We are nothing without friends

09-15-2011 09:44 PM by getlostinwood | 3 comments »

As a sales rep I come into contact with alot of people on a daily basis. Sometimes this is good but other times not so much, then there’s the best of times. Well last month was the annual Dallas Truck show. This is an occasion when vendors from around the country sell their products to the trucking industry. One of the best is Overseas Hardwood. They are an incredible company, first for dealing with the trucking industry in the professional manner that they do. Second for the quality of...

A glitch in my shop cleanup

10-02-2011 02:44 AM by Rustic | 14 comments »

Hey all, In the process of redoing my dust collection setup for my shop clean up, I ran into a small glitch. I bought a cyclone top for a 5 gallon bucket, the problem is that my hose and the posts on the cyclone are the exact same size. They are both 2-1/4 inch inner dia. So now I need to find a coupler for it. Ugh I hate these little glitches.

Random Musings #5: Now I can FINALLY carry wood! Yippeeeeee!

10-17-2011 01:48 AM by SSMDad | 4 comments »

The days of my Honda Accord are gone. While I loved it and was a great drive and good on gas mileage, I’ve traded it in for this beauty! It’s a V6 Tacoma (not 4×4 because we don’t really need it here in the DC area that much and gets better gas mileage being a lighter truck). Very happy with it. We took a long drive today and it felt terrific and now I can finally be able to carry wood in its entirety instead of having to saw it down where I buy it. I can also...

My First Bookmatched Panel

11-15-2011 07:35 PM by MOJOE | 6 comments »

Today I decided to try my hand at making a book matched panel that will fit nicely into a lid for a box project I’ve been thinking about. For my first attempt, I think it turned out fairly well. Now to find time to build the rest! I would like some suggestions on a wood type for the remainder of the box…..I would prefer something that contrasts only a little bit, but am open to any and all suggestions.ThanksJoe

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #555: Thank You to Ellen35!

12-17-2011 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am involved in several different forums. My association with groups an online forums began back in 1997 when I got my first home computer. I was just beginning to work as a designer in the scroll saw and woodworking field and I had met some people at some of the scroll saw picnics who used the computer frequently. I thought it was a great way to keep in touch with others from all over the country, and keep our passion for woodworking alive throughout the year. As the internet grew, so...

Building a Home #3: Batter Up

12-31-2011 04:39 PM by grainhead | 0 comments »

Never having built anything larger than one man can carry, I had to do some homework. Between the local public library and the internet, there was plenty of info about home construction for free. However I have learned that not everyone who can write a book or create a webpage knows what they are talking about. Most large construction prodjects starts with batter boards. I wanted my batter boards dead level. If I could not get that correct, this prodject ends. I started with low tech pr...

Building my workshop

01-24-2012 05:23 PM by Dan Lyke | 12 comments »

It’s not done. I still have a few pieces of siding to run. I need to caulk the siding and trim. I need to finish the roof edge assembly. And there’s that small matter of 5 or 6 tons of dirt that needs to get lifted to the roof. However, my electrical inspection is today. The rainy season has come. And I can do things in my shop. My sweety Charlene asked me to put together a progress report, a look back at what we’ve done since July when I broke my rib digging out the f...
