After reading the book New traditional woodworkerI wanted to make a tool caddy.Wondering if you guys have any input on my little project?

And here I made some kind of handle using 1...

The Shows #24: The Fair Day 2

13 days ago by Monte Pittman | 19 comments »

Yes I am starting the blog a day late. I had a furniture delivery yesterday morning. Then rush home to load for the Central States Fair. 2 quick trips to get the basics here and setup last night. Last night was decent. My best sales are on concert and rodeo nights. Last night was motocross and tonight is the demolition derby. For whatever reason, those groups don’t spend money. First half of the booth is setup. The pictures are done by my 85 year old mother ...

Coffee table #2: A new normal...making lemonade

14 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 7 comments »

Life has thrown some pretty nasty hardballs at us this past year and a bit and my kids and I are starting to recover. We we’re sitting in our rec room (do people still call ‘em that? :-) and my daughter said it would be nice to have a coffee table in front of the TV. I’d been trying really hard to think of something we could all do together so I half jokingly said why don’t we build one. Lauren and Paul jumped on the idea. We got out the tape measure and use...

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally #6: Wrap up

20 days ago by Monte Pittman | 23 comments »

If you have been following along with this, you know that I didn’t get rich this past week. Of course going into a show you have delusions of everyone there leaving with one of your products and you go home with part of their money. Reality says that it is never that easy. I achieved covering the first cost level of the show. What it cost for the booth, expenses to put on the show, etc (this is where you include hired help). The second cost level is the cost of replacing the products t...

Morris style glider #1: Design and adapting to fit onto glider base

21 days ago by Orange008 | 1 comment »

My wife and I have recently found out we are expecting. Once I knew, I just had to make something for my wife and soon to be child. I know it is great to have a rocking chair in the baby’s room to rock them to sleep. I have always liked the look and movement of glider rockers. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to build one. I got the core plans from Wood magazine’s issue 112. I followed the plans for the chair pretty much exactly. Due to the low p...

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally #4: Halfway point

24 days ago by Monte Pittman | 15 comments »

As written by Snoopy, “It was a dark and stormy night”. Ok, I was having my best day of the rally and mother nature shut me down early with rain. What’s a little lightning to a few hundred thousand bikers. Day ended with this Leading to this Yes 1-1/2 hours to get across a 3 mile town. Day 4 was slightly better, but still not great. Day 5 was starting off with a bang, but cut short. At least I am seeing hope. Not quite at the break even point. Thought it wo...

26 days ago by Monte Pittman | 15 comments »

It was a better day, better crowd. Sales picked up some. Lots of talkers that they would be back later in the week. The morning started slow again, but I was prepared today.

Of course the bench I posted earlier today I also started another set of stools Besides the music and wild looking bikers, there were other events going on. There was Roller Derby today, There was Tractor races And of course a bike show ...
