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.

Actually I hate to admit it but I did do it the strip method as well. I thought the samething, if I cut each peice out seperately I won’t be able to glue it fast enough and It will turn out alot harder to make. I do like that ninth peice added to help make a better match. I should give that a try. I found that moveing the peices around a bit also helped with matching the peices so that they wouldn’t have gaps.
