Your Questions About Woodworking Tools



Michael asks…

What the hell do I buy my boyfriend for Xmas?

I was planning on getting him this:

http://www.hayneedle.com/outdoor/outdoor-decor/weather-stations_weemsandplathtrysailweathercenter.cfm?srccode=cii_23393768&cpncode=24-117663237-2&source=channel_intelligence_amazon

But decided that its a stupid gift, right? I mean, he doesn’t have a boat and you can just look at the weather on TV, right? I figured it’d be something nice to put on the wall since he just bought a house and doesn’t have any decor, but idk anymore…

HELP!

(He’s into cars, woodworking, and most mechanical things) (He already owns every known woodworking tool)

Denny answers:

Your right you should buy him something for the house
when I want to buy a gift for a friend for there house or office I go to Ikea, Ikea always inspires me
they have cute plants (I think)
good luck

Sharon asks…

Ugly baseboards help!?

My Metal baseboard enclosures are dented rusted and ugly. I could remove them sand them pound out the dents and repaint them but that is alot more work and expenense than you may realize. I have seen just the metal enclosures a lowes but I can not bring myself to spend the money. Just the enclosure for a 6 foot section for example cost about $60. The enclosure with the piping and fins cost only about $10 of $15 bucks more. Are there any other cheaper replacements out there? I thought about building them out of wood ( I probally have every woodworking tool known to man available to me) but I know the wood will expand & contract & eventally warp and look bad also. any suggestions???

Denny answers:

I don’t know about the cost but have you considered a friend or contacting someone in the plumbing and heating business that may have access to a maching they use to bend sheet metal to make ductwork? Might be able to rent the machine too. May or may not be cheaper…

Donna asks…

boyfriend christmas ideas?

Ok, it’s really hard to get the perfect gift for my boyfriend cause he likes so much. I want to get him alot of things that are on the cheaper side instead of one big thing that’s expensive. He is a firefighter and loves stuff like that which i already got one thing for him in that category. He like tools and woodworking building things. He doesn’t have a fovaorite football team or anything, but what are some ideas of things i can get him and it doesn’t have to be tools or firefighting things just give me some ideas. Person with the best present ideas will win best answer. Thanks everyone!
also i want to get him something he will actually use or look at alot not something that going to sit on a shelf and collect dust.

Denny answers:

It’s smart to start now and you don’t have to feel rushed. You can get him gifts that costs money and gifts such as a book you of tickets that you create such as ( 1 back rub) (1 ticket to shout) 1 ticket to choose the movie you both will go to) those are examples.

I think original gifts always get reactions that you want to catch on camera. Take him on a little getaway, rent a hotel room and have that in a box showing a romantic getaway for two.

Robert asks…

Can someone give me an idea for a project?

I have 2 “1 x 4 x 5′s” and 1 “1 x 4 x 3″ and other various pieces of scrap wood. I’m just learning woodworking and I’m trying to get started without spending a lot. I have a circular saw, a jig saw, drill, hammer and other tools. Thanks for the help.

Denny answers:

You might start by making a simple tote box to carry your tools in. Use the wood to make a rectagular frame and carrying handle.

Carol asks…

San Diego knife law question…?

So, I do woodwork on boats for a living and I want a freakishly stout work knife that can be a pry bar, chop through screws… that kind of stuff. I have to do a lot of picking, poking, cutting and prying when I go to look at potential jobs. Leathermans are okay, but break too easily.
I’ve done tons of research and this is what would be an excellent knife for doing the stuff that I wouldn’t dare do to my woodworking tools – http://www.thekershawstore.com/Zero_Tolerance_0301_Ranger_Green_Folder_Knife_p/zt0301.htm
(look up the tests on youtube… quite an impressive blade)
I grew up in the sticks where everybody had a knife, most had guns, you didn’t have to lock the doors and people were polite.
San Diego is a different scenario entirely and I’m wondering if this knife would just be asking for a police beating.
I’m a utilitarian kind of guy and want a workhorse knife that won’t break like my other ones have. I tend to just carry one knife for EDC and work stuff just so I’m more proficient with it when I need it.
I like routine with my blades, not a fan of one for work and one for strolling.
So, I get home from work, shower, change clothes, clip on my Kershaw 0301 and take my dog for a walk through the park.
Is this illegal with this kind of knife?
Yes, I’ve tried to look it up but I’m not the best internet sleuth. I’m not too sure how to interpret what I’ve found (not much) about the local knife ordinances.

