@FlairWoodworks: Here’s a picture of @uppercutwood’s failed glue joints. #woodchat http://t.co/iJp3Guep

@theboisshop: @uppercutwood has short stubby tenons ūüėČ #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Not a complete moron, Matt! :oD #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Ouch. Gonna take that, Matt? RT @theboisshop: @uppercutwood has short stubby tenons ūüėČ #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop hehe…what does that signify again? #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @FlairWoodworks @uppercutwood did they joint shrink after glue up? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop Have you tried out the Old Brown Hide Glue? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Three @GorillaGlue prize packs up for grabs tonight on #woodchat!

@Tumblewood: @DozersWorkshop Turtle effect? #woodchat

@theboisshop: Oh yeah, @uppercutwood probably had shrinkage. Tough problem for a guy. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Thanks to @GorillaGlue for the #woodchat stuff!

@DustyDeveloper: #woodchat what type of wood is that? Is it oily? Looks like walnut but I’m not sure.

@DozersWorkshop: Has @GorillaGlue considered Post-it style notes? @allenworb #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Link to the prize info: http://t.co/z0o0DppE #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop my shop was cold #woodchat

@techsaavy: I worked with liquid hide glue for the first time this week. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop “But, Jerry, there was shrinkage!!” #woodchat

@woodshaver101: gorrila glue ,I had bad luck with it.maybe an old bottle, wasn’t happy #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @techsaavy I’ve been wanting to for the rigid glue line #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodshaver101 The polyurethane glue? Did you introuduce moisture (water)? #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @Tumblewood hadn’t heard that term, Vic. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DustyDeveloper yes that was walnut #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @WoodworkGuy: Thanks to @GorillaGlue for the #woodchat stuff!¬Ě Ditto!

@Tumblewood: No #woodchat

@theboisshop: Only glue failures I’ve had were in stacked laminations #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @uppercutwood @theboisshop isn’t that everyones excuse for shrinkage? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DozersWorkshop it may have shrunk after glue up #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks yes I think it was a old bottle #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop what glue type? or was it your prep fault? #woodchat

@superdav721: Yes hide fails with time. But you can glue it again without total removal. You cant do that with modern glue. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @superdav721: Yes hide fails with time. But you can glue it again without total removal. You cant do that with modern glue. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @superdav721 I haven’t heard of hide glue failing w/time. Lots of old pieces in German castles doing fine. #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @woodshaver101 @flairwoodworks @GorillaGlue is affected by freeze thaw cycles #woodchat

@techsaavy: My first experience has been pleasant outside of the smell. #woodchat

@superdav721: @Tumblewood Mostly chairs in my case. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Has anyone used a solvent to remove Polyurethane glue? #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: Did you start the hangout yet? #Woodchat

@mlehikoinen: evening all! #woodchat – what about acetone?

@RareRepair: There is a solvent that will work #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Lots of marquetry done with hide glue sitting in old unconditioned castles doing fine, too. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: i used better bond cold press glue for veneer ,and tight bond 2 or 3 for most of my work #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @techsaavy yea? smell? stinky? #woodchat

@techsaavy: Went to my first local guild meeting this week to hear a speaker who is a violin restorer/expert. All joints are hide glue. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sleepydogwood yes we’re online now http://t.co/XbQnuMuW #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: Points for you Chris #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @mlehikoinen Evening Mike. How’d the hunting go? #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @mlehikoinen What’s up, my former co-olympian? #woodchat

@RareRepair: Lacquer thinner #woodchat

@techsaavy: @Tumblewood reminiscent of roadkill #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Boo-yah! RT @mlehikoinen: Points for you Chris #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @Tumblewood went well. Saw 3 sites today, 1 a couple of days ago and going to make an offer on one of them – 1200 sq ft #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex Hey Aaron!! How’ve ya been, brother!? #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @JinkerPlex doing well Aaron, you? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @techsaavy cool..I LOVE roadkill BBQ #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: I’ve just used the @GorillaGlue wood glue for the first time this wknd #woodchat http://t.co/fOv70lly

@woodshaver101: why does gorilla glue turn your fingers colors #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @mlehikoinen cool.the concrete block one I saw today? #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @Tumblewood Busy busy busy, Vic. I feel like a lapsed woodworker. I need to get back to it! #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: acetone kills most everything eventually … but wear your gloves! #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: Evening… #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @Tumblewood you bet ūüôā the others had front offices which I have no use for at this time #woodchat

@Tumblewood: The newest FWW video is cool. All done w/ hide glue and low VOC polymerized tung oil finish #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Wear gloves when working with chemicals, including Gorilla glue! #woodchat

@superdav721: Can you thin any of the modern glues to increase setup time? #woodchat

@RareRepair: Ive taken dried Gorrilla glue off antique finishes w/ L Thinner. #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @mlehikoinen Good, just plugging along. A new world with our daughter every day. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex I don’t get much time this time of year. BBQs, swimming parties, etc. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: What was Gorilla glue doing on an antique?!? RT @RareRepair: Ive taken dried Gorrilla glue off antique finishes w/ L Thinner. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex Congrats on the daughter! #woodchat

@techsaavy: What i was working on with the hide glue: http://t.co/iWUk6yo4 Made new shield backs for these antique chairs that were busted. #woodchat

@Woodtoast: @uppercutwood I used acetone. It softened the glue, but it was very sticky and I still had to scrape it forever. It was messy #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex Recent pics? I haven’t seen any since you got her. #woodchat

@theboisshop: I don’t even use glue, I just create joints so tight that they don’t need to be glued. #woodchat

@RareRepair: Someone glued the bronze work on #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @JinkerPlex right on. Daughters rock. ūüôā but then I’m biased #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood Thanks, she’s coming up on 9 months. Still can’t believe it some days. Happened just after #WIA11 last year. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I actually do that a lot. RT @theboisshop: I don’t even use glue, I just create joints so tight that they don’t need to be glued. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @theboisshop Not kidding, either. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop you wish #woodchat

@RareRepair: It was an ugly site #woodchat

@woodshaver101: does gorilla glue have creep?if used for veneer #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Odd choice. RT @RareRepair: Someone glued the bronze work on #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @theboisshop you just breathe on them and they swell shut? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @superdav721 Poly can’t be thinned, but the PVA glue can be thinned with a little bit of water #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @Tumblewood We keep the pics under wraps, unlike Marc & Nicole. But I’ll shoot some your way. #woodchat

@superdav721: Please a link would be nice. #woodchat

@RareRepair: Yes and heavily #woodchat

@superdav721: @uppercutwood thanks #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Evening everyone! #woodchat

@RareRepair: Better safe than sorry on wearing protection #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Yes. 2-3 freeze cycles with PU glue (verication pending). RT @superdav721: Please a link would be nice. #woodchat@DozersWorkshop #woodchat

@woodshaver101: yes #woodchat

@allenworb: http://t.co/vO4y6AGZ #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @RareRepair: Better safe than sorry on wearing protection #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: My son dressed up for #woodchat with @GorillaGlue http://t.co/axqdg31f

@uppercutwood: @allenworb is discussing the factors that affect glue creep #woodchat

@RareRepair: @DozersWorkshop ūüôā #woodchat

@theboisshop: Glue creep to me is like the Locke Ness monster. Hear a lot about it, but never seen it myself. #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @uppercutwood @allenworb none of that is coming thru to the chat, does he see our questions? #woodchat

@RareRepair: Excellent question Chris #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop either have I. never heard of it. then I did a search and found lots of “blah blah blah” buy more clamps. #woodchat

@superdav721: Define glue creep please #woodchat

@theboisshop: I would stick to plastic resin glues for something like a bent lam, if you’re worried about spring back. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop Seth Rolland uses Titebond II for all his lam bends. Says creep is negligible. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop It’s nasty crap though. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @chrishasflair is getting props to describe glue line creep #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood springback and creep are two different things #woodchat

@woodshaver101: Glue Creep is mostly seen in veneer work,were the glue bond moves causing the veneer to crack #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop He called Titebond and talked to their tech folk and was told TB II is the one for laminates #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop brand name or link for plastic resin glues? #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: Anyone who has done bent lamination has deal with creep #WoodChat

@sleepydogwood: Anyone who has done bent lamination has deal with creep #WoodChat

