Roughed out and DRY bowl blanks! Many of us wish we had the patience of those turners who, with forsight, rough out green bowl blanks then set them aside for YEARS to dry. Well, now you can benefit from someone who's done just that and made those bowl blanks available. We've got bowl blanks ranging in size from six to twelve inches accross. Species include maple, ambrosia maple, walnut, cherry, ash, spalted maple, and river birch. Drying time has been at least six years so they won't warp or crack after you've turned them to your finished shape. Priced from $8 to $22, these blanks are great value for bowl turners!
Our thanks to Dr. Terry Conners for the seminar he put on February 18th on recognizing wood and the characteristics of different species. Our thanks also to all of you who showed up to welcome Dr. Conners and benefit from his knowledge. It was a very rewarding and enlightning two hours. We all enjoyed it and learned a great deal thanks to Terry's light hearted teaching methods and his amazing, off the cuff knowledge of his subject. We are all grateful to Terry for a really enjoyable and memorable experience.
It's finally here!!!- A New Kreg Jig Display!
We have added a new Kreg Jig display to show the Kreg products that have become so popular. As you can see from the photo, it gives us more room for Kreg products and they are much better organized. We believe it also makes our store more attractive and more fun to visit. We hope you agree. Look to your e-mail for a sale sellebrating our new Kreg display!
We have a new computer dedicated to helping you choose your pens and pen blanks!
We call it a kiosk, and it consists of a desk you can sit at with a keyboard and a very large computer screen. There's a picture of it above. Just sit dow and make yourself at home. On the computer browse the pens and pick the type of pen kit you're interested in. Then choose a blank you might want to use. The computer will then display that pen complete with the finished blank. You'll be able to see just how that pen will look before turning it! This new system will save you time and money because you won't have to "experiment" with different pens or blanks to see how they'll look together. It's also just plain fun to browse through and see all the different pens available and what they look like with the blanks we have. Please come in and try it out. We think you'll really enjoy it.
New Whiteside pen mills are here! These are high quality pen mills just as you would expect from Whiteside. Buy the trimmer head for $12.99 and get shafts to fit the pens you make at $9.99 each. Or buy the 6 piece set for $39.99. That's almost like getting the trimmer head for free!
Also new is a selection of popular Veritas tools! The honing guides, dovetail markers, marking guages and hand scraper accessories are now available. Some of these are simply the best tools of their kind and exclusive to Veritas so we are very happy to offer them again.
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.
We also had a shortened version of our very popular class with Mike McCarthy. We offered it as a free demo as sort of a Father's Day gift for our wonderful customers. 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.
