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 ...
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.

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...
