Online Woodworking Thrives with 48 Woodworkers: Woodchat Transcript November 2, 2011



Tonight was a great night, 48 woodworkers participated in the new and improved #woodchat – thanks to all who participated!

Remember that #woodchat is every Wednesday at 6pm pacific/9pm eastern. We used Twitter for tonight’s chat, Tweetchat is the best tool for now. We’re looking at moving #woodchat to Google Plus in the future.

The Woodchat Team will scrub through the transcript to create a list of topics, and we’ll cover those in future chats. If you have topic ideas, please let us know by leaving a comment below.

@Seanw78: So, what’s the best for #woodchat , tweetdeck?

@woodbard: What is the best way to set up TweetDeck for #woodchat? I simply added a new column called WoodChat – but not sure

@gerodere: @woodbard that’s how I did it – just a dedicated column on Tweetdeck that checks for new posts with the #woodchat tag

@uppercutwood: @woodbard new column, search term #woodchat, but tweetchat.com is better

@uppercutwood: #woodchat starts in two hours, are you ready to get back in the saddle?

@woodbard: @uppercutwood If I use tweetchat.com as the name of the column, then not much shows up for #woodchat.

@woodbard: @uppercutwood Got it – I am now sendint this from http://t.co/v1SxJABb, where I am at #woodchat. Interesting stuff 🙂 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MBWPodcast @woodwhisperer are either of you joining #woodchat tonight? Note: only Marc has an excuse. He’s singing the Mario Bros. theme.

@hamptonpaulk: @Uppercutwood, did you see the question pass by? #woodchat

@imaginer99: Thank you tumblewood #Woodchat

@uppercutwood: I hope those make sense to everyone. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: That’s the problem with #woodchat on twitter..

@Tumblewood: hard to keep up #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Seanw78 Hey, man, I was born ready… I hope! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Rule number 2: you don’t not talk about #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I’m working on a G+ solution #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @wha64 yep I am ready! You coming? #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: I see this is going to move pretty quick tonight! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @hamptonpaulk has a question: 12′ long 6×6 SYP beams. How to handle them by myself to get to 8′ lengths resawn for the Roubo!” #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Vic – are you following on tweetchat? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @Tumblewood yeah it’s real busy, the posts move quick #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood You can adjust re-fresh speed, it may help. #woodchat

@hamptonpaulk: Hand tools are ok! 😉 #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: To my friends: I’m working in the shop as #tweetdeck progresses. Sorry if I’m not quite on the ball. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: My first visit to woodchat so far so good, but FAST #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @mitwoodworks it always did! #woodchat

@wha64: #woodchat yes Chris. I may bring my new purple heart plane

@Tumblewood: I’m total hybrid …my corded apprentices are my bitches #woodchat

@lucaspeters: I will be alternating between woodchat and #getParkerreadyforbedchat. So if I ask you to put on your PJs, please excuse. #woodchat

@imaginer99: Tweetchat is definitely the best way to keep up! #Woodchat

@uppercutwood: We’d like to move to new technology, but we’ll stay here today. If you’re having problems keeping up, try http://t.co/RvI4yfOP #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @wha64 Definitly! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @hamptonpaulk Those are big beams… can you have the lumberyard cut them down, or bring a battery operated saw… #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @wha64 Bill, there are a couple of us named Chris. If you can address him @HighRockWW that would be helpful. Thanks. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So what topics would people like on the #woodchat topic list over the next weeks and months #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @hamptonpaulk I think you need to take the tool to the wood on that one #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @lucaspeters I’m with you Lucas, putting mine to bed too… #woodchat

@dividedlight: what would the next generation of technology be? G+ #woodchat

@hamptonpaulk: @Tomsworkbench already in the shop. #woodchat

@Seanw78: @TomsWorkbench @hamptonpaulk that or make it a really thick bench #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood Matt – I’m thinking stuff like shop setup, ways of cutting particular joints… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @dividedlight yes we’re likely to move to G+ @tumblewood is investigating. #woodchat