Denny answers:

Simple…… Carry a picture of the knives you would like to carry…… Or draw one……..walk into the nearest police headquarters and talk to the desk sergeant or several police officers…. Record their name and badge numbers …..and keep a brief diary of the event in a notebook…. Then follow whatever they suggest…

Police have to enforce the law…. So they must be familiar with the law….talking to several officers will preclude ONE being a dud….recording it will prove you were trying to comply with the law….if you are ever taken to court it will prove to the judge you are a law abiding citizen who was trying to obey the laws

They say “ignorance of the law is no excuse”….. But when you go out of your way to find out the law and obey it…..no reasonable judge will ever punish you

There are many places that will make a knife specifically designed by you to do the kind of work you want done….. Jim Bowie made his own knife why not you

Donald asks…

In a spot of hot water over Home Surgury practice. Advice?

Here’s the situation…I practice Home Surgury on low income seniors and people with no health insurance. I do this out of my garage mainly, although will make house visits. My operating instruments are basic woodworking tools, X-acto knives and a Makita cordless drill. I’ve had pretty good luck… simple procedures like appendectomies, tooth extractions, simple amputations and goiter removals…and would like to branch into knee replacements and gastric bypasses after reading up on a few techniques . Business is good, with only a handful of complications and complaints. While performing a routine gallbladder snip and stitch, I believe the battery from my cordless drill became disengaged and slipped into my patient. I can’t find it anywhere (luckily they come with two batteries). I haven’t said anything to the patient, but now he complains of pain and swelling, the swelling is in the exact shape of the battery. Should I risk a lawsuit, not really being a doctor? Or keep quiet?

Denny answers:

LMAO!

Surely you noticed that once the battery fell off, you no longer had power for your drill.

Plus, even a ham-handed garage surgeon knows that you don’t drill a gallbladder! That operation clearly calls for the X-acto, twist ties, and some super glue.

You’re not spending enough time on the computer researching technique, darling.

But seriously, the battery would cause death within a day or so, not pain & swelling. So your battery is somewhere on the garage floor, not inside the patient. To prevent this in the future, switch to laproscopic surgery – you just need some flexible tubing and a webcam and you’re set.

Linda asks…

noises giving my goosebumps?

Some noises give me horrible goosebumps and make my whole body feel weird. The noises are usually things scratching together like a saw grating metal or someone rubbing their hand or nails across those holographic things with the grooves. I can’t stand it. I recently had a demo in class with a lot of metal and woodworking tools/machinery which made my nerves tingle. Is there any way I can control it? I want to work with those materials in the future but just thinking about the noise chills my nerves a little.

Denny answers:

Sometimes certain noises will make people cringe, like nails on a chalkboard. For me, it’s the sound of styrafoam rubbing together. Ahh! Lol. Sometimes it can give you goosebumps, or make your chest hurt. Desensitation might work for you. If you are calm and slowly exposed to the noises, sometimes you will gain a sort of resistance to them. If that does not work for you, you can try to block out the sound by imagining something else. This is a problem that is common and often takes time to get over. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more helpful. I’m not sure there really is a solution, but getting used to or avoiding the noise.

Carol asks…

Dose any body know of a company called Stot Corp in the USA?

They sell woodworking tools.
I ordered a tool via internet last October, and paid with M/Card, The web site promised a money back gauratee if not satisfied.. The tool never arrived.. They had no trouble taking my mony but apparently can’t send orders O/Seas. I live in Thailand.
Early in Dec I received an Email to say my money would be returned.
I have sent them Emails but they dont go through.. I have sent a letter via snail mail, no answer ,and have contacted their feed back site but am still waiting for my money..

Ruth asks…

Gift idea for man involving woodworking & creativity?

The hubby developed a new interest in woodworking recently when helping out another with some projects. We do not have woodworking materials at our place and we live in an apartment so no garage etc. to work in. It would have to be a small enough project that it could be done in the apartment and he is very creative/artistic so if it involved some sort of design aesthetics after etc. would also be nice. Don’t say bird house lol. I would need to get him materials and tools. We don’t have tools minus the normal hammer, screwdrivers that every house has. So not something that is going to require tons of money on tools because we really can’t be having some circular saw up in an apartment anyways :-) I just want to get him a woodworking project that he would enjoy. This is one of my ideas for his birthday or fathers day coming up, so not much time till then. Any ideas please share and if you could, include the materials/tools I would need to get as I know nothing about woodworking.

Thanks!

Denny answers:

Portable work bench that clamps projects, chisels, jig saw, mitre saw, electric sander, assorted screws or nails, project books can be good. Any of these he should like. Nothing more satisfying than creating things.

Mark asks…

New to woodworking- any tips?

