@DyamiPlotke: Hey #woodchat hope all is well. I've been off twitter for the day (work), but I'll try to participate if get home soon.

@Tooltutor: Going to miss #woodchat tonight. Going on 19 hrs in the delivery room. Why didn't anyone tell me about this part? #fatherhood

@uppercutwood: @Tooltutor congratulations! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I will be hanging out on Google+ during #woodchat



@WoodworkGuy: Good evening all #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I have woodchat up on Tweetchat...I'll record what I can. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: OK, woodchat is officially starting. I hope people can make it tonight. We're going to discuss where to get materials (cont) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: including wood, hardware, and other unique materials and how to incorporate them into your projects. (cont)#woodchat

@uppercutwood: May also discuss making your own hardware, or aging hardware. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood Good to see you Vic, I miss your musk! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor doesn't that kid know its time for #woodchat? #congrats


@uppercutwood: I got the topic idea after looking for the screen material for these lockers. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn How about other supplies, like unique materials into your projects, glass, screen, lighting, led, chrome, kevlar #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Or we could decide to cover another topic altogether, it's up to you guys #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Cool lockers. I like the fact they have screen on the bottom to to let snow drain to the floor.#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I thought that was interesting. These guys have cool door grilles

@thewoodninja: Evening fellas #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood I get most of my hardware from local true value or Lee Valley. You? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood No, I saw the tile floor and assumed... Hmm.. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke There are some cool custom suppliers, I always forget to check McMaster Carr though and it's a goldmine #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn I typically get inspired for non-standard materials from work. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood I'll have to check them next time. Thanks. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: On materials, anybody have a cheap source of plexiglass. The thicker stuff like 1/4" is expensive #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I would try McMaster Carr #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I don't use much in the way of non-std materials. I've been wanting to incorporate stone (rough granite?) into a design, bench? #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Not material but I'm looking for raised panel router bit sets. Usually use MLCS. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I haven't used any non standard materials so far either, but I can see working them in #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn stone is a great idea - I keep forgetting that, and slate, ceramic, or glass tiles too #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Does anyone have a project with unique materials they'd like to share? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Check out some of the cool materials here, that you could put into a frame and panel door

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood I'll look, but I really hate the Mcmaster Carr website. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I'm especially interested in including high tech items into a desk. Lighting, power, USB, phone docking, speakers...#woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Interesting stuff. I can see some possibilities for future cabinets. Thanks for the link. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Yeah, there are some cool desk products, but they are really expensive for how simple they are. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood sintered Stainless steel mesh looks cool from the link you just sent #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I would be happy with a USB 3.0 hub that was discrete to power up devices #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: yes, the sintered mesh is quite interesting. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn $77 per square foot for that! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood One thing I found that Monoprice is a really cheap place to buy monitor mounting hardware cant find anything USB3 #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood just said it was cool, not that I could afford it! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I am going to see Darrell Peart this weekend and audio record his G&G presentation with a new microphone.#woodchat

@kweinert: Anyone done anything with shoji paper? #woodchat

@sharpendwood: @uppercutwood I've used tin for panels that I punched a design into #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood I just checked out his website, wow! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I have a design concept that requires a large diameter 1-2" marble (the glass shooting kind, cateyes etc.) but black. Sources? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @kweinert I haven't, but I have been wanting to try a lamp with paper. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn I have used & love glass tiles in my woodworking projects #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I get to video tape his presentation on the 29th where he shows his shop. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sharpendwood Did you make your own punching tools? Were these similar to tile ceilings? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood true, maybe a blown-glass sphere would work instead. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MansFineFurn I would say Ax-man Surplus but they are only located in Minnesota. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: #woodchat This is a test. Is anybody there?

@BillGriggs: Hello alln #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn They might be able to get you a solid one too. #woodchat




@uppercutwood: Another good source for oddities is they have lots of shop supplies too. #woodchat




@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood here's my walnut & glass tile book stand #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Bill we are discussing sourcing and using interesting materials in your designs (glass, stone, metal, electronics, kevlar, etc) #woodchat

@asliceofwood: hello all tonight #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Parking meter guts...Cool! #woodchat

@kweinert: @uppercutwood Love that place - you can get some unusual stuff there, usually a pretty good deal too #woodchat

@BillGriggs: I'm learning Corian and wood inlays.nn #woodchat


@uppercutwood: @kweinert Great place to get containers too #woodchat

@imaginer99: Hello all! Is his still where woodchat is? #Woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs Do you have any photos or links showing the corian inlays? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Corian inlaid in wood, wood inlayed in Corian or somethin different #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @thewoodninja hey kenny....hows it going tonight? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Thanks @kweinert found my marbles!! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @imaginer99 It sure is, welcome aboard #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @imaginer99 Last time I checked that's what we were doing. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: No photos yet. Wood inlayed in Coriann #woodchat



@uppercutwood: I got to do some interesting stuff over the holidays, I used a laser engraver on cherry. Smelled and looked great.#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood you should post on the laser engraving on wood sometime #woodchat


@uppercutwood: I also got the new Bosch Router (this one) #woodchat

@kweinert: @MansFineFurn Glad I could help. It's been a while, but I used them for a project once. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood I will be posting photos and video of the laser engraving soon. I used a "makerspace" laser for $1 per minute #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sharpendwood #woodchat any photos of the project that incorporated tin?


