Thanks for all the new member welcoming messages. Just a few words about me. My shop has been in a box for the past three years so I don’t have any shop pictures. I am also in the process of finishing my basement so I can get back to my woodworking. I am new to wood turning and bought a lathe and a few turning tools so that turning will be my main focus when I am able to get back to a shop. I have turned a few pens and a couple of peppermills in the interim which I have given to fam...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #4: The Next Section

02-10-2008 07:48 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 17 comments »

One Section Finished I finished this section of wall the other day and the trim. After that I pushed all the shop “furniture” back against the wall. This opened up the center of the shop again so that I could clear the next section of wall to be finished. I can’t always work corner to corner because I waited until I put too much crap in the shop to finish the walls. I did, however, already have 3 walls finished as you can see in my workshop posting. Now that I...

Pen Turners' Swap #3: One small step for pen turners...

The box is on the move again! A short trip this time from Karson to FrankA. Frank received the box yesterday but hasn’t had a chance to go through it – some story about -5 degrees and a dead oil burner. We’ll work with him some on getting his priorities in order before the next trade… :-) The box is ‘chilling’ in New York right now, here’s where we’ve been so far: Stay tuned as the drama unfolds and we answer gripping questions like...

Scrap book cabinet #4: Drawers finally done on one side

05-22-2008 12:05 AM by jjohn | 2 comments »

Haven’t had opportunity to get back to the shop for a couple of weeks now. First time today was able to spend about 6 hrs. there. Cleaned up the shop first thing. Everything was everywhere and no place to cut wood or anything else for that matter. So, after some time cleaning up all the tools and such started back on the drawers. I said in the last entry that I was going to dovetail all the drawers. Well that didn’t happen. Had to use finished plywood on the sides. Couldn’...

I got a air conditioner put into place but in in NC our temps have been running in the High 90’s for the last week or so, So basically its not doing alot of good. I have been unable to actually get out and do any work due to the unbareable heat. I finally got the main wireing ran out of the shop and tied into the main breaker box. I also got the h...

My woodworing ideas and tips #8: Hand planes and their many uses

07-12-2008 09:01 PM by Betsy | 15 comments »

So I’ve been sitting here thinking and thinking and thinking about woodworking. An amazing hobby to be sure and certainly a great way to make a living if you so chose. But honestly, it’s the pits as far as a hobby when you find yourself sidelined and unable to use your tools. They just sit there mocking you, calling your name, making noise to get your attention and yet to no avail. You can’t use them. Well at least I can’t – not just now. Come this Fall though, w...

Taking Another Journey

08-03-2008 12:17 AM by jockmike2 | 6 comments »

Yes folks care or no, I’m off to Houghton Lake to see if I can find some new wood specimens or catch a walleye or two. Whichever comes first. I will be doing both. Karson, you and Dick keep these guys in line as I won’t have a laptop with me this time and I’ll really be in the sticks. I just talked to the neighbors up there and they say they spotted a bear recently, so I’m taking the hound and packing the ak47 just in case. Good luck to all in the contest, but I know G...
