@BCcraftmaster: @Tooltutor I go to my shop every day for 1hr b4 work and 1hr after work. I missed 3 days last year. Xmas thnxgiving anniversary #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @BCcraftmaster That’s dedication! It shows. Been enjoying your tweet-alongs immensely #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @FlairWoodworks We only had drafting class in HS and no local WW clubs while I was growing up. Thankful for the internet today #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: @Tooltutor I have an addictive personality! Its also why I don’t gamble or do hard drugs! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I’ve got what seems like a dozen different projects in the shop. Lots of different tasks to choose from! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WoodworkGuy @FlairWoodworks hand drafting was a lot of fun. Good intro to marking wood. Sad to see them go all replaced by CAD. #woodchat

@amwoodshop: I would love to get feedback about our pen video preview from the #woodchat community.. THANKS! http://t.co/rbwyo562

@Tooltutor: @BCcraftmaster support is important. kids? It seems parents have the most distractions. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I’ve got a story about this project. Table with a Twist: http://t.co/9g3H8qXh #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: @Tooltutor no kids for me. I’m only 28 so there’s still plenty of time for that in the future #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: Love the lines on this table!”@FlairWoodworks: I’ve got a story about this project. Table with a Twist: http://t.co/UBGbCbJl #woodchat”

@FlairWoodworks: Experimentation is fun. Be creative, try something, and don’t be afraid to fail. Failure = growth. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @uppercutwood carry your binder with you everywhere, and into the shop. Those chores, projects, and to-dos will get done #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood My binder is virtual. Got a long list on my phone #woodchat

@Tooltutor: #woodchat talking about not needing top notch tools to produce quality work. I started out with Black & Decker power & swapmeet hand tools.

@JimAAshley: agree, if tired, i usually use that time to catch up on podcasts, or reading #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @JimAAshley Me too, or when I take a break. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: #woodchat in that same vein, you also don’t need the nicest or exotic woods to do something great.

@Tooltutor: @FlairWoodworks is talking about bewaring of Planning Paralysis, you’ll learn a lot more by trying and doing. Have fun! #woodchat
