New ways to Complete Purchases at Evenfall Studios.

In addition to the shopping cart processing we offer on our website which includes PayPal, We have recently added a non-PayPal credit/debit card processor to help our clients complete their purchases at Evenfall Studios. This is good news for both our clients and for us, because it offers new purchasing options that we haven’t been able to offer you before. We are excited to share this news with you. But first, here’s a little backstory.

For the most part, a very large player in purchase processing on the Internet is PayPal. PayPal not only has its own function of placing your money that you load into an account at PayPal, for the purposes of funding your purchase, but they also are an online credit card processor. However, sometimes the rules that PayPal uses are not a good fit for the way everyone would prefer to transact business.

Over the years, we have had a number of clients bring to our attention, that PayPal is not their favorite purchase processor. In fact, a number of our clients have expressed their reservations about PayPal, for a number of different reasons and experiences, based on rules and practices that PayPal has had down through the years, which has had the effect of causing some people to close their PayPal accounts and choose not to make payments that are processed through PayPal.

This does not necessarily make PayPal a bad payment processing partner, but we understand why some of our clients have reservations based on their perceptions and experiences, and completely respect that. While we are going to continue to offer PayPal processing as an option for purchases here on the Evenfall Studios website, we kept our eye on the horizon for additional ways to help our clients complete their purchases with us.

We listened to what our clients wished we could do. We went shopping for the right partner to help us with this. Finally, we have found a card processor who can provide us the ability to not only process card purchases via telephone, but also in person with card chip and swipe capabilities, and the merchant costs and fees are commensurate with our perceived value of the service.

So here is what we can offer clients who wish to make purchases at Evenfall Studios:

  1. Our website still works as it always has – as a complete catalog of our tools and accessories, which can be purchased with our shopping cart buttons on each product page. Using our online shopping cart will allow you the choice of purchasing with PayPal. Alternatively, Credit Card Processing online is accomplished via PayPal for Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover and Debit Cards with those logos.

  2. If you would prefer to place your order with us using NON-PayPal card processing, or would like to discuss your woodworking tool needs with us prior to purchasing – Via Telephone, we are happy to help. Please Contact Us via email with your best phone contact information, outlining what you’d like to discuss and that you would like us to call you back. We will try and call you back at a best time for you during our business hours which are 8 AM – 4:30 PM Pacific time, US. Monday through Friday. If you need a callback outside of business hours, we can usually arrange that too if needed.

  3. We realize that some woodworkers would like to discuss tools and applications, or customizations they may wish to have made to their tool(s) before they buy and would like to call the order in. We get that, and now we can place your orders with us via telephone. We hope this will help you in your efforts to buy the tooling for your shop that will meet your needs! If this is your want, please email us and let us know. We will set up a callback time to help you!

  4. Our new processor enables us to run Cards via Chip, Swipe or Phone. We can process Credit or Debit Cards with the VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover and JCB Logos. We can also process Gift Cards with those logos, and are open to helping you make your purchases with more than one card if that helps. We can also take your Card Payments if you reside or are outside of the United States. To avoid paying international calling rates, we can be contacted via WhatsApp or perhaps Skype for secure conversations with no calling charges.

We hope that you find this new information helpful. We want to make purchasing as easy as possible and look forward to hearing from you soon here at Evenfall Studios!

Woodworking Tools for the Left Handed Woodworker. (Righties Too!)

We have heard from many left handed clients, thanking us for our attention to left handed tooling. We have offered nearly every right handed tool we make in a left handed version since day one, as well as with the introduction of each new tool we offer, and for the same price, either hand.

Call it a mission statement if you like, but I personally like helping woodworkers create, while achieving their personal best levels of craftsmanship no matter which hand they favor. Our tools are designed to help create fine craftsmanship with either hand, no matter which side you favor. We make a number of woodworking tools and jigs that are purpose-made to help unlock the creative process, making the tools you may already have, work even better and more accurately, by giving both you and your tools as much capability as we can in the process.

New Products for 2011, 12, 13 and so on…

And not just 2014, but 2015, 16 and so forth!You get the idea, New products are always in the works and you can find them from here!

Over the past several years of building shooting boards, our product line has grown through thoughts, ideas and suggestions. We have expanded to over a dozen shooting board models and have developed many accessories for them. We continue to work on ways to expand our shooting board’s capabilities. This helps bring more woodworking capability, and better outcomes to bear for the woodworkers who use them.

During this same time, we have developed other tools and jigs for helping take woodworkers further in other aspects of the craft. Why? well because; The lyfe so short, the craft so long to lerne, Th’ assay so hard, so sharpe the conquering. Geoffrey Chaucer from: The Assembly of Fowles. We listen to what woodworkers talk about when they discuss what they feel is difficult for them, or could be more efficient, and what they wished were easier. Then we try to conquer those issues, and make a tool or jig that will address it, and make working wood easier for woodworkers. What this means sometimes is that our tools are not completely traditional, but they do aim high to give you better outcomes in your woodworking endeavors.

Many woodworkers say they want to spend less time making jigs. Some say that they don’t have enough spare time, others don’t have the tools. We listened. Free time these days for most people is limited and precious, so when there is time for woodworking, most people want to maximize their outcomes making great cabinetry and furnishings.

Using Cross Dowels for Knockdown Joinery

The big thing about using steel cross dowels for knock down construction is that your layout must be absolutely meticulous. I have, and continue to use these a lot in jig construction, but there are a lot of other great applications. cross_dowels.jpg

While a lot can be done with these, a common application is for use in workbench base construction. Real life happens. People move, circumstances change. Sometimes the dream shop in the basement relocates to a garage or an outbuilding. Many of us cannot build a bench with the certainty of knowing it will never need to be easily transported to elsewhere at some future point. This makes the use of steel or brass cross dowels a wonderful option. Continue Reading »
