Bookcase For Charity

06-25-2012 12:40 AM 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...

Woodworking For A Good Cause

01-18-2010 02:34 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

My wife, Rita, manages a daily program that keeps adults with developmental disabilities busy. She works personally with these individuals and we see first hand how this program enriches the lives of the participants and their families. Most of them are affected by down syndrome. We choose to support this program every year with donations for the fundraising auction. This year I donated the red bamboo sofa table. This was originally made with the intention of it being a donation. ...

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

04-19-2011 04:53 AM 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...

04-08-2010 07:58 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 10 comments »

After 30 days of intense building, Wood Whisperer Guild members have finally finished their tables. 67 people participated and thanks to 158 contributors and numerous sponsors, we managed to donate over $8000 to the American Cancer Society! I would like to thank everyone who donated and participated. And of course I would like to thank Duane Moore, the man who this whole event is dedicated to. I hope you will all join me in wishing Duane the best of luck. If you still want to dona...

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

10-10-2011 04:13 AM 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...

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

10-10-2011 04:40 PM 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...
