Wow! I made it, I finally made it, and oh what a surprise to find a museum with Iconic Furniture pieces intermixed with a lot of European, Asian, Native American, Egyptian, and some strange Contemporary Stuff that someone else calls “art”. ————————- WARNING: If you are easily offended by my silly notions of what looks good and is well built, please don’t read any farther. I’m just giving my opinions, that is what ...
Clark Little's Photography is probably one of my greatest sources of inspiration. I am a huge beach bum and love to surf, but my passion for the ocean goes further then just enjoying it, I am inspired by it. Here are just a few of Clark Little’s Photos that inspire me the most.
When it comes to woodworking, or really anything in life, I have many Inspirations. This video is about inspiration, what or who inspires you? Inspires your ideas, your designs, your projects. What drives you to get out in the shop as often as you can and be creative? Do the things you do inspire others? I Sure hope so! I hope that my projects, videos, and the information I provide inspires others everyday.And hopefully this will help to further inspire a young woodworker who I have gro...
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...
On my walk this morning I paused to admire the Willamette River. It is wide and this morning it was quiet, peaceful and full. As always it was flowing past me, underneath my footbridge. The body split apart and came back together again with grace and ease. After admiring it’s awesome beauty I was reminded of my work and the feeling of running in place. On the surface the river looks so peaceful so laid back like nothing is really going on. It’s so full that rapids aren’t even showing whe...
What would (fill in the blank) do? I get my inspirations from several sources, depending what I am going to build and design. It could be from anyone of the big names like Maloof, Nakashima, or it could be a fellow LJ member. This comes in handy for motivation as it proved awhile back. I was looking for an attractive drawer pull for a project and out of all the sources (on line, too) out there I could not find one I liked or looked good in the design element of the project. After some...
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...
I was amazed to see this today.. It’s hard to believe that just about everything is made out of oak, including the press screw!—and its still the original one! I keep coming across amazing things like this. A blog post can contain items that serve as inspiration, so I think this fits.
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...
