Just what the title says. At one time, one was sent to the Woodshed to fetch a switch.
Because they broke some sort of rule…

Because they "misbehaved"

Because they didn't fit in with a certain group…..

So…this will be all about that sort of thing….been blocked? Had a thread you were on shut down, and NOT because of anything YOU did?

There are no rules here, other than what Cricket lays out.

Except…..

Those who dwell in "Ivory Towers" who tend to look down their nose at others..are NOT welcome here.

Now, just imagine, for a moment…IF you were a part of this crew…

And you all sat down for the Lunch part of the day…..what would you be talking about?

That is what this will be like. Got a problem doing a task? Ask away, maybe someone else can solve it, for you.

Not looking for those "My way, or the highway" types….they get boring after a while.

Just a Friendly bunch of ordinary people, who happen to like working with their hands, be it hand tools, or power tools.

Maybe not so much WHAT tool to buy, and more about HOW to use a given tool….anything from a "pen knife" to a Jack hammer….all are welcome. Come on in, sit down in a comfy chair, took your shoes off…and just relax..

Nice idea for a forum- best of luck. I look forward to seeing more of your work and others. In the past, I was a contractor woodworker and built stuff like this-

To cabinetmaking and now I do CNC and laser projects and stuff that is smaller and lighter- I got old but in my heart, I am a woodworker. I enjoy all types of projects here and I do enjoy seeing and hearing what you guys are making.

I have done a lot of different jobs, from Cast Iron Foundry, to Rubber Hose, to plastic parts. Have both work in factories, and built them. One of the many tasks a Carpenter must do, is concrete form work.

Have built a few houses. Built a LOT of furniture. Doors for houses. A Jack of all trades, master of none.

Do a lot of hand tool work….not because of some Neanderthal urge to be like they were 100s of years ago…nope, just because the space in my shop will not allow the huge power tools. So..I adapt to what I have.

They used to empty their Lunch pales at lunchtime…and send the helpers/"boys" done to the local tavern, to have those pales filled up with beer, to wash down their Lunch with….up for debate how much the helper got,or "spilled"

Sitting here at the Computer Desk I made a couple years ago…just kicking back..resting up from a 2-1/2 hour shop day…

Just dropping in. No shop time tonight. Got together with some old friends and had a nice supper, few drinks and some cigars. Chatting about various topics, including woodworking. Rare I get out socially, but I do enjoy these outings.

Bandit we all know where you are in this picture…..

LOL

Had to move a Mitersaw upstairs, to help out on the angled cuts, like the stair railing..

A rainy-assed week in May…right after Easter Sunday….worked around the rain showers coming through….got maybe 4-6 hours a day to work with….back was sore for about the next week after that…..back then, the lumber and Materials cost was about $900….

Took a rough, paper plan to Lowes…we worked out a material list….they delivered the parts…front yard was the "staging area" .....And, they even forgot most of the 4×4x8' posts I ordered…..

Plant Building Wood Porch Grass


Looks a little better than when I started….
Plant Road surface Shade Asphalt Wood


Same view…..one step, old porch was 18" high…no railings of any kind…

New porch is a 9' x 10'.....as any 10' x 10' would have needed a permit…..posts on the south side side on the existing sidewalk…..East side (front) sides on concrete squares…..

Design by: The Single Brain Cell Sketch Up. paper plans drawn by me.

hate to see what this all would cost, today…..

Krogers run for the Boss..didn't go well, as she had wrote a second list on the back of another list…and didn't even say which was which..

Told her the NEXT time, she is the one that will do the shopping, while I just sit in the car….

Heading for the shop at 1400 hrs….have a drawer to build, maybe…Episode #4 of the Masterclasses "Desktop Organizer" video series, by Paul Sellers.

Stay tuned…
