Greetings everyone, As some of you may know, my videos/templates are now carried by Woodcraft (woHoo!): What you may NOT know is that they have been significantly discounted from my original prices. So, of course, I lowered the prices on my website as well. Now everyone can save some bux and have a chance to build one of these pieces for themselves. In addition, if you visit the Woodcraft website here, all of the router bits (which are now made by Whiteside) needed for some of the ...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #43: Sometimes the Lazy Way is More Work Then Anticipated (But We Learn Something)
OK. This is getting scary. Do we only get so many good days in a given time period? Or are we really the masters of our own destiny? I am probably over-reacting, but I just really like when things work out like you want them to. I am kind of hoping that it is because thought and planning went into something that it turns out well. That gives us some sense of control. I would hate to think that it is only by chance. So where were we? Ah, yes. The autumn leaf candle tray. As I was sa...

Currently I am making two styles of stoppers, cork and the metal o-ring type from Rockler (http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=18020&filter=wine%20stopper). I like the crome o-ring type from Rockler because of it’s sealing capability. I presently get my cork from Packard Woodworks (http://www.packardwoodworks.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=packard&Product_Code=151322&Category_Code=proj-supp-botstop-botsc) and can make stoppers cheaply and use them as a l...
I woke up an hour early this morning from a dream. I am sorry to say that it wasn’t a lovely dream about woodworking or designing or anything so creative. It was one of those startling dreams that shook you a bit so that you couldn’t get back to sleep. I laid there for a while and I finally knew it was futile to try to get back to sleep and I gave up. Besides, just think of what I can do with this extra hour today. I’ll look at it as a gift and we will go from there. :) ...
Today I accompanied a very good friend and carving buddy to So.CalWood.I have to say as we drove up the driveway to meet Rob I saw all the wood and the heart palpatations started.Rob showed Chris and I around his magnificent place. We feasted our eyes on some of the most beautiful stacks and stacks of wood. Rob is truely a lumberjock in every form of the word. Not only is he very talented but his ideas and creations are second to none.I came home with some Black Walnut, a few burls, some Blac...
Did you ever wake up and just know it was going to be a good day? I love when that happens! I feel like that today. (And, no. I don’t think I am “jinxing” myself. I don’t believe in that – although I do believe somewhat in Karma) Yesterday was a great day. There was no particular reason, but things just went according to plan – and then some. I got all my files in order and backed up on the new drive, I filled some orders, I made contact with the two ...

Finally! Well guys, I am finally getting my schedule and projects under control. But I am still busy working 7 days a week to catch up. For the last couple of weeks I have been knocking off work between 10 and 10:30pm. Working from 7am to 10pm sounds like a long day but it is short compared to the previous 3 months that I was working 7am until 1 or 1:30am. There were two instances where I worked from 7am one morning until 11:30 the next night with only about a 1hour nap. I find that ...
