This interview with William is from the August 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag.(Note: William’s projects were hijacked earlier this year and photos and descriptions are not what was originally posted.) 1. How did you first get started working with wood? I got started in wood work by accident I guess you’d say. I was struggling to find something to keep myself busy that I could handle due to health problems. I lucked up and acquired access to a ...
This interview with Spoontaneous is from the April 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. 1. How did you first get started working with wood? I grew up in an orphanage from age 6 until I graduated high school and there was never any introduction to woodworking, art or craft. The exception that probably set the course, was one day the Superintendent of the orphanage showed me a walking cane crafted from burnt matchsticks made by someone in prison. I got it in my head that one day I wanted ...
This interview with PanamaJack is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. 1. How did you first get started working with wood? I remember, way back in the mid-60”s, watching my Grandpa Carl Fritz making what I call the old “School House” hexagonal type wall clocks. Sometimes I got to help in cutting the woods he used. Most times however he told me to just sit there on my own little chair and watch. Told me many a time that I could learn a whole lot by...
This interview with Mot is from the February 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. 1. How did you first get started working with wood?I started working with wood, playing with scraps and off cuts, around my dad and his projects. He used to build boats. Sailboats and power boats. When I was quite young, he and my brother built a small tunnel hull hydroplane. It was just for a 15HP motor, but my brother and I terrorized our local lake, in that boat, for years! Dad was always fiddling wit...
This interview with degoose is from the September 2011 issue of our eMag 1. How did you first get started working with wood? Well Ms Debbie, quite a few years ago, we needed a wall unit, for the TV, in a house we had just bought… it was an older house and we wanted solid timber furniture… well, the pieces I liked, we could not afford and what we could afford, we really did not like… so I said to my wife, “If I had a router, I could build us a unit…. what is so hard about that…...
This interview with PURPLEV is from the August 2011 issue of the LJ eMag. 1. How did you first get started working with wood? My first few projects (spread over several years) were out of necessity for some tables/cabinets/shelvings for personal use that required custom dimensions, and custom features. It wasn’t anything much to look at, just some plywood cut with a circular saw and screws holding it together. no glue, no intricate joinery, but it did what it was bui...
This interview, with Lew, is from the July 2011 issue of the LumberJocks’ eMag. 1. How did you first get started working with wood?My first recollection of woodworking was playing with Lincoln Logs. The smell of those pieces and creating a structure seemed to satisfy something in me. 2. What was it about woodworking that initially caught your interest, enticing you to get into it at the level you are now?Making things has always been part of my mindset. At...
This interview is from the April 2011 issue of the LumberJocks’ eMag. Thanks to Dennisgrosen for taking the time to do this interview. 1. How did you first get started working with wood? it all started i think the same summer my parents build their house; I was on summer vacation at my uncle and aunt’s and he had this lovely basement with a lot of different handtools – a candystore to come down into for me. Even today, I wouldn’ be able to tell you ...
While checking out workshops I noticed this one by WistysWoodworkingWonders. I smiled when I saw that a single idea blossomed into a multi-purposed space. Wisty’s work space began as a typical garage workshop and then, during a casual (and joking) conversation with a neighbour the idea started to form. But I’ll let Wisty tell you about the journey himself. “Debbie asked if she could drop by for a tour of my shop [in Victory, BC, Canada] which of course is...
(This interview is from the March 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag)Thank you to TopamaxSurvivor for taking the time to share his story with us) 1. How did you first get started working with wood? I started when I was about 8 or 10 whittling toys with a pocket knife my grandparents gave me for Christmas. I helped my dad and uncles building and fixing things on their farms as I grew up. I had lots of early exposure and responsibilities to not waste too much precious materia...
