LJ Interviews #28: Spoontaneous

05-17-2012 09:24 AM 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

03-20-2012 09:36 AM 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.

Dad was always fiddling wit...

LJ Interviews #19: Purplev

08-16-2011 11:46 AM 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...
