Add a little decoration to your woodworking project.

02-15-2007 05:55 AM by Roger Strautman | 3 comments »

As you can tell by my screen name I’m a woodcarver but not just any kind of woodcarver, a chip carver. I like to make boxes, plates, wall hangings, ect. and I wanted to decorate them but I’m not a painter so chip carving was the next best way to decorate. Chip carving is one of the simplest types of carving because all you need is a knife, ruler, pencil with an eraser, and a bow compass. A little chip carving on you woodworking project will set yours project apart from others, it&...

Blue Spruce Toolworks

02-14-2007 09:08 PM by Ethan Sincox | 1 comment »

I don’t know if I can say enough good things about Dave Jeske, owner of Blue Spruce Toolworks. My best friend’s birthday is coming up (February 17th, actually) and I wanted to get him something with a little umph to it for his birthday. He is a great musician (guitar and mandolin, mostly) and some day wants to blend his love of music with woodworking and become a luthier of sorts. So over the past few years, I’ve taken the opportunity to start giving him some woodworkin...

"The Function of Beauty" --by RusticWoodArt

02-14-2007 02:59 PM by frank | 2 comments »

”The Function of Beauty” is in the essence of who i am, by the character of my spirit as wrought forth, in the singing of my hands to sounds of rapturous travail, that shall declare ‘the function of beauty’ to just so be…. And so beauty ‘just is’.... Beauty functions whether you give it a place of rest or no-place and send it on its way…. Beauty will function as art by being homeless and living in a kings regal and at the same...

Tool Thoughts.....

02-14-2007 10:00 AM by Philip Edwards | 7 comments »

Hi FolksHere’s a picture of the rebate plane – I’ve put full step-by-step pics on my website. Hope you find them useful. Wooden planes are a real pleasure to make and an even bigger pleasure to use! Why is this?Thinking about it I reckon its for two reasons. One, they are made out of our favorite material and feel warm and inviting in the hand. Low friction, smooth action.Two, they are all specialised tools.Why is that important? And isn’t that really a negative thing?...

Dovetail Joint - The Everest of Woodworking?

02-14-2007 08:45 AM by Don | 8 comments »

When I started in woodworking, I frequently read that the Dovetail Joint was the mark of a skilled woodworker; that it was a difficult joint to make and doing so announced to ‘those in the know” that the maker was a real craftsman (or is that craftsperson?). Then I discovered that you could make Dovetail Joints on jigs; not just make them, but make them perfectly. So I purchased my first Dovetail Jig shown here. Now whilst this helped me make perfect dovetail joint every time, ...

Winter Awards finished, prizes sent

02-13-2007 10:34 PM by Martin Sojka | 15 comments »

Uff.. it was really time consuming to order and send all prizes. However it should be expected when I decided to reward ten voters in addition to winners and runner ups in two categories. But now I’m happy – grinning ear to ear as Debbie said ;) So expect your prizes in the coming days – hopefully most of them will be delivered next week. And start thinking about your entries for the Summer Awards because it is never too soon. It seems like we will continue with this s...

A visit with an old friend...

02-13-2007 05:24 PM by Ethan Sincox | 4 comments »

It felt good to be back in the shop this past Sunday afternoon. I paused as I walked past my bench, resting a hand on a bundle of small blocks of curly mahogany from my wood pimp, Chit. I haven’t really figured out what I’m going to do with them, but for $5, it was a deal I could hardly pass up. I picked up my hand and could see its impression in the wood dust that had settled on it since its purchase. That made me frown slightly – it has been too long since I’ve done any kind of woodwork...

In the Moment

02-13-2007 03:41 PM by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

Although our past is part of who we are and a reminder of things we have learned and we envision and plan for our future, it is in the moment that we live: creating our life, portraying who we are, living true to our Selves. My first real understanding of this message came for a book (I can’t remember the name right now but will look it up) in which the author talked about the process of walking to the door to open it. What are you doing in the moment? Walking to the door? No, you ar...
