340 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

I recently converted my single stage dust collector into a 2-stage system using the Super Dust Deputy by Oneida. In this video I share my initial impressions and performance of the system. Click Here For Video I do not cover all the modifications but you will see the overall setup and I give a basic price breakdown of the cost. I will cover the specifics of my conversion in the future. If you have been thinking of getting a Super Dust Deputy to convert your single stage DC into a 2-s...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #12: Reorganizing and the Domino Effect

1778 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

It Just Won’t Stop! I tore out some double doors at the end of the shop that I never use, I need the wall space to hang my clamps. I figure that since I started doing this little reorganization I might as well finish it. I usually bite things off a couple days at a time and then wish that I had finished or done more. There never seems to be a convenient time to interrupt my work schedule for improving shop conditions, but the payoff is always big when it comes to improved work fl...

Shaker Bench for Charity 2011 #3: Shaker Bench Completed In Time (Just Barely!)

1264 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

Whew! That was a close one! Brian Havens and I worked on the Shaker Bench for Charity right up to the last minute. The social mixer and appetizers started at 6:00p.m. This was when the items went on view for both the silent and live auction. I was spraying the final coat of lacquer on the drawers at 5:50p.m. while Brian showered and changed. Then I showered and changed while Brian and my wife Rita loaded the bench in the vehicle. By the time I got dressed, the bench was al...

Shaker Bench for Charity 2011 #4: Video Wrap-up of the Shaker Bench for Charity with Brian Havens

1252 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

Well Guys, I finally had an opportunity to sit down and edit a video that Brian Havens and I shot before he jetted back to his home in California. We had a great time working together on this project and it did well to support a local Billings organization that serves the developmentally disabled community. I also want to mention that a local LumberJock MTBrian also helped out and it was a good thing he helped what he did because we barely, just BARELY made it in time to the auction as ...

Feedback on New ACW Site

529 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

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...

Custom Hand Plane by Mike Shea

429 days ago 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. It has a black walnut sole that glides on wood surfaces like it is on wet ice. I have purchased manufactured ha...

680 days ago 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...
