How to ensure no one is stealing your images or otherwise not crediting your work online

If anyone has copied any of your images that you’ve included on your projects or blog posts and posted them elsewhere, you can see it using this simple method. 1) Open up one of your project pages, and also open a tab running Google image search.

In The Shop #2: Shop Layout - Making do with a small/weird space

Wood IDs #15: African Blackwood and conservation

I picked up another box of 20 exotic wood turning blanks from Rockler. It’s been on a big sale for a long while now, and I had free shipping going, too. I have an idea for possibly turning it into some saleable items, and running the numbers, it was a very good deal. One of the woods it includes, of which I have now 4 1.5”×1.5”×12” pieces is African Blackwood.

04-15-2008 05:18 PM by MsDebbieP | 13 comments »

April 15, 2008 In March of this year I attended a wood show in Toronto and had the privilege of not only speaking with Rob Cosman but creating a ribbon of wood. Today I had the honour of interviewing Rob and learning about his woodworking history and plans for the future. The History Rob was born and raised into the woodworking world. His father, a shop teacher at the time of Rob’s birth, became a contractor when Rob was about two years of age. Rob’s earliest memory ...
