Anyone who's gonna be in Slab City for the jambo and is interested I'll go through the basics of framing with someone and provide basic tools. Hammer, belt, so on. Stuff that's redundant to me. I can't make you a master carpenter but it might help you get some work down the line in construction if you know how to do basic framing and wall hanging. I'm sure someone in the Slabs could use whatever we cobble together too. Just a thought. I'll post info when I actually arrive in September.

Hey I'm going to move this down to the STP Jamboree subforum - I think this is awesome - kind of a workshop.

sounds good man, i'm sure the library could use the help/knowledge for building a new wing onto the building or something. either way i'd check out what you want to teach just out of curiosity.

This sort of is off topic, but still relevant in a way... This reminds me of a youtube video I watched a while back. A group of friends, and fellow squatters were all living on a plot of rural land together.... A couple in a van, a guy in a travel trailer, there was a mobile home, and they were all building a tree house together friends to crash in... It looked fun, legit, and TOTALLY AWESOME!

I'm into this. I have some experience in conventional construction, more interior/remodel stuff. But I'd be down to help with a building project and I have my own basic tools

If you've got extra tools, I could definitely use a set, and I'm more than willing to trade for, or buy 'em off you, if you're willing to let 'em go for cheap.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
