CREATE UNIQUE MOLDING PATTERNS BY COMBINING STOCK PROFILES — and a little help from Woodmaster

You won't find a baseboard pattern like this anywhere except in Rob Schramm's shop. That's because he combines various profiles to create unique patterns, then has Woodmaster turn his drawings into custom knives.

“I’ve done woodworking since I was little. I was in construction and painting for 25 years, now I make high-end custom mirrors using antique-finish mirror glass. My company is Timeless Reflections. http://www.antiqued-mirrors.com/

I own a Woodmaster 718 and use it to make mirror frames and also specialty trim for other projects. I make molding rather than buy generic trim patterns from home centers and big box stores.

High-end work deserves custom trim

I chose Woodmaster because no other molder/planer works as well. I got the 18” 718 because I’m in a commercial business. I never run anything over 12” wide but I wanted more power than Woodmaster’s 12” 712.

Each Woodmaster pattern knife is computer cut, hand-ground, and hand-honed. A perfect blend of the latest computer technology and old-fashioned hand craftsmanship.

Each Woodmaster pattern knife is computer cut, hand-ground, and hand-honed. A perfect blend of the latest computer technology and old-fashioned hand craftsmanship.

I have a big collection of molding knives. Most are custom made, many by Woodmaster. I always get duplicate knife patterns — I run two blades at a time in Woodmaster’s 700S2 head. It’s not like one blade isn’t enough. But running two blades, I can run large moldings at full speed and rarely have to sand anything.

Combining stock profiles yields one-of-a-kind patterns

I customize my own knives with the help of Woodmaster Tools. I design my own moldings by setting up two or three of my knives in the head to create the profile I want. I make a wooden prototype and send it to Woodmaster to be turned into a knife in M2 steel.

Here's why Rob makes the big bucks — see his remarkable antique glass mirror installation at the Big Grove Tavern in Champaign, IL — and many other establishments.

Hooked

Woodmaster’s a 10 out of 10 and I have nothing but good things to say about the machine and the people at the company. If you don’t own one, but have been thinking of buying a Woodmaster 718, stop thinking and start buying. It is my favorite tool in my shop and since I have bought it I have never looked back. Run your first piece of molding and you will be HOOKED!”

MAKE LOG CABIN SIDING WITH A WOODMASTER — Twin brothers tell their woodworking story

Todd and Tim James built Tim's new home on the 364 Pennsylvania acres that's been their family's farm since 1956. They made all their own log cabin siding with their Woodmaster.

Hi, Woodmaster,

This is Todd and Tim James writing. We’re twin brothers. We purchased a Woodmaster from you two years ago. We started a project building a log cabin two years ago. Everything you see in the pictures was done with our Woodmaster.

We build cottages, tables, benches, log beds, kids’ playhouses, tongue and groove boards, log siding, wood trim, hardwood flooring, and more.

Our Woodmaster has paid for itself and we’ve done a lot of log siding for customers. We love it and have had a lot of success with it. We like doing woodworking and we’ve run a lot of wood through this machine!

“We had never done any woodworking”

“We’re twins, 52 years old. Tim started building a house and wanted log siding so we got a Woodmaster 718 and started making our own. Then I started building furniture. It’s getting so people are beginning to see my work and are ordering tables and more. We build log siding hunting shacks for people, nine of them so far.

We’re farm boys and had never done any woodworking. We’ve raised cattle and white tail deer on our 364 acres here in Pennsylvania.

Quite a lovely view from Tim's front porch.

Quite a lovely view from Tim’s front porch.

 

I spent $15,000 on siding for my doublewide. Then I got on the internet and looked at woodworking machinery. We found Woodmaster and saw you can make your own log siding. We got a Woodmaster and started making it. Woodmaster had the most capability and options for the price. Grizzly equipment can’t make log siding. That’s why we got the upgraded 5HP motor. When you make log siding, you’re taking off so much wood you want the extra power.

I had Woodmaster make me a log cabin siding knife. I sent a sample piece of siding that has a deeper profile than their stock knives. I also got the Trim Package and made the hardwood flooring for my house. It’s a good story…..

The James boys make furniture, too, with their Woodmaster. Todd tells us his furniture business is starting to take off.

