EP 14- Merry Christmas and Happy Saw Kerfs To You

Anyone who has used an old crappy, rusty hand saw knows how frustrating it can be. The saw binds and gets stuck in the wood, probably because the saw has lost all the set in the teeth. But ancient saws, Roman, Greek even Egyptian saws apparently had no set at all. Is it possible Christmas changed that?

EP 9- Your Woodworking Shop Office

Setting up your shop office and managing all the unforeseen paperwork and ‘stuff’ that is involved in operating a small business can be daunting, but if you are well organized and dedicated to the small details you will do better woodworking and be more successful. You will need bookkeeping software, a word document, and maybe a spreadsheet program. You can ‘rent’ these by the month or get a FREE version to download on your computer. Using design software may be your style and there are FREE versions of that as well. We talk about FREE software for laying out parts on sheet goods and lumber to minimize waste. We even talk about FREE operating systems to replace Windows or MAC that can run on new or pretty old computers.
