BUYING MACHINE TOOLS - ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

04-23-2013 10:13 AM by stefang | 15 comments »

NOT A REVIEWA couple of years ago I bought this nice disk sander with the trademark ‘Woodfast’. This was once a venerable Australian brand of quality machinery with a full range of woodworking equipment. The Chinese bought the name and it is now a much lesser quality, although not of the worst sort. This looked like a great machine to me. It ran smoothly had enough power, was equipped with a brake, etc. The one thing I forgot to check out was how changing sanding disks was done. T...

Hide Glue #4: Easy clean up with Old Brown Glue, no damage to finish

06-17-2013 06:39 PM by Patricelejeune | 2 comments »

Many peoples ask us how easy it is to clean up Old Brown Glue. One of the things I really love about hot hide glue and liquid hide glue, is it cleans up easily AND without damaging the finish Here is a video on repairing antiques and conserving the finish It does also work on more fragile finishes. On the post regarding our treasure box i explain that often in french furniture, with french polish finish, the pieces are finished before glueing, there fore all the corners and...

Trotters Ridge Entrance Signs #2: Signs are sandblasted and background color is applied

07-24-2013 11:55 PM by Luke | 1 comment »

This is what the signs look like after sand blasting with the grain frame. Then the green background color is sprayed on after several coats of primer. It takes on a grained look like wood. Next step is the lettering colors and borders. Thanks for looking.

Workbench Build #37: Finishing up the Toolwell... All downhill from here.. I think..

08-10-2013 09:34 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

We last ended with the second dovetail and the end caps mortised for the tool well ends. After a week of no progress in the shop I finally had some time this weekend to get something done. To start I needed to cut the remaining dovetails so I would know where the dados should stop to not be seen on the out side of the bench. I am sooooo glad this is over with. I would love to say I got better with each one but I really didn’t. I did learn something new on each one but the mista...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1128: Writing Our Own Story

09-11-2013 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I missed posting yesterday because I had an early dental appointment and had to get moving really early. My appointment was for 8am and when I got to the office, I was told they started at 7:30. That was great for a girl like me. Coming from Chicago where many businesses are open 24 hours, it was quite a change being here in rural Nova Scotia where many places don’t open until 9 or 10 and they close early as well. Even most of the restaurants are only open until 7pm (including weekends...

The Shows #20: Harvest Festival wrap up

09-29-2013 01:35 AM by Monte Pittman | 12 comments »

Although not a massive day, today was a very pleasant surprise. As usual the mugs and boxes did well. Also sold some shelves and a trunk. I did this show with my mother mainly because she wanted to. I didn’t expect to sell much. For a one day show it was great. I would definitely do it again next year. The shows have been slower this year than last year. Only doing a couple select holiday shows, so my next big show is the end of January. Good luck to all in your holiday shows.

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #14: Holy Cow, what fun!

10-24-2013 06:04 PM by Ethan Harris | 5 comments »

Hey everyone! It has been crazy! I’ve launched my own website, expanded products, paid my taxes and continue to make Spud Woodworks a real opportunity for myself and my family. I did hit a rut for awhile, it was difficult going day in and day out just sitting there making the same thing over again. But it dawned on me, I can always find opportunity to improve a product, grow its customer base, and make more varied styles and editions. Over all its been exciting. Really exciting! A...
