Bye gone Era #1: The Radial Arm saw, the unsung hero

10-12-2015 12:24 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 4 comments »

I remember growing up as a kid, walking into my uncle’s wood shop, the fresh smell of sawdust in the air, the beautiful sound of his radial arm saw cutting through a piece of lumber, the versatility of this wonderful machine, there wasn’t a single thing this saw couldn’t do. Every piece of moulding in my Uncle’s house was made on that saw, every door frame he built, he used his radial arm saw, he ripped with it, he cross cutted with it, he did all his dadoes and rabbet...

Splinters of thought #2: Getting Things in Perspective

10-20-2015 02:03 PM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Drawing in Perspective You don’t have to be an artist to be a woodworker, but a good foundation in perspective drawing can come in very helpful. I have the fortunate history of many art classes to pull from and I am often asked by clients to draw up a design that I have proposed.

I am a firm believer that a woodworker should always keep a journal of design ideas near...
