Going to start framing another room later today and then pickup the oak that I took to a mill to have lumber made. (It's in an earlier post)Excited to see what mother nature has done with them.

I want to see the milled lumber!





I had to stop myself from saying I want to see your wood. Guess that is fitting with the title of this thread

Ha ha!
It was late by the time I got it home. Going through some of it there looks to be some good samples of flat and quarter sawn boards. Here is s teaser. It was raining so some of the grain was easy to see in spots.

That is **** nice! When you have lumber milled out of trees it makes everyone you loose an opportunity for something great not a burden that has to be dealt with.

Lumber looks great. Love the grain.

Here is the results from yesterday. The lumber was wet and the sawdust had to be removed with a wire brush, some of it had already molded. I should have had the stickers made but did not do it took the day to get it from trailer to being stacked. I still have the mantle piece to place and weight down. Shown are some samples of what the grain looks like on the lot.

Goliad county. Everett Moritz was the sawer. Every thing was cut the same 1 1/4" thick except the mantle piece with is about 5" thick. I weighted the later with a couple of pieces of rail road track.

I havent been able to work on it much due dealing with father/hospice/holidays etc. Decided to build a safe/tornado room in it also, I have put up 7000lbs of steel so far on that and still have more to go.

Played with some of that oak I have drying. Was messing around and jointed /planed a runner used to stack the wood and made a block. it's about 9x14 x 2 1/2 and weighs 13lbs.

Thanks mmoses. I certainly wish that oak was dry enough to work as I am chomping at the bit to get it all planed and ready to build some cabinets with.

Man, I am jealous...you're building an amazing home I'm going to have to show this to my wife. We're in the midst of looking for acreage to build on in 6-8 years, once the kids are graduated and off to college and we can downsize. I want a shop attached to the house to work in. I'll be following your progress

My time had been very limited for the last several months due to giving hospice care for my father. He recently passed away so I will be able to resume working on it. His spirit lives on within me.

It is taking a long time but I am the only worker 95% of the time with the other remaking my wife helps when she can.

I took a piece and machined it and it's at about 11% currently. I think I might have to have it kiln dried to get it lower.

Been messing around with some cedar post, hickory and pecan logs. Resawing this stuff brings suspense with every cut. Beautiful wood now finding a purpose for it.

Framing done. Doing plumbing and electrical at the moment. Got done with the safe room and put up drywall and the rock for the wood burning stove wall.
HVAC is being installed so itís a mess in the house so I am in my shop tinkering around with the oak I cut fine last year. Got a couple sample cabinet doors made so I can show the wife an example of them.

Raw oak



A cost of clear ploy

Picked up a 72" windmill style fan from a member here and installed it in a guest bedroom (15x15). Wife wanted a very rustic room, it has open rafters and old barn tin for the 13ft ceiling.



Tray ceiling in guest bedroom (16x16) All rooms have 10ft ceilings.



Living area. I used Austin white rock for the wood burning stove alcove. The alcove above it will hold a life size mount. I cut the piece of oak last year for the mantle. It's sits unfinished.

......on the cabinet doors.

I took a piece of rough sawn 5/4, planed and cut it to size in this pic.




Then using a shaper I cut the stiles, rails and raised panel then assembled and applied 2 coats of tung oil.





It's going to take a ton of work making the cabinets but rest assured I'll get it done. I am realizing that as much as would like make/do as much as possible due to time frame/health etc I simply can not. I just ordered the doors that I was planning on building

I do get tired and burned out at times so recently took a break from building and decided to clear some of the back yard. It's so peaceful running over brush and trees

Thanks again for the kudos.

I am a bit different than most when taking on things to do. Always challenging myself to do different things. Sometimes it's about saving money, others might be just to se if I can do it or possibly just to get out of a jamb. Alot of credit goes to my mother and father for teaching me as well as mentors in school and jobs I have had. The bottom line is that God has blessed me with a pair of hands and a mind that loves to build and also the resources to do so. My day job has me dealing with alot of things mainly robotics, automation, ladder logic etc. so simple stuff like sticking two boards or pieces of steel together is a release from that.

As deer season approaches I know I will be taking time off to hunt with my family. My oldest daughter just finished medical school and will be back home to hunt, something she hasn't done much of for the past 8 years. I have everything for a 280 AI rifle build sitting on a bench waiting to be built but I just have to get the time to do it. There just isn't enough time in the day to do everything.





Some Hickory I slabbed for some future shelves


Pecan I re-sawed also for floating shelves

Here is one example of the damage. 7 out of 17 sustained some sort of damage. It boggles my mind on how these are/were shipped. Now awaiting the ones that had to be reordered.
