Back in Feb, 2009, after arriving for the first part of my summer holidays, I was wondering for the birthday gift for my 3rd. son, Francisco. All of them are very keen of chess, we have a lot of plastic, Chinese made sets. So I decided it was time to purchase a heirloom chessboard set. I goggled in Buenos Aires city for chessboards, but didn’t find any that drew my attention up.So I goggled worldwide. A lot of Stauton house, fancy sets, etc. But it cropped out an occurence in Youtube : B...

Starting Over?

02-11-2009 04:02 AM by GeorgeM | 8 comments »

I hope you will all bear with me as I learn the tricks of woodworking. I am basically starting from scratch but I feel better saying that I am “starting over” in my woodworking. I did some ww back in the early 1980s but due to a divorce, moving, not having a place and losing custody of a lot of my tools, I am just now getting back to it. I may have bunches of questions as I go. I am relagated to a small workshop due to space constraints in my yard. I just do not have enough...

Pigeon Loft

starting the pigeon loft project. I have several pages of instructions printed out. I have had all the hardware for some time. I bought the lumber this week. I plan to paint each piece sides and ends so that it is weatherproof. I went out this evening to scope out a location. I had thought I wanted it next to the barn, but decided against that because I don’t want pigeons hanging out on the roof of the barn, so into the back yard it goes. The first step is to lay out foundation blocks i...

Going Pro Part 2: Are you a Pioneer? You'll Need that Spirit.

10-05-2007 04:21 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

Going full time at working with your woodworking tools is quite a daunting task. It was, and still is for me. I get quite a few emails, visitors, and phone calls from other folks, so I know it is daunting for everyone that considers it. I try to be honest with them, about the cost and benefits. I have given out some bits and pieces of my “Pioneering Spirit” sermon over the past months to various individuals, but never all in one place before. So, I decided this morning to...

Going Pro Part 1: Are you so Impassioned you can't stand it? Did you Consider........

10-05-2007 03:34 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 14 comments »

Over in the Forum, there is a question about Going Pro with woodworking, and what should be considered. The Forum Writer stated to “be honest.” I decided to post my comments there, and then also as a Blog Post. It will be easier for me to find my own comments later, and to document the thoughts as a Blog. Just a few misc., and random thoughts, as I don’t have much time this morning 1) Full time is so different than part-time, or hobby woodworking, that there isn’t any c...
