The American Craftsman WorkShop #10: Reorganizing the Shop - Again!

10-06-2009 05:34 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 28 comments »

First Snow! Yesterday we woke up to the first snow of the season. We ended up officially receiving 4.6” but it has mostly melted off by this morning. Rita’s garden is looking pretty sad. You may be wondering, and the answer is “yes.” That is a genuine outhouse but the pit has been filled and it is used as a small gardening tool shed. Putting new shakes on the roof is on my honey-do list. On to the shop… I started working yesterday and I got on...

Herman Miller Design and Production Video

01-04-2009 08:11 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

What I should be doing… is getting my shop in order because I got a truckload of wood and sheet goods from guy that was moving his shop. I have a built-in banquette to get going on in the shop now that the holidays and family mayhem are behind us (in a good grandkids way.) I found gold! Actually what I found was a Herman Miller prduction video while digging through the Furnitude blog by LJ member Mitch. I just LOVE Herman Miller. What is very important about this video is th...

Design Article for WOOD Magazine

08-28-2013 07:53 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

The October 2013 issue of WOOD Magazine is now on the stands and inside you will find my latest article. One of the most frequent questions I receive is how do I get inspiration for my designs. This is also a topic the editors at WOOD Magazine get requests for, so they asked if I would share a page on how I get inspiration for design. The topic of design and getting inspiration can actually become a pretty lengthy topic and a very complex one which can easily fill a book. But we boi...

Guess Who Is In The Latest Issue of WOOD Magazine:)

04-07-2014 06:36 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

Check it out! The current issue of WOOD Magazine (May 2014, Issue 225) has a good article on designing projects and building prototypes. The article contains 6 points on the process of taking a project through the design and prototyping, to a finished project. The staff at WOOD Magazine asked me to contribute information on how I design and use prototypes. For the article they ended up using a picture of me building a full-scale cardboard fireplace for a client, and a key quote for the ...

Design Thoughts on a Shaker Inspired Bench Video Re-edit

10-15-2009 06:47 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

I am not attempting to milk this out, but I was very unsatisfied with my edit job on the first release so I worked it over again. This version is actually 9 seconds shorter but I have added a handful of still images for close-ups to show more detail. This gives added value to the video as it provides greater visual information. This video is not about the how-to for constructing the bench. It really is about the design and thought process for creating it. I cover many of the design ele...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #14: Reorganizing the Shop - Finishing Up

10-10-2009 06:12 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 10 comments »

Almost Done I only have a few things left on the list for this round of shop organization. I need to get the clamps hanging on the wall. At the moment they are just laying on the floor. Before this started they were standing, piled in a corner. It was difficult to access them or pull them out individually, but I cannot neglect them for one more day on the floor. This has been their temporary home while I finished the wall. I also need to hang the extension cords. I have a lot of ...

New Site Going Full Speed Ahead

Hey everybody! First I want to say thanks for all the feedback I got from everyone. Especially for the many comments that came to me via the Contact form from my site. It really helped knowing that it worked and people were taking the opportunity to use it. I took many comments into consideration and have adjusted the site according to some of the suggestions, especially in making changes that should make the pages load faster. I still have a lot more to add to the site, but I have a...

I Met LJ Member Dave Mitchell Tonight!

09-27-2009 06:19 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

LJ member Dave Mitchell and his wife stopped by tonight. Dave, also known as Splinters, lives in the far northwestern corner of Montana in West Glacier. That is at the western gate of Glacier National Park. He and his wife are traveling to the midwest for a visit with family and they had to come right by my place in Billings, MT. Since I live just spittin’ distance off the freeway and the KOA is just down the street they decided to stop by. Dave is a real Montana kind of guy, a...
