My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1727: Change

04-29-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are a few things we can be certain of in this world. We have all heard the saying that "the only thing that we can be sure of is death and taxes", but as I get older, I find that something in that quote was left out. . . change.While some of us are uncomfortable with change, others thrive on it. I am not sure where my feelings lie in this equation, but I think they are somewhere in the middle.Change can be scary, as many times change is accompanied by the 'unknown'. Bu...

What’s happening in the shop for November 26, 2010 . Very busy in the shop. Black Friday when most people are gearing up for Christmas, we are stopping our orders. With a 4-5 week back log, there is no other way to fit things into the schedule. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at or Watch us live:

choosing what is right for you #6: Jigs. Jigs, and more Jigs.

05-04-2016 09:36 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 4 comments »

There is no question about it, ‘at some point during our trek into the world of wood working we are going to need some sort of jig, whether it is a temporary one or a permanent go to Jig. Of course if you google it, you no doubt will get flooded with every type of jig imaginable, go to you tube and you find find countless video’s to build all sorts of nifty jigs. In my wood working most of my jigs are temporary jigs. Pending on what you your self are doing you may need more than o...

Prometheus Transformed #3: Belated update

12-10-2010 06:27 AM by thewoodartist | 3 comments »

With the month of November devoted to NaNoWriMo, my time in the shop has been limited lately. Nevertheless, I have managed to get a bit more done. Prometheus is a somewhat military guy, so his “robot” facade includes some typical military images. For example, he has participated in a number of famous battles and campaigns. Of course they were back in the early Greek days, but nonetheless, he was there. As befitting his experience, his “chest” includes a rather i...

An Introduction to Andy Chidwick~Fine Furniture Maker

12-24-2010 05:51 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 14 comments »

I am always excited to meet up with another woodworker and especially another pro. The conversation seems to go to a whole other level, especially when both of us are equally passionate about the same things. Those things would be woodworking, design, and sharing the knowledge with other woodworkers. Last night was just about as good as it can get when Andy Chidwick stopped by with his family at dinner time. He is an excellent craftsman, designer, and he is also passionate about sharing th...

Slow Days at the Shop. #12: I broke my old dunlop utility vice.

05-16-2016 07:54 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

I kinda want to blame this on my wife. But we all know that she has not been out in my shop pounding on things with hammers. I am not sure when I broke it, but I have a good idea how, because I am always out in my shop pounding on things with hammers. I am kind of bummed to see that I broke my vice. It is a good 3-1/2 inch dunlop vice. More importantly, it sits on the bench at the end of my shop in line with my table saw blade and the top of the jaws rest 3/16 inch below the top ...

Bandsaw Series #2: Something better to laminate the boards

01-17-2011 04:56 AM by Paul Pomerleau | 7 comments »

I recently just made my first band saw box and one of the problems that I had was trying to get all the boards glued together without any small gaps between them, specifically around the edges.I realize that I was using softwood (pine and cedar) which probably doesn’t help much, but I must have used every clamp at my disposal and old planks to sandwich it together while using all the force I could muster, and I still had tiny gaps around the edges.I’m new at the woodworking game a...
