  1. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey LJ Masters and Apprentices- Last weekend I was cruising through the hills of North Berkeley (beautiful drive btw) and passed by three large stumps outside a home. They set them next to their trash to be hauled off, so I threw them in the back of my truck to use one as a splitting block to...
  2. Wood & Lumber
    A beaver took down this tree. I'm curious what kind of tree it might be so I can decide if I want to mill it up. It's from the metro area of Minnesota. It's during the winter i Don't know what the leaves look like. There is leaf buds which I thought was weird because it's February. The bark on...
  3. Wood & Lumber
    Anybody know what type of wood this is? The table tops are sanded down and the wood is slightly softer than average if I had to guess. Think it might be maple, but I'm new to identifying wood grains. Thanks!

    I got my hands on a pair of old church pews, but I'm not sure what wood it is. Can anyone help ID it? [Below] I scraped and sanded a piece of one of the boards to get a look at it. I have a few suspicions of what it might be, but I'm no wood specialist. One of the reasons I got these pews is...

    Hi folks, i got my new milwaukee 5615-20 router a couple of weeks ago with a fixed base and a plunge base, 1.75 hp. I've used it and like it and also got a rockler benchtop router table for it. So in the big case that the router came with was this part, that I have no clue what it is for. It...

    For the past couple of days I've been poking around the internet looking for a website that shows both tree identification and the look of the lumber inside the tree. I've been able to find several sites that have a very nice collection of one, or the other, but not both. I don't need...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    The fora are full of stories of borrowed tools returned in less than stellar condition if at all. My father had very few tools and would travel from job to job with a carpet bag with a few scribes, hammer and his 4' scale in hand. One person borrowed his 4' scale and burned it in flux. He never...
  8. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    Hello All! While rumaging around in my wood, I saw a few of these boards. I love the grain pattern on them and I am just wondering what type of wood it is. (sorry, that last picture is not too clear) The wood came from an old bank barn, and it was resawn into 1×8s. Then I planed both...
  9. Hand Tools
    I've spent quite a few hours trying to identify the maker of this hand plane: , but I'm not sure. The only text I can find is "MADE IN U.S.A." I purchased it from a thrift store, so I don't know any of it's story or whether any parts have been replaced. My best guess is that it might be a...
  10. Hand Tools
    I found this in an old woodworker's shop. It is about 5 inches long. When you turn the long spindle the round collar at the front turns (very smoothly). Inside the collar is a round opening about 3/8" wide. The barrel says C-642 and Quincy Mass. I didn't note down the manufacturer. Thanks...

  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm an amateur and need help with a project. I found a very nice antique double roll-top desk that was strored and forgotten in the back of a garage for about 30 years. It's solid oak, well made, and in excellent condition. The only problem is, it's missing the legs. My question is… What...

  14. Hand Tools
    I've been going though my pile of hand planes for refurbishment. Found this one and can't identify it. I could use some help please. I've been thought the standard list of plane info sites. It's the size of a #3 Stanley, except it has a 2 inch iron. Japanning is good, solid frog, and in good...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    Hi people, Im in Australia and, although i do tend to enjoy wood products and features at home, i definitely do not classify myself as an expert in timber identification. I have come across a few pieces ranging in size that i from research up to this point have led me to believe that it is from...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    I picked up a few pieces of wood today, simply because I liked them and the price seemed good. I would probably have bought more if they were available! But, I don't know what they are. Any help? The second one in on the left may be luan, the seller thought. I wasn't interested in this piece...

  19. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Anyone know good web sites, references, contacts to help identify treated lumber, not new lumber which should be labelled, but salvaged wood that may be several decades old? Creosote is fairly obvious, but older CCA (copper chromium arsenic) treated wood is often not (newer looks greenish). Also...
