07-20-2014 04:52 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 33 comments »

Constructing passage doors can seem intimidating. In this video I share with you how I built a custom door and demystify the process of door construction. One of the ideas that I really want to impress on everybody is this: Don’t be intimidated by new projects. When approaching a new project, most of the woodworking actions needed for it, you have done on other projects. By recognizing this, you create the mindset you need to build something that seems intimidating such as a door. I hop...

Custom Hand Plane by Mike Shea

06-18-2013 01:27 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 5 comments »

I “grew up” woodworking with power tools since my background is in remodeling. Hand planes and other hand tools of the like are not where I come from, however, it does not mean that I cannot or do not like using them. One of my favorite hand tools is a hand plane made by woodworker Mike Shea from California. It is uncomplicated in both it’s function and design.