I want to make a menorah for my friend before december. I have a shed full of tools (my grandfather was a woodworker as a hobby). Does anyone have any tips, plans, etc. that I should know or have before I begin this project? I have searched the web for some plans for menorahs, but I cannot find them. It is meant to be more of a decorative item and will have to have some sort of metal inserts, being wood, but I just want to be able to create it and send it to my friend.
Thanks everyone.

Denny answers:

My tip is to make sure all your safty stuff and first aid kits are up to date before you start.

The horror of my year 8 woodwork class and the idiot guys in the class are still in my mind….. Powersander to some guys face is not pretty.

Sharon asks…

woodworking: a gift?

So, I had originally decided to start my boyfriend on a nice toolset. Now, i’ve delved a bit deeper only to discover that what he is actually interested in is woodworking. He wants to be able to build, and put fancy details on, things like tables, chairs, shelves… the like. We both live in apartments until we’re married, and neither of us have a garage or anything, so my set for him needs to start small. What is a great first tool or several tools that every woodworker should have? What will prove to be the most useful, and what should I avoid? I’ve already got a gift for him for Christmas this year, but our anniversary is coming up, as is valentines day, as is his birthday… so many ideas would be great! Please tell me specifically what to look for, how much it should cost, what the best/worst brand is, and where i can go to get it (i’m in michigan… we have home depot, lowes… and…i think thats it). thanks guys!

Denny answers:

If he really has no tools I would suggest a cordless drill as the first. You want one that comes with two batteries so you can be charging one while you use the other. This is more of a handyman tool, not just for woodworking but it’s probably the tool any woodworker will use all the time. I like the Dewalt 18Volt drills. The DeWalt DC759KA is probably available at your local HD or Lowes. It comes with 2 batteries and a charger. Additional accessories would be a set of drill bits and an assortment of screwdriver bits.

Makita and Milwaukee are also good brands. Stay away from the Black & Decker and Skil, they are`the cheap consumer lines and they won’t last. If you buy cheap tools you will regret it.

Your Questions About Woodworking Tools



Linda asks…

What’s the best brand in table saws for a good price?

My guy would like to do some woodworking projects and he mentioned that he needed a table saw to start. I know nothing about tools so I was hoping someone out there could help. Did I mention I’m on a budget?

Denny answers:

Your question is sort of like asking, “I need to get a car. I’m on a budget.”

What are you going to do with it? Are you willing to put up with a lesser featured or lesser quality, or used model, for less money? Are you going to use it to cut some bookcases and then have it sit for a year, or are you going to use it daily?

There are various categories of saws: (at least in USA)
- Portables such as those used by contractors and hauled around to sites
- Contractor : bigger and beefier, but still somewhat portable, though not easily
- Hybrid – features of above and below types
- Cabinet – heavy duty, meant for continuous duty
- Professional – typically very high end large machines that would weigh several thousand pounds.

Try browsing some of the woodworking magazines for reviews and some ideas. Most of them have a year-end issue highlighting tools.

Personally, Sears would be my last choice.

Sharon asks…

Starting woodworking as a hobby?

Hi,

I recently made a simple gated fence for my backyard vegetable garden. It gave me a small feel of woodworking, and it was something I immediately took to.

I wanted to start off some woodworking from scratch. Simple things like tables, chairs and cabinets to start with.

How would I go about doing this? What would be the bare essential tools that I would need for a garage woodworking hobby shop? Where does one buy ‘better’ wood – cherry, maple, rose etc.

Is home depot a good go-to place for this, or are there better places.

thanks

Denny answers:

Dear Brian Wong

Its very good idea for hobby of woodworking, I think you should try to Pen turning also, its very easy and good for hobby, just search in web video pen turning, you just want a very small lathe for pen turning, you can earn much more money for pen turning,

Please visit my website for Wooden Blanks for pen

Lisa asks…

Woodworking help…?

I really want to get into woodworking/carving, especially carving cool pieces of wood with a dremmel tool. Space is limited in the garage and stuff. any tips on getting started?

Denny answers:

All you need is a good table, a vice, a decent set of wood chisles…and if you want to cheat, a dremmel. Also its nice to have a hammer.

Tip 1:Wood carving is something that isn’t extremely hard to start playing around with. But before you start cutting away, get a sketch book. What ever idea you have, just jot it down. You may see something you didn’t see before, or you may developer better ideas. And don’t stick to the one drawing, take the general idea and rework it into another sketch. No artist gets it right the first time, i’ve seen some pretty bad sketches by Di Vinci, Raphael, Michelangilo, and many others. What made them good was thier ability to learn from thier mistakes. And to more mistakes you make the more you can learn. So don’t worry if you sketches don’t look like a piece of art, they are just meant to be an intermediary between you mind and your eye.

