"Oh yes, you account for the kerf, though I’m not sure what they mean by 5/8” as one of their dimensions for their 10” diameter blade, it seems thick, wish their photos were better.  I just looked at the website, and I would be…"

"Hi Linnea, I was thinking you could just get a better blade to fit your miter saw.  I was so impressed by the Lazeredge blade I got, especially compared with the one that came with the saw (granted, the blade that comes with the saw is not…"

What is your website?

What are the best things about art fairs
Art=Life=Art; one on one connections with real people who buy real art...and yes, it's hard, honest work!
Best show ever and why
Small show that netted me 5 figure sales for the first time...made all that hard work and time spent worth it!
Worst show ever and why
Microburst funneled down the street right at three booths, ours being the first corner one...holding and pushing against the wind, thinking my tent corners would buckle and we'd cartwheel down the street... Learned to use sta-bars and more weight; screwing into pavement didn't help. Things you cannot control-like weather-are a reality at any show.
