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...

Shaker Bench for Charity 2011 #3: Shaker Bench Completed In Time (Just Barely!)

03-07-2011 02:28 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

Whew! That was a close one! Brian Havens and I worked on the Shaker Bench for Charity right up to the last minute. The social mixer and appetizers started at 6:00p.m. This was when the items went on view for both the silent and live auction. I was spraying the final coat of lacquer on the drawers at 5:50p.m. while Brian showered and changed. Then I showered and changed while Brian and my wife Rita loaded the bench in the vehicle. By the time I got dressed, the bench was al...

Shaker Bench for Charity 2011 #1: Neck Deep in Woodworking...

03-03-2011 06:57 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 11 comments »

Shop Update- Fellow LJ member Brian Havens flew out from his home in California Tuesday night to help me build a Shaker Bench for Charity. I think he may have questioned this decision as he arrived here in Billings at 11pm and the temperature was -3°. SNAP! Immediately upon arriving to my place we went straight into the shop. The next couple of hours were spent talking about our shops and the differences. It was only after our voices were getting hoarse and eyes blurry from fatigue did we ...

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...

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

03-19-2011 02:28 AM 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 ...

Online Charity Tool Auction

11-05-2012 04:05 PM 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...

Shaker Bench for Charity 2011 #2: The Deadline Draws Near...

03-04-2011 04:19 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 14 comments »

Yikes! We are cutting this one close. The Shaker Bench for Charity is being constructed out of black walnut and it is gorgeous. But the drawback is that black walnut simply takes a bit longer to process than the cherry which all previous benches have been made of. When you multiply the extended processing time by several pieces it all starts adding up. Newspaper Coverage The Billings Gazette stopped out and took some photos and gave the story of our woodworking marathon for charity ...
