'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...

I have been touched. Moved. Inspired. I have been blessed to be able to share with you this journey of my life and the story of “This Old Crack House…. I am not a writer. I shall work hard not to disappoint you in telling my human story and journey. I am sure I will fall short in this attempt. I have learned that is ok. As long as we try our best and don’t give up that is all that counts. I will do this. I want to thank every one who commented. I ...

Reflections on technology and woodworking #2: Distraction

04-15-2007 10:47 AM by Douglas Bordner | 5 comments »

Well to recapitulate, I began reflecting on the journey to LJ, essentially with the installation of high speed internet after some 16 years on dial-up, the last ten of which my primary job description involved the daily use of computers for design work and administrative tasks. New vistas opened and I spent several days getting project photos together, posting to LJ and photo sharing sites. Together with this effort, and a fascination with The Woodwhisperer Podcast and other internet attra...

Cabinet Progress #6: Groovin on a Saturday Afternoon.

04-15-2007 06:34 AM by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

Baby Got BackToday we completed our four cabinet boxes’ parts by cutting the groove for the backs. This sounds simple but we had to do a ton of double checking. Plus, I don’t think I mentioned that my biscuit joiner needed a little tune up. After last week’s dry fit, I realized that several of the cabinet rails had slightly miscut biscuits. So we recut 10 rails today. Screwing down the biscuit joiner helped as well. So, on to the tablesaw to cut the groove and trim the...

Learning Curve #12: thanks to the LumberJocks

04-15-2007 01:08 AM by MsDebbieP | 16 comments »

Today I did another first and I have to thank my LumberJock buddies (especially the WoodWhisperer) for the strategies. I’m working on a new box (surprise, surprise) and I had a long piece of wood that was rough on both edges. I, of course, wanted to keep one edge rough but the other needed to be straight to make the bottom edge of the box. In the past I’ve worked with 12” long pieces of wood, which I can fit on the mitre saw and I just “eye” it up and cut it ...

Hey fellow LumberJocks, I’d like to inform you that I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow. We’re flying to Cuba for 16 days together with my Alenka and her parents. Instead of staying in just one resort we’ll be traveling across whole island so it sounds like quite an adventure… and for me the biggest part of the adventure will be definitely flying because I’m scared of flying so wish me luck please ;) Anyways here is a little sneak peek at what is coming wh...

Kitchens #4: Hardware

04-14-2007 10:26 PM by dennis mitchell | 7 comments »

Now this kitchen is just taking up space in my shop. Everything is sprayed. The drawers are all in. I’ll wait on hanging the doors till I’ve installed the kitchen. This has been fun. I’ve just been installing for way to long. Nice to get back in the shop.The new mats seemed to have helped quite a bit. I can put in my full four hour day with out any complaint. I’m looking forward to building more in the shop. I’ve got two small jobs backed up. I wonder when I̵...
