@uppercutwood: In about a half hour, I get to hangout with the nicest people in woodworking. We’re going to help eachother improve. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Dyami just shared his frame with us, pretty cool G&G inspired. I want to know what he used for the finish. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood shellac. Lots & lots of shellac. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Be back in ten. Let’s start talking design. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke wiped, brushed, sprayed? from a can or mix your own? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ragewalks http://t.co/XjehUYxu #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Question of the day. Drive belt needs replacing on my bandsaw. Should I switch to a link belt style? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @woodshaver101 you should just be able to add the link to the image in a tweet, remember to add: #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Hey everyone, and welcome to those who are here for the first time. Reminder to regular attenders be welcoming and awesome! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ramblinrdesigns I’ve never tried them, but I hear good things! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood aren’t we always [awesome]? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns if the cost isn’t too much, I’d do it. But I think it makes more of a difference on contractor table saws #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn The awesomesauce in here is yummy #woodchat

@WoodwrkersGuide: @ramblinrdesigns Good question, I tried the link belt once, didn’t like it so went back… now can’t remember why #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So, woodchat is freeform. Ask questions and seek help. Tonight’s focus is design jam. Post your project pics and get feedback #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Turned some tops today. Was relaxing. Caught every one too. #woodchat http://t.co/6S830HiW

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 Here is one of your photos: http://t.co/HLPkJpNc #woodchat

@kweinert: Evidently I’m still gathering experience. Once again I turn a recess in the bowl bottom that fits between the chuck jaws I have. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Sorry I’m late..what’s the topic? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr very nice @woodshaver101 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson very cool, gifts or are these for sale? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood Tonight’s focus is a design jam. post pics and get feedback. Although there’s a question about link belts for bandsaws #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @JimAAshley hey Jim! #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Broke the bandsaw resawing oak for wainscot. Good thing I was almost done. Using ship laps and round edge “v” grooves. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Not a furniture project but a good paying one, butter presses Prototype is in center production @ sides: http://t.co/k0v5HOg6 #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Toys for the kids. I wanted to try it out since I saw George Vondriska do it on youtube. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @Tumblewood How goes it Vic? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr so are these to ‘form’ the butter brick? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: I need to make 98 more. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @MansFineFurn Hey Nick… how’s it goin? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I ran my resaw blade until it was dull. Tried the Resaw King..it’s not sharpened correctly – drifts horribly. 3 new on the way #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn Yes, they are for 1 pound bricks. #woodchat

@ragewalks: Did someone say something about design? this a leg from my current project. http://t.co/OXOjhLOd #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr That’s a lot of presses!! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns You know they sell oak Wainscotting? :>) #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I’m here for #woodchat!

@benjamenjohnson: @ragewalks What’s the leg for? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood The company wants custom cutting & serving boards as well. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ragewalks very nice. Spokeshaved? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @FlairWoodworks Aboot time! My Canadian friend! Hehe #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ragewalks looks cool! what is it for? sketches? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ragewalks Interior panel construction? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Hello #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks there’s THAT guy! πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Decided to make my own. http://t.co/B74npvG4 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr cool! Good mark up? I hope #woodchat

@ragewalks: End table legs. http://t.co/DxzDd96e #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke Hey Hey Dyami! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I like #3 best. RT @benjamenjohnson: Turned some tops today. Was relaxing. Caught every one too. #woodchat http://t.co/PUHwfkSf

@ragewalks: End table legs. http://t.co/DxzDd96e #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke Hey Hey Dyami! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I like #3 best. RT @benjamenjohnson: Turned some tops today. Was relaxing. Caught every one too. #woodchat http://t.co/PUHwfkSf

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke there’s THAT other guy #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @DyamiPlotke Hey Dyami, how goes it? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood Yes, it’s a good job. It will finance new furniture, booth for the Fine Furnishings Show etc. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke btw, I’m gonna tally everything, but looks like West vs Mid is about equal for cost. I am excited about the WIACA #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns I’ve never seen different width planks like that. Cool. I just bought the 3″ stuff when I put it in my kitchen #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood I have heard one other case of a “defective” blade. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr very nice. are you finding ways to optimize production? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ragewalks cool..looks nice #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Thanks for the greetings, my friends. Things are well here in the Penultimate Woodshop. How are you? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood I am pretty excited to go. My wife and daughter are going. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr awesome..how goes the Japanese connection? #woodchat

@StudioInverness: RT @uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr very nice. are you finding ways to optimize production? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair #3 also works the best. It was the second one I made. I got too fancy with the middle one I think. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Looks good. RT @ragewalks: Did someone say something about design? this a leg from my current project. http://t.co/OdyVgzp0 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair The rep was cool..”we’ll ship one right out with a return label” #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @benjamenjohnson The different widths have the same face exposure. They vary to accommodate the joinery. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ragewalks Any pictures of more of the project? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @uppercutwood You bet. They are going together smooth as butter LOL. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ChrisHasFlair Nice toy tops Chris. #woodchat


@Tumblewood: @Tumblewood Now I’ll have two Timberwolf 2/3 alternating TPI and the Resaw. I’m good to go!! #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @benjamenjohnson And the 6″ uprights give a frame and panel depth change. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr snare drum!! #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood Good. More work goes there in September. Boxes & jewelry. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr but I still need to know how you use one #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BillGriggs They’re not mine! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: http://t.co/9uJ9uOUk lets see if this picture comes thru #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr Awesome..you’re building a good base #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Since we’re chatting desgn, here’s my 2010 Sawdust Chronicals build challenge piece http://t.co/PozmbPb9 #woodchat

@ryanthefloyd: Hey all. This is my first #woodchat. looks like a lot of fun! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So, does anyone have a design question they’d like input on? Last week we looked at @chrishasflair ‘s new table #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @benaminjohnson They are 1/2″ thick versus 3/8″ for the rest. The horizontal pieces are also 1/2″ thick. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 it sure did #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I caught up with #Woodchat!

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns OK, I see it now, the 6″ divide the fields. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke That piece is when I first knew of you. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ryanthefloyd welcome ryan! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @woodshaver101 yup, looks nice! #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @uppercutwood Here is a video I found: http://t.co/lf2N2xPR #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood the thrill of victory, been trying for awhile #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: What do you guys think of my latest table top I’m working on? http://t.co/LpHIfAEh #Woodchat

@woodshaver101: @MansFineFurn thanks its a slipper chest #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Hey, I made the tops. Way to give credit to somebody else :P) #woodchat

@ryanthefloyd: @uppercutwood Thanks for being awesomely welcoming! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 where did you get the reclaimed oak #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood You also looked at my hall table..but, not so much input. further away. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @Tumblewood It was one of the first (& only) completely original pieces to come out of the current shop #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood How’s the design process coming along? Any progress? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood let’s get the hall table out here again #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr GOD!! I LOVE real butter. I grew up with cows #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr OK now I get it. it would be cool to have a design pressed into the butter. maybe YOUR logo πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood out of a old warhouse.it was 24 inch tall and a football field long,used for a wall bumber #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I love it. Like I said. I’m planning the same reverse match with my Elm planks #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Void in the middle? RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I love it. Like I said. I’m planning the same reverse match with my Elm planks #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair You need a tree to grow up through the middle. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 send the extra my way πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood oh was this the 69 bookmatch convo? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Think so? It’s a window to the stretcher! RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair You need a tree to grow up through the middle. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair No…painting the master bath #woodchat

@BillGriggs: “@benjamenjohnson DOHHHH #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Ha ha… yeah. RT @uppercutwood: @Tumblewood oh was this the 69 bookmatch convo? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @uppercutwood The client will offer designs with the custom molds. These molds are for the starter kit. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair is it going to have glass? or something in the middle? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: http://t.co/zdQz0WLq just finished this cabinet this weekend #woodchat

@BillGriggs: “@benjamenjohnson Just trying to inspire others to your level. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair There’s a hole in the middle! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I think I’ll rabbet in a custom-cut piece of glass. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair is it going to have glass? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I’m planning a gap in the middle and a frame to go away from a live edge. I’ll have to hand draw this. #woodchat

@WoodwrkersGuide: @ChrisHasFlair I like the design, especially the pod shape in the middle #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Say it isn’t so! RT @benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair There’s a hole in the middle! #woodchat

@woodcanuck: Hey #woodchat talking design tonight?

@ChrisHasFlair: Thanks. RT @WoodwrkersGuide: @ChrisHasFlair I like the design, especially the pod shape in the middle #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @woodcanuck Indeed. Welcom Ian. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I was going to cut the outside into an eliptical shape. Any thoughts on that? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: The hall table design start for critique #woodchat http://t.co/21s1A9LG

@ChrisHasFlair: Here’s the link again if you missed it for the 69 match. http://t.co/LpHIfAEh #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair yep..I’m gonna copyright that!! #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: #woodchat hey woodchat sorry I’m late, watching the flyers get beat 9-3. Design huh!

