Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #18: The WoodWright's Shop & The Highland Woodworker... I dunno about this...
As an owner of three strands of Roy Underhill’s mustache hair, which I bought off eBay and keep in a frame above my bed, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that Popular Woodworking has signed a deal to offer the original early years of The Woodwright’s Shop on DVD. Actually, more than just excited, I peed myself a little. I love his show. To me it takes everything great about woodworking, and all that is good and pure about television, and wraps it up into one saw-dusty pac...

Here’s the summary of the event as well as the announcement of the winner and runner-ups by Glen Huey, Senior Editor of PW: “Congratulations everyone. The LumberJocks excelled at designing great looking, buildable...
With the publication of my article entitled “It’s a Secret” (click here to read the article online) in the November issue of Popular Woodworking, I started getting lots of email with comments and questions about the subject. Evidently so did the magazine because they started forwarding the emails to me. All had a common theme…”we want more!”. Well, last week I started a series of posts on my blog that will add to the article. This series is going to be o...

This was my first WIA and my expectations were building all year long. I even vowed to skip IWF (the big tool show in Atlanta), just to make sure I could focus all my attention on this education-focused conference. And am I ever glad I did! The MarketplaceThe show consists of two main areas: ...
Here are the frequently asked questions answered by Glen Huey, Senior Editor of Popular Woodworking. Can we enter an original design that we’ve recently executed and already built?Yes, as long you’re willing to build the unit again or work with us as we build it to your winning plan. How detailed does initial design need to be? A set of plans, or just a rough sketch?This is, to a large extent, up to the you. We must to be able to determine from the drawings that the design is able...
Don’t forget that the entry deadline of our Bookcase Challenge is on Sunday.. so there are just 4 days to go. I suggest to read the rules carefully before posting your polished entry. Here they are again: HOW TO ENTER / OFFICIAL RULES The primary function of the entry is as a bookcase. You won’t gain points if the piece is a dining table with shelves located below the apron ;) Plus it must be able to be built in the real world – not just in the computer program. Desig...
I used to subscribe to just about every woodworking magazine out there. I have cut back to only a couple total now but I still peruse them all at the local book store. Today I picked up the current issue of Popular Woodworking #181 and found an article by LJ member Tom Fidgen. The article found on page 58 is an excerpt from his newly released book Made By Hand. I own a copy of this book and love it. It is a hard bound book, well constructed, and full of wonderful information and images....
I thought I’d let my woodworking buddies know that my DVD was published! In my above video I share a preview of the DVD that I just produced & released with Popular Woodworking Magazine, titled: “Building a Traditional 18th Century Jointer Plane with Bill Anderson. It’s nearly 4 hours of instruction! Bill and I wanted to create a very affordable and detailed class that would be easily understood by both beginner and advanced woodworkers, and we achieved that…with the help of R...
