Hey Steve, How’s the dually?  I have a guy down the road that has a mill.  I figure 4-5 inch thick slab won’t have much warping, but I will ask the miller. Seems like the bigger the lumber the less warparge

Dually's fine not driving much  working in NC   I was talking to a guy at a local sawmill and he told me that in the winter the trees have less sap and when they dry they are less prone to crack.   I don't know how that will work for Texas oaks, but i was just wondering. Keep us updated on how that works.

Charles,
How would you process the wood? as in drying to avoid cracking, how thick to make the slabs? I'd like to make a few things likewise, but to buy one kiln dried slab of oak is stupid expensive like 150 iirc.
With that, square up the sides and make 2" pases

Stack them under a roof with stickers at 2' intervals along the length.

Let them sit a year then plane them and build the ark if you so desire.

I'm doing the same thing with the Ash trees the borer killed in my yard. Have two nice 8' and 10' logs. Going to make a kitchen and a coffee table out of them.

I have a buddy with a mill.
He said same as Don, except one year per inch thickness for oak.
I’d slab it in around 2 inches. Heck of a lot of board feet there.
And it looked like a really healthy tree.

If the loader can’t lift it...there are ways...

Well. Got the cabinet doors installed and the granite countertops sealed




Making the drawer/door for the last spot. It’ll hold cutting boards and knives.

Went ahead and made the upper cabinet for the right side. Not sure about the left.  I’m contemplating cutting the counter and cabinet and putting the fridge there instead of to the side.

Please place an action camera about 10yds away from its final moments! And maybe a video from your long range perspective. Of course, it will run, but if not.... the video would be fun!

So, mowed today.  Some rat had chewed through the top of the tank on the push mower.

String trimmed today for the first time since last fall.  Going around the pond was a bear with grass at least 2 ft tall.

Then piled up all the limbs from the big oak out front and put some diesel on it and lit it.  6 hours later and all we have left is this


I also stained and varnished the upper kitchen cabinet and doors for the casita and hung a shelf over the toilet to hold towels and installed smoke detectors that link to the alarm. 

Pretty much done except making the bunk beds

I bough it how it sits other than wheels and I changed the color matched handles for black

Front is pretty peppered up with rocks and bugs.  At some point I may have it painted, but then I’d be anal about not scratching it which would be tough since I use this like a truck.

Got cabinet mounted and one door. Didn’t realize I was out of hinges.

Made the crazy thin drawer to hold cutting boards. Getting all 4 slides on correctly was a bear.

Then realized I made the drawer front too big.  Had to go make another. After the glue dries I’ll stain and varnish.

Made the railing and stiles for the stairs.

Hung the mirror and the smoke detector that’s connected to the alarm via the internet.

Ok. So I didn’t give up on the Kohler engine.  But I changed carb and plug and still not working.

So since I needed a no doubt solution I stopped today and bought this

So I get here about 12pm and swap it out. Fill her up and add oil and.......

Nothing


Shoot ether in it. Starts and sputter a dies


Same as the old

Then it hits me.  I could swear I added new ethanol free super unleaded to the can that I was filling both engines from. But when I drained the tank into a bucket that was white it looked awfully yellow.

Went to the station and bought fresh gas and can.

Filled it and it fired right up just like a Honda should.

So apparently neither the Kohler or the Honda has enough compression to run.....on diesel. :eek

:tongue

So I drained the Kohler and filled it and it fires right up.

At least now I have a spare. That will fit the splitter, the pressure washer or the tiller. I’ll drain it and spray it with oil in the cylinder and put it on the shelf

Got the other door on the upper cabinet mounted, got under cabinet LEDs installed and the small sliding drawer face built and stained.  Will varnish today and install.

Added a second security keypad in the casita with siren and a camera to go with the smoke detector.

Will pressure wash the outside and porch to prep for tinted stain on the deck and call this project done!

At least until I decide whether to add the second upper cabinet on the left or cut the countertop and sink the fridge into that space instead of leaving it setting to the side. I can never have too much shop space and the wife can never have too much fridge space apparently.  I wanted a smaller fridge but now that i have the larger one, she doesn’t want to get rid of it.....

Split a bunch of red oak today. Gonna be sore from muscling the big rounds on the splitter.  24 inches thick and 28 inches wide red oak.  Will feel it tomorrow still have a bunch to do but stopped and got in the pool with the family and then grilled burgers and dogs and now working on a bit of muscle relaxer (130proof)

Now I know why I hurt so bad.  I just calculated the weight of the logs I was  pushing around.  61 lb/ft3 for wet red oak.  Means the biggest rounds were about 400lbs

Just a few odds and ends to put the finishing touches.

I have two more of those barstools, we’ve been hanging on to those for 10 years since it took us more than a year of looking to find them and then we moved and the current house does not have a bar height counter.  Going to have a bar height table in that space.

Tv will mount in the corner

Can’t decide yet wether to leaver the fridge where it is or cut the countertop and sink it in the left side of the counter, in which case, no second upper cabinet.  Once that decision is made I’ll tile the backsplash. Same tile as the shower and the glass insert.

Upstairs I just need to finish the bunk beds I’m building and then some bean bags and a storage trunk.

Once the handrails on the porch season, I’ll stain the porch and posts and railing.

Thanks guys.

Dave I decided on post and beam because of the slope and because I wanted to do it all myself without hiring out foundation. Seems to fit the theme even though the main house is on slab.

Remember this started small and got out of hand quick.

Knee is almost 100%. Still taking it somewhat easy. Doing some moderate leg presses at the gym, about 330 with higher reps. Not running yet but about to start.

Finished all the wood splitting. Man that was a lot of wood.

Pressure washed the casita and porch and then pressure washed all the flagstone around the pool, porches and kitchen area.

Smoked a pork butt overnight and now chillin and about to head home in and hour.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Starting to get some finishing touches on it. Still have to stain the porch and install a small amount of finishing trim (will get done tomorrow). Stain will have to wait for the wood to dry after today’s rain.

Gotta get after the bunk beds.

Today assembled some chinaman furniture for the porch. Matches what’s on the porch of the main house.

I lied. Installed the keystones and cabinet trim tonight.

Today I loaded the 6ft section of log onto the trailer and took it to the mill




The bottom was a bit too big for the mill. Those pieces are 4 inch thick 6 ft long and 28-30 inches wide
