I was asked by MsDebbie if I would like to host an online scroll saw class here on...

basic financial planning #1: Financial planning basics for the woodworking pro.

02-28-2011 08:16 AM by BigTiny | 8 comments »

I’ve volunteered to do a few blogs on the financial planning of going pro, so here comes the first installment. First and foremost, you can’t plan where you’re going if you don’t know where you are. You have to sit down and do a complete list of your financial picture, sort of a “monetary snap shot” of yourself. List every debt you have, from the mortgage to the ten bucks you borrowed from a buddy because you were short at lunch. Make sure it is as ...

Words of Wisdom For Woodworkers

02-04-2011 10:23 PM by Greg..the Cajun Wood Artist | 15 comments »

� Do not argue with an idiot; he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. � Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car. � The last thing I want to do is hurt you; But it’s still on the list. � Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. � If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. � We never really grow up, we only lea...

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Crafts Shows R Us #1: Part 1

10-28-2008 04:21 AM by closetguy | 6 comments »

I keep getting a lot of private messages from Lumberjocks asking questions about my boards and selling at shows so I decided to start talking about my experiences this year and maybe it will help those who want start the show circuit or are trying to decide if it’s for them. I consider myself a newbie at it since I just started this year and I know there are a lot of jocks that have been doing shows for years, so I don’t intend to write a “how to” guide, but document my journey into this car...

Online R Us #1: Pack Them In

04-09-2011 12:47 AM by closetguy | 7 comments »

What a great business! I get to spend time in my shop making widgets while listening to Led Zeppelin. When done, I take pictures, post them on a web site, and sit back and watch the money pour in. Yep, it should to be that simple. The reality is that selling online is a little more challenging than one would think.

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia.