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Level? I’m just learning to turn, I’m Subterranean, It’s lonely here in the basement. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Are the legs in line with the ends of the table? RT @Tumblewood: The hall table design #woodchat http://t.co/0jD0pznp

@blowery: Hi #woodchat. I spent the night making wooden dogs for the bench. Woo.

@Tumblewood: @woodcanuck IAN!!! How’s the bench coming? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i’d say leave it natural #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Wheels falling off? RT @BCcraftmaster: #woodchat hey woodchat sorry I’m late, watching the flyers get beat 9-3. Design huh!

@DyamiPlotke: @Tumblewood I like it Vic. How will the legs be attached to the top? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: As in don’t cut the outside at all? That would be one BIG table! RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i’d say leave it natural #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair Very cool..there was a table shown on twitter today..didn’t send the link home. sorry. but.. bookmatch void #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood something funky about the aspect ratio: Maybe the top needs to be longer (relative to the legs/stance)? #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: @ChrisHasFlair there’s still 20 min left #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Seriously, that does look pretty cool Not sure about functional though unless you put some glass or something there #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood If you find the link, I’d like to see it. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair I can see cutting off the branch ends. I’d leave it as rough as possible though. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair This doesn’t have legs..panel..not as wide as the top. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: What do people use to identify “found” wood? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @tumblewood I’d have the legs be thicker at the top (easier to join to the top) and get thinner on the way down (like animal legs) #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson I think we should learn to accept praise and to give it when needed. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson There will be glass in the middle. I think I’ll cut the outside to a more regular shape. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn I still have the center to draw in on Sketch Up. That will change the balance. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair And that’s only to make it easier to sit around. Although I like its current shape too. Hard to tell how big it is. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yes. RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair I can see cutting off the branch ends. I’d leave it as rough as possible though. #woodchat

@WoodwrkersGuide: @DavidJUlschmid Urban Pau lei #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I’ll try after woodchat to go back and find it #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns But when I cut off the branch ends, I’d have square edges and live edges. I don’t like the mix, in this case… #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns …so I’d probably cut the entire outside edges and leave the inside edges live. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood I like the idea of encapsulating the raw essence inside of a more refined space #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Praise…I can give it but I have a hard time taking it…kinda like criticism #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair you mean a custom piece of glass just in the middle “hole” right? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns The slabs are 8-feet long. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DavidJUlschmid I’ve gone to the dnr,to get a list of local tree species and start from there #woodchat

@kweinert: @DavidJUlschmid This site has a lot of pictures and descriptions: http://t.co/XOIdqqdG #woodchat

@blowery: @DavidJUlschmid understanding wood by hoadley has a pretty good walk through. Usually color, pore structure, grain, and context. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: I’ll throw this one out… thinking of trying wedged mortise/tenon. Are there any species that you need to watch for splitting? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i think cut off branches could look cool if polished up nice #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That’s what is driving the design I’m developing for my Elm slabs #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Yeah, I don’t think i want any funny green stuff coming through the middle. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yes. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair you mean a custom piece of glass just in the middle “hole” right? #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: #woodchat I got the butcher block top joined to the base yesterday. Just need to draw bore the mortise and tennons http://t.co/f8s0irVM

@DavidJUlschmid: @uppercutwood I often find good short log segments and resaw them. But when people ask what kinda wood it is, I can’t tell them #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair What about adding a darker contrasting wood as a thin border around the newly cut exterior? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Do you mean cut off so they are “flush”, then polished? RT @uppercutwood: cut off branches could look cool if polished up nice #woodchat

@woodshaver101: “@ChrisHasFlair i would remove the bark then carve some details like scaling on the edge #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @uppercutwood If you just have a short piece of log. No leaves, just bark, how do u ID the species? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Hmm. I dunno. Not a trim fan. RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair What about adding a darker contrasting wood as a thin border #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns To me, trim is what you add to plywood and veneered goods. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @blowery I’ll have to check that book out. I mistook select pine for oak once. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair yes. shows more of the natural side of the wood. bark and rings on edge, grain on top. hot #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: “Not a bad idea! RT @woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair i would remove the bark then carve some details like scaling on the edge #woodchat”

@DavidJUlschmid: @blowery Thanks, Ben. I’ll look it up. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @blowery Hello, Ben. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @woodshaver101 @ChrisHasFlair I like that idea. Just something to replace the lost bark so it is not smooth. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DavidJUlschmid your hardwood supplier might help you identify stuff, or we can help too with good pics. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: How would you guys join the two together? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I have 2 of the middle slabs. Not full live edge #woodchat http://t.co/mqGesztN

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns @woodshaver101 I could also glue on some bark from elsewhere. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood those are very nice #woodchat


@woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair a flouting tennon would work well #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @woodshaver101 Great idea! Find those with the knowledge and they are usually happy to share. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BCcraftmaster The bench looks good! Any concerns about the top breaking if you pound on it? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair That’s an interesting idea. If you can keep it stable enough. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke The inner cabinet will hang from the top and intersect the panels. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: RT @ChrisHasFlair: I could also glue on some bark from elsewhere. That just sounds wrong. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That was my first idea. RT @woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair a flouting tennon would work well #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair I almost like the idea of rusted iron joining the slabs. It’s ‘natural’ too – organic at least. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Why? RT @benjamenjohnson: RT @ChrisHasFlair: I could also glue on some bark from elsewhere. That just sounds wrong. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Hmm. RT @uppercutwood: I almost like the idea of rusted iron joining the slabs. It’s ‘natural’ too – organic at least. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That’s #woodchat! RT @DavidJUlschmid: @woodshaver101 Great idea! Find those with the knowledge and they are usually happy to share.

@benjamenjohnson: @BCcraftmaster That top looks good. Was it harder to flatten with the endgrain? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: What is the blue tape for? RT @Tumblewood: I have 2 of the middle slabs. Not full live edge #woodchat http://t.co/XPeiJ8lR

@BCcraftmaster: @ChrisHasFlair #woodchat I was thinking I would add upper stretchers, but if it’s gonna break, its gonna break. I spend a lil cash/redo top

@woodshaver101: @DavidJUlschmid i have a friend with 40 acres of woods and the dnr help id some woods,we found some cool wood. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @MansFineFurn I don’t have any pics. Maybe Ill have done for the next #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair I need to know the design direction. refined and polished modern slab, or more natural (but not rustic) #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood I think it’ll be more refined. Refined but rustic πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: off topic: Inerested in the neurobiology and sociology of creativity, read Jonah Lehrer’s “Imagine: how creativity works” #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood Did you see the stretcher? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair I don’t know. when I see bark on a piece I just assumed it grew there, now you’ve got me second guessing that. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair just playing with size #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: off topic: Inerested in the neurobiology and sociology of creativity, read Jonah Lehrer’s “Imagine: how creativity works” #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat high Angeles (55degrees) on my plane blades and a little sweat

@MansFineFurn: @DavidJUlschmid @uppercutwood sometimes smell, sometimes grain type, appearance color, etc. got pics? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson Nothing is as it appears πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair what, you didn’t like the three options I gave you ?!? πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i don’t think I did #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I like a combination of rustic and refined. contemporary. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair Good read. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Here’s the stretcher for those who haven’t been following along #flairww #woodchat http://t.co/DxN8D0ap

@ChrisHasFlair: Me too. It’s fun to build too. RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I like a combination of rustic and refined. contemporary. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair like a refinished old door on a nice house? but not cowboy right? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair dovetailed spline in contrasting wood, Domino (XXXXXL) or …now I’ve forgotten the last one… #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @ChrisHasFlair: Here’s the stretcher for those who haven’t been following along #flairww #woodchat http://t.co/DxN8D0ap @uppercutwood

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair link no work #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Well, the XXXXXL is suitable for the 69 match, but not available for another century. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Access denied for me on the link #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Uh oh. Access denied to the link. Did I say something wrong? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair yeah, and it’ll cost ya #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn I’m wondering if a dovetailed spline would be too much of a distraction. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: be back in a few min folks #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Had to step out. A friend posted a photo of my first car and I got excited, memories: http://t.co/xfmKCAuZ #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @benjamenjohnson Chris!! Get your shit together dude!! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns Let me try another link… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair I’m kinda thinking like “we got this old door off a church in italy, cleaned it up and here’s our table” #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair what about floating it on dovetailed ways, pegged from below to prevent sliding off #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr That’s not a GTO is it? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr that old detroit monster moved I bet! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: 15 minutes to go in woodchat. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn The design I’m working on is a conversion dining/coffee table #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair doubt it, you’d only see it from the end (I’m not talking about a butterfly on the surface) #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr I bet you wish u still had it #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: El stretcher, working! @benjamenjohnson @uppercutwood @ramblinrdesigns #woodchat http://t.co/ypS914hD

