2278 days ago by Eric | 15 comments »

As we kick off Woodworking Safety Week 2008, I thought I’d offer some improvement on marketing it to the woodworking community. It seemed like something was missing: a tagline. I mean, just saying “Woodworking Safety Week 2008” sounds kind of boring, don’t you think? So I’m proposing the following taglines for your consideration. Please click on this link and choose the one that sounds most appropriate (or offer your own in the comments below). P.S. This is ju...

A modern Day "Who's on First"

2304 days ago by Karson | 15 comments »

A 21st Century ‘Who’s on first?’   If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous  sketch, “Who’s on First?” might have turned out similar to this: COSTELLO CALLS TO BUY A COMPUTER FROM ABBOTT ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you? COSTELLO: Thanks. I’m setting up an office in my den and I’m thinking  about buying a computer. ABBOTT: Mac? COSTELLO: No, the name’s Lou. ABBOTT: Your computer...

You Know You're from Atlanta when...

2309 days ago by itsme_timd | 21 comments »

One of our fellow Jocks, Rikkor, posted a great thread on being from Minnesota. I ’did time’ in Nebraska – 11 years – so I can relate to most of it. However, I’ve been down in the glorious South for over 20 years now… I had to throw this out for us Atlanta/Georgia folks! You give directions starting with, “Go down Peachtree” and include the phrase, “When you see the Waffle House.” You only drink Coke or Diet Coke – dri...

2342 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 22 comments »

That’s right it’s Leap Day, that anxiously awaited holiday which arrive but once each four years. With the formalities aside, it’s on to the shop inspection of Joe Hanson, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Lumberjock. I’m sure some cleaning up was done it anticipation of our visit, but this shop is surgically clean. And organized like a tray of instruments. So much better than the usual “Where the heck did I lay that (insert name of missing tool)...

Should I give up woodworking???

2361 days ago by itsme_timd | 26 comments »

OK, this is just plain sad… I KNOW I’m not the best of the best (yet) but I have to say it was mighty insulting that my entry in the “Not Just Any Box” contest received fewer points than Hap’s entry, “Cedar”. I mean, come on! It’s a picture of a LOG! Let’s compare: Does it have a lid?TD – YesHap – Nooooo… Is it boxy?TD – YesHap – Not so much Can you store items in it?TD – YesHap – ...

I think I have all the preliminaries taken care of. Got the profile done, the email preferences set, a couple of projects listed and now I’m in and ready to start being humbled. Seriously, there are a bunch of outstanding looking projects here. I’m confident I can gain knowledge and ideas from this site. I look forward to future exchanges and comments.

This month’s visit is to Lebanon, New York, at the garage-shop-laboratory of Dadoo. In his own words, he is a; “Mad Scientist, creator, salvager, grandfather (Dadoo), husband, home builder/wrecker, sawdust and grease spreader, designer, dreamer, computer geek, photographer and Licensed Nurse. I’ve also been a volunteer Firefighter/EMT since ‘92.” And a slippery slope ridin’ Galoot. He’s pretty worked up about his recent reclamation project. a 1927...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #20: Thanksgiving Thursday Tour with Dataman

2442 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 9 comments »

This week’s tour is at the Colorado shop of Ray “Dataman” Merrell.The home and shop are dome shaped, which makes for interesting storage, lighting and insulation considerations. Ray is very inventive, with most of his tools and assembly tables built on mobile bases for optimum configurations for the job at hand. Here Deb takes a read on the great lighting provided by the windows and a skylight in the 14 foot ceiling. We both liked the under-saw storage unit, based ...
