walnut, Oak, etc. For the most part, its, you cut it, you haul it, you can have it. If you are in the market for some free wood, albeit sometimes...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    Just wondering how many LJ's seek out and use free wood as I do. My day job is working in a shipping dept. of a valve manufacturer. Needless to say everything has to be palletized,and I occasionally run across really beautiful wood that's been used to make these, and so often some of these...

    HUGE Eucalyptus score Sheesh. Good thing I have a truck now. I saw a note on craigslist today (online classifieds) that a guy had put "10 to 15 more" eucalyptus logs out in the alleyway behind his house. LA is all blocks split in half by access alleys big enough to drive 2 cars through...

    At last, a resawing jig! I got 2 1" Timberwolf blades from Suffolk Machinery Corp. - 2TPI and 3TI - several months ago, and have been dying to try them out ever since. In that time I had several more projects, mom's 10-day long yearly visit, my best friends' wedding, a project I built for that...

    Walnut Wood - I just need to know... Does anyone else - when working with black walnut - think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I'm cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don't really have a...

    a thin, fig dish test This is from nearly a month ago. I'm behind on my adventures. Chucking something properly in a lathe takes a little bit of thought and prep work. I only had about an hour after work, but was in the mood to learn a bit more. In this test, I simply wanted to see if I could...

    Rockler 25-Piece HSS Brad Point Bit Set BLERG! I bought these last weekend, 6 days ago now, for $40. I tend to stock up on 50%-off items I really want in their continuous stream of sales, but while at the store to take advantage of a $15 coupon (>$50 purchase), I saw these. They weren't on...

    2 species of branches found in my green waste bin - what are they? I've had quite a weekend here in LA with the free wood gathering. It's laughable to you folks on farms, or out in the deep woods with harvestable lumber all around you, but here, we have to beg for our scraps, or put down hard...
