Wood Gear Clock

1475 days ago by HighRockWoodworking | 10 comments »

I have always had a fascination with how things work. As a kid I drove my parents’ crazy taking things apart but it was part of learning. Even today I will look at something a wonder how it was made or how it works. For most things I believe that if someone else can do it then so can I, now I am not saying that I am smarter than anyone else, I believe for the most part that all of us can figure most things out if we try.

First time using sketchup to design a project...

1499 days ago by Tim Dahn | 8 comments »

Adventures in Starting a New business #1: Before the beginning

1516 days ago by TwistedRedneck | 2 comments »

Well, been thinking about it and now I think it is time to take that first step. Pimping woodworking skills out that is. I have had experience owning and running my own business as a Truck Driver and my parents have experience owning and operating a multi county Ambulance service so I think I have the knowledge that is needed to start a new venture like this.
