Thanks for the warm welcome

I just want to thank all the jocks that offered their welcome in response to my newly created profile. I grew up doing a little woodworking in my Dad’s basement hobby shop and then in High School, I started sculpting wood with a chainsaw. There were a couple of local carvers that served as good examples and I learned quite a bit from them. I tried my hand in a few competitions and didn’t do too bad in the amateur class. When I tried moving up to the pro class, I was out of my ...

The Woodworking Show - Saturday March 28, 2009

03-29-2009 03:44 AM by Greg3G | 10 comments »

It was a pretty good day, despite the gray weather outside. I arrived at the show today with a short list of things to accomplish. Highest on my priority list was to get my battery issue for my Makita 18v Li solved. 3 of the 4 batteries have for it have gone bad, in less than 20 charges. I dropped by the booth yesterday and spoke with the district manager and he asked that I bring them in so they could test and replace them if needed. Got this done right away. Nice guys and eager to get th...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #4: Whew -- finally, more sawdust!

04-15-2009 04:19 PM by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

Well, Peggy and I finally were able to get a weekend time slot free with good weather to get outside and cut-up the plywood for the garage cabinets. I must admit, that I must have completely been out of my mind when I measured the side pieces. Peggy was looking at them and said they looked a bit tall . . . so I held them up above my workbench and was flabbergasted at the discrepancy. All my plans in Sketchup seemed to just have went out the window. Then when we were talking we realiz...

Norm owns a suit! Who’da thunk it? And it’s not plaid!!!!! All these years we were thinking that he probably went to weddings and funerals in a flannel shirt and a tool belt. Well, here’s proof and don’t forget; the most important safety rule is to wear these, SAFETY GLASSES. Check it out.

Childrens' Playhouse

07-22-2009 02:53 AM by ddockstader | 4 comments »

I felt I probably should share this with everyone. I’ve been lurking for about a month and it’s time I provide some background. About 4 years ago, my eldest and her family moved to Mobile, AL, from New York. They bought a house down there and asked me to design and build a playhouse for the kids (6 and 3 at the time). I couldn’t find any plans I liked, so I worked up the plans and drew up a materials list. My daughter then went out and purchased the materials and had th...
