I signed up to attend Experience PRS 2009. It’s a Manufacturer show of the PRS guitars and also workshops, product demos and lots of Music Concerts. It’s all free if you sign-up before a cut of date. Approx 1700 people attended the 3 day event. The first day is for members of the Signature Club about 400 people attended that day. I’m not a member so I didn’t go. I went as a guest on the Friday and Sat, Sept 25 and 26 2009. It was more crowded on Friday than it w...

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 ...
Te Wai Pounamu, Aeteoroa- the Maori name for the south island of New Zealand. New Zealand consists of 2 islands roughly the same size but with 3 million people on the northern, slightly warmer island and only 1 million on the south island, the south island is clearly the winner in terms of beauty, wilderness and variety. We currently divide our time between two places : Christchurch, the largest city on the s.island with roughly 60% of the entire population living in this area, and our 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: ...
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...
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...

A quick tour of my shop
We cross the pond to Broadstone, Dorset, UK, and the shop of Phillip Edwards. Deb is again heartened by the presence of a fire-extinguisher, great organization and good lighting. I am completely agog in the presence of Phil’s collection of wooden-bodied and moulding planes designed and built with his own hands (in addition to the one received from the hands of Krenov). Phil is no stranger to Photoshop himself, and has a justly famous website:http://www.philsville.co.uk/ The cognoscen...