@Woodtoast: @uppercutwood The problem with that method is the potential for staining. It’s best to remove with a chisel and cabinet scraper. #woodchat

@Woodtoast: @uppercutwood The problem with that method is the potential for staining. It’s best to remove with a chisel and cabinet scraper. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: spring back and creep are essentially the same. T #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop Did your questions get answered? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: it’s the laminations being able to somewhat slide past each other. it the same on both #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @theboisshop: @Tumblewood springback and creep are two different things #woodchat

@RareRepair: Ive noticed some expansion with Gorilla Glue, not to throw to much terminology in there #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Hi everyone #Woodchat

@theboisshop: Exactly, creep is when the glue line raises proud of the joint – totally different than springback #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @Tumblewood: spring back and creep are essentially the same. T #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I think Chris is correct in that it has to do with fully curing before the clamps are off. #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @FlairWoodworks not about some product suggestions I had… #woodchat

@superdav721: So creep means the glue still moves for a long period of time. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop holy crud I got something right #woodchat

@RareRepair: @BillGriggs Hey Bill! #woodchat

@WoodWhisperer: RT @uppercutwood: Reminder that next week we start at 7pm P/10pm E so that @woodwhisperer can join us. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop The post-its… was there another too? #woodchat

@woodbard: #woodchat @FlairWoodworks Please read the Google+ stream.

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks true spring back can be controlled by the thickness of the lamination’s #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @superdav721 after you think it’s cured, it continues to cure and may get bigger in the joint, thickness or height #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodbard Thank you. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks true spring back can be controlled by the thickness of the lamination’s #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Chris is right that it has to do w/ the cure. PVA needs air..takes longer to fully cure. Keeping it in the clamps enough is key #woodchat

@superdav721: @uppercutwood So at normal temperature would 24 hours clamp time take care of creep? #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @FlairWoodworks also when they asked before I proposed cushioned tape for handles #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodbard For laminations, Unibond 800. anything similar from @GorillaGlue #woodchat

@RareRepair: @uppercutwood That’s better than I said it. Thank you #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop Good idea! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @RareRepair Hi Frits. #Woodchat

@Tumblewood: The problem w/ UniBond 800 is it’s not a good thing to be exposed to. Yes, it works very well, though. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: That why I switched to epoxy for laminating bent wood #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: I was also wondering today about @GorillaGlue construction adhesives #woodchat @allenworb @FlairWoodworks

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop Suggest that as an entry to win the Gorilla Glue prize pack at http://t.co/z0o0DppE #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: haven’t done much in the way of laminations except for adding 1/4″ A1 grade to baltic birch for cabinet end facings – not bent tho #woodchat

@theboisshop: I use BetterBond for bent laminations. Very rigid glue bond, and will prevent any spring back. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: used epoxy for that #woodchat

@uppercutwood: FYI Unibond 800 is a two-part, urea formaldehyde, liquid resin glue. http://t.co/uJr9OP18 #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Woohoo! Chatroom works on my Transformer Prime #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sleepydogwood what open time on your epoxy? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop is that still a urea formaldehyde? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @theboisshop better bond is also great for veneer work, #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood No. It’s a no mix cold press veneer adhesive. Cleans up with water. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: yeah, bulk for the cabinet shops #woodchat ūüėČ

@uppercutwood: Better Bond: http://t.co/uAjdrbcD #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop I’ll have to check out the specs on it. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: I like tightbond 3 #Woodchat

@RareRepair: Another good question #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood I buy it by the gallon. Comes in various colors too to match the species. Used it on my writing table drawer fronts. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs hi Bill! #woodchat

@Woodtoast: #woodchat I’ve done many bent laminates in a vacuum press using only Titebond glues with a great deal of success.

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop I just prefer near zero contaminates in my shop. Too many good products now that aren’t bad for you. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @Tumblewood: @theboisshop I just prefer near zero contaminates in my shop. Too many good products now that aren’t bad for you. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @Tumblewood Waterbased finishes have come a long way! #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Is there a trick to keeping CA glue from drying out? #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood Hey Matt #Woodchat

@Tumblewood: @FlairWoodworks I’m trying the low voc Waterlox next and then the Citrus Southerland Welles. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @SMeekWoodworks Keep the bottle clean. #woodchat

@Loogie: Is there supposed to be somewhere for me to tweet/comment in the chatroom? #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood BB is zero VOC, water clean-up. #woodchat

@Woodtoast: @Tumblewood @theboisshop I completely agree. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @Loogie Just use the #woodchat hashtag.

@RareRepair: They need to invent a new container. CA in a tube is a mess. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop I’m definitely looking at it for my next project. Lots of bending. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Loogie or http://t.co/85PWjxwA #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @RareRepair that’s the big reason I use two-part CA glues. they seem to last longer. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: I find EZ Bond better than Hotstuff – hotstuff had bonding issues with pen blanks and the brass tubes #woodchat

@penguintrax: @lyonsdigital did you know #woodchat is going on right now?

@FlairWoodworks: @mlehikoinen I find HotStuff to be too brittle for pen blanks. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I meant CA glue with accelerator http://t.co/yDxiGZne #woodchat

@allenworb: liquiglide: http://t.co/CuuOVCIK #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: Good night all, gotta run. Good stuff! #woodchat

@Loogie: I’m in the TweetChat & I tried to “Sign In With Twitter”, but it still says it “Sign In With Twitter”. Maybe that’s the problem. #woodchat

@superdav721: Could you slow the set time by either chilling or warming the glue? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex thanks for stopping by buddy #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @superdav721 For Cyanoacrylate glues? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex Night, Aaron #woodchat

@sawdustislife: Thought about joining the hangout but doing a web update for work. If I joined, you’d just see me typing on the other computer ūüôā #woodchat

@Tumblewood: LOVE THE GORILLA TAPE!! #woodchat

@superdav721: @FlairWoodworks pva #woodchat

@Tumblewood: As a cleaner, I can fully recommend Gorilla Tape. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: LOL #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @Tumblewood I do as well. Works much better than Duct. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @sawdustislife didn’t realize we could join the on air hangout #woodchat

@Loogie: Ok, finally got it working in Firefox, but not Chrome. #woodchat #woodchat

@RareRepair: Thank you for the invite gentlemen, good night. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: I use painters tape all the time too. The blue or yellow grades #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @Loogie Excellent! #woodchat #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @RareRepair Thanks for stopping by, Fritz! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Loogie You must be using Tweetchat inside of Uppercuts. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Loogie I couldn’t start the Google hangout in Google chrome. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @superdav721 For a slower cure time, it’s probably better to choose a product with a slower cure time than modifying another. #woodchat

@sawdustislife: @mlehikoinen I don’t know either. Just ASSUmed ūüôā #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Four minutes left in the hour of #woodchat. Any more questions?

@superdav721: Later gentlemen. I did enjoy. Thanks for answering all my questions. Great show! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @superdav721: Later gentlemen. I did enjoy. Thanks for answering all my questions. Great show! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Sprinkling baking soda on CA glue will speed up the bond. #Woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Enter to win a Gorilla Glue prize pack by end of Friday: http://t.co/z0o0DppE #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Remember to submit your prize submissions http://t.co/CFfqqTsL #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: Good discussion. Peace out! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Thanks #woodchat. Another great session!

