Top Ten Best Times to Buy a Power Tool

01-03-2007 03:50 AM by Tim | 25 comments »

I thought it would be tasteless to post this under Mr. Tool Crib’s new thread, seeing as the conversation there is a bit tense. So here it is, the top ten best times to buy a power tool… Number 10. When it’s on saleNumber 9. Days that end in “y” Number 8. When the blade gets dullNumber 7. Right after the neghbor gets a new power toolNumber 6. Right after I figure out how to use the last one I boughtNumber 5. When the lumber pile starts taking up car spaceNumb...

”Woodworking Wood Translation” I was reading Don’s blog this morning where he got me to thinking on these words; ”Becoming My Words”, http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Don/blog/105, and what a refreshing grouping of words that he has chosen to unite together in harmony! Becoming my words is doing away with that way of thinking that says I am the victim of circumstance…. and therefore, ”now I will use the power of words to become the all that I was me...

BECOMING MY WORDS

01-02-2007 07:20 AM by Don | 5 comments »

I was raised by an Irish mother and a father who served as an officer in the Royal CanadianNavy during WW2. “Son, if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well!” This proverb and many like it, represent the values that formed my character during my early years. “The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one” and “some people make things happened, some watch things happen and others wonder what’s happened” are two more. I used to think that we were victims of ou...

CompuCarver goes Big Time with advertising

I was cleaning up my shop on Saturday night, getting ready for the New Year, the New Project (Altar), and most importantly, so that I can take a few long-in-coming photos of the inside of my shop to post on my Workshop Page. While the t.v. was running with a Bowl game on (not sure which one, or what channel, as I didn’t pay much attention after Kansas State took such a beating from someone this year. I can’t even remember who it was that beat them now, but it was from back Eas...

A White New Year !! 1/1/2007

When I awoke yesterday morning, I thought I was dreaming. It sounded like rain drops on our roof. Sure enough, it was raining like crazy. That was at 6 AM. About 2 hours later it started snowing, & we ended up with a little over 4”. This morning our back yard looked like a fairyland. Here is one of the images. HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE !!!

”A Lover of the Birches” ....how can i ever explain this need of mine, to be close too, and how close is too close, before becoming rooted in the beauty of the birch, as out of the genus bertula and found in my family of betulaceae, i am drawn to the texture of your skin as i peel your bark in dreaming of how you shall yet look, showing your self to the passerbys on that piece of rustic camp wood art where you now sit as furniture of desire…. One of my favorite poems ...

this artisan house #2: more from the artisan kitchen

01-01-2007 02:42 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

The two spurtles I made last fall in a woodturning class. The top one is oak the bottom is cherry. Both are finished with walnut oil, and so far remain unused. I’ve only seen Alton Brown over on the Food Network use one to make oatmeal, or perhaps it was haggis. I just don’t seem to make enough of either to neccessitate two spurtles! The turner, my brother-in-law liberated from a broken cutting board. Maple. I posted this entry pretty much verbatim over at wordpress (oh ...

The First "DeCou Studio" Road Billboard Sign 12-31-2006

About Three weeks ago, I received an unexpected visit from another Lumberjock. Joel Tille drove down from Iowa and stopped in the little town of Elmdale where my post office is located to find me. He went into the little cafe/store to ask about how to find me, but the local lady didn’t know who I was, so she gave him the phone book, and he looked us up and called for directions. We enjoyed visiting, sharing stories, and getting to know each other, a tribute to how the lumberjocks s...

Yesterday I received my first issue of the Fine Woodworking magazine subscription that I won for 2nd place in the Summer Contest. Having Marting provide me with a life-time subscription to this magazine is just an awesome gift, and I appreciate the lumberjocks that voted for my project. Thanks again,Mark P.S. just kidding about that lifetime subscription thing.

”Expectant Creatures of Wood” ....morning comes and I give thanks as i sit in this place i call office, where i am surrounded by the creatures who will shortly give birth to creations of art, and how does art spring forth, just as what is the pathway from which this expression begs an audience, if not from the heart of the one who believes enough to see into the what is not yet seen and then say, i have touched the soul of the object and you shall yet be…. And so this ...
