Whitegate question

08-17-2021 11:23 AM by Kiwibird | 1 comment »

Can someone tell me where Whitegate Benches are made and if they have a website. I’m just trying to find out more about their background, as I purchased one from a junk yard and love to know the history of Vintage items I buy.

Craft Fairs and Farmers Markets #1: Dinosaurs are the best!

08-09-2021 10:07 AM by Karen Teeley | 0 comments »

I participate in local Farmers Markets to sell my children’s toys. My very first experience in 2017 was not a good one so it was a fluke in 2019 that I tried again. As it turns out, I’m glad I did because I love the interaction with the local customers and love to update and modify my designs based on feedback. I focus on the 18 month-12 y.o. age group and find that kids, parents and grandparents are all interested in my products. I try to keep my product lines simple, but as it i...

Milling Lumber from Arizona Residental Trees #4: Beautiful Mulberry bookmatched 2 in slabs cherry on a otherwise tough day.

04-01-2021 12:31 PM by azwoodworker | 2 comments »

Only one tree milled today. These logs are massively heavy to move about and now that Milling is going well. 7 to 10 minutes per cut, need to better work out moving and turning the logs. This Mulberry was heavy to the last cut. Milling on the ground is not good for my back nor best for the process, however, getting the logs up onto my Truss carriage took hours to do and move the carriage into a position where I mill. Might be time to really think out log moving as based on just mi...

Shop stuff #206: The huge project is done.

03-19-2021 06:58 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After months of work we finally got the lower level of our new home ready. This project is for my wife and she will be running the show. We are both exhausted. The bookings are coming in. Most of them forest fire workers coming up for the season, which is cool, long term is nice security. Anyway, here is the 25 cent tour of the place as it is. There may be odds and ends added or adjusted over time. We shall see.

Hi I would like to introduce myself

03-18-2021 11:55 AM by MarvelWoods | 7 comments »

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I am excited to join this forum. Besides my “about me” section of my profile I would like to see how of help to anyone who may be interested in the exotic woods that I have. As well as any questions that may arise about wood preparation. I own a top of the line vacuum wood kiln that was developed by Den Socling from PCS Vacuum Kilns. This has given much information about what it takes to dry wood in a heavily controlled environment and so forth. Don’t h...

Build a Keyboard Tray, Office Organization Solutions, Zoom Video Conference Setup Tips

02-13-2021 07:56 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I packed a lot into the video I just published today about office organization. I made a keyboard tray and shared some woodworking tips to help viewers learn about woodworking. This keyboard tray really frees up a lot of desk space. I also mounted my monitor and laptop on a stand to free up more space and get my video camera set at the right height for Zoom calls. I included some tips on how to setup your video and lighting for Zoom calls as well. I hope you find this useful and I ask th...

Saying Goodbye to Woodworking...

12-21-2020 10:30 PM by pashley | 11 comments »

I had to say goodbye to woodworking. My great hobby – and somewhat of a money-maker – had to be left behind, as I was going through a divorce and had to leave the home – and thus, my shop and tools – behind. I moved into an apartment, as to try to figure out my next life move, and obviously the tools couldn’t come. Yes, I entertained the idea of a storage unit, but for about $100 month, and for at least 2 years, that’s $2400 – and no guarantee it wouldn’t b...

Be forewarned Purchases from China, shipped from China are problematic..My personal experience leaves me to find supplies from local dealers and not direct from ChinaMany items on the net are direct from China and often have phoney shipping information…Pay pal will not refund monies sent to China if you cannot track the shipment..Nothing against Chinese products, just the shipping aspect..things from China take weeks to arrive and if tracking info is suspect you are out your hard ear...

Interesting Lumber Source in Portland, Oregon

08-03-2020 05:47 PM by gdaveg | 1 comment »

I stumbled across Goby Walnut Products about 2 years ago searching for live edge wood slabs. Here is a link: They specialize in large wood slabs, especially walnut and maple, with occasional myrtle, redwood, etc slabs. But their real value to me is they sell the short ends from their slabs by the pound ($1.25/# approx). So sorting through the boxes of walnut and maple shorts I can make projects for less money. There is a cost from waste. Th...
