The Bigfoot Products Super Sander is a laser cut sanding disk. What makes this sanding disk unique is that it has notches cut in the disk to allow you to see through the disk. This gives better control of your sanding. I have seen these disks before but never had an opportunity to try one out until now. Bigfoot products was kind enough to send me one to test. The Standard Kit comes with two double sided disks. One side has a course grit and the other a medium grit. The kit includes everyt...
Well I’m having my first craft show today. Cross my fingers. I only found out 2 days ago about it. I saw the ad in one of the local papers, that they throw on the driveway.

And yes it was, but such a good title should not go to waste – he’s quite the recycling monk, mostly other people’s ideas. So I took it upon my self to patent, trademark, copyright, and claim it as my own. Let’s see those royalty checks just start rolling in – you do remember that you&...
Wow, was yesterday a busy one! There were so many details to attend to that the day just seemed to fly by. Today is another day that will be extremely full, as I have several tasks that I have to complete. But for the most part, the major things are done and the site update and new catalog are pretty much completed. (We want to proof read it just one more time!) I have to hand it to my partner Keith and give him lots of credit. He took most of last week redesigning and assembling the c...
