Our local LumberJocks’ picnic has now come and gone. The weather was perfect – not too hot and not to cold = and no rain!!! When Rick and I showed up my Mom and my Aunt and Uncle were already there waiting. We later had another guest, a friend who had read about the picnic in the paper. Starting the event off, we looked through the “official” LumberJocks’ photo album viewing pictures of MsDebbieP’s adventures around the world and as the shop Inspecto...
We’re finishing few days full of little upgrades and new features with something very valuable – new print styles. If you tried to print any of the LJ pages in the past you sure noticed that it was a complete mess. I’ve finally found some time this weekend to work on the printer-friendly version. Header, footer, menus, banners and other parts that are not useful in the print version are now hidden when you hit Print button in your browser. The remaining content is slightl...
Think a cool site enhancement would be to have personal email addresses from lumberjocks with automatic forwarding to personal email. Perhaps even have a limited number of emails stored in the lumberjocks server ? Anyone think this is good idea too ? Hey Martin and Debbie … would this bring in more site activity ? How much programming time would it take? Any added expense?
Many of you noticed that I added small logos to the header – for easy switching between our LumberJocks, HomeRefurbers and GardenTenders websites. Just a small update but hopefully you’ll find it useful…
Posting on MsDebbieP’s blog for the new year got me thinking about how long I’ve been here are LumberJocks, 1282 days with 819 post. WOW! I just hit another milestone. Just posted my 200th project. I love looking back at some of the projects. I build them so fast that I quickly forget about them. I’m glad LJ is here to jog my memory and help me “reflect” (see my 200th project for the pun) on the past. Seems like yesterday that I was signing up for this “community” and ...
I’ve been blogging since 2004, running an anonymous blog on my own little patch of electronic real estate on this world wide web. So when I started getting interested in woodworking, it made sense to me to chronicle my ups and downs on my own website/blog. Thus Adventures in Woodworking was born. And so I did what most good bloggers do when first starting out: I visited other blogs. That’s a good way to get your name and website out there and to make friends along the way. I ha...
The Community of Wood What happens when seemingly big things come into the ’radical blocked viewing of eyesight’, that is held in consortium by small people….? Now one might ask, what in the hell of heavens fine name is this blubbering idiot talking about today and as such, I can only say….”technic’s of wizard imagery have brought all of my photos back and thanks to the folks at Zooomr, Zoho, Robert Scoble, Sun Microsystems and Dell, plus all other...
As you may noticed we have new button on our colorful header’s toolbar. It’s name is STICKIES and it has stolen the SEARCH’s button brown color. Once you click on the STICKIES button it will reveal the list of handpicked sticky pages/posts on the site. Many of the important and essential posts got lost because the amount of fresh new content is growing each day – now we have a way to give them attention they deserve. Here is the screenshot: Enjoy!
Is anyone else having troubles uploading photos when making a new project? I’ve made my pics low res and the file sizes are only about 128kb so I’m not sure why it’s taking so long to attach. The first one usually comes up in seconds but the next ones just stall. After about 7 or eight tries it seems to work but it doesn’t seem right. Any suggestions, thank everyone.
A couple reasons I haven’t been able to make anything lately, aside from being short on blood, is two of my important tools took a dump on me. Actually three, but we won’t talk about that. Luckily one was under contract with sears and they honored it gracefully, my band saw, and 2. I must have the luck of the Irish because my Delta 46-765X, 16 inch variable speed lathe died on me, or at least the control module did. The module is no longer manufactured or in stock by Delta or Port...
