Taj Mahal, Take a Giant Step. I believe this is a Monkees tune, but I think Taj gives it a little more “feeling”

At bit of Sam Maloof trivia here (at least to the best of my recollection).

01-08-2011 05:14 PM by NH_Hermit | 6 comments »

I first met Sammy (this was the name I recall everyone calling him) when I was about 9 or 10 years old. We were living in southern California where my father was the pastor a small church, and Sammy’s sister-in-law (sister of Alfreda Maloof) was a sometime congregant of that church. In today’s world, we’d probably call her part of the “C and E crowd” (Christmas and Easter), but perhaps more than that as I recall she and my family were friendly enough for my older brother to get a part time ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #219: Taking Care of Business

01-08-2011 03:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Well, today will be short as I am already late out of the gate . . . It seems that I never find myself short of things to do. I suppose that is part of owning my own business. Last night I had an order in the middle of the night and the customer brought to my attention that on his receipt that he received in the confirmation email, it only showed one item. He had ordered three items and forwarded the receipt to me and I thought it was strange because even though only one item showed on...

My new Roubo #7: Continuing to work on the legs, 1 step at a time

01-08-2011 07:50 AM by JasonD | 0 comments »

This past week was very busy for me and I only managed an hour a night at best in the shop. I spent most of this early evening cutting a few sheets 3/4” plywood and putting it down as flooring in my attic over the new insulation I put down last weekend. I spent most of my shop time after climbing out of the attic cleaning up and sharpening a few plane blades (just got my first waterstones in from UPS today). I didn’t want to close up for the night without getting at least somet...

Delta Porter Cable being sold .... AGAIN.

01-08-2011 07:17 AM by mike85215 | 13 comments »

I went to the local Woodcraft store tonight to look at the Delta 15” planer. The salesman there explained that the General machine is actually a better planer and that while they did not know who but they did know that Black and Decker is selling the Delta Porter Cable line. I came home and while it took some work I did find that it is indeed true! They are being sold to a Taiwanese company called TOTY.Before going into the store I was pretty much locked down on getting the Delta, but n...
