Flea Market Find 2

03-09-2011 10:57 PM by joseff | 10 comments »

It’s been a while since I found anything of interest at the local saturday flea market. Although every trip is somewhat exciting for me, since I bought the Millers Falls drill a few months ago. I am still amazed at the thought of, and of actually, using a tool that is half a century older than I am. Around two weeks ago we decided to visit again just to look around. Me and my girlfriend were chatting about the things she bought when I saw a fine looking knob jutting out from a pil...

Well it’s time to once again reveal my ignorance about ancient bucket making. Today I went out to the shop armed with some new knowledge about splitting willow branches, thanks to a link on willow splitting posted to me by Debbie. I managed to almost perfectly split a willow branch with the new found info. If at first you don’t succeed…....... In spite of this new found skill I still had mishaps that prevented me from making a good binding, but…..I did learn how to...

The Slowest Farm Shop #8: 2011 plans...

03-09-2011 05:40 PM by Will Mego | 2 comments »

Well, it’s been a painful blur of a winter, and spring is pretty much fixin’ to spring (maybe) here in northern Illinois, so it’s time to plan out all those projects I haven’t been able to do all winter: So here’s the usual list that I’d LIKE to get to…but money and time are always bigger factors than my desire. Given my druthers, I’d complete MORE than this list…but that caveat aside, here’s my list for 2011: My massive all-weather outdoor Roubo Workbench. 1...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #7: Stanley Bailey #3 complete restore w before & after pics. I am on a role!

03-09-2011 05:38 PM by Dan | 7 comments »

Just the other day I posted a blog on the completed restoration of my Stanley #6. Well last night I finished up my Stanley #3 and took some final after pictures for this blog. I have been working on this plane for months. As with a lot of my planes I got this one off of ebay. The plane was in rough shape as you can see in the photos. All the pieces were heavily rusted, the rear handle was broke at the top and the top of the frog was broken off. You can see in the before pictures that the l...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #279: Planning is Part of the Fun!

03-09-2011 02:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, I am happy to report that I am finished compiling the information that I need to get to my accountant to do my taxes. It really wasn’t that bad, because I had all the things in one place. Now next year I need to go a step better and do monthly reports to keep on top of everything. It shouldn’t be very difficult because I really am what you call a ‘small business’ and I don’t have that much activity. With the new site, tracking sales is not difficult at ...

basic financial planning #7: A place for everything

03-09-2011 10:08 AM by BigTiny | 10 comments »

Good evening group.Today we look into record keeping among other things. First and foremost, you must have a secure place to keep your records. A good filing cabinet is a great start. It should be a minimum of three drawers and four is better. Why not build one? They’re an easy build. I once did one with nothing but a Skill saw and a router. MDF covered in plastic wood grained laminate. Still have it some 29 years later and it still serves its purpose.. Organize your files!...
