Interview – Louise Hay Part 2



RECENTLY DUBBED “the closest thing to a living saint” by the Australian media, Louise L. Hay is also known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body. Revised and expanded in 1988, this best-selling book introduced Louise’s concepts to people in 33 different countries and has been translated into 25 languages throughout the world. Through Louise’s healing techniques and positive philosophy, millions have learned how to create more of what they want in their lives, including more wellness in their bodies, minds, and spirits. Her own personal philosophy was forged from her tormented upbringing. Her childhood was unstable and impoverished, and her teen years were marked by abuse. Louise ran away from home and ended up in New York City, where she became a model and married a prosperous businessman. Although it appeared that her life had turned around, it was not until the marriage ended 14 years later that her healing really began. Louise started what would become her life’s work in New York City in 1970. She attended meetings at the Church of Religious Science and began training in the ministerial program. She became a popular speaker at the church, and soon found herself counseling clients. This work quickly blossomed into a full-time career.

David asks…

Where and How to Woodwork in the City?

I’m a hobbyist woodworker who’d like to start up again, but living the apartment life now, I don’t really have anything like a workshop or garage.

I’ve been thinking I could possibly lug my tools to a city park, but I’m not sure about the legality of doing so (if there are ordinances against that sort of thing, or if some woodworking tools would constitute a weapon in a public place), and I would at least need some sort of vise or press to hold the work steady (I usually use planes, chisels and a drawknife on my projects.)

Does the city park idea have any gaping holes, aside from lack of a work surface? Has anyone in a similar situation found a creative solution to the problem of urban craftsmanship?

Dusty answers:

Depending on the city, they might have some type of artisans association or guild. You might also investigate a local tech school while it may cost , you could refine your skills.
Here’s a link: http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=urban%20artisans
Good luck, it took 4 moves and several thousand miles to get enough space to rebuild my HO train tables and scenery.

Steven asks…

how do you keep spiders away?

i have this very large pole barn at my house and every time my boyfriend comes over he’s always in it. and i love spending time with him so im out there the majority of the time as well and i wish i could be more active and be able to clean and mess with the woodworking tools and car stuff but no matter how much we sweep and how much we move stuff around spiders are still on every nook and crany ther is its soo bad that every day i have to use the water hose to fill the water dishes for my animals and one day the was a huge spider even on that! naturally i would just let them do there thing and leave them alone but there starting to get on things i use often and im a HUGE arachnaphobic so what can i do to lower the numbers or get rid of them all together?

Dusty answers:

You can apply a barrier of Ortho Home Defense MAX Perimeter & Indoor Insect Killer inside and out of the barn. Clean out the place, if they’re flies or other tiny bugs inside the spiders might be attracted to that so figure out a way to keep them away.

Mary asks…

Picking out a lathe!!!?

Im gunna tell what im using it for and then ask advice for buying one. Im into body modification and would love to start making organic body jewelry. I know nothing about tools or woodworking. Can someone please let me know what you think someone how is new to this should buy? I dont want a huge 500 dollar lathe at the moment, please let me know.

Dusty answers:

You should start by taking a woodworking class. There will be equipment you can learn to use safely, and instruction as well. The amount of time you will actually need to spend using the lathe doesn’t justify the expense, but you will find out what smaller tools you should acquire. A woodworking class will also give you access and training for the other main power tools such as bandsaw, router, drill press, sander, etc.

Lisa asks…

Can I build a decent dog house with skill saw?

Before I get too into this project, do you think one could make a decent dog house with basic woodworking skills using a skill saw as the only power tool? I’m not trying to build something to keep our dog warm, it actually needs to be vented (we live in Florida). Your opinions?
So far I’ve gotten some great answers!

Some of you, however, need to grow up. I made it pretty clear by saying a skill saw was the only POWER TOOL I would be using. Using common sense you would know I did not mean I was going to build a doghouse using Skills Saws, rather use a Skill Saw as a tool to build a dog house.

Dusty answers:

With a circular saw, you can easily build a dog house. As long as you have the skills to cut a straight line, the entire project should take you an afternoon. Remember though that a circular saw can only cut a straight line. If you want to arch the opening, you will need to use a jigsaw. For appearance cuts, such as the siding, make your cut from the back side of the board or sheet of plywood. A circular saw will tear out the wood on the upside, so flip the board upside down. Good luck, and work safely.

Maria asks…

What Should I get my boyfriend for Christmas?

He is really into his Xbox 360 and love shooting games like Halo2 and Gears of War. He also is a Carpenter. But already has alot of tools so that leaves me all out. For his Birthday I got him a 37 in LCD Tv. I dug a whole with that one. I can’t top that. Not now anyway….? Please help!!

Dusty answers:

Well you can get something to help relax a hard working body like a body messager, foot messager (slipper) especially while he is playing his game. Things like that for a start.
Plus tools can always need a place to be storage for a neat arrangement.
And for those games they have game chair that has stero for men pleasure LOL.

Ruth asks…

What truck would be best for me?

I am 15 and I want to get a truck soon. I want to be a carpenter after highschool so I will have carry tools a material around. But while I’m in highschool I would just use it for driving around and burn outs and stuff like that. Thanks

Dusty answers:

I’d look into a Chevrolet Silverado 1500. It’s a great everyday driver but can carry a lot when you need it to. If you go to the Silverado’s website you can look at the towing and trailering guide to see each model’s capabilities. Good luck with your vehicle search!