@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood what did you engrave? a sign? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: We're halfway through woodchat. I'd love ideas for future topics or areas for improvement. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood Arrow Of Light award plaques for a local Boy Scout Troop. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood well worth the $1 per minute #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Whats the status of G+ it sounds like Al is done with the twitter woodchat #woodchat

@sharpendwood: Pic of one of the tin panels. One of my 1st ww projects. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Nearly forgot #woodchat tonight... How's everyone this evening?

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood I am in the process of rebuilding a lasercutter. Here is a link. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I don't know the status of G+ chat, @Tumblewood is driving it and we need to discuss. If it works, I'm in! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson Last time we tried G+ it didn't work well #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sharpendwood that looks awesome, and labor intensive! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood Trophy shops were a lot more expensive than $1 per minute #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Where do you find the money for these toys :) #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood @benjamenjohnson we gave up on g+ too quickly #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood I could imagine them being more expensive #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood mentioned yesterday, If G+works & all can participate as equals, I'm sold too, not with limited participation (video #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood It's improving everyday, I'm sure we'll be back to G+ #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @asliceofwood @uppercutwood "we gave up on g+ too quickly" it just wasn't clear on what we should have been doing. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WVWoodshed the new Bosch is epically awesome, except for the proprietary template bushing stuff. they have a PC adapter though. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: It would be great if G+ works out for #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Wow where were makerspaces 15 years ago when I was trying to engrave a hardened steel sword? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @benjamenjohnson haha yeah, everyone was chatting everywhere that night #woodchat

@sharpendwood: @uppercutwood Thanks! It was a lot of pounding, but kinda fun :) #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sharpendwood I need to try that again. I remember doing a project like that in grade school. Simple but cool#woodchat

@asliceofwood: @WVWoodshed are there apply symbols on your chisels on your blog? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: We have this at work to use for free, but they need to safety train you first and I haven't been trained yet #woodchat


@WVWoodshed: Man I hope #woodchat is fading out! Participation is way down tonight, huh!!!

@uppercutwood: @WVWoodshed I hope it's NOT fading out :) #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @wvwoodshed seems that way. Kind of quiet tonight.n #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WVWoodshed to make sure it doesn't fade, what topics would you like covered? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @WVWoodshed it isn't fading could be transmission issues with the different connection software #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood What are you waiting for? Or is the training schedule out of your hands. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs I need to be better at reminding people during the day, and I'm behind on posting transcripts.#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson training schedule is out of my hands. they wait for enough people, then they hold a session#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood did we cover all of the topics from the 'topics' list already? If not, lets work down the list. (send all the link) #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @WVWoodshed It's been a strange week, for me at least, maybe it's something about this time of year. Or it could be the weather #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Good idea, please hold #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood the transcripts have been posted (almost) religiously on G+ Woodchat (though I have had to send it to Vic alot) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: If you have topics you'd like covered please vote here #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I'm still recovering from the holidays #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: i got a new topic: worst woodworking injuries + lessons learned #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @MansFineFurn What site are you looking at with the list? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I have been crazy busy at work and the goofy weather is playing tricks on my sinuses It's been hard for me to make shop time or #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn That's right, and we also want them posted on Modern Woodworker Association #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs: RT @uppercutwood: If you have topics youd like covered please vote here

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn add it to the list, it might be a good reminder for Safety Week #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Well let's just hope it's the time of year or whatever! @benjamenjohnson #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood How about which light and dark woods play well together. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I'm always looking for new woods to work with. I just used some camaru. it fuzzes alot when machined and is hard on chisels #woodchat

@uppercutwood: The woodchat owners are going to hangout and talk about next steps to push woodchat forward #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs Like that one. Combinations of woods/materials that complement #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Good question. I like maple and walnut. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: A discussion on people's experiences with exotics - what to look for and look out for #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson Where is Camaru from? Tell us about it! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Can someone add that to the list? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I do too, made a chessboard like that long ago #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson I have some Walnut waiting to be used. Now to get some more Maple.n #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood I suggest a topic be chosen early and oft repeated during the week. may get people thinking and lining up links #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Perhaps I can get Shannon Rogers of @mcilvainlumber to host a discussion about woods #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @MansFineFurn good idea Nick. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Oops been spelling it wrong #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Good idea, and post the topic to the G+ page, and people can add their links there actually#woodchat

@woodshaver101: Hi guys Im laten #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood that would be interesting #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: #woodchat I think red oak and purpleheart look good even though the pourousity of the grain is different!



