Topic tags/keywords: humor trick tip modern

Holy crap, this place is getting to be great for a laugh, several times I have nearly shot coffee from my nose. I have since quit getting a drink when reading some of the stuff here.

Let’s be honest, is it really that stressful and mind boggling to hang a watchamacallit somewhere, or buy a dohickey for the thingamabob.

What color should I paint my new gadget to match my old one?

I know a friend of a friend of the guy down the road that knows another guy that knows a lady that makes great brownies, do you think I should buy 1 or a dozen?

I have a dog that likes cats but when I turn on my chiwanese bandsaw( by the way, their customer service is excellent) they both bark.

If I buy wood from the big box stores, will I be humiliated when it all turns purple?

I want a good shovel, but I am limited in space, so I want one that is about 2 foot long but I need to dig a eight foot hole.

Come on folks, say some of your questions and answers out loud. You might be surprised how silly it sounds.

I wasn’t even phased by the title of your post. What’s that say? Haha

I’m just glad the title doesn’t refer to your cornhole project!

I recommend using something that you probably already have around the shop:

When I first started on here it was great to get my stupid questions answered. Yeah, I get annoyed with a lot of them now but I try to answer them. I probably still ask stupid questions. You barley contribute to this site so why do you even care?

Well, wseand, when I first joined , I tried to help. THEN I found out that with all the perfessionals on here, that “do it this way because that’s the way this guy that sells this crap you need in order for it to look exactly like mine”

I have been in business for over thirty years doing this stuff, I have learned just a few tricks here and there, thought I could pick up some here when I joined, well I don’t do cutting boards or spend months making jigs.

When a perfessional tells you ” oh no, if you do it that way it is going to look horrible” I figured out real quick, most weekend woodworkers are in their own little click.

SO, I just sit back and laugh at most of the posts, I admire DKV, he just rubs it in everyone’s face in a tactful way.

BTW, I misspelled professional on purpose, I doubt you would understand why. Have a good day.

Menopause is a bitch! My wife hated everything about a certain establishment, yet she went there all the time. She didn’t buy anything, but she bitched about the service and products. I learned that sometimes it is just best to ignore a menopausal bitch who knows everything.

upinflames,the off topic forum here is very popular ,it looks like you have been reading those”funny” threads from that forum,but when you look at all the threads being posted you get a different impression,these are a few examples of the leading threads:
2-3 threads /questions on Cherry,few on hand tools,one on upcoming sale, one on dovetail,woodworking tips,etc,etc,etc.
What’s wrong with this site with so much stuff to read?sure you can pick a few posts from the whole lot that are ” boring” and judge the site on those but why would you?specially if they make you laugh so much that you ” have nearly shot coffee from your nose”.

I couldn’t care less why you would misspell a word. Obviously, you are better then everyone else on the site.
So why not answer a few questions and help us less fortunate Perfessionals? Hey look at that I can misspell it too.

This is for two goobers that can’t read…...I never, anywhere in this post, or on any other post, have claimed to know everything or be better than anyone else. I have answered questions in the past, tried to show how to save money on cartridges for dust collectors, I was about as dumb as a box of rocks from what I was told. Then, one of the weekend gurus said the exact same thing in a later post( go figure there would be numerous posts about stuff….)and by cracky, he was a genius. So I gave up a long time ago trying to compete with stupid. I do wish everyone well, I’ll not be posting any further comments or starting any threads.

In answer to your original question – it really depends on how hairy you are in the underpants department &
what you had for your dinner.
I reckon most of us could get away with a rub of a moist wipe to finish after a yard of paper 1st.
Or you could just use a deck-scrub for the morning after a feed of Guinness.

Of course this is primarily a woodworking site, so I suppose you could start off with 80 grit wet/dry sandpaper and work your way up to 1200.
Maybe the professionals & w/enders could let us know their preferred sandpaper brands and methods of use, eg straight up and down or a brisk circular motion.
This would surely provide for lively debate.

but murch, which is better, hand sanding or using a ROS? Maybe a finish sander for the higher grits?
