  • Gotta LOVE New Neighbors (GLOAT)

    It was a beautiful sunny evening so I was out scrolling in the driveway. Some new neighbors from down the street were out walking their dog and came up to say" Hi" and see what I was doing. They were impressed with the sign I was cutting and asked to see some other stuff. We walked in the garage, they looked, they actually ooo -ed and awwww-ed (honest!). How much for this.........how much for that.........when can this be done..............that would look great in our entryway........ what is that tool (a lathe)......... what do you make with it.......THAT pen is made out of MOOSE antler????

    To end a pleasant visit, they left happy and I was left with $170 in sales/orders to finish up. (They want a moose antler pen, bias cut mesquite slimline pen, redheart Panache pen, Lily coat rack out of ash and cherry, and one of my daffodil patterns cut in Prima Vera)

    Like I said, a beautiful evening.

    Oh, I invited them to stop in ANYTIME they saw me sawing. Even said they could bring a friend or two.

          Well done! maybe the moral of the story is that we should all consider moving our scrollsaws out into the driveway or better still park theem at the front gate. Lol. We may all make better friends withthe neighbours, new and old.
          Cheers. Teresa .

                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                That is...

                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                Now,...
