Lumberjocks: what a bargain!!! DONATE!

2286 days ago by BarryW | 8 comments »

All my life I wanted to work with wood. But no, I did other work to please people who had other ideas for me.There was even a time I had a great start on a shop complete with 16 inch jointer…20 plus year ago. Not until the last 3 years have I realized what I’ve wanted to do…what I’ve always enjoyed all my life…making useful and beautiful things from wood. My education prepared me for a career in radio. A B.A. from a respected university with a solid broadcast...

I’m about to head out the door for a dinner tonight with the three fellows mentioned above and a class with Chris and Tom on Saturday and Sunday at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking. The talk/dinner tonight is about the tool making process and then the class is about using and tuning up hand planes. I will post about them both when I get back. Maybe I will see one of you there?!

My Son.

2286 days ago by pyromedic602 | 10 comments »

Hello everyone. I have been gone for a few days due to being in the hospital with my son. I have always cherished the time I get to spend with him but the last few days have been slightly different. He will typically want to play with daddy but let mommy rock him or lay down with him when it is time to sleep. While in the hospital he wanted nothing to do with his mommy or nana, all he wanted was to be eld by his daddy. I can not explain how this made me feel. I would have changed places with ...

Woodworking Knowledge #3: Etching Brasswork from Using Photocopies of Anything!

2286 days ago by flink | 2 comments »

Hi There! I for one, really like the way brass looks with a rich background of mahogany or dark oak. I also love engraved brasswork. This morning as I drank my morning six-pack of diet coke, I was checking my regulars and came across a link to a person who does steampunk stuff and had a procedure to do brass etchings of anything you can photocopy. It’s relatively simple, and can be done with materials you can get at the borgs. Below is the photocopy “negative” (le...

My Tools #4: The Tools I'm Most Proud Of

2286 days ago by Eric | 8 comments »

After talking about the most embarrassing tools I own, I thought it would be good to get my mind off of these purchases by talking about my favorite tools in the shop. Feel free to add yours in the comments, or on your own blog (and post the link in the comments). 3. My Irwin chisels. From what I hear, Irwin chisels haven’t lost much of the original quality that their predecessor Marples provided. And I love ‘em. Use ‘em all the time. The best thing? If I ever do run out ...
