  • First cuts

    Here are a couple of examples of what I've been doing. They aren't very good but I can see progress. After reading and talking to a few folks I have found that my wood is too thick, it's 1/2 inch plywood and poplar. Today I found some 1/4 inch birch and will try that. Still trying to figure out the blade sizes, some are really aggressive. Keep trying though, right? I did try the blue tape on back and it made a world of difference in the cutting, it helps A LOT! More pics will come as I progress.

    Anyone with suggestions, ideas or constructive criticism please jump in.

    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...

    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...
