Chip carving patterns #9: Leaf 1

03-18-2010 04:23 AM by lovestoys | 5 comments »

Time to start with some curves – I’ve created a pattern that’s based on an article that Wayne Barton published about designing your own leaf patterns. I did a simple leaf, and just reflected it around the boundary. I put in a tulip pattern in the center, but feel free to fill the center with a design of your own.

Hardwood Durable Furniture #1: Leave the throw-away crowd

03-17-2010 10:40 PM by GlenMcD | 1 comment »

As times tighten, it seems like it’s a good idea to buy value. Durable, well-made products were what the United States was built on. Support our own, but insist on quality, durability, and repairability. Shameless plug…give Rhumbline Furniture a try, you won’t be disappointed….sorry, had to do it, we are pretty proud of our accomplishments.

Sketchup Shorts #6: Compound Angle Cuts

03-17-2010 06:02 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I just posted this as a comment/response on another thread but figured this might be something that others could find useful. so here goes. This short tutorial shows one way to create a compound angle cut on an edge of a 2×4. this can translate to any other situation where a compound angle is needed: I started with a 2×4, used the protractor tool, and made a guideline from one corner at a 10 degree angle: I then selected the opposite EDGE of the ‘board’ and usi...

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...

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...
