Overflow is Back!

What is Overflow?

Almost a year ago, I started my Overflow program to give away woodworking stuff I no longer used to followers of my blog.  It was going strong for a while and I gave away a lot of good stuff including a:

I had given away nine lots before I stopped tripping over things I no longer used.

How Does Overflow Work?

Right now, my big project is cleaning my shop and you can bet your last dollar that I’m unearthing some stuff I haven’t seen (or used) for years.  Want a chance to win some of it? Here’s how it works:

  1. I will post a picture and brief description of the item or group of items up for grabs. There will be some wood, hand tools, power tools, accessories, random shop stuff, and even a clamp or two.  Most tools will be in good-to-excellent shape;
  2. Comment if you want it!  I suggest you subscribe to this blog so you get notified when I post something.  If you want the item(s), leave a comment on that particular post and let me know if you can pick it up or if you need it shipped.  (I will ship once my PayPal account is happy.); then
  3. When the deadline to enter has passed, I will submit the names of those interested into a Random Chooser and let the program draw a winner.  I will announce the winner in the comments section of the Overflow post on my blog and contact them to arrange a pick-up time or shipping details. If the first person chosen changes their mind, the Random Chooser will select another name.

Why am I doing this?

I’m giving stuff away because I would rather help some fellow woodworkers than try to sell it.  This is less hassle and more rewarding.  I enjoy interacting with my readers and helping others get further in their woodworking.

I would love to see more subscribers to my blog.  Besides having awesome giveaways of quality stuff, I do some pretty cool woodwork, wouldn’t you agree?  Please subscribe to my blog using the widget at the bottom of any page or in the right-hand column of my main blog page.  You’ll receive notice of what I’m putting up for grabs as well as when I publish a regular blog post.

The ultimate purpose of Overflow is to get this stuff out of my shop (and into yours), so please, tell your friends.

    • Martin,

      Not to encourage you, but sawdust is great for cleaning up liquid spills and I’ve used it for just that on multiple occasions. First item up for grabs.. a box of sawdust! Just kidding.

  1. Good idea. I cannot say that I have a ton of woodworking tools. But I do the same that you do and give away what I don’t use. I have a large amount of electrical and mechanics tools from my former and current job. I often bring the old ones to good will. Nice post

    • Paul-Marcel,

      No – the Bridge City SD-6 Spider Divider didn’t make it into the Overflow box. The only spiders in the box are the eight-legged variety (and no black widows with a poor sense of direction).

  2. try using different colored sawdust for inlay just cut out a image and then go to town filling it with paduke or walnut then you can have a red or black line through a oak project.

I would be delighted if you left a comment!
