    Charlotte Walnut Run to Youngsville - It's a bust. :(

    I am disappointed to say that the lumber run didn't work out. First I want to say that everything nice that people have been saying about Charlie is all TRUE. :wsmile: He's a really nice and fair guy and he's very up front about the wood. No issues there. Here are the the issues I faced...

    WTB Rough Cut 6/4 Oak

    Hi guys, I'm wanting to buy some rough cut oak to re-deck my trailer. Obviously doesn't need to be of furniture grade since it's only for a trailer. I'll need 8" or 12" wide boards (or something I can make 8") as the deck is 96" wide. I'll either need: Twelve 18' and eight 10' boards OR...

    Need a little curly maple.

    Anyone near Lincolnton/Charlotte have some curly maple they'd be willing to sell. Just need a couple board feet for a picture frame or two. Called KS in hickory and they are out and I just don't have enough on hand. Any thickness will do as I only need 1/4 so I can resaw whatever I need. I just...

    Sawing up some cedar.

    Thought some of you guys might be interested in seeing the "old school" circular sawmill in action.:gar-La; My buddy called me today and said he got a cedar to cut up. I am wanting to do a couple of interior walls of my shop (the bee room portion) in cedar lap/mountain siding. It was a nice log...

    A little CL score (and a little gloat)

    I have been looking for another router to use as a hand held router. The 3.25 HP Freud scares me a little out of the table. :saw: I saw an add on CL yesterday for a DeWalt DW618B3 router kit. Said never used in box for $150. Also noticed it was a second post and was $200 before. So I went...

    How many board feet?

    Ok, so the LOML now wants a country hutch. She found one she likes in Fine Woodworking magazine. She mentioned she'd like it in mahogany, so... I'd like to be pretty close board feet if I do it in a wood I have to buy. Would also take suggestions on other species that would look good. I...

    Community Dust Collector???

    What do you guys think? We could all "pitch in" get this bad boy and work out a deal with the local authorities to use the sewer lines or something to connect ALL our shops :rotflm: 65,000 CFM should run a "few shops" right? :gar-La; Or better yet, it's on wheels... could accompany the Good...

    First Project

    Well, I finally did "something" in the shop. :wsmile: My wife wanted a cabinet to store jars of stuff she cans. I had some oak lying around that came from an old log at my buddy's mill, so I figured I would give it a shot. It's not "fine furniture" but she likes it and it's square and level...

    Old Iron Gloat

    I posted the other day asking about the Delta 28-350 20" Band saw. I read A LOT of info on the old iron site about the machine and everyone (at least there) seems to really like the machine, so I figured I'd go take a look. Well, from what I had been reading this machine was in real good...

    Anyone have experience with Delta 28-350 BS?

    I have a lead on a Rockwell-Delta 28-350 20" bandsaw. Wanted to ask if anyone has one, has had their hands on one or knows about them. The man is asking $600 for it. Says it's in ex condition, but I have not gone to look yet. I've been pining over a band saw for a while now and just last...

    Stumbled On a Few Planes

    Went home to PA for a family reunion and while there stumbled on a yard sale and picked up a few tools. Three of which are bailey/stanley planes. A No5 , No 5 1/4 and a 5 1/2. Don't really know the value of old hand planes but figured I wasn't doing too bad at $20 each. Don't know how much use...

    NEW Dewalt DW735 Planer $350

    The below add is actually for a Dewalt DW735. I picked up a router from the guy today and saw the planer. It's still packaged up NEW. The box is tore up but all the parts and the planer are still in the plastic in the styrofoam packaging. It will be one heck of a deal for someone looking. The...