@Tumblewood: Matt’s piece with his daughter Hayden was adorable and showed how to introduce even little kids to woodworking #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: is this the first annual GWW? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Everyone at #WIA seemed to be focusing on what was wrong with woodworking, but we thought why not punch it up? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Alright! I’ll be making a Br’all¬†– a simple shop project everyone should have. I’m aiming to have it up on my blog tonight. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Ian’s piece was pure genius! I laughed my ass off at lunch today! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench I had already left, right? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: We could post things that could attract new folks to the craft. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @BoatworksToday You betcha.. the first ever. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood No, you were super lit and on the other side of the table #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @TomsWorkbench¬†Save woodworking? Is it in danger? It seems like there’s been a Renaissance as of late #woodchat

@NewtonWoodwork: And I thought the GWW¬†message was directed¬†at me ūüėČ #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: So, over the past few months, I’ve put out an appeal to other bloggers to see if they would participate¬†#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench #superlit I love it #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Br’all? I’m intrigued #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @benjamenjohnson¬†Yes, indeed… the online woodworking movement is VERY MUCH alive and well… #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I think it’s more about trying to show others how much fun and rewarding woodworking is #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tumblewood¬†Link to Ian’s piece please #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good evening everyone. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That’s the idea! RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Brall? Im¬†intrigued #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: So, everyone was up for it, and I liked the model that @woodwhisperer used for woodworking safety week #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: @TomsWorkbench More vids like Matt;s it goes a long way. Those with kids should give it a try! (another year for me) though #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @TomsWorkbench¬†Does #getwoodworking¬†have a following? I’ve not heard of it. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @BillGriggs Evening Bill #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @WoodworkGuy¬†That’s the idea.. it’s not a stodgy craft done only by old farts in their basements… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench And we want it to thrive. Create beautiful pieces. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ramblinrdesigns¬†First time we’ve ever done this… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Ian’s blogpost¬†@woodcanuck¬†http://t.co/IOWTkDdO #woodchat

@asliceofwood: Hello everyone! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: No, old farts in their stand alone Pasco shops #woodchat

@kring_l: #getwoodworking is a great concept it got my son into my shop doing something for more then 5 minutes #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood Encourage others to find how much fun things could be. Build new stuff to provide more inspiration #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @WoodworkGuy Hi Jeff. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: RT @uppercutwood: Ians blogpost @woodcanuck http://t.co/XThweYwR My favorite post for #GWW #woodchat

@uppercutwood: My #getwoodworking¬†post was my most popular post by far, biggest daily traffic I’ve ever had. #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: Now @TomsWorkbench¬†thinks he runs the show… Talk about someone with a Napoleon complex… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench¬†it’s a move against a disposable society #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I might not be woodworking, but I had my daughter in my shop working on her science fair experiment this week #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: The #getwoodworking¬†posts have been awesome… I had no idea how funny everyone could be. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Indeed Vic! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tumblewood Thanks! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood¬†Oh yes… some really sweet stuff is being built… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: For me it’s also about creating memories with my daughter, and helping people getting past inertia and getting in the shop #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Some posts have been about tools, others about finishing, some about wood choices… it’s been a good variety of posts… #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: @theboisshop Рdo you have a crush on @uppercutwood? A man-crush perhaps? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood¬†Exactly… creating memories, projects, the works… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I liked @logancabinets’s¬†video and posts as well #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @TomsWorkbench¬†But NONE about the oh-so-useful Br’all! My own original design! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop were you hoping my web cam was on while I powdered my bum? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @TomsWorkbench almost all have been on a beginners level too, makes it easier to attract newbies #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ChrisHasFlair Sweet! We need more Br-all! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: To the point: G+, lumberjocks, et al are great, but the project might be intimidating for newbies. Is there a good forum? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair sounds klingon #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Man, I can’t stand the 5-second delay on Tweetchat. #woodchat #impatient

@uppercutwood: I would suggest to all bloggers to have a post tag “getwoodworking” or category. Any post during the year that works, tag it. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @asliceofwood¬†Exactly… not too newbie¬†and basic, but intriguing… #woodchat

@InGrainWoodwork: @uppercutwood Is there a way to watch your videos without adobe flash? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I would suggest to all bloggers to have a post tag “getwoodworking” or category. Any post during the year that works, tag it. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: (That was an RT from @uppercutwood) #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood¬†Now, here’s a great point… Hashtag chat¬†rules #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Hey #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @ChrisHasFlair Great idea #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Everyone know what a hashtag is? # #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @benjamenjohnson¬†I think Marc forum has kind and welcoming people. I don’t like some of the other ones. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: it would be cool if any new woodworker could search “woodworking blog getwoodworking” and find all related posts across blogs #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood Good idea, Matt! #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: @TomsWorkbench¬†still learning what all this is… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood¬†The Wood Talk Online forum is really friendly… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @HighRockWW¬†Hey Chris. How’s the wife’s ankle? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @TomsWorkbench¬†@tumblewood¬†it’s the best! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench¬†+1 I say use WTO¬†forums, I’m sure there is (or could soon be) a beginner’s forum #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @BoatworksToday Hey, we all learn something new every day! #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: I like marc’s site. recently got involved with another which IMO has a LOT of politics floating around.. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood¬†There is also the MWA¬†forum there as well… #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood But how do they figure out the getwoodworking part if they not part of the community #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: So, there are a bunch of articles waiting for tomorrow… and I’m looking forward to what else comes in this week. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: And, I’m thinking that we need to repeat #getwoodworking¬†week¬†next year… #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Absolutely.RT @TomsWorkbench: And, I’m thinking that we need to repeat #getwoodworking¬†week¬†next year… #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood I like that idea. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @TomsWorkbench yes indeed. Great response so far #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @benjamenjohnson¬†Ahh, Ben, that’s part of your homework for #getwoodworking¬†week… #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @TomsWorkbench Definitely #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: How about a “finish your woodworking projects week”? @TomsWorkbench¬†#getwoodworking¬†#woodchat

@theboisshop: I think every day should be #getwoodworking day #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Part of #getwoodworking¬†is to invite others to participate… Teach others about the craft, get friends involved in forums… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Marc and his family are really awesome people. I think his success is a direct result of that fact. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I like that idea… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson well, hopefully they found out about this because one of us told them what to look for and where to go #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop Yeah brother #occupywoodshop #woodchat

@Tumblewood: RT @theboisshop: I think every day should be #getwoodworking day
@TomsWorkbench: @theboisshop¬†Rob, I’m thinking it should be. Our blog posts should encourage others to try it out… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood¬†It hasn’t hurt his appeal… #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair¬†RT How about a “finish your woodworking projects week”? Ahh, yes, that’s a whole ‘nother problem #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench yes #getwoodworking is an annual event i like it. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair Not this week. Not enough time. But, I think next week #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: Maybe try and organize 1 day a month to get others involved? rather than once a year? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood Definitely. The number of posts on other blogs has been encouraging! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench Maybe have an aggregate that pulls GetWoodworking tagged post? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @BoatworksToday good idea! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @BoatworksToday¬†Why not? Let’s make it something we do on the first of the month… or something easy to remember… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood¬†If I could figure out how to do that… oh, I’d be a social media wiz! #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: Possibly have each “involved” blogger organize a differnet¬†theme/topic for each month? just thinking out loud… #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: I think I know what Tom will be doing on Sunday.. He’s going to drink a lot of banana daiquiris… #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I helpe a lot of newbies @Woodcraft. I can spread the hashtag info around if you think it would help generate followers. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench¬†Marc knows how. He’s doing it for the Guild builds. He links to mine posts about the Roubo¬†build #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I also think we need woodchat, #getwoodworking and #occupywoodshop combo tshirts #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Maybe a day of the week like follow friday or caturday. Woodworking wednesday #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @BoatworksToday¬†I like it… it’s just that so many people seem to wait on Marc to organize events… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns I think step 1 is tell those newbies about woodchat #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ramblinrdesigns¬†oops “help” #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Marc has thrown his support behind #getwoodworking.. he’s receptive to all decent ideas… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I’m pretty much solitary…so, I don’t have anyone to really inspire. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ramblinrdesigns Do it! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood¬†A great point, Matt. Get them involved… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood Bullshit, Vic. Your work is inspirational on your blog! #woodchat

@kring_l: how about first saturday of each month easier to get someone to stop by the shop if not at the day jobs #woodchat #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Isn’t your blog a means of communication? RT @Tumblewood: I’m pretty much solitary…so, I don’t have anyone to really inspire. #woodchat

@Black_SheepWW: How is everyone? #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: I am going to be getting much more involved with the woodworking aspect of organizing stuff #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Another idea would be some sort of chatroom, woodworkers could hang out and answer questions. A lot of software projects use one #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: but just getting a new woodworking site up and running. A lot’s going to changeover the next few months #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @Tumblewood¬†not good…still can’t walk on it. Hopefully soon though. Haven’t been around taking care of her and the girls #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @BoatworksToday¬†Why not? All it takes is an idea to get started… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Oh, yea. I have extended family. They like seeing what I’m doing. Mostly I blog to know where I’ve come from #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @ChrisHasFlair: (That was an RT from @uppercutwood) #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Anybody remember Jamon¬†S.’s design blog that was around a few years ago? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: The magazines have a lot of pull. Anyone have any connections to get the hashtag communities mentioned there? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @kring_l Saturday in the Shop! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood¬†There is also the MWA¬†forum there as well… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I offer up this chatroom for that purpose: http://t.co/pLdjyBxs #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood Yeah, I sometimes read my old posts and learn stuff! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @HighRockWW Sprains are a bitch #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson But remember, twitter with #woodchat is essentially a large chatroom #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ramblinrdesigns¬†I’m tied in with Wood Magazine, and they have been pumping¬†up #getwoodworking¬†#woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I’m not familiar #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: And then there is google+. I’ll drop a reference to my woodworking circle. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair http://t.co/pLdjyBxs #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: Starting next week my sign in name is going to be @fromthewoodshop (my new woodworking channel) #woodchat

@HighRockWW: √Ę‚ā¨Ňď@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson¬†But remember, twitter with #woodchat is essentially a large chatroom #woodchat√Ę‚ā¨¬Ě and very effective!

