Love the photos of your wine cellars and the racks you have made and of course if you are going to have a wine cellar, one must have a round top door.
Will ask questions later. Jack
I want to deliver green hickory logs and get back furniture or dried wood.
Give me a call at 314-574-6036 to discuss. I am sure that I can help you out.
Sounds good to me, I have a great Sassafras that died this year that I would like to do the same with, furniture for green wood.
Scott, very cool blog! Do you offer any kind of resawing services? I have several 4/4 billets of Panama Rosewood ranging from 4″-8″ wide X 36″-75″ long that I’d like to get resawn for acoustic guitar sets. Please let me know if that’s something you offer, or if you know of someone else in town that does.
I do not officially have a resaw, but I use my sawmill to resaw when necessary. It is not as accurate as a resaw and mine is not yet up and running since the fire. Locally, I recommend that you call Bill Hibdon at Hibdon Hardwoods. They import logs and mill them for guitar sets as a large part of their business. I know they resaw and, if nothing else, they will be a great resource for you and your guitar work. My second recommendation is Fehlig brothers, also downtown. Pat O’Leary is the man at Fehlig you’ll want to talk to about shop work like this. They don’t specialize in guitars, but I use them a lot for other shop work that I can’t get done efficiently myself.
Where might I find info related to stopping bleeding sap from pine lumber?
I have no official sources off the top of my head. I will tell you from my research and from personal experience that the only way to stop bleeding sap from pine lumber is too kiln dry the lumber to a high temperature and it will still not be enough for large pockets of sap. If you are talking about sap bleeding through finishes like paint, shellac is the trick. Shellac or products containing shellac (like Kilz) will seal in the sap and keep it from bleeding through the paint.