“If he’d known, he’d have charged me a lot more”

A fellow I know had six or seven pickup truck loads of logs sitting in the woods so long they looked like they’d gone all rotten. I offered him $50 for everything. I showed him a sample after I’d sawn, ripped, and planed it into flooring. I used Woodmaster’s 3-Side Molding System to cut the tongue and groove. He said if he’d known the wood would turn out that nice he’d have charged me a lot more!

Pennsylvania, of course, has a long hunting heritage. Tim and Todd build log cabin hunting sheds — 9 so far and counting.

Pennsylvania, of course, has a long hunting heritage. Tim and Todd build log cabin hunting sheds — 9 so far and counting.

Tim works in manufacturing; I’m doing woodworking full time now. We got your Model 718 with an upgraded 5HP motor, a high production C2 molding head, a spiral cutterhead, and your 3-side molding system. I use our Woodmaster primarily as a planer, sometimes as a sander. I use the ripsaw, too.

Tips to make a wood floor look great

For flooring, I’ll make floorboards several widths. I may put a 7” board through the gang ripsaw attachment and rip it into two boards — one 4” and one 3”. I lay down a 4” board, then a 3”, then a 2”. That breaks up the contrast and really makes the floor look great. I put up ceiling boards the same way — an 8” board, then a 6”, then 8” and so on.

Woodmaster was less money than other machines even with all the extra attachments. If I’d bought separate machines for each function, I’d have to get a separate planer, a sander, a ripsaw, and a siding machine. My shop wouldn’t hold them all. Woodmaster is 4 machines in 1. Tool changes are easy, I can swap out heads in 20 minutes max. The heads swap easily.

Beautiful workmanship and an extraordinary surface on this handmade table.

“I can make up to $300 in a day”

Guys bring me lumber to plane into log siding and I charge them 20 cents a board foot. And they’re bringing 75 or 100 boards for me to run. I can make up to $300 a day just making log siding.I’m very happy with all this equipment. If I get busier, I might buy a bigger Woodmaster. I’d keep one set as a planer and the other for other jobs.

Nice little business —  lot of fun, too

I’m having a lot of fun doing this. My brother and I have put probably 10,000 board feet through the machine. I run it every day. This is turning into a nice little business, covers all I need. It keeps my mind occupied as I build things. That makes my day!”

Larry always wanted a log cabin, now he’s built one. He sawed out the board then turned them into log cabin siding on his Woodmaster.

“I’m retired and I can’t just sit around. I got my Woodmasters because I have a hobby of making things. You can definitely make money with a Woodmaster. These machines can pay for themselves. You can make a hundred dollars or a thousand, it’s up to you.”

I always wanted a log cabin and now I’m building one. It’s 40’ x 32’. Part of it is for the grandkids when they come and visit. The other part is my wood shop.

I was a lineman for 42 years and I salvaged the good pieces of poles we replaced. I sawed them with my TimberKing Sawmill and made log cabin siding with my Woodmaster Molder/Planer. I have two — my 12” Woodmaster 712 and my 18” Woodmaster 718.

 

You might call this Larry's "man cave" -- he calls it his workshop, set up with his 712 and 718 Woodmaster Molder/Planers.

I needed a planer and I’d always heard about Woodmaster. At first I was just planing. I set up my 718 as a dedicated planer. As soon as I’d get it set up for planing, somebody would come in and want molding and I’d switch it over to a molding machine. That’s when I got the 712 — now I have a dedicated planer and a dedicated molder.

"My TimberKing mill paid for itself 2 times over," says Larry. And when it comes to his Woodmasters, "You can make good money making molding with a Woodmaster."

The power poles I sawed and put through my Woodmasters were pretty soft but the maple was dry and super-hard. But these machines take off a lot of wood with no problems, no complaints at all. They have plenty of power. The log cabin pattern knives take off a lot of wood and you need a good vacuum system. Mine works real well.

Here's a photo of the interior of Larry's shop. Note the walls and ceiling are wood paneling. Lots of room for Larry's many projects.

I’m one of those guys who learns by doing. I got the log cabin knives and put them in wrong. I called Woodmaster and they told me just how to do it right. Now they work like clockwork. I get knives and parts from Woodmaster, anything I’d ever want, in no time at all. Woodmaster’s customer service is outstanding.

I’ve used a lot of planers in my lifetime and the Woodmaster’s the best I’ve ever used. They’re durable, simple, and there’s not a lot that can go wrong.”

