Swing With Wrist Grasshopper
Hi everyone it is March 18, 2009 I have been really busy lately working crazy hours, but I am back and I have a great carpentry tip for carpenters that swing there hammers frequently swing with your wrist and not your forearm let the wrist do all the work.

Get To The Point
Hi everyone happy Sunday April 5, 2009 as you can see Im a little rusty on adding carpentry tips everyday. Hey I'm not perfect but I will continue to strive to be, anyway here is another tip for all you carpenters out there.
Keep your pencils sharp.The finer your point the more accurate the cut will be. There were many times that I have cut wood for kitchen cabinets and other various projects and I cut the material wrong. It took some time to figure out what I did wrong then one day I realized that my point on my pencil was dull and the mark on the wood was to fat. So save yourself the time and waisted energy by sharpening your pencil when needed. Other wise your cut may no be as accurate as you would like for it to be. I hope you have a great day
Goodmorning everyone its April 9, 2009 I want to thank everyone for the encouragement on this carpentry webssite. I will continue to bring facts and knowledge about carpentry so thanks again for supporting me and I will do the same for you. Today I want to talk about business cards.

When work gets slow for me, and my change starts getting strange and my money starts looking funny besides praying, I start stepping up my efforts to meet and greet people. Once I am done saying Hi I pass out my carentry business card if I dont have it I will give them my phone number. This one particular way does not always work but it is known to be a very effective way for me
