  • Scrolling Wood

    Here's some aspen wood I bought from a local sawmill yesterday .Got it all sticker piled and weighted down for drying.
    It is half 4/4 and half 8/4. Not much good for clocks or really fine fretwork but great for shelves , keepsake and jewelry boxes, picture frames and miscelaneous small furniture projects.

      Jim;
      The general rule of thumb for air drying is one year to the inch. Howewver , that particular wood dries faster than some and I have good exposure to east, south and west sun and breeze on the edge of the hillside where it is piled so hopefully I'll be able to use some of the 1' ones on top by about september or october.

        Here's what my view over the valley looks like when the woodpile isn't in the way  
        But then , if I look out my shop window I get the same view so I guess  all is well.

          Hi Bill,
          I am glad you found your way over here this is a good forum. Have you ever used P S Wood bandsaw blades for resawing? They say that they are the best thing since sliced bread.

            Oldjoat;
            I have never used PS Wood bandsaw blades but I sure like the Tufftooth brand.
            Are PS Wood blades available in Canada? If so, do you have a website link to them?
            I'd like to compare specs and prices.

                But Wait.... There's More

                This is what I have to put up with when looking out my shop window at different times of the year.

                  Bill,
                  P S Wood's web address is www.pswood.com I was there and read about their blades. How do you put up with that ugly view OHwell someone has to do it. Glad it's you and not me you lucky stiff. I look out my window and all I see is 2 miles of farm field and it's as flat as a pancake.

                    Thanks for the link;
                    I find those prices very high if they are in US funds plus shipping to Canada. I get Tufftooth silicon thin kerf blades for a LOT less than that.
                    So you're a flatlander...  So is one of my sons that lives in Saskatchewan. I was kidding my grandson about getting him a tobogan and he had no idea what I was talking about

                      Bill,
                      Where do you get Tuff Tooth Blades? Do you have a web site for them? On that PS Wood blade A guy I know seen them ripping a 4'x4'x 2' oak board. When the guy was done cutting he told them to touch the blade and it was cold. I just thought this was worth looking in to.

                        Here's where I get the Tufftooth blades.
                        http://www.tufftooth.com/

                        From what I have read on general WW forums, the Tufftooth and the PS Wood blades are of equal quality. The prices for Tufftooth are all in Canadian funds.

                          Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                          Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                          Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                          My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                          I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                          Was it a good idea.....?...

                          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
