Holly tree down - 9 replies

My neighbor just lost an old holly tree due to some utility work. It has a fairly good sized trunk with a few burls on it (at least that is what they look like from the outside). I told him to try to save it as holly can be quite unique in color. I suggested setting aside longer pieces and sealing the ends with paint. I was not sure abo...

How about being able to "Watch" a blog series?? - 15 replies

I enjoy the blogs section of LJs. In particular, I like following the blog series that go through to process of creating a project. I can “watch” a blog post and keep up on any comments that are being posted about that post. But, I can not “watch” a series. It would be nice to be able to “watch” a ser...

Things are getting better - 19 replies

It has been a hectic two months. My LJ time had dwindled to where I can barely see what all of you are up to. Starting in late June, we took the whole family to my nephew’s wedding. A great time was had by all. Two weeks later my brother, sis-in-law and niece spent a few days camping with us on the Oregon coast. We had a great time. ...

Tried a new (to me at least) idea for eliminating planer snipe - 24 replies

I am working on a project where I have no extra material. One thing I could not afford was any planer snipe. My pieces were only about 12” long and I was concerned about snipe ruining the piece. I usually can control snipe with longer pieces, but not always. I really did not want to have any risk with this part. Here is what I did: I cu...

I would like to be able to organize My Favorite Projects a little better - 5 replies

Okay, I browsed through the posts for the last year – didn’t find a reference to this one. I would really like to be able to organize My Favorite Projects. I have only been here 52 days and I have collected 82 favorite projects. At that rate, I’m going to have 575 favorite projects in a year!! It would be neat to create cate...
