Getting Started!

07-18-2013 07:52 AM by Tim Roman | 0 comments »

I must confess up front that I’m a great procrastinator! I start things and take months and even years to finish them, if I ever do. I have great PLANS for projects that sit on the shelf for a long time. Lately, however, I’ve made some progress in this woodworking hobby I’ve gotten into and I take delight in seeing something I’ve completed. If you ask my wife, she’ll confirm that I will frequently walk out into my workshop during commercial breaks of TV sho...

Scroll Saw Portraits - HOW TO #2: Part 2 - Full Non Video Tutorial with screen shots.

01-27-2013 06:19 AM by MichaelAgate | 16 comments »

Hi everyone, Not sure if you seen my previous message about the video. The quality was just so bad, I couldn’t post it. The resolution was set too low. What I have below, is a tutorial on how to create your patterns. I made the tutorial as simple as possible by showing you what to push and click. I didn’t spend any time in explaining the program or any real features. My goal was to give you something that you can follow by simply following the instructions. This tutorial should...

Maloof rocking chair class question

01-25-2012 05:00 AM by bkap | 6 comments »

I am considering offering a new special for those who would like to take my Maloof-style rocking chair class. After talking to a number of woodworkers, I have come up with a “class bundle” offer for a week of instruction on rocking chair science. If at least six (6) woodworkers sign up for any week-long (5 days) “class bundle,” then, by a drawing, one of those woodworkers will receive that “class bundle” for FREE. Included in the five-day (Monday t...

Community Woodshop #3: Momentum is Building!

12-18-2011 08:18 PM by communitywoodshopLA | 1 comment »

Since the last post I have been very busy figuring out how to make this work. I have met lots of generous and helpful people including architects and designers, artists, lawyers, engineers, and teachers. I found a great business partner and we are working on some really exciting ideas. Like I said before, Community Woodshop is not a new idea and when you start something new the best thing to do is find out what has been done before. So, my partner and I decided to visit the shops in the...

New Classes Page is UP

08-24-2011 06:50 PM by Martin Sojka | 17 comments »

Brave idea from our own MsDebbieP turned our to be very popular. Offering the talented LumberJocks to lead a niche class and teach other members some serious skills for free was the foundation of the LJ Woodworking Classes. Five classes have been already finished, two are just running and we already have three upcoming classes coming soon. All the news about the Classes were hard to follow and everything was happening behind the scenes. Until now… new stylish and compact Classes page...

My woodworking education #1: Visit to Palomar Community College

03-18-2010 07:55 PM by azwoodman | 6 comments »

Hey everybody! I just thought I’d start a blog about my experiences on this journey we are constantly on of getting our woodworking education. (As I write this entry I’m sitting in the car, in the parking lot of a Del Taco restaurant, in Indio, California.) I am at a crucial crossroads in my life right now; I’ve recently gotten married, I don’t have much school done, and I need to choose a career to support my wife and I as well as our future children… As...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #6: A Class Act

12-24-2009 07:26 PM by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

It looks like we’ll be running down to SoCal at the end of February to visit family & clients. We’ll take advantage of the opportunity to hit the Gamble House Joinery Tour, hit Disneyland while the kids are at school, and most importantly: Darrell Peart’s Greene & Greene Details I class at the William Ng School of Woodworking! I noticed that Marc Spagnoula (Woodwhisperer) is teaching classes there (i.e. Hall Brothers Frame, etc.). I’m really jazzed because...

The Woodworkingshow in DFW opens tomorrow.

10-22-2009 03:14 PM by Rick Boyett | 5 comments »

Tomorrow the Woodworking Show will open over at the Big Town Exhibition Hall in Mesquite, TX. Since I have the day off, I’m going to spend most of it there. I plan on doing a little write up on it with photos (if they let me take my camera in there). One of the things I really like about the Woodworking Shows are the classes they give. I’m looking forward to seeing the one hour “Hand Tool Rodeo” class where they’ll be going the use and maintenance of the di...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #7: Roarockit - Part II (Veneering Lesson)

09-02-2007 12:25 AM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

This past Friday (August 31, 2007) my daughter, (our Canadian Film Crew, / chauffeur) “volunteered” to drive me to Toronto for a personal tour of Ted & Norah’s new location for their Roarockit business and skateboard school. The first part of the interview is found here First of all, I have to say that the travel gods were with us as the trip took us less than two hours, with no traffic jams. Wow. Anyone who has driven to Toronto knows that this is not a common occu...
