Low Prices Quality Tools #1: Is this too good to be true ?

02-11-2019 05:46 PM by Richard | 4 comments »

I keep seeing online ads for this website offering great prices for brand named tools and just wondered if it is one of those scam sites or is it real ?I need some extra batteries for my growing collection of DeWalt 20Volt tools and I can barely believe the prices they have. I see a pack of 4 batteries for less than I can get just one at my local Lowes or HD stores and the price on a 10 tool DeWalt set is so low I really want to get it to pretty much fill o...

How to Price Your Work?

12-22-2018 11:57 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 5 comments »

For those of you who sell pieces, how do you price your work? I struggled with this when I started selling my woodworking pieces back in 1999. Since then, I’ve used business skills and understanding my local market to know what works best. From talking to other woodworkers, I understand this challenging for them too, so I share openly what I charge per hour and an industry range as well in this video called: How to Price Your Work – This is a ...

Laser Engraving on the Jersey Shore #1: Anybody want to partner up?

12-13-2018 04:18 PM by njdave | 2 comments »

We also engraved on glass, aluminum dog tags, drum sticks, baseball bats, clocks, etc. My equipment was a couple of...

Dave Spacht provides quality local hardwoods to local woodworkers, and unlike the larger mills, is as happy to help the hobbyist find 5 BF of cherry as to help a small shop or contractor that needs 100 BF. He has a wide selection of surfaced slabs an flitches if you like live-edge projects, too. On Saturday, he will be offering demonstr...

I thought I retired

09-10-2018 07:36 PM by WoodenDreams | 2 comments »

My wife and I were looking for a Toy Box for our grandchildren, but couldn’t find anything with the quality we were looking for. So we settled on plastic totes. I retired in 2016 and started a woodworking shop as a hobby with quality in mind. This turned into a overblown hobby. January 2017 this turned into a business. I Build to order Hope, Cedar and Toy Chests. I also take on Restoration & Specialty projects. I have on display a Hope Chest in a store that they take orders on, and ...
