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:
- Ridgid Air Filter;
- Veritas Scraper Holder;
- Makita 1/3 Sheet Sander;
- Lee Valley Dovetail Saw; and
- Saw set.
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:
- 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;
- 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
- 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.
