  1. The one about tool sales? Yes. Thanks. Nothing of interest there.
  2. No offense anywhere. No foul... no harm. Just finding my way in new territory. Everyone super helpful here. Have a good day.
  3. Sorry for all the disruption over email addresses. Guess it's resolved now thanks to a number of people.
  4. FIGatorwood, Thanks for the warning. I don't usually give out my email for that very reason. If I do it's in a pm for a specific person and a specific reason (as in trading photos, files, transactions, etc.). Unfortunately I'm still trying to get my legs with this forum. It has an entirely different feel and makeup from most I visit. I'm never quit sure where I am around here.
  5. Sorry. I thought you meant you wanted it for your local woodworkers club. Do not like entering email in full format because of scammers and spammers picking them up with their key loggers etc. I mentioned to John Morris that profile page does not have a place to enter gmail addresses. He was looking into it. In the meantime I'm happy just giving it out by individual request.
  6. Oooops.gave you faulty email. Should be: I didn't proofread. (no G) rest is okay.
  7. I like your frog Al, it's a very cool frog, avatar.

      I am so sorry Al, I know we are only online forum friends here, but if anytime you wish to share with us, we have an ear for you. I cannot imagine losing one of my children, just could not bare it, I am sorry.

      Thanks, John. No sorry needed. We all have our time here and then a time hereafter. Our spirit lives on behind us in the memories of those who cared.

      Now it's my favorite too. :) Thanks Al

  8. Welcome to The Patriot woodworker Al. :D

  9. The font and text were laid out probably 15+ years ago. I don't remember where I found the font. I suspect it was traced from one of Wayne Martin's chip carving books. I'll look around. Yes, for all the years I spent publishing materials for the school where I worked, I quickly get bored with the mundane standard type faces. Eye catching typography draws you in and helps get the message across.
  10. I wanted something different and catchy, but also something that would answer "What is this thing?" And to say its purpose is to be used - it's not some fancy kitchen decoration. Call it tongue-in-cheek humor, cynicism, or understated wackiness. Those who know me know I have a warped sense of humor and have to be prepared for off-the-wall humor.
  11. Lew, I originally went with the Arm-R-Seal because of a series of tests performed by someone on another forum who does a lot of finishing. My own experience has been similar. I also did my own spot test when I was making my first trivets several years ago - I placed a single sheet of typing paper on top of the trivet, then held an iron at its hottest setting on top of the paper for 2 minutes (far worse treatment than a trivet would normally receive). Results: slight scorch to the paper; no softening, scorching, or other damage to the trivet's wood (poplar) or its finish. I have kept track of a number of my trivets and five years later they are all in remarkably good shape. Even normal wear-and-tear abrasion from usage has been minimal. If I can find the original test review I will pass it along to you.
  12. Thanks for the offer. No promises because of other commitments. I will warn you I am not good at organizations. Although I enjoy the comeraderie I just seem to have a problem with structured activities. I do try to make and keep up with the contacts though.
  13. Welcome Al to The Patriot Woodworker!

  14. I have had a lot of questions about Consumer Report reviews over the years.
  15. One more question and I will stop bothering everyone - for at least another day. Under CONTACT METHODS there are a number of boxes to enter contact information. I don't see a spot for us GMAIL users. Just pick a spot and enter? or be an orphan - homeless and contactless ?
