I haven’t been posting on this blog lately but I really enjoy reading LJ. I’ve learned a great deal from lots of interesting people and I’ve decided to share more often. I spent over 20 years in the woodworking business but right now I mostly spent my time as a network administrator or writing and publishing. Nevertheless, I keep my hand in with a number of projects, the most recent pictured on this blog. While I really enjoy woodworking and feel fairly competent at it, m...
Were you all as horrified as I was when you read that statement? I was doing my morning mail and cruising around my facebook to see what my friends were up to this morning and those words jumped out at me from someone’s post. I don’t know about you all, but it is time to kick into high gear for me and really get moving on making my list and getting some stuff done. As many of you have witnessed, I have been working on a couple of additional skating pond sets which are both to...
I don’t mind some of the things I refinish . But this is the one that I wish that I would have turned down.I will post this one my projects , so check that out if you desire. It’s a french door , with 15 panels of glass , the fun about this is cleaning the old paint out from the trim around each pain of glass and then getting it all sanded, but not only do you or should I say ( I ) have 15 panels but I have (TWO SIDES ) that means 30 panels . It was painted with two layers of pa...
After yesterday’s adventure, I am happy to be able to stay at home and get some work done today. Although I know it is good for me to venture out into the real world sometimes, I can’t help but appreciate the comfort and security of my own surroundings. I have always been someone who enjoys their surroundings, and even though I look forward to the day trips I take, there is something comforting and safe about returning home. I don’t think that it is severe enough to be re...
Yesterday I was quite busy with many little tasks that added up to filling the day up. Did you every have a day like that? I must have checked off ten things on my ‘to do’ list that would have almost been forgotten about. Although I didn’t physically push the pile very far on the painting front, I plan to do so today. With all the little things out of the way, I should be able to dedicate the vast majority of the day to painting. I have received good reviews for the s...

I think everything is pretty much done. I really do. I am almost afraid to say anything though because there seems to be so many little details that I know there is bound to be something out of kilter. This morning I woke up to the message that none of the article links worked on the site. That got my eyes opened a bit quicker than my cup of coffee did. I did figure out the problem and it is now corrected. It was simple, but as with most cases such as that, when working with html and a...
I think everything is running normally now. At least I hope so. I was happy to say that I woke up this morning and was able to access my site by typing in the normal address. (I had to clear the cache in my browser, but it worked right away when I did) I had a couple of orders yesterday too, so it appears that all the mechanics of the site are functioning properly. It will probably take a day or so for the servers to catch up with the domain change but everyone should be able to access th...
Well, I did it! Last night sometime after supper, I got brave and hit the ‘publish’ button on my new site. After looking at it all week long, it seemed that it was time to really check things out. I still had to finish those few pattern packets, but I needed to try some things out like making sure the processor and ordering process worked and I didn’t want to wait because the general phone customer support isn’t available on weekends (except if you choose to purchas...
First, to ensure complete disclosure, I am an intellectual property attorney but none of what I am saying here is legal advise. Over the last few months of browsing this and other blogs, I have become rather upset about the misinformation being posted on these sites. I have seen many entries on Lumberjocks and elsewhere debating how to protect furniture design—and most of the comments are simply misinformed. I would like to direct your attention to a very recent case: Universal F...
