Chompin' at the bit

02-23-2009 08:09 PM by SteveKorz | 13 comments »

Will Spring EVER get here? I feel like a kid in school waiting for summer break. I want some shop time so badly, that I’m chomping at the bit every day. My tools are calling me, but the shop is too cold to do anything constructive in it. I can fire up the woodburner, but that just takes the chill off the air. Everything else is still cold. I walked out the other day, and some of my table tops on the planer, jointer and bandsaw had a light coat of rust on them. I almost had a high...

It was twenty-five years today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play

02-22-2009 09:55 PM by Douglas Bordner | 25 comments »

Well, perhaps not to the day…Thanks to Martin’s suggestion that we open accounts with Facebook I was able to re-establish contact with a dear friend from college. I haven’t had any contact with Brad for twenty years, during which time he spent time as a street musician and artist in New Orleans and New York, built custom stairs and balusters in North Carolina, and finally through dint of hard work and night school became a lawyer and an appeals court judge. You will note th...

Carving Tutorial

02-20-2009 06:41 AM by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

Okay now it’s time to tackle this carving thing. First you will need an artistic vision. It took me a long time to come up with this design and it may be a little advanced for me but I’ll see if I can handle it. You will come up with a design that is suitable for your skill. Now lets establish what you will need for tools. You will need the following:A 4lb hammera shark sawvarious sized “SHARP” chisels, preferably polished stanleys such as theseframing hammerdrill...

My Space For Old People

10-25-2008 03:17 AM by Napaman | 38 comments »

Okay…dont shoot me yet…this was the funniest moment of my stressful week. Some of you may know I am a teacher…I teach Highschool and most of my students are juniors and seniors…ie as big as you can get…so some days and some moments can be kinda stressful…like a Friday afternoon when you are trying to have a serious discussion on the formation of trusts in the 1890’s…trust me…not too easy any time of the day but 6th period on a Friday...

Warning - avoid the big box stores, scam alert!

10-22-2008 09:44 PM by Derek Lyons | 8 comments »

Thought I’d better alert you to this scam. Be careful…you could be next. A warning for those Jocks who may be regular Home Depot customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you or your friends. Here’s how the scam works. Two seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car a...

What Is It #7

06-15-2008 01:04 AM by lew | 5 comments »

Since Odie isn’t posting any more of his stuff, thought I might post another one- Yes, Charlie, it’s a jig. It is NOT a Christmas Tree ornament, a whirly jig for the Jolly Green Giant or scraps sitting on a jointer. Lew

Ms Debbie P's 2008 Shop Tour and Inspection #4: May 31 Visit with MrWoody

06-01-2008 07:42 AM by Douglas Bordner | 7 comments »

This inspection tour is a short hop from Ms.Debbie’s home base to the shop of John James of Hamilton, Ontario in Canada. MrWoody got the wood bug at an early age, ”When I was 8 or 9 my dad brought home some packing crates, not sure why as he was not mechanically inclined. He had a hammer and an old handsaw that I now know was not sharp enough to cut butter. From them I made a ladder so my dog and I could get on the shed roof (I don’t know why) and some boats. I used my allowanc...

Woodworking Safety Week 2008 #1: Readers Poll: Choose the Tagline for Woodworking Safety Week 2008

05-04-2008 09:21 AM 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"

04-08-2008 05:48 PM 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...

04-03-2008 01:07 AM by itsme_timd | 24 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...
