  1. Shallow Bowl in Termite Spalted Pine

    This is my second large turning, approximately 18 inches by 4 inches. This was from the second of two trunk sections of a pine tree. The damage from the termites living in the wood is more evident, as is the spalting. I have identified the 4 types of spalting in this single piece of wood...
  2. Steamer Trunk

    I made this steamer trunk for my friend for his daughter last Christmas (2008). The plans came from Rockler,and so did the hardware kit. I used oak and walnut like the plans called for. The corners have splined miters, with walnut used for the splines. I wish I had seen Marc's podcast before I...

  5. Maloof style rocking chair.

    I made this chair with inspiration from several LJ's projects and the plans from Charles Brock. His plans, videos, and patterns were essential. Mostly it took patience, tools, and a lot of sandpaper. If you attempt this project I would advise you to just go ahead and order all the specialty...
  6. Wood & Lumber
    I am building a farm style table for my first house. I like working with reclaimed wood for the history and patina in it. I found this wood in my new basement. Exactly the size I wanted. My question is, do the holes mean termites once existed here? And, can I get away with using it after I...
  7. Wood & Lumber
    I discovered that I have termite damage to a number of slabs that I had in a commercial storage building for several months. Seems like I could still use some of the slabs if damage was not too great and if I were to kill any termites in the wood. As far as killing the termites, the slabs are...
  8. Finishing
    Can you use wood filler on a project like this? Some of my joins have bigger gaps than I would like and I'm not sure how to fix them. Second question, someone told me white wood isn't good for a picnic table. I guess rain + termites. I still wanted to finish the project though. Any advice on...
  9. Wood & Lumber
    I am trying to figure what is the most effective solution to use on reclaimed lumber. I had planned on purchasing boracare but considering the price with the amount of lumber we have I have been looking into other solutions for killing the wood burrowing bugs, termites, beetles and all other...

    Lumber for the Top One of the hardest things about building anything here is finding nice wood. It seems that if you want anything better than standard construction lumber, you're up the creek. That's bizarre in a country that does so much logging and has so much nice exotic wood (I guess...
  11. Blogs
    Do you Twitter? Being a high-tech guy by day, I find that I spend most of my time developing technology and not taking advantage of it. Doing woodworking, and even a little teaching woodworking (via videos), on the side, I am always looking to keep up with the latest trend. That being said...

    Termites in the woodpile Was splitting some firewood and noticed the stuff on the bottom had gotten a termite infestation….and I gotta admit I started thinking (maybe this should be a you might be a lumberjock if post) anyway, started to thinking "if I leave this for a while, the termites might...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    So I went and picked up about 60 bdft of cherry from a gentlemen that is selling all of his wood stock. I got home and while unloading it noticed some of the wood was spongey and crumbled along the edge of the wood. I also noticed little holes in the sides of some of these boards. My first...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    The title pretty much sums up my concerns. While I have been WW for ~4yr I only now just started resawing my own logs for usable wood. Question for those who have ACTUALLY dealt with this,... How do you control for the eventual termites, probably wood termites, that show up in your new...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have taken a few photos of some wood I have drying. It seems to have some kind of mite. I brushed the wood clean yesterday and you can see the piles of sawdust they have created in the pictures in this link: http://picasaweb.google.com/lloydus/Mites# Can anyone tell me what my recommended...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    In my years of falling trees and letting them dry for a few years before cutting up for woodworking projects, I've never seen anything like this! Those growths you see sticking up in these two photos? At first, I thought they were a fungus growing out of the bark, but they're not. As I looked...
