American Craftsman Workshop Video Returns

01-28-2012 11:00 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 59 comments »

The Journey It’s been a lot of work to get to this point. Since taking a beating from the recession, I took all of the work I could get to recover over the last couple of years. Between working projects out of my shop, working with another contractor, and Rita opening a cafe in downtown Billings, there was not any free time to get out any blogs let alone video. I have been chomping at the bit to get back to sharing with the woodworking community. Sharing the craft with others has ...

Getting Clean Cuts in Melamine

05-07-2012 08:50 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 39 comments »

Melamine is notorious for chipping out when cutting. In this video I share my tools and techniques for creating clean cuts on both sides of melamine. The blade I use in the video is a Freud LU97R010. It makes the cut on the back side as clean as on the top side. The images of the cuts in the video are of the backside of the material where chip-out tends to occur. (I did not make that clear in the video.) In Part II I will show you how to apply edge banding. This is not just instr...

Demystifying Door Construction

07-20-2014 04:52 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 36 comments »

Constructing doors can seem intimidating. In this video I share with you how I built a custom door and demystify the process of door construction. Watch Demystifying 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 i...

Closing My Doors and Opening Others

11-28-2015 01:07 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 32 comments »

My Birthday: A Catalyst for Change I just turned 50. Yeah, that’s right – 50. Hitting this benchmark in life, has made me take a look at where I am at, where I am going, and if I am on course to achieve my goals. The fact is, I am not, and I realized that I need to do something radical to change my direction in order to meet my goals. Hooked From the Beginning I made my first post on the LumberJock community in May 2007 and I posted my first YouTube video at the end...

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...

Video Quick Tip

02-13-2013 07:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 22 comments »

I ran into a situation where my clamping needs exceeded my clamp capacities. I did a quick video to share my solution because it might help someone else in their shop. This video is “quick & dirty” because I wanted to try recording it on my iPhone. I don’t see myself doing that again, but the information is still good and clear. I hope you find it helpful.

Cutting Metal in the Woodshop

03-19-2012 01:17 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

As woodworkers we also need to cut metal once in a while. Also, having the ability to cut metal will allow us to create custom handles as I have on past projects. The question is how do we get a clean cut? Hacksaw? Reciprocating saw? Nope – portaband is the answer. The portaband is a powerful, smooth cutting portable bandsaw and a tool that I recommend for any custom woodworkding shop. Hope you enjoy! Your friend in the shop- Todd A. Clippinger Share the Love~Share ...