Woodmaster’s a combo planer, drum sander, molder, gang rip saw

“I built this cutting board using my Woodmaster,” says Paul. “I set it up as a planer to dimension and surface the wood. That’s an important first step to make sure you end up with a really professional quality cutting board.”

"I change the Woodmaster over from a Planer to a Drum Sander simply by swapping the head. It only takes a few minutes."

“I change the Woodmaster over from a Planer to a Drum Sander simply by swapping the head. It only takes a few minutes.”

Paul explains more. “Then I switched my Woodmaster over to a drum sanding machine by taking out the planer head and putting in the drum sander head instead. Of course you can build this other ways but the Woodmaster is a very efficient way to create a perfectly flat, smooth surface. It’s 4 machines in 1 – a combo planer, drum sander, molding machine, and gang rip saw, all in just 9 square feet of shop space.”

"Woodmaster's unique Reversing Switch brings the wood back to me as I sand. This saves me from having to run laps around my Woodmaster from infeed to outfeed."

“Woodmaster’s unique Reversing Switch brings the wood back to me as I sand. This saves me from having to run laps around my Woodmaster from infeed to outfeed.”

Beautiful, durable, food safe

Build this outstanding cutting board from walnut and maple as Paul does, or choose your own woods. “Because this is an end grain cutting board, it’s gentle on your knives,” says Paul. “Your knives stay sharper longer. And the board stays handsome because it’s self-healing. When you cut vegetables or meats, the end grain tends to swell up as it absorbs moisture and the cuts close themselves. It stays nicer looking longer.”

Paul reveals how to get the mortar lines straight and tight

"Final sanding with the Woodmaster set up as a drum sander is fast and easy. I take off a little at a time and end up with a perfectly flat, smooth finish."

HOW TO BOOST YOUR WOODWORKING PROFITS 500% — Woodmaster Sales Rep tells all

   When you call Woodmaster Tools or our sister company, TimberKing Sawmills, you might just get Matt Muehlebach on the other end. Go ahead, ask your questions and you’ll soon realize you’ve reached someone who knows these machines inside and out. And not just because he read the manuals. Matt knows our machines through his own personal, hands-on woodworking experience. 

Matt in Shop 05A

Matt's a sales rep for Woodmaster's sister company, TimberKing Sawmills, here in Kansas City. But he sure knows his way around Woodmaster equipment. He made the fireplace surround shown here including all the molding. Always resourceful, Matt tells us, "I made it with locally-sawn lumber and a table I found on the side of the road."

A POSTER CHILD for Woodmaster, we stole Matt away from his sales phone long enough to snap his picture with our biggest, Model 725 Woodmaster. You'll see this same photo on our website and in our catalogs.

“I’m a Sales Rep for TimberKing Sawmills. I’m also well versed in Woodmaster equipment — Woodmaster Tools is our sister company here in Kansas City. And I own and use a 12” Woodmaster Molder/Planer. I’m on the phone all the time with TimberKing customers and owners, and also with Woodmaster customers and owners. Besides using our machines myself, talking with other woodworkers all day long really helps me tell our customers how to get the most out of them.

How to boost woodworking profits 500%

For example, TimberKing Sawmill customers will often ask what’s the best way to make money with their mills. I suggest adding a Woodmaster Molder/Planer. With a molder/planer, they can really increase their profits. Together, the Woodmaster and the TimberKing really complement each other. Here’s how:

Just for example, let’s say a sawmill owner can sell a board foot of rough sawn lumber — 12” x 12” x 1” — for $4. So he’ll sell an 8’ board, 12” wide by 1” thick, for $32. If he could turn that board into molding, say 4” crown, and sell it for $8 per linear foot, he’d make substantially more.

Now, if that sawyer has a Woodmaster Molder/Planer, he can do exactly that. He can rip that 12” wide board into 3, 4” wide boards, and turn them into crown molding. He now has 24 lineal feet of molding that’s worth $8 a lineal foot, or $192. That’s a 500% increase, or six times the income!

And whether you’re sawing rough lumber or buying it, Woodmaster’s “value add” performance is the same. Putting rough sawn wood through a Woodmaster adds value.

Matt uses more of our equipment, and uses it more often, than just about anybody else here at Woodmaster. Matt made this simple but elegant wedding bench from what he calls "front yard wood" -- wood from a tree from the front yard. He sawed the wood on a TimberKing Sawmill and turned the boards into this beautiful bench with a Woodmaster.

