Herman Miller Design and Production Video

2056 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

What I should be doing… is getting my shop in order because I got a truckload of wood and sheet goods from guy that was moving his shop. I have a built-in banquette to get going on in the shop now that the holidays and family mayhem are behind us (in a good grandkids way.) I found gold! Actually what I found was a Herman Miller prduction video while digging through the Furnitude blog by LJ member Mitch. I just LOVE Herman Miller. What is very important about this video is th...

New Masters

2056 days ago by Rogue | 1 comment »

I found my christmas present to myself in a hastings on the way to Spokane Wa for christmas. It was “The New Masters of Woodtuning” not to be confused with “The Masters of Woodturning” printed about 15 years ago. This is a great book not only for turners but for woodworkers period. Many of the artists in this book touched on something that I found important when designing. I was reminded of it as I was commentting on a fellow jocks blog. A true artisan who is devo...

Getting Started

2056 days ago by cmckerliesr | 1 comment »

For now I am tying part of this blog into my workshop page as there is a lot of current information there about my workshop and where it stands today. But as I go on, I will include information here as to what it is like to work inside a large metal box as the weather changes and as things become more organized. But at this time I am going to keep it brief as this is my first entry and I would just be repeating what is currently on the my workshop page. Let me start too by telling you t...

Finished Project Worth Less Than Rough Wood?

2056 days ago by miles125 | 15 comments »

I’ve spent some time over the holidays in consignment and resale shops. Theres a troubling trend i’m noticing. Chances are you can buy a fine hardwood table, desk, stool or various and sundry other items for less than you can buy the same amount of lumber to build it with. Somethings not right here. Are we at a point where the most economical source of wood is to tear a finished table apart? I’m serious. I saw a Teak carving that was out of a chunk approx 3” x 4̶...

Hey guys, It has been almost a year, and what a year!!!. We moved locations, hired more people, and tripled business. No wonder I haven’t had time to update my stuff.

Anyone "Game" for Turning Some Dice Cups?

2057 days ago by Eric | 0 comments »

Note: I posted this question on the Forums, but since I think the Blogs get more reads I thought I’d give it a go here as well. One of my other hobbies involves boardgames, and as such I belong to a boardgame community over at BoardGameGeek. One of the guys over there was pining for handmade wooden cups for rolling dice. I told him I’d check on it for him and let him know – and he said, “Yeah, go for it!” So is anyone out there interested in a commission to make some wooden dice c...

Weekend Bench #6: Getting a little closer to being done

2057 days ago by dsb1829 | 6 comments »

I had to take a couple of days off for Holiday travel. I got back at the bench yesterday for about 6 hours and batched out the dog holes and lower shelf. I am not overly thrilled with how the dog holes worked out. In the end I used an Irwin boring bit and this jig. I found that using just one clamp allowed the board to wiggle some as the bit drove in. Doing it this way the second and third clamps secure the board better. A backing board is necessary.or you will get blowout at the bott...

Mid-Atlantic LumberJocks Picknic/Get Together

2057 days ago by Greg3G | 14 comments »

Calling all Mid Atlantic LumberJocks! I met up with Karson at the Baltimore Woodworking Show earlier today and I mentioned to him I would like to see a Mid-Atlantic LumberJocks Picnic or party this year. He thought it would be a great idea. I would like to get a feel of how many of LumberJocks in the Mid-Atlantic area would be interested in meeting this year. I am thinking late June as a time line. Between the time school let out and the July 4th holiday. We thought that the Baltimore/W...
