LJ Interviews #28: Spoontaneous

802 days ago by MsDebbieP | 13 comments »

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 ...

LJ Interviews #27: PanamaJack

860 days ago by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

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...

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…...

LJ Interviews #19: Purplev

1077 days ago by MsDebbieP | 17 comments »

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...

LJ Interviews #14: WistysWoodworkingWonders - Shop Tour

1230 days ago by MsDebbieP | 3 comments »

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...
