As my bio states, I have a long history of framing construction and bridge building in the army. Most of my “woodworking” has been limited to remodeling my houses. With the addition of my father’s woodshop recently I am starting to discover the joys of woodworking outside of swinging a fram...

No leads, no sales #3: Who Are Our Customers?

We work hard to make our products perfect and we spend a lot of money on the best tools to ensure this perfection. So why should we not get appropriate compensation for our effort? Unfortunately, many people, though t...

I found out this morning that Antigua was selected by the American Association of Woodturners to be the “Photo of the Day” on their homepage. I am truly honored and humbled by their selection. I purchased a lathe and turned my first bowl in March of 2008. Who would have thought 10 months later I would be represented on AAW’s homepage? I would like to thank all of my fellow Lumberjocks who have provided encouragement and inspiration to me over the past several months.
