Does your dog do this?

05-04-2007 03:08 AM by Greg3G | 7 comments »

I am not a mean person, so I relented when the wife and kids asked for another dog because “he would be good company for the other dog.” I admit, I like dogs and she is a pretty, chocolate Lab. but she does have one strange quirk. She eats wood. I took her out to the shop the other day and she thought she was in heaven. She loves to bring thing to people, so she proceeded to bring me pieces from my shorts box one at time. I put up with this for about the first 5 or 6, by the 10th...

'This Old Crack House' #38: This Old Crack House...The house had all the curb appeal of a tent city

05-03-2007 06:18 PM by Dusty | 19 comments »

The curb appearance of the house was terrible. The yard had never really been taken care of and was overrun with weeds. In areas where the dog, old cars and other junk sat for long periods of time, the grass had died and large brown spots were left behind. The stucco was cracked, pieces broken out and long rust streaks ran down the side of the house. Most of the lower windows were no longer functional and all needed new caulking and glazing. Most had various pieces of the window...

WOODWORKING SHOWS #2: #2

05-03-2007 02:34 PM by ShawnH | 6 comments »

Back to the Jim Heavy classes. He was fantastic and his main objective was to give us more confidence to try new things and harder projects. He gave a great speech about not discounting your work as soon as you give it to someone. As fellow woodworkers, you know what I mean “Well, that didn’t turn out just like I wanted it to, there is a problem on this part here…” Just give the item and say thank you when they say they like it. You are better than you think, look back...

"---more thoughts on, Wood Cognition" --by RusticWoodArt

05-03-2007 01:50 PM by frank | 6 comments »

—-more thoughts on, Wood Cognition ....and in this walking out the lay of land, I sat a while and took some thought, this tea of wood is quite the drink, all filled with herbs of heady moss…. —-till in the sitting i soon was shown, that much we pass is soon not seen, and then i knew the why of wisdom hid, since each must learn out of cisterns they have filled…. I was sitting here looking into this spot of wood space, while thinking of the coming days ahead...

"Gathering Wood Cognition" --by RusticWoodArt

05-02-2007 02:03 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Gathering Wood Cognition ....so I came to waundering forth into the breaking of a new dawn, where sunlights of dew laden drops made glad the heart felt of earthen warmth, till in my journey i breathed the golden ether of flowers starting to weather, and in this passing of time i was thank-full to start the day…. ....and as the day came close to ending dusk, i shed my tools of schedule to go and play where childhood enables, since in this walk of streams gone free of snow melt dribble...

WOODWORKING SHOWS #1: GREAT TIME

05-02-2007 04:07 AM by ShawnH | 3 comments »

BILL SUGGESTED THAT I BLOG MY EXPERIENCE AT THE WOODWORKING SHOW THIS PAST WEEKEND. SO HERE IT GOES. I WENT FOR ALL THREE DAYS. I HAD PLANNED OUT ALL THE SEMINARS I WANTED TO SEE, BUT THAT WENT OUT THE WINDOW ON ARRIVAL. TOO MUCH TO SEE TO LITTLE TIME. WE ENDED UP WATCHING ALL OF THE JIM HEAVY CLASSES. HE IS VERY INFORMATIVE AND FUNNY. SORT OF FRANTIC, FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN HIM BEFORE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. I ENJOYED HOW MUCH STUFF THERE WAS AND THEY HAD REASONABLE DEALS. SOME REALLY GOOD D...

My Ultimate Workshop

05-01-2007 11:08 PM by fred | 19 comments »

I spent quite some time recently looking at most everyone’s workshop and thinking of how I could improve mine or if I was able to design a shop what would it look like. My shop is 1/2 of a 2 car garage. Of, course I would like a larger one. So, if money were no object (I still play Lotto) I have come up with my ultimate workshop. First, it would be behind the house. I, like many others, don’t like to have the garage or shop door open and have people seeing inside. I love...

Have you shared LJ with someone today?

05-01-2007 08:04 PM by Greg3G | 6 comments »

I was able to get away today and headed to the nearest WoodCraft store, it’s only about 45 minutes away. While picking up a few things like router bits, router table switch, measuring rule, etc. I told them about the Thoreson Table Challenge. Would you believe that they had not even heard of Lumberjocks. I was amazed. I suddenly had the feeling that I was standing among a tribe of amazon indians who had never seen civilization (I know, a bit over dramatic.) Anyway, I talked to them abou...

"Woodlands of Grace" --by RusticWoodArt

05-01-2007 12:53 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Woodlands of Grace ....wood is a many faced facet, that supplies the support of my need to create, wherein once i was a user of this cellular structure, i have now understood that the joke is on me…. —-since those early days of yonder childhood dreams, then came the playing games of child in me, where out in woods of silent solitude, i gasped for breath in oaken quest…. —-who is this one that walks my way, tis but the spirits of evergreens that bear me up, and...
