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...
Today I drove down and paid Obi a visit. I got to tour his shop and get caught up on his current projects. I got to see his Thorensen table and a number of other projects that were in progress. It was a great time. I had a request from David to take a lot of pictures and I know that a number of you have been bugging him for some pictures. He is currently building loft in his shop and is in the process of making floor joices. This is what can be seen sticking out of his shop door. ...
Well, here goes!Boy was this an interesting process. I don’t own a video camera and so I had to use the built-in iSight on my MacBook. That means that I had to walk around holding my laptop, trying to watch where I was walking, balance the computer in my hands, think, and chew gum all at the same time! I purposely didn’t tidy up the shop prior to filming. 1) I was taking a break from a project in process and 2) well, this is probably its “natural” state. Hopefully ...

I have had a broad head axe sitting around in my shop for almost a year now. It is sad to see that thing just sitting there. The other night I decided to go ahead and starting shaping a piece of wood for the handle. In this video I take you on the “other side” of the wood shop, the smithing area. While giving a short tour I show the axe handle and what tools I’m using to get it to it’s shape. Enjoy!
You might be a LumberJock if you visit the shop of a LumberJock and you fail to take any pictures. So Sorry. As I was leaving I said to my son-in-law. I didn’t take any picture and I think Charles was ready to kick us out. End of Story. Now the beginning. I sent Charles an e-mail a few months ago and told them that my son-in-law and daughter lived about 15 miles from him and sometime when I’m visiting them that I’d like to visit him. He replied make sure that you...
