Brooks Woodworks Newsletter                                                               July 2006

Welcome to the July edition of the Brooks Woodworks Newsletter.

We have been having a heat wave lately in Turlock. The last few days, the mornings have started out over 80 degrees. The highs have been above 105, and not much change is expected for the next few days. The shop has been quite warm as well, usually 90-95 degrees during the day. So today, I am cooling off and taking a break inside to catch you up on some of the latest happenings here.

Shop Notes

First, the Bench Chest has been completed. This Oak and Oak plywood construction is now providing much needed storage and seating in the bedroom. You can find pictures of it in the Photo Gallery .

Next up on our list, we are working on some additional furniture projects. These include a different styled bench chest, as well as a quilt rack. These are currently in the design stage, with production scheduled to begin in early August. We will also be designing and building a set of nested tables in the near future.


We still have the introductory pricing on our Carry-All and Spatulas. We also are offering a finished version of our Carry-All as well. See below for details.


As our customers, your feedback is very important to us. We did receive a couple of suggestions for new items on our site.

The first suggestion was to include finished items as well as unfinished. That we can do right away. If you are interested in a finished Carry-All, we will add it to your order for a special price. Currently, we will finish the Carry-All in Shellac or Urethane for just $3.00 more. Just add the code FIN300 to your order form when you send it in.

The second suggestion was to include cutting boards as a new item. If you are interested, we can design a cutting board to fit your needs. Please send your request to , so we can follow up on your specifications.

The third suggestion was having more turned items available on our web site. Once we complete a few of our current projects, we will work on adding some wooden bowls to our selection.

The last item is actually a request from us. Please send us recommendations and requests on products you would like to see offered. These can be either one time items, or offered on an ongoing basis. We will do our best to add these to our web site.


Well, as the temperature climbs over 100 again today, it is nice to be inside. It gives us a chance to make the latest updates to our web site, as well as complete this edition of the newsletter. But, tomorrow it is back to the shop. After all, we have people waiting for their new items.

See you again next month.
