Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #13: Is it ok to laugh at wood? It is unless you live on a creek...

03-20-2012 02:58 PM by StumpyNubs | 21 comments »

Have you ever wandered into the wrong place at the wrong time? Like that time you walked in on your best friend practicing kissing moves on his reflection in the mirror. All you could do was stand there with your mouth open like a bass wishing you were somewhere else. But you couldn’t just walk out… it was too late! You can never unsee those things, and they tend to stick with you. Several months ago I wandered into a popular woodworking forum on the internet which shall remain...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #12: What in the world IS THAT SMELL??????????????

03-17-2012 02:07 PM by StumpyNubs | 30 comments »

I walked through the door and it hit me like a punch in the face from that girl I used to pick on in grade school. It was a pungent odor, something reminiscent of verbena with a touch of death and decay. All around me I saw people holding their noses, one or two old ladies sat wheezing on the floor. I made my way over to a boy who was vomiting in a bucket, just to inhale the air around him for relief. From there I noticed a curious thing. The cashiers seemed totally unaffected by the noxious ...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #5: I'm not the only moron around here... Introducing Joy, Kyle and Randy...

03-06-2012 01:43 PM by StumpyNubs | 26 comments »

A lot of people ask me who works in the Stumpy Nubs Workshop. They see me talking to someone off camera on one of the shows, or they notice I say “we, here at the Stumpy Nubs Workshop” a lot, yet I’m the only one they ever see on camera. So, here’s the lowdown on that: It’s much like the situation that Sam Maloof enjoyed, only without the skill and artistic genius. He hired a young man to help him around the shop. Soon he had far more people who wanted to be his “shop boy” than he had spac...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #4: An addition to the family: AKA Tool Gloat

02-08-2012 08:24 AM by DIYaholic | 1 comment »

No real progress to speak of. Instead of eliminating clutter, I added to it! I was checking CL the other day and spotted an add for a $265.00 HD Gift Card for $140.00!!! Yup, $125.00 of FREE money. I combined the (free) $125.00 with $80.00 of real money of my own and purchased…........... I’ve been eyeing this sander for a couple of weeks. JACKPOT!!! And Damn, It looks great next to it’s BIG brother! Now that I have a “workable” shop, it’s time...

whipped up

02-07-2012 05:13 AM by Danpaddles | 4 comments »

I did not write this. Actually, I suspect it was written by a Brit, the spellings indicated that before I cleaned this up. But the shows he references are domestic. I grabbed it from somewhere many years ago. It has survived a hard drive crash (you can see what things I actually had backed up-) and two computer migrations, from Win97 to XP to 7. If it is inappropriate or placed incorrectly, someone say so, and I will pull it. I am still a newbie here. Don’t mean to throw my wei...

Trials and Tribulations #6: Unexpected Costs of Woodworking

02-03-2012 04:24 AM by DamnYankee | 8 comments »

Okay, we probably have all spent more on a project because we miss cut a piece of wood, or changed our mind about the finish and started over. Well this week I ran into a rather unexpected (though somehow I doubt unique) “cost overrun”. I damaged my washing machine with various items that I had failed to empty out of my grubby shop pants (an old pair of cargo-pocketed jeans). The washer started making a very nasty grinding noise one night this past week. When I investigate...

Design Overkill - How to avoid scrapping the leftovers

08-03-2011 05:18 AM by WudWrkr | 3 comments »

I am going to make a few craft items and I need to crosscut some cedar 1×12x10’ lumber – I need a place to do it. Using my workbench and a roller stand seems like a good way to go, but I need a way to elevate the lumber so the bench top stays in tack. I could use the Rockler cookies, but I think I would rather build something myself and use some of those leftover parts I have laying around (you know, the ones that are just too good to throw out). ———...
