Welcome to your source for all your hobby and professional woodworking needs! Buy local and support your local business.
Mark your calendars for Friday and Saturday, October 7th & 8th for our 18th Anniversary Sale! Nearly everything including most power tools will be 10% off!* On Friday, October 7th at 1:00pm, Robert Crouse will be demonstrating the use and matenance of hand planes. He'll also explain why every woodworker needs them. On Satuday starting at 1:00pm Al Schroeder will be demonstrating a clever way to make segmented turnings! This is a very interesting and simple method. I had always considered segmented turning to be out of my realm of possibilities. But with Al's simple template you can make the blank from peices you cut and glue up in a very short time! Then it's just like turning any other bowl or vase. Come in to the store and see a vase that Al did using this method. You'll be impressed. So please join us on October 7th and 8th for great prices and excellent demonstrations. You might even learn something new!
*-Usual exclusions such as Festool, SawStop, Leigh Jig, Oneida, etc. apply. See store for details.

Watch for our monthly flyers! Keep your eyes out for the specials you will find in our monthly flyer! It will show you exactly what's on special that month, what the prices are, and if there are limited quantities available. Through negotiations with our vendors we are frequently able to offer you really special deals that can save you considerable amounts of money! In the center of that flyer is our class page. It shows what classes we are offering over the next several weeks. Look for that because our classes are very informative. They can teach you things that will save you hours of frustration and in some cases considerable amounts of money.
Sign up for our e-mails! Almost every week on Thursday or Friday we will send out an e-mail that has specific sale items. Sometimes they are limited to our e-mail customers. We will ask you to print out the e-mail and bring it in - using the printout as a coupon to receive the special pricing. Other times they are e-mails that announce special discounts that are available to everyone. But watch for those e-mails because there is usually something in there that can save you money. It will also announce upcoming free demonstrations that we will be hosting.
Our monthly free demonstrations are fun and informative! Covering topics from dust collection to finishing, we have a free demonstration the second Saturday of nearly every month (December is the only exception that comes to mind). It always starts at 1:00pm and goes for an hour or two depending on the topic. This is something you should get in the habit of attending. It's free, fun, and informative. Learn some tricks of the trade you weren't previously familiar with.

We need instructors and ideas for new classes, so if you're good at making a particular type of turkey call or if you would like to teach people your methods for making bandsaw boxes or whatever, we want to hear from you. Likewise, let us know if you're a beginning or advanced woodworker and you would like to learn a particular technique or process.

Stop in and try the new Easy Wood Tools turning tools.
No more sharpening because the cutting tips are carbide so they last about as long as you would normally sharpen thirty times. Then you buy a new carbide tip. The tool never wears out. It never gets sharpened down to a nub. And they are SO SHARP that it's hard to believe they work so well. We've got them set up - come on in and try them out! It's FUN!
Here's an example of one of our classes. This was a cabinet making class - it's a popular class and fills up quickly.
Mike discussed how to size cabinets, doors, drawers, and faceframes. He then created the faceframe (using Kreg Jig pocket holes) to fit a raised panel door he had prepared earlier. Proceeding with the cabinet, Mike explained each step answering questions as he went. With the carcass prefit, he marked the faceframe for dadoes that would be cut on the router table. After assembling with a test fit, Mike glued it and fit it together, fastening the parts together with a nail gun to avoid using clamps. During the demo Mike gave us some great tips on using table saws, band saws, router tables, jointers, and planers. All during the demonstration people were saying "Oh, I get it now!" It was a great learning experience for all who attended. We'll try to convince Mike to do another demo soon. Make sure you don't miss it! It will be announced in your e-mail so please read it.