@Tumblewood: @Tumblewood I should say for the Elm slabs #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair that’s hot, leave the voids or fill them? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Oh! That changes everything! RT @MansFineFurn: you’d only see it from the end (I’m not talking about a butterfly on the surface) #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood 1970 Dodge Charger πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair see..I picture a contrasting wood on the edges of that stretcher..don’t know why..just do #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: They’re huge. They’ll be unfilled. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair that’s hot, leave the voids or fill them? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 Sure do, that thing was a neck snapper. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair This is going to be one massively heavy table. Hope you have help moving it. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Where do you find these pieces? OK better question where do you find them for a reasonable price? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Bottom edge is live. RT @Tumblewood: see..I picture a contrasting wood on the edges of that stretcher..don’t know why..just do #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson Go find a local sawyer and make friends with ’em! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr oh..see, I’ve never been good with cars..I like to drive, but prefer comfort in the US, since no Autobahn #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yeah… so true. RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair This is going to be one massively heavy table. Hope you have help moving it. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns I can barely move one slab!!! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: I designed a prop for a play. Street lamps for Oliver Twist. I built it today. http://t.co/WFCaPjM2 #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr I had a 1967 dodge charger,sure wish I could of kept it #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair With that great stretcher underneath I’m all for glass in the center so you can see the stretcher from above. Nice. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair OK..contrast wood on the top of stretcher..tie in with the top. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @ramblinrdesigns: With that great stretcher underneath I’m all for glass in the center so you can see the stretcher from above. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Cool idea. Tie it in with what? RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair OK..contrast wood on the top of stretcher..tie in with the top. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns i agree. show that off. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood I could use the same wood on top of the stretcher and for the butterflies that join the top… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair make that stretcher low so it isn’t in the shadows #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair a finished edge treatment on the top #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Hmmm. RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair a finished edge treatment on the top #woodchat

@kelvinringold: RT @BillGriggs: I designed a prop for a play. Street lamps for Oliver Twist. I built it today. http://t.co/WFCaPjM2 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That would help tie it in. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Good point. I still need some suitable legs. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair make that stretcher low so it isn’t in the shadows #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Could the stretcher be cut to reach up into the center of the table and still support the rest? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: pizza is done goodnight all #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @BillGriggs Very cool, Bill. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I really like mixing rustic and contemporary. Not a fan of full on live edge, but like to incorporate it #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: As in thru? RT @ramblinrdesigns: Could the stretcher be cut to reach up into the center of the table and still support the rest? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 night! thanks for coming by #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Keep it subtle? A detail to discover? RT @Tumblewood: Not a fan of full on live edge, but like to incorporate it #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood i agree. now cowboy rustic, more like a refined restored antique church door #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I think that would be too busy #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns I don’t think I can get the stretcher to poke through, but it can peak above the bottom of the top. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Going to cut it on one of your CNC machines? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood sort of, yes #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @uppercutwood: @Tumblewood i agree. NOT cowboy rustic, more like a refined restored antique church door #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Back to the table top… would you leave the ends straight, or round them? #woodchat #flairww

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Yeah, just a thought. Could help fill the gap and tie the three pieces together visually and structurally. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair for that configuration..rounded #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair That could be interesting. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair follow the grain #woodchat

@kring_l: Sorry I missed #woodchat had dance lessons for my impending doo I mean wedding

@ChrisHasFlair: This table has a visually dominant top, a visually strong stretcher… what do I do for legs? Simple & clean? Live edge? Crotch? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair simple clean for sure. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @kring_l hehe #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson Yes I cut it with my CNC outer last night and delivered it today. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns However, the feature of the stretcher is the sides, not the top. So it should be low as @uppercutwood said. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That’s my inclination too. RT @MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair simple clean for sure. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Maybe something out of metal so it doesn’t compete with the wood. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Now you’re talking! RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Maybe something out of metal so it doesn’t compete with the wood. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I’d go for two species. one the top and stretcher,…one the legs, incorporate into the top and stretchers #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair If the stretcher is low, I see legs that match the stretch, coming out at very low angles. like trestle. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns Or maybe black paint? πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Maybe something out of metal so it doesn’t compete with the wood. #woodchat <- Not a bad idea!

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @Tumblewood: I’d go for two species. one the top and stretcher,…one the legs, incorporate into the top and stretchers #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood Good idea. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair stretcher connected to top with simple and clean subdued non visually dominating #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I don’t follow. RT @uppercutwood: If the stretcher is low, I see legs that match, coming out at very low angles. like trestle. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i should sketch something #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair That would be easier to work with and probably achieve the same look. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: “@benjamenjohnson I make lots of Stage props with CNC. I have the local schools spoiled. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Please and thank you! RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i should sketch something #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That gives you three elements..more that that gets too busy #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Exactly! Rule of 3! RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That gives you three elements..more that that gets too busy #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair This should be a dining table..or like I’m doing a conversion table. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Gotta run folks, everyone have a great night! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs That’s cool. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs That’s cool. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I have a wicked lazy-S shaped slab! RT @Tumblewood: This should be a dining table..or like I’m doing a conversion table. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: “Me too..running off to hang with my bud. Good discussion again!

@’ #woodchat”

@benjamenjohnson: Hmmm…. tweetchat is giving me trouble. Oh, well time to catch my son and put him to bed. Great chatting. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns I’ll be tweeting my progress with #flairww and updating my blog. http://t.co/p9PSrtiO #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i just tweeted you my crappy quick sketch #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: goodnight, my friends. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @Tumblewood have a good one Vic! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair Also, Chris..let’s talk about WIA West. I need to make flight plans. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @chrishasflair http://t.co/gFh40pnS #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JimAAshley Thanks Jim..you too! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood Hmm. I think the uprights need to be wider… more substantial. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Lively as ever. Thanks all. See you next week. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood @chrishasflair I’ll buy buckets of beer again #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Bye to all the #woodchat crew who’s leaving.

@ramblinrdesigns: “@ChrisHasFlair Thanks. I’ll try to follow along. Sounds challenging. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair yeah, that’s a quick crappy sketch. illustrating my overall idea. low stretcher, trestle legs, subdued uprights. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood I’ll pass..they were Buds!! I think..I’m a beer snob #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood You gave me a great idea. I’ll carve the legs into trianglular pieces morphing into the stretcher. Think Maloof. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good night #Woodchat. Gotta get a good nights sleep before #140cuse. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood I’ll buy you good ones pickyVic! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood I’m envisioning more pronounced uprights, but not visually competitive. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Wahoo! RT @uppercutwood: @Tumblewood @chrishasflair I’ll buy buckets of beer again #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Chris..we should talk about your design, too. I think you have a great start. As always. Love that you improvise. I can’t yet. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair sounds good to me. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood Sure, Vic. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood Then I’m in #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I may holler at you after Sylvia crashes. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: the chat is officially over, but keep going anytime 24/7 if you want #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Think I can gradually fade from ebonized to un-coloured maple? I want to try! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair perhaps with dye shading? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Perhaps… RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair perhaps with dye shading? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: You guys are getting me excited! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Great #woodchat, guys. I’m off to watch the #Canucks game now…

@BobbyHagstrom: @ChrisHasFlair What the puck is a canuck? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Adios everyone – see you next week. #woodchat

Woodworkers Discuss Projects and Business: Woodchat Transcript March 15, 2012

On March 15 Woodchat got together to discuss projects and business skills.

Woodchat Transcript March 15, 2012 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern

@DJOfurnituremkr: What is tonight’s topic? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @tumblewood @tomsworkbench @dyamiplotke @mansfinefurn Can one of you run #woodchat tonight? It’s my daughters birthday.

@RenaissanceWW: @uppercutwood aw c’mon just start off with “pins or tails firs?t” then walk away. They’ll be busy for a while with that one #woodchat

@Tooltutor: So what’s everyone building now that all your new benches are done? #woodchat debating starting a built-in desk build before the nursery

@uppercutwood: Hey #woodchat I won’t be around tonight because it’s my daughter’s birthday, but please have woodchat without me http://t.co/RvI4yfOP

@Tooltutor: Happy birthday to Mrs. @uppercutwood I’ll be absent from #woodchat too. It’s my wife’s birthday.

@DJOfurnituremkr: Looking forward to a walk with Porter in the woods then some time on #woodchat.

@Tumblewood: I’ll see ya there! RT @DJOfurnituremkr: Looking forward to a walk with Porter in the woods then some time on #woodchat.

@ramblinrdesigns: @sharpendwood What I should be using (to transport on the run) or what I really use, because I use a lot of buckets. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Hi all, what’s the topic tonight? #woodchat

@mamader: evening all #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Checking in, but may have to leave early. Shop project deadlines are looming. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @mamader Hola #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Saw a crazy guy on a motorized scooter today…with a labrador between his legs. That was nuts. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Computer’s running slowly, but I made it to #woodchat.

@ramblinrdesigns: Today’s feed is very slow. Is anybody here? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Is there a topic for #woodchat tonight?

@FromTheWoodshop: @ramblinrdesigns yup. was wondering if I was the only one. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop @ramblinrdesigns There’s at least three of us. That qualifies as a crowd, right? #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: evening all! #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: I talk to myself enough during the day, didn’t want to do it at night as well.. #woodchat

@kweinert: I’m here tonight. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Hello #woodchat small crowd tonight?

