This was a project that I posted on youtube a while back which I had a lot of fun doing do I decided to share on LJ. Enjoy, Let me know if you have any questions.
Seen this on youtube, funny stuff. “All too typical discussion between a clueless guy with a walnut yard tree and a man who runs a sawmill” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agcLlKcXp40
Todays a good day, I while ago I applied to youtube for a partnership, I had been waiting for a long time by now. The day after I joined Lumber Jocks I was accepted… YAY! I’m not superstious in any way but Lumber jocks seems to be having a good effect on my woodwork and everything else to do with it. For those who havn’t check out my channel it is: http://www.youtube.com/user/TeenWoodworker On top of the good news about my partnership acceptence today I recie...
It is just after seven AM and already we have both printers humming away happily. For the past couple of days we have been busy printing out catalogs and patterns and other material to take with us for the show. Everything is going pretty smoothly, with one small exception, and we should be finished with the bulk of the printing today. We are having minor trouble with one of the ink systems, as we have after a bit of playing around figured out that we must have used an older bottle of in...
Well, I am happy to report that I am finished compiling the information that I need to get to my accountant to do my taxes. It really wasn’t that bad, because I had all the things in one place. Now next year I need to go a step better and do monthly reports to keep on top of everything. It shouldn’t be very difficult because I really am what you call a ‘small business’ and I don’t have that much activity. With the new site, tracking sales is not difficult at ...
Today’s post will probably be a bit shorter than usual. It certainly isn’t very exciting. I spent pretty much the entire day yesterday working on my business and getting everything ready for my accountant. Actually it isn’t as bad as it seems. Just time consuming. I do have everything in one place, and it is only a matter of me categorizing everything and getting the figures in the right place. It is more sorting than anything. As I looked in my accordion folder wh...
Some say that necessity is the mother of invention. I tend to agree. Need is a great motivator. Needing something has a way of pushing us to think outside the box and perhaps be a little more innovative than we would normally be. Especially if we have limited resources. Many of you know that I live in a fairly small place. I don’t have a real shop, per se, but rather do most of my own work in my kitchen and living area. My bedroom doubles as a storage room for most of my beauti...
A guest on the show Dale Meiners shows us how to achieve a high gloss clear coated finish. This is a process and a rather lengthy one too.
I just uploaded my new website and thought you all might want to look at it. www.kregscustomcarpentry.com
I think that sometimes the most exciting thing about an upcoming event is the anticipation you feel while making plans. As the time comes closer for me to leave on my trip, I find this to be the case. As the pieces fall into place, I find myself becoming more an more excited about the many things that I will do and people that I will be able to see. I am not feeling as nervous as I thought that I would be by now. There was a time in the beginning of the planning phase where I was wonder...
