  2. Trees made of...plywood?

    You know how this works right? A lumberjack goes into the woods and cuts down a tree which is then sent to a mill where it is cut up, sliced and diced and sent to a plywood manufacturing plant where it is glued up, pressed together, squared up and sent out to the lumberyard where I went to buy...
  3. Christmas Ornaments

  9. wood spirits

    Some times when a tree grows in the right spot in the woods it's growth rings can capture an event or an object that either occurred or made an impression upon the same spot in the distant past. Oh Yes, just ask anyone that agrees with me on this and I'm sure they will back me up. So anyway I...
  10. Garden Bench

    The barn at my friend's family farm collapsed 70 years after it was built. I took them up on the offer of a truck load of wide planks and beams. The wood was extremely weathered, and it took several passes through the planer to clean up it up. It turned out to be cedar. In the end, I was...

    Howdy all, This recent ice storm that hit western North Carolina caused my neighbors Leyland Cypress trees to fall into my yard. We'll be cutting the trees away and probably have quite a bit of wood from them. Can I use the wood for anything?? I'm a novice woodworker and not real knowledgable...
