Lincoln Logs

10-15-2014 09:15 PM by SPalm | 23 comments »

I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for the grandchildren. This is how I did it. There are a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable. I basically followed some of the same techniques as this post on the web but changed a few things and added roofs. Also I decided not to stain my sets as we kind of liked the clean pine look, and this is also completely non-toxic (and easier to make). I put to...

Well as my journey of processing wood for use in turning continues. I have been looking for a way to cut my own stuff using the bandsaw I have. it mostly works well enough but is not great at resawing. I came across Izzy Swan great channel on YouTube. I really liked the idea of using my table saw to mill logs, so I decided to tackle the project. The video for this can be found here. After completing the build.

Ultimate Sawhorse/Workbench Base Product

I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where I designed power tool attachments and accessories. Having the time to pursue projects that delight me instead of the owner of this company, I have decided to try to bring one of my best ideas yet to market. I would love to have your feedback on both the product and my approach to funding the project. I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where ...

Here’s one way to look at it and break it down so you may not feel so bad if you don’t get a sale every time you talk to a perspective customer. The first thing I would like to clear up right now is;...

06-02-2013 12:51 AM by huff | 21 comments »

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 4 Putting all the numbers together(Creating a shop labor rate) Shop labor rate; what is that and why would I want or need to have a shop labor rate? I’d like to take credit for coming up with this, but I learned this from another woodworker and you might have even heard of him; Marc Adams. He’s well known for his woodworking classes that his school teaches, but I was lucky enough to attend one of his seminars years ago and this was ...
