It has been a L-O-N-G and C-O-L-D Winter here in New Hampshire!!Perhaps we didn’t break single day records, but it has been consistently cold since last October, which dealt a crippling blow to my enthusiasm for Woodworking… The Temperature in the Basement Shop here hovered around 40° for most of that time, too cold for whatever determination I possess!But the Calendar pages turn, and Good Old Sol continues to ride higher in the Sky, with inevitable results… It is fin...
The slight hesitation is the router leaving a tab between the work and the outside… so the piece won’t wobble around when cut…
Well, its Victoria Day here in the colonies. And for a wood nerd like me and my buddies that can only mean one thing… wood scouting. Yup me and two pals hopped into my car and went for a drive. Let me set the scene….. It all started this past Tuesday, when I called my dealer and was informed that they had sold their assets to another dealer, and could not sell me anything. I liked my dealer, they were a wholesaler who sold to guys like me, one or two board kinda guys. The ...
Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #13: What's with the 'leftovers' pile?
So, I could include a picture but I don’t need to. This is an ongoing blog about redoing my shop after having made it 5+ years ago to be more functional and not as ‘pretty looking’. I have noticed one thing. The left overs pile seems to always be inevitable. Am I the only one who is plagued by this? When I first did the shop I had two or three rubber tubs of leftovers. Stuff that I should pick over, probably won’t throw out, but probably would find little use for. T...
Using the panorama feature of my iPhone 5….Four different views… You can check out bigger pics here
So, lots of progress. Where did we leave off? Something like this… (its getting better in terms of organization) Finally it was time to call in the big guns. Todd Clippinger has been begging me for some woodworking lessons ever since he found out about me so I finally let him come all the way over from Montana to California to work with me and pick up some mad skills ;) Well we ripped up the place and did a ton of electrical work, installed a window, moved a door, and he a...

My Ghost of a Past ....and so yes, for any and all that have been reading here and are waiting for more on the series “Journeys into the Joints of Wood Joineries” ....these articles, will be forthcoming from time to time. I am thinking of how to approach this subject, however I am no expert and not much of a technical writer and really dis-like writing on subjects that press me into the thinking confines of a box…. There was a time when I thought and lived in a box, I rec...
