Last week I covered a marketing plan for my business well this week Wether you are professional or hobbyist you can produce a professional looking booth for under $300.00 here what worked for me. My friend who has been coaching me on marketing give me some pointers for my booth :) First thing he said was make sure every thing coordinates (I know this sounds a little Martha Stewartish) but it will pay off in the long run what most small businesses fail to realize is to make everything look th...
LJ’s, Today I read a little bit about woodworking in a magazine, but not enough to blog about. The blog was frank discussion about my abysmal day on the golf course. It has a happy ending though. http://extremelyaverage.com Brian
After posting Sandy I was hard pressed to post here again. I didn’t think posting a funny project among “friends” was such a big deal but apparently some people just can’t have it. But that’s the kind of forum I have enjoyed for almost 2 years, and now with so many people, can’t. Never the less, I started this project here and figure that I should, for my true buddies here, post the progress until the project is done. I will also post the Jewelry box He...
This is my first project. It started from wood salvaged from a small tree, walnut I believe, that a neighbor cut down.Just getting used to posting on here so sorry if the pics are weird. The scrap below the box is being used as my stain test It is still a work in progress and eventually will be used as a gift box for jewelry for my wife.Thanks for looking.

Working six days straight, other responsibilities, and a early heat wave conspired to leave me without time, energy, or drive to do any wood working for over a week!! I was feeling a little glum about that, so I finally squeezed in an hour or so yesterday… I feel better already!! Those of you who read this nonsense may recall this picture that I took of one of my Dad’s cribbing blocks sliced open:The sharp-eyed amongst you may have even noticed that these pieces are not book match...
Wow, there are a bazillion examples of bandsaw boxes on LumberJocks. I always thought they were complicated and had a hard time finding some really basic instruction. Well, here is a video for all of us bandsaw box newbies! The neat thing about bandsaw boxes is that if you give them away as gifts, people will be amazed and wonder about your woodworking prowess. They will think you are a woodworking god! Little will they know that you are a Mere Mortal and these boxes are totally easy to cr...
Late in the evening, I finally had a chance to correct an old turning that has laid on a shelf down in the shop for over a year. I think we can just consider this a “homework” project from jockmike2’s WoodTurning School and Coffee House. A couple years ago, a dear friend of mine wanted to help encourage my interest in lathing and picked up a harbor freight economy lathe and a set of their HSS chisels. I read some articles on turning and seen some really pretty pictures, b...
