Weekend with WOOD 2013 – George Vondriska

June 30, 2013

One more trip back to Des Moines Iowa for the 2013 Weekend with WOOD conference. Today’s episode features a class taught by George Vondriska titled “Logs to lumber”.


Wondering what the class was all about? The title isn’t a funny play on words, the class was literally a lesson on how to take small to medium-sized logs and create usable lumber in your own shop. The beauty of this class was in the simplicity of the technique and realizing you don’t need a monster band saw to make lumber from local trees or maybe one that has important meaning.

If you’re not familiar with George, he’s the host of the Woodworkers Guild of America – www.wwgoa.com. George has a ton of great information and his presentation of this class was fantastic.

A huge thanks again to George and also to the folks at WOOD Magazine for the opportunity to attend the conference.

  1. It is the first of the month and time to submit a Schwag Entry and ask the Schwag Gods to shine on me this month of July.

    This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I have a bunch of mesquite from a neighbor’s tree. Perhaps this fall–too hot in the garage here now.
