  1. Someone In Oregon Has A Birthday Today And.

    Best wishes for your day, Kelly. Happy Birthday!
  2. Battle Of The Big Boxes

    Too bad Menards wasn't thrown into that comparison, it would be interesting to see how they shake out.
  3. The Date For The TPW Gathering Is

    But you'll be here in spirit, right??????
  4. Scott Phillips Open House

    Thanks, Family Woodworking is where I first came across this...but I was trying to verify it wasn't some kind of spam trick. Guess it's real. The thing is, Scott has a huge local following and I'd bet the place will be packed. It might be interesting to see his shop, I m=ight try to sneak in for a few minutes.
  5. Scott Phillips Open House

    Well, Crap. I can't link the original post, or do anything else like "like" a post. I get a pop up box saying "Sorry, there was a problem loading this content".
  6. Finishing Tips

    Though I've heard the name, I'm not sure what his claim to fame is. I wasn't going to watch after I saw he used Minwax products, but changed my mid after seeing it was only 3+ minutes. I'd say the 1/2 right rule is generous in this case.
  7. Scott Phillips Open House

    Has anyone else seen any info about this? On another forum was a post about Scott having an open house on May 5 from 11:00 to 4:00. (For those who don' t know his name, he hosts the show "American Woodshop" on PBS, and lives works near Piqua OH....about 35 miles south of me). This is to celebrate his 25th year of doing the show, and I suspect Woodcraft has something to do with it since they have always been one of his sponsors. But other than that post, when I search I can't find any info about it. Hence my question, maybe the invite was limited to members of WOW or other clubs. WOW is Western Ohio Woodworkers.
  8. Does The World Really Need This?

    If I went by that rule, I wouldn't own anything!
  9. Spraying Bin

    I would like to paint some cabinets, and would prime them with shellac based BIN first. I've tried to spray BIN before and had bad results. It's a guess, but I think the pigment was settling out in the gun and clogging the nozzle. This was with a 4 stage HVLP and a pressurized gravity type gun, using a 1.8 MM nozzle (the largest I have). But I'm wanting to try it again, I've read post after post where folks can spray this stuff and it works beautifully. So I'. searching for any tips that might help me be more successful in my second attempt. I did not dilute the primer the first time since it seemed to be plenty thin, nor did I run it through a Ford cup to check the viscosity...maybe I should do that first?
  10. Attention Buckeyes

    It's also a very delicious candy that has a peanut butter center with a chocolate coating. My wife usually makes some around Christmas.
  11. Does The World Really Need This?

    I've only recently got a smart phone (long story) and while it's handy for some things, I still don't believe they are worth what they cost. That opinion, apparently, is the minority opinion, except for those over 45 (give/take).
  12. Garage Doors

    True, some critters will figure out a way to move loose mothballs. I always tie mine up in fabric bags. The toe of an old sock, or a kerchief. Put several balls in there and throw them under. The mothballs I've bought for the last few years came prepackaged in a breathable plastic bag...though that bag was 1/2 of the box...so i usually pack them in smaller anounts.
  13. Garage Doors

    I'm thinking Douglas Fir would be my choice, lighter (maybe, at least versus WO) and just as weather resistant as the others. May be a little tricky to find. Keith...throw some mothballs under the shed.
  14. Hands Free Lighted Magnifying Glass

    I need a magnifier with a light, preferably an LED light. I can find the cheaper models easily enough, does anyone have a link to the higher quality ones? As my eyes age, I need more and more help to see small things...like splinters in my finger. I do have a tweezer/magnifying glass from LV, but it's not possible to hold and manage it very well with one (while you're working on the other).
  15. A New 'Rough Cut'

    The only PBS station I have on the dish hasn't picked it up yet, don't know if they ever will. I can get another OTA, but they haven't started showing it yet; I'm thinking they might. Problem is I have to remember when it's on to watch it. A lot harder than just recording it and catch it when you can. I think it's streaming on line, but I'm not much for watching TV shows like that. That said, I would like to see it.
