I just got the workshop page on my site loaded with images for a good peek inside my shop. You get a good look at my various types of storage, workbenches, and layout. I also give a rundown of the shop stats Everybody’s shop space is different but I hope that it will inspire ideas for your workshop. Look for the new issue of America’s Best Workshops 2013 to be released at the end of March, my shop is among those featured with a 4 page spread. Check out my new shop page he...
Hey guys! I have been working hard on my site so I can better “Share the Love~Share the Knowledge” and so I have switched my site to a new platform and am on my 3rd template as I try to see what will fit my needs the best. I still have a lot of work to do as far as adding project galleries. I will probably continue to change some details like color, but the format is what I am focused on for now. I just wanted to get the right template and basic layout going before I put too...
I am officially set up now on my new website platform. There are new features and better functionality that I can see will help me to connect with the woodworkers to better share my experience and knowledge. THE BAD NEWS IS… Sadly, my workshop gallery is down for the moment. The new template was incompatible with previous gallery, so I will have to completely repost the shop tour. I know by the website stats, the workshop tour is the most popular feature and the pictures are dow...
Hey Everybody!

Be sure to head to the Woodworking Shows to see a great furniture maker, LumberJock member, and my good friend, Andy Chidwick.

In this video I share some tips and suggestions as I show how I handle and transport some of my projects without damaging them. Everybody’s needs are different, but I hope that sharing these tips will help inspire solutions for your needs when handling & transporting projects. Your friend in the shop, Todd A.

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.

I just finished up the video for applying edge banding to melamine. This video follows Part 1 on how to get clean cuts in melamine, which can be quite a challenge without the right blade and techniques. Once the melamine is cut, often it will need to have edge banding applied. So I cover this topic in Part 2. I could have made a 2 minute video that shows me applying a piece with an iron and trimming the excess, but that can leave a person with a lot of questions. In these videos, you no...

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...
De’ja’ vu Last year I built a Shaker Bench for one of our favorite local charities. I was not going to make the deadline and Brian Havens flew out at a moment’s notice to help me build & deliver the bench just in time to be fashionably late rather than just late. (See blog entry here at LJ.) This year I started my project a couple of weeks early but things did not go as smoothly as I would have liked on the project nor my schedule. As a professional contractor my s...
