Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #40: Stumpy Nubs: Troll Hunter (They taste like chicken)

04-15-2013 11:03 PM by StumpyNubs | 15 comments »

I am not just an somewhat overrated woodworker with an endless supply of bad jokes and a troubling affinity for blue denim shirts. I am also a naturalist, a man who spends his weekends in the wild observing exotic creatures and documenting their strange habits. My expeditions take me all over the worldwide web, to the lurking places of the most despicable of predators: the Woodworking Trolls. I’ve spent years among their kind, frequenting their natural habitat on woodworking message boa...

Hand tool tips and tricks #15: Dead Blow Mallet, to Mar or Not to Mar?

04-04-2013 12:59 PM by RGtools | 11 comments »

I don’t know ab dead blow mallet both in and out of the shop. I just find all kinds of rough tasks for it on the farm (and sometimes in the shop). The problem is that I also use the thing for disassembling joints the those rough tasks that chew up the mallet face can translate to dented work. The solution is simple, mark one face for Rough work and one for Fine. How you mark your mallet is up to you, but I liked this. Problem Solved.

Tool thoughts #45: sometimes you just have to walk away...

03-31-2013 09:19 PM by NedB | 2 comments »

after getting the shop in relative order, I decided to try my hand at turning and carving some spoons as a ‘getting back into the swing of things’ project after the winter. yeah….right… I cut several spoonish shapes out of some poplar, figuring, hey it’s a soft-er hardwood, easy to carve, right? suuure. I dig out my spoon plane, and my hook blade and proceed to go through all of the blanks in short order, saving just one of them, which wound up as a spatula...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #37: Funny Festool Video- The Finest Woodworker in the World?

03-17-2013 11:34 PM by StumpyNubs | 18 comments »

I made this video for a Festool thing, a parody of the “Most interesting man in the world” Dos Equis commercials. It’s supposed to be tongue in cheek, so don’t email me saying I am not the “finest Woodworker in the World”, please. Visit for more woodworking goodness!

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #34: The amazing, wooden, homemade Franken-Cyclone LIVES!

03-03-2013 03:18 AM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

They said it couldn’t be done. They said it was impossible, incomprehensible, in other words, insane… But IT’S ALIVE!!!! The “Franken-Cyclone” is finished and none too soon because it is about to go head to head with the king of commercial units: The Clear Vue CV1800! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder why it took four episodes to complete, but most of all you’ll have the best 19 minutes of your life this week! ...that and a whole ...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #35: Ohhh- You meant THAT kind of "stool sample"...

02-27-2013 02:44 PM by StumpyNubs | 19 comments »

Have you ever said something you regret? I’m not talking about the time you cussed out that baby that kept looking at you in line at the supermarket or when you asked the fat lady if she was expecting. I’m talking about something that seemed to make absolute sense at the moment you said it, but upon further examination, you wish you could cram it back into your pie hole before anyone else noticed how stupid it was. As a maker of fine films, I have learned the importance of carefully consid...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #33: Look out evil- there's a guy running around with a measuring tape!

02-07-2013 06:45 PM by StumpyNubs | 12 comments »

Woodworkers get inspiration from the most unlikely of sources. Recently I was eating a sandwich when it hit me: I’ve been getting ripped off! Maybe I should give you a little background on this… A couple of weeks ago I read a news story about a guy who was suing Subway restaurants because his “foot long” sub wasn’t a full twelve inches. Apparently he felt a little empty inside after consuming his cold cut combo. So he went around town ordering from every Subway he could find and measuring...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #32: Powermatic Snubs Stumpy Nubs... (I love titles that rhyme!)

01-17-2013 06:50 PM by StumpyNubs | 17 comments »

So, a while back I got an email asking me to submit a paragraph or two to Powermatic for their Facebook contest. They were going to give away a mortising machine to the best story about what you would do with one. Now, I already have two power mortisers (a Harbor Freight and a Craftsman), but I’m not one to turn down free tools! So I wrote something up. Bottom line is, I didn’t win. They gave mortisers to three people with heart rending stories that deserved them a lot more than I...
