It’s really something, how time flies when you’re having FUN! It just seems like yesterday. We’ve enjoyed every minute of it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This picture will show you the start of our retirement journey. This Woody Woodpecker Hat was awarded me at a retirement party in my honor, along with a block of wood to chisel on in my leisure time. LOL ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Some...
Not quite in the workshop... #17: Being slowed down by hurricanes, leaky radiators, and old Television sets...
Well, my fence building has been slowed down, yet again. First by a a leaky radiator. It would seem that my wife noticed the other day while driving home from a job interview that the car “smelled funny”... Upon investigating, and borrowing a cooling system pressure tester, I noted a geyser under the hood, eminating from the seam between the plastic radiator tank, and its aluminum core. So off to the parts store to grab the stuff to fix that, radiator, hoses, coolant, clamps etc...
I was talking to lilredweldingrod the other day about doing some sort of group project or something when it hit me at 2:00 in the morning how about doing a charity deal where we (jocks) make stuff and sell it at a fundraiser for a kids charity. Im thinking makeawish foundation or childrens hospital, toys for tots. Tell me what you think!
It’s so easy and seems to work so well at first, but tool storage shouldn’t be a “shoot from the hip” project Believe me, I’m one of the worst offenders!At first I hung tools on the walls on nails and screws.Easy, quick, yes, but as the tool inventory grew, as it must, that ceased to be useful Drawers always seemed to be a good way to store things, and I have many drawers, but what’s in them? Clutter and dust.How can a closed drawer accumulate sawdust...
Well, As I sit in my air conditioned office, I am already dreading that hot job site that awaits us! We have moved out from the shop in the past few weeks and are on two sites that involve custom Trim work and built-ins. The problem is…IT IS HOT…and only June! The area we live in is normally very uncomfortably hot, but it has started early this year. Currently we are working on a large home on one of the resort islands. It doesn’t have the air working as of now. What...
A Thousand Posts!! Not much at all, compared to the more prolific here, but it’s somewhat of a landmark for me… I’ve been reflecting on what my time here has taught me…I’ve learned better and faster ways of doing things. The combined skills of the members here on LJ’s is unparalleled!! Their willingness to share those skills is truly a breath of fresh air, in what seems an increasingly hostile and unfriendly world…I’ve learned that those same pe...
Did you ever have a day where everything just falls into place and things turn out the way they are supposed to? I love those days. It isn’t that the other days are a disaster or anything, but looking back I can honestly say that it was definitely a good one. Not only did I accomplish what I set out to do, but unexpectedly, I liked the result much better than I thought I would. After writing yesterday morning, I set out to fine tune the patterns for the two Christmas candy dishes...
There has been a lot of active craft show discussion lately since we are in the middle of the season for some of us. I was running my spreadsheets the other day and decided to post some numbers to show what is selling here in the South. I took the last eight shows and did a pie chart of the percentage of sales for each category. I generally have three size boards in both end grain and face grain. Anything smaller is useless and anything bigger presents a transport problem. My sizes are...
