I’m a little late getting this up for my LJ brethren since it has been up on my site for a week now. Sorry about that guys. Here I build the drawer and add my faux cockbead to the front. You will often find a scratched bead like this on b...

My podcast and blog The Renaissance Woodworker are in full swing now and I am putting out new episodes each week. The podcast is a sampling of projects and techniques from my shop. As an amateur who occasionally sells some things at craft shows or on a commissioned basis I refuse to be pigeon holed into a style of work. Hence the name Renaissance Woodworker. I am game to try any technique or historical style and I welcome any ideas for show ideas or techniques you would like me to highlight.
In the fall of 2010 I launched The Hand Tool School which is a subscription web site designed to help woodworkers learn to work entirely by hand. While I don't expect anyone to drop power tools altogether I do feel that learning to work by hand will make you a better woodworker because it gives you options and alternative methods of work when a power tool just won't work. The school is broken into individual lessons, practice exercises, and applied projects that members can view online or download at anytime. Every six months we will go through 10-12 lessons and wrap up with a final project. You can learn more about this venture on my site. Just look under the Hand Tool School tab on the nav bar.

Galoot nirvana is achieved. The video clip is a bit rough, but it was taken with my iPhone in a hurry before more guests came into the shop. Check it out. Shannon
I am honored and blessed to be starting a traditional hand tool woodworking apprenticeship at the Steppingstone Museum just outside Havre de Grace, Maryland this weekend. The museum is a recreation of a late 19th century rural farm complete with ...
