Safety Pays Off

Lucky Me. I always try to use a Push Stick when cutting small jobs. This Weekend I was cutting 3/16” Strips from a 16” 2×4. when I got closer to the end the blade grabbed the pushstick & threw it backwards. Actually my whole arm went backwards, pushstick into the palm of my hand, Pushstick blew into 2 seperate pieces. I thought for a minute or two that it might have broke my hand, but lucky me no damage as far asa I can tell except a little sore now almost 24hrs later....

Workshop Upgrage 2010 #2: Work is started, progress is made.

02-08-2010 09:49 PM by Derek Lyons | 4 comments »

Spent the weekend working in the shop starting the clean up and rearranging that needs to be done before remodeling/upgrading can start in earnest. Cleaned out the storage room, moving a bunch of stuff meant to be in the house into the house. Mostly they are currently clogging the foyer, but theoretically this will make us actually make a final decision as to where they are supposed to end up. Encouraged She Who Buys Me Tools to make a decision as to what stays, and what goes, an...

I have been contracted to supply a boutique somewhere in New Mexico with 36 pairs each of Red Heart and Cedar candle holders, with the promise of more orders to come before summer. Also a local T-Shirt shop has just ordered 75 tie dyed shirts—all purple because of the high school colors—and they want them before the end of the month. I’ve been busy building my assembly table and moving some things in my shop, but I’ll put that on hold to get these jobs out on tim...

Stuff of interest at the Met #3: Rietveld's ZigZag Stoel (Chair)

02-08-2010 07:35 PM by naomi weiss | 7 comments »

I was actually looking for Rietveld’s Red and Blue chair, but i found the 1934 Zigzag chair. I must confess that since my enthusiasm for anything past the year 1700 is fairly recent, when i was in my uncle’s house in Friesland 2 years ago and he showed me this chair, i had NO idea what it was (just to come totally clean: i also spent several days in Utrecht without visiting the Schroder house—cringe). This chair is out of control. As one Metroactive writer puts it, the cha...