@FlairWoodworks: Who’s running the show tonight? Any topic? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: I’m here for a little while. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Well, if it’s just us I think the topic for the night is up for grabs? > #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: So do you work on multiple projects at once, or one at a time? I’m a little stretched out on the multi tasking at the moment. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns Definitely multiple projects. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @FlairWoodworks I was about to ask you the same thing… #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: How often do you take time to modify tools to make them work well for your purposes? #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @ramblinrdesigns typically have 4-5 irons in the fire at any given time #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr whats up dale #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Multiple, I have two cabinet on stands I started more than a year ago. Perhaps this will be the year of completion. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I sometimes find myself going to bed thinking one through and wake up with another one making the rounds. #woodchat

@kweinert: Right at the moment I’m only turning stuff so it’s pretty single threaded. I have glued up some segmented stuff while turning tho. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @ramblinrdesigns I usually have one big project and several small. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @HighRockWW For example, I’m currently writing five different blog posts and have many more drafts started. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 Hi Mark, keeping busy. The warm weather makes the phone ring for some reason. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks Not so much tools, but I create new jigs all the time. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Uh-oh. These dovetails don’t look quite right. http://t.co/TWaAJBtF #woodchat

@woodshaver101: I focus on one at a time just to stay intune with the design #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 Also thinking about getting involved with selling Japanese tools. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr thats a good thing #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: Working on one project always leads to ideas for another! Multiple projects are a way of life! #woodchat

@kweinert: when I was doing flat work (logic puzzles mainly) I did create some special purpose jigs. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodshaver101 Sometimes I run out of inspiration so I set the project aside and work on something else. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @FlairWoodworks with blog post I am the same I always have several in progress, but they are often based on ongoing projects. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Hey guys, have a great #Woodchat. Sorry I’ll miss it. I brought way too much work home.

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks That was a good one. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DyamiPlotke Multi-task πŸ™‚ #Woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 Hows the office job going? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: its hard to make money by jumping from one job to the next.been there done that #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: So, besides participating in #woodchat, what else are you doing right now?

@HighRockWW: @DyamiPlotke it’s ok I rarely make it to #woodchat anymore.

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr its sold waiting for the material to get laid up.may have sold a kitchen also #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @FlairWoodworks putting my daughter to bed. #woodchat

@kweinert: @FlairWoodworks waiting for a segmented stopper to finish drying, trying to turn from a log for the first time. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: outside of woodworking, what’s everybody’s other interests? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 That’s good news. Next week I enter the Ozaukee County Art Show. Hopefully I’ll win another blue ribbon this year. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @kweinert Beware of flying water if the wood is that wet. I rusted my jointer bed from turning soaking-wet wood. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks Building two boxes (fancy), one wavy shelf, two nightstands, painting a house and working at Woodcraft part-time. #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: cleaning out the pellet stove, visit cleaningexec.com for more information #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns How’s it working for Woodcraft? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks i just finished a slipper chest for my wife #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @FromTheWoodshop Guitars #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks Oops, forgot two bathroom remodels on the schedule too. #woodchat

@kweinert: @FlairWoodworks Just cut today. Picked up some plum and ash from tree trimming by my workplace today. thanks for the warning. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @DJOfurnituremkr building, playing or both? #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: There’s life outside woodworking? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks I love working there. I get new leads all the time from walk-ins, plus a good employee discount and free shop use. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @FromTheWoodshop Playing, but hope to try my hand at building acoustics some day. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: No. What made you think that? πŸ™‚ RT @WatkinsWoodWork: There’s life outside woodworking? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DJOfurnituremkr There are a couple high-schools in my area that build acoustics in woodshop. #jealous #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks Also, being around so many woodworkers, you learn lots of new things all the time. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr how about some lessons #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @WatkinsWoodWork unfortunately; the real world isn’t quite as interesting (at least for me).. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Ha ha ha…RT @FromTheWoodshop: @WatkinsWoodWork unfortunately; the real world isn’t quite as interesting (at least for me).. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @ramblinrdesigns @flairwoodworks that brings up a good point. Where so u guys drum up your best leads from? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 I supposed to start teaching my Goddaughter soon. She’s about 7. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @WatkinsWoodWork architects and designers #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @FromTheWoodshop I can relate. All I want to really do is live/ breath woodworking. Real is getting in the way #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @WatkinsWoodWork I’ve been doing renovation work for 16 years. All of my new jobs come from referrals. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @WatkinsWoodWork For me, it’s word of mouth. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @DJOfurnituremkr I have a friend that makes acoustics with http://t.co/8YlMvCrL He made one for Johnny Cash w/ pearl inlays. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @WatkinsWoodWork If you do good work, the jobs will come to you. It also helps to spread your card around in social settings. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: When you make something, do you document the process of how you made it? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: Ive been playing around with designing using the Fibonacci numbers, #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: I feel a little like a fish out of water; my business is about yacht repair (which entails alot of woodworking) but not solely.. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks I’m taking more photos now than I used to. Posting to facebook and g+, plus for my website. #woodchat

@mamader: @FlairWoodworks I try too. But I find myself making progress on it and realize I went over 20 steps that I should have pics #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @FromTheWoodshop Cool! Building guitars, violins etc is a great skill. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @FlairWoodworks I always keep my camera close at hand. I take lots of pictures but still feel I should take more. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks And SketchUp is essential. I try to realistically capture all the joinery there. It helps me plan things out. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Hoping to move more in that direction (woodworking) but too much overhead to make a leap of faith #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: For the bloggers among us, do you feel that blogging about woodworking stuff does anything for business? #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @FlairWoodworks I usually try to take pics as I progress but just started toying with filming the process as well #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @FlairWoodworks No, just interests other woodworkers. #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Hey everyone. Sorry I’m late. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks Shannon’s blog led him into the Hand Tool School. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DJOfurnituremkr It does give you some authority though. Agree? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: nice chatting.got to go. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FlairWoodworks creatively yes; as far as prospects not as much.I find that it’s mostly fellow woodworkers that follow these blogs #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @FlairWoodworks not overly. But I have received some interest from non ww through it. Nothing paying yet but someday #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodshaver101 See ya, Mark. Thanks for stopping by. #woodchat

@mamader: @WatkinsWoodWork I have tried videoing a couple times, I have found it slows me down too much if I try to talk to the camera. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FlairWoodworks Depends of if anyone is reading!! :-O #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @TheRealNeal No problem. We are just chatting tonight. Feel free to bring up any topic you’re interested in. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @FlairWoodworks True. I thinks clients take a look see at times but face to face is still the best interaction. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: That’s just it! RT @FromTheWoodshop: @FlairWoodworks Depends of if anyone is reading!! :-O #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: @FlairWoodworks some day to day pros I know and follow have said no. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Talking about video… could you guys vote on the poll at the end of this post please? http://t.co/XX3W7VKD #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @FlairWoodworks @FromTheWoodshop yes, for me, its alot of work for the 20 people who read it. I only write to document for me now #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @MansFineFurn The more you blog, the more readers you’ll get, as a general rule. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @MansFineFurn Nobody frequents a stale blog. #woodchat

@mamader: @MansFineFurn I hear you there, I average about 6 visits a day on my blog. hard to justify the time. #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: @FlairWoodworks done,I like a mixture of video and written #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: I’m trying to use video to bring people to the website, and provide additional info (blog) to keep them coming back. #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: @FlairWoodworks hey! Don’t insult my blog πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@mamader: @FlairWoodworks Agreed, in fact I need to do a new post on mine, over a month since my last post #woodchat

@HighRockWW: #woodchat good night all. Gotta run.

@FlairWoodworks: @JustSqEnough πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @FlairWoodworks given you’re one of my few readers (I think) you know when I write, it’s not a short bit, it’s hours of work #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @HighRockWW Bye Chris! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @MansFineFurn And video requires even more time. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I haven’t entered the blog world as a writer. Been too busy with everything else. Do like to read others though. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @MansFineFurn Hmm… try posting something and see how many visits you get that day. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Writing makes me think and so I learn a lot that way. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Web hits are all about SEO #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the shear volume of blogs out there. I was following rss feeds for awhile, but I can’t keep up. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop If you want traffic, use these keywords: Laguna, Sawstop. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FromTheWoodshop What is SEO? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns I probably spend 15-30 minutes a day keeping up on 80+ RSS feeds. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FromTheWoodshop keeping them coming back is all about content #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: @ramblinrdesigns yes, my google reader is overflowing #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns Search Engine Optimization. I don’t know much more than that. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: I’ll start making more posts on my blog once I get more involved with projects for upcoming shows. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: You’ve got it! RT @FromTheWoodshop: @FromTheWoodshop keeping them coming back is all about content #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FromTheWoodshop Agreed. Especially quality content. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @ramblinrdesigns search engine optimization (i.e. meta data and key words used in each of the posts, page header and description) #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I do a lot of writing after the noise curfew. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns Quality of information and entertainment value both help. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @MansFineFurn @flairwoodworks Writing blog posts? That’s what the day job is for. Wait did I say that out loud? #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: Cigar time folks, later.. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks I live on an acreage, so I don’t have to worry about the racket I make. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FlairWoodworks you’re fron Canada? I thought the only noise there is from the whispering pines (like where I’m from) πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: No, that’s when I sleep πŸ™‚ RT @WatkinsWoodWork: Writing blog posts? That’s what the day job is for. Wait did I say that out loud? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Yup. I’m 20 minutes outside of Vancouver. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Is that good or bad? RT @ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks I live on an acreage, so I don’t have to worry about the racket I make. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns As in, you’re not forced to stop working. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Question for video watchers; what’s more important: professional content or an entertainment factor (and a little info)? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @JustSqEnough Later, David! #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: Wouldn’t targeting multiple readers of various ww’ing experience be better? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I curious to see how many spambots follow me tomorrow. They seem to be gravitating to woodchat. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Generally, I’m hoping to learn something, but you have to keep me awake too πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks Correct, only sometimes that is a bad thing. I lose track of time when I’m in shop mode. #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: Having multiple posts showing simple projects and some showing more complex in different catagories? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns I just got hit by (at)clarettajukrb #woodchat Spam ’em back!