Tip 2:when you are working with the wood, place it in a vice, but this is the tricky part, you must do it in a way that doesn’t create marks in the wood. There are rubber accessories you can by to put on the teeth of a vice to help with this problem, but it is still possible to make dents if you tighten it down too hard.

Tip 3: don’t rush! Make a cut then step back and take a look, see if you did it right, as you get better you do this less and less but you still do it. The only thing that separates the greats from the not so greats are the size, not the amount, of the mistakes.

James asks…

How can i become a furniture maker?

How is it that i go about becoming a furniture maker or a cabinet maker? is it necessary to have a college qualification or can i start out by buying tools and a workshop and setting up my own business with no qualifications and a bit of experience from doing some woodworking as a pretty serious hobby in my spare time. I feel as if i could make most pieces of furniture right now that i would need to but is college going to do any good for me?

Denny answers:

I apprenticed starting in my early teens until I graduated. I then went on, after graduating high school, to work in the trades. I also spent some time working in a medium sized shop where I learned a lot about how to do production type work in a shop. This has served me very well as the shop I apprenticed in in my teens was a custom shop in which 50% of the work we did was antique restoration and repair with very little emphasis on production work.

I did not take college classes for furniture/ cabinet making but I did take business classes which you will also find to be very valuable. My shop started as a by product of my contracting business and has grown to become where I spend the majority of my time now. I have invested a lot of money into the shop and my reputation was developed from products I designed and fabricated for clients and other contractors. We produce a wide variety of projects from highly customized items to production type items. The difference between doing it as a hobby and making a living doing it are substantial. You will need to understand design, systems, production, fixed overhead, project overhead, taxes, profit, business related law, licensing, as well as the mechanics of how to build pieces.

My recommendation is to spend at least two years apprenticing in a shop while getting at least an associates degree in business administration. When you do start your apprenticeship soak up everything you can and forget what you think you know. I know many hobby woodworkers who can build some beautiful pieces. I don’t know many who could jump from doing it as a hobby to supporting themselves while doing it. Learn the systems a successful shop has put in effect and when you are ready you can modify them to suit your needs. Make sure you understand the basics of running a business as well. Failure to understand and comprehend the numbers is what leads to the majority of business failures.

Chris asks…

What can I build and sell doing woodwork?

I have a circular saw, reciprocating saw, jigsaw, power drill, and soon a router, what can I make that will sale well and where can I sell it? I live in a small town with two somewhat bigger cities nearby. I am new to woodworking but I make quality stuff. I plan on making chests, bookcases, and maybe even computer desks. Give me ideas of things to make with these tools.

Denny answers:

File cabinets, computer keyboard shelf, bed headboard, simple diningroom tables with extenders, bedroom chest of drawers (with four drawers), bunk beds, patio chairs, picnic tables, swings, etc. Realize though that China is making them cheaper than here so you’d have to be approaching a certain marketing area to be able to make sales. Maybe for some things you make you could use used wood. Be sure to decide what you want to make, get your patterns together (dimensions), and then don’t make many of the items unless you have orders for them. And, do your five-year business plan before you start (sba.gov). There is a place called Wood-You that sells all kinds of wood item (unpainted and unstained) and you can get some ideas there as well as wood projects online. You could work like at Sears of Home Depot (maybe making) and installing kitchen cabinets, doors, garage doors, etc.

Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



Charles asks…

Why would my boyfriend hide baby-wipes, a hand-held massager, whiskey, and a Field and Stream magazine?

My boyfriend spends hours after work in the backyard shed. Tonight I went out there and found the above items out on the counter. There is mostly tools, diving gear, manly stuff out there, but the “massager” and baby-wipes we usually keep in the bedroom. The Field and Stream magazine had pictures of fishermen in it. What should I think? What should I do? He’s a 41 year old carpenter who is very masculine and wants sex with me every day, sometimes 2 or three times a day. But I have a really weird feeling about what I found.
By the way, I am a female. I don’t know why they put a picture of a guy next to my question. So if he is looking at fishermen, then he has gay fantasies? Is he putting the vibrator up his backside? He’s never looking at other guys, usually he checks out every chick that walks by, but maybe he’s hiding his gay needs deep down inside.

