Step one is complete, soon I will be making the second video on milling the log into rough cut boards.

Pole Barn Workshop Remodel #1: Barn Workshop The Beginnings

09-05-2017 04:27 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

Three years ago my wife and I were gifted an acre of land to build a home upon. Included in this acre was this barn. 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. Now it has been a hot topic with in the family of what we should do with this barn. My wife’s grandmother hates it for one reason or another and feels it needs torn down. 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...

Getting Back to My Passion for Woodworking #2: Apprenticeship #1

07-15-2017 05:55 AM by Duff | 2 comments »

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. It was a small shop that catered to Palm Beachers and that clientele. It was my boss Richard, Bob and I full time and a couple other guys that would come in if he needed some extra help. 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...

A Look at a Mini Kanna

05-04-2017 03:19 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

I have very few tools. In keeping with my living space but also in keeping with my belief that skills should surpass the tools that are used. In my mind it makes more sense to be able to make your own tools. So I was attracted to the Japanese thoughts of minimalism in both their tools and their methods. A mini kanna was something I’ve wanted for quite a while. it’s difficult to find one that is high quality new in the US (online or otherwise), but I found a maker (in Japan) tha...

As mentioned in my previous post, I had an interview with a local reporter, here’s the video, and for those of you wondering what I really look like now as opposed to my profile picture that was taken 33 years ago, here’s the sad truth. I forgot to mention earlier when I first posted this that all of the music playing in the background was done by me. View on YouTube
