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...
Hi Lumberjocks! This is the High school that I got my first formal training in woodworking. This video shows the most popular features of the school. It’s too bad it doesn’t show the fabulous woodworking shops. They had every tool plus industrial sized machines. It didn’t only have woodworking, but Machine shop, Welding, blacksmith, sheet metal, electricity, foundry, Drafting, & Aeronautics. That’s about all I can think of now. I just thought of s...
Charles Rohlfs Oak Desk, Stickley Ellis Table & Iconic Crafts, Nelson Atkins Art Gallery Kansas City
Wow! I made it, I finally made it, and oh what a surprise to find a museum with Iconic Furniture pieces intermixed with a lot of European, Asian, Native American, Egyptian, and some strange Contemporary Stuff that someone else calls “art”. ————————- WARNING: If you are easily offended by my silly notions of what looks good and is well built, please don’t read any farther. I’m just giving my opinions, that is what ...
I’ve been searching craigslist for that perfect table saw for a month now it seems and lo and behold the table saw that is perfect for me popped up and I was lucky enough to grab it. I paid all of 200 dollars for a 10” Delta/Rockwell 1.5 HP unisaw in working condition. I was walking through the Nelson Atkin’s Museum in Kansas City, MO in fact when I came across it and I immediately started making calls to make sure I could secure it. Being on tour at the moment my buddy J...
A quick tour of my shop
No sound, no music, no commentary… far too much going on…enjoy the tour….
I show you around my shop and give a few quick tool reviews.
I’m a part of this great website because I am a woodworker and enjoy new adventures into woodworking with my LJ friends but my passion is for woodcarving. I have been carving for about 14 years and have taken a couple of classes from Wayne Barton the world renowned chip carver. Wayne Barton not only gives classes but because he studied carving in Switzerland he also puts together a 12 day Swiss tour every year. The wife and I have been saving our money for the Swiss trip ever since my f...
A New Toy For Work:) I just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6 for recording my work. One of the great things about it is that it has a 25mm wide angle lens. This is makes it great for taking pictures of my installed work in small rooms. I thought that taking photo & video of the shop would be a good test drive for it and a good way to share a tour of the American Craftsman Workshop. This video was entirely shot with this camera (except for the photos of the camera itself:) Music: ...
Earlier this week I took a tour of the Forrest Products Laboratory in Madison Wisconsin. The Madison Woodworkers’ Guild, which I joined recently arranged for the tour. I have to say it was 2 and 1/2 hours of awesome. I wish I had a camera with me. Maybe one of the other members will share.This June 4, the FPL will celebrate their 100th anniversary and they will have a public open house on June 26th. It would be worth the trip.The Lab tests all sorts of wood products, from nano-fibe...
