DeWALT goes American

13 days ago by swirt | 16 comments »

I fully embrace the global community and think the world is an interesting place with everyone from all walks of life in it. That being said, I am a fan of American made. Call it one part pride and one part liking to make sure my neighbors and my neighbors neighbors are employed. Recently DeWalt has made a commitment to this ideal and has moved production of many of its tools, including power tools, back to US soil. They have a pretty awesome video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUvnK...

All American

1041 days ago by Transition | 5 comments »

I have decide to turn only reclaimed, American woods. I’m doing this for several reasons:1) There are trees that we pass, and largely ignore, everyday. Turning this wood gives me a chance to reintroduce myself and others to to this amazing world. I love the outdoors, and I go hiking, exploring, and “wood hunting” with my son quite often. I want to be able to point to a tree and tell him what it is. But as I’ve started trying to identify the species of wood that I&...

A Woodworking Marathon for Charity

1142 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

OK guys – you don’t hear much from me because I am swamped with work. This takes me away from blogging and from sharing with woodworkers. So one of the things that it detrimentally impacted is my schedule to build a Shaker Bench for Charity. To compound my schedule dilemma I thought the auction was Saturday night and turns out it is Friday night. This morning I throw a Tweet out there asking where are all the woodworkers that want to help me just for free, just for the exper...

American Craftsman Workshop Video Tour

1198 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 40 comments »

A New Toy For Work:) I just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6 for recording my work. One of the great things about it is that it has a 25mm wide angle lens. This is makes it great for taking pictures of my installed work in small rooms. I thought that taking photo & video of the shop would be a good test drive for it and a good way to share a tour of the American Craftsman Workshop. This video was entirely shot with this camera (except for the photos of the camera itself:) Music: ...

A Craig’s List Flag

1339 days ago by TopamaxSurvivor | 21 comments »

I often scan the freebies on Craig’s List looking for wood. Saturday, Aug. 14, 2010, I spied an American Flag. I responded thinking it deserves to be flown or properly disposed of, not thrown in the garbage. It was only a couple miles from my house, so I drove over to pick it up after the response with an address. It had been her mother’s flag and was in pristine condition. It was either new or had been indoors. It had definitely been displayed; there was thread holding one of the bracke...

Made in America?

1482 days ago by David Craig | 16 comments »

I know, I know, this subject raises its ugly head every now and then in the forums and the blogs. Every now and then someone will pose the “Buy American” phrase or question. I just wanted to post a thought on this, or at least give everyone my take on my “Made in America” thought process. First of all, “Made in America” is not as simple as looking at the tag. Items are assembled in America with foreign parts, items are assembled in a foreign land with Am...

1736 days ago by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

I just tumbled into a fantastic vat of info hosted by the Special Collections Research Center of the NCSU Libraries. ”Radial, tangential, and cross-sections of 350 North American woods from the 14-volume rare book The American Woods, published between 1888 and 1910 by the author, Romeyn Beck Hough. The images can be accessed by volume number or by the scientific or common name of each tree.” http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/specialcollections/forestry/hough/index.html The 600DPI i...
