Part 1: My Year Book

11-03-2010 04:19 PM by sras | 8 comments »

I originally posted the following as a forum topic, but decided this would better fit as a blog. My intent is to do an annual update. You can find the comments to the original posting here . This will be a slow blog – only one post per year! Should be fun as it builds over time though .. A little more than a year ago, I found a link to a LJ project posting from another web site. I spent several weeks looking at all the great projects. Finally, I decided to share the Lazy Susan my dad...

Part 2: A second year on LJs

11-01-2011 05:07 AM by sras | 15 comments »

10/31/2011 It’s another Halloween evening and it is time for a yearbook entry. A good thing to do while waiting for trick-or-treaters. This year was a little harder to find LumberJocks time. Several personal events took time away. The site’s popularity has grown (a good thing) and that has made it a challenge to keep up with all that is going on. I finished out last year’s entry by saying I was waiting to see me up on the “Roll-the-Dice” part of the front p...

Part 3: Three years and counting

11-01-2012 03:32 AM by sras | 16 comments »

Another Halloween and another year on LJs! It turns out it was a good idea to do my first post on Halloween. It makes it easy to remember to update my yearbook blog. My projects postings are a little “thin” this year. I only got one posted and that was from last Christmas. Nevertheless, the Kitchen Gadget Project was a fun one to share. I was a little more active with my blog. I added to 2 of my blog series. The gift series now has a nice story about building the Kitchen Gad...

Part 4: Year 4 - and still having fun!

11-01-2013 02:28 AM by sras | 9 comments »

Another year and I’m still here! I did better this year with 3 project postings. My shop cabinet project was a fun addition to the shop. I added a good deal of storage space and had some fun with decorating the front. The next project had a blog series associated with it. The different part was I had a deadline of one month. Not my usual style, but it was done and I had a good time. The resulting project was a jewlery box out of pear, cherry and ironwood. The final project post...

Part 5: 5 years goes by fast

11-04-2014 02:33 AM by sras | 7 comments »

Well, this year’s anniversary post is a few days late. 5 years ago, I joined LJs on Halloween while waiting for the doorbell to ring. Each year, it was easy to remember to do a yearbook post. But, this year we took the travel trailer out for the weekend. So, I’m a few days late. The woodworking has been going pretty well, but I am starting projects faster than I am finishing them! I managed to post one project back in January. The frame was a fun challenge and a neat opportunit...

Part 6: Almost missed my update for Year 6 !

11-06-2015 03:02 AM by sras | 8 comments »

As I mentioned last year, I use the time waiting for the doorbell to ring to do my yearbook entry. This year, we spent the evening with friends and it completely slipped my mind! 5 days late isn’t too bad though. My activity here was still mostly watching what everyone else does and commenting here and there. I did manage to post 2 projects. The cutting boards were a big hit. One of them (the largest) stayed here at home and still looks great. The Something with an R box was on...

Part 7: A slow year for LJs

11-01-2016 02:06 AM by sras | 7 comments »

My 7th year on LumberJocks almost had zero postings. I managed to get the camera from the shop and put together a project posting for the Hall Table we did the first half of the year. But I did that today just so I wouldn’t have to say nothing was posted. Other than that, I kept up on all the projects and blogs contributed by everyone else. Although I can’t prove it with LumberJocks postings, I put more time in the shop than ever. I’m spending less time at work and more i...

Part 8: Another year in the books

11-01-2017 01:26 AM by sras | 5 comments »

Before I started this year’s yearbook entry, I read last year’s post. I could almost cut and paste it here!! Biggest change from last year is I am now fully retired! Took about an hour to get used to that ;) My shop time continues to go up, and my project posting are double of last year! (2 instead of 1) ;) Still – I didn’t get the posting done until the last 2 days of my year. I posted the Art Deco Frames and the Church Railing . Like last year, I continue...

Part 9: Nine years and counting

11-01-2018 03:39 AM by sras | 15 comments »

My yearbook entries are done on Halloween – some years it is between handing out candy and other years are like this year… no visitors :) I managed to get 3 projects posted this year. They all had a common theme – gifts for the grandkids. They were a box of rattles , a bug house , and a set of cars . I’m already working on this year’s Christmas gifts. I also am working on a finale for the set of cars – still in the design stage. 3 project postings ...

Part 10: Ten years have gone by---

11-04-2019 05:05 PM by sras | 7 comments »

And I’m still here! I’m a few days late getting this year’s entry done. Out to dinner with friends and a busy weekend are my excuses :) It’s been another busy year in the shop. I’ve been getting lots done, but not much has made it to LJ’s. I did manage to share my birdhouse project and my toy car hauler for this year. The car hauler project was one mentioned in the previous year book post as being in the design phase. I did get more done. I have...

Part 11: Another year goes by...

11-09-2020 04:34 PM by sras | 4 comments »

Last year I said I wanted to post more projects. I had 25 projects I wanted to share here. The good news is I did share 5 which is more than any year in the past except for 2010 – my first year. On the other hand 5 projects is less than I had hoped for. I did post projects for Hardwood Floor Inlays , Long Handled Coffee Scoops , my Organizer Organizer which included a blog post , my Future Proof Clamp Rack , and a Trolley Car for my grandson. I also put together a blog series on a...
