  1. hey guys I kind of want to make a camp chair with wood legs, do you think I would need to reinforce the pivot point with some kind of metal sleeve that the bolt goes through? also what would a clean bolt to use? I've seen some wood leg camp chairs and they usually use this type of bracket thing
  2. haha just haven't been able to find a place with as cool of land as we have here and other mountain places seem to be covered in snow most of the year or dead as the desert. kind of tough
  3. yeah my friends in Southlake were trying to convince me to live there. we go there to ride dirtbike and its close to tahoe but I dont know if I could deal with not living in the woods. something nice about being surrounded by trees.
  4. found a couple of locking tv stands made for RV's not quite the same type of pivoting but may work. also not sure if you can lock the rotation https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071K9P3GK/?coliid=I3CV1L579VTKMN&colid=ETCCJ1QKIHJ9&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DOL2T46/?coliid=IS13SLQ5EOJDP&colid=ETCCJ1QKIHJ9&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01F2OZ0VM/?coliid=I2YZ9PNDV41JHW&colid=ETCCJ1QKIHJ9&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
  5. any idea the brand or where to look for them online?
  6. anyone know of one of these TV stands that are able to lock? the would be really nice for power carving but the ones I've seen are just under tension no way to like turn a handle to lock in place. I dont need it to be super tight and locked in like normal chisel carving would need but think it'd need more than stock tv stands
  7. Anyone have experience building a shop with living quarters? wondering how much the price difference would be between just a shop and shop with living quarters. Bonus if you built in California and have dealt with the higher cost permits. I'm single and 30, looking at houses in the mountains ~1 hours from tahoe (mostly out of the snow) and as you might have guessed my main priority is the workshop but also having a bit of land for other creative projects like milling up logs and such. I've looked at a couple houses with a separate little living cottages and that really excites me as I would just rent out the 3bed house and live in the little cottage. but many of the places only have a 2 car garages. I'm thinking I would want more space than a 2 car since I've been cramped in a less than 1 car garage shop for to long. I'm trying to figure out what would be best situation: a) buy house (rent it) + cottage (live in it) + 2 car garage, then build a bigger shop later b) buy house (live in 1 room, rent other 2) + 1-2 car garage, then build a big shop with living quarters so I can rent out the whole house later c) buy property, put in septic/well/electrical, build shop + living quarters, then later build a house
  8. Is there a bevel finder that both he bled and the edge are flat for drawing angles on stuff that aren't on the edge of a board? also would be nice if you can flip it over so both sides are flat. I guess what I'm thinking is the bad is thick like the he handle so its touching the ground. and the way you tighten it is on the back so you can flip it
  9. Have you guys found any volunteering type programs that let you use your woodworking/creative/hands on skill? I remember in high school I built bunk beds for some organization through our woodshop class and then there's the classic habitat for humanity, building houses.. not really sure where to to find these these types of programs tho?
  10. oh interesting never thought about a propane stove like a camp stove for that taste, seems like it would work really well since its a wide flame. https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Bottle-Propane-Stove-Green/dp/B0009PUR5E/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=propane+bottle+stove&qid=1575673419&sr=8-1
  11. hey guys any type of carpet or something that makes working in the cold garage better? thinking a rug would be nice but seems hard to sweep.. \
  12. Anyone sell some kind of tool holder that maybe sits on the propane bottle and holds the branding iron above the flame?
  13. And the sheet metal screw goes into the drywall anchor and the machine goes into the hook with the threaded insert?
