    Old project. Looking to make a new one

    I made this for my mother in-law ( She loves chickens, and has most any chicken that I’ve found in stores, so made it as a Christmas president) a couple of years ago. I’m looking to make a new one. I saw some lumber at a saw mill that I visited the other day that inspired me to make another one...

    Thoughts on new Forums

    It occurred to me that we might consider a new forum listing special projects like Pens for Troops, Heartstrings, Toys for Tots, Project Rudolph, etc. It would be a place where members can announce projects available for assistance and update as needed. This way members can see what's available...

    Thoughts on taking classes

    I started wood working when I was 7 or 8 and got kinda serious when I had my sign shop in the early 70s and much more when I had a general antique store, repair shop, sign shop, stained glass and picture framing store in the early 80s. Specialization is for bugs. :rotflm: I most...

    Very little dresser (PART 2)

    I have offically started construction! Scroll down to see the progress. I am looking for a good reason to build this dresser. I found it at a refinishers business about 12 years ago and fell in love with it. The guy said it had about 7 coats of paint on it and had no idea what he would...

    A Few Thoughts

    As I assume the position of Webmaster I come in at a time when there has been a lot of things going on. I feel like I would do all of you a great injustice if I jumped in with both feet and started changing things. So I ask that you give me a little time to look at things objectively and put a...

    Your thoughts? / statement?

    Hi folks, I spoke to Doug and we thought it might be a good idea to start a thread about a possible message to the members and to Steve (possibly a reply to Steve's Resignation thread) on the part of all of us. If you have any thoughts or ideas, feel free to post them here. Trent

    Thoughts on Router Table Insert

    I am getting ready to build a new router table. I have bought a new insert for my P-C 690 router. Since I don't do any heavy routing the 690 is all I need. However, I just read a couple of books by Pat Warner who does not favor an insert, but screws his routers directly to the table top. Since...

    G0691 - Initial thoughts

    First a couple disclaimers: This is the first cabinet saw I have owned. I have however owned contractor saws. I have only had the saw for 2 days. This is not meant to be an in-depth review.

    Some thoughts as I give up the stewardship of NCWWI

    When I first started the incorporation process, I assumed that I would probably end up being the president for many years. But starting in Jan and Feb of this year, I came to the conclusion that I wouldn't run for the board at all. I no longer was of a mindset that would allow me to be fair and...