@BillGriggs: @woodshaver101 Good evening. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 Howdy! it's been slow, but good. Almost done for the night. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood how, in comments? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn #woodchat there is an other for the poll so you can write in a topic

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood no, but out into the summer sun, yes #woodchat

@kweinert: A place to check for some exotics, some things like burl is new(ish) site, folks also sell wood.#woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood That sounds like a bad joke.n #woodchat


@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Umm I've never taken myself to a tanning booth... ;-) #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood The best part was the smell when it was cut. Can't describe it but it was sweet #woodchat

@woodshaver101: i see were talkin wood ,i like maple or ash mixed with a darker wood like walnut or sabalen #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @MansFineFurn thanks, Nick. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Do I need special access to the #woodchat G+ site and how do I get added to the circle?

@uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy And I don't mean a spray tan booth like jersey shore fistpumps #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood I don't do that either ROFL #woodchat

@kweinert: @uppercutwood Fine Woodworking did an article earlier this year: #woodchat

@kweinert: @kweinert well, last year :) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn What finish is on the bed, and how'd you apply it? #woodchat


@WoodworkGuy: Well, I never thought of tanning/aging Cherry. Another learning from this group! #woodchat


@BillGriggs: @MansFineFurn That is a nice Shaker style bed you made. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy that's an easy way to "stain" cherry dark #woodchat

@woodshaver101: paxton lumber is a good source to get wood,in the midwest #woodchat

@theboisshop: Is there a fine for being tardy to #woodchat?

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood HVLP Hydrocote Resisthane and clear Briwax. some BLO and wax on the wedges #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @theboisshop one MILLION dollars #woodchat

@kweinert: I've done a few mixed pens: yellowheart/walnut, maple/walnut, chechen/maple. Tried a celtic knot, maple/walnut but not quite right #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 do they ship? Website? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop how's the curvy step stool coming? #woodchat

@kweinert: @woodshaver101 There's one here in Denver as well. #woodchat


@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Never heard of Hydrocote Reisthane, what is it? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood yes and they have several locations #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke do you know the status of the G+ woodchat solution? Do we have an upgraded hangout or chat that would work? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn email me the transcript (or a link) and I'll be happy to post #woodchat transcripts on the MWA site.

@kweinert: @uppercutwood (Paxton Wood) never tried shipping, just drive a few miles :) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke @MansFineFurn can they get copied from Vic's site or mine? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood waterborne pre-cat lacquer from Hood Finishes Gonna try some General Finishes on next project #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @kweinert yes they pick up a used moulder in milwaukee and shiped it to there denver local #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @kweinert I wonder how Aspin and Walnut would work together. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Well that finish looks awesome, thanks for the link. Would like to try Water Borne Lacquer.#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DyamiPlotke @uppercutwood If I have it all recorded, I think I can post it directly #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs Aspen is REALLY soft #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs isn't aspen soft? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @WVWoodshed the #woodchat G+ is a corporate site. You must circle it before it can circle you.

@woodshaver101: @BillGriggs interesting combination #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs I bet they'd look good, but aspen is soooo soft. #woodchat

@kweinert: @BillGriggs Depends on what you're doing with it. Aspen much softer, I'd worry about dust contamination, walnut->aspen #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @bmorewoodwork drink and sand? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @kweinert walnut dust getting in big Aspen pores? #woodchat


@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood just watch what you put it over (read my bad experience: great over raw wood or waterbased #woodchat


@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood howdy, Matt. Sorry I've been in and out. I've been running errands during #woodchat Pinewood Derby is Friday. Lots to do.

@MansFineFurn: @DyamiPlotke we need a 'guide' to woodchatting with G+, even I have trouble with it (not that I'm a G+ guru...)#woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @theboisshop sorry Rob, but you must turn in that saw you allegedly won. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs If you're doing inlay, holly on walnut is a classic #woodchat

@kweinert: @uppercutwood pores not that big, but it fuzzes and does seem to have a lot of little crevasses. #woodchat

@theboisshop: RT @MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs If you're doing inlay, holly on walnut is a classic #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn oh man that sounds not fun. I've heard of similar problems when people screw up stain with topcoat. #woodchat


@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn When we migrate to G+, we'll definately have a user guide #woodchat

@woodshaver101: any one work with flat cut sapale #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: I mixed rough cedar with Ambrosia maple. Pictures on my Lumberjocks page. I don't know how to link it here.#woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood G+ hangouts w/ extras accept more folk, screen sharing & recording (though I couldn't get it to record when i tried) #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood @MansFineFurn I suppose I can just copy. I'll try w/ tonight's transcript. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn that post is a great learning tool, thanks for sharing your pain with finishing, it'll help me down the road! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @WVWoodshed Take care Stephen #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DyamiPlotke I will, if I have the whole transcript #woodchat


@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Have a good one Matt! #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood goodnight, Matt. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I'm heading out as well. Take care all #woodchat

@kweinert: I've used aspen with darker wood, only as components, not integral. Test example: #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Goodnight, all. Happy #woodchat


@BillGriggs: @kweinert Tea Candle holder. Is that Cherry?n #woodchat

@bmorewoodwork: Cheers! Happy #woodchat
