Hope / Blanket Chest #2: Setup - Router Bits

2019 days ago by KasperShop | 0 comments »

This would be my frist attempt at making raised panel doors, so I was a bit nervous and unsure how this would go. Before the christmas break in 2008, I researched some router bits and found the Freud 97-108 bit set. I went over to Rockler and talked to them and they said this bit set is excellent! The person in line behind me said he has them and highly recommends them. I just love them. They make a very professional looking panel and I was soooo impressed at how easy making raised panel ...

Dust Collection #2: infiltration.... filter me this, filter me that

2019 days ago by PurpLev | 28 comments »

I ordered a 0.3 micron replacement filter from Wynn Environmental to replace my Jet DC1100 30 micron bag. Originally I was going to make a simple review for people to benefit from my experience with the new filter I got… but since it had gotten a bit more complicated, I figured this is blog-worthy, and the ‘regular’ review will follow once I experience more the performance of the filter. Disclaimer: I have had nothing but great experience from Wynn Environmental, from ...

Interior Trim and Moulding #1: Why we needed new trim

2020 days ago by KasperShop | 1 comment »

We live in an old house that has been added on to several times. It’s pretty uggggly on the outside, but I got a good deal on it long ago. The interior doors were those really cheap and cheesy hollow core doors. Well they add to go, and several of them have been recycled during other remodeling projects we recently did. The baseboards are missing! Well, those too were removed when we put in the hardwood floors, or decided that of the 4 rooms and 4 different styles, perhaps we s...

Hope / Blanket Chest #1: In The Beginning

2020 days ago by KasperShop | 0 comments »

I decided to make a hope chest for my wife for our 5 year anniversary since the theme of the anniversary is wood. She told me when we first started dating that she always wanted one. It took awhile to find a design I liked, and it was one from tooldad. He made a solid cedar raised panel blanket chest I loved the design!

No leads, no sales #2: Finding a needle in a haystack

2020 days ago by closetguy | 21 comments »

The road is littered with great woodworkers who crashed and burned. It is also littered with part time craftsmen who relegated themselves to weekend woodworker status because they tried to sell their works of art, to no avail, and decided there was no market. Of course, my favorite is the weak excuse that they can’t compete with “Rooms to Go” or Wal-Mart. I suspect that in most of these situations, they just could not figure out how to find the right customers. In this business, 90% of the...