Which came first — Matt’s woodworking or his Woodmaster?

I’ve been a woodworker for years, long before I went to work for TimberKing. I used friends’ Woodmaster Molder/Planers so I knew all about them before starting here.

I own a 12” Woodmaster Molder/Planer and I use it all the time. It’s awesome! I build all kinds of things. For example, I built 25 picnic tables — actually, 50 half-tables. Push two together and they form a full picnic table. I sold them to customers all over.

I’d call myself a mid-range woodworker. I build pretty good stuff but not high-end furniture — I’m too impatient! I use some quick methods like biscuits and pocket hole joinery.

Dresser Rescue Program

I’m using my Woodmaster right now to do work on my home. I used it to cut boards to replace my back stairs, soffits, and more. I build all kinds of furniture, cabinets, entertainment centers, coffee tables, end tables, dressers, and more. I’ve made tongue and groove flooring using Woodmaster’s 3-Side Molding System. And I do what I call a ‘dresser rescue program.’ If I see a dresser someone’s throwing away I’ll take it home, repair it, and put it back on the roadside for someone else to pick up for free.

What else do I do? I made the picnic tables we use here at our factory. I made the boards of molding samples hanging on the wall in our sales office. I make the pallets that Woodmaster and TimberKing equipment is shipped out on. I’ve built furniture for just about everybody who works for TimberKing and Woodmaster!

You've got to admit it — this is pretty clever. Matt makes benches (left) with backs that flip up to form half a picnic table (right). When you have two of them, leave the tops down and you've got two benches. Flip the tops over and put two together and you have a full size picnic table.

My neighbor has 70 rental homes. He takes out old carpeting and puts in tile, wood flooring, that sort of thing. I make all the transition pieces for him as well as a lot of cabinet doors and drawers. I hadn’t had my Woodmaster a week before he asked me to make molding for him. I ran 312 feet of molding and charged $1 a foot. He was pleased as can be. I was, too.

Every woodworker's dream: a never ending supply of FREE hardwood boards. Matt gets 'em when he demos TimberKing Sawmills, takes 'em home, air dries 'em, and turns 'em into tables, cabinets, benches, and much more with his Woodmaster. Oak, sycamore, basswood in Matt's stack.

Working for TimberKing, I get a lot of wood for my projects for free. When a customer comes to pick up one of our sawmills, we demo the mill for him by sawing out some boards. I end up taking the boards home, air drying them, and using them to build furniture.

“Woodmaster’s built like a tank”

When I talk to friends, other woodworkers, or our customers, I tell them Woodmaster and TimberKing machines are built like tanks. They’re super easy to learn to use, and more importantly they’re easy to work on. Other mills, other molder/planers, are a nightmare to work on. Changing blades on others can be a nightmare!

As a woodworker, I’m extremely happy with my Woodmaster Molder/Planer. It’s one machine that will make flooring, siding, molding and more, and is a thickness planer, too. Many of my customers have told me they purchased their Woodmasters in large part because I’m so enthusiastic about them!”

HE SAVED $32,000 MAKING TRIM with his WOODMASTER — with no woodworking experience!

“I found out making your own trim is not rocket science. Anybody can do it. As long as you can read and follow Woodmaster’s directions you’ll have no problem.”

What would you do? Would you pay a contractor $40,000 to install trim, or do the work yourself with a Woodmaster and save $32,000? For retired homeowner, Michael Beaty, the answer was simple.

On the advice of someone who owned a Woodmaster Molder/Planer, he bought one of his own and plenty of rough sawn oak. He made and installed his own trim, saved 80%…and kept the Woodmaster!

IMG_2793 test

“My wife, Mary, and I bought an old farmhouse about 20 years ago. This old house dates back to 1837. Our intention was to live in it for a year or so then bulldoze it down and build a new home on the property. But the post and beam frame was in such good shape we decided to renovate and redo it instead.

You don't need a huge shop to take on big projects. The Woodmaster is four key woodworking tools in just nine square feet — pro-duty planer, molding machine, drum sander, and gang rip saw.

You don’t need a huge shop to take on big projects. The Woodmaster is four key woodworking tools in just nine square feet — pro-duty planer, molding machine, drum sander, and gang rip saw.

This home was built in three parts. There’s the original, 1837 house. Then, in 1915, an owner put on an addition. We bought it in 1995, hired an architect, and put on a second addition. We raised the house and added a foundation underneath. We added a living room with high vaulted ceilings and a masonry fireplace.