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Link no worky. #woodchat

@InGrainWoodwork: Anyone ever use http://t.co/NDIiankq? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood @Torch02 and @SMeekWoodworks will remember. It was a small group of woodworkers helping each other with design. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @MansFineFurn: RT @theboisshop: I think every day should be #getwoodworking day #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ramblinrdesigns¬†Look, we can certainly work to get folks involved… let’s get out there and inspire folks… #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: sorry for all the retweets, joined late and RT’d¬†all the good point I saw while reading through to catchup #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ramblinrdesigns¬†I’ve been waiting for some tech G+ is working on to become public. We could do cool things on G+. Shop tours,etc #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I don’t think we need to worry about the technical details, when our barrier is that we aren’t talking to enough humans ūüôā #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood This is what I see: http://t.co/58OVedx4 #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Where to from #getwoodworking week? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @InGrainWoodwork I use Lumberjocks for most of my community queries. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Invite people into your shop, tell them about the online resources you have. that will keep them busy for two years. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tumblewood It would be nice to get hangouts on air for woodchat #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair¬†oh maybe it’s private, please hold #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: I’ll get something up on the boatworkstoday¬†site, and when @fromthewoodshop¬†comes online it’ll be there too #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: I’m thinking we need to keep the momentum going… Find a scout troop and help them out… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: RT @uppercutwood: Invite people into your shop, tell them about the online resources you have. that will keep them busy. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench I keep one in my basement. oh..wait..you mean..yea.. nevermind #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @TomsWorkbench I agree. I had 12 college students help in the workshop last week. Teach woodworking when you can. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @HighRockWW¬†Go talk to a school about woodworking… whatever… #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: @Tumblewood¬†You are a sick man, Vic. That’s why I love you… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @lucaspeters @wood_jedi if I had known I would pitched in! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tumblewood Check out what Fraiser Cain does with it, they hook up telescopes (look for the best variants at familyfuntures.com) and have a sky watch party. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @lucaspeters Tell the folks at Wood how much we appreciate the #getwoodworking support they have thrown our way! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @TomsWorkbench: RT Invite people into your shop, tell them about the online resources you have. that will keep them busy. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @BillGriggs¬†Perfect, Bill. That’s the way! #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: Maybe something VERY simple for a day care? They’re always looking for new fun projects for the kids.. #woodchat

@Wood_Jedi: @lucaspeters Thank you! It was a joint effort and steve @MereMortalsWW is very deserving!!! #woodchat

@jmk89: Volunteer at a local kindergarten, church or other organization to donate a piece of woodworking that they need? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Honestly,my work is SO heavy with contract and lawyer folk,I am acutely aware of the risks of having ANYONE young in the shop #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: The Pinewood Derby is coming up for the Cub and Boy scouts… maybe volunteering to help would be fun… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ChrisHasFlair¬†My numbers are up… I’m finding new folks who haven’t been to my site.. and they are following links out… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I found a energy¬†twitter colleague follows my blog…weird..cool..weird #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood¬†Good point, Vic… But, there’s nothing wrong with going to a school to talk to the kids #woodchat

@lucaspeters: Hmm, my 5-yr-old just got his first toolbox full of tools for Christmas. I should post a pic of his kit sometime. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I’ve had a bunch of activity on my blog and 2 subcribers¬†#woodchat

@Furnitology: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Are they being read by our target audience? –thats¬†a really good question #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Woodworkers and machinist are crossovers. Especially with CNC Routers and laser cutters. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I know I’ve had more hits today than any day in the past. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench ditto me too. My wife posted a link on her blog. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench Yea, you made category for my referrals #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: @Tumblewood¬†wasn’t think having them in the shop, more getting involved with puzzles that are already done and need decorating? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Maybe you could do a demo at a local library… #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That’s amazing! RT @JimAAshley: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I know I’ve had more hits today than any day in the past. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: My 4 1/2 year old has her own, REAL hammer. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @JimAAshley Two thumbs up! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood¬†That’s great Matt! #woodchat

@InGrainWoodwork: @lucaspeters¬†I just finished building an all wooden hand plane for my oldest son. If I could figure out how to post a picture… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Yea.The problem is I don’t like most peoples¬†kids. It seems like WWers¬†themselves, the kids of WWers¬†are pleasant, fun and behaved #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @jmk89¬†A great point, Jeremy. My son built a rocking horse during Marc’s build.. he was proud as could be about the project #woodchat

@lucaspeters: The kids projects from Lowes are safe for little ones. You can choose skill level. And they’re good for short attention spans. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood¬†Vic – Last year, I spoke to nearly 300 kids in one day about woodworking.. only a handful had issues… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench¬†with Handtools, but don’t want to house a traveling bench. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @Furnitology: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Are they being read by our target audience? –thats¬†a really good question #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @lucaspeters are those the red toolbox kits? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood Nah, Vic, check out the videos of my talks.. no workbench there.. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Actually, in the future I may want a traveling bench to have for showings..maybe. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @lucaspeters¬†I’ve seen them and the “red(something)” projects for older kids #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @MansFineFurn my shop class was all about power tools. How about showing handtool skills? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @MansFineFurn¬†We may have to do some analytics about this week.. not sure how we would track that… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench¬†I take you back to me not really wanting to talk to other people’s kids..;o) #woodchat

@jmk89: Donate ww books to local library or school library #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Highland Woodworking also has those Wood Man kits. Got one for my son for Christmas, and was good fun building it with him #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood Something to think about #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: What about the other end of the spectrum? Many of our Woodcraft customers are retired and looking for stuff to do. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @lucaspeters Yeah, I second those kits. Predrilled nail holes are great! Much less frustration for the little ones. #woodchat

@lucaspeters: @uppercutwood Some are. Some are branded Lowes. They also hold little workshops on the weekend where you can go in and build em #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I would like to find real woodworking curriculum for kids. Real teaching materials. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @jmk89¬†Now, that’s a great idea. How many of us have dozens of old magazines we won’t ever touch again. Why not donate¬†those? #woodchat

@jmk89: Our school PTA has a stall for Mothers day – make 50 little boxes for the kids to buy to give their Mom #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @TomsWorkbench¬†it’s probably doable with someone with knowledge of google analytics (you signed up?) New visitors is one category¬†#woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood¬†They are out there, Matt. Just search online… #woodchat

@Furnitology: @Tumblewood¬†Vic, @justindipalma¬†dis just that, a smaller traveling bench for his craft shows, I’ll tell him to take a picture #woodchat

@lucaspeters: @uppercutwood You might try to get your hands on the boy scout woodworking badge manual. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ramblinrdesigns Many woodworkers are Senior Citizens but there are also many young woodworkers #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @MansFineFurn¬†I’m signed up.. .I’ll have to parse out the details for this week.. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @lucaspeters¬†my 4yi¬†daughter has her Bob the Builder tool box in my shop and comes out to work with me! ūüôā #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @lucaspeters¬†that’s a great idea #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Furnitology¬†Neil, I’d love to see that design. #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: #woodchat Hello all! Missed the last few woodchats. Wanted to get a quick hello in. Wednesday nights continue to be tough for me to make.

