I don't sell wood, but a guy I used to work with when I was 19 in a stamping press shop, and I also watched him and my neighbor build a custom hot rod in the late 70's that toured the country and was in playboy magazine, wanted to build a table for him and his girlfriend's new condo in Chicago overlooking lake Michigan.  So I let him pick a slab, one of my widest ones by chance.  It was air dried, but I then had it kiln dried by another guy for him.  He decided to finish the cracking down the middle and split the slab into two pieces. It was pretty easy as there were ant nest/tunnels in the center of this slab. Not too bad, but it would all get filled. Then I flattened each half on my mill planer.  It started out at 8.5 feet long, but he cut it down to about 6 feet or so I think to fit the space best.  I helped glue up some live edge walnut boards to make the island you see to fill some of the space.  He wanted to work on it in his basement, but I warned him not to store it there due to moisture.  Well 8 months later he came back with them and I had to flatten them again as they cupped a bit from being down there for so long.  He took it from there.  It came out really nice I think!  Here's the car he build back then- he's very experienced in body and paint work so I knew the epoxy and finishing would be no problem for him.

Realized I did not share this years Christmas project. As always, I like to challenge myself with something new and decided to do a set of kitchen cooking utensils. I am the designated stirrerer in the kitchen and wanted some nice wooden spoons and spatulas.

The pedal box is made from ambrosia maple



 


The rest of these were made from Cherry (which was only air dried) and I think it is easier to work this way. I really like the feel of the handles and  my wifes favorite one is the strainer. It does work nice in that you can drain a pot with out having to dig out a colander.

Finnish sauna currently under construction.  Used the sound wood and some spalted red pine (non-structural) for framing lumber, some of the larger spalted planked out for siding or reserved for interior planking.  Had to make quick use of 2 trees killed by flood stress/pine bark beetle.  Rafters and some framing lumber are black spruce. Remainder of Black Spruce sawn 3/4 and reserved for battens/random lumber. A large jack pine made up majority of the siding planks and some of the plank roof decking.  This project is all happening off-grid with only a small generator to run the table and miter saw for edging and trimming.  Raw logs propped up and slabbed to point of portability in the woods using the chainsaw mill, finished for best use in camp.  Lots of blood, sweat and tears here!

Interior picture is my sauna at home completed 2 years ago.  Interior of this one will look similar, although balsam fir will likely be used for interior paneling along with some of the 3/4 spalted red pine held in reserve.

I'm confused, is your sauna finished or under construction? ;D :D :D

This one at my hunting camp is under construction.  The one at home is "completed," in the sense that it's fully functional, but still could use a few finishing touches that I never seem to find the time for, as seems to be the case with most of my projects.

This one is Finnish unfinished, unfinished. Considering Swedish Finish on some of the lumber in addition to the Japanese torch finish exterior. The one at home is Finnish, Unfinished, but finished finished exterior, and is kinda Finished.

Love them both - simple clean lines and let the wood do the talking. Great jobs!

This customer's project is not finished but it is coming along.  He is a former student of mine from the late 1990's.  He is building a gun room.  The ceiling has 1/4" steel so it is essentially a safe.  He specifically wanted knotty cypress so that it would not be boring so John and I sawed up some knotty cypress yard trees and dried them for him.  He came back yesterday and just about cleaned us out of 1 x 6 cypress.  The ceiling is done in red cedar.  He is machining tongues and grooves on all of the cypress.  The top set of cabinets all open upwards so that he can store long guns in cases rather than leaning them up in a corner.  I enjoy seeing the work that he does.

 

 

 

 

I am anxious to see it when he is finished.