Thanks,

Robert asks…

r YOU a TAX expert? help me, a lost student?

Finch Construction Company provides its employees who are carpenters w/all the required tools. However, the company believes that this has led to some employees not taking care of the tools and to the mysterious disappearance of some of the tools. the Company is considering requiring all of its employees to provide their own tools. Employee’s salaries would be increased by $1,500 to compensate for their addt’l costs.

Write a letter to Finch’s managment explaining the tax consequences of this plan to the carpenters.
I did say I was a LOST student right? I’m asking for a basic idea here. geesh!

Dusty answers:

You cannot be a future CPA if you are having others do your homework. Can you even honestly believe that you truly want to be a CPA when you do not even have the desire to put forth your own effort towards answering this question?

Jenny asks…

building a guitar neck- how to:through-neck, what tools will i need? how do i do it?

Hello, I’m going to attempt to make my own neck for a guitar, which i’ll also be making, i want to do a through neck. I used to be a carpenter, and still do it as a hobby, but what specialty tools will i need, and how do i go about it? what types of wood do i use?
any help would be great, thanks

Dusty answers:

Building a guitar is a tricky thing to do and will take longer than 4 or 7 days. Most guitars take a month just for a lower quality one.

First of all the tools you will need to do this job is a ban saw, A belt sander with 100, 300, and 500 grit papers and you can go higher depending on the design an smoothness desired. And Kiln

Second of all you must have a keen ear or knowing what guitar woods would be the best for making an instrument.

Most wood for a guitar is put in a Kiln to dry out to about only having 5% of the water in the wood remaining. The other most important thing is that you need to have the most Straight cuts of wood and the fibers and the woods should be near perfectly Straight also. This will give the guitar a good resonating tone.

To cut the the weight of the guitar down you will need to have 3 cuts of wood that will make 2 1/2 feet or 2 feet by 2 1/2 to 3 feet rectangle when glued together long ways.

Since you want to make a trough neck the neck of the guitar and the center piece of the wood is actually all one piece which will take some hang working where if it is a bolt on neck or set in neck you can put it on that machine the spin to cut it out (sorry I cannot think of the spelling to it hahaha). So hand working it will Take some time and practice.

Also you will need to get a router with about a 1 3/8 inch bit to cut out a spot to put the truss rods into the neck to hold up to string tension.

Once you got the body all glued together you put it in a kiln to dry for about 3 or 4 days depending on the heat 1 day at max to dry up the glue and keep the wood pressed close to eachother.

In that time you can draw up a stencel of how you want the guitar to look and make it an actual size stencel. When it is dry take a pencile and trave the out line of the guitar body onto the soon to be guitar and take your ban saw and cut it out carefully and slowly. Make sure each cut is smooth ad on the line.

Once you got the body and neck cut out you will want to take your router and cut out the spaces for Your pick ups, knobs, and switches. Also take a drill press or router depending on what type of bridge you want like floyd rose, Tremolo, or Tune – o – Matic.

If you want a tune – o – matic bridge you will use a drill press for the floyd rose and tremolo you will want to use the router. Before cutting out the spaces messure the bridge to the demenstions it is to fit it in proper.

With the router you will want to cut out the truss rod spot and look for maple, or rose wood to build your fret board. Which will be 3/4 of an inch thick in the center and taper off to 1/2 an inch on each side. Which you can do with your belt sander on the smoothest grit you have.

Do not glut the truss rod in place but mount it into the guitar neck with kits you can buy online.

Once you have done all that You will want to sand the whole guitar down to make it as smooth as you want. You want no splinters or shards poking out at all. If so it might make playing the guitar seem like a punishment.

For the longness of your neck a lot of people do not understand about the scale size. Most consider it to be where the bridge to the top nut of the guitar strings are. If that is the case my 25 1/2 inch scale guitar should be actually a 36 inch scale. The scale is how long the neck is. Most guitars have 21 frets that taper off from large to small. IT is becoming common for guitars now to have 24 frets which is exstended range so to make a templet for how large the the fret spacing should start and end will be best if you make them on a sheet of paper to where every fret will go into.

When making the neck of the guitar you will want to get a exsacto knife or tooling chizle and work a thin line before taking a rubber hammer and hiting in the fret wire into place. Note also the top of the neck near the head of the guitar is the thinest spot to where it meets with the body of the guitar is the thickest spot of the neck. To get this a belt sander will need to be used for this. Start with a rough grit and work your way down to a smooth finish with the sander.

Once you got your neck in place mesure up the machine heads and take a drill press and cut the bushing holes into it. Then Screw in or place in the machine heads.

The rest is just mindless electronics and other stuff like the top nut, The wiring of the guitar, type of pick ups, etc. This is all preferance which you can look up online or buy books about this in your local book store.

If want a paint job on it you will need an air brush and ink based paint not plastic like acryllic, You will air brush on the design or color then use a high gloss or matt gloss finish to finsh up the guitar. Do not put the paint on thick or it will effect the sound and make it sound flat.

The only way you will build your perfect guitar is by building them more and more. Till you discover what is right for you.

I wish you the best of luck and would love

Forgot to name the woods to use,
Alder Body, Bass Wood, Maple, Mohogany, or Ash for the best quality. Make sure the woods are aged and settled before working with them Make sure they are stright cuts about 3 inches or 5 inches thick