The three parts of our home were built at very different times and we wanted to tie them all together aesthetically with the wood trim work — baseboards, window trim, door trim, stairway banister, and so on. It’s been a long project but we’re almost done now.

 Beaty closeup

He saved 80% doing it himself with a Woodmaster

I got three estimates on having a contractor do that work and got quotes from $40,000 to $43,000. I happened to go to a nearby hardwood lumberyard and asked about wood trim. They said they knew someone who’d made his own trim with a Woodmaster Molder/Planer and had done the same kind of renovation we were doing. They put us in touch and he advised me to get an 18” Woodmaster Model 718 and make the trim myself. He suggested I do what he did: get rough cut, kiln dried lumber, have it straight-lined on one edge, and do the rest on my Woodmaster.

I did what he said. I ended up saving about 80% of what a contractor would have charged. And I got to keep the Woodmaster!

“I had no woodworking experience but making molding is not rocket science”

I had never done anything like this before. I had no real woodworking experience, no lessons. I found out making your own trim is not rocket science. Anybody can do it. As long as you can read and follow Woodmaster’s directions you’ll have no problem. Here’s what we did:

IMG_2809

They researched old public buildings and measured the trim

We got the Woodmaster and started going into local courthouses and old public buildings in our area to see what kind of trim patterns were used at the time our home was first built. There are a lot of oaks in our area and a lot of the trim in older local buildings was made from oak. So that’s what we used. We took measurements then looked through Woodmaster’s Molding Pattern Catalog and picked the Woodmaster knife patterns we wanted.

4-in-1 Woodmaster planed, ripped, molded his trim

Door Trim

We had rough cut oak delivered and I planed it on the Woodmaster to a consistent 3/4″ thickness. Then I figured out how much trim I’d need for all the windows, doors, and the baseboards. I ripped it all to the right widths on the Woodmaster. Then fed the blanks through the machine with knives installed in the cutterhead and made molding.

I like to put the finish on the trim before installation. We used Minwax matte clear stain so we could accent the grain. Then I installed it myself using an air nail gun. To attach the small pieces — borders and decorations — I used a hot glue gun.

All told, I probably ran 900 board feet through my Woodmaster. The trim really looks great and ties this whole home together. The machine worked perfectly and the job went along fine.

Age is no barrier to big renovation projects

This kind of work is NOT just a young person’s game. I’m 71, retired, and I’ve been working on this house for several years. I tore everything out and put in new wiring, new plumbing, and now new trim. It’s all insulated so it’s cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

For anybody else who’s thinking of doing this kind of old home renovation, I’d suggest doing your research first. Visit old public buildings to see how they were put together back then and what kind of trim they used. Find a local supplier of kiln dried wood native to your area because that’s old houses were made from local materials. Get a Woodmaster like I did, and do the planing and molding yourself. Read Woodmaster’s directions and go slow at first.

The Woodmaster is a great machine. I like it and I don’t want to sell it even though I have no big projects coming up. But it’s very handy to have and you can save a great deal of money doing it yourself. Really, doing what we did was a relatively easy and interesting project!”

“I started working in wood at age six and I’ve been doing it my entire life. In high school I was a carpenter’s helper, helping renovate apartments. I became an electrician, then a civil engineer and architect. I helped design bridges and tunnels in Seattle, the Sears Tower in Chicago, and more.

A busy shop means a happy woodworker. Here's Dale with one of his 3 Woodmaster Molder/Planers. He got his first one in the early 1990's and has been adding on ever since!

I went into business for myself and was a general contractor for 35 years, all the while doing woodworking. Now, as a retirement business, I’ve bought 19 houses that need renovation — I fix, renovate, and upgrade them with cabinetry, trim, and more. That’s why I got my first Woodmaster Molder/Planer. Then I got another, then a third.

3 Woodmasters — 2 set up as molders, 1 as a planer

I have two 25” 725 Woodmasters, both set up as molding machines because I make a lot of door and window trim, baseboard, and more. My 18” 718 Woodmaster is set up as a planer. I also have a CNC laser engraver I use to make 3-D carvings I incorporate in my cabinets and more projects.

“Before I make anything, I prepare the wood with my Woodmaster planer”

I make furniture, toys, cabinetry, and more. Before I build anything, I always prepare my wood first — I make it flat by putting it through my Woodmaster planer.