Paul asks…

finance problems with the tax man and the bank. what do you do?

my brother is a self-employed carpenter and has very little work at the moment. The bank, Lloyds TSB are charging him £300 per month for being over his overdraft limit (he’s about £600-700 overdrawn) and he also has a tax bill to pay. He has told the tax office that he has changed address and they still keep sending letters to my parents house. They asked him to pay £400 per month but he explained to them that he has no work and could only give them £100 per month, they keep sending letters saying he hasn’t payed the “agreed” £400. The last letter was to say they will be sending the bailiffs in as he hasn’t kept up with the “agreement”. He doesn’t own a car, he rents a room, and apart from his tools and the clothes on his back, doesn’t have anything for the bailiffs to take. What can he do?

Denny answers:

Two options. Can he get an agreed bank loan to clear debts? This would be cheaper than the rate with his overdraft, and would probably be less than the interest HMRC would charge on his tax bill.
Otherwise write to HMRC Recovery Section (from where he is getting threatening letters) showing new address. Explain the position as regards work, and summarise his income/expenditure. Tell them he has no assets. Tools of work can’t be taken for distraint. Make an amended offer. Do this by letter, then there’s no argument as to what was said over the phone. HMRC do have the option not to accept his time to pay, and could either take him to County Court or make him bankrupt. It would probably be in HMRC’s interest to accept a revised offer. They probably wouldn’t get any more from a County Court judgement, and if they made him bankrupt, they would get even less. If they do take legal proceedings, the interest charge doesn’t increase after that date, otherwise interest continues to accrue until he settles the debt.

Maria asks…

dorms vs commuting to college?

hello everyone, i’m 22 years old and will be going to college for the first time this spring semester. i just moved back into my parents’ house because of unemployment, the commute from there to campus would only be about 9 miles.

this was my original plan, but all of my friends keep bugging me about how i’ll be missing out on the whole “college experience” and how dorm life is some of the best years of their lives.the way i see it i’m not missing much. i’m 4 years older than most freshmen and the allure of freedom and being on your own is long gone. besides, i don’t have the patience to deal with a bunch of rowdy drunk 18 year olds.

second, there’s the matter of work. i’m a carpenter/concrete finisher by trade, i know i wont make 80 hours a week like normal plus 12 credit hours of schooling, but as long as my grades don’t suffer i plan on working as much as i can. there’s no way i’m leaving $2k worth of tools in the trunk of a car in a busy university parking lot, i’d stash them at my parents place which defeats the whole purpose of living in the dorms.

do you think i’m missing out? if not what do you think is a good way to break the news to my friends?
thanks :)

Denny answers:

It sounds like you’re a lot more mature and wise than your friends. So what if you miss out on dorm life. Dorms are training-wheels for kids to get their first significant experience living independently. You already have that experience, and with the economic environment, it sounds like you know that the real world is a lot less about partying but about working, saving, and making plans to improve your future. That’s why most adult reentry students have higher GPAs and are better students than the teenagers fresh out of high school. You’re lucky that you have parents that will allow you to save a tremendous amount of money by commuting to school. Sure, you’re missing out on dorms. Adults can live with that decision without much of a second thought. We all have to miss out on some things to do other things. You are also missing out on spending more time in your trade to make more money in the next several years – and that’s a good decision if you use the school to improve your career, like perhaps by studying business, entrepreneurship, marketing, finance, business law, strategic planning, computer business software, and other topics that might let you build your own business as a contractor, if that’s the path you choose. Sometimes you just need to focus on the path you think is best, even if that means other paths are closed off to you, since you need to make the decision at the fork on the road as you come to it. If you want a way to confirm your choice, just look at the price of dorms. They are usually tremendously expensive, have little or no privacy, and sometimes have addition restrictions like mandatory meal plans. See if the campus has an adult-reentry office, as they often have special study areas and events for adults.

Donald asks…

How do I tell my girlfriend?

That her dog, Buggles, is better at oral sex than she is and I prefer Buggles to her?

This sounds kind of gross and I guess it really is, but that’s the way things work out.

I’m a Carpenter, I was working a gig where I received a slight injury to my penis, which was scary enough for any guy working with power tools, but we were fortunate enough that it wasn’t too severe, just a slight cut along the shaft.
My girl has a strong belief in homeopathic/natural cures and she suggested honey as a means to help the cut heal faster as honey is anti-bacterial so it fights infection and promotes faster healing.
So, I coated my penis with honey and put a light gauze wrap on it and went to sleep.

All I faintly remember was having a sex dream where I was getting the best bj I’d ever had, I woke up when I had one of the most powerful orgasms in my life, to my complete shock and disgust was Buggles between my legs licking me like a lolly pop, she’d obviously smelt and been attracted to the honey on my penis, which she’d licked off and kept going.

