JC4 Journal #7: I thought home ownership was going to be fun...

02-26-2014 09:45 PM by JCMeyersIV | 3 comments »

Hey folks! I’m back. It’s only been months, i know. Let’s just get this out of the way… I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! Hold your applause please, I may be moving out in the next few months if i can’t jump start the business. I guess buying in the fall when business is dead was an awful idea. But in all seriousness, I’m quite excited still. I lived at home for the better part of 26 years. The freedom and privacy is amazing. And having room for all my hunting, hockey...

A workshop out of the floodplane #1: Recovering from Hurricane Ike in 2008

01-18-2011 06:16 PM by withheld | 7 comments »

Before September of 2008, I had a garage at my place in San Leon, TX. It was far from optimal – humid, hot, no A/C, and the tools rusted despite my efforts. Working out there was not much fun, anyway. I defy anyone to say they like working in a shop when after only a few minutes your clothing is soaked from simply standing there, much less from performing a repetitive motion like hand sanding. After September 2008, the house was pretty much gone. The garage and what was in it certain...

Random thoughts of wood #2: The Stanley 605 1/2 arrived today!

09-02-2011 08:43 AM by jace_robert | 5 comments »

Woke up this morning and my loving wife tells me that the Stanley 605 ½ arrived in the mail. It’s in great shape just needs some cleaning cause it looks corroded but not rusted! Really looking forward to getting back to the states and putting these great tools to work. I am decided yesterday that I am going to purchase a saw from the bad axe tool works, I am pretty sure I am going to get the 14” Sash Saw with a combination toothing to fulfill my initial hand saw needs its promoted as being...

If it's Worth Doing

03-14-2013 04:40 AM by mnpete | 7 comments »

I almost let myself slide on doing something that would have given me much better results, but would have required some more work. http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2013/03/if-its-worth-doing.html Glad I fought it off! Do you ever find yourself wrestling with laziness sometimes when wanting to get a project done?

Moving the family #1: All packed up-almost...

11-02-2013 03:16 AM by SamuelP | 6 comments »

I have recently gotten a new job back in my home state of Florida. Same Company I currently work for just a transfer basically. All of my tools are packed with the exception of my hand saws and a couple hand planes. No shop time for me for a while. It is a good time because I am easily distracted and this is a time I need to be focused. My wife, my oldest daughter (5 yrs) and I are going down in about 10 days to look for a new home or a temp place until we find a home. I am excited to...

Mental Meanderings #1: Enter Stage Left

06-05-2013 04:08 PM by etumos | 3 comments »

The fasten seat-belts sign is on, please remain in your seats and buckle in…. Because I frankly have no idea where this is about to go. First, thanks to all for the warm welcomes to LumberJocks. As of this writing I am a 36 year old, 13 year married, father of a 2 (Boy 4 and Girl 2) working professional. I have been around wood working tools for as long as I can remember. In life I see myself as a curious tinkerer. This often time makes me feel like I lack focus, but I know that i...
