The Slightly Confused Woodworker

I would like to thank God, and the academy…


I don’t consider this woodworking blog self-serving, not really. By that I mean I am not writing this blog for money or fame or infamy. I am, in a sense, probably like most home woodworkers in that I would love to be able to say that I make furniture for a living, but for many reasons I cannot. This blog is my nearest and best connection to the woodworking world; I also have an account on Lumberjocks that I admittedly don’t do much with. I sometimes post photos of the projects I make, but generally I go on the site just because I enjoy looking at the project photos of other amateur woodworkers. Last night, mainly out of boredom, I posted a few photos of my recent tool chest project with a brief description of the build and materials used. So it came as a pretty big surprise when I received an email this morning congratulating me for having my tool chest being voted a “Top 3 Daily” project on the Lumberjocks website. I’m not really sure how that all works, but I was very honored for my part that my project was selected. My only wish was that I had some better photos to post instead of the iPhone photos that I used.

So here is a link to the page for anybody who may wish to check it out. Those of you who read this blog on a regular or semi regular basis have probably seen the photos already. As I said, I’m not really sure how the top three projects of the day are chosen on Lumberjocks, but I really appreciate the fact that some person or persons thought enough of my woodworking to make it a featured project of the day.

Award winning tool chest.

    The pictures from your Iphone are a lot better looking than mine take with a cheap camera from ALDI (A really cheap shop)

      The iPod actually isn’t too bad. We have a digital camera that was somewhat state of the art four years ago. Now I may as well have a chisel and stone tablet compared to the cameras that are on the market today. My wife, of course, would love to purchase a fancy new camera with all of the bells and whistles. I want to wait a year for the new models to arrive and then purchase the prior model, which at that point is usually less than half the original cost. But that would only be logical.

    OK, your tool chest is better than mine ……. and I think that’s GREAT!

    You can now feel as Sally Fields did:

    “But this time I feel it. And I can’t deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!”

    Congrats my friend!

    Congratulations! And I really like that quote you added after your blog address — “I don’t believe in isms, I just believe in me.”
