    Good tagging Glenn! I see you figured it out, great job. And, beautiful work once again! Where is your supply of maple coming from?
  2. Tiger Maple Bookcase by Glenn Davis

    Hey Glenn, just a heads up, you are adding the tags in the wrong place, if you see the icon "Add Tag" or you can add tags as upload your images.
  3. Glenn Davis

    Glenn, this entire album of work is absolutely drop dead gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing with us, you definitely classed up the joint with your work!
  4. Image Editing

    I contacted Glenn and I am working with him on this, I think we are open for 1 hour editing, I am not sure, I'll have to check.

    I still love this Lew, nice work man. You have always turned out great work, but in the last couple years I have seen you push your limits. Do you feel like you are pushing it and turning out more sophisticated work over the last few years?
  6. You can Bank on it!!

    Late to the show here, but can I say, flat out cool! I must say they looked really cool natural wood too, but then I am partial. When I scrolled down more and saw they were painted silver that was completely cool, these would make terrific fundraising campaigns for schools and others.

    I want to first say how wonderful you all are respecting eachother's opinions here, I would expect no less from our TPW members. Typically this discussion would not have lasted the first few posts, but this is a huge subject in our nation today, and I thought it should be allowed to be discussed here, your moderator @Chips N Dust and I both agreed as long as we all stay civil and highly respectful of each others positions, then we could keep this up and rolling. Please do not allow this topic to be an indicator that we are allowing politically charged discussions in our forums, but as the ultimate moderator of all topics and content here, I can and will decide when it's appropriate to have a discussion like this in our woodworking community and as long as this topic keeps this same trajectory in tone, I feel good about this subject being discussed here. Thanks folks, I appreciate the tone here, and I expected no less from anyone here, another sign of the civility and respect you all have shown each other since the inception of this community.
  8. What's On Your Work Bench?

    What's on your work bench? This is the official topic for images and friendly chatter regarding that all important surface, the personal statement of your shop, the steadfast friend we can always count on, the space of your shop that nobody knows better than you, we are talking about the almighty "Work Bench". Submit your images now! That's right, don't clean it up, don't be embarrassed, the messier the better, or if there is nothing on it at all, that is fine too. If you have not touched your bench in years, and you have taken a break from woodworking and have boxes piled on it, we want that image too! All images are welcome. Spirit of Topic This is a Hit-n-Run topic, as you walk past your bench, whip out your camera or smart phone, and snap a shot, load it up here. No need for text explanations if you don't want too. To kick this off, walk out in your shop and snap a picture of your bench surface now, and lets get this topic rolling. This will be an ongoing topic, for you to share images of your bench top today, and every day. Types of benches Some of us have small benches, some of us have big benches, some of us use a space in our dining room, some may have a picnic table they use for a bench, and some of us may have a bench of all benches, the traditional joiners bench, or a beautiful full cabinet shakers bench. No matter what you call your work surface, no matter what your work surface looks like, we want to see images of your bench! Thank you in advance to the participants!
  9. Does anyone have a good source for a mechanism that will raise and lower the table on my Rockwell Delta DP. A hand crank? Right now I have nothing, but a sore back by lifting the table by hand. I have literally almost blown my back out by forcing that table up by twisting and raising it by hand, I need a crank. Or a new DP, and I am not ready to fork those bucks out, plus I like my ol DP!
  10. PIP River Table

    Gene, you just classed up the joint with this project, thanks so much for sharing. I am insanely jealous of your work, world class!
  11. Tell that to these guys.

    Gonna Get Low! Ol Buck, sir, while reading your posts, this movie came to mind, since I don't know you in real life, I can only go by the online presence you have created, which I have no doubt in my mind, is the real Ol Buck. With this presence, I just thought of a movie just now, I saw a few years back and I love it to this day, as a matter of fact, this movie inspired me to make my decision to build my own simple pine box to be buried in when the time comes, if God allows me the time to build it. The main character in this movie is a woodworker, he built his own box to be buried in. The movie is a sleeper, it did not get much attention, but in my opinion, it ranks up there with the sleeper "Oh Brother Where Art Thou". I hope you are not offended by my assumptions, but the main character in this movie (played by Robert Duvall) reminds me of what I have come to know and read here by Ol Buck. Not so much to the detail, but the simplicity and profound depth at the same time this character possesses. I feel you and the main character in this movie would get along really well if you ever met. If you have not seen the movie, see it, it's a fun movie.

    Another interesting tidbit of data, 11,000 murders are committed each year on average in our nation, of those numbers just over 300 are committed by a rifle of any kind. FBI data per the New York Times article at https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/14/sunday-review/the-assault-weapon-myth.html This is deep folks, really deep, we need to address the real issue, nothing will stop a crazed maniac from killing.
  17. Horror in FL

    @Chips N Dust, and we have the hardcore shootem up video games we didn't have 30 years ago, those games I am convinced offer a conditioning process to many kids. I remember when the first kill em games came out, we were all up in arms, it was new, and our country did not like them, but they make their way into mainstream society now.
  18. Windows Vista

    Anyone on this board still using Windows Vista?
  19. Horror in FL

    And 30 years ago fully automatic machine guns were still legal, yet you didn't get the shootings you see today, go figure, so I guess it points more towards societal issues then, perhaps? Great discussion guys, pragmatism abounds in this topic and you all are keeping your cool and having an intelligent discussion, Facebook got nothing on us!
  20. It's Friday! Good day Patriot Woodworkers! What y'all doing this weekend an what have you planned for shop time? Also, what have you planned for life?

    Al, I get that, I truly do, and I am not trying to be a smarty here, but I guess we could say the same about Corvettes and Dodge Vipers, and Ferraris and Lotus's, why? You can't go over 65 legally on most highways, why own something that can run 180 to 220 mph? You got me, hobby? Kicks? Fun? Please don't take my comment as a dig on ya, it just came to my lil ol pee brain in an instant, and I thought it a valid comparison here, or maybe not, haven't had much time to think about my own comment.
  22. Windows Vista

    She told me she did not like her Windows 10 machine that she's had for a couple years now, she kept saying how much she misses her Vista, so I went over to fire her old Vista machine back up, last login was 2014. There weren't even any updates available for it, and big nasty red box popped up stating that we are using Vista at our own risk due to security vulnerabilities. I agreed, too much risk for mom to have to deal with. But I obliged anyway and we surfed and used it for an hour, and after that, she wanted her 10 machine back up. Ok mom, you gave birth to me, so you got it! Problem is, she used her machine primarily for gaming and emails, and she has gotten used to the beautiful graphics of the 10 machine playing Majhong and Solitair and other late model MS games, her Vista could not even come near to what she has been playing with, so she apologized for wasting my time, felt bad, I just gave her a big hug and said, no problem ma, and in my mind I am thinking, ma, why you apologizing to me, after all the grief and worry I gave ya as a kid! You are a Saint!!!!!
  23. Windows Vista

    Absolutely horrible. I also surfed the web with moms Vista and many of the sites graphics just looked like crap, mis aligned, etc, you can definitely tell it's not a supported version anymore.
  24. Windows Vista

    It's all good Larry! You can't read minds! I didn't really leave a lot on the board at the start of this topic did I ?
