Whenever he ran into a situation that was out of normal I would sit there and try and think of a solution and a lot of times that was exactly what was done.

Keith, I was wondering if I could ask for some advise on straightening some bent 2 by 6 live edge maple. I am wanting to use it make a step going out onto the patio deck. How would you suggest I straighten a 2 inch thick by 6 inch wide 7 feet long maple board with a 1/2 inch twist to it. I would like to try and keep its thickness to a max if that is possible. I was thinking of making an 8 ft long sled for my bandsaw, screw it to the sled and cut off as much of the bend as possible and then do the other side. Do you think this would be the best way to attack this? I am sure you have come across this in the past and would appreciate your years of wisdom on this topic. Thanks

Hello old friends. It seems I have been away a while and missed a lot of things here. One of which I just as soon not know about all - My heart-felt condolences go out to you and the misses Keith. Sad news for sure.

I saw somewhere that my last visit here was sometime back in August, jheeeezh how time flies. Been very busy for the past nine months with a full-time job. Those suckers expect me to work five days a week, each and every week. What The Hell Is Wrong With Those People? I suppose the nostalgia of the approaching season brought me in for a brief visit. Glad to see the thread is still active.

I received a stern telephone call from my email service provider telling me they had been forced to temporarily close my email account even though it was paid and in good standing, and has been for about twenty years.
So...a few days ago I opened my old email account for the first time in a long while. I had more than 2400 unopened emails, 2396 of which were trash. It seems someone had hacked my email account and was sending out bogus emails as if they were being sent front me. I can only assume they were also using my contacts list to do so. So if any of you were unfortunate enough to receive nasty emails from me, I apologize. I had no idea this was happening.

To punish me they cancelled my password and issued me a new password that contained about twenty-six characters that I had to use to be able to install a new password. Of course I lost the damned password they gave me before I could use it and I had to call them to give it to me again.

Anyway all is back to normal and I'll be keeping an eye on things over there for a while.

Okay I won't bore you any longer...

PLEASE HAVE A GOOD CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

Keith,

Just made it through the epic journey and I must say I have learned much form all who have posted. I had many questions and most were answered just by reading.

Wish each and all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hello everyone...please accept my apologies for not attending to replies to your posts for the last while, it seems that I have not been getting any notifications of the posts at all. As lame as it may sound, I'm going to have to claim ignorance of all your recent posts.

So the first thing will be to wish everyone

Happy New Year

Sorry for the terribly delayed reply fix...but it isn't that hard to get the twist out of that board. The only problem I see is that it is quite long.

What you need is heat. Either make up an 8' long steam box and put the wood inside for at least two hours, or make a soaking bath out of some 8' 2 x 4's and a sheet of heavy plastic. Fill that with hot water and give it a good soak. You'll have to keep the water hot somehow. I say the steam box is best.

When you take the wood out of the box, you have about 1 minute tops to get it straight. It will be surprisingly flexible when you remove it from the steam box. Clamp the wood to a dead flat surface as quickly as possible and let it dry for a few days. It will stay very nearly dead flat. That way when you go to do the machining, you will lose just a minor amount of wood.

Hi there Bud. Sorry to hear of your electronic adventures, I expect this is why you never received my emails.

I trust you survived the holiday season OK.

Shoot me an email when you get the chance.

Well, hello again to everyone. It seems that I will be back down to Ruxton Island again this weekend and I expect to be there until the house is actually sold. I have had a friend staying there, but he left for Europe a couple of weeks ago.

I understand that there are a few things that need attending to when I arrive, so once I get around to that I guess we will see what they are!
