Finally My Dream Woodshop Is Done

04-07-2015 06:24 PM by hoss12992 | 50 comments »

Finally have my new dream shop built now. The inside is a blank canvas, but wont be for long. 27 years ago, my 1st shop was a 7’ x 11’ old smoke house. About 12 years ago we built the old shop which is a 15’ x 28’ which not only served as my wood shop but also everybody’s storage area. This shop was nothing special, but it has served us well, as we knew we would always build another shop along with a new house on the backside of the farm. The past 4 years, we hav...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #7: New tools are always a nice change to the shop... Hitachi Scroll Saw!

Yes… I can hear it now because I know what I would say… But I’ll just wait and let you say it ;) So… I have this friend that I’ve known since Jr High. He has had his own general contracting business and such and is now a maintenance guy for a local state institution. He can do it all. From woodworking to building a house. He is by far the best drywall guy I’ve ever seen. He has it mastered. Fast and looks great with hardly no sanding. He’s just go...

American Craftsman Workshop Video Tour

01-04-2011 03:41 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 40 comments »

A New Toy For Work:) I just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6 for recording my work. One of the great things about it is that it has a 25mm wide angle lens. This is makes it great for taking pictures of my installed work in small rooms. I thought that taking photo & video of the shop would be a good test drive for it and a good way to share a tour of the American Craftsman Workshop. This video was entirely shot with this camera (except for the photos of the camera itself:) Music: ...

SHOP IMPROVEMENTS #5: Progress Update on my Bench Build

11-05-2013 09:54 AM by stefang | 40 comments »

My last post on this project was in mid Sept. before we left for Sweden. We got home in the first days of October and I took a week to rest up after the long drive. Then I got a bad cold and it has kept me out of the shop until late last week. I still have it, but I’m at least able to work a couple of hours a day now. WORKING ON THE TOPYou might recall that I wanted to hand plane the fir top, and that I first had to get rid of the larger knots before planing. In my last blog I showed...

Inspiration for those with small shops

10-24-2007 09:54 PM by TomFran | 33 comments »

I have to confess that I’ve been guilty more than a few times of complaining about my small shop. But, I have also found that there are many great woodworkers who had small shops. The size of one’s shop may impact the size of your projects, but it doesn’t necessarily have to affect the quality of your projects. Several years ago I was working in a man’s basement who was a woodworker. He had wood hanging from the ceiling everywhere. He had a tiny table saw, a tiny la...

The American Craftsman Workshop Published in WOOD Magazine!

10-10-2012 02:35 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 32 comments »

Hey guys! As usual, the summer season is the busiest for my remodeling work and it takes me away from my passion of sharing with the woodworking community. But I will take what I can get so the good news is that I am still at it. The latest issue of WOOD Magazine has just hit the bookstores and mailboxes and I was lucky enough to get a full page of coverage! The article gives tips from 4 small pro shops and mine was one of the shops covered. While there is a lot more wisdom and exper...
