Making some T&G
« on: May 06, 2021, 03:01:43 PM »
I took a couple of loads, about 1200bf, of mixed hardwood out to Jacobís to run through his moulder. 
This is mostly red and white oak along with elm, hickory, maple, and sycamore. 
I will use this in my workshop as wall paneling in the bench room. 





 



 

Itís always nice to see the aged, weathered boards turn to a beautiful stack of finished lumber.  8)
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

That's great. Good looking stuff!
I recently did the same thing in my shop but I must have done something wrong because there was a lot more time involved and an extra few dozen steps in the process. :)

Cool!  Is that second operation belt sanding on one side?
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Yes thatís a belt sander. Not sure what grit it was, though?

Something not shown was everything went through an edger before the moulder.

Does all wood need to be edged before the molder? Or does it depend on the machine?

It definitely needed to go through the edger.  I ended up with three different widths. 3 1/2, 5, and 7 inches. 
Those scraggly looking boards looked really good after the edger. I think they would have been just as nice on the wall as the T&G. 

This ended up being about being about 1 1/2 of my stacks. Not that that is an official unit of measure! :laugh:

After three coats of poly, the paneling done.

I have been asked repeatedly by everyone that has ever visited my house, "What are you going to do with all that wood?!?"

"I'm going to use it in my shop some day!" I always replied. :D :D

Well, this is just about 1 1/2 stacks of my stash. Now I'm asking myself, "what are you going to do with all this wood?!?"

I didnít put a tape measure to it. My guess is a strong 3/4. Maybe 13/16. Iíll measure in a little while. 
Random widths 4, 6, and 8 rough lumber.

Teakwood,
I toenailed them through the tongue right into the studs with a finish nailer.

The bottom board I used a finish head screw along the bottom edge and a toenail nail in the tongue. I thought the screw was needed to keep the bottom board tight in place as I was banging away on the next rows. 
I also used a laser level to shoot the bottom row horizontal and held the bottom row about 3/4Ē off the floor. 
I do plan to install a base board, But wanted to put a finish coat on the floor first.

That is a beautiful job my man, so now 2 questions;  1 what will this room be for and 2 what will you do with the rest of the wood?  I hope it is stored indoors.

This will be my ďbench roomĒ in my workshop. Itís where most of my time is spent during the dayÖ and night. 

I did have some extra T&G because I decided to leave lots of the defects in the boards. So I was able to squeeze more sqft from the pile. The remainder will move along into the next projects, I guess. 

If you are asking about the rest of my rough lumber stash?? It will remain stacked outdoors under the roofing metal. At some point, I do plan to add a lean-to shed onto the building for sheltered storage.
