A Woodworking Marathon for Charity

1275 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

OK guys – you don’t hear much from me because I am swamped with work. This takes me away from blogging and from sharing with woodworkers. So one of the things that it detrimentally impacted is my schedule to build a Shaker Bench for Charity. To compound my schedule dilemma I thought the auction was Saturday night and turns out it is Friday night. This morning I throw a Tweet out there asking where are all the woodworkers that want to help me just for free, just for the exper...

Finally Learning SketchUp

1726 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

Computer Challenged I had just bought my MacBook in 2006 and was still learning how to use it when I bought the pro version of SketchUp. I had grand delusions of doing all of my design work on the computer. I refer to this as a delusion because with running my own remodel business, learning how to use my first computer, and learning SketchUp I did not have enough time. There was just too much to learn at one once, I had no reference point for understanding the principles of computers or ho...

Cutting Metal in the Woodshop

892 days ago 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.

Video Quick Tip

560 days ago 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.

Bookcase For Charity

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

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...

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.

The American Craftsman Workshop Published in WOOD Magazine!

687 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...

Reinforced Mounting Lid For The Dust Deputy

491 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 6 comments »

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...

How I Sell My Woodworking Projects

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

In this video I answer one of the most common questions that I get from woodworkers: How do I sell my woodworking projects? In this video I share how I sell my work, but since this is just one point of view, I also interviewed 3 other woodworkers and I will release what they share in the next videos that follow. Even though we are all woodworkers, we all build different things and have different experiences in selling our items. This will provide a lot more information and inspiration t...

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

1784 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...
