Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...
This is Jalen’s interview on The Highland Woodworker. His interview starts at the 19:20 mark. I need to make one disclaimer. Jalen was not on the cover of Fine Woodworking. That image was a gift they made for him as a souvenir when we toured their office last summer. You can see more about his projects here.

One of my woodworking objectives is to recreate a number of iconic works from little known Arts and Crafts era furniture maker Charles Rohlfs. Most woodworkers are familiar with Arts and Crafts makers such as Morris, Stickley and Greene. Their furniture has been reproduced by many woodworkers and is routinely featured in woodworking magazines. Charles Rohlfs has not received the same popular notoriety. Rohlfs was born in Brooklyn on 1853. He was trained as a designer and draftsman an...
I recently turned a series of 30 Cal Bolt Action Pens to be given away as door prizes for an upcoming convention. While I was turning the pens a told me she would like one as well. Here’s the finished pen. This pen is a gold 30 Cal Bolt Action pen with a blue and white Inlace Acrylic body.
Our Blue Knights Motor Cycle Club, BKNVII.org , is hosting the Blue Knights West Coast Conference Convention here in Reno this year. I committed to turning five pens as door prizes. Since the Blue Knights are a Law Enforcement club I decided to use 30 Cal Bolt Action Pen Kits. The Blue Knight colors are blue and white. The pen bodies are different blue and white acrylic blanks. Here at the finished pens.
This is one of the new Penn Industries Knights Armor Pens. The body of the pen is an Urban Camo design in Acrylic.
You can’t appreciate this toy unless you see it in action. I hope the link works. It’s my first ever youtube video and the first video ever shot on my iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclY0Ho9dC8&feature=youtu.be I started tinkering and playing with this idea a couple of years ago and just decided to take it back off the shelf. The kids might not want to put their video games down long enough to try and master this simple toy but I would set the age range from 6 ...
The program was broadcast on 14.05.2014 under the program called “local creation.” They invite artists from different fields for interview. (Sorry, but the subtitles are in Hebrew and Arabic only).Please click here to see it
My first “real” carving and first time ever posting the process of a piece of work, so please just have patience with me :) The fish began with a piece of driftwood I found in the creek behind my house. It already had a nice curve to it, was fairly solid and had a natural “mouth” which I immediately thought would make a pretty cool fish. (sorry I don’t have a pic of the driftwood before I began sanding it some, I just wanted to see what it look...
As I have been involved in scrolling for about four year plus my interest has become the older, more detailed, intricate patterns. Like the ones produced, to my knowledge, around the turn of the century. Some of my present and a lot of my new projects will focus on these types of patterns. I have done some extensive research as to where to find these types of patterns. Yes I am well aware the several web sites have some of what I am talking about. However paying $15 for a single pattern vs...
