Five Projects to Help Kids Learn the Craft of Nailing

07-25-2017 11:09 PM by Jack McKee | 2 comments »

Looking back at the first year I taught woodworking my main mistakes were making projects too difficult and assuming kids could use tools, at least a little. Wrong. Most kids had never picked up a tool, and the ones who had really didn’t know how to use them. Nailing is a perfect example. Kids emphasize pounding, which is not surprising. They don’t pay attention to where the nails go. There was never a thought to drilling a pilot hole first (how would they know) and when they tried to nail ...

A Grumpy Comment and then I'll Be Quiet

12-22-2015 03:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

Whenever any one of us goes to post a project we have to click on a link which reads: “Yes, I want to post my finished project that is made of wood If it doesn’t fit the above description (like tool gloats & upgrades, wood gloats, projects in progress etc.),either blog it or post it in an appropriate forum. Otherwise it will be removed.” — In the past several months I’ve noticed that at least several ‘projects’ were not made of wood, or ...

Just hit the mother load of lumber

07-19-2015 01:17 AM by Todd Swartwood | 10 comments »

I have not had much time to share anything going on in my woodworking life lately. My wife and I purchased a 15,000 sqft building about 3 1/2 years ago. So far the building houses a 1700 sqft 3 bedroom apartment we live in currently, and my shop at about 3200 sqft. We are turning one 2200 sqft section of the building into a Gluten Free Bakery my wife will run, as she is a master baker. Anyway I am making hardwood flooring for the Bakery and the area directly above the bakery that will become...

It's Pouring a Little

08-04-2014 02:02 AM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

Usually I do projects according to my whim. At the moment I’m finishing a non-woodworking house project, but I now have two pending projects on the bench, three if you count the one I need to do before the summer weather ends. My daughter has asked me to design and build a ‘notebook holder’, two actually, so she can keep them handy at her bedside. Then at church, the gift cajon that I made came by during second service. Now I have an ORDER to make one for another congregat...

A Strategy for Woodworking #7: Finishing Makes the Difference

07-10-2014 05:49 PM by Gary Rogowski | 0 comments »

How do people engage with your furniture? They look at the form first of course. If they like the shape ofa piece, then they approach it. They eye it to see the wood and the sheen of it. Always, without fail, the very next thing they do is touch the piece. Everyone loves to put their hands on wood because it’s warm, it’s inviting. And if there’s a finish on the wood, then what folks will be touching is that finish. You have to pay attention first to how that finish looks and next how it feels...

Random Updates #1: It's been a while, LJ's!

05-19-2014 03:57 PM by SalvageCraft | 2 comments »

It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent time on LJ’s and a very busy couple years for me. As you can see in the pic below, I’ve missed about thirty thousand posts on ‘Handplanes of your dreams’, and about twenty seven thousand posts on Stumpy’s epic monopost! In the past couple years since my last post I’ve gone through a separation, moved twice, bought a house, gotten married and now have an amazing stepdaughter the same age as my biol...
