Show Us Your WOOD - 5 replies

I was looking through the suggestions for Enhancments for LJ and I was interested in Karson’s suggestion that we have: A wood library where different type of wood could be shown and updated by others that might have some variation of the same wood.

The "MISS-adventures" in the House - 6 replies

my daughter’s two cats have spent most of the day staring at a shelving unit that sits in the corner of my dining room (where my laptop also sits). I’m not a hunter but I don’tt think it takes a tracker to figure out that some four-legged creature was hiding out in the corner. So, after a few hours of hoping it would go away...

Hinges - 10 replies

Over the past year Rick and I have completed quite a few projects (from benches, to a gazebo, to outdoor sheds). We have really enjoyed the process and the learning curve—- except when it comes to hinges!!! These little guys leave us frustrated, embarrassed, and confused. I do have to say that we have only been using hinges that we have...

Instant Messaging Link - 4 replies

I LOVE the private message ability. Some things just don’t need to be shared to the whole group. I was wondering if the “SEND A MESSAGE” could be added to the person’s name /picture when they post a blog/project… I THINK it might be helpful.. maybe not.. and maybe it’s a lot of work to make it happen ...

as I scrolled to the bottom of a zillion comments for the umpteenth time, I thought “hmm wouldn’t it be nice if the most recent postings were at the top instead of the bottom?” good idea or bad idea? Not sure but it was an idea.

I created the entire thing out of pine. Problem: the top of one of the waves snapped off. Prevention: should I have coated everything with several coats of ...
