I’m baaaaaack! (Sort of) It’s been over a year now since my last post—it’s amazing how much time 3 kids can eat up. My youngest son was born in January of 2014 and pretty much all of last year was devoted to helping care for the infant while making sure the older two (now 6 and 4) didn’t (a) kill each other or (b) burn the house down while attempting (a). The workshop was closed up for the winter last year around this time and I have shamefully relegated the workbench to a storage re...
A few of you might know, I created woodspotting, an automatic feed of woodworking blogs so I could easily follow some of my favorite blogs. The list of blogs has now grown to more than 120 (don’t you love technology!?), and even though I like going to the site, sometimes even that’s too much work…uhh first world problems. So..I wired it up with twitter to automatically tweet when a new blog entry is posted. Check it out, and follow it if you’re as lazy as I am. Hope...
I am sitting here honestly slightly bummed because I would love to be in my shop but my 4 year old and wife (who works nights) are sleeping and my shop happens to be directly below them. I am however thinking about a project that I have been fighting to get started and with other projects and well life getting in the way I have only built it in my head (probably look a lot better if it stays there). This project however has a few things new in it, as I am trying to implement new aspects in...
I have been driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to upload pictures on to blogs and this picture of a stool I made recently is a test of whether I have finally succeeded. As an aside the stool was made from offcuts from another project and all the joints were doweled using my newly acquired Dowelmax jig which I am rapidly becoming addicted to. Well fingers crossed and let’s see if anything appears when I paste the picture and submit the blog
Wow, I can’t believe that 2 years have gone by already. Time flies when you’re having fun ! This has been a fantastic two years from a LJ perspective. I have met and talked with so many wonderful folks out there. I have increased my woodworking skills by a huge amount from all of the wonderful information that is shared here on LJ’s. From the projects for inspiration, the blogs with amazing instructions, the reviews to assist in making decisions on tools etc, the forums f...
I enjoy reading woodworking blogs. I find them a great source of information, ideas, and some personal tidbits that help give the rest some added context. I use Google Reader to read them all by way of their RSS feed. This lets me read the new posts anywhere in the world that I can login to my Google Account (including on my iPod Touch). If you follow even one blog regularly, it is definitely helpful to use Reader as your one stop to see what’s new. Over time, Reader may even sugg...

Historically it could be said that I have been known to jump into a new interest elbows first. Obviously feet first is the conventional method, but I figure people expect that, so I lead with my elbow and on occasion my clavicle. Yes I have jumped into woodworking clavicle first. I had no idea that when I splashed in neck deep into this new hobby that I would find the joy of blogging too. I really only intended to write that first post.External validation is a powerful aphrodisiac. ...
I never figured that this number would ever be in my life. This site is the only one that I’ve been active on. I signed up to other sites and then promptly forgot their address and even my login ID. But, Martin has made a site that is friendly so lots of friendly people login and have stayed around. My thanks go out to all of you for your participation and for Martin for having the desire and insite into what makes a great site better. Now on to 50,000.
Well this is post number 7000 in 585 days. But, I still can’t catch MsDebbie. This is a great site and lots of fun to visit and browse, and post and mingle and screw-away-time. I’m glad I didn’t have this site when I was working for a living. I might have gotten fired.
