Or you could just buy one from Wilfer Mobile Sawmill made from Colorado Beetle-Killed Pine. Visit www.WilferMobileSawmill.com for more info and to get in touch with us!
My wife and I are expecting a new baby shortly, so our youngest child will be abandoning his toddler’s bed for a “big boy” bed. It’s only a twin mattress – but it’s pretty massive for a four year old. And quite the step up from his toddler’s bed. I’ve been slowly getting into woodworking for the past two years. Mostly I have been preparing myself for a project such as this; the majority of my builds have been jigs, a workbench, cutting gui...
Hello, again, So we’re getting ready for day 2 of the Woodexpo and day 1 was a great start. Everyone had a great time getting to know each other and picking brains about furniture.

Will it affect any future projects ie: cabinetry, sh...
Hey, everybody! I wanted to give you an update on the new show. We’ve been working ridiculously hard all summer and we’re just over half-way through filming this first season. The show will be airing on Public Television starting this October (check your local listings ;) ). GBH has put together the promotional “sizzle reel” (that’s an industry term…I think) to get everyone excited; I hope it works. It was cool for us to see, because it looks like a...
