selling product

Hi allI’m new to the site and woodworking but I have a question if anyone could provide some direction. I have discovered a love and dare I say talent for woodworking.I have made a good amount of product that everyone says I should sell. The problem is that I work full time so I cannot do the show scene(plus im not a sales person),i also feel no time for ebay and are websites a good way to go? wouldn’t I just be lost in the sea of other websites?I guess my question is are there pe...

Wood Lottery: Jarrah?

12-03-2011 10:22 PM by Brian Shourd | 1 comment »

I was out at the local hardwood dealer picking up some purpleheart, when I saw this sticking out of a bin. It’s very rough sawn (actually, it almost looks like it came off of a pallet somewhere), and someone had written “Jarrah? $1” on it. Naturally, I had to try it. It’s like one of those scratch-off lottery tickets – you might be wasting a dollar, but you could win as much as two or even five dollars! A little time with a jack plane reveals: We...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #558: Three Down and One To Go!

12-20-2011 01:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday I finished the third piece of the fence characters for Ellen’s fence project. For some of you who didn’t get a chance to read, I will refresh you. Ellen and Bernie are what I call my “Canadian parents.” Bernie has been a friend of mine since I came to Canada in 2004 and they have kind of adopted me. From the time I met him, Bernie offered me the key to his shop which has a full line of tools. Since I have rented small places since I have been living he...

Pine root. Making use of a wasted material in a novel item.

01-14-2012 09:38 AM by Sman | 3 comments »

So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small dish from a nice swirly root clump I noticed the fine intricate grain and subtle orange translucence. So I made several small lampshade prototypes. Pitch bled out of the wood with warmer bulbs obviously. But I am about to start a project involv...

First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw #7: Mobile base is painted and finished

03-14-2012 11:25 AM by psient | 2 comments »

The mobile base has been painted and cured. I neglected to post a pix of the base prior to painting as I had no time. Here is the photo. Today after installing the casters, I’ll hoist the saw onto the base for a test fit. If all is well I’ll be on to assembling the saw-proper— extension wings, fence rails, switch wiring, cord and the side extension table. Next might be designing a mobile base for the side extension table. I don’t like the idea of a fixed ext...

router table #1: router table 90% complete

03-25-2012 06:24 PM by jpatte | 0 comments »

The purpose of this entry is to talk about the router table that I have been building. I don’t know how long I’ve been working on it but since I’ve only been able to work on it in my free time it has taken longer than I wanted. I started out with a base cabinet that I got from a kitchen remodel that I was working on. I built a simple mobile base out of 2×4s and casters that I got at a local big box store. I wrapped this in 1/4” mdf to make it look cleaner. I ...

Searching for time in the shop

04-21-2012 08:07 PM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building. I stained everything this week as well as putting on the coat of glaze and then a coat of wipe on poly. Today I put about four hour into assembling the head and foot boards...
