Festool Meets A “Mechanic”

So, I’ve been flirting with this idea for a while now and essentially, here’s how it went down:

My wife has been wanting some built-in cabinets in our dining room and a couple of months ago, we started fielding quotes. They were outrageous… Like, REALLY outrageous. So outrageous, that I began to ponder the idea of building them myself. The only problem (besides my complete lack of knowledge and experience working with wood) was that my shop simply wasn’t outfitted to work with wood.

A Vintage Styled Shop Calendar

A lot of you guys are H.A.M.B. transplants… But for those of you that aren’t, I wanted to fill you in on something you might dig. Every year we do a calendar featuring the photography of the H.A.M.B.. This year, we just didn’t have the bandwidth to make it happen, so we did something a little more simple. We did a vintage styled shop calendar based off a 1940’s Proto design complete with Jeff Norwell penned pinup and tear-away sheets for the months of the year. I know there are a lot of vintage tool guys here and I thought this might be right up your alley…

A Few Changes… Just For You…

Hey fellas, you might notice a few changes here and there on The Garage Journal. Namely, we’ve redone the classifieds a bit. In order to make sure ads get their fair share on the top of the forum, we’ve taken away the ability for users to reply to the ads themselves. The original poster can still reply to bump their ads and make additions, but that’s where it stops. A special thanks to all of you guys that provided feedback. I really appreciate it.

In other news, we’ve also added a new HOT DEALS section to the site. Before, we just had a dedicated thread. Now, you can check out the forum dedicated to great deals and coupon codes here.

As always, thanks for everything fellas… Carry on!
