Topic tags/keywords: woodworking shop suggestions solutions game contest fun humor tip

Hey LJ’s,

I keep telling my wife I am going out to the shed, or I’m going out to the shop, to the shed, to the shop, you know what I mean. She says make up your mind, are you going to the shed or shop. (It’s been a shed for 2 yrs. but finallly now it is a true, one man woodworking SHOP), it’s only 10’ X 20’ but it’s detached and away from the house, only by 26 ft. but that’s enough.

Anyway my wife says I should put a name on the “Shop”.

So this is the deal: Anybody who DOES NOT subscribe to Wood Magazine can enter this contest. Just send me your name for my woodworking shop. I will post a picture tomorrow. All the names will go into the hat and my wife will draw the winning name. I will make a sign with the winning name and hang it on the outside of the shop, and post a picture of the sign after it’s made.

The winner of the contest will receive 1 full year subscription to Wood Magazine. I am not promoting Wood Magazine, but I am renewing my subscription and they said they will give a FREE full year subscription to any friend. All I have to do is give them your name and address. I am by no means doing anything great, they offer this to all subscribers, I just thought we could have some fun and someone who does not subscribe to this magazine might enjoy a free year.

Besides all my woodworking friends are here at Lumberjocks.

So start sending me some names for my shop. We will start right now and run this until Friday, Aug. 30th. at 12:00 pm, EST. We will all see the names that are being sent so there should not be any two the same. My wife will draw the winner and I will post the winning name by 2:00 pm, Aug. 30, 2013.

Good Luck to all.

Well REO, I have started my woodworking bench, base is complete, 8 drawers complete without the handles, the two sides are closed and so is the rear panel. OH, I must tell you everything I do is made from distressed lumber, pallets, large and small. Today I just started my first set of glue ups for the top. I guess I am giving not so good answers, but I have built everything so far that I needed for my shop, router table with two bottom drawers, two drill press tables, one for large floor model and one for bench top. Made a cabinet for my 4” jointer, that too has two drawers under it.
Maybe now to your question right??? Sorry for going off on a tangent.

I would liket to make some added pieces to our kitchen for my wife, and extra island, corner hutch, small in width but high with plenty of shelving. Someday, I would like to build for customers, something like as built according to their taste, and design.

Honestly I really don’t know. I do have just about everything I need to do just about whatever someone wants. It’s the eperience that I have, will be a hazzard for selling, and I really don’t any projects except things to complete the shop.

I know that didn’t help you, but I would try to build whatever the customer wants. How professional it comes out right now is “BEAUTY IS IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER” hopefully that will be my selling slogan, LOL.

So I guess my answer to you would be just about anything, except chairs right now, never tried to make a chair.

Russell, I put your name ”Sawdust Alley” in the hat. I need for someone to claim it in case it is drawn. First one to say okay to it, gets it.

Grandpa Len, you are appsolutely right, but I was told that from my Grandpa 54 yrs. ago and I never forgot that, now as of Sept. 1st. I will be 67 and it seems just like yesterday when he told me that, amoung many, many more life experiences that I have never forgotten. ”The Learning Center” is in the hat.

joein10asee, that wouldn’t really be messing with her brain, she is still pretty sharp, it would just give her another something to come back to me with; LOL, by the way, you didn’t give me a name, come on you can think of one.

Tugboater78, same with you. Are you going to submit a name for the hat?

indychip, ”Mark’s WoodCHOP” is in the hat.

Thanks all, keep them coming, I wonder how many names will be placed in the hat?