I use a lot of reclaimed and ‘cull’ lumber; lower quality boards I can buy inexpensively. I use a lot of black walnut, oak, red alder, maple, exotic woods, and many more hardwoods.

Many of my projects start as glued-up panels I make from cull wood. I run the panels through the Woodmaster to plane them flat and to the right thickness. Cabinets, drawers, raised panel doors, balusters, stair tread, door and window trim, baseboards, cove trim, toys, furniture — I start them all by running the wood through my planer first.

When I’m making trim and molding, my second step is to run the wood I’ve prepared by planing through one of my Woodmaster set up as a molding machine.

Because Woodmaster’s big & heavy, fast & easy

Why did I choose the Woodmaster? It’s big, heavy duty, fast and easy to set up. I bought my first one, a Model 725, in the early ‘90s. I ended up with a lot of molding knives. I bought a second 725 and I set up several profiles in the cutterhead at the same time — I can cut several different molding patterns without changing cutters.

In a lifetime of building and renovating, Dale's obviously learned a thing or two about quality construction and tasteful design. Nice work!

Dale’s run literally miles of hardwood in 20 years

I do recommend Woodmaster’s Indexable Spiral Cutterhead. It’s well worth what you pay for it. And I definitely recommend using a bedboard like their Super Slick Poly Bedboard.

I don’t know any company that’s making a better machine. It’s very heavy duty and mine have lasted a long, long time. In 20 years of use, I’ve put literally miles and miles of hardwood through them.”

Canoes, Counters, Cabinets — THIS D-I-Y COUPLE IS UNSTOPPABLE

Here are two cedar canoes Chuck and Dale built. They built the one in the foreground with commercial cedar strips. They made their own strips for the one in the back. Why'd they start making their own? When they realized how much they were spending on cedar strips they got a Woodmaster Molder Planer and made their own.

Most people will NEVER understand why building things from scratch is so tremendously rewarding. “Build a canoe? Plane my own counter tops?” Most people would say, “Forget about it!”

But Chuck and Dale Phelps do understand. Not just WHY doing-it-yourself is so deeply satisfying; they also know just HOW to do it all, with big help from their Woodmaster Molder/Planer. They have a Woodmaster Drum Sander, too.

The Phelps made their kitchen cabinets of Monterey Cypress, and made the counter tops of Mesquite. Beautiful!

A canoe kit started it all…

Here’s how it all started. Years ago, Dale and I received a model canoe kit as a Christmas present. We built it, cedar strips and all, and thought, ‘Why not make a real, full sized canoe?’ She and I ended up building five full sized cedar strip canoes. As we built the first two, we saw we were spending a lot of money buying cedar strips. I decided I wanted to mill canoe strips from my own lumber and that’s when we got our 18” Woodmaster Molder/Planer.

I mill the wood for our canoes from scratch using white cedar deck planking. I plane it to 3/4″ thick, then cut it into 1/4″ thick strips on a bandsaw.

As of today, we’ve built five cedar strip canoes, the last three with our Woodmaster Molder/Planer. We made some for relatives and still own two of them. I made one for a fundraising auction at the University of Rochester — it brought in $5,000, the largest bid in the auction!

They built their new kitchen – counters, cabinets, more

Dale and I retired to northern California and bought a 900 square foot home. We’ve since tripled its size. As we were building the new kitchen, we decided to build the kitchen cabinets ourselves. We built them out of Monterey Cypress, a wood native to this area. I milled a lot of raw wood on my Molder/Planer and sanded it with my Drum Sander. Dale applied the finishes.

Serious do-it-yourselfers Chuck and Dale bought a 900 sq. ft. home in northern California. They tripled its size, built a beautiful new kitchen themselves, and turned it into a charming and relaxing retirement homeplace.

Cypress cabinets, mesquite counter tops

Then Dale and I started talking about counter tops. We didn’t want granite counters — if you drop a glass it breaks. We decided to make counters out of mesquite. It’s a pest tree in the south where huge areas are overgrown with mesquite. They just bulldoze it out. But it’s a great wood to work with and I found a woodworker who salvages, saws, and sells it. I bought some and ran it through my planer to get it all to uniform thickness.

We made about 60 lineal feet of counters a full 30″ wide. I glued up 15” wide slabs, put them through my Woodmster Molder/Planer, then did final smoothing on our Woodmaster Drum Sander. Then I joined the halves with biscuits. Dale finshed the tops with tung oil – the bottoms, too, so they wouldn’t cup.

