03-10-2011 05:36 AM by ocwoodworker | 18 comments »

I just came into the house with one of those bubble thoughts you see in cartoons that have only smoking scribble inside it. I just engineered my self into a proverbial corner with my 95% completed project. It was about halfway through my shower when I got my epiphany. I have a solution!

Marketing your wodworking

03-01-2011 01:49 AM by ScottMorrison | 1 comment »
