Things sure can go wrong in life no matter how hard you try something seems to be always taking place and its bad luck or good luck. I guess you have to have some bad luck to appreciate the good luck. Well that what has been going on with me for a while, meaning bad luck but at the same time good luck. First let me say sorry to all those on my buddy list. Havent keep in touch with any of you and really have no idea what is going on so sorry about that, but let me explain what is going on w...
Well four of the members of this site got together on a Saturday afternoon. BoxcarMarty, Eddie, William and Superdave721 meet up at Williams Shop. We had a wonderful time. We told tall tails and discussed woodworking. Gifts were exchanged and I believe the coffee pot never ran dry.Marty was coming down on a trip to the Gulf of Mexico and that gave us an chance to get together. Eddie came over from Louisiana and I from middle Mississippi. We met at Williams shop and the fun began.This site is ...
I’ve been searching craigslist for that perfect table saw for a month now it seems and lo and behold the table saw that is perfect for me popped up and I was lucky enough to grab it. I paid all of 200 dollars for a 10” Delta/Rockwell 1.5 HP unisaw in working condition. I was walking through the Nelson Atkin’s Museum in Kansas City, MO in fact when I came across it and I immediately started making calls to make sure I could secure it. Being on tour at the moment my buddy J...
Early start on the road for us today and Tom didn’t mind because I took him to McDonalds for breakfast. We did our weekly grocery shopping afterward as well as picking up supplies for the Vet clinic. It really went fast and we were home before 1030. I paid bills and balanced the check book before going to the shop to finish a frame that goes around the outside of a house address sign made of terra cota that my wife and I bought two Christmas ago. I will install it tomorrow morning and then a...
Ive had an experience here at lumber jocks that has caused me to think on this topic today. early this morning i awoke ..it was around 4am…so i went to read my email and catch up with that. I had a private message sent to me, it was entitled apology. This of coarse caught my attention, so i opened it to read and by the time i was done i felt several emotions…one of them was ashamed, the reason being is as i have gone through my life, being a good friend or as we call them here a g...
I got my mail today and could not believe what came. The label was hand written which confused me since most things to the store are from businesses. Then I saw who it was from—-David “patron” in New Mexico. Of course then I began to get excited. It didn’t matter what it was, it had to be good. I mean, who wouldn’t want to get a package from such a great Lumberjock. Obviously, I was totally shocked by such a kind gesture. I already knew David was a great guy....
My wife and I are not the typical twenty somethings. We don’t hang out with a lot of people our age that often. This is especially true at our church which happens to have an aging congregation. In fact, we go to a Saturday night service where we bring the average age down by about a decade some nights. I’ve pondered why this is true of us a few times and it all comes to the same conclusion: We just get along with certain generations better than with our own. This has it...
LJ member Dave Mitchell and his wife stopped by tonight. Dave, also known as Splinters, lives in the far northwestern corner of Montana in West Glacier. That is at the western gate of Glacier National Park. He and his wife are traveling to the midwest for a visit with family and they had to come right by my place in Billings, MT. Since I live just spittin’ distance off the freeway and the KOA is just down the street they decided to stop by. Dave is a real Montana kind of guy, a...
Looking at the stats, it’s been 356 days. and a whole lot more of a woodworking since day 1. The passion is still going strong, but the shared experiences and information that has flown around has added so many new abilities and capabilities. I want to thank everyone that ever responded to any of my questions in person, or indirectly by asking questions on the forums, that I had in my mind as well, or answered those. there are many opinions between the 10K members, some share the ...
Is it just me, or does anyone else have a large extended family that wants your woodworking expertise at a bargain basement cost? There are times when i envy the guy who produces the upper part of the valve stem actuator that only fit a 12 foot tall Caterpillar tire. I bet practically nobody calls a brother in law like that for a “deal”!!!! Not that i don’t enjoy making things for the family (and friends), i just can’t charge them enough. When i do, i’m likely...