“Inferior equipment will drive you crazy”

The Phelps' also makes items for sale. "This is for relaxation in retirement," says Chuck. "But if we make some money at it, that's OK, too."

I do lots of research before I buy tools and try to buy the best. Woodmaster equipment is obviously the best on

the market. You can’t get Woodmaster’s throat width on equipment from Home Depot.

charles cardI advise others to not skimp on inferior equipment. If you get a machine that doesn’t work well, it’ll drive you crazy. It’s simply a mistake to start with imprecise tools.

HE BOUGHT A WOODMASTER BY ACCIDENT then used it to start a profitable molding business

Meet woodworker, Dave McPherson, (left) and his workshop assistant, Colby Rojas. Working together, they turn out a ton of molding. "We've done 25% more business in the first three months of this  year than we did all last year," says Dave.

  Funny how things work out sometimes. California woodworker, David McPherson, always wanted a Woodmaster Molder/Planer. He ended up getting one without even realizing it. The rest of the story? He’s turned that “accidental” purchase into the mainstay of his thriving new business — making molding.

Estate sale bonanza

Several years ago, I went to an estate sale and bought the entire contents of a wood shop. When I got all the tools and equipment home, one machine looked very familiar. It turned out to be a 712 Woodmaster Molder/Planer — I’d always wanted one!

I read all the literature Woodmaster put out including their book, ‘How to Set Up and Run a Profitable Custom Molding Business’ on how to make money making molding. (Editor’s note: you can get your own copy FREE – click here and we’ll email you a copy. You’ll have it in seconds!)

How to sell your molding? Show samples

I took samples of my molding to a molding outlet and they started sending customers directly to me. I took my samples to a lumberyard and the same thing happened: they sent customers directly to me. I took samples to a big molding manufacturer. They don’t like to take molding orders for under 1,000 lineal feet so they, too, sent customers directly to me. It works out perfectly and I get several new customers a week.

(Editor’s note: While we chatted with Mr. McPherson, he got three calls that he just let ring. “Probably new customers calling,” he said.)

A customer told me, ‘Dave, please keep making molding. You’re the only one who makes what we need!’ He’s right: we make molding nobody else has or can make because nobody else has the molding knives. I’ve duplicated original molding in lots of Victorian homes in Sacramento, San Francisco, the San Joaquin Valley, Rio Vista, and many more towns and cities.

Dave, Colby, and the company truck. Note how Dave turned his truck into a mobile advertisement for his business. It gives his company name, his phone number, web address, and tells precisely what he does! Pretty clever, Dave.

I go to a hardwood lumber yard, pick up lumber, bring it back to my shop, and turn it into molding. I have a young helper — he and I can put out a lot of product.

1 pass thru Woodmaster adds 50% value

Rough-cut boards are about $2 a board foot. I turn them into molding with my Woodmaster and charge $3 a board foot. Of course, molding’s sold by the lineal foot so I convert lineal feet back into board feet and add a dollar per board foot. (Editor’s note: here’s one way to convert linear feet to board feet.)

I supply molding to a lot of contractors and my prices are not a problem. When I sell to homeowners, they’ll sometimes say the prices seem high. I explain this is custom work and they always understand.

Expanding, needs bigger Woodmaster — drum sander, too

Business is very busy and I want to expand my shop. I got the Woodmaster first, then I bought the Pro Pack to go with it. Then I started making molding. I’m looking at a 2,400 sq. ft. shop space now. I want to get into curved molding because it’s exciting and interesting to make. And there’s good money in it. I expect it’ll double or triple my business. I want to get a bigger, 25” Woodmaster 725, and I have my eye on a 38” Woodmaster Drum Sander. But I’ll probably get their biggest 50” drum sander because that’s what I always do — get the biggest and best.

I really like the Woodmaster. First, it’s American made. Second, there are no plastic parts — it’s all metal. Third, the Woodmaster holds up. They’re built to last and you just don’t find that any more.

“Woodmaster’s dust collector’ll suck the T-shirt off your back!”

I’ve got Woodmater’s ‘Big Max’ Double Bag Dust Collector, too. I’d recommend that to anybody. I had a single-bagger and it didn’t work well. I looked at Woodmaster’s 1-bag collector and decided I should get the double. It sucks up everything — it’ll suck the T-shirt off your back!