I’m sorta disgusted with myself that I’d enjoyed it so much, before I saw what had caused it, but now I can’t help myself, when my girl’s not around I get the honey out, slather myself up and let Buggles blow the bugle.
For a Boxer, she gives the best bj I’ve ever had in my life, she so outdoes what my girlfriend does when giving me head that there is nothing I can use to compare it, I’ve become addicted in a sick way, I wont even let my girlfriend suck on me anymore and she’s confused, she doesn’t know why I wont let her and I’m embarrassed to have to tell her that “Honey, Buggles gives better blow jobs than you and so I’m making a switch…”

What do I do about this?

Denny answers:

She’ll be relieved to have that task marked off her list…

Be careful about striking if you are not in a Union, because I think it means that you are not protected. I think if you’re not in a union and it is an ‘unoffical’ strike you could loose your job.

what do you think of this joke ? What is the time?

A man is strolling past the mental hospital and suddenly remembers an important meeting.

Unfortunately, his watch has stopped, and he can not tell if he is late or not. Then, he notices a patient similarly strolling about within the hospital fence.

Calling out to the patient, the man says, “Pardon me, sir, but do you have the time?”

The patient calls back, “One moment!” and throws himself upon the ground, pulling out a short stick as he does. He pushes the stick into the ground, and, pulling out a carpenter‘s level, assures himself that the stick is vertical.

With a compass, the patient locates north and with a steel ruler, measures the precise length of the shadow cast by the stick.

Withdrawing a slide rule from his pocket, the patient calculates rapidly, then swiftly packs up all his tools and turns back to the pedestrian, saying, “It is now precisely 3:29 pm, provided today is August 16th, which I believe it is.”

The man can’t help but be impressed by this demonstration, and sets his watch accordingly.

Before he leaves, he says to the patient, “That was really quite remarkable, but tell me, what do you do on a cloudy day, or at night, when the stick casts no shadow?” The patient holds up his wrist and says, “I suppose I’d just look at my watch.”

Paul asks…

need help with English- Poetry. PLEASE!!!?

the poem is ” I Hear America Singing” :
hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs

In “I Hear America Singing,” what is the meaning of the line “Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else”?
1) The song each worker sings, like the task he or she performs, fully expresses his or her own being.
2) No two workers ever sing the same song.
3) Each worker makes up his or her own words to whatever song comes to mind.
4) The workers are singing about the tools and equipment that belong to them.

When Walt Whitman writes in “I Hear America Singing” that he hears the ploughboy’s song “at noon intermission,” what does he mean by intermission? 1) entertainment
1)entertainment
2) lunchtime
3) recess
4) vacation

please, I really need it. THANKS

Is it impractical to build a large table out of real ebony wood?

I love the look of gabon ebony, but I don’t know much about it or woodworking. I guess I’m asking if money or tools aren’t an issue, is it still impractical? Are there other factors I don’t know about, ie weight or hardiness?

Denny answers:

It is very impractical. The size of ebony lumber is very small requiring a great deal of glue ups. It is very expensive and currently controlled because of environmental considerations. Finally, it is very, very hard and difficult to work. It eats up tools like you are cutting concrete.

Http://www.woodworkerssource.com/ebony_gaboon.html

You can get a 4 by 8 foot sheet of veneer for about $550. See the link below

Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



Ruth asks…

Have you heard this story somewhere before…?

A dirty old bronze age carpenter, already with a number of wives of his own, had an affair with an underage prostitute and got her pregnant.

To avoid the wrath of his wives, the community and her being stoned to death, they moved towns in order to give birth.

The only sure way to restore face and save her life was to claim an “immaculate conception”, and that the child was “the son of god”..

This lie had to be perpetuated and the child soon believed in his own myth. As an adult he was easily able to convert fools and peasants with his earnest preachings, and was soon considered a troublesome upstart by the state and so was executed.

Up to and over 100 years later this myth was edited and refined for use a political tool to control populations and/or foster divisiveness.

The lies, deceit and myths are still usefull political tools today, where the ignorant masses can be swayed to seek links between the church and the state, and many other deceitful and self serving agendas are also fulfilled.

Is this a more likely story than some others..?

Does it make much more sense than some others?

Thanks

Paul asks…

why are asians so scared of everything?

I work in construction as an exterior carpenter and all the painters on site are asian. Chinese as they speak cantonese. When we’re working on the same building and on the same wall, as I slowly work my towards them and get within 10 feet or so they very quickly pick up their paint/tools and get out of my way and work somewhere else. I don’t ask them to move, as soon as I get near them they think they need to move for me. Also If I have materials or tools in their way, they won’t ask me to move my stuff for them. they will either work somewhere else or come back later. Being the nice guy that I am, I move my stuff because I know they are too shy to ask.This happens on every site that has asians.