@BillGriggs: Hello everyone. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @BillGriggs Hi Bill! #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @FromTheWoodshop definitley content, entertainment’s a bonus. #woodchat

@GarageWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Content #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @FromTheWoodshop depends in the content. But overall I would say entertainment. U have to keep them watching. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FlairWoodworks That can be tricky; how much detail is too much? Gear it towards beginners or advanced? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Do it all! Talk about fox-wedged tenons, but explain it from square one. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @BillGriggs Hey Bill ! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Or you could do a two-part thing – Video 1: Basics, Video 2: Advanced #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @FromTheWoodshop @flairwoodworks Exactly. That’s why I cut my GROZ plane review/tune up into 4 pieces. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FlairWoodworks evening Chris #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FromTheWoodshop Detail is great, but video lengths have their limits. Better to have several shorter segments than 1 long one. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I’ve seen enough videos on lapping a sole. RT @WatkinsWoodWork: That’s why I cut my GROZ plane review/tune up into 4 pieces. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ramblinrdesigns Beth good evening. Writing frequently is better than long posts with a long period between posts. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FlairWoodworks That’s an idea; LOTS of editing though #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FromTheWoodshop Hey Andy. What you working on. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop It could be as simple as stopping the camera between segments, but it could be very involved. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: For video, what’s your length limit (how long is too long?) 10 min, 20 min, 30 min, etc… #woodchat

@kweinert: I’ll bet the first one of you that produce videos that link together like the ‘write your own adventure’ books will have a winner. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Generally, 15 minutes. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FromTheWoodshop 10 minutes seems to be about the limit of most peoples attention span. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @kweinert I’ve seen a music video like that. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @BillGriggs Spring has sprung so for me the next 6 months are going to be all about keeping very expensive boats looking great #woodchat

@GarageWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Ten minutes. I break mine up if too long. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @FlairWoodworks precisely. The newbies that haven’t can watch the howto and those that just want the meat can watch the final. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FromTheWoodshop I’d say 20-30 minutes max. If it takes more time, do more parts. #woodchat

@kring_l: hi all just catching up #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: David Savage is experimenting with short segments no longer than 1-2 minutes and unedited. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @FromTheWoodshop I say 10ish. But then again I also posted 1hr up to blip that is getting views #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @GarageWoodworks I’ve found that successive videos lose viewer interest.. Do you see that as well? #woodchat

@atully1: @FlairWoodworks #woodchat I’m not sure if you can tell by this pic how dark the lighter wood turned. http://t.co/DjJBMf2q

@BillGriggs: @kring_l HI Jim. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks That’s too short. Can really cover anything in detail. That becomes more of a commercial. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FromTheWoodshop NO. They work for the WoodWhisperer. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: David Savage’s site is http://t.co/5VcMSBQc and you can sign up for his e-newsletter at the bottom #woodchat

@GarageWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Not really. I do find that I lose people if more than 10 minutes. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns I agree. Too much work to get to the video for the end result. I mentioned to him about making it into a playlist #woodchat

@kring_l: @FlairWoodworks alot of titles are too long and part 1 or part 2 get cut out of description, annoying #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @BillGriggs But, he’s the WW !! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @atully1 Are you talking about the wood in the background? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Time to go visit with Michele & Porter for a bit, see you next week. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop @BillGriggs If he shouted, he wouldn’t have to repeat himself so much. #badjokes #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DJOfurnituremkr See you, Dale. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Anyone ever use wood bleach? I have some maple with a small stain (worm trail?) that I need to get rid of. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FromTheWoodshop Yes he is! But he didn’t start that way. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns SAVE THE CHARACTER πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @DJOfurnituremkr G’Night~ #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: An interactive music video for you to enjoy later: http://t.co/GLipXY70 #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: Ò€œ@FromTheWoodshop: @BillGriggs But, he’s the WW !! #woodchatÒ€ And common. Who doesn’t want to be like Marc? #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ramblinrdesigns Do you use wood bleach to die your roots? #woodchat

@atully1: @FlairWoodworks #woodchat http://t.co/Sg2Qrnjp

@FromTheWoodshop: Other than WW video’s what else do you search for online (video content) #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @FlairWoodworks Ordinarily I would but this is for a commercial space to cover a beam and it won’t look right. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @ramblinrdesigns No, I’ve never used bleach. #blasphemy πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Music. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @BillGriggs Nope. Still a natural blond (but probably not for much longer!) #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FromTheWoodshop Maybe I should qualify this Q; keep it clean!! πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @FromTheWoodshop Yeah, I was thinking that too! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: hahaha #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Ok. Gotta go find something to eat before the #Canucks game. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Looks like we managed to kill a perfectly good hour. I better get back to work now. See you next week. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Damn! RT @ramblinrdesigns: Looks like we managed to kill a perfectly good hour. I better get back to work now. See you next week. #woodchat

@kring_l: anyone have an opinion stanley 62 low angle jack plane for shooting board? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @kring_l Good choice. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @kring_l Make sure the plane is tuned and blade is SHARP! #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Yea, gonna step outside and listen to snow melt and enjoy the clean smell of the woods!!) #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good night folks. Go make something. #woodchat

@kring_l: @FlairWoodworks thanks i will #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @BillGriggs Later Bill! #woodchat

@kring_l: night @billgriggs #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @kring_l G’Night!~ #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @FlairWoodworks Seems like they play everynight!! At least according to your tweets ;-)~ #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @FlairWoodworks wish I could have. Estimating & editing proposals takes focus. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: At a point I will start writing for the buyer. RT @DJOfurnituremkr: @FlairWoodworks No, just interests other woodworkers. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I like how @tumblewood is catching up on #woodchat by himself!

@DozersWorkshop: @FlairWoodworks @tumblewood shoot, I just now got caught up #woodchat

@Tumblewood: And now all caught up. Good discussion. RT @FlairWoodworks: I like how @tumblewood is catching up on #woodchat by himself!

@WatkinsWoodWork: Hmmm only 7 spam bots from tonight’s #woodchat that’s like a new record.

@ramblinrdesigns: @EliCleveland Yes. Woodchat starts at 9pm est, 8pm central, etc. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: #woodchat Is this a good deal on spalted maple? http://t.co/5reEq0gG $31 / bd ft

@FlairWoodworks: #woodchat in 5 minutes but I won’t be home in time…

@ramblinrdesigns: @DavidJUlschmid $31 per BF? Sounds way too high. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Whoa, almost forgot about tonight….. Busy building my WP site so don’t know how much I’ll be involved.. What’s the topic? #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @FromTheWoodshop #woodchat I don’t know what the topic is. How about $31 / bd ft lumber? http://t.co/5reEq0gG

@uppercutwood: Hey woodchat! Tonight we’ll be hearing the wrap-up of @WoodExpo2012 from #EliCleveland! #woodchat

@sharpendwood: RT @uppercutwood: Hey woodchat! Tonight we’ll be hearing the wrap-up of @WoodExpo2012 from #EliCleveland! #woodchat

@EliCleveland: Hello! Thanks for inviting me back. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: P.S. O, Brother is one of my favorite movies. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @DavidJUlschmid WAY too high for domestic lumber. I don’t pay that much for Teak and that’s one of the more expensive woods… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland Hey we heard it was a great show and that NBSS did well #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: #woodchat. Solid Oak and Rubber Tubes. Interesting Book Shelf design. http://t.co/EUE6jfS8

@ramblinrdesigns: @DavidJUlschmid Plus it’s actually $34.31 per bf including the shipping #woodchat

@EliCleveland: The show went really well. @NBSSboston students/alum took all of the prizes. #woodchat

@Buceywoodworks: Good Evening #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @DavidJUlschmid It’s a nice piece, but not that nice! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland how was the customer flow through the show? #woodchat

@Furnitology: Hello everybody! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: good evening all #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: Evening all! Newby here! #woodchat

@EliCleveland: We had a steady crowd. Saturday was the busiest day by far. It always is. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Furnitology Neil! Good to see you buddy I just saw @celamens Monday night. #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Hello everyone! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hello @CoolToolShed Welcome to #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Hi folks! #woodchat

