Over the last weekend I worked on and finished a small project that my wife had wanted…a small corner shelving unit for the living room.

Hal Taylor Rocking Chair about half finished

How To Get Precision

02-23-2010 02:31 AM by NBeener | 6 comments »

I found this article, the other day, and keep coming back to it—both literally and in my mind. Figured I’d share it. I plan to keep all of this in mind as I begin my 2nd night stand…. Maybe others have similar suggestions for increasing precision…. — How to get Precisionby Bob Smalser — Make a story stick for each project. Record the measurements of L, W, H and internals on one, unchanging stick. Your project stock should be kept on a...

Workshop Cookies Video Challenge

02-23-2010 02:22 AM by Wiley | 6 comments »

Say what you like about the Bench Cookies, I really like mine. So when this contest came along I jumped at it, despite having no experience whatsoever making a video. But with the help of my mom as the onscreen actor, I think I’ve put together something fairly fun.
