Sunday morning dawned into a beautiful day… a little cloud but that was good too… No rain… and not too hot… Got up before the sparrows and having loaded a few LLs and a table the night before was ready as soon as the coffee was made and I had finished showering and dressing… A quick set up and stood by for the onslaught… Ken very courteously let me have the middle table but did stick his butcher block table in the very front… There was a lot ...
If you have been watching any of the news about this , you should have some of a opinion. I look back at the days growing up and I wish that my parents had give me more, Especially when it come to school, I did as little as I had to , just to get through school ,, and over the years I regret that I didn’t do better, but now it’s kind of late at 55 years young. I had the discipline to stay out of trouble and have never be in any encounter with the law, I’m self employed for ...
I have toyed with an idea for some time now and was wanting some feedback on this idea. I’m sure it’s not original but haven’t seen one either. My idea is to have a consignment shop for woodworkers to sell their work.It would be an outlet for woodworkers to sell items for a percentage of the sale. This would be a store where woodworkers could drop of their projects and have them sold. Tell me your thoughts on this?
I spent most of the day yesterday cutting out the two new candle trays. I can honestly say that it was quite a pleasure to do so. Many times people say that they wouldn’t want to do woodworking for a living because it will take the fun out of it. I can see their point, but for myself, it is an extra bonus to be able to get paid for doing something that you absolutely love to do. I suppose that is why I am here. :) There are so many different aspects to the business of woodworking t...
I awoke this morning to another blanket of snow. Last night when we went for our walk, it was nearly all melted and the pavement was actually clear. We were just saying how warm it was outside. It is truly beautiful outside, with about two to three fresh inches on snow on the ground. It looks so clean and pretty. Lately we have been taking our walks at night. I don’t know exactly why, but we started this a few weeks ago and have stuck to it ever since. We don’t go behind ou...
I have been following a few blogs Here on Lumberjocks for quite a while now … these blogs are pertaining to the Craft Markets and those who attend..some are real veterans like closetguy and have many stories to tell…others like myself very much newbies….[I suggest you take the time and read his blog if you are interested in doing the market scene….] Last weekend I was at our local markets chatting with my good mate Ken… from Ken's Krafts Wedding Wishing Wells...
Had a phone call from a bloke I met last May at the Timber and Working with Wood Show.. seems he had two panels that were glued up from some 290 mm wide stock… Problem was… stock was too thick and after glueing up into 560 mm by 560 mm panels… how do you dress this down to the right thickness.. Ah you say… I know, I know.. Pick me.. Torque Workcentre to the rescue. Secure the two panels to the table … Insert the 55 mm surfacing head.. into the rout...
I appreciate very much the responses yesterday regarding questions that would be of interest to someone new at scroll sawing. The answers and conversations proved very helpful in allowing me to see what a new person would want to know. These questions are very helpful in preparing for the class and will give me a good starting point and open some pertinent dialogue with those attending. I spoke with Jeannie yesterday, who is my friend who initially petitioned for me to come and speak at ...
No one is more aware of how quickly time passes than I am. It seems as if it was only a couple of weeks ago that we were at the car show on a wonderful road trip in the ninety degree weather. Yesterday though, we had snow throughout the day, with huge, fluffy flakes falling on the six inches that had already arrived during the night. Although winter is in full swing, I know that spring is just around the corner and before long the snow will be gone and warmer weather will be here. So w...
Yesterday I spent the day “putzing around”. It isn’t often that I can say that. I did a lot of fine tuning and mundane cleaning and I even made a pot of soup but I didn’t really even feel like doing much at all. Oh well, it was Sunday and I think we all have those days once in a while. It was good to have the house back in order. I wound up sorting through the one closet that was yet left untouched by the massive organization – the front coat closet and ...
