  1. Walnut table

    I apologize for the grainy pictures, I am having camera troubles. Just a couple pieces of old nasty limb wood I sawmilled after a storm earlier in the year. I jointed a live edge book match for the top, made a simple but somewhat interesting base and there you have it. I really tried to get a...
  2. Cherry kitchen

    Cherry kitchen with 14' ceilings. Notice the tall risers for the crown so that the customer could display her decorative plates. Top of crown is about 12' up, used the tall ladder for this install. The tall door to the left of the fridge is actually a standard 30" walk through door into a closet...
  3. A first in a couple ways.

    This project was the first thing I ever carved (made it this week). I have had a set of carving tools forever, but never had the inclination to use them. Carving is a skill I don't really think I can master for whatever reason. This is also the first thing I ever named, I know many name their...
  4. Scrap wood chair

    It started out with these 2 (well 4 actually, they were busted) oak scraps I had been kicking around. I did not want to throw them out. They had figure and spalt. I just did not know what to do with them. Then I figured, butterfly them together and see what strikes me. I was still stumped...
  5. The vast majority of my wood working "projects" are like this.

    I am just a hack woodworker, but I make my own wood. Well, I guess I don't make it, I just mill it. I really enjoy it. I would rather on most days just make lumber than anything from it really, I'm weird like that. I milled some decent walnut today 24" wide 5/4" live edge slabs 10 feet long...
  6. More firewood walnut furniture

    I went and dug this slab out of the barn yesterday and made this little bench, put the final coat of finish on it just now (still using a junk camera, sorry) The legs are simple, the ones under the crotch flair are wider than the ones on the other end. The stretcher is just 1/2 lapped in. I was...
  7. Quick and dirty BBQ table

    So I had some odd pieces of wood (redbud tree top and a hard maple slab) kinda laying around in my way. I decided to make a 20 minute table to use grilling in the yard. (After sawmilling 700 bft of oak in the heat today). I am going to let it weather up some then give it a flood coat of epoxy...
  8. Wood & Lumber
    This post probably doesn't add a lot of value to the site, but my wife doesn't appreciate how awesome this is so I'm gloating to you guys instead. I have a coworker that had a smallish (12-13") cherry tree down on his property and he asked if I wanted it since I was into woodworking. I jumped...

    A small victory in urban logging (part 1) I am an "Urban Logger". I only mill trees from town. There is a reason for this. I am a tree hugger (yea really) Not the stereotype, insert your own mental picture here, that have given that title a negative connotation. BUT, I do love trees. I think...

    Storm damaged tree milling (picture heavy) I have not milled all the trees that were dropped off here after the severe weather we have been having the last couple weeks (some days I cannot mill because of heavy rain). I thought I would start a blog series about what goes on around here at the...

    Slabbing Small Logs Yesterday Yesterday we had bad weather, so I had a gap to do some work in the shop instead of being outside helping my wife erect the new pasture fence. A job that has taken a back seat for a while was to slice up some salvaged wood for final drying and also for sending...

    Tree removal and Slabbing Hello All! When we moved into our house 8 years ago the stood a decent size Water Oak / Red Oak tree. A Crape Myrtle was also there. Eight years later the Oak was covering the entire front of the house. To make matters worse, it was hard for grass to grow under the...

  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    Gentlemen (or ladies). I am cutting out a handle for a slide out shelf I am placing in a Cherry cabinet. I have real bad past experience with trying to cut out similar shapes in wood with my router and router table. The last time that I tried, the workpiece flew across my shop…. I have been gun...

    Hey folks, I need some advice… I am looking to upgrade to a bigger lathe and was wondering what you might know about the Jest 1442EV or the Jet 1642EV… Have you use either? I know the specifications on each but if you have one or the other what do you consider some of it's strengths or...
