Default The Man Issue

In the states, there is a new television show called "Portlandia". The show features the hippest of the hip fellows of Portland, Oregon, where a unique culture has taken root (strongly there, but equally strong in other places). Anyway, here's a funny clip from the show about woodworking and the mystique that allegedly surrounds it.

One of those 'reality' shows, I guess, because I totally missed the funny part.

Love it. They must have been looking over my fence.

Same here.

+3 Thanks for posting the clip though. At least I know not to waste time watching that show!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

One Question! Can you purchase plans for projects?

I think my wife would really love one of those awesome vanity boxes.

We could use a new set chairs for our dinning table to replace those old oak chairs we now have. I wonder if he has plans to design arm chairs to match.

It would also be nice to have several of the great jacket racks when you have company over during the holidays, and they could take them home as a cherished gift.

I have been looking everywhere for a chair I built only to see it used as a prop on youtube...

How did they get into my garage? Oh btw I hadn't even done a dry assembly on the tissue holder so I think it is a bit unfair to judge...
