Wood Working?

Hi there,

I can't find any sites or books on wood working, more specifically, making planks or boards out of an uncut piece of wood or log. I'm sure I could figure it out, but there are right ways for a reason, they work the best and produce the best result. Another point to be clarified is what tools do I need for these jobs? If anyone can direct me to where I need to go or read, that would be great.

Thanks

well, seems like you need a google lesson

becuase it should be fairly easy to find info on an entire trade/art

www.google.com

then type woodworking

you should have an unlimited amount of info

just some digging and you will find what your looking for; i know because ive seen it before :D

Go to this site and look in the woodworking links. Just some place for you to start. There you can find a few forums and other places to ask many questions specifically about woodworking questions. Also look through the one listed as woodshop demos

There is a site I belong to called Arborist site. There is a forum in there called milling and saws. Lots of info there on making boards from logs. I personally use a chainsaw and a granberg mill to saw boards from logs. I have in the past used my bandsaw but was way too limited to the size boards I can cut. I can now mill trees up to 30 inches in diameter if need be. I prefer them 20 inches or less however. A lot easier to mill.

Live anywhere close to VA??? I've got 4.5 acres of oak, maple, hickory and poplar dying to be made into boards :D
