The one floor like like an extended "Hand over Hand" concept.
Did you design this?


Life is short so put your heart into something that will last a long time.

There was a recent row with a poster to the forum who has since been asked to not post here anymore... and your first post has a very familiar ring to it - philosophical meanderings, open ended questions, and all, etc.

Either you are legit ( looking at your webiste you seem to be who you say you are) - or someone has registered using your good name. smile

Anyway. Folks are a bit trigger happy here with some recent shenanigans.

But this is the internet, so you may be a dog posing as a 12 year old girl posing as a middle aged timber framer design carpenter guy. We may never know.

wink

Haha, okay, I did miss something.

I thought I had overstepped my bounds, or something.

I added my website to my signature, so everyone can check me out. Though, like all artists, the site is dreadfully out of date and hasn't been updated in almost 2 years (says to self, yikes!) I won't go so far as to say I am legitimate, but I really am Chuck Gailey.

The subforum did say philosophical musings, so I figured that open ended questions where appreciated.

Anyhoo, hopefully we can get back on topic.


Have you guys noticed that carpenters seem to get stuck in the trap of thinking that they do something unique and amazing? They don't like to share their hard earned secrets; they have an attitude of arrogance, and they act like no one has ever done what they have done, or as well.

Do you guys encounter that attitude in the guild, too?

I may have a very cynical world view, but I have always believed that all art is derivative. And that nothing is as dangerous as a person who has been a carpenter for 3 or 4 years. And that it was my duty, as a skilled and experienced builder to share as much knowledge as possible with whomever listens.

I'm thinking the diagonal recip floor, btw, as I like they way it transfers load across the corners, where as the rectilinear one feels a little more iffy, for lack of a technical term.

Cheers, Chuck

In general, we find that the Guild attitude is wide-open when it comes to 'tricks' and 'secrets' as in, they're aren't any. Or at least not many.

Well, that is a refreshing attitude! I never understood why so many carpenters act like they are the second coming.

And, just for fun, I'll throw out one of the best timberframing tips I ever saw/heard.

Buy a laser and use it!

Cheer, Chuck.

There is probably some sort of joke hidden beneath the surface of the concepts of Carpenter and Second Coming, but I am not looking for it too hard.

We believe in lasers!

You will see laser layout for scribe work routinely used at TFG events, and taught in classes.

Coolest thing since the cordless drill.

Haha, dang, I wish I had meant that on purpose; it just came out on accident.

One of the guys I work with uses two lasers, shining vertically on his drill bits, for drilling beautifully straight peg holes.

Thing of beauty, works amazingly well.

Or placing the laser horizontally down the middle of a knife blade cut and therefore having the laser shine right along the chainsaw bar; perfectly level every time.

Now if only they could get the darn things to actually cut...

Cheers, chuck

Any of this beginning to sound familiar ?


It must be the air up there in Montana......


This is a low blow, and you both should be ashamed. I wasn't going to comment at all on this whole issue, but this is too much, and it speaks for itself. Grow up.

Simpler and lower tech than lasers . . . from Clark Bremer . . . we have unbreakable mirrors with a hole in the middle.

Sounds improbable, but they work flawlessly to guide your drill in remaining perpendicular to the timber surface.

Cheap, too. http://tfguild.stores.yahoo.net/midrgu.html

Cordless! Y2K Compliant! Energy Star Compliant! Probably Free Range, Organic and Equal Exchange, too.
