My Adventure in Home Remodeling..the Wrong Way, Part One

01-05-2008 05:30 PM by tat2grl | 1 comment »

We became friends while working at the same place. She had a business in home remodeling and had showed me pictures of the work she had done. Even had a business card. My addiction to “Flip This House” and “Property Ladder” got me interested in this whole remodeling scene. I loved to paint; it’s zen to me. Watching the paint go on the wall, the sound it makes, the familiar smell of it reminding of Pop, the way the chemicals interacted as it dried to a slight...

01-05-2008 05:24 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Waunderings in Ones Back-Yard WoodLot ....crunching the landscape of snowflakes, i soon took a waundering walkabout, where all is silently content within their respected milieu, awaiting those birthing pangs that signal a spectacular spring….. —-were it not for these striving images of imagination,who would be found to come and rescue a soul such as i,since long ago in times of olden beholden begotten wood turnings,i walked right out of sight from those who had long tried to...

Learning Curve #20: 365 Days Later

01-05-2008 12:33 PM by MsDebbieP | 25 comments »

Jan. 5, 2008Thanks to Cajunpen I remembered that today marks my one-year anniversary here at the LJ shop. It has been an interesting year, filled with surprises. Last year, on this day, I thought “give woodworking a try and see if you like it”. I had no background in woodworking, no mentor to copy, no woodworker or creations as an inspiration—just an appreciation of wood surfaces. I didn’t know what I wanted to make or how I wanted to make it. The only tools we h...

New Dewalt Flush Trim Router today

01-05-2008 07:59 AM by JR | 7 comments »

Once I sneaked it past my wife into my garage, I was free! It seems it’ll be nice to have one other router that isn’t quite such a beast. I think I can do a lot more with it than I would have considered doing with my Porter.

Contests, Cleanup, and Honey Do...

01-05-2008 06:13 AM by RobH | 5 comments »

I am really glad that this weekend is going to be a warmer one for January in Virginia. I have about 10 things I need to get done this weekend. First off, I am still trying to solidify in my mind an entry for the 2×4 contest. I have a thought, I just have to get out in the shop and start building. Before I can do that I need to do a whirlwind cleanup and come up with a couple of storage shelves for a couple of tools. On top of the cleanup and the contest entry, I have a couple of ...

So you want to go pro #1: For now I'm gathering my thoughts

01-05-2008 06:07 AM by odie | 6 comments »

OK boys and girls or OK girls and boys This is my first attempt at a “blog”. I don’t even understand what it is. To start with, it is my first priority to be FUNNY. At my age, if you ask a woman or a man what is the most important thing in a marriage they will say a sense of humor. Those of you 40+ out there know what I mean. So you want to start a business. This hopefully will be a series of do’s and don’ts of starting your own woodworking (((or what ever ((f...

Woodworking Awards 2008 - 2x4 #1: Im gonna try dovetails

01-05-2008 03:23 AM by Zuki | 15 comments »

Well . . . DW (Dear Wife) did not like my initial idea for the 2×4 project so yesterday evening she spent a little time surfing the net looking for things she would like to have in the house. She found a XXXXXX and asked ”can you make this?”. I said ”yes . . . but there are dovetails involved . . . and I have not done dovetails before.” I started to think twice, but I said to myself . . . ”self, one of the main goals of the LJ WW Awards is to challenge on...

Fascinating Tree

01-05-2008 03:05 AM by Grumpy | 17 comments »

Well Jocks, I thought these pictures were worth sharing. I don’t know the original source or even if they are genuine. Many of you may have already seen the pictures in a power point presentation. If anybody knows the source, or where the tree is located (if it is real) I would like to know.(finally got there Tom).
