This was posted this earlier on my blog The Folding Rule Show. The video highlights construction details of The Cooper House and some of Todd’s furniture.

I just had the distinct pleasure of a cyber visit with Todd Clippinger, a talented designer and craftsman. I met Todd through one of the woodworking forums . . . well, the best woodworking forum; Lumberjocks.com! A first for me last night, but typical of Todd’s many talents and character, he pushed my technical envelope because our visit was via iChat. We had a great conversation. He was exactly as I imagined from previous Lumberjocks interactions.

Stay tuned for a future installment on this interview series. Todd has agreed for me to stitch together a series of interviews. This will be done slowly as it is very memory intensive and I will need to be respectful of Todd’s time. I also do not plan on posting Episode #2 until I have completed a demo video for Ezee-Feed.

Smooth production on the video. Todd, that is some amazing work! “Craftsman” describes you to a tee! I really like your hand drawn details…you have a distinctive style to your drawings that you just don’t see much in the “AutoCAD” produced world of drawings today!

Really enjoyable video and tour. Todd, if you ever get to Louisiana and IF I EVER win the lottery I am going to commission you to build one of those for me. It is beautiful workmanship.

I have to work on better technical drawings, but I want to learn Sketchup too. I am self taught and so what you see is it. I have done a lot of my work from “sketches on a napkin.” In the end I am a lot better craftsman than sketch artist.

Thanks for the hard work Dave, and for making my work look great. I picked up a manual on iMovie and iDVD last night. I will have to work on some video for LJ. Your presentation gave me some ideas for making a client presentation.
