    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Found an old barn I had been eyeballing for a while and finally stopped and ask an elderly woman what the plans were for the barn falling in. She told me they were planning on pushing it over and burning it. I ask for some of the wood in advance off of it and she said yes. I carried my truck back and got a pickup load. Offered to pay her but she refused. It turns out after planeing that about half of the wood is Chestnut which died out in the south starting in the thirties. The tops are Chestnut and the legs are Heart pine. I've got 4 grandchildren all girls. All are getting a table made on the same style except for different corbels. I have one more to make. I hope. Thanks for the nice posts.

    Very fine work! You've got a true talent, a good eye, and the skill few have! The ability to see it and the most important talent of all being able to get it from your mind to your hands! Salute to you!!!

    Awesome Rook! When I was out looking for unique pieces of wood, I considered it a form of treasure hunting. Sounds like you did the same finding some beautiful chestnut.....You did beautiful work with it too. Good for you making tables for your granddaughters.

    Thanks. I hope to finish the fourth by the end of Spring as I'm ready to start Treasure hunting again. Your work takes great imagination. All I do is check out a web site or two, get some ideas and try to keep my bride out of the shop while I'm working. Congrats on you work also.

    On the bed do you use those large dowel bits that the Woodcrafter Magazine sells? Just curious.

    No, I believe what you're referring to is a tenon cutter and I've never had one....I use a hole saw, can't remember the size, but think 1 5/8" diameter. Use that to get started, then fiddle whittle the wood on the outside with a chainsaw, angle grinder and orbital sander until it fits.

    So in other words you kind of do the old fashioned way. Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    This is a queen size burled lodge pole pine. I use blind scribed mortise tenon joints where the cross pieces and side rails join the posts.....The tenons are round for the cross pieces. None of them are visible, but I tried to show a detail of the joint where the side rail joins the post......Made a rectangular tenon by basically carving a 2x4 on each end of the side rail. The rectangular mortises are made with a drill and chisel. A 1/2" lag bolt pulls it tight against the post. The rectangular tenon prevents a swivel action, and the scribed shoulder prevents the head and foot from folding in.

    Being a simpleton myself, I obviously looked at the photos first. As I gazed across the beauty of the natural wood grain, I kept wondering how you had chosen to make the mortise for that tenon. .....Then I actually do the reading and OH!, you already answered -- you did it the hard way! Yessir there Ron, you're a true craftsman!!
