no previous part Part 1 of wood tick tools series Part 2: In the begining »

I am going to do a blog about the carbide insert lathe tools that I have made for myself and that I sell to fellow wood turners. I’m kinda new to blogging here and I hope the learning curve isn’t too steep, LOL. I asked in the forums section trade and swap if it was ok to sell tools here and the admin said no but I could blog about them and link them in my signature so I will abide by that answer and do just that. I will try and do this slowly over a few entries as I have lots of pics of the process. I’ll start by learning how to post pics with my logo that a member on another forum helped me with, I came up with the rough art and he cleaned it up for me. Might make a cool “t” shirt?

I will post more about my tool making journey soon, this is just a test and somewhere for me to start.

Good start and an interesting logo.

Look forward to reading about your tools.

Herb is right about the wtt, LOL. I will post more later and unfold the story, was in the shop most of today working on a batch of tools. Been snowing here all day and I have to go out and get some of the snow cleared so I can get out in the morning and go to work. There is supposed to be brutally cold weather the next couple of days here in the Detroit area. I spent some time today getting a bunch of photo’s pulled and made ready to post in the blog. I’ll try and get some pics posted after work during the week.