@Buceywoodworks: Hey Neil how are you #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @CoolToolShed Welcome. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: We had two sales, and I’ve heard reports of a number of jobs. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I had a great time there, big thanks to @furnitology @elicleveland @splinteredboard @Justindipalma and @swedishiron well done guys #woodchat

@swedishiron: Hello Neil, Eli and Everyone.. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So tonight I want to focus on learning what we can from @WoodExpo2012: how to prepare for a show, what customers are looking for #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good evening woodworkers. It’s time for another #woodchat

@Morton: I’m following up with a potential from @WoodExpoUS tonight. We’ll see – dunno anything until I broach cost. #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: Hola Amigos! First time here on #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @DavidJUlschmid @fromthewoodshop personally, I don’t like splayed woods. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @MansFineFurn You’re welcome. Thanks for coming out and for that great write-up. #woodchat

@Morton: @EliCleveland Saturday was busiest number of people – but I had almost as many potential conversations on Sunday #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @EliCleveland glad you liked it #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @DavidJUlschmid @fromthewoodshop personally, I don’t like splayed woods. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @MansFineFurn You’re welcome. Thanks for coming out and for that great write-up. #woodchat

@Morton: @EliCleveland Saturday was busiest number of people – but I had almost as many potential conversations on Sunday #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @EliCleveland glad you liked it #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @GregoryJPaolini Welcome. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @GregoryJPaolini what luck. I’m here for the 2nd time. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: One of the major things that I noticed, and a focus for next year, is preparing makers for the show. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @uppercutwood Are you including craft/art shows or more wood vendor shows? #woodchat

@EliCleveland: There’s a lot of talk about educating consumers, but it goes both ways. @theboisshop is very astute on this point. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Hello y’all..sorry I’m late #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @MKatFWW I don’t buy it for a second. You live on twitter!!! #woodchat

@garagewoodworks: Just stumbled in. 1st timer too. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @davidjulschmid @fromthewoodshop Splayed? Curse autocorrect! #woodchat

@Morton: @EliCleveland You saying I wasn’t prepared?! πŸ™‚ The big thing @theboisshop and I spoke about was maker’s learning from the crowd #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland I bet, I’m sure woodworkers need to learn how to talk to “people” #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @GregoryJPaolini no. I’ve got a Matt bot doing all my tweets. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @garagewoodworks welcome! #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Morton I believe that was a “silent rant”, was it not? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @EliCleveland I need to start writing my blog more client based. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @garagewoodworks Welcome. Glad you could join us. #woodchat

@Morton: @theboisshop It’s getting louder now. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @MKatFWW Granted that’s a pretty wild looking piece, but still. a lot of $$ IMO.. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: Whew got into the groove with the last coat of finish and can now get my chat on #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @Morton Haha, you did alright. But as a whole there’s still a disconnect. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @garagewoodworks welcome Brian. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop how about sharing the rant here? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I haven’t attended a “wood” show yet. Too far away and too costly. I’m hoping to make it to the one in Louisville. #woodchat

@kingfinny: Representing Mid-Atlantic MWA @RenaissanceWW @TheRealNeal #woodchat http://t.co/7qd2YjkU

@JohnVerreault: @GregoryJPaolini #woodchat Just got my Paolini Rulers from Woodpecker!! Woohoo! & my Bessey Xmas clamps arrived…now for the lottery. ;^)

@MansFineFurn: Not sure I captured @elicleveland or @theboisshop ‘s points here: http://t.co/9vOzYyg7 read more about it if you haven’t already #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @EliCleveland Two things I noted were 1) more real estate, and 2) better location from 2011. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FromTheWoodshop What theme are you using? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I suspect the real cost would be in all the stuff I’d want to buy. #woodchat

@Buceywoodworks: @Morton @EliCleveland @theboisshop Do you feel that maybe the demonstrations from the woodworkers effects the consumers #woodchat

@garagewoodworks: @BillGriggs Thank you. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @JimAAshley Yeah, we made some major upgrades for this year. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: FYI if you’re on the west coast, and looking for shows, this magazine has a list in the back http://t.co/yWVS7wXW #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @EliCleveland My wife thinks I need to tailor my entire online persona to be a designer/builder #woodchat

@theboisshop: @uppercutwood Matt, I’m planning a blog post on it – but in short woodworkers need to stop blaming “the wrong buyers” #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @BillGriggs trying out a Wootheme.. Swatch.. Just learning WP and it’s kicking my a$$. But it was free… #woodchat

@BillGriggs: My son and I made some turned wooden pens this week. Lots of fun and he learns fast. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland what were the upgrades? #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @MKatFWW I need a Matt Bot.!!! Don’t let any of my editors know I’m here, rather than working on writing articles and books!!! #woodchat

@sharpendwood: RT @uppercutwood: FYI if you’re on the west coast, and looking for shows,this magazine has a list in the back http://t.co/JoCdYjcF #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @Buceywoodworks I think the demos give people some insight into the piece and spark conversation. Make things more casual. #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @kingfinny @Renaissanceww Hey neighbor! #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @GregoryJPaolini too late. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop I think it’s like everything. You dress, etc for the position you want. Not the one you’re in. #woodchat

@Morton: @Buceywoodworks @elicleveland @theboisshop I think the demo’s only effect consumers in a good way-it’s really hand-crafted. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @theboisshop I agree completely. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: What’s the draw for a left coaster to make the trip for next years show? What’s different from any of the other shows out there? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Best thing I learned at WoodExpo: Learning to Pass on a job when its not worth it. Practiced it today! #woodchat

@swedishiron: I agree as well @theboisshop , quote “work has to sell itself, but to do so prospective clients have to be able to encounter it” #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Almost everything, space, location, schedule, presentation, etc. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Morton so they love to see how the work is done? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn tell me more #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn Do you use goal seek in Excel? It’s very handy #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland sounds like you guys put in a lot of work #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @MansFineFurn That is sometimes VERY hard to do…. Especially when you’re hungry :-O #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @FromTheWoodshop Just learning WP and it’s kicking my a$$ I’m pretty familiar with WP, drop me at Ben’s Workshop, maybe I can help #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Hello #woodchat I for one had a great time at WoodExpo2012 anyone who can should aim for 2013.

@DavidJUlschmid: RT @Tumblewood: @theboisshop I think it’s like everything. You dress, etc for the position you want. Not the one you’re in. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @WatkinsWoodWork We let the makers and buyers interact in a unique way. There’s an informality(?) that encourages conversation. #woodchat

@Morton: @uppercutwood The organizers put in a TON of work to make this happen. They did an amazing job; getting better each year! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke I’m going to try. Logistics..but, I think it seems a valuable show. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland informality = casual I assume? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Yes, but you can’t do work for less than your time is worth (better to spend time designing for next woodexpo/growing business) #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn It’s aquick way to see if a job is worth your time. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @benjamenjohnson wow, that would be awesome. not knowing any code trying to figure out what the templates allow/don’t allow is .. #woodchat

@garagewoodworks: I’ll be back in a sec. Someone write everything down so I don’t miss it.. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Morton were woodworkers working during the show? benches, planes, chisels, etc? #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @EliCleveland But doesn’t that still come down to the maker getting out of that comfort zone and engaging the crowd? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @garagewoodworks yes, I capture transcripts at http://t.co/XbQs2mvQ #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @Tumblewood I’d love to see you at #woodexpo, Vic. As #WIA fragmentation will likely keep us apart in October. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @benjamenjohnson looks like we are kinda close (@4 hours away). how much snow you get today? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @Furnitology Did you say there is no vendor fee? How does the show make its’ money? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology Hey Neil!! Welcome!! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @WatkinsWoodWork Beyond your comfort zone is where the money is stored. #woodchat

@theboisshop: @WatkinsWoodWork We spend so much time in the shop, any time engaging a crowd should be welcome! #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @garagewoodworks don’t fear. #woodchat transcripts get posted.

@DavidJUlschmid: #woodchat Does anyone put a “Time Budget” on a piece. To push yourself to get it done in a reasonable amount of time. Focus on DONE!?!??!

