I don’t know if you noticed but our Lumberjock Todd Clippinger has hit the big time in the ‘Better Homes & Gardens’ ‘Wood Magazine’. Have a look at the November 2012 issue.
Don’t tell anyone but Grumpy also had his idea published in the October issue. LOL

I saw that today. Congrats Todd. I did miss the “Grumpy idea” though :(. I’ll go back and look for it.

A ‘Buffer Sleeve’ what a Great idea, Grumpy, that’s a lot of surface area and relatively inexpensive.

A very nice, tip filled article, featuring Todd Clippinger. I like the Space saving Clamp Rack.
Congratulations Todd.

Todd has some great experience to share.

I’ll look for the Grumpy tip. I’m sure it’s worthwhile.

Hey Grumpy – thanks for making mention and congrats on the published tip.

I did not realize the issue was mailed out already. Wood Magazine sent me a copy but I have not looked at it yet. I just got home from working in Ohio.

On the trip home I stopped into the Wood Magazine office and had lunch with the editors. Good times!

Then I stopped in Omaha and visited with LumberJock member Doug Bordner. He & his wife are super nice people. More good times and a great dinner with fine company. Life is good here;)

More later I just got in from meeting with the curator of the Museum of the Rockies. I have a lot of work to get ready for a fine woodworking exhibition!

Congratulations on being published in a top magazine. Sounds like you are getting some good work and some
traveling in. Sounds like a road trip to the Bozeman museum might be on the agenda soon. Thank you for
sharing your work and knowledge with us. I am still trying to get my copy of your gun to work properly.
Now I am going to have to buy the Wood magazines and read the articles

Bluepine38 – Yes you are correct about the museum. I just went yesterday to meet with the curator so we could work out the details of how to hang my prairie chandelier that I will have on display.

Do you know Andy Chidwick from Stevensville? He will be showing there too. Scott Morrison will also be showing.

The key to the guns working is a strong imagination;)

Congrats Todd, I opened and browsed through my copy the other day and saw your picture/tips.