At the mall I notice asian women are the same, maybe even worse. They make sure they are in noones way and if I get near them they move. They just always look scared and insecure when in public. I’m not a big or intimidating guy, I’m 5’6 and very freindly. So my question is, why are asians so insecure, timid and shy?
I forgot to add I live in canada in a city that’s heavily populated by asians. Most of these people are well established and have been here for a while. Where I live asians are stereotyped as being scared all the time.

How to be a carpenter?

I intend to change my career to be a professional carpenter from current position as an officer in a local office. I have no much time to learn from a seasoned carpenter and no investment either. What I want is I will buy all necessary tools some timber materials and then documents for me to carry self-study. I’ve been interested in home furniture DIY long time. Can any one recommend me where I can find good document for carpentry and home furniture DIY?

Thanks.
Best Answer:

Nice. I wish this will help you to be a good carpenter and house furniture DIYer. Possible you will become rich being a carpenter because there are always millions of people prefer 100% hand-made wood furniture and in fact such kind of furniture has a very high price on the market, and on every market in the world today.

Good luck guy.

Denny answers:

David is right on the money. You sound very ambitious. Furniture design and assembly are rewarding. It is amazing to see the transformation of a block of wood into a finished piece. University of Minnesota has some great trade classes. You will need basic carpentry all the way to final finishes. Your studies will also expose you to a variety of furniture styles and uses.

Locate someone who will mentor you as you study to become a craftsman. Their knowledge combined with hands on experience is more valuable than you know.

Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



John asks…

Why am I here ? What’s my purpose?

I just want to understand why I’m here?
why is everything so hard?
I have no religion and don’t want any I just want a answer as to my purpose. I have three children I know that should be enough but I can’t stand telling my kids “NO” I’m a carpenter by trade and yes I know this is a stupid question after hearing what I have to say but times have been so tough on me after the divorce I lost all my tools in the relocation. I’ve moved on and had another child but now I feel so useless I moved back “home” and nothing is the same here well atleast not for me. No work in the area and money is so tight. It really sucks that our world only resolves around money. I tried to say it doesn’t matter but I can’t lie it does matter. I used to have it made where my ex is from I joined the carpenter‘s union there and thought that was my calling. But now I’m here in this situation I don’t really know what to expect next. I know suicide is not the answer my new girl’s dad killed himself and I just got done reading her Father’s Day letter to him. I’m on here hoping to get a good honest answer. I love my children to death. I’ve fought my way through the “MOTHERS judicial system and prevailed with my children living with me. I wouldn’t know how to answer this question myself but any help will be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Please contact me if you can help out finacially I’m not begging I’m just tired of telling my children No

Thomas asks…

Why do Republicans keep saying Obama does nothing when he can’t because the Reps control the House?

As a result both sides will obviously argue and nothing will get done. Also, Mitch McConnell said that the republican’s goal was to make Obama a one term president. Obama can’t get anything done if the Republicans control the House and disagree with almost everything he does. After all he did pass a national healthcare bill and he is by far better then Bush. Do they just want him to fail? Do the Republicans want to fix our problems or are they going to keep playing politics? Both sides play politics, but Republicans are much worse. For, example the debt ceiling issue, everyone knows it must be raised, but they are arguing to play games.

By the way, how do expect a carpenter to get his job done when he doesn’t have the tools to do his job?

In this case Obama doesn’t have the Democrats to control the House, so he can’t get anything done.

If he uses the executive order to pass laws, then you republicans will call him a dictator and say he should follow the democratic system. If he doesn’t use the executive order right now then he will get nothing done since the Republicans will keep disagreeing with him to make him look bad.

Just vote Democrats into the House so we can actually get things done.

We really are screwed this time.
Please no name calling, lets have an actual discussion.
He has to do something, we are screwed if he does nothing. We can’t just sit around and expect our problems to solve themselves.
No, we had to raise the debt ceiling. Bush caused our debt to rise with his wars and support of big business against the common man for example the bush tax cuts. It is his fault, he inherited the bad economy from Bush. You need to get your facts straight. It is Bush’s fault!

Denny answers:

Tea Party people are in a hurry to do what most Republicans are happy to do gradually: reduce government at all levels to a shadow of what it is today. They are profoundly *anti-government*.

When one looks at the total mess that two Bush/Cheney administrations made of both domestic and foreign affairs, that is not an unreasonable position. They exemplified government at its very worst.

