Wood Deals Online – I wanted to share a project that I’ve been working on over the last few weeks. What started out as a tool to make my life easier, I quickly realized other folks would really enjoy this too. But first, a little backstory. I normally like to buy my lumber online. I find that I have a better selection and the prices are very reasonable. One of my favorite places to shop for wood is eBay. However, if you have ever shopped through eBay, it can be a bit overwhelming. There is a lot of information thrown at you, you have to sift through so much garbage, and it can be cumbersome to find what you’re looking for. So I created brand new website called WoodDealsOnline.com. I gather all of the information from eBay and package it up in a nice friendly interface and organized it for easy shopping. We have woods broken into craft type (pen turning, wood turning, carving, scroll sawing, marquetry, etc.). We also have the woods broken down by species, which intarsia artists will absolutely love! So if you’re looking for birdseye maple or the all elusive ebony, it’s just a click away. We even have the woods broken down by characteristics such as burl, spalting, tiger, etc. This website is mostly geared to the woodcrafter/small woodworker, but furniture builders will find it very useful as well.
Be sure to check out the above video for a tour of the new website, then head over to Wood Deals Online and kick the tires a bit. I confident you’ll like what you see. Make sure you bookmark the website so that when you’re ready to buy wood for your next project, you’ll have it available. You won’t regret it.

The Village Store – When Scroll Saw Goodies was hosted on blogspot.com (before moving to Scroll Saw Village), I had a small Amazon associates store where I hand picked a number of products I believe my readers would enjoy. It took some time, but I finally brought it back. The store is now hosted on Scroll Saw Village. You can easily find it in the top navigation bar. Inside you’ll find a lot of great books organized by subject, a nice selection of clipart, professional graphics suites, and even scroll saws. There are a lot of great stuff inside, so be sure to check it out. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, click the Amazon banner to shop directly from Amazon. It doesn’t cost you any extra, and any purchases made as a result of the store or banner helps support this podcast and website. So next time you think of Amazon shopping, think of us and click our banner first. You’re support is greatly appreciated. We also have associate links to Rockler and Woodcraft. So check those out too.
Inkscape Class – One last announcement that I didn’t cover in the video, we will be holding an Inkscape class starting at the beginning of September. We’ll learn to use Inkscape to create our own scroll saw patterns. It will operate much the same way as our GIMP class. It will be held in the Village University forum and include video demonstrations, written instructions and class discussions. It will be a 4 week class, with 2 lessons each week. So mark your calender.
