#curlymaple table delivered yesterday to my favorite "client" @nattayben
6000 square feet of space in the shop and still not enough room to complete the final touches of this table🤔 #furnituremaker #cabinetmaker #finewoodworking #interiordesign #custommade #daughter #clintonville

Ten years ago today I hosted a gathering at my shop for the local woodturning club. Here I am parting off the rough edges of a chunk to create a bowl.
Somebody was commenting that the parting tool included in the McNaughten set of coring tools was useless. I showed 'em.
The old guy in the corner (Jerry Meyer)is one of my partners in @livedgashwood
Looked pretty good in 2008

I have started another IG account @livedgashwood
Along with four partners , we are starting a new business to sustainably harvest and process trees into finished products. We are centered on a 550 acre farm with huge stands of dying ash. We have 700 logs down already, a 13,000 square foot workshop, 3 Woodmizers, a 70 inch slabmill, "WoodWizz" slab flattener and all the other associated toys to produce finish products. A wood drying kiln is under construction.
All of the partners are woodworkers.
We will be experimenting with a wide variety of value-added products from slabs to finished furniture.
We are looking for out of town partners to interact with. Have any ideas?
Give us a follow and watch us build this enterprise !

My neighbor helping me harvest some #tulippoplar logs this afternoon.
This #hoe and #dumptruck make it easy. We have to move about 80 logs.

My usual method for loading logs on the #woodmizer. This is a big ash log I'll be sawing tomorrow.

#maximumcapacity for the LT35 #woodmizer .
I had to keep trimming the log with a chainsaw . Ran the blade off the wheels twice.
Switched to 4degree blades and "she" definitely cut smoother.
After a quarter turn I sawed some nice quartered grain.
