Jim Stevens' "Scrimshaw Techniques" Book going to Print: and I'm going to be in the BOOK!

11-11-2007 09:59 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 5 comments »

Many folks over the past year have emailed me asking about whether investing in a website was worth the money and time. In my opinion (likely to change any day) for many folks that are just wanting to share their artwork with the world, I think a community posting like Lumberjocks is a better effort of your time spent. If you want to sell your work, or do it full time, then how you use the internet needs to be part of a bigger plan. Almost all “artist-based” websites I have r...

Woodworking In America 2009: Furniture Construction and Design #3: The Tools are Here

08-21-2009 06:40 PM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got the tools today so I thought I would show you guys what I got. First you can try to guess the hidden objects. They are shown in their new protective coverings for storage as I am currently workshopless. And if that wasn’t a word before then I just created it. They are the Lee Valley / Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane and the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Block Plane in Bronze. I actually got the Lie-Nielsen plane at Woodcraft a few weeks before the conference but I haven’t...

In Feburary 2011, I broke my right leg and ended up having to deal with an extend stay in the hospital and time away from work.