@Furnitology: Maybe I missed it but I saw very little geared towards kids…guide me where to look #woodchat

@Furnitology: @TomsWorkbench¬†I’ll make sure in the next 2 weeks he gets a photo out, proportions are different #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Furnitology¬†i¬†don’t think it was geared¬†to kids as viewers, but geared towards parents to get their kids off the couch #woodchat

@3DWoodworking: RT @TomsWorkbench: RT @jmk89: @TomsWorkbench @uppercutwood Try here: http://t.co/h7b1UNmx Рgreat link! #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @BoatworksToday start them out with a toy tool box, they can relate to that and have fun. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology¬†Can you or can you get someone to take extensive shots at #WoodExpo¬†? I’d really love to see what is happening there #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn walk through home depot and put together a basic set of tools. show people how cheap/easy to get started. #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: @HighRockWW¬†good idea. maybe a little wood hammer next? why not a set of tools made of wood? (no sharp points ūüôā #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn even take them to the wood section, show them the radiata, maple, etc. show them what crap to avoid. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Furnitology¬†Good question…hmm #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Furnitology¬†Neil – word of mouth may help to attract some of the real newbies… and you and the folks at #woodexpo¬†can help! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn take them to the finishing aisle, and show them danish oil, wipe on poly, show them what to avoid #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @3DWoodworking That is an interesting book. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood¬†@Furnitology¬†I’ll be blogging it Vic, I’m sure @theboisshop¬†will too, and others #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: I think it would be cool as hell to have to wood tool box full of nice wood tools!! (made of wood!) #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: I was surprised¬†at how many finishing articles have been written… Great topic for #getwoodworking¬†week. #woodchat

@bmorewoodwork: Anyone have a woodshop co-op? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @TomsWorkbench Is anybody compiling a list of all the articles? #getwoodworking #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Furnitology¬†Part of the google analytics includes ref. sources, filtered correctly you can see “new visitors by referral source” #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @bmorewoodwork No, but there are a few in the area.. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood¬†That’s a great idea. Have a sheet of entry level¬†prices. Because, come guys…this cost even low balling¬†it #woodchat

@jmk89: @FlairWoodworks looks fine, unless SWMBO wants it for something else #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @HighRockWW¬†@BoatworksToday¬†or build them one yourself, I’m posting the one I made for my daughter tomorrow #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @ChrisHasFlair I am on my site.. Be sure to send me the links to all of your #getwoodworking week posts #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @jmk89 I only have to answer to myself. #woodchat

@Furnitology: @TomsWorkbench yeah finishing and even one on SEO,etc. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Maybe someone can see “How Cheap Can You Get Into Woodworking? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @BoatworksToday exactly! I start a few nails for my daughter and let her try and drive them in or let her paint a board #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood¬†that’s not a bad idea, if HD will let me film. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yeah, but let’s not start halucinating¬†now! RT @Tumblewood: Maybe someone can see “How Cheap Can You Get Into Woodworking? #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: @benjamenjohnson¬†tweet to let me know when it’s up! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood¬†An excellent challenge, Vic! ūüôā Wanna take it? #woodchat

@jmk89: What if you set up at the big box (just next to the local Rotary Club’s BBQ and did some joinery there? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench You got all I had for the week..sorry dude #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Furnitology¬†A great variety of articles for sure… #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @benjamenjohnson nice, I will have to check it out! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @jmk89 Maybe you could join two regular hot dogs into a foot-long? #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: @Tumblewood¬†Shoot, Vic. You seemed to have so much momentum with that first article, I thought you’d have more! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn I bet they will, or at least take pictures. #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: there’s enough people here, that are passionate; I think a big idea could have some teeth! Glad I came across this! #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: RT @ChrisHasFlair: @jmk89¬†Maybe you could join two regular hot dogs into a foot-long? – intriguing… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Tell them what you’re doing, and I bet they’ll support it. If not, go to an Ace Hardware or Woodcraft. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @TomsWorkbench¬†Sorry..I’m focused on creating some pieces this year. I’m not signing up for any extra stuff. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: So what did I miss tonight? #Woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @IggyMonkey And use a plow plane to cut a groove for onions? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood¬†given that I’m there 12 times per week, I think they’ll accommodate #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair dovetail, half-lap, or finger joint? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @BoatworksToday¬†Big ideas often start small.. now, let’s see how far down the rabbit hole this leads us… #woodchat

@jmk89: @ChrisHasFlair Using mustard flavored hide glue! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: seven minutes to go, who wants to design the tshirt? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Geez, I’m making myself hungry! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn take your pile of receipts #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tumblewood You talking to me? I thought @iggymonkey had issues with you? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @IggyMonkey and then cut them apart on a Sawstop. Er, maybe not. The consequences are too pricey. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Dovetail. I don’t think the others would be strong enough.RT @benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair¬†dovetail, half-lap, or finger joint? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Ewwww! RT @jmk89: @ChrisHasFlair Using mustard flavored hide glue! #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: @ChrisHasFlair¬†You had me at onions… #woodchat

@jmk89: It is lunchtime where I am (Sydney Australia) ūüôā #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: @ramblinrdesigns Stupid hot dog sensing technology #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I love watching @ChrisHasFlair¬†do “impromptu” design. That was a blast and a good experience! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @jmk89¬†It’s bedtime here in Tampa… #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @jmk89¬†It’s tomorrow where you are! #woodchat

@Furnitology: Will there be a follow-up to get woodworking?? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Alright #woodchat I have to get back to the wifey! Good night all.

@kring_l: but the glue itself is so tasty #woodchat

@lucaspeters: @MansFineFurn Shameless plug, but it might be a good starting point. Wood’s “Basic-built” toolkit: http://t.co/3nc9nbRk #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Gotta bail, kids are giving my wife too much trouble. Thanks for #getwoodworking @TomsWorkbench #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: is it odd that I drink more beer during these chats than any other day of the week? ;> Ha Ha! #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: OK, folks. Look for a new post on my site tomorrow.. let’s finish the week on a strong note. #woodchat

@jmk89: @IggyMonkey What would happen if you used a banana instead of a hotdog on a SawStop? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Category: http://t.co/nKg0VfNx @Tumblewood: I love watching Chris do “impromptu” design. That was a blast and a good experience! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I have another hour in the shop…cya! Great hour! #woodchat

@IggyMonkey: @lucaspeters Plug away, Lucas! #woodchat

@BoatworksToday: @HighRockWW night! Wish her well! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Very good one tonight guys. Thx again @Tomsworkbench for taking the lead on this. You may have inspired the next Krenov this week! #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: So, in summation…Talk it up and spread the word, wherever your connections are and #getwoodworking¬†could go viral! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @lucaspeters¬†If I do that post, I’ll reference it, as long as you don’t mind if I disagree on a couple points! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @TomsWorkbench Hopefully he/she will remember YOU! #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @TomsWorkbench @benjamenjohnson Huh? I thought online woodworking was dead. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair got a link so I can stalk you #woodchat

@lucaspeters: @MansFineFurn Those are the tools we limit ourselves to for the basic-built projects in our magazine. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Everyone is going to #occupywoodshop! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: You and the other 100+… RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair got a link so I can stalk you #woodchat

@lucaspeters: @MansFineFurn¬†…basically, tools & materials you can easily find at the home center. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @lucaspeters I would only disagree in that when I started, I started with one of those, and accumulated them as needed over time #woodchat

@Furnitology: Thanks #woodchat¬†and Thanks “get woodworking” @TomsWorkbench¬†#woodchat

@BoatworksToday: oh, great.. @occupywoodshop! my wife’s going to be pissed.. Ha Ha!! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: By the way, i think that is 13 straight woodchats since the reboot! #woodchat

@bmorewoodwork: Time to #occupywoodshop #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @bmorewoodwork: Time to #occupywoodshop #woodchat

Woodworkers Discuss Design and Prototyping: Woodchat Transcript January 25th, 2012

Woodworkers discussed design and prototyping from sketching or drafting with paper and pencil, utilizing free tools like Google Sketchup or professional CAD programs like TurboCAD. We also discussed building foam prototypes like Rob Bois has done.

Woodchat Transcript January 25th, 2012 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern

@tomrbnsnfrnture: I am about to do some Extreme Laminating. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @SMeekWoodworks¬†How’s the new job at GPD¬†going? #woodchat

@superdav721: Hello everyone #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @superdav721 welcome! #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: Hello. I’ll play the “new guy” role. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: To see a great video about using prototypes to work out the details, check this out from @theboisshop http://t.co/z2Ef3n14 #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: I already did my homework. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @McPhersonDoug hey Doug! glad you could jump in! #woodchat

@theboisshop: @uppercutwood¬†Thanks for the props. Oh, and I’m home in time for #woodchat!

