WOW! Where did that come from?

Ken, quite frankly, I am shocked by your vitriol; why are you being such a hater?

Do we all need to sing Kum Ba Yah and have a group hug?!




Now, back on topic....

I am tired of clients who tell me they want a design unlike anything they have ever seen, and you go to the trouble of figuring out some crazy new way to skin a cat, and then they get scared about being different and ask for another boring old whatever.

Boring! I would love to have a button I could push that would say that when they disappointed me. I would wear that sucker out some days.

*sigh*... , maybe it's just the low pressure system that has been around for the last couple of weeks, but, sometimes, it's just hard to be enthused.

cheers, chuck

It is funny how people come BACK to HAUNT the forum AGAIN!!! Maybe it is the time of TRICK or TREAT. I left the forum to get away from the silliness. But somehow we are being TRICKED and a repeat performance is no TREAT for us. I will fade out again.

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

Hey, that is a pretty sweet invention; thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Here is a good one for centered mortises. I like tricks. Swivel hardware.

you'd do up the same on the tenon, no, and if slightly wider, you are splitting the difference... so do away with reference faces and all?

Will timber framers use glue?

What is the accepted view on adhesives? Any distinction between animal and synthetic bonding agents?

Will they glue a shard back together when it tears out while they are drilling?

Will they glue wood together to make laminated timbers?

Will they use super glue to glue the gouge they took out of their hand back together when they mishandled the grinder for a spit second?

Cheers, Chuck

Don't wind these guys up on that past issue Chuck. I'll take you at your word that you are who you say you are, until you prove me wrong.

What makes you a timberframer? Well I've only been at it for 3 years now, and I've helped build 2 frames, and helped raise a total of 4. I've acquired much knowledge to add to my design and engineering and hands on building backround. I consider myself a timberframer as I know I can jump in and build or help build a frame. But besides all that stuff, I think what really makes me one, is my love of the process, and doing the details well. To me, those who just want the end product, the frame or home, are missing the best part, the hands on, the thinking, the building, the attention to detail and wanting it do be done well, even the stuff no one else will ever see. From all the people I've met in the guild so far, that seems to be a common thread. We're all nuts like that. I restore my own classic cars too. When I am actually finished with one, I find it anticlimactic. It's the process I enjoy. For all those people who buy a classic car, or a timberframe home finished, I sort of feel sorry for them, because they've missed the best part. There's a whole different level of appreciation and satisfaction that goes with the process. On the flip side, it can also sometimes take some of the mystery or magic away, but usually the other stuff more than makes up for that.

Yes, I'd use glue to fix a chip out situation if it were something that was going to show, but I'm not going to use it in a structural situation.
A grinder? We have to get you to cut that out. Not sure how you'd even use one in a frame construction. We have these things called chisels. You're sounding like a hacker when you talking about using a grinder. Steve Chappell summed it up best for me when he described timberframing as a "pursuit of perfection and grace." Does that describe you or not?
