the broken carpenter #1: A blank slate

198 days ago by SquintyPolock | 3 comments »

Today, I installed a light, the shop finally feels usable, and the lightbulb is dimmly glowing in my mind. We have been looking for a house for the past year and a half and finally moved just before Thanksgiving. Moving is a bittersweet experince – leaving a place with so many memories that we made so comfortable over the past 10 years and then starting over – and the excitement of a fresh start, a new space, and a new neighborhood. Three months later, we are pretty muc...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

202 days ago by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

Turkey Foot Cane

207 days ago by mpounders | 7 comments »

I’m working on a cane for my son-in-law’s father. He’s a fanatical turkey hunter and this is a surprise for his birthday in March. John provided a turkey foot as a model for me and I took pictures and enlarged them to get the foot to a size that would be usable as a cane handle. I also modified one of the claws to prevent having a piece sticking out that might get broken. I have a glue joint fight below that toe, so I have the grain of the wood running properly for strength....

a woodworker's story

219 days ago by rusticderek | 3 comments »

Today at the age of 32, I am a well-established furniture maker, small business owner, and woodworking instructor. At the age of 7 my Father John Skapars introduced me to the fine art of woodworking. I can remember helping him install our homes living room floor in the suburban Boston, Massachusetts town of Dover. An interest was sparked, and a true passion was discovered. Being an excellent student, knowing what I want, and not being afraid of failure all contribute to my current suc...

The Chicken Coop

224 days ago by mervillehomesteader | 11 comments »

About a year ago I moved onto 5 acres full of nice size fir and cedar trees a lot of trees. We cut down about a half acre for garden and chicken space. From the trees we cut down we got 5000 board feet of one inch and two inch fir timbers (mostly 10inch wide by 10 to 20ft long) and a tonne of one inch cedar planking (averaging about 14inches wide). That’s a lot of wood for one lowly carpenter but I think I will manage. Well first things first. Dig a garden and get the chickens out of...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #16: Not much happened lately..

256 days ago by Serradura | 5 comments »

Now I wish I could show you a bunch of new pictures of our workshop. Specially after the attention we got as workshop of the month. Now we do promise to keep you up to date on the work, but for now we have reached the end of our budget. So, it’s all about working hard, doing as much client projects as possible and trying to save as much as possible. There’s still a lot to be done! At last we did get the floor in as mentioned in our latest blog. And yes…. we did get a new ...
