Thanks, James, I love checking this site out. Still getting up the courage to delve seriously into building a shed, if I ever finish my living room shelves. joyce

Thanks James for the Welcome Mat.
Ya I thought about putting them on the outside but I'm just using cheap pine boards & staining them Walnut. I was afraid with Staining it the plugs wouldn't match & they'd stick out like my sore thumb! Lol! Is there not a way to put them on the inside & get good strength? I tried different depths & thickness settings but couldn't get it right! Any other suggestions?

Hi James, the "Popular Projects" feed at the right side is generated automatically by the Community site based on what people are looking at. The more times something gets viewed in a short time frame, the higher it goes in the rankings. Neither of these have a large number of views, but have been viewed multiple times in the last couple of days, so that moved them up in the rankings.

We've contacted the one member to ask if he intended that to be his profile and to show him how to do that. The other about knots was apparently intriguing enough to make people look, so that moved it to #20.

This list is always changing as people look at new images. Plus, we can change this feed to show other things besides photos, such as popular discussions, etc. Regardless of what we tell the feed to show, though, the site automatically ranks them based on what people are viewing.

Hi James. Sorry I missed this message. We don't control what photos end up in the "projects." Those are uploaded by users as either a photo or a project, and the project includes the photos they add.


At 9:52am on September 4, 2014, KregRep said…

Thanks again for your suggestion. A new section has been added at the top right of the community main page with the Customer Service phone number and a link to the Customer Service contact form on our website.

Hi Jim.  I did find a local ma and pa woodworking shop that was able to order them for me at a reasonable price.  Project turned out very nice; grandson loves his double bench sandbox....

In that case break a leg with your sales always great to have more money to buy more tools, I like some of your boxes I have seen in your pictures.

 Thank you for the nice pictures of your projects. I did like the inlay of red heart I think its called on the candle box. I went up online and looked at Rockler's catalog on their box of hardwoods such as curly maple, purpleheart, oak, south american hardwoods too. I can't wait until I get my electric put in sometime this summer.

Hi Jim,  Thank you for your words of encouragement.  Yes I am getting better even is it is slow it is something to be thankful for.  I still have double vision and the nerve damage from the shingles attack.  I have a doctor's appoint with a specialist in May and will know what the outcome is going to be. 

I have recently been in the shop building a customer some custom base molding for his house.  It does feel good to be able to do something and I do miss the members of the Community.  I do read the posts but cut my replies as it is hard to look at a computer screen for a length of time.  Sometimes I will reply if it is something that I feel that I can help a member with.  As time passes I will start replying more and will soon be pestering everyone with my comments.  After all I did promise that in a prior post.  There is a lot of good people and talent on this site and if I can help just one in his woodworking experience, then it has been worth all the efforts that I have put into it. 

I saw your framed pictures and was impressed with the nice and attractive photos framed with custom frames.  You did an out standing job with the frames.  I especially liked the one with the inlay and I am glad to see that you are starting inlay work as it is something that will definitely bring some exciting looks to projects.  Doing inlay is like all other phases of woodworking it just takes time and mostly the courage to begin doing it.  A few learning mistakes and it will all fall into place.  Thanks again for your friendship and take care of yourself.  Jay

 Nice looking display cabinet. I like that stain you put on it. Are you going to poly it before delivering to your client? Nice and roomy for displaying anything. You did a great job on it.