@uppercutwood: @WatkinsWoodWork that’s true for any salesman, isn’t it? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @FromTheWoodshop def. not easy, for sure. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @theboisshop: @WatkinsWoodWork We spend so much time in the shop, any time engaging a crowd should be welcome! #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @WatkinsWoodWork Absolutely. The dynamic makes it easier. It’s not so obvious that this is about sales, so buyers are disarmed. #woodchat

@Morton: @uppercutwood There are benches ready to use by the makers. Good way to engage the crowd, but usually the more woodworker-type #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop i got a job in computers to avoid people. oops my org size is about 80 people. #woodchat

@sharpendwood: I wonder if attendees are surprised by 1) # of custom makers and 2) diversity/quality of work #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I assume the “customers” are all woodworkers themselves, or wanna bees #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @Tumblewood @MansFineFurn I really like Excel and do some VBA coding, but I’ve never used Goal Seek. Going to look into it Thanks, #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @EliCleveland Makes sense #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @FromTheWoodshop Maybe 6 inches, but it was wet and heavy. Clogged my snow blower every 20 feet or so, ended up shoveling a lot. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @ramblinrdesigns We think the free space is an important piece. We strip away all of the barriers except desire to be there. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns nope, they are at the home show – they are just consumers, that’s what makes it special! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ramblinrdesigns No, they are a mix. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WatkinsWoodWork thats part of it, but also designing for the type of folks likely to attnd. & give them a way into fine furn. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @ramblinrdesigns It’s held in a home show, so about 20,000 home-owners are coming through. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @sharpendwood I suspect so, as they are mostly standard home show attendees. #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @benjamenjohnson looked at your site.. your MILES ahead of me.. Thank’s for the offer!!!! Possibly tomorrow if that’s OK.. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: For woodworkers that attended woodexpo, what are the tips you’d give for preparing for a consumer focused show? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WatkinsWoodWork thats part of it, but also designing for the type of folks likely to attnd. & give them a way into fine furn. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @ramblinrdesigns It’s held in a home show, so about 20,000 home-owners are coming through. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: For woodworkers that attended woodexpo, what are the tips you’d give for preparing for a consumer focused show? #woodchat

@Furnitology: @ramblinrdesigns show owners are wking with us-we bring in traffic and this year WoodExpo was a destination within NE home Show #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @benjamenjohnson alomst 2 feet here along the lake.. wet and heavy. still coming down. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: 20,000! RT @EliCleveland: @ramblinrdesigns Its held in a home show, so about 20,000 home-owners are coming through. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: So it’s more consumer oriented than trade? #woodchat

@woodbard: Just checking in, making sure everyone’s behaving. πŸ™‚ Nice to see this crowd! #woodchat
@sharpendwood: Really awesome that there’s no space fee #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I wrote about some of the markets/audiences/customers I observed at the show http://t.co/9vOzYyg7 maybe missed some. #woodchat

@garagewoodworks: Cool. Thanks. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Build for the client-base! Price-point is HUGE here. Don’t compromise quality, just design efficiently. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodbard great to see you Al! we’re chatting about @WoodExpo2012 #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: What kind of displays were put on by the different makers? My hurdle would be transporting goods and tools from the WC #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @DavidJUlschmid good point. IMO, one of the most important parts of a successful woodwork business is to focus on business first. #woodchat

@sharpendwood: Hopefully shows like this cause people to look more at the small boutique shop vs big box #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard Evening Al #woodchat

@woodbard: @uppercutwood Sorry I missed all the happenings. Congrats to Neil, Eli, and the entire crowd! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: MT @MansFineFurn: I wrote about some of the audiences/customers I observed at the show http://t.co/m9VavDfk maybe missed some. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @ramblinrdesigns Right. The makers aren’t divided, so they can represent the craft first, rather than competing factions. #woodchat

@Furnitology: @ramblinrdesigns not necessarily….sales to occur and after show contacts are made by those participating #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: This is different from WWIA. Where is this years expo located? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland what about multiple-production machines #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @FromTheWoodshop Sure, tomorrow’s good. Wow 2 feet. If it’s heavy at least there’s no drifting. #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Hi, Vic. Hope all’s well. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Fixed RT @uppercutwood: @EliCleveland what about making multiples of a project #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @ramblinrdesigns For now, the show stays in Boston. We’re not travelling yet. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn What is the price point for this consumer base? #woodchat

@swedishiron: @MansFineFurn your posts list of audiences was pretty accurate. Could break down WW’ers into smaller buckets easily I guess #woodchat

@Furnitology: @WatkinsWoodWork transportin is part of furniture design…..maybe your approach wins the most Creative Award #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology I might just drive #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Another great way to bring down prices. Jigs, fixtures, etc. save time if used appropriately. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @elicleveland @swedishiron @furnitology so when will the official WoodExpo 2012 webpage go up? #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: @benjamenjohnson I have a full sized 4×4 with knobby snow tires and still couldn’t do much… a LOT of weight on the roof! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood you’re nuts that’s a long drive! #woodchat

@Furnitology: @ramblinrdesigns Much much different…its about giving an individuals design a chance to get exposed to the buying public #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @Tumblewood My guess is around $1,500. Enough to respect but not be afraid of. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood My upcoming designs, outside of lamps..are too big to ship #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland what woods, styles, pieces, finishes are people most interested in? #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @MansFineFurn We’re losing sleep over it. We’ll spread the word as soon as it goes live. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood Tough one, I’d guess $1000-$1400 as entry point, always nice to have high-end eye candy to lure em in though. Homeshow #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @EliCleveland OK..so, I want to stick with things like lamps. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @EliCleveland Smaller pieces / builds #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood Vic loves lamp. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood No, I’d say bring lamps, but bring the high-end too. Show your range #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Our two sales this year were a contemporary and a traditional, but in the past contemporary has been more popular. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @EliCleveland Don’t lose sleep over it. just askin’! #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @Tumblewood @EliCleveland Vic, what are you thinking about building to offer for sale? #woodchat

@swedishiron: @Tumblewood accessories and lamps so far have been a hit with clients, they do stand out nicely with all the furniture pieces #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn are the smaller/less expensive pieces gateway drugs to larger sales? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood I love design…don’t care what form #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn are the smaller/less expensive pieces gateway drugs to larger sales? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Do you think one or two actual pieces plus photo display sells best? I would think demo has strong appeal to attract audience. #woodchat

@Furnitology: @Tumblewood Vic lots of small pieces can ship and assemble into large high end pieces, that’s custom work! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Precisely my words! RT @uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn are the smaller/less expensive pieces gateway drugs to larger sales? #woodchat

@kingfinny: @MansFineFurn @Tumblewood marketing theory says bring high- and mid-price, so the mid- looks more affordable by comparison #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DavidJUlschmid I have some lamps coming up then a hall table/bookcase #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: Hi everyone, sorry I’m late. Many thanks to Modern Woodworkers Assoc for showing at the WoodExpo #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @kingfinny: marketing theory says bring high- and mid-price, so the mid- looks more affordable by comparison #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @MansFineFurn Absolutely! I just talked to Steve Skillins and his sale landed him another job. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @Tumblewood What are you using for shades on your lamps? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood I’m making a lamp for work, the lights here turn off automatically. I hate it. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @Tumblewood we’re just going to have to caravan from the WC Vic. Toss the pieces in a Uhaul and make the cross country slog #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @EliCleveland That’s awesome! I’m really happy for him. #woodchat

@swedishiron: Big hint is to create an environment for your pieces where clients don’t have to use their imagination #ThinkSuite #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Bit of a drive-by woodchat for me tonight. Downstairs in my shop trying to arrange things in a more efficient manner. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @EliCleveland How big is the turnout for this show? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @swedishiron Kevin Mack’s setup was great: Like a Living room (he says it was your idea…)! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @DavidJUlschmid Cool idea, how thin? End grain or face grain. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @SplinteredBoard thanks for having us, Rick. The Modern Woodworkers Association had a blast at #woodexpo #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DavidJUlschmid These are ceiling fixtures-Shoji paper #woodchat

@swedishiron: Just exchanged messages w/ Steve Skillins tonight as well. A great craftsman. So thrilled by his sale and positive experience #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @ramblinrdesigns The home show gets 20,000+ visitors a year. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: #woodchat What materials, besides wood, do you use in your projects to make you stand out from the crowd? #woodexpo

@uppercutwood: @SplinteredBoard hey Rick! glad you guys could make it sounds like the show was Awesome. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn i’d like to know more about show prep and setup #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Tumblewood Gonna cull some straight grain Fir from these old timbers #woodchat

@swedishiron: @MansFineFurn yeah, Kevin Mack’s layout was way to easy, great design, + 5 pieces that all work together. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: An advantage of Neil’s flat-pack ideas is, if you travelled to the show, you don’t lose business by not being local. Just ship. #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @uppercutwood It’s exhausting, but we always have fun. #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @SMeekWoodworks Jeez Scott, you’ve only got about 300 plane orders to fill !!! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DavidJUlschmid I’m developing a relationship with a local upholsterer #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood yeah, me too: um…. @elicleveland @swedishiron @splinteredboard ? #woodchat

@Furnitology: @DavidJUlschmid use of materials is an element that has been under utilized to date at #WoodExpo #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @GregoryJPaolini @SMeekWoodworks Damn fine planes!! #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @benjamenjohnson Face grain. I shoot for 0.040 – 0.050″ thick. #woodchat. I’ve sold a few on Etsy http://t.co/8wawmfNg

@swedishiron: Hello @SplinteredBoard glad you could make it. #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @uppercutwood It might take a few weeks to tell you all that goes into show prep. We literally take an entire year to get ready #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Furnitology We had a woodchat about incorporating other materials, what are your suggestions/ideas #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @MansFineFurn @uppercutwood Can you be more specific? #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @Tumblewood Awesome #woodchat I’ve thought of branching out a working with other local craftspeople!