Dave (right) and Colby are ready to grow Dave's Custom Molding business — and it's happening right before their eyes.

What Woodmaster’s doing is fantastic. Their free business plan book is the best motivational book I’ve ever seen, just fantastic. I made my helper read it, and I’ve gone back and re-read it several times myself. And the people at Woodmaster are great, too. They even laugh at my jokes!”

“WOODMASTER’S VALUE? BIG SHOP CAPABILITIES IN MY SMALL SHOP SPACE.”

Small-shop custom woodworker says, “My Woodmaster gives me key woodworking capabilities in just 9 sq. ft. Surface planer, drum sander, molding machine, gang rip saw.”  paul grab big

We recently videotaped an interview with woodworker, Paul Mayer, a skilled custom woodworker, woodworking writer, and Woodmaster Molder/Planer owner. We found Paul’s perspective very interesting — how the Woodmaster adds value to custom woodworking. Watch video

Paul told us, “Woodmaster has always advertised its ability to make molding. I make very little molding. Yet my Woodmaster is very important in my work.”

“I’m a custom woodworker.” Paul explained. “I got my Woodmaster as a surface planer. Then I realized it could convert to a high-performance drum sander in the same small footprint. That, plus being able to make molding of the same wood as my woodworking projects, and gang-rip boards, gives me big shop capabilities in my small shop space — 4 machines in just 9 square feet.”

“I get ‘big shop’ capabilities in my small shop space.

“Most serious woodworkers have invested in some type of surface planer, which provides a crucial role in preparing stock for a quality project. Not nearly as many have made the investment in drum sanders, however, because they simply occupy too much space. Disciplined woodworkers are careful about adding stationary tools without first challenging themselves to come up with a more creative solution.

Set the Woodmaster to full throttle and it will quickly power through and dimension the gnarliest stock, removing up to 1/8” per pass. But when you dial down the feed rate to effectively increase the cuts per inch, the Woodmaster quickly separates itself from other stationary planers by delivering a superior surface finish.

But when you dial down the feed rate to effectively increase the cuts per inch, the Woodmaster quickly separates itself from other stationary planers by delivering a superior surface finish.

When you consider the footprint of a dedicated drum sander, plus the space necessary for infeed and outfeed, the tool can consume as much as 90 square feet of valuable shop space. With the Woodmaster Molder/Planer, woodworkers not only get a great planer and drum sander in a single footprint, but they also gain the ability to produce custom molding.”

“Woodmaster’s a ‘man-sized’ planer with infinitely variable speed.”

“Many of us start out with a portable planer which serves our needs up to a point. But when you start to buy rough lumber, need wider capacity, or just plain want to step up to a more solid machine, the Woodmaster Molder/Planer is a great choice. The unique infinite-variable speed control affords the machine a level of finesse that is generally not associated with a surface planer.

“Flatten stock with a convenient drum sander.”

Swapping from planer to drum sander takes about ten minutes and is well worth the time when considering the quality, efficiency and space savings delivered by the integrated drum sander.

Swapping from planer to drum sander takes about ten minutes and is well worth the time when considering the quality, efficiency and space savings delivered by the integrated drum sander.

With a Woodmaster, you can enjoy the benefits of a drum sander, including dead flat panels, end grain sanding, and reduced hand sanding. It only takes about ten minutes to convert the Woodmaster from planer to drum sander, or back again, which is a modest time investment given the benefits received.”

“I get molding and ripping capabilities, too.”

“The Woodmaster Molder/Planer makes it easy and cost effective to produce quality custom moldings with grain and color that match the rest of the furniture or cabinet project.”

“Quality tools produce quality projects.”

“Well-built tools bring out the best in skilled craftsmen, and everything about the Woodmaster exudes quality. This level of precision and quality is the reason why Woodmaster Planer/Molders provide owners with years of reliable service.”

“Woodmaster’s made in the USA.”

“Woodmaster offers the only planer in its class that is built in the USA. The Woodmaster story is as American as it gets: a family owned business that produces a gem of Yankee ingenuity, built in American’s heartland by skilled US workers.”

“Unparalleled customer service, too.”

“When you call Woodmaster you talk to patient, knowledgeable professionals. With a high quality tool such as this it’s rare that you’d need support. But with five-year warranty and world-class service, I know that Woodmaster has my back.”
