    Longworth style chuck

    I've got the commercial one and it does work, you have to be low RPM and very gentle. I've lost some bowls and I would not recommend it. Jam chuck is the way to go!

    Sawmilling lumber for my new home

    I use anchorseal on hardwoods but I didn't think I would need that on pine and poplar 2x boards. I don't want to waste any so thanks for the tip!! I will be using white oak for the floor joist.

    Sawmilling lumber for my new home

    I'm first building a 36'wide by 84' long pole barn to house the sawmill on one end and the middle 36'x36' area will be dried in for my shop tools and the last 36'x36' section I'll dry the lumber with vertical boards about an inch apart so the air can circulate thru. I'll probably come back in a...

    Sawmilling lumber for my new home

    If it comes from the same land that the house is built on, no inspection stamp needed. You do have to show the trees to the home inspector first, before you cut them down

    Sawmilling lumber for my new home

    With the recent increase in lumber cost, I've decided to cut my own lumber on my sawmill and air dry it. Should I be spraying it with something to keep mold from developing on it?

    Composite decking

    I'm replacing the deck at my beach cottage and I was thinking of using Trex from Lowes. Anybody have any experience using this stuff or other brands? I'm concerned about the constant sun and salt that it will be getting in that harsh environment.

    New way to quickly dry green bowls

    wonder if it might be even better to let it dry with the fan for 2 days?? Or even 3. I'd like it to be below 10% at least

    Making my trees into shop flooring?

    To transport and cut and dry and mill and bring back that in flooring, I think you would be way ahead, both in time and money, to buy some surplus flooring on CL. Just sayin'

    Writing on walnut

    just got around to turning 4 bowls yesterday and put anchorseal on them. I also cut a 6" section off of 1 of the larger pieces and I ran out of time but I'll go back and mark and cut it into sections on the bandsaw. This will be my first time turning wood this way. I'll post some pictures when I...

Then I'll I should be able to turn it and get the grain as even circles, top to bottom with dark wood at the bottom and light colored sapwood on top. Saw...

    Rolling Pin Plans

    I saw some plans for a combo rolling pin and paper towel holder about 6 months ago and now I cannot remember where I put that magazine. I believe it was tapered on both ends and had contrasting wood on the ends. Any ideas??

    Pen mandrel problems

    The pen mandrel was easily tightened into the talon chuck and I made sure it was straight by sliding the tail stock up to the other end. Works great! Now it's time to get busy and make some Christmas presents!
