Why the blog name, "The Crooked Nail"?
Answer: Just because. Really it was, what I thought, the coolest name that I could come up with and that was still available to be used as a blog title. After I thought about it for a while, I thought that the title was a good one and decsribed my projects very accurately.
I usually make at least one mistake during the process and usually have at least one head scratcher in there too. I usually measure twice and end up cutting twice. And sometimes there is a mstake that turns out to be a blessing in disguise and ends up working out better than the original plan or idea.
So all that being said, I think that "The Crooked Nail" is a good description of the process of woodworking and projects that I do. The nice part about a crooked nail is that I can always pull it out and go at it again with a new one that will get into some good wood, nice and straight!
