Online Charity Tool Auction

529 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 3 comments »

After moving my shop several times, it has become clear to me that I have more tools than I can use. Some tools were purchased with the best intentions or on a whim and I just never incorporated them into my workflow. Other tools were given to me for review, provided in exchange for advertising, or simply sent to me in hopes that I might mention them on the show. Whatever their origin, I’d rather see them being used than sitting in my shop collecting dust. Instead of selling these items outri...

Canes & Walking Sticks #2: Help us distribute canes to Veterans

660 days ago by mmh | 5 comments »

Hello All. We are a small business making custom ergonomic walking canes and would like to distribute our canes to Veterans. We are also involved in donating canes to Veterans who are outside of the procured VA system, but are limited by the funds currently at hand. You can help us widen our distribution by VOTING for BIG STICK CANES as a small business for a grant. This grant will enable us to expand our production and approach the VA as a verified vendor. It will also allow us more f...

Bookcase For Charity

663 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

De’ja’ vu Last year I built a Shaker Bench for one of our favorite local charities. I was not going to make the deadline and Brian Havens flew out at a moment’s notice to help me build & deliver the bench just in time to be fashionably late rather than just late. (See blog entry here at LJ.) This year I started my project a couple of weeks early but things did not go as smoothly as I would have liked on the project nor my schedule. As a professional contractor my s...

TheWoodWhisperer Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Rocking Horse #3: Childs play (Coloring)

921 days ago by PurpLev | 4 comments »

Probably not what I’d do on some projects, but on this one it was the perfect opportunity to let my daughter draw and paint the horse prior to sealing it. She was so excited helping out and painting it that it was all worth it. I basically let her complete freedom and a full set of brushes and water colors and away she went. Note to self – for painting a large surface better to use larger finishing type brushes and not art brushes as it took forever to just paint the main th...

TheWoodWhisperer Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Rocking Horse #2: Getting in Shape and putting it together

922 days ago by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Following yesterdays work I continued shaping the remaining parts. Yesterday I used a rasp on some smaller parts, and today having to work on larger parts and more of them I decided to forgo the rasp work and power up the oscillating belt sander. Looking back now, I am not sure it was any faster, but it required less muscle work at the cost of more dust in the air – and lots of it!. For parts that had duplicates I only shaped 1, and then using the router table and a flush trim bit tr...

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #5: Giving back

1096 days ago by RGtools | 10 comments »

I am to that point in my shop where I need to clear out old tools to make room for new better ones. For some time I have been neglecting this task because I possess the typical pack-rat gene that is inherent in most of us. The idea of a yard sale was appealing but I just have not gotten around to it, and my unused tools sat taking up space and collecting dust. Then when I was speaking to a coworker, I found out her young son likes to carve with his Swiss army knife but has not gotten any f...

Shaker Bench for Charity 2011 #4: Video Wrap-up of the Shaker Bench for Charity with Brian Havens

1127 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

Well Guys, I finally had an opportunity to sit down and edit a video that Brian Havens and I shot before he jetted back to his home in California. We had a great time working together on this project and it did well to support a local Billings organization that serves the developmentally disabled community. I also want to mention that a local LumberJock MTBrian also helped out and it was a good thing he helped what he did because we barely, just BARELY made it in time to the auction as ...
