It would be nice if there were a way to locate listed workshops in my area. The map system is very inconvenient to page through and the list view does not list by location.

thanks!

Well, I’m not sure exactly where Cramerton is in North …............

Oops,

I just spent about twenty minutes looking up member’s shops in North Carolina.

Then I noticed your signature that says, Logan, Virginia.

If I knew exactly where you lived at, maybe I could try to look up some members in your home state.

.

I found you on the map.
Give me little time. I’ll look and see what I can find in Virginia.

I don’t know of no way really to easily find Lumberjocks in your area. I had some time on my hands.

Having a bad day, don’t ask.

Anyway, I searched through the lists. I only got as far as page 35 before my mind went numb.

Up to page 35, here’s a list of Lumberjocks in Virginia.

Hope it helps.

Sorry guys, I didn’t update my profile with the recent move. I was in Cramerton (suburb of Charlotte) NC, but am now in Woodstock VA. Which is near Winchester and Harrisonburg.

William; you had more patience than me, I only got to page 30 :).

Also, I’m only about 15 minutes from the WV border, but its mostly tiny towns around that part of WV.

I was just curious. Thanks guys. Promise I’m not looking to stalk anyone….

Uuuuuum, NO.

I had some time and was trying to help.
About a year ago I was down for about a month for health reasons and actually looked at every single member’s shops who had them posted.
It was a time killer. I hope I don’t get down THAT bad again.

I’m just glad I got any response.

I get down a lot with my health. I also stay on sometimes for hours at night when I can’t sleep. I find myself helping like I did above sometimes. A majority of the time, I do it, and the person who was looking for help doesn’t bother coming back and saying thank you, go to hell, kiss my @$$, or NOTHING.
So at least Logan was respectful enough to acknowledge the help. Some don’t. It makes it so that some of us get tired of helping people.

So anyway, since he’s near the West Virginia border, I guess I need to go back through and find Lumberjocks in West Virginia now.

I hope you guys aren’t going to actually sit here and wait for me to do it???

Responses like William’s are the reason I joined LJ. Thanks guys.

Just spent the evening cleaning hardened bags of cement, petrified dog turds, a bunch of bizarre white-supremacist documents, and a LOT of plastic beads out of the new basement shop (all typical of rental properties, haha). I still have to tear down some shelving and a flimsy wall and do more vacuuming but the place is almost home :).

Incidentally, much of the shelving I’m removing is rough cut oak that looks and feels quite old. The home owner tells me his pop built the house himself and modified it through the years as is typical of farmhouses (adding on rooms and floors and such). Everything has a ‘hand made by a farmer’ quality to it that I appreciate as I have similar ilk in my family history. I’ll be saving the oak that I can to use on projects, probably mostly small boxes and trim for larger furniture.

We’ll see what my cheap used delta planer thinks of old-growth oak. :)

Take small bites with that old oak. If it’s like a lot that I’ve messed with in the past, old oak can be brutal on planer blades.

As soon as I read anything about old oak these days, I always thing of my wife’s mother’s desk that we redone last summer.
My wife had a desk that belonged to her mother that was probably as old as me and my wife put together. We stripped it down, disassembled it, and was planning on painting it back the original antique white. Then we got the old lead paint off, it was some of the most beautiful oak I’d ever seen.
Here, you can see the last blog entry on it and see some finished photos of it. I wound up using pecan for the top, but it turned out to look nicer than it was originally. I love old oak. You often see it in boards wider than what you usually see today.
