  1. 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...
  2. 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.

    Candidates for my Timberking 1220 I've been walking around our tree line today. Looking for some likely prospects for sawlogs. Here's what I've got to work with. 6 big maples that are over 100 years old and starting to die. One of them is too decayed and hollow to cut for lumber, but it might...

    Quartersawn red oak - splitting a big log It's Been a while since I've split logs. When I was growing up, I lived in a farmhouse that was heated by a furnace and a fireplace. I cut, split, and stacked a lot of wood. I got 3 big red oak logs and one big sycamore log this week. All 4 are big...

    Setting Up My New Timberking 1220 I posted a project the other day about my wood gloat! My new Timberking 1220 came packaged in a crate made from 3 sheets of 1/4" plywood, a stack of 1X4's, 2 1×6's, and several 2×4's. The day I posted the project, I parked my trailer under a big maple tree in...

    New skill acquired, I welded a winch support stand for my sawmill I spent the day metal working… But it's going to make my woodworking easier. I needed a way to lift big logs onto my sawmill and to turn them while sawing. So, I took some steel channel material and some flat stock and welded...

The pictures are a little dark...
