  • is there a source for hardwood rounds

    Like the basswood rounds only in hardwood?
    I saw some projects I'd like to make out of hardwood rounds.
    I wish I could find an old fallen tree in the woods and get someone to cut me some rounds off of it......
    is it possible to do that and would it be suitable to make projects out of?

    Yes you can cut rounds yourself, but remember that you are dealing with end grain.

      Catlyn, tell me the dimensions that you are looking for.... Are you talking stock like bowl blanks, or more like dowels?

        I believe she is referring to the rounds you can get at some craft stores that are 5-6 inches around and about 1 " thick sometimes with the bark still attached.

        If you have some cut off a branch or a tree you will need to let them cure for about a year and be sure you treat them so they do not check/crack. If the limb is really dry you may not have to cure it for quite as long.

            I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

            Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

            The VacuFlo actually uses...

            I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
            Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....

            For something like a table saw the volume of air moved is much more important than whether a good vacuum is produced....
