solid-door workbench #1: the top with solid-core doors

04-15-2012 12:47 PM by ChrisMc45 | 2 comments »

So I got a monster solid-WOOD-core door from when they tore down the bowling alley on Redstone Arsenal. I now wish I had scored a few more, but that is hindsight. (PLEASE don’t even mention the actual alleys, you can read about that kind of heartache or learning experience “here on LJ:” We had big solid-core doors on offices at work. Long-story-short, I found a distributor who discarded many doors per quarter and was happy to give them away, details “HERE“ ...

I have come to see a photograph as a good analogy for woodworking. my new year resolution is to make more pieces for sale as oppossed to doing mostly commition and ordered work. This “photo” theme is the reason for this new direction. The world seems to have sped up. I have poeple that complain about how long things take to complete. In connection to that, they can’t beleive the price of my service even though I have one of the lowest shop rates for 100 miles. A still ...

So you want to go pro #16: MORE WEB NEWS

04-22-2008 04:11 PM by odie | 2 comments »

I forgot to bring you all up to date. How you get noticed by Google and Yahoo is called “meta names”. These names are embedded in code in your web site on each page. Google and Yahoo! use crawlers to find and read these meta “tags”. They use them to pick where and in what categories your site is listed. I now have a program that lets me go in and change and add to my “meta names”. The problem, I found out, is that .mac doesn’t allow for this. There...

Making A Living At It! #1: Self Valuation

02-21-2014 04:03 PM by Stephen Mines | 2 comments »

“Any suggestions how to price or split the price of a turning?” Sure. I started woodworking (including woodturning) in 1971 and since 1987 my sole source of income has been woodturning. I’ve not had such a hard time determining prices, partly because, in the marketplace of simple woodturning, most ‘professional’ wood turning businesses are masters of fixing the prices: high, higher and outrageous I routinely charge 15 to 25 percent less than established compani...

TV Stand #4: Bottom and Shelf added

08-14-2011 02:05 AM by Angela | 2 comments »

I’m ready to add the bottom. As member GregD suggested I’m going to use Kreg pocket holes to secure the bottom and shelf in place. I cut some support boards at a height that would allow me to rest the bottom on them and then screw the bottom in place. I turned the work piece upside down to make it easier to screw it in place. Once the bottom was secured, I cut the support boards down to the height I needed for them to support the shelf. I then installed the shelf...

Bosch 1617EVSPK $160 at Amazon

05-16-2012 09:01 PM by BootsTripp | 2 comments »

I decided on the Bosch 1617EVS(PK), so kept my eyes peeled over the last week or so on the different retail sites, including craigslist and ebay for a possible used one. Amazon’s price for the “Bosch 1617EVSPK 12 Amp 2-1/4-Horsepower Plunge and Fixed Base Variable Speed Router Kit with 1/4-Inch and 1/2-Inch Collets” was $200 (pretty competitive based on my searches but not a huge bargain), but today I realized that Amazon is having a Bosch tool promotion until May 31st. ...
