Where can I get some cheap Japanese puzzle boxes from?
So I need a few puzzle boxes to distribute amongst a group of friends of mine next February, but they're pretty expensive! The cheapest (whilst being most decent at such a price) that I can find is roughly around £18, but since I need around 10 that'll cost a lot in total! Is there anything that I could do, or somewhere that I could look in order to get a cheaper deal (perhaps in bulk)? I wouldn't mind making them neither, despite the fact that I haven't got a Band Saw or any other advanced woodworking machinery like that. I really need these puzzle boxes, and I'd do anything to get them, I just need a cheaper price, I'd really appreciate if any of you can help :') Thanks folks!

how does a sandblaster work?
I'd like to know the basic features so that I can buy one to suit my needs; refinishing old woodworking machinery. Thanks
Question answered by Spaceman Spiff
Sandblasting, sometimes referred to as bead blasting, is the easiest, quickest way to remove old paint, rust, dirt and grease from metal and other hard surfaces. It's also used for removing paint (such as graffiti) and discoloration from stone and brick buildings, for etching frosted decorations on glass, stone or tile and for "weathering" wood and carving wood signs.
A sandblaster works on the same principle as a paint sprayer. Compressed air at high pressure is used to blow fine sand or other abrasive material through a hardened spray nozzle. The abrasive particles quickly eat away whatever they are directed at, leaving a clean, matte surface. They will also begin to eat away at the actual surface of the object, so care must be exercised to avoid damage.
Sandblasting is a chore best suited to service professionals because of the mess involved, environmental requirements, and the care needed to keep from over-blasting the area being cleaned. Sandblasting is intended for jobs that require some stripping and abrasion.
Where to put woodworking machinery if you live in an apartment.?
I want to start getting some machinery for woodworking, but i prefer if i live in an apartment rather than a house. Are there small buildings to rent out to use for workshops? Or should i look for apartments that come with a separate garage and put it all in there? I feel like they wouldnt allow that, but i havent asked. If those dont work should i just consider resting out a house? What are my options?

How about those self storage units? a lot of people use them for other than storage. Some units have electrical available. I know people who re-vamp vehicles in some of them, and others who do woodworking and metal working in them. I think there is a charge for the amount of electricity used, but it would be worth it for the convenience of having a "shop".
What is this commercial machinery called?
This machine presses a sheet of Formica countertop over a piece of wood (mold).
Its commercial machinery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Question answered by blinkenlights7
Formica is molded using a special type of hot forming press with rollers called a "postformer". You can obtain postformers from industrial woodworking equipment suppliers. Here is a typical supplier:
Formica can also be hand formed using heaters of various types, even heat guns, in combination with special waxes that melt at the critical temperature.

In a woodworking business, would things like sandpaper and rags for wiping stains be considered Cost of Goods?
I do the accounting for a woodworking business. I understand that materials such as wood and paint and the factory labor are costs of good sold. I am also pretty sure that the factory machinery and tools that we use are not necessarily costs of goods sold. For me, the gray area is the little things like sandpaper and the rags that we use to wipe on the stains. We go through a lot of these and it's a pretty big expense. I just want to make sure they are accounted for correctly.

I don't think so..it would likely be a supply much like office supplies would be.

How do i build a computer desk?
I want to build my own computer desk. Can someone give me some great books to learn about woodworking. Some advice would be nice too. Thanks
Question answered by DONALD P
Try 'woodworking' in Amazon, they have a facility where you can look inside the book.
Ask at your local Tech college for evening hobby courses.
For some years it is going to be a lot cheaper to buy a desk than to buy the wood.
Most are made of veneered chipboard but if you wish to go to solid wood you really need some years experience to avoid disappointment and a workshop of machinery.
Some local joiners are prepared to cut and plane wood to size for you which means you could finish with hand tools. Most will probably give you advice and sketchs of joints etc.
What are some essential power tools to have when doing small and large wood crafts?
In the near future I want to start making wood crafts and sell them at craft shows just as a side job. It's something I've always been interested in and I want to get an idea on how much it would cost me to get it started by making a list of power tools & machinery I would need. I already have an idea of what I might need but maybe more experienced people can name something I haven't thought of.

Depending on what yo uwant to make I would sugest a good table saw, a drill press and either a small/med lathe and a 21 inch scroll saw would be a good start. You can always add tools depending on what you need later on Also a small band saw can be a great addition to a workshop.
I do alot of woodworking as a hobby and so far I haven't found anything I couldn't make with those few tools. My shop area is'nt huge just the back corner of my garage really but I've produced some really neat thing in there
