HI everyone I had built piceses (furniture) here and their for people for ages but when my wife had our two childern i switched from being a gen. contractor-painting con. to the stay at home parent. So i needed something i could when ever i had time. I also went to an auction about that time and got alot of rough sawn lumber for next to nothing. That started it off ,Gage Western Furnishings . I build western-cowboy stuf that pops into my head or my take on other things i've seen. MY shop is a two car garage,whitch is way to small with lumber and tools. Most of the time their are only small alleys one front to back and a couple side to side , the one thing that make it useable is that everything is on wheels . For my work benches and tools i used two lockers and laided them down on thier sides then i put casters under them and a pic. of plywood on top this macks them @ 35 in. off the floor. My bigest project right now is building a bandsaw saw mill .

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Thanks for your kind words Brian. It was just a hobby when I was in high school a few years back. I have not been in a wood shop since completing this, though I am interested in picking it up again (partly why I joined the blog). I will be sure to update with new projects if and or when I do get back too it.

Best,

Hi. Thanks for the compliment on the mesquite slabs. I was wondering if I may pick your brain a bit? I built a bandsaw mill and have milled about 2000 bd ft and have about 2000 more to mill. How do you market your wood? I built this saw with hopes that it may help pay for my college tuition, also allowing me to work at my leisure around my class schedule. I’m trying to sell it locally, any advice? tips? Price points? You mentioned $20 a foot for a slab like that, and I agree. However, the public doesn’t seem to agree with me. hahaha. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated! I’m not a commercial outfit, just a one man show so to speak. Thanks again.