@McPhersonDoug: @uppercutwood thanks for the invite and for complimenting my work/website yesterday. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop¬†That’s fantastic, since I wanted you to contribute¬†to the prototype discussion, pink foam guy! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @McPhersonDoug¬†no problem, it’s great stuff¬†#woodchat

@uppercutwood: I’m also hanging out, with extras apparently. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: 6 o’clock boys! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: oh, and I have chew in. #dontbeoffended #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hello all #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair Chris! good to see you brohamich! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: hey all #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: How did I earn that name? RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair Chris! good to see you brohamich! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Good evening woodchatters! Looking forward to this one. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I may make it in at the end. I’ve got Tweetchat¬†open #woodchat

@UserOfWood: i¬†use cardboard sometimes.it’s quick and cheap https://t.co/WOZDkRdP #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Welcome everyone! Ready to get rolling? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Woodchat’ll¬†never let me down, unlike my twice canceled book club. Evening guys! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: When I make prototypes, I try to make parts removable. For example, I use lots of screws and little glue. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Yes , indeed. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: Lets do eet #woodchat

@woodshaver101: Hi all, whats the topic #woodchat

@superdav721: Yes please #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: If the first one I make turns out bad I call it a prototype. otherwise I call it done. #woodchat

@imaginer99: I do lots and lots of scribbling on my whiteboard and scraps of paper. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @woodshaver101 Learning Design and Prototyping to Increase Confidence and Success #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Topic tonight: Learning Design and Prototyping to Increase Confidence and Success #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I’ll just throw this out: anyone see @renaissanceww¬†post today postulating that designing (plans) aren’t necessary? (simplified) #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Going to try doing the hangout and be here at the same time. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Well played! RT @benjamenjohnson: If the first one I make turns out bad I call it a prototype. otherwise I call it done. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: First to learn elements of design, George Walker is a good place to start. http://t.co/8sSiQDWl #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson I like that philosophy a lot! #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Evening all. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn I saw that over on G+. #woodchat

@superdav721: @MansFineFurn yes I did #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Saw that and posted a comment to send people here #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @MansFineFurn I put in my two cents worth. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Designing is necessary. You can do without plans. #woodchat

@imaginer99: RT @thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson I like that philosophy a lot! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: some of my best design ideas start with the classics,golden rectangles and the golden mean #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @uppercutwood¬†i’d¬†really like to take a class from George. he’s teaching one close to me, just need to see if the time works. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Looks like he was getting a jump start on our conversation. #woodchat

@superdav721: @woodshaver101 agreed #woodchat

@thewoodninja: In 14 years, every one of my designs started with a function in mind. #woodchat

@dividedlight: Multitasking but I’m here tonight. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I think for complex pieces prototypes are great to figure out the curves and crazy details. #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: I generally take @benjaminjohnson approach after some drawings. Also make changes throughout the build. #woodchat

@celamens: @uppercutwood¬†I’m here! May be short though. #Woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @woodshaver101¬†I don’t worry about golden ratios when designing. I just trust my eye. By checking afterwards I know I get close. #woodchat

@Wood_Jedi: Hello my fellow woodchatters #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: On Shannon’s post, If I can’t figure out 90% of the project just from the pictures people post, I figure I shouldn’t be¬†making it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @McPhersonDoug¬†That’s an iterative way #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @uppercutwood I agree. Tough to get the feel for a piece sometimes w/o a full scale. #woodchat

@superdav721: @ChrisHasFlair Your eye usually will bring you to the ratio #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I like to use SketchUp. Only downside is you can lose perspective of the actual size of the piece. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @McPhersonDoug¬†I’m not sure I’ve ever built something without making at least one change along the way. #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: Not proud of either of my habits. Just sayin’ #woodchat

@Wood_Jedi: @ChrisHasFlair I use the Golden ratio often in my cabinet and box making

@when I need a simple design #woodchat

@woodshaver101: any one ever read the Chippendale directer.or the Victorian cabinet makers assistant #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @McPhersonDoug You just @replied the wrong guy.. check the spelling :>) #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair I aggree its just a starting point #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: No. Have you? Recommended? RT @woodshaver101: any one ever read the Chippendale directer.or the Victorian cabinet makers assistant #woodchat

@celamens: Can someone fill me in on golden ratio? #Woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson¬†Poor Benjamin ūüôā @McPhersonDoug¬†#woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I like Sketchup, but I’d rather be working on something than drawing. If it was something that needed mass production it’s great. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @celamens The golden ratio is a naturally occurring ratio that is pleasing to the eye. 1:1.6, I believe. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Part of your reliance on design, plan, and prototype depends on who you are, where you are in your skills, and what you’ve built. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @celamens http://t.co/Df6s4cMO #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair 1:1.618 to be precise #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I am working on learning sketchup #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: All mine are steel ūüôā RT @WatkinsWoodWork: anyone make a golden rule to aid them in the design process? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood Also what you make. #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Sorry I’m so quiet, was trying to find a TedTalks¬†video about 3d¬†printers. Thought it would fit for prototyping. #woodchat

@celamens: @uppercutwood Thanks! Will be reading that later. #Woodchat

@superdav721: @ChrisHasFlair i draw something out then apply my Fibonacci gauge to see how it worked out #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: I’m a Sketchup¬†fan myself, but I can only handle sitting in front of it for so long. I’ve actually been drawing cabs all day on it #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: On the golden rule I just learned a cool fact, it is related¬†to the Fibonacci sequence. Ain’t math great! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @celamens http://t.co/Jkw9FxMl this little video explained it well #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @ramblinrdesigns¬†i¬†like sketchup¬†too, but sometime proportions can get skewed. that’s where the mock-up comes in #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn 1.6180339887498948482 to be preciser! #woodchat


@ramblinrdesigns: This book has some helpful tips. http://t.co/ZS0PYdcT #woodchat

@Torch02: @SMeekWoodworks I heard @uppercutwood is waiting to get trained on a 3D printer at work #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @SMeekWoodworks¬†Why don’t you find and post the video later? I don’t think anybody has time to watch it now during #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @superdav721 Did u make or buy your gauge? I’ve been thinking¬†of either building one or buying it but haven’t done so yet #woodchat

@Torch02: @ChrisHasFlair¬†@MansFineFurn¬†Just use 8:5 as “good enough” for the #GoldenRule¬†#woodchat

@superdav721: @benjamenjohnson Walt Disney did 3 shows on the Fibonacci ratio that is great its on youtube. #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Good point. ūüôā #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @WatkinsWoodWork You can buy Phi rules from Lee Valley. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Speaking of GoldenRatio,I don’t think the new toolbox I’m building has the right proportions, I bet it isn’t even close to the GR. #woodchat

@superdav721: @WatkinsWoodWork made it out of walnut. I have 3 of them at different scales. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Torch02 and a laser printer too. Get to use them for free. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @superdav721 Donald duck in Mathemagic land? #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: @ChrisHasFlair @MansFineFurn You have tools that can make stuff to 19 decimal places? How much do those cost?? #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: Excellent thanks for the lead RT @ChrisHasFlair: @WatkinsWoodWork You can buy Phi rules from Lee Valley. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @uppercutwood I mean laser engraver/cutter #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: My design process starts with my sketchbook I carry with me at all times. I love hand sketching, when I take the time to do it. #woodchat

@superdav721: @benjamenjohnson you got it its great. Even the grandson liked it. He is 2 #woodchat

@imaginer99: @benjamenjohnson¬†That’s the best one! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: I use e cabinet systems ,and a sketch pad #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BobbyHagstrom I only use 2 decimal placed. My last piece was 100000000000000000.00mm x 161803398874989484.82mm. Just kidding. #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: Golden ratios or other mathematical concepts like fractal geometry can be¬†a good “check” on a design to tweak dimensions. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: i need to get better at hand sketches suggestions? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Woodworking for Mere Mortals build a Phi “rule” Check that out http://t.co/Gh4ttzPH #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @WatkinsWoodWork Full disclosure, I work part-time at Lee Valley. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: LV… Great place! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn¬†Practice. And don’t use a pencil so you’re not tempted to erase. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, do you get to play with all the neat tools? #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: Touché. U deserve a raise. RT @ChrisHasFlair: @WatkinsWoodWork Full disclosure, I work part-time at Lee Valley. #woodchat