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology Derek is blogging about marbling paper. I’m looking forward to that! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @SplinteredBoard I don’t mean for the whole show, but what does a woodworker need to do to be ready for a show #woodchat

@EliCleveland: I already feel behind on planning 2013. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland if I am a woodworker getting ready for a show, what should I do? what should I bring? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DavidJUlschmid I don’t plan on working “with”. I plan on hiring to do it to my spec #woodchat

@swedishiron: One reason for success behind prep/setup thru-out the year is working with a group of folks you respect/trust. Lots of Skype time #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @GregoryJPaolini LOL, something like that. #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @GregoryJPaolini LOL, something like that. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Consider your image. Business card, portfolio, clothing, you are a brand and it should all jive. #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @Tumblewood Thanks Vic!

@ #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @uppercutwood Ah, ok. @elicleveland would be better suited to answer then #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @Tumblewood @Furnitology #woodchat. Ever thought about trying your hand at stained glass?

@SplinteredBoard: @EliCleveland Well, we have a lot on our plate for next year. We just need to organize better this year #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Think about who you are marketing to and how. You need to have a plan. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DavidJUlschmid Now, I might work “with” my sister in law on a stained glass project. She’s extremely talented #woodchat

@FromTheWoodshop: Gotta go guys. Hate to do it, but I need to work on my site… G’Night All!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: the most clever use of non-wood material this year (that I recall) glass coasters used in Kevin Mack’s japanese(?) inspired piece #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @uppercutwood Ever talk to authors going on tours? they always get into great physical shape first. Wouldn’t hurt here too #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Think about who you are marketing to and how. You need to have a plan. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology a very wise man once told me to build to my tooling! #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @EliCleveland Branding is very important. I’m realizing how much I’m lacking in that department lately. #woodchat

@Furnitology: @uppercutwood materials break you away from just “woodworking”….now you enter furniture design-for instance nobody uses lacquer? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FromTheWoodshop thanks for stopping by, don’t forget the transcripts are on http://t.co/XbQs2mvQ #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @SMeekWoodworks Um, I just got new business cards. Yay. #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @EliCleveland Flat packing is an oldie, but a goodie – check out “come-pact” furniture circa 1900 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Furnitology I definitely use lacquer. #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @Furnitology Right, we discussed, at length, the difference between being a woodworker, and being a furniture maker #woodchat

@swedishiron: Another point to keep in mind is your work. Take a good look at your portfolio, don’t bring your weakest piece to the show. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @BillGriggs I have friend who builds high end mansions for people just below Gates’ income range. That’s my main target #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @GregoryJPaolini http://t.co/j1bLYcam come-packt #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @GregoryJPaolini These days people dissociate flat-pack and quality. Remind consumers what custom really is. #woodchat

@Furnitology: @DavidJUlschmid now we’re talking..Niels Cosman’s best piece was in his portfolio-stain glass design on sliding cabinet doors #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @SplinteredBoard that sounds like a great topic for the future, are you guys in? @Furnitology, @EliCleveland #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @Tumblewood @smeekwoodworks the best performing plane I’ve ever used! Just got on Scott’s waiting list with a 55′ QSWO smoother #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @Tumblewood That’s a good target to hit. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @Furnitology I couldn’t believe he didn’t have any glasswork. He’s quite skilled. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology Sometimes our “tooling” is our associations with other artisans #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @Furnitology #woodchat I get so excited looking at the Greene and Greene stained glass pieces. I enjoy the soldering

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood I am. I have lots of thoughts on that one. It’s another blog that I’m not writing. #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @GregoryJPaolini That’s one hell of a long plane! how do you lift that thing??? #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: RT @Tumblewood: @Furnitology Sometimes our “tooling” is our associations with other artisans #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland we can write it together, maybe on our TBD skype date. Just been so busy releasing Windows 8 Consumer Preview #woodchat

@Furnitology: @uppercutwood 1 of our strengths as an organizing group is that we are willing to provide on going help we want the next big thing #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @SplinteredBoard @GregoryJPaolini It has wings. Lifts itself. #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @SMeekWoodworks @elicleveland Brand is very important, but takes either time, or insane amounts of marketing #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood I’ll be incorporating stainless steel screen as door panels on mud room lockers this spring #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @swedishiron Indeed, I purposely put them under the same header to simplify. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: It’s great to have the power of @WoodExpo2012 in #woodchat #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood Yes, panels are easier. I’m gonna have to find a local welder #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Haha, sounds good. (and it’s @woodexpous ;P ) #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: MT: @uppercutwood: Its great to have the power of @WoodExpoUS in #woodchat #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @Tumblewood You should learn to do your own welding. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @EliCleveland oops #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood learn to weld or solder. it’s apparently not that hard. #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: @SplinteredBoard Couldn’t find the little degree symbol on the iPhone. Had to settle for the ‘ symbol instead #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @BillGriggs I don’t want to get a whole other set of tools and stainless is an art unto itself #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @GregoryJPaolini I was just yankin’ yer chain. lol. #woodchat

@Furnitology: @uppercutwood not the way lacquer can be used-nobody does it today!Talk about adding the color element to your pieces- think faux #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @Tumblewood You can learn a bunch at http://t.co/0PdkMQEY #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood Agreed!! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Furnitology #woodchat you’re talking about tinted lacquer like @celamens ?

@EliCleveland: @uppercutwood Before we go, I want to thank @splinteredboard @furnitology @swedishiron @justindipalma and Bruce for all the work. #woodchat

@garagewoodworks: @Tumblewood I tried a project that incorporated stained glass and I couldn’t get it to cut down a score line. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @swedishiron I take it back, just re-reading my post, I did distinguish woodworker from furnituremaker. #subconscious #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @Tumblewood I can’t belive it. A woodworker who doesn’t want more tool???? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @garagewoodworks That’s why I’d work with my sister in law #woodchat

@swedishiron: Thanks @EliCleveland .. or Eli Cleve πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: @EliCleveland Dude, you did all the heavy lifting. I’m just there to hold the tail #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Tools #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @BillGriggs I just spent 6 years getting my shop to this point in order to start designing and making my pieces. FOCUS!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Before everyone leaves, allow me to summarize http://t.co/9vOzYyg7 : If you don’t try to get to WoodExpo ’13, you’re nuts. #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Anyone hanging out on Google+ after #woodchat

@Furnitology: @uppercutwood RE lacquer…no it’s more about creating your finishes using lacquer #woodchat

@GregoryJPaolini: So, what does this flashing battery icon mean??? Goodnight #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @BillGriggs It’s like Tommy sending his stuff out to a skilled finisher..it makes sense #woodchat

@garagewoodworks: @SMeekWoodworks Google+? I’m just starting to figure out twitter. Ugg #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood No, Eli just comes to the shop.. πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @Tumblewood There’s a perception that makers have to go start to finish these days. But that’s a whole different topic. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @garagewoodworks G+ rocks! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @Tumblewood I understand. Focus on what you are best at. Build relationships to help with other tasks. #woodchat

@Furnitology: EliCleveland @SplinteredBoard Haha. @justindipalma is the man. I’m just one in six @swedishiron-Thank you guys for covering for me #woodchat

@kingfinny: thanks for the great @WoodExpoUS info #woodchat! Goodnight!

@SMeekWoodworks: @GregoryJPaolini See ya tomorrow. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: @MansFineFurn I’m a wizard with that spray shellac. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @EliCleveland I say, focus…and collaborate with others skilled artisans #woodchat

@garagewoodworks: @Tumblewood I have an account but I haven’t figured it out yet. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @BillGriggs exactly #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: Great chat tonight. Lots to think about in the coming weeks/months #woodchat

@swedishiron: @Furnitology anytime brother! anytime.. We’ll have to make plans to hang out this summer while out in Maine #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology A big thank you for all your advice over the last few years. I’ve tweaked it, but its looks like it is paying off #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @Tumblewood: @BillGriggs exactly #woodchat

@Furnitology: RT @EliCleveland @Tumblewood There’s a perception that makers have to go start to finish these days-that’s a whole different topic #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @Tumblewood: @EliCleveland I say, focus…and collaborate with others skilled artisans #woodchat

@SplinteredBoard: See ya guys. Thanks for the quick chat! #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Great #woodchat tonight. Was great to get to go to @WoodExpoUS, and wish I could’ve hung out longer.

@EliCleveland: @JimAAshley I’m glad you could make it. Hopefully I’ll see you soon at an #modernwoodworkers event. #woodchat

@Furnitology: RT @Tumblewood Sometimes our “tooling” is our associations with other artisans…..——super break out thought!!! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Thanks everyone for contributing, I’ll post transcripts soon #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Oh yeah, I forgot to welcome @elicleveland as one of the newest members of #modernwoodworkers Boston crew! Glad to have you! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology Just restating your earlier advice from a long while back #woodchat

@Furnitology: Thank you all….goodnight. #woodchat

@EliCleveland: Thanks again. Great #woodchat

@swedishiron: Have a great night everyone! We appreciate your support around @WoodExpoUS and look forward to 2013 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Furnitology thank you Neil! #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @EliCleveland Thanks Eli! Glad we had a chance to chat. Hope as well to see you soon. #woodchat

@JC_McGrath: Missed #woodchat tonight, I will have to catch the transcripts. Hope everyone is well

@Tumblewood: @JC_McGrath It should be a great read, Jon! Excellent input tonight! #woodchat
