So where are the woodworking T.V. shows?

10-02-2010 01:22 AM by Stevinmarin | 12 comments »

I’ve written an article about the dearth of woodworking shows on television, and why. I’ll post part 2 tomorrow. ———————- I’ll come right out and say it: I like a lot of what is on television. It seems a lot of us do. More people are involved in their favorite shows than ever before. So why are so many folks are ashamed to admit that? While in casual conversation about T.V., an obligatory response is often, “Oh, I really don’t wat...

Shoe Carving Challenge #1: The Journey's Beginning

10-02-2010 12:51 AM by MsDebbieP | 20 comments »

Oct. 1/10 Preface: Jordan has asked that we save our shoe carving projects for a grand unveiling when we have completed the challenge and I will do that, however, I want to blog about the experience, from a personal level, to document my journey of self-awareness and personal growth. To do that I need to go back to the beginning… A week or so ago, Jordan Straker jokingly said something about posting a tutorial, teaching people how to “see” and to carve a shoe. What I h...

Wood Shows #12: Woodstock Ontario, 2010

10-01-2010 10:39 PM by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

October 1, 2010 This morning, Rick and I headed to the wood show in Woodstock, Ontario. Earlier this week, Prez contacted me to plan a meeting at the show. Rick and I hadn’t been inside the door for a minute and I was greeted with a hello. We had a wonderful chat (then and later on in the day as well) (See that extraordinary piece of wood behind us? Oh how I’d love to have that hanging in my house.) AND what a surprise I got when Prez handed me a gift! As an avid reader t...

Congrats To Charles Maxwell...

10-01-2010 09:29 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

Sorry I haven’t been around much, still getting my butt kicked with work. But I had to stop by and give a shout out to fellow LumberJock member Charles Maxwell. I just got Fine Woodworking Issue #215 in the mail and like always I turned straight to the gallery section before I even get back into the house. On page 76 I found one of Charles’ masterpiece clocks on display. I recognized it before even reading his name. Very Cool! I always get that “Hey I know that g...

Clipboard #3: Tumbling Dice (blocks)

10-01-2010 06:54 PM by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

Yesterday I left you with a pile of wooden diamonds. Now to make the pattern. I use a template to set out the blocks in this design. Its a simple rectangular grid where the intersection of the lines mark the places where The points of the diamonds should be in the pattern. I used CAD to draw this but pencil and ruler would do just as well. For the 20mm diamond I am using the ‘x’ spacing is 20mm and the ‘y’ spacing 11.547mm (now you see why I use CAD), 11.5mm wil...

Workshop Pictures #2: Pics with a more artistic bent

10-01-2010 02:31 PM by David Craig | 12 comments »

Received some proofs of some pics after editing. I really like what Sue did with some of these. This one is my favorite. I love the chips and particles in the air - Like the Sepia tones used when I was sharpening - I like this pic, though I get teased about it. I am not holding the board with one hand while planing with the other :) I have the board in the vise and I am grasping it lightly for balance. And this is a nice one from underneath. Not usually a fan of pictur...
