General Board / Selling stuff you make
« Last post by drewactual on September 03, 2020, 04:11:25 PM »
I dont know of there will be interest but I took a chance and built it anyway, if just for my own stuff...

If you want to sell things on the internet- a proper store, proper adverts, and proper presentation- drop me a line here, pm, or email. 

I'd like to see the community get more than just satisfaction from building things.  We can become a community of craft builders too...  is the site.

The idea is you'll get a profile and a mini-store within the store... you'll basically become a producer, and I'll be the presenter (through the store).

Speight, you might want to call Styron Tree Service in Morehead City. Also, Settle Tree Service in Newport might also be worth a try. I have used both in the past, and was happy with their work.

General Board / Hardwood Logs for woodturning

I have a client that has asked for a table made from a log 34-36" diameter and 26" tall.  If anybody has a leed on a downed tree (no more than a year) or one being removed soon please let me know.  Preferably it is a sycamore, red maple, hickory, or pecan.  Also please let me know of any arborist or tree services that I should call.

In general, I am always looking for hardwood logs, especially white oak, maple, black gum, sweetgum, and holy. 

Thanks, Speight
I'd be interested to know if this is something you guys would want?

I can set up boards here on the site for whomever wants and give that user moderator control over that board, and provide a place for you to market or showcase your work if selling is something you wish to entertain?

I can even set up a store for you to do so if you so wish......

Hi Drew.  They are both made from oak and white ash.  I used oak on the top piece because of the stress that the strings might put on it.  They actually have good sound.  My grandson plays both acoustic and standard electric guitar but when he saw and tried my double head Lap Steel he wanted to learn how to play one.  Hence, I built him the single and he's having fun with it.  I have a standard electric and a 4 string base guitar but I have never played a steel guitar so it should be some fun learning.  The lap steel costs very little and is easy to make.  It would be a nice project for you.
