Yeah, that’s right – 2 years… I plan on finishing this little cabinet up this weekend and I will post more details. The cabinet is made of black walnut and the drawers are made of curly ambrosia maple. This is a great combination. I started this project 2 years ago and I am finally going to cross it off the “unfinished projects” list. Today I got all the little drawers fitted and tomorrow I will cut the corners to add the contrasting keys. Then it wi...

Click HERE for Hi-Resolution Version This was posted this earlier on my blog The Folding Rule Show. The video highlights construction details of The Cooper House and some of Todd’s furniture. I just had the distinct pleasure of a cyber visit with Todd Clippinger, a talented designer and craftsman. I met Todd through one of the woodworking forums . . . well, the best woodworking forum; Lumberjocks.com! A first for me last night, but typical of Todd’s many talents and chara...
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.

When it comes to sharing woodworking with my grandkids, I keep it simple. In fact, I really don’t care if they take a shine to woodworking, I would just rather they get the opportunity to be creative. When they come over for a visit, they don’t ask if they can do woodworking, they just ask, “Can we build?” At this point, I have done very few structured projects, I usually just let the kids have at it with the bin of wood scraps. Kids don’t need to be to...

Well, it’s finally here, the first installment of my discussion with fellow LJ member, Scott Morrison ~ Finewoodworker (he looks much better in person than in his avatar.) I had a great time talking with Scott and I hope that you enjoy sitting in on our conversation. I must admit that I thought of many more questions after I left Scott’s shop. That may be enough excuse to get with Scott in the future for another session;) In the first installment Scott shares his background in ...
Since I did the Dust Deputy Review in Episode 27, I have been getting questions and have decided to answer them publicly with a video so everyone may benefit from the answers. In this video I show how I reinforced the 5 gallon bucket lid that I mount the Dust Deputy to. In Episode 28 I gave information to help the woodworkers decide which shop vacuum size might be the best to use with the Dust Deputy. Here are the last 2 videos: Episode 27: Dust Deputy Review Episode 28: Choosi...
