IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

Underway again...finally #6: College Football Day freebie haul

11-04-2017 06:48 PM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

Today being college football day and the area experiencing record setting heat for November as well as early morning fog making humidity uncharacteristically uncomfortable outside between 7-and-11 this morning, I don’t plan to do any work on the workbench today. Instead, I took a ride out to my “favorite”/go-to free pallet place and picked up some goodies – even made 2 runs as the Prius can only hold so much.I got plywood! 3 sheets somewhere between 3’x6’ a...

Video is here View on YouTube Just a simple method that will work to set the hoop properly on your Japanese chisels.

It is a good sized barn at 40’ x 50’ with a hay loft upstairs that is massive and it already has a concrete floor on most of it.

I on the other hand see all the potential within and ju...

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

I started working as a apprentice for Richard at Nautilus Woodworks in Riviera Beach, Florida after working at a car rental agency while trying to get out of nursing.

My first day on the job we were crating up a cocktail table that was being shipped to a country club in Connecticut. It was a mahogany table wi...
