There's got to be a better way.

04-15-2007 11:34 PM by jpw1995 | 21 comments »

As I sit here at work for the 15th day in a row I can’t help but think to myself,”There has to be a better way.” It’s 5:00 in the evening, and I’ve been here since 9:00 this morning. The only bright spot in my day has been the bacon, egg and cheese biscuit I had from McDonald’s for breakfast. I’ll be leaving in just a few minutes, but I wanted to vent some of my frustration to my fellow LJ’s since you all are such great listeners and alway ha...

Our Shop #6: New Growth Forest

04-15-2007 10:47 PM by MsDebbieP | 10 comments »

A couple weeks ago, when we were having our few days of spring, Rick and I sat outside and were listening to the pinecones pop. Rick brought a couple seeds in and I stuck them in some dirt. What to our surprise but rather quickly we had these popping up! I’ll be transplanting them into better containers soon and then into the garden… Then, in, oh, say, 30 years, we can cut it down and build something with it!! :) Of course, Rick will be in his 90’s then and may no...

Thorsen Side Table Challenge #1 #2: Metamorphosis #1 completed.

04-15-2007 07:25 PM by Roger Strautman | 13 comments »

Well, I’m in the final stages of this challenge finally. As you can see this table did make a major change. I chose to make the legs appear to twist which helps give this table more of the Asian look. All joints are mortis and tenon, tongue and groove or a spine. The light color wood is the butternut with the darker being walnut. The last stage of metamorphosis is yet to come. Enjoy!

While The Cat's Away.....

04-15-2007 07:22 PM by MsDebbieP | 21 comments »

I guess Martin is heading for the airport now and that leaves us home —- alone!!! :D Wouldn’t it be nice if we showed Martin how often we think of him by making a list of .. gosh, I don’t know.. .something… for him to find when he gets back home!! 16 days worth of notes, requests, ideas, new ventures—could be quite the home-coming present (or joke)...

Vacuum Press help #1: Just got it, now would like some good advise

04-15-2007 06:38 PM by Ellen | 5 comments »

Well I was just given a vacuum press from a printer friend and just want to make sure I get the right stuff the first time. I have been to and a few veneerin sites, but want the real story from one of my lumberjock buddies. I am hoping for economical advise. Since I got it for free, I don’t want to spend a fortune on all the supplies that we will use a few times. Just wondering if a 12 mil clear vinyl shower curtain will work for small jobs. Thanks in advance for...

Thorsen Table Challenge blog #5

04-15-2007 06:32 PM by jockmike2 | 12 comments »

Well this is the second time I’ve wrote this I tried to slip in a picture and ended up losing my whole blog. Oh well, what else have I got to do, it ain’t the first time. To the blog: I’ve spent the better part of two days trying to track down all the parts to my blower/vac I’m talking 200 mph of sucking and blowing power ow, ow, ow, ow, more power (tim the tool man). I needed it because I’ve got about 6-8 inches of saw dust and chips from all the planing and j...

"PROVIDERE" --by RusticWoodArt #2: "Providere"

04-15-2007 03:49 PM by frank | 13 comments »

”Providere” ....and so i now come to an update on the progress of such a one, such as this….’my providere…. And so this story begins in the early days of our country, long before the times of Greene and Greene, (and I am meaning no disrespect here at all) when our carpenters of colonial days were fresh of the boats and in a new world. These carpenters were shipwrights who had come to the new world and now found much use for their talents in ‘the land ...

'This Old Crack House' #32: Let the credit card advances begin....

04-15-2007 02:07 PM by Dusty | 24 comments »

Obviously, all the plumbing had to be replaced. I had not planed to do this nor budgeted for it. This was a major setback for us. I had a strict budget to follow and not wiggle room for unexpected costs. The plan was to use credit cards and advances from my line of credit to fund the cost of remodeling. The first order of business was to call the credit card company and get a credit card advance. When I do this I feel like such an idiot. The mere idea of it; to think that I have t...
