1720 days ago by acanthuscarver | 11 comments »

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...

Spotlight on LJ Member Tom Fidgen

1651 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 5 comments »

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....

272 days ago by paulcanbuildthat | 0 comments »

For my Introduction to Woodworking class, we have a “final project” that we choose ourselves. Given that I’m learning to use hand tools, I’ve decided to make a handplane cabinet. In my latest blog entry, I show how I use Google (now Trimble) SketchUp to create the design and the use of layers and scenes to showcase the various parts of the design without duplicating any portion. This was based on information that I learned from Bob Lang in his article from Popular Woodworking. T...

Wood Talk Online interview

1994 days ago by acanthuscarver | 3 comments »

I’ve posted a couple of blog entries here at Lumberjocks about my show schedule so I could entice a bunch of other Lumberjocks to come out and we could meet when I’m in their area. I’m sure it’s been more of a thrill for me than it has for those who’ve made the trek out to meet me. On that front, there’s a couple more shows I’ll be attending this season but I’ll post about them a little later. What I wanted to post about today was the fact th...
