I have a Hot Dawg Heater, HDS 45, installed in my shop and I seem to forget to turn the thermostat down when I leave.

So the blog is updated with shop photos. It’s just too hard to copy that here: I wish LJ supported standard blog authoring software so I could post my entries here easily. Link to the Updated Shop Photos.
...I’ve only been on this forum for about a week now, and I can’t begin to say thank you for all the welcoming messages, and the kind comments about my pouches. Another forum (that shall remain nameless) that I stumbled across and joined about a week earlier was pretty good, but had some negative comments at first.

Well here’s what I am working at at the moment, it’s a stand for a 90 gallon salt water tank. I’ve actually been “working” on this for over a year now. I was involved in a few other higher priority projects since I started this one and the weather here in Central Texas consistently gets in the way of progress. The stand itself is 3/4” birch ply with Aspen used as the trim and alder face frame. Basic pocket screw joinery with some routing of the trim p...
It hasn’t taken long to get too much work to keep me busy. Unfortunately, circumstances and administrative distractions took a toll on my time in the shop lately. It became apparent that I needed to hire someone to help me. The last thing I want is to turn away work, if possible. I spent the week looking for an employee and got several great responses. After many interviews, I was contacted by a woman, Miranda, who seemed very eager to apply and interview for the job. We finally met and talke...

This is my first post here. Just joined the site.Someone told me I could find the information or instructions here on how to do the glue up for the tumbling blocks illusion in segmentation.
