November 2007 Newsletter

Brooks Woodworks Newsletter                                                                         November  2007 ____________________________________________________________________________________


November is a month for giving thanks.  And thank goodness the month is over!  First, I must apologize for the lateness of this newsletter.  After Thanksgiving, I caught a cold and was out of commission for over a week.  Then I resumed working on the TV stand I mentioned last month, and all of a sudden it is December.  And to think, Christmas is almost here.

As I mentioned, I am still working on the TV stand for a customer.  Building it has taken some time, but between problems matching the colors, as well as getting sick, I did not complete it by Thanksgiving.  Luckily, they have been very understanding and patient.  I have stained the cabinet, and am beginning to varnish it.  A little more work on the doors, a few more coats of varnish, and this project will be wrapped up.

At least it will be done by Christmas (as I cross my fingers again). 
As the old saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men....

On a special note, I do have some 2008 calendars left.  If you are interested in a free calendar, please send me your name and mailing address. This offer is limited to the first 30 people only, so send your request to and I will mail you a calendar.

Shop Notes

This month has been dedicated to building the TV stand.  I expect to have it completed by Christmas, with pictures posted as well.

As for my additional projects, I have not been able to work on these items so far.  I will try to squeeze in a couple of small projects before the end of the year, probably some boxes cutting boards, or maybe some candle holders. After New Year's, things will be picking up again.

Keep watching this newsletter for updates on all of these projects.


No new projects were added this month.  However, if you missed the Chess Board, Shoe Bench and DVD Box , all posted on the web site.

Be sure to check our web site for pictures of all the items built to date.


By now I had hoped to have several Christmas gift items completed.  However, as they say, life got in the way.  First, I need to complete the TV stand.  Next, I will decide on my next round of projects to complete.  I have a ton of items I want to build, but will focus on customer orders first.

If you have any additional product recommendations, send your suggestions to  Hopefully, I can build some of these dream items in 2007.


As always, we like to thank you for reading my newsletter. If you have any suggestions on items you would like to see added to the newsletter, please let me know at

Until next month, stay well and enjoy.