@Seanw78: boys are in bed, wife is out (for the time being) Let’s do this #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @hamptonpaulk DEFINITELY bring the tools to the beams… WAY large #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @FlairWoodworks I suppose it would be too much to ask one of us to change our names….:) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Are there any beginner woodworkers in here that would like a question answered, or talk about shop setup, we’re here to help #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @hamptonpaulk handsaws and elbowgrease, mine were not 6X6, just 4x 6 but that was quickest #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @HighRockWW @flairwoodworks could be chris 1 and chris 2 #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @TomsWorkbench I’ll be joining a joint of the month group. Details on my blog next week or two. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: BRB – gotta put some kids to bed here in Florida… #woodchat

@imaginer99: Matt, I was going to ask how we should handle questions, when are they closed and when to ask? #Woodchat

@MBWPodcast: #woodchat I can only stay for a chortle or two

@sharpendwood: I was interested in #woodchat being a resource for those of us doing it as a business

@Tumblewood: Matt V in for #woodchat

@HighRockWW: #woodchat so what’s on the agenda for tonight, just establishing the new #woodchat ?

@wha64: #woodchat @HighRockWW you could take the D out of your name like I did.

@mitwoodworks: @DJOfurnituremkr That sounds like an interesting group. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Me too. RT @sharpendwood: I was interested in #woodchat being a resource for those of us doing it as a business

@ebeckham29: I know 84 lumber here in FL has resawn several boards for a minimal charge. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: Just popping in to say hi to the #woodchat ers. Have to pop out again, but will catch the transcript. Will there be one?

@hamptonpaulk: @mandfinefurn – kind of what I expected, need to get those saws sharpened. @tomsworkbench, got a local guy? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: So who is making gifts for Christmas? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @mlehikoinen Oooh, great question, Mike… How can we do transcripts? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @hamptonpaulk forget the handsaw, didn’t see the “resawn” part. Circ saw followed by handsaw, then a cleanup with planes/planer #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I agree, we can definitely help chatters that are in business #woodchat

@asliceofwood: i’m doing wine bottle holders and candle holders…just small stuff #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @TomsWorkbench @mlehikoinen Who can type quickly? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @mlehikoinen You should be able to come back and visit past posts though. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @mlehikoinen yes I’ll try to capture a transcript #woodchat

@hamptonpaulk: @ebeckham29 will have to remember that, no way these are leaving my shop. 100+ lbs each. #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @chrishasflair Honestly I’m planning on all my gifts to be made… much cheaper. besides the baby’s toys #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair what business topics would you like covered #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @asliceofwood I may be doing a few cutting boards… #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @ChrisHasFlair I’m working on small boxes that go to a gallery in Japan. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @ChrisHasFlair Ideas but haven’t started yet. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood I can’t think of any right at this moment. #woodchat

@Seanw78: @ChrisHasFlair I am, I just don’t know what yet. #woodchat

@sharpendwood: This might be a place to set up future transcripts http://t.co/xGfplFI0 #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @TomsWorkbench thats a good idea, might have to do a few as well #woodchat

@RenaissanceWW: Hey #woodchat welcome back!

@theboisshop: Hey, is anybody taking minutes? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Luckily, I don’t have many gifts to make so I’m able to spend more time on them. No furniture though! #woodchat

@hamptonpaulk: Do I really need an oscillating spindle sander? #beginners #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @tomsworkbench I’m also making an address sign for the parents #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @DJOfurnituremkr: @ChrisHasFlair Im working on small boxes that go to a gallery in Japan. very cool! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood Hey, Matt.. for business questions… perhaps something about sponsorships/ads on blogs… #woodchat

@jmk89: Do you agree with Bob R and that good joinery means you don’t need clamps? #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Hi Folks! #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @chrishasflair haven’t made a cutting board since middle school, might have to try it again, and a chess board and a bunch o pens #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Not necessarily. RT @jmk89: Do you agree with Bob R and that good joinery means you don’t need clamps? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @hamptonpaulk If you want one, go with the Ridgid.. spindle and belt in one… #woodchat

@hamptonpaulk: Hi Jim #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @RenaissanceWW glad you could make it Shannon! #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @theboisshop I thought you volunteered for that Rob? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Good call. RT @TomsWorkbench: @hamptonpaulk If you want one, go with the Ridgid.. spindle and belt in one… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I’m trying to write down all the topics. keep them coming #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: @hamptonpaulk Do you do lot of curved work? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JimAAshley Welcome Jim glad you could make it! #woodchat

