kmealy posted a topic in General WoodworkingI remember Lowe's lost a suit a few years ago. Now Home Depot and Menards are getting sued because a 4x4 is only 3.5" x 3.5" http://www.woodworkingnetwork.com/news/woodworking-industry-news/home-depot-menards-under-fire-over-lumber-sizes?utm_source=Real_Magnet&utm_medium=Emailemail@example.com&utm_content=BREAKING NEWS&utm_campaign=Breaking%3A Home Depot%2C Menards face lawsuit over lumber I remember having a similar discussion with a friend who is now a retired Home Ec. and ESL teacher. Her: "How thick is a 1x4x8?" me: "Three-fourth inches" Her: "Hmmm. How wide is it, then? me "Three and a half inches." Her: "Aaak! How long would it be, then?" me" "Ninety six inches." Her "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" I guess she was used to a cup of sugar being a cup and 3 yards of fabric being three yards.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
