Ice Storm Damage

02-05-2011 02:50 AM by Bob42 | 7 comments »

I was finally starting to remodel my small garage shop when the Ice storm hit. All that snow was bad enough but then the ice. I was able to install a 60amp sub panel and run some 220v and some 110v 20 amp in half the shop. Now I have to turn my attention to the fact that it rained in the house.

The ceiling is still very soft after three...

Heritage Bookcase from Estate Wood #1: The raw material: not much to go with

02-05-2011 12:22 AM by Lee Barker | 3 comments »

One of my sons was talking to a friend who shared that his dad had died and left some hardwood in his shop in Central Oregon. Joel’s friend wondered if I’d be interested in the wood. We talked a little about that, but nothing came of it. At Christmas time, with sons around, the subject came up again and we ended up with a truckload of wood and an agreement to build a bookcase in return for the wood that was left. It’s a three way win—Joel brokers this nifty conne...

� Do not argue with an idiot; he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. � Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car. � The last thing I want to do is hurt you; But it’s still on the list. � Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. � If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. � We never really grow up, we only lea...
