Here’s a few examples and ideas! _”Thus far on The Pro Shop, we’ve emphasized “leveraging” your marketing efforts: getting the broadest visibility and reach for the amount of resources (both time and money), that you spend on marketing. We’ve looked at publicizing your business and the unique value of your hand...
Yesterday I recieved my chuck in the mail and of course I ran to the shop to use it. Had a few jobs to do with that I couldn’t do with out a chuck. Boy does having a chuck make turning a lot easier. this morning I didn’t even put on shoes and socks. Pants shirt and slippers, spent the whole day in front of the lathe, made a lot of sawdust and enjoyed every minute of it. will let you know how well it performed but so far I love it.
This chair really is big. Very wide. 24+inches wide in fact. .Here’s me sitting on it. Note, I’m a big guy and the chair is still big. I think two of my littlest kids could sit in one of these. Comfy big. In fact, the chair is so wide it makes me wonder. Standard cushions are 22” square. Does that mean I need to get bigger cushion materials?
If you wonder why I am putting this unit on a dedicated it’s because this thing is heavy. Really heavy. In fact, I’m s bit worried.

It is written; this is the internet; which makes it fact:)... ...
As you may know if you have been following this blog I have been struggling with the heat this year in the can. For some reason this year heat has just been a real problem. In the past, it was not that bad and with both doors open I did not always need a fan to work comfortably. This year though it seems that it has not been as windy as usual and the can has been been getting quite hot even with both doors open and a fan running. Some days lately it has been so bad I have resorted to working ...
I have these wonderful slabs of dogwood, but i want to use some in outdoor benches. Is there anything i can use (indoors or out) that will keep the nice pink without neutralizing it or darkening the whole piece?
Part of the reason that I like my job so much is that there are so many different aspects involved in the day to day activity of it, it never seems mundane or boring. Sure, it would be great if I could just scroll saw all the time and not have to worry about anything else, but I think that after a while, even that would lose its luster and not be much fun.
