How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

09-28-2012 07:04 PM by Tom Godfrey | 13 comments »

Want to review a book that I just purchased a few days ago. It’s called “Artisans & Money”, written by Joe Rollins. Some of you may remember me posting a review of his lathe cutting tools and as of today I have had 1146 views with 7 comments. Not sure if any of you ordered any of these tools but if you are starting out in wood turning or even if you have been turning for years I still feel this is one of the best investments you can make. Why? Great product at a lower price than other see...

Very good saw for a variety of uses

Very good saw for a variety of uses

05-15-2009 01:54 PM by jonah | 4 comments »

My wife and I bought a house two years ago, and planned to redo the kitchen pretty extensively. I grew up doing construction projects with my step-father and am able to do framing, drywall, finish work, electrical, and very basic plumbing on my own. We ended up tearing it down to the studs and starting from scratch, and did 99% of the project ourselves. I realized before we started that I was going to need more power tools. I had a drill, jigsaw, circular saw, and hand tools, but had no sp...

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

11-10-2013 07:54 PM by HillbillyShooter | 24 comments »

Some time ago, and without going into details, water got onto the out-feed table of my PowerMatic 60 long bed jointer. I use TopCote (now made by Bostik) on a regular basis to protect my tool tops, but it didn’t help prevent the rust or remove it. I was able to get the “red” rust off with steel wool and Boeshield T-9 Rust and Corrosion Protection. However, a black/gray stain remained which I couldn’t get off. This stain is shown in the second picture above. Recently I learned about a ...

What a value

What a value

07-15-2011 05:38 AM by BentheViking | 2 comments »

So I had wanted an air compressor, but didn’t really feel that I had the space and money for one. I felt that a table saw would be a much more worthy purchase. At the same point I am always looking into what new tools I can buy and poking on homedepot.com I found this guy. Originally $60 but they had it down for $40. I had some credit card rewards so after shipping and tax it only cost me like $13. This is a reconditioned kit and while it certainly looks it (some small scratches and ...

Furniture Building & Lutherie Classes

Furniture Building & Lutherie Classes

09-13-2011 06:18 PM by cellophane | 2 comments »

I stumbled onto Ted’s studio while looking for woodworking classes here in Louisville and have been immensely satisfied with everything I’ve done in the classes. I have taken a class or two at Woodcraft and they were good but there was just something missing for me. After sending an email and visiting the shop I signed up for a relatively intro level class making a shaker style coffee table. The course was in 3 hour sessions and lasted roughly 2 months, meeting once a week. ...

PSI Sharpening System

PSI Sharpening System

02-21-2011 03:49 AM by Moby | 2 comments »

I just recently received this sharpening system to put an edge on my dull turning tools. It does a good job but it could be better. Since the system is 8” in diameter sometimes the lathe bed can get in the way of sharpening the tools, a 9” or 10” version could give it some more room. Other than that it is a great system and you can’t beat it for around $40.

Fully Automatic Weapon

Fully Automatic Weapon

11-03-2008 07:26 PM by OutPutter | 10 comments »

So, this guy comes to the office to help one of the girls get into a cabinet that had a lost key. I heard all kinds of racket going on over there and thought I better sniff around. It’s a good thing I did because look what I saw. This is a drill with a 36 Volt Battery, two lights with 12 LEDs each, and a shoulder strap. The shoulder strap wasn’t just to help handle the weight, which I estimate at 5lbs, it was also to help with the torque. When you pull the trigger on this thi...

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

07-27-2009 06:03 PM by FrankLad | 1 comment »

When I decided to move my small woodworking operation indoors, I knew I would need some type of dust collection system. My projects are small – mostly wooden rings and the occasional ring box or other small item, but I still didn’t want even a small amount of fine dust particles floating around in our house. The good thing for me was I knew I wouldn’t require a full-fledged, expensive unit. After a bit of research (thanks to the guys in the LJ forums for suggestions!) I...