If a homeowner is truly unhappy with his house, he has several choices. He can raze it to the ground. He can drastically reduce it in size. Or he can renovate, keeping what works and adding other good features.

Obama has moved into a house that was left on fire and in a state of collapse by the last tenant. Tea Party people are quick to blame him for the faults of the previous occupant. This is, of course, nonsense.

Have you ever heard of owners putting the blame for the loss of their house on the fire department that they called when they were careless, and a blaze broke out?

I have. They say things like, “I don’t know how they let the fire get away from them!” And, “We called them in time, but they took too long to get here, and expected us to be helpful by staying out of the way, instead of letting us remain in charge of the situation!”

Tea Party people have the Republican party by the short hairs.

They are quite ready to have the entire house destroyed, rather than see a Democratic president get the credit for rebuilding it stronger than ever.

A Tea Party member’s fatal flaw is that he is convinced that he alone sees things the way they are.
Of course, HE DOES NOT. Like everyone else, he sees things the way he is.
The chance that a large number of Tea party people will come to understand this is very small. One must be both more intelligent and more selfless than the great bulk of them are. These are deeply ignorant and desperately selfish people.

It is their false moral rectitude that makes them so dangerously destructive.

Lisa asks…

How does this guitar work?

Here is somethingI found on a forum…

“”My mom promised to buy me a an electric gitar if i were to get 10 or 11 A’s in my o’levels…. but back then o’levels bohat duur ki baat thi. so i decided to make my own electric giatr with a minimal budget….. and heres what i did…

basic tools

1. A Plass
2. scissors or cutter.
3. solderin iron and solder (for firm conncetions..)
4. and well a little experience with electronics…

basic requirements…

1. once again a little expereince…
2. a small bar magnet.. ( not very strong and approximately the width covered by the strings..)

3. a roll of insulated thin wire..the thinner the better…
4. maple wood…for the body…( it might cost u so i used cheaper wood)
5. the 6 strings…
6. a bridge for holding the strings..(i used a peice of wood with six minute holes in it..but if u want quality u gotta spend more money then i did…

7. keys for holding the stringssss….
8. jack socket….

procedure….

well the carving part i left to the carpenters .. i explained how to cut the wood and expect all u ppl to do the same… unless u have a personal workshop……
have the body and neck cut from separate peices of wood..

make sure u have depressions carved into the body where ur MAGNETIC PICK will fit into…

making the magnetic pick…

now that u have a bar magnet…. (aprrox the 1.5 cm by 6 cm)…..and the insulated wire u can begin… start winding the wire carefully onto the magnets height in such a way that the 1.5 by 6 cm side faves upwards…. wind carefully and neatly as this is essential for quality…..make sure u leave atleast 25 cm of unwound wire on both sides…u can stop winding when the thickness of the wound wire around the magnet is about 0.7 to 1 cm thick……

now u need a cover for ur pickup…..these can be easily found in the market….and are very cheap… find the one that can fit ur magnetic pick….

now fit the cap on ur magnetic pick and embed it in the depression in ur gitar body…(best if this depression is 3 cm from the bridge..and is 1 cm deep)..

now u have the pick with two open wires at its ends… scrub or burn away abt 1 cm of insulation from both ends….and connct the wires to the jack socket…( u’ll need a depression for the socket aswell)

doing the menial work

connect the neck to the body using a couple of screws and super glue…( have the carpenter do it…)and also have the frets carbed into ur neck….)…

i’m not explaining the wood work simply coz i dint do it.. i used the neck of my old gitar and had the body carved out…..

i’m sure u can figure out how to connect the bridge to body and keys and strings and all so i’ll let that go aswell……

the secret

now ur gitar is ready ….. but heres something u won’y find anywhere….. it’s totally new and totally mine……. but well u can share the knowledge..(if it means getting 10000 points…hopefully..)

i’m sure that theres an audio cassette player in almost every home… and now that its almost obselete i’m sure no one really need s them.. so here what u do,…

take the audio player and remove its head… if ui dont know what a head is ask a technician….the head is connected to two wires.. now its ur turn….take two long wires and connect one two each of wires in the cassette player….now connect the two long wires tO a jack pin (ONE THAT FITS UR JACK SOCKET IN THE GITAR)…..

there u have it now all u have to do it connect any speakers (be it computer speakers or any other) or to ur amplifier via the headphone pin ( where u connect ur head phones to the player) and then plug in the jack pin to the jack socket.. press the play button on ur cassete player .. turn on ur speakers and rock all u want……
