Re: UPDATE: Google SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers - The Basics with Dave Richards

I attempted to draw a Swing set, jewelry cabinet, and a kitchen play set with sketchup... needless to say my results were less than useful. I would really benefit from this DVD.

Re: UPDATE: Fine Woodworking Best Workbenches from the editors of Fine Woodworking and a special magazine issue, Workbenches.

so my work bench it about as bad as they come. It's on casters from a server rack the posts are leftover 4x4s from my back deck, the top is a door out of a frat house that almost burned down and I covered it with 1/2inch MDF... oh and I got this beautiful jet vise attached to it that I got for chrismas. It's as ugly as it gets. The vise makes it look like Donald Trump driving a pino.

Re: Caption Contest Winner!

I have all these clamps behind me but instead I'm going to use a little elbow grease.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Working with Routers from Fine Woodworking

I would love to know how to use my router! Right now I use it for rounding over corners. Just putting a little bit of detail on the kids kitchen sets I have been making. I've also used it to make a coat hook board more decorative as well, but sadly that's all I've really done with it so far. I like to gawk at the bits in the store, but I have no idea what to do with them. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Re: Ideas for Woodworking's Own Reality TV

Put me on TV and teach me wood working. The draw... Non-woodworking viewers can relate to me because I know little or nothing about woodworking... but I try to BS my way through it. Woodworking viewers would watch so they can sit back and laugh at what I'm doing wrong or maybe even relate to why I do it wrong.

The background - Full time computer geek wants to understand and become a woodworker, but is plagued by a background of bad habits and lack of knowledge. Growing up on a feed lot created all the bad habits where the only viewers of my previous work had 4 legs and where headed for the dinner table. Tools weren't in the budget and safety was a bit hill billy.
Show were the local big box has improved my ability or possibly made my habits worse.

So why the woodworking and where does the knowledge go. I have 2 college rental properties that I need to make fantastic. Furnature, cabinetry, restoring old woodwork you name it. Lumping in a college atmosphere.

It's Fine Wood Working refines an odd DIYer...So when do we start ;-)
