Woodworking Inspiration #1: Woodworking - a Love Language

104 days ago by pps | 0 comments »

Aubrey eagerly sported her tool belt with tucked-in hammer. Everything about her said, “Let’s go build something daddy!” She was ready for anything and wanted to prove she could tackle anything her brothers could – and more. The “weekend” basement remodeling project had morphed into a 2 year marathon. We’d finish one part and my lovely wife would come down the stairs oohing an aahing about how good it looked. Then I’d hear those dreaded next words “But babe, that old _ (insert “w...

Wood Thoughts #2: Yuz got skillz

113 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 0 comments »

Do you have any favorite, little known, online woodworkers? I was a strange kid. When I was in high school in the mid-nineties my peers were interested in watching Married with Children and playing on their PS1s. (I was still slumming it with my NES.) Sure I was happy to watch an episode of Married with Children; but if I flipped across PBS and the New Yankee Workshop was showing, I was going to stop and see what Norm Abrams was up to. (Though I am pretty sure it was Seattle Grunge Mus...

Guide to the best woodworking videos on YouTube

113 days ago by Steve Diogo | 19 comments »

As a beginning woodworker, I’ve spent untold hours watching woodworking videos on YouTube. I’ve learned a lot and I’ve become convinced that YouTube is one of the main drivers of the current woodworking renaissance. But while there’s a lot of great woodworking videos out there, there’s also a lot of crap. Since I don’t have a lot of woodworking skills to share on LumberJocks, I thought I could provide a service by pointing out the YouTube woodworking te...

Pinterest on my board in the shop

187 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

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...

Woodworking For Therapy #1: Live or Waste Away, I choose to Live

213 days ago by Steve Kreins | 22 comments »

I have decided to chronicle my woodworking journey as part of my therapy and boy do I need it! I am 65 years old, a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and a disabled Vietnam Veteran. Oh yea, I’m also a Pastor of a Christian Church here in Waco, Texas. You’d think I had plenty to keep me active. So why would I want to add “Woodworker” to my titles? It’s simple, I have Liver Cancer and PTSD from Vietnam. Agent Orange isn’t so good for the liver. I ...

265 days ago by wyeth | 3 comments »

Nearly 3 years ago I halted this blog – perhaps a little discouraged that some found it ugly or at least disconcerting aesthetically.It sat about for years as things do but evolution comes in bursts as does inspiration.REALLY do we all find everything in nature beautiful? Not at all – but everything in nature is beautiful to at least some of us.So it is with Art and Craft. SUDDENLY THINGS ARE ON THE MOVE AGAIN. BUT HEY! What is this? and this It seems as if ...

Tips for Designing and Finding Inspiration

300 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 9 comments »

With the release of my latest article in WOOD magazine on design, it prompted more requests for a video on designing and how I find inspiration. In this video I share the lifestyle habits I have that allow me to keep finding inspiration, recording those ideas, and developing the designs. For an example, I share how I turned a Japanese torii gate into a stairwell barrier, bucking the standard design of newell posts, balusters, and handrail. While the subject of designing can get pretty d...

Design Article for WOOD Magazine

317 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

The October 2013 issue of WOOD Magazine is now on the stands and inside you will find my latest article. One of the most frequent questions I receive is how do I get inspiration for my designs. This is also a topic the editors at WOOD Magazine get requests for, so they asked if I would share a page on how I get inspiration for design. The topic of design and getting inspiration can actually become a pretty lengthy topic and a very complex one which can easily fill a book. But we boi...

Exposure in Thrillist.com

548 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 10 comments »

A Web Of Connections You never know the connections that might be made from being in a show, exhibition, or getting published. It seems like it is never is a straight line in arriving to that point nor where you may go from there. It is more like a spider web of connections and interconnections. Since being included in the fine woodworking exhibition at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, I have all sorts of emails and contacts that have come my direction. One of them was from the exe...