@imaginer99: @MansFineFurn Just sketch what are you are thinking about. specifics at first #woodchat

@superdav721: I work with software all day. When sketching i use good old graph paper. #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: Finewoodworking had a great article on how to sketch several months back. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: A little off topic, but how do you shorten URLs in TweetChat? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson You bet! I was demoing Festools last week for three days. #woodchat

@wintersedge: I would be curious to see how many commercial woodworkers have moved to CNC in some aspect of their product builds. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @WatkinsWoodWork¬†Please tell my boss ūüôā #woodchat

@woodshaver101: real cabinet makers us a napkin and a lumber crayon #woodchat

@Wood_Jedi: Has anyone tried the new cutting board design software @MeremortalsWW was showing in his last project video? #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @MansFineFurn Just keep drawing. A lot. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: I truly prefer to do a rough sketch and work by the seat of my pants. Tried sketchup but found it cumbersome. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: As much as I make fun of sketching I use the green engineering paper to do a rough sketch to figure out how much material I need. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Recommened book to get great at sketching http://t.co/OeJMjjgq #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: Trying to think of the author….Legendary Canadian woodworker #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: For some reason, I like to sketch designs using only a red pen on white paper. #woodchat

@dividedlight: I am still drafting on an antique wooden table. lol #woodchat

@superdav721: @woodshaver101 And toilet paper. Its the only room I am left alone in to think. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: When sketching, I use pen so¬†I can’t erase. Then I look at all my sketches and see not only what I like but what I don’t. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @wintersedge not many, i think cnc tends to slow things down #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Sweet, I’m jealous, but do you ever buy any of the tools? #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: It’s your inner accountant RT @BobbyHagstrom: For some reason, I like to sketch designs using only a red pen on white paper. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Wood_Jedi Cutting board design software? Seriously? #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @wintersedge We get a lot of our router templates and jig parts made in CNC. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @superdav721 Real men use sandpaper. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Do you X out the designs you don’t like? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Me too. MT @WatkinsWoodWork: I prefer to do a sketch and work by the seat of my pants. Tried sketchup but found it cumbersome. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @superdav721 LOL. good one #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Chris Wong? Michael Fortune? RT @McPhersonDoug: Trying to think of the author….Legendary Canadian woodworker #woodchat

@superdav721: @benjamenjohnson I cant draw on sandpaper. I can erase with it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So, are you sketching or drafting? What do you consider the difference? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Why do you use pen? If I couldn’t erase, I’d soon give up. #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @WatkinsWoodWork As with anything, practice makes it work better for you. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Of course. RT @benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Sweet, Im jealous, but do you ever buy any of the tools? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: No. I know by looking. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair Do you X out the designs you dont like? #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: I do quite a bit of small work/boxes etc and my clientel is great in letting me just work it out as the piece progresses #woodchat

@superdav721: Sketching to me lets me change the idea. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Phil Lowe recommends making full size drawings to build from http://t.co/AU3onrj1 #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: There are two sides for a reason. RT @superdav721: @benjamenjohnson I cant draw on sandpaper. I can erase with it. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood sketching or cad drawing take about the same time,its being able to change things that cad has the advantage #woodchat

@dividedlight: @uppercutwood Sketching is freehand and drafting is to scale. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Paper is cheap. RT @benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Why do you use pen? If I couldnt erase, Id soon give up. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @woodshaver101 Not for me. Sketching is much faster and easier to make changes with. #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: @ChrisHasFlair Michael Fortune #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: SketchUp helps me visualize joinery issues and create actual working dimensions. It gets easier the more you use it. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: I would agree RT @dividedlight: @uppercutwood Sketching is freehand and drafting is to scale. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: We’re halfway over, any questions/topics you’d like to share or ask about? #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: RT @dividedlight: @uppercutwood Sketching is freehand and drafting is to scale. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Twitter is choking #woodchat

@superdav721: @dividedlight I use graft paper to sketch with so it keeps me in a proper scale. It helps my eye. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I like doodle/sketch to start with , then move to measured drawing #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: The job I am working on right now was sold to the client via a SketchUp rendering. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Breaking news: #woodchat¬†killed Twitter. ūüôā #woodchat


@McPhersonDoug: the better you are at sketching, the closer you should be to drafting then, correct? #woodchat

@Wood_Jedi: @Chrishasflair Yes Seriously #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: CAD is more useful there. RT @ramblinrdesigns: The job I am working on right now was sold to the client via a SketchUp rendering. #woodchat

@superdav721: I like prototypes for designing my jigs. And if the final project is an exotic. I would rather practice on a secondary wood. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns¬†For speculative work, that benefit doesn’t apply. #woodchat

@superdav721: @ChrisHasFlair what happened? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I made a mini prototype once. It was fun and helped me to see the size ratios.

@Barbie would have loved it. #woodchat”

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns¬†I suppose that’s one reason to sit down and really learn SketchUp. I never thought of it like that. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: #woodchat¬†We’re halfway over, any questions/topics you’d like to share or ask about?

@woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair I agree.everytime i show a job on my laptop,its a sold job #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @superdav721 I was getting messages saying “Twitter is overloaded” and “Twitter is down”. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Customers do like renderings before making the project deposit. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @superdav721 Good point about prototypes. Using cheaper wood to perfect it before you use exotics. #woodchat

@Bowtech_10: i like sketchup but i am better with acad in 2D #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair¬†The CAD programs I’ve seen are pricey. Plus, another learning curve to master is daunting. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @woodshaver101 How many hours do you put into the Sketchup model? Do you charge for designing? #woodchat

@Wood_Jedi: Just got a plan for a 17th century Pennsylvania Spice Cabinet I will be redrawing it in Sketch up before the build.. #woodchat

@superdav721: @benjamenjohnson To me the prototype is my scetchup. It is the way I debug the project. To scale. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood ,yes they do ,its more professional. image and presentation is important #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I think the takeaway for me is, it’s important to sketch for concepts and inspiraion. Whether or not you make plans is up to you. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @superdav721¬†I don’t think a rendering is as good as a physical prototype. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I tend to plan just enough to feel confident about the build, and plan the hardest joinery, and then go forward. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair I eat the time I spend creating the SketchUp model, but it also gets my mind into the project and helps me focus. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair around 4 to 6 hours to draw a custom kitchen,I charge,if they want the drawings without signing a contract #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair it is usually cheaper though. Do you prototype? #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @uppercutwood Agreed #woodchat

@superdav721: @ChrisHasFlair Agreed very much so. #woodchat

@Bowtech_10: @uppercutwood this is what i usually do too #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ramblinrdesigns I like Alibre Design as an inexpensive CAD program. #woodchat

@OnBlank: @WatkinsWoodWork #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns¬†And if the job doesn’t happen? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @woodshaver101¬†That’s a good plan. #woodchat

@superdav721: @BillGriggs good evening. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @BillGriggs¬†Thanks. I’ll have a look. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood When I am developing a new piece of furniture I do prototype. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns ditto I do the sketchups for free to (usually) if the customer is serious. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Furniture, especially chairs, are much more interactive than cabinets and I can’t get a feel of ergonomics through a rendering. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Haven’t had that happen yet. Every design proposal I’ve created so far has turned into a job. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood¬†same here, though one of my resolutions for the year is to be more regimented about making and saving designs #woodchat”

@ChrisHasFlair: The same goes to strength – what joinery is adequate, how thick does a certain part NEED to be… #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: I sketch w/ red pen for concepts, the work out difficult dimensions/ joinery angles in cad, since I have an engineering background.#woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ramblinrdesigns I have a discount code if you want it. Send me a direct message. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns¬†Wow. That’s great. I hope that continues for you! #woodchat

@Bowtech_10: i make sure there serious and then design for free the design helps me more than them. that way i go in the right direction #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @ChrisHasFlair Prototyping joinery is definitely a good idea. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair when you present a job and dont be afraid to ask to be paid,for your time,I include it if a contract is signed #woodchat

@BillGriggs: I just got a good offer on a Festool Domino. Are they worth it? #woodchat

