Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Just about says it all I think.

Chip welcome to LumberJocks. I’m a little south of you in Georgetown. But we are having a Mason-Dixon Woodworkers meeting this Thurs at 7:00 at Delmar on the MD / De line.

I’m giving a presentation on Vacuum Veneering. Give me a call my e-mail in on my signature line.

Hey, Chips, I normally make it a practice not to comment on a profile until after a member posts a project.

So welcome to LumberJocks. In my opinion this community represents the finest collection of serious woodworkers on the Net.

Your first project is a stunner. As my work tends to major on small boxes, I am particularly drawn to the beautiful box you offered as your first project. Well done – and again, welcome!

Very nice box. I’d love to see more if you’ve got them. How long have you been making boxes, and what do you like to make most?

I want to thank my good friend Karson for uploading this picture for me. Oh wait this is Karson making this post.

I’m telling the trooper if he sees a Yugo in my driveway tonight to not shoot.

Hello Chip, I use a water based latex for the lettering. Water based because it is quick to clean my little brushes. As Dick mentioned above there are thousands of characters and styles. Most represent complete words or thoughts. I was thinking about this the other day and then posted it incorrectly.
take care,

I am with you Bro, I have been working on a big order for barstools, glueing and dowelling with titedond II and because of the heat here in Texas which was pushing a 100 today, the glue was drying before I could wipe off the excess, I also poured some black tinted 24 hour epoxy in a cypress slab and it was hard before I left the shop it was grind-able….I was stationed at Dover AFB back in 1980, yeah I am old :) but I will never forget George and the Delaware Destroyers ….hehe… and I remember it being a little hot and humid in the Summer up there in Delaware…You can use the the glue you prefer if you can control the temperature, I ordered a couple of those big fans that you pack ice in…I will let you know the results….

Chip Saw that you bought a Steel City 3HP. I am in the process of buying a new saw and Steel City is on the top of my list. In fact if I get the cash, I’m gonna get the 35670 model. That has a 1.75 hp motor. I wanted the 3 hp but I do not cut anything thicker than 1 1/8 thick. Every one I talked to, including the tech at Steel City, said that saw would do me just fine. I am going to put a Forrest Wood Worker II blade with it. Would like to know how you like your saw and any problems you have had. I have researched for a new saw and Steel City has the best features so far.

I just discovered your projects. You do some very interesting, creative work. I like the wood combinations, the creative designs and the attention to detail.