@Seanw78: @jmk89 Kinda the reason I’m making drawbore pins this weekend. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @TomsWorkbench Laptop desk for the wife. She works a lot. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood Vic – you will have writer’s cramp! #woodchat

@HighRockWW: #woodchat I like the cutting board idea but man are they a lot of work! #woodchat

@RenaissanceWW: First results of working with Fijian Mahogany tonight. Almost identical in behavior. Little more pin knots in the Fijian #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MBWPodcast Glad you could make it buddy! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Topic idea: the importance of a physical presence (eg. gallery) to sell furniture. #woodchat

@wha64: #woodchat for presents I’m going to try compound angle serving trays with dovetails.

@TomsWorkbench: @dividedlight THAT should be a good gift! #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Thanks @uppercutwood @hamptonpaulk #woodchat

@Tooltutor: Seconded on the Ridgid. Got one myself #woodchat @TomsWorkbench @hamptonpaulk

@Seanw78: @TomsWorkbench here! here! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @RenaissanceWW How do “regular woodworkers” get that kind of wood? #woodchat

@hamptonpaulk: Vic – if you are here, who is running G+? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @TomsWorkbench @tumblewood or run out of ink #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: hello woodchatters! #woodchat

@hamptonpaulk: Rigid it is. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @RenaissanceWW Jack Plane did a bit on this in the past week, did you catch it? I’ll try and find it… #woodchat

@WalnutWeasel: How often have you used dowels and what success/failure did you have using them? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Can I just say how freakin’ cool this is… There are so many friends I have met over the years… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tooltutor talking about the Ridgid sander #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Going to do the Bell Forest Products paddle type cutting board for xmas gifts #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @pickettfurnitur Welcome buddy! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @WalnutWeasel I’m coming to LOVE my dowel jig.. it’s convenient, and the joints are very strong… #woodchat

@HighRockWW: RT @TomsWorkbench: Can I just say how freakin’ cool this is… There are so many friends I have met over the years… #woodchat

@woodsplinters: One of the most used tools in my shop RT @Tooltutor: Seconded on the Ridgid. Got one myself #woodchat @TomsWorkbench @hamptonpaulk #woodchat

@Seanw78: @JimAAshley good stuff, there. #woodchat

@sharpendwood: Yep! Staying away this year. RT @HighRockWW: #woodchat I like the cutting board idea but man are they a lot of work!

@TomsWorkbench: @JimAAshley Bell has some sweet kits… those paddle ones are very cool. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @WalnutWeasel Not often, I prefer actual joinery. I am a big Krenov fan though. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @jmk89 I think even good joinery needs clamps. I need something to hold the work still while I brad nail (joking) #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WalnutWeasel #woodchat Rarely use dowels in favor of pocket holes or biscuits. Can’t get them to line up well.

@ChrisHasFlair: @sharpendwood @HighRockWW Are cutting boards really THAT much work? Compared to other things? #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: is there a topic this week or just free form? #woodchat

@kweinert: @uppercutwood The orange one only available from HD? I use it a lot and really like it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair Yes, as @renaissanceww they are a pain and the glueups take a long time. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @pickettfurnitur Sorta freeform tonight #woodchat

@jmk89: @uppercutwood I agree – I think Bob was going a bit far #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: I agree. Don’t like dowels one bit. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @pickettfurnitur Free form, and trying to come up with topics for future #woodchat meetings

@HighRockWW: @TomsWorkbench @walnutweasel I have always used my dowel jig when a project allows. It done right can be a strong joint. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @pickettfurnitur seems free form so far #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @RenaissanceWW here it is: Would The Real Mahogany Please Be Upstanding | Pegs and ‘Tails http://t.co/pf1clzeb #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @TomsWorkbench @seanw78 cool, first crack at giving out self made xmas gifts #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @pickettfurnitur The topic is “what should future topics be” and “what tech would people prefer” #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: good evening #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @pickettfurnitur I think it’s free form to get started and select topics for future chats. #woodchat

@jmk89: @uppercutwood @RenaissanceWW For me go to the local timber merchant and pay $10 bf #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @pickettfurnitur I don’t like dowels, or biscuits. Who wants to buy my biscuit joiner? 🙂 #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood #woodchat yep, the sander. very versatile tool. Makes dust faster than I can suck it up.

