    Online Store for NCWW?

    A bit of Sad news

    A very good friend of mine was assigned to the wounded warrior barracks at Camp Lejeune after injury in Iraq. If there is interest I can try to coordinate directly with the unit. If it's in direct support of veterans and no profits will be generated by our members I will do anything I can to help.

    Krenov Style Wooden Hand Planes - Anybody ever used them? If so, how do they perform?

    Rick, i wasn't refering to transitional iron/wood planes, I was referring to solid wood planes made in the 1800s by companies like Sandusky. These were all wood, typically Beech, with Cast Steel Blades. The designs were typically modeled after the English Planes of the day. You'll find that...

    Krenov Style Wooden Hand Planes - Anybody ever used them? If so, how do they perform?

    Like most tools thier performance is based on how well they are made and what components you out in them. I can tell you that keeping a wooden hand plane tuned up incredibly easy and they perform at least as well, in my opinion better, than thier cast iron counterparts (specifically antique...

    Tree Lean versus Reaction Wood

    Scott, That's totally new info for me, learn something new everyday. I've milled a bunch of larger branches (10"-18") before but always ended up using the lumber to make turning blanks because the train patterns and color variety were outstanding. Endless If you do cut down and quartersaw...

    Tree Lean versus Reaction Wood

    I had a walnut tree that was leaning at least 25-30 degrees off vertical. I milled the boards and had absolutely no problems with stability. If you're that worried about it mill it thicker than you need so you can flatten any twists or bends after it dries. If I were you I'd quartersaw the Beech

    Why does 8/4 cost more than 4/4?

    As always a wealth of information. I've learned the hard way how much slower thick cuts are compared to thinner. Lover the past month I've sawn a few hundred board feet (It's taking me forever but as you know chainsaw milling isn't fast) of 12/4 Quartersawn Pecan. So far it's dropped maybe 1-2%...

    Cypress for exterior house trim?

    I happen to have a very large (36" diameter at the 30' mark) down on my property. My plan is to pull it out of the woods in 14'-16' lengths and mill it.
