”A Wood Dreamers Nightmare” ....coming from the woods into this place of state of mind, where my fingers are given to the rhyme of allowing free rhythm, as they now splay across this keyboard, now shouting words out in this arena of a woodworkers paradise, where some to many gather, after the fashion of like minded minds…. —-and then to whom shall i offer the thanks to, that i can be considered to dwell with those of like minded minds, i am the misfit in a world ...
I’d like to inform you that I’ve decided to discontinue the updates on the original LJ Site Blog. All references to the Site blog have been replaced with the reference to my personal LJ blog. I found it much easier to write the site updates and news on my personal blog here. Another benefit is that you can comment on them in the same way as you comment on other LJ blogs. Note, that the transition should be smooth to all of the original Site Blog RSS subscribers.

After reading sawhorse’s blog about his workshop I have found that I can use some advice on my own shop build. Hopefully I will start the new shop in the very near future. I currently use woodworking as a side job with the hope of moving it to full time in about 3 years. My question is do you think that a 20’x40’ building would be big enough to handle a full time shop (that is the size I am thinking right now).What advice can you give on dust collection? would an outside uni...

Ok so all this talk about Planes and shooting boards I thought I would throw something in as well. I just recently found a plane in my parent’s shed, my guess is that it was in my grandfather’s toolbox at one point. From what I can tell all the parts are there. There is no manufacturer on it but it has some stickers still left almost intact. I tried to get a good shot of them. I am more then likely going to pick up a couple of books on plane use as I do not see myself b...
’Argaz Well here you have it….’Argaz (box), not just any box, but the starting of an ‘argaz….and so my Hebrew comes forth in the creating of this wooden piece of coffered ‘wood art’. Where does one start, when one goes for an idea to create and what is the process of gathering a design of images, that have been running freely throughout the airspace of the universe, since before even Abraham was told to number the stars in the heavens? And so I ...