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood Then you need some wider boards! #woodchat

@sharpendwood: @ChrisHasFlair One is not bad, but as Marc said on WTOR…they multiply 🙂 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JustSqEnough Good to see you here David #woodchat


@Tumblewood: @jmk89 NO..but, good japanese joinery means no glue required #woodchat

@dividedlight: @WalnutWeasel I use dowels to join blank segments for curved work. Always successful. #woodchat

@ebeckham29: how are Veritas dovetail saws? I noticed woodcraft started selling them recently but haven’t ever tried them. #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: OK, then. Advice wanted: I have a Lamello Biscuit Jointer, but tempted to upgrade to Festool Domino. Opinions? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @Tumblewood: @jmk89 NO..but, good japanese joinery means no glue required #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: @uppercutwood thx, its good to see a nice turnout here! #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: So, lets get some topics listed for future chats 🙂 #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ebeckham29 I have one of the Veritas DT saws… one HELL of a great deal. Nice saw… #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @ebeckham29 #woodchat never used one myself but always hear great things about Veritas

@ChrisHasFlair: @pickettfurnitur I have a friend who loves his Lamelo and doesn’t quite get the appeal of the Domino. I’m the other way around. #woodchat

@dividedlight: I don’t have G+ but I could work on that. Already hooked on woodchat. #woodchat

@imaginer99: Could we do a separate trial in other places such as G+ , see what works the best @uppercutwood #Woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @pickettfurnitur Do the Domino.. biscuits are OK.. .you can get a good BJ for $100 (the Ryobi) #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @TomsWorkbench @ebeckham29 I second Tom here. Love mine. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @ChrisHasFlair @sharpendwood I would say it has to do with how your shop is set up. If I had a drum sander for instance… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr agreed @tumblewood is handwriting them. We may have to capture them from transcripts. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Um… what? RT @TomsWorkbench: @pickettfurnitur Do the Domino.. biscuits are OK.. .you can get a good BJ for $100 (the Ryobi) #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @dividedlight there is hugh amount of ww folks on G+, definitely check it out #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @TomsWorkbench: @pickettfurnitur Do the Domino.. biscuits are OK.. .you can get a good BJ for $100 (the Ryobi) #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @pickettfurnitur #woodchat Domino is very strong compared to a biscuit but not always necessary. Think you’d still want to keep the biscuit

@RenaissanceWW: @MansFineFurn yep I saw it, he cited some of the same sources I did in my own post. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @HighRockWW Or a hand plane. #woodchat

@ebeckham29: Thats all I needed to hear, for less than 100$ I was thinking about it soon. Just have a old walmart/stanely hand saw. #woodchat

@jmk89: Topic – where should we be looking for new inspiring design ideas? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ChrisHasFlair Uhhh, yeah I realize what I just typed… #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: do you use the domino on furniture or just casework? #woodchat

@dividedlight: @pickettfurnitur I love my lee valley dovetail. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @tomsworkbench proposed 2 topics: shop setup and cutting joinery. I’d also add “strategy for buying tools” #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @jmk89: Topic – where should we be looking for new inspiring design ideas? #woodchat

@kweinert: #TopicIdea Things you can do in a small shop (mine is microShop, 80sq ft or so) #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: @TomsWorkbench Tht would be biscuit jointer for $100, right! #woodchat

@RenaissanceWW: @uppercutwood it’s tough now because the harvesting has really just begun but expect more in the coming years #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @TomsWorkbench Oops #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yes. RT @pickettfurnitur: do you use the domino on furniture or just casework? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: By that, I mean both. RT @pickettfurnitur: do you use the domino on furniture or just casework? #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @uppercutwood Good topics #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @mitwoodworks Yuppers… WOW! #woodchat

    I have a possible topic in the business category. I do mostly contracted or commission work. I live in a very rural area so between buying supplies, meeting with customers and commuting to projects I drive a lot of miles. Driving is really expensive and eats a lot of time. I’m interested in ways I can close the gap between total hours worked and billable hours. Other areas that are currently not very profitable are researching hardware etc online, drafting / design time, estimates. I’m curious if others bill for some or all of this time.

    Really enjoyed the first woodchat.
