RESTART to Starting Your Business #3: Advertising 101 - What You Should Know

2187 days ago by Ad Marketing Guy - Bill | 0 comments »

Mention what you do for a living, sit back and watch the questions come, right! I believe if you tell people what you do to make a living and they never ask ”how, why”, or the always infamous, ” I was thinking . . ..”, YOU should consider changing fields or possibly you have a very boring job. I am constantly asked about advertising; what works, what is good, and even why should a company advertise. I always tell clients you must . . .read more >>

Sliding Camping Chair #1: Proof of concept

2187 days ago by Woodbutchery | 7 comments »

It started years ago, when I found a camping chair that was easy to carry but sturdy enough to hold my weight. I bought a pair for the wife and I. The seat slips into the back, and the top slat of the back acts as the handle. It’s great for lazing about at a camp site, or anywhere. Unfortunately, they’re two inch yellow pine, held together by staples, and wear and weather wore one of them away. I kept a leg for the back and a leg for the seat and made a pattern from ...

A little intro music, Maestro ....

2187 days ago by Woodbutchery | 2 comments »

I’m a musician with a day job, programming for a bank processing service. I play music because I have to. So what brings me to a woodworking group? Several years ago I joined the SCA, a medeival historic recreation group, and got involved in several woodworking projects, repairing old tables with new wood tops, building tent poles, making 6 panel boxes. I started off using other people’s tools, had the prerequisite drill-more-often-used-as-a-screwdriver, and a cheap jig saw. ...

A new shop in the making #18: Cedar scalloped siding on and light hooked up

2188 days ago by Bob #2 | 14 comments »

At the risk of being seen as slacking off I humbly submit my most recent efforts.“The Boss’ as she has become known let me know that the shop would be best served with a faux frontage to drop the visual height of the building . To do this I hand cut and milled some 45 lengths of 3/4”cedar fencing into cedar siding, cut and fitted same, marked the lengths with a snap line and painstakingly cut each in the form of semicircle. Next painted and reinstalled each and every boar...

IMPORTANT: Awards Update

2188 days ago by Martin Sojka | 14 comments »

I guess we have new LumberJocks Murphy’s Law and it’s official: If anything can go wrong, it will when I go on vacation. As you noticed, Summer 08 Awards Section has not been working properly in the past hours. Since I was on the road at the time, I wasn’t able to fix the problem before the entry period deadline. Now it’s fixed and I decided to move following important dates: Entry opens on July 1, 2008 at 6 AM CDT and ends on August 3, 2008 at 3 PM CDT. ...
