What's one interesting fact about you, your life, your garage, shop, or home?
I just learned a ton about home construction -- my partner and I had to project manage the rebuild of our 1979 two-story home which was gutted to the studs following a July 4th 2009 roof fire. In March 2010, we were still at the studs and were being told we were ready for sheet-rocking. We questioned this for several reasons and after bringing in several independent inspectors/experts, locked down the property. What a greuling experience! I'll save the rest for the book we're writing for homeowners who suffer a similar loss. The rebuild was finally completed and we moved home exactly a year later on the July 4th weekend 2010. We are now busy with our day jobs in Telecom, writing the book, rebuilding our health from the tremendous stress and many hours it takes to rebuild a home while being displaced and having your company acquired/taken over for the second time (from GTE to Verizon and now Frontier). Life is good despite the challenges. And the rebuild gave us the opportunity to bring our 1979 NW contemporary home into the next century while maintaining the integrity of the past and the quality and beauty of wooden things. Will post some pics of the wood we incorporated when I get the chance. I joined this community because I am interested in finally pursuing my true love - working with wood and making tangible, useable items - and so I can hopefully correct some of the felony crimes committed against the wood in our home by the rebuild construction firm's contracted "finish" carpenters. Would love to quit my day job and work with wood full-time!

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.
