Start your own woodworking business

04-27-2010 05:12 AM by Hisingwooddesign | 1 comment »

Check this out at www.hisingwooddesign.com I have been woodworking for about ten years as a hobby and recently have been thinking about the idea of starting my own woodworking business. What would you recommend? I have little business experience and have never owned a business of any kind. Do I need to go to college or take a course or some kind of training. Any advise would be appreciated. Well Donald that is a great question. As far as I’m concerned college courses and other higher ...

Prep for Finishing

04-25-2010 08:48 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 2 comments »

the years I had many different methods and idea about how to get a project ready for finishing. Like any other part of woodworking we all have our own way of getting to the finishing stage. Some smooth every part and piece with a drum sander, others use a jointer to clean the face of boards, and there are those that prefer hand tools and use a smoothing plane. The smoothing plane takes some practice and I do enjoy using hand tools on my projects but it is definitely a lot more work. No...

A Sticky Situation

04-24-2010 12:12 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 6 comments »

This video is an accompaniment to my column in the April 2009 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine. The article serves as a general review of common woodworking glues and when to use them. The video, however, focuses specifically on urea resin glues. These glues definitely have their advantages: low water content, gap-filling, long open time, and rigid glue lines just to name a few. But keep in mind the one big disadvantage: safety. These glues are pretty nasty and you might be best serve...

Dear Sweetie

04-19-2010 04:54 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 14 comments »

Saturday I came in from the shop and went upstairs to see what my wife was doing. She asked if the floor had dried downstairs as she had just mopped. When I went back down I realized that I had tracked sawdust all over her freshly mopped floor. This made me start thinking about what a woodworkers spouse has to go through on a daily basis and decided to write this letter as a spoof. Hope you enjoy. Dear sweetie,I just wanted to write you this letter to tell you that I love you unconditi...

Drafting Desk #2: Ready for Finish!

04-12-2010 10:12 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 0 comments »

I have finally finished the woodworking part of the drafting desk and am now ready for the finishing. I believe it turning out pretty well. I do have a funny story about putting the top together. I have said before that usually work on larger boards up at my fathers shop in North Carolina. I decided to make the top up there as it would be easier to make and my wife and I were driving up for the weekend from Atlanta anyway. I had all of the boards for the top jointed and the biscuits cu...
