I agree. But with inflation maybe a $20 bill would be more accurate.

Is the size different if it laying down or standing up?

Sounds like a plan. But that’s just my 2¢ (which are approximately 1.5˝ wide by .0625˝ side by side, or .75˝ by .125˝ when stacked one atop the other).

I was once asked by a preschoolers “What is an Alec?” I had no idea.
And then he put it in context. My mom said to my brother “Don’t be a smart Alec and I wondered what an Alec was”.
I think we have a few here in our LJ shop ;)

I’m revisiting this because I honestly wanted to know what size some of your (Jocks) projects are. You can go back in and edit your projects pages …. please. It just completes the visual effects.

A good example of the reason for posting size is Franks latest posting http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/frank/blog/4422 An excellent example of why providing a frame of reference is a good thing.

Boy don’t I fell silly. I post a box and don’t mention the dimensions and now Odie is having to remind us to include pertinent information. ;-) Sorry for the oversight Odie. And while I feel somewhat sheepish about not including dimensions in my original post, I’m actually really troubled that I agree with you Odie (I hate it when people other than me are right). I like to know the dimensions as well. Good point and thanks for the reminder.

Sorry Russel, It’s just a visual thing with me. It just helps get the whole picture in my mind. I’m not picking on anyone … honest.

Just another reminder. I’ve seen some beautiful things in projects. I’m just having trouble getting the whole picture. We woodworkers have very VISUAL minds and it helps us to know can one hold it in the palm of their hand or will it take up the living room floor. Yeah, it’s the ass again speaking his mind.

thanks for the link to Frank’s awesome project….My mind kept arguing with itself as to whether it was a stepstool or a rustic kitchen table…..and then it happened ! LOL
I also wish that Jocks would proof their pictures before posting them to make sure that they are in focus and of a large enough size that I don’t need to break out the old magnifying glass to see them : ) Also , please post Three pictures…if you can’t afford the digital film , please let me know and I’ll have President Obama send you a check !

I like the idea of project size. I look at some boxes and can not tell if the sides are 1/3 inch or 3/4 inch. I am visual and really like an object next to the project.

Thanks Ron
