Latest news from Vern's Wood Goods...

Vern, at age 82, is building for the future and scaling up his production by adding a state of the art Laguna 14|12 bandsaw to his shop. Vern explains; "Last year during the holiday shopping season I had a hard time keeping up with the rising demand for my products, so I needed to do something to improve my shop-time productivity. The powerful Laguna 14|12 will help me keep my inventory up during busy stretches, and I'll use it to build some of my more popular items such as the 'Dorothy's Pie Server', the 'Coin Operated Bottle Opener', as well as my long handled shoehorn.  Never in my life did I expect to own a tool as nice as this bandsaw, and I am grateful to all of my customers who give me a reason to add this to my shop!"
