Reading PDF files on a Laptop

03-17-2010 05:30 PM by SPalm | 19 comments »

I many times download pdf files for later viewing. When I am at home using my laptop, I am usually sitting on the sofa. If I am cruising the web, I have the machine on the coffee table. When I want to relax and read for a while, I grab the laptop, sit back, and put my legs out. This particular laptop has a fairly wide screen and pdf files are tall and skinny. In printer talk this is: Screen = Landscape mode, Document = portrait mode. I can not read the documents very well if I view a wh...

A journey into the workshop. #49: More quality time with the peg board...

03-17-2010 04:41 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Yeah before anyone asks, my camera is still dead, will be until this weekend… (Closest place that I know of that carries the Lithiums is up in Houston)... So be patient with me okay? Anyway, I get home from work last night with a little something tagging along for the ride. Not much, and not expensive either. Just a little HF 23 ga pin nailer. But I am working on a project that could really benefit from using pins, so in the cart it went. Anyway, so I have been thoroughly annoyed ...

Update on Instructional DVD's Discount

03-17-2010 03:16 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 0 comments »

UPDATE ON DISCOUNT Scott Morrison informed me that the PayPal discount field was experiencing some problems. To get the 15% discount at this time, the buyer will have to pay the full price upfront, but just email him with the information of the transaction and the “Captain Clippinger” special (it’s because I asked:) and he will refund the discount back to you right away. I can vouch for Scott answering his emails pretty regularly because whenever I have had a question ...

Local Resources #2: Herbine Hardwoods - Lucketts, VA

03-17-2010 03:00 PM by BradHess | 1 comment »

To continue my local resources listings.. Herbine Hardwoods is located in Lucketts just outside of Leesburg, the owner Rick Herbine owns a small farm and has a kiln and sawmill on premise. The hardwood business is a side business and by appointment only so you have to call him ahead of time and leave a message. He is good about returning calls and setting up a time meet. They have a large selection of various local species plus some odd stuff throw in here and there. They almost alwa...

Ying and Yang Update

03-17-2010 02:53 PM by DuaneEDMD | 4 comments »

Quick update concerning my Winter Contest 2010 Ying and Yang entry. I donated the cutting boards to my oldest two children’s elementary school for their Spring Fair silent auction. The fair raises money for the PTO/school and pays for field trips, special programs, etc. The bidding started at $20 for each board (a bit on the low side I thought but so be it) and they both ended up going to $50 each. So a little of my time and wood helped raise $100 dollars to help my kids and other child...

Wrong E-Mail Address

03-17-2010 09:40 AM by WoodSparky | 7 comments »

This one is priceless. A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down th...

Humidor in progress

03-17-2010 07:29 AM by dakremer | 3 comments »

this is a humidor I’m making for my brother. It is going to be a travel humidor. I figure it’ll fit about 5-10, depending on the size of the cigars! The end pieces are solid mahogany and the middle is solid (some kind of) birch. I still have A LOT of work to do on it…I’m going to round over the corners, and I’m still thinking of ways to do the inside so its unique and isn’t so boring – the one pictured here is one of my ideas – its two diffe...

Making Candy #3: Bent Inlays

03-17-2010 06:48 AM by Andy | 26 comments »

I couldnt find any info that explained how to make bent inlays without using a router and a template, which is time consuming and limiting. I thought about using the bandsaw to make S shaped cuts and inserting pliable strips, but thought that the rough cuts made by the course teeth would show up, but I was encouraged after reading Blogs by Patron and Degoose on making double curve lazy susans. The cuts were made on the bandsaw and the pieces mated up just fine. So, I made a test piece. I trie...
