I am working on some live edge serving trays that I cut on my own lumber mill. And I am working heavily on DIY Tube Video Community.

I cut some live edge slabs on the lumber mill about 5 to 6 weeks ago and planned to make serving trays with them. The only problem is that they are to be gifts at a family get together and they have to be finished by a certain time. So I had to find a way to dry the wood faster than normal.

I put them in my office with stickers and a fan blowing on them for a few weeks. This did dry them out pretty well. But I had to finish them faster so I put them out by the wood stove in our off grid tiny house living room. I rotated them side to side for a week until they seemed dry enough to work with.

I wanted to run them through my planer but they are too wide to fit. So I ended up using my belt sander with 50 grit sand paper to rough sand them down and remove the chainsaw mill cutting marks.

Next I used the belt sander with 100 grit sand paper to smooth them out a bit. I also worked the edges with the belt sander to remove any cutting marks.

I used a palm sander with 150 grit to smooth off the wood surfaces even more. I also rounded off the edges and corners with this. And finally I worked it all using a sanding block and 220 grit sand paper to get a fine, smooth finish on the wood.

Inside our off grid tiny house I used boiled linseed oil to coat and protect the boards. I had to pour a generous amount right onto the wood and use a rag to push the oil over every bit of the board surface. The oil soaked right in fast so I had to use a second thick coat. Most of this soaked right in as well but some stayed on top, giving an oily sheen. I put the boards away for now to dry overnight.

I worked a lot on DIY Tube again today. We are experimenting with parallel video processing servers to speed up video upload times. We are going to be ahead of the game when the site takes off and becomes very popular.
