My wife has requested a charging station for our personal electronics. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but now she has requested it as a Mother’s Day gift, (though it doesn’t have to be finished by then.) What we have in mind is a sort of ‘place’ that the electronics can live on as well as be charged as needed. We have two laptops, two iphones, an ipod, an ipad and my Nook. a nice add on would be a place to keep earbuds and memory sticks. I hav...
I inadvertently have found myself in a position where there is an expectation of woodworking gifts for the holidays this year. I guess that’s what I get for posting all my little projects on Facebook where my family can see them. So, for my father I am going to be making a six-pack beer tote out of mahogany and quarter sawn sycamore. I’m hoping it looks as good as I envision it will when it’s finished. It’s going to have rare earth magnets for catching the bottle ca...
Hi; not so much an update. but putting something here hoping it helps my search.I am looking for Green Woodworking people, amateurs, pro’s, wannabees, aficionados,... you know people who like to start with trees and make things out of them! I am especially interested in finding out if there are any “clubs” or organisations of them in the USA like there are of other turners, carvers and furnituremakers. post a reply to let me know you are out there, and all that sort of...
I don’t often find myself in the shop twiddling my thumbs on what to make next, but sometimes I need a little inspiration, a quick gift, or a time filler while I’m waiting for a finish to dry. I have a great Pinterest board for woodworking ideas, but I don’t often have my iPad out in the shop, so I simply printed my pins onto paper and hung it on the bulletin board. The first couple pages were portrait, but the rest are landscape which works better because the projects get c...
hello everyone, I am new to woodworking. I am building a table, one like I saw in apple store.after a month of long struggle I finally got to the finishing stage.I am not a big fan of oil polyurethane because of its shine and non-woody feel of it.but I thought I might make it work if I applied very thin layer.and wiped it with cloth instead of brush. well. it didn’t work out very well. not happy with the outcome. shinny and plasticky does anyone know how to get that effect of f...
I posted this in the review section as well. But I felt the video offers a lot of context on how I use the Dust Deputy as a professional, what tools I use it with, and how I have it set up. This is a lot of good information to consider if you are thinking of getting one. You can see my Dust Deputy review here. Your friend in the shop- Todd A.

Hello, Viewers (First few paragraphs are a short story of who I am and a little bit about me.

After moving to his website and checking out 90% of his videos over a few days period, a ton of ideas, thinkin’s, plans, and related thoughts was running through my v...
My DH has decided to give me a better space in the garage to keep my tools and things. So right now while everything is getting rearranged it’s hard to get at all my stuff. So I’ve been planning out some projects I’d like to make. While looking on LJ’s and other sites for some projects to build I started to look for some plans. Until I really get going with this I’ll need plans to go by. I like Ana-White.com because of the easy to follow plans. If you have sit...
I got your attention with that title, so here’s the picture….. I began to cut the hole for the vise two nights ago, last night I actually got it mounted. I had to use 3 layers of plywood to get the clearance I needed to mount it. (I’ll try and get a picture of that when I’m under the bench again. I’m not picking it up again if I can help it.) I had my 10 year old nephew help me mount it and here are the results… I have one coat of BLO ...
