GO or NO GO; The Wood Working Shows 2018

02-26-2018 11:05 PM by Matt887 | 2 comments »

GO or NO GO; The Wood Working Shows 2018 As I have mentioned before I am beginning my quest to learn more about the skills needed to become the type of woodworker who can build furniture and items of outstanding quality. With a fulltime job that takes up 60 hours of my week the one way I know to gain the knowledge I seek is to attend some classes and tradeshows. That being said I came across an advertisement for The Woodworking Shows event in Kansas City and began looking around for review...

Tales of a Hack #7: Professional frustration

01-26-2016 10:38 PM by ajw1978 | 4 comments »

It’s been awhile, fellow jocks. Too long, if I do say so myself. So, let’s get up to speed. The last time I rambled to you fine folks, I had made the decision to transition out of journalism and into carpentry. Since I couldn’t get into the local tech school thanks to a few missed deadlines, I got hooked up with a rough carpentry crew thinking I’d learn some basic skills that would pay off down the road when I finally own and renovate my own home.

Tales of a Hack #5: A quick moment to say ... thanks.

12-21-2014 08:46 PM by ajw1978 | 4 comments »

Taking a break from a disastrous Christmas-present-making effort and wanted to just spend a moment saying “thanks.” In my industry, I spend a lot of time online; Facebook, Twitter, message boards, blogs and so on and so forth. Long before I discovered the joy of woodworking and tool ownership, I was a gadget geek and spent a lot of time interacting on related websites. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned, both professionally and socially, over the years, it’...

A Strategy for Woodworking #18: Education

08-14-2014 01:16 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

I got involved building chairs with the Lumber to Legacy project in Albany, OR. Here’s the story in their local paper. Lumber to Legacy Some high schools kids helped us build this cafe chair design. I wrote to the paper explaining my involvement. “I wanted to respond further as to why I did this class for the kids. I love to teach and this was another opportunity to be with a group that doesn’t get the attention they deserve. Education in the applied arts is mostly for...

BEYOND THE BASICS- Taking your woodwoking to the next level #1: Building a new mindset -- 3 tools needed to be a better woodworker

01-27-2012 07:16 AM by chidwickschool | 10 comments »

Teaching a seminar at The Woodworking Show in Portland, OR I know I am somewhat new to Lumberjocks, but I can already see that this forum is a gold mine of support, inspiration and community—my kind of people! It is therefore, my desire to do my part in this group of like-minded friends, by starting off an extensive educational series I’ve recently prepared entitled: “BEYOND THE BASICS—Taking your woodworking to the next level” The series will include many ad...

Craftspeople, Artists, Artisans! Are you concerned about the state of arts education in our schools? Does your craft have an application to primary or secondary schools subjects? My name is Rodney Hopkins; currently I am working towards my Master’s Degree in Education at Prescott College. Specifically, I am investigating the classroom applications of crafts. Since many minds are smarter than one, I am conducting a survey of craftspeople and artists to see where they have...

On Mon or Tues, I’ll put up a picture of those two projects. spent a majority of my t...

The Mobile Base (The Volleyball Court)

12-18-2010 03:05 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 0 comments »

Pictures can be seen at my “professional” blog – Two weeks ago, my colleague and I had an interesting revelation. While installing a basketball hoop, we had extra cement. I had a shovel-ready stimulus bill waiting for him. It’s a empty tire (the rims lost to another project) with a wood bottom/plug. The metal thing in the middle is some sort of salvaged structural bracket which can hold a two inch pole of PVC or galvanized piping. Two e...
