ScrollSaw Information and Resources #14: First Craft Show - It Was Fun

10-03-2011 02:51 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space.

Cheap Kitchen Table #2: Design for Legs of Cheap Kitchen Table

09-18-2011 04:24 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

Here’s the new leg design. The legs should cost less than $5 since they are only two of 2×4s. Joinery connecting the legs will be through tenons and the top will be joined to the legs with Kreg pocket screws.
