The First Honest Wine Cork [or how to grow your shop]

02-02-2018 04:54 AM by Kelly | 1 comment »

INTRODUCTION – THE FIRST, HONEST WINE STOPPER(or How To Establish or Grow Your Shop) Decades or even centuries overdue, it’s finally here – THE FIRST, HONEST WINE STOPPER. It isn’t difficult to find information about making custom wine stoppers, since designs and methods about making them seem boundless on the Net (there may even be some available outside the Instructables web pages, though I think that may just be a Net myth). Those [sometimes] frivolous fac...

Building a woodshop

I am a blessed man for having a wife that let me build my dream woodshop. In this monthly blog there will be updates about the shop I’m building from foundation to finish.I have an A Contractors License with learning experiences from building a large contractors shop, a garage woodshop and a good sized under the house woodshop. I have always enjoyed building the most efficient shop and the process has been just as fun as using the shop. Through the years I enjoyed reading books on electr...

Finally, My Dream Shop #14: Building Inspectors Must Be Unhappy People!

Finally, My Dream Shop #13: Something Happened Today

12-05-2007 02:48 AM by Calgirl | 7 comments »

Something happened, but I don’t know what! I missed the construction guy who was waiting for the inspector. But, the good news is that there is some trim up around the windows and doors that was not there this morning….I think that bodes good news… least I hope so. I emailed the General Contractor to find out the status. There is still some painted trim on the floor of the shop, so there is more work to be done. I do know that today’s inspector had to come b...
