Don’t be that guy

We spend a lot of time discussing the dangers inherent in our occupation.

Fast thinking

As woodworkers and as business owners, we are constantly presented with problems that need solutions.

Third time’s the charm

It’s been said that fixing something always tales two trips to the hardware store. But that’s not true. It takes three! It always takes three.

We gave them jobs

There are many things that could be said about our current presidential campaign, most of them less than positive. But whichever side of the fence you fall on, there is one thing that has gained focus and that is our immigration policy.

Lost its might

Oak is one of the most plentiful hardwoods we have. It has, in the minds of many, been synonymous with quality. But I have never really liked oak.

Amateurs vs. professionals

Technically speaking, the only difference between an amateur and a professional is that the professional gets paid.

Imagine that

It’s not a bad idea to keep in mind that the finest examples of woodworking were done in an age when power driven tools were unknown.


Most self-employed woodworkers are too shrewd to do everything themselves. They figured this out when they transitioned from artisan to businessman.

More and more

With all that has happened in our economy over the last decade, there seems to be a lot more people coming up short. That includes government agencies at every level.

Same price

Selling directly to the public is probably the best way to go, but there’s a lot to be said for having an outside sales force.
