  1. WOOD ROTS, Will this sawmill rise again for the second time, PROJECTS AND VIDEO

    In this post I want to share one of the bigger projects of my life that has provided me with wood for my home and buildings and wood for the projects I enjoy building. The projects.. Three pictures of a Hope Chest I built for my daughter for graduation, I think High School but it didn't get...
  2. Let's eat!

    I love cooking as much as I enjoy eating. I made these kabob skewers yesterday, and got to try them out today. I'm not psychic, but I predict more of these in my future. I remember seeing people in Thailand cooking chicken satay skewed on 3 sticks, and got to thinking. This is what I've come up...
  3. Band Saw Milling Sled

    Inspired by, among other things, info I've found here at Lumberjocks, I finally broke down and built a sled for milling lumber on my band saw. It is dirt cheap, mud simple, and yields results that, while unlikely to earn me a cover shot on Fine Woodworking, mean I can turn firewood into...
  4. Tornado to Lumber

    We recently had a small f1 skip thru and it downed alot of good old growth Oak and Pecan. Here are some pics of one we harvested. It was down on the river bottom so we hooked up the trailer and loaded up the tractor with a front end loader and headed for the river. The gravel road going down...
  5. Wormy Chestnut Dining Table

    My latest table build, Dining table made from wormy chestnut. The top was made from reclaimed 2xs and the legs were 4×4 beams. They wanted the table to look as old as possible and chose to go with a top that looked like separate boards. I did this by putting a slight bevel on the boards before...
  6. Myrtle Bowl

    Got some wood from my Uncle. The deal was, a bunch of wood for a turned project. I think it turned out alright nice lidded bowl.
  7. Live edge coffee table

    This project was a first in several aspects. 1. This spruce tree was standing next to my wife's aunt's porch. The tree was dying and she decided to have it cut down. I asked her if I could have the logs from this and two other trees. 2. A fellow industrial arts teacher in a neighboring...
  8. Mesquite, a lot of it.

    Here are a couple of logs I cut the other day. Yes the background is desert, all 107 degrees of it. But don't worry, I finally put up a canopy for shade. The first slabs are roughly 38" wide at their widest point and 2" thick. The other log is around 10 feet. Only about 450 logs to go...
  9. Wood Glote, I love free wood...

    It's not high quality wood, and it wasn't free… But, I'm not going to waste a resource. I removed a bag of drywall screws that were holding everything together. Several 1×4's, and a few 1×6's plus 3 sheets of 1/4" construction grade plywood and a big 2×4 pine pallet were protecting my new saw...
  10. Mushrooms are growing

    My mushroom patch is growing. The one on the left grew from a green cherry log yesterday. The one on the right grew about 4 months ago. Its also cherry, hope one more grows this summer.
  11. Thanks, Harry...

    Hello. My name is Matt. These are my first woodworking "projects." The title of this post, is an homage to Harry Gerstner. One day, about 10 years ago, I saw a Gerstner tool chest for the first time and remember screaming on the inside, "WHAT IS THAT?!! I want one." Then I learned how proud Mr...
  12. Red Oak

    I thought I had posted this. This is my wood-Mizer sawmill with a Red Oak log being quarter/rift sawn. Needless to say I was much younger and lighter when the picture was taken.
  13. Garden Sawmill

    I needed a flat packed/portable sawmill for two reasons: On one hand I needed to process my wood in my garden On the other hand I needed to process logs 1m wide in my family property. This answers these two needs. I used a metal railing retrieved from the recycling centre and pine. I did an...
  14. Oak log to dart board

    I was given the opportunity to cut up a couple oak trees for lumber. The tree service must have thought they were getting cut for fire wood so they did not cut for length. So what to do with some of the shorter stuff. I had one nice, round piece that was only 2' long but 2' dia so I cut it into...
  15. River wood totem

    My friend Cam and i went river hunting one day in his boat and we found this aged piece and i made this totem for fun and because the wood was in the water for so long when i carved it the wood already looks years aged making me very happy. I hope you enjoy this piece as much as i did making it...
  16. Art Display cabinet

    Here is my first post of projects. Sorry about the photos the lighting isn't great in the house. Anyhow this piece is made from maple and is finished with lacquer. The art is illuminated with warm led lights which gives the sunrise effect. Frosted glass and mortise and tenon construction.
  17. slate coasters for home owner

    Friend in Key West was given these coasters as a thank you for a visit. 4" square slate with a wire stand. The name is the house name, the eagle has to do with location. Laser engraved on my Ortur Master Engraver 2. Key fobs were added as a second. The font was Berkshire Swash.
  18. Crazy Legs

    This was made from some of the first wood we cut on our sawmill. I made this coffee table from two consecutive cuts of an acacia tree that I got from a landscaping friend. I flipped one piece to bookend match the two, ran the matching edges on the jointer, and joined them with glued up dowels. I...
  19. Making Lumber

    I had several trees that were starting to hand way too far over the house and needed to have them removed. There were a total of nine trees that needed to go. Of those nine, six were very nice 100+ year old white oaks.. We had someone come in and crane the trees out and it really opened the...
  20. 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...