@dividedlight: @benjamenjohnson I will prototype difficult joints with cheap wood to ensure my settings. Entry door mid-rails can be very tricky. #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: I’ve used graph paper/pen for simple stuff & it works fine. 3D renderings do help sell stuff; I just lack practice in Sketchup. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @BillGriggs¬†I would but I don’t know how to send a direct message. Help please. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @BillGriggs there nice #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @SMeekWoodworks¬†“Oops. I guess butt joints aren’t strong enough for a chair!” ūüėÄ Does anyone have a CAD that will tell you that? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BillGriggs¬†It depends on if you will¬†use it. I like mine and I think it’s worth it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs i prefer my Jet Floor Stand Mortiser #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @ChrisHasFlair lol #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @BillGriggs YES! #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @BillGriggs YES! #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @BillGriggs¬†Heard lots of good things about the domino even tho I don’t own one. #woodchat

@superdav721: @ChrisHasFlair¬†My butt joints to my chair just fine.. sorry couldn’t help it. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Hey guys…sorry I couldn’t chat tonight. #woodchat

@Bowtech_10: @superdav721 lol #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @superdav721¬†Do you use Superglue? (I couldn’t resist either!) #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns The @FestoolUSA Domino is an awesome machine. #woodchat

@superdav721: @ChrisHasFlair¬†depends ūüėČ #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs¬†I know my dad who has built custom cabinetry for about as long as I’ve been alive says they are worth every penny. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair Yes, I do in fact have CAD that will tell me that! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ramblinrdesigns send it through Twitter #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn¬†No you don’t. Really? Really?! Do you trust it? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: What is the general opinion about using pocket screw joinery for parts of a high end design? #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns The @FestoolUSA Domino is an awesome machine. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MansFineFurn What, do you model in Pro/E with Finite Element Analysis? #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood Why do you prefer it? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Yes, totally. (Do you trust airplane designs?) If one were to design, say a minimalist ash chair and… (cont) #woodchat

@superdav721: @ramblinrdesigns I cant do it. I dont know why. But I just cant. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns High-end design is different than high-end craftsmanship. With high-end design, anything goes. ANYTHING. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @ramblinrdesigns I like them for face frame joinery only, #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs I like the integral tendon, not the floating #woodchat

@BillGriggs: RT @SMeekWoodworks: @BillGriggs YES! #woodchat

@Bowtech_10: @ramblinrdesigns will for kitchen cabinets but not high end furniture #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns¬†I’d have no problem with it as long as it was completely hidden, but then again I’m not a paying customer. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @ramblinrdesigns Depends on where the pockets are on the piece #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair ..want to know how big a butt it can handle (safety margin), I can do it. @benjamenjohnson Solidworks #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: @benjamenjohnson¬†@MansFineFurn¬†Don’t tempt me to do FEA¬†on my design! I have a whole book on stress analysis for doug¬†fir… #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: haven’t had an opportunity¬†for FEA¬†on woodwork yet, but there’s always the first time! (ahem…minimalist ash chairs, for example) #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn You must have input for variables like material type, elasticity, glue, amount of stress applied, where, angle.. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @WatkinsWoodWork Mostly just face frame joinery. Completely hidden. #woodchat


@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn¬†Are you saying you have the software or a big butt? ūüėČ #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair yes, boundary conditions, material properties… are needed¬†for that, but I digress. I want to design more like you #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn¬†What is this ash chair you speak of? Tell me more! ūüėÄ #woodchat

@superdav721: Good night all. Blessings and Peace. It was fun. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair yes #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @ramblinrdesigns¬†I’ve done a few pieces with pocket holes but only in areas that they were extremely hidden and inaccessible #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn¬†That’s impressive. Solidworks, you say? Still, I feel more comfortable working in the real world. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: Fibonacci design video i think everyone would enjoy http://t.co/S6UWzVrr #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns We had a bed made semi-custom and they left the pocket holes unplugged on the back of the headboard, not cool. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @celamens glad you could make it #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @superdav721¬†Goodnight, Dave. Hope nobody’s glued your butt to your chair. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Goal for 2012: Sketch More, Draft Better, Prototype (aka get over the fear of ‘wasting’ materials on a prototype) and build more #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @benjamenjohnson I agree, pocket screw mania #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson Do you make your own dowel plugs for the pocket holes or buy them premade? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Probably the best thing that happened for me was getting a glut of wood, more than I know what to do with. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: I make my own. RT @BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson Do you make your own dowel plugs for the pocket holes or buy them premade? #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @ChrisHasFlair Jealous #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MansFineFurn¬†Yeah, I have a cheap streak, I’m always afraid to waste good wood. I need to work on that too. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I’ve got that too, hasn’t seemed to do it for me yet (frugal yankee¬†that I am) I’ll get there, with your help #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: If I may ask, what did each of you have for dinner? I need some inspiration. (No Sketchup drawings, please!) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Haven’t had dinner yet. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @SMeekWoodworks¬†If you lived closer, I’d be trying to pawn some of it off on you. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: well Im out good night all GOD BLESS #woodchat

@hellobearrabbit: Just wanted to say hello to all my fellow woodworkers! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @SMeekWoodworks¬†Forgot to tell you, I’m sending your wood Friday, I didn’t mark which was which, so I’m sending them all, enjoy! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs¬†I’ve only used pocket joinery on stuff for the shop, so I don’t plug. But I know it’s a good strong joint #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair¬†Ramen. I didn’t want to be late for woodchat¬†so I ate it while I chatted. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair Buffalo Chicken Salad #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn¬†That sounds good! I don’t think we have any lettuce though… #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @theboisshop Hope Whitney was worth it! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Same here. RT @benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Ive only used pocket joinery on stuff for the shop, so I dont plug. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson¬†I used a Kreg¬†Jig to make pocket holes for my shop cabinets. Very strong. I’ll post a picture on my blog. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs¬†when I plug straight holes, I have a set of plug cutters that I use to make matching plugs…sometimes it even works! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair spinach? Arugula? Dandelion? wood shavings? #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @MansFineFurn Awesome! Looking forward to it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn¬†@theboisshop had to leave to watch America’s Worst SitCom. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @hellobearrabbit¬†Hello. Afraid you missed tonight’s chat. We’re all done. #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: I used pocket joinery on my bathroom cabinets; I left them unplugged because they were on the inside below the countertop. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BillGriggs¬†You could also put a veneer over the holes. That’s what I would do. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns Ooh, I was thinking of that before dinner, I smelled it somewhere, but the kids wanted pizza #woodchat

@hellobearrabbit: @ramblinrdesigns¬†oh well no worries, I figured some people were still trolling the hashtag ūüôā #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @ChrisHasFlair Bummer #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn¬†Hmm. I should have at least ONE of those… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @hellobearrabbit welcome! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @hellobearrabbit Hello back at ya. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Even though woodchat¬†is “over” keep it going, we can hang #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Time to go read to my daughter, goodnight all! #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Now you’re making me hungry. Guess I’ll have to go scare up some real dinner. Until next week. Same time. Same channel. Bye. #woodchat

@hellobearrabbit: @ChrisHasFlair nice! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns Goodnight! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ramblinrdesigns¬†Try the Chili. It’s great. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair¬†If you need other meal ideas, I’ll review¬†the past week’s menu #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: Catch u boys later. Time to spent some time with the mrs. And get our star trek nerd on… #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Woodchips and barbeque sauce sounds appetizing. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn @ChrisHasFlair what should I eat tonight guys? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: This weekend! Splitting a BIG red oak to make 17th c., Follansbee Joint Stools (pre-ordered the book today) http://t.co/dovVAsw3 #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Sounds fun. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: So what did we learn tonight? #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: I had Doritos!! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BobbyHagstrom¬†That’s healthy. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ChrisHasFlair How to do a stopped Dado. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair¬†I learned I need to learn to draw, and you need a little finite element analysis to temper your “reality” ūüėČ #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BillGriggs Hmm. I missed that somehow. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Alright gents (and any remaining ladies) time for me to quit. Good times! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Too much reality? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Okay, I’m being dragged off to get dinner rolling. See you all later. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: OK guys I’m checking out, I’ll get the transcript posted darn soon at http://t.co/RlIo5QTB #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood the tweet report link I sent you last week: if you save the html report of it, and link to that, transcript persists #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn once you save it they keep it in their cache? Cool #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good night woodchatters. See you next Wednesday at 9 PM East #woodchat
