I have been making progress on getting the word out! http://www.facebook.com/lunaticmazes http://www.lunaticmazes.com
I’m at the final stages of the build. The next step was to assemble the drawers. Nothing fancy . . . I just butted the pieces together with a little homemade glue and nailed them them with 23g pin nails. The button pull on the front are actually oak button plugs that I had left over from another project. I drilled a hole through the drawer front (after finding the center), drilled a hole in the back of the pull and then screwed it on from the back of the drawer front. DW then r...

I’m looking for a lumber mill in the greater Sacramento area with rough sawn lumber especially local species. Any ideas?
I built a cedar deck a couple seasons ago and I’ve had a stack of the off-cuts sitting in my shop waiting for it to be used. In my part of Canada it’s still a littler cold at this time of year but I’d like to get some of my vegetables started so I decided to build a “hot house”. Essentially it’s just a planter that sits directly in my garden with a piece of glass on top to form a mini-greenhouse. Once the weather is nice enough, I just remove the box and in...
So It took me a long time, but I finally have two together and finished! Here they are: I used a double splined miter corner. The splines are out of some extra cherry I had laying around. I glued up the frames with the one spline between my rails & stiles (is there a real term?). Then used my splining jig to do the side splines. Now that I have the process down I can buzz through the other 6 frames I have to make. Thanks for reading!
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of stopping by and visiting with fellow LJ, Grizzman. He lives in a small community about 1 1/2 hours from where I do and I was traveling close by on business. I was able to meet him and his wife. They gave me a tour of their home and then the shop. It was such a pleasure to meet them. Grizz lives in a small house/cabin that he and his sons built. Not only did Grizz build his own house, but he also built most of the furniture that they have in the house. T...
I have been asking questions and seeking information about Consignment store opportunities both in my BLOG and through other sources. As I described I ran across a Consignment store opportunity that seems like the perfect starting point. The basic details are. 1. You lease store shelf/floor, wall space by the foot. A three foot shelf will run me about $20 per month.2. I set the selling price of all items I have in the store. I also place price tags on all items per store instructions.3. Th...
So as I continue to look at the business side of doing scrollsaw work, that is earning money for your (my) work, I am collecting information from all available resources. Most of this information will be used, in the initial stages, to attend Craft and Woodworking shows. There seems to be so much information available that with a little research one should be well prepaired to attempt this type of operation. So here is the information I have found, so far. 1. Research the type of shows ava...
