Chaplain in Afghanistan - 10 replies
Gosh, I miss making saw dust! 29 August 2011 “Chaplain Ganther . . . Chaplain Ganther . . . sorry to wake you, but a soldier just received news that his mother passed away. He’s pretty tore up.”It was 2330 (11:30 p.m.) and I had been asleep for less than an hour after a fairly long Sunday. The day began with leading worship and preachin...

Finishing in Cold Weather - 8 replies
I work in an unheated garage which isn’t a problem for most of the year in Texas. But I’ve begun the finishing stage of a three piece furniture project (stained last night – still in the 70s) and the weather is about to change (tonight – dropping to 30s and windy) for the next one to three months. The garage is also a...

Today's Flea Market Finds - 5 replies
It’s a beeeeeutiful Fall day in Texas and I should have just gone straight to the shop this morning. But, the thought crossed my mind to take just 30 minutes and run out to the local flea market. I have pretty much given up on our local flea market and seldom go anymore. It’s been years since I had found anything besides tube sock...

OSS? or Belt and Disk? - 23 replies
Came into some birthday gift money today from family and friends. I think the next wish list item is a sanding station of some sort. Either a combo belt and disk sanding station or an oscillating spindle sander. Recommendations? What do you have and are you pleased with it? I probably should first consider a table top model because of s...

Woodworking Classes and/or Schools You've Attended - 22 replies
I did a search of LJ and it looks like several of us have referred to woodworking classes we have taken. I thought it might be an interesting forum thread for us to share the classes we have taken, where the classes were conducted, the teachers, etc. I’ve attended the Marc Adams Woodworking School in Franklin, IN for four different wee...

Anyone do Upholstery? - 1 reply
Apparently there’s an unfulfilled niche for furniture repair in my community because the word is getting out that I repair furniture. Well anyway, I was approached at Lions Club about a furniture repair and perhaps some “recovering”. Well, I’ve done a little “recovering” on footstools and simple seat cushion...

So How Do You Start A Woodworking Club? - 10 replies
Has anyone been on the ground floor of beginning a woodworking club? There seem to be a lot of woodturning clubs around my region but not the more general “woodworking” that would lean toward furniture, cabinetry, etc. I’m guessing it starts out informally with buddies getting together and then it turns into something mor...

Woodworking Dust/Chips and Composting - 4 replies
I’m aware of issues concerning the saw dust from plywood, particleboard, etc. But when I’m fairly certain my bin is full of just wood dust and chips (mostly red oak), I dump it on a compost pile with my yard clippings, leaves, etc. Any woodworking gardeners out there? I know it depends somewhat on what I want to grow. It primar...

Intellectual Property? Woodworking Plans and Selling - 63 replies
I’m curious about something. And I’m not questioning anybody, because even as a hobbyist I’ve done it, too. But maybe someday, it will be at least a part-time business. I’m not sure where I read it, but I believe it may have been a footnote that came along with some plans I ordered from a woodworking magazine. The n...
