In the above video I share another one of my absolute favorite books about traditional woodworking: “The Handplane Book” by Garrett Hack. Read my original blog post here. I hesitated to buy this book because I thought it would just be a small book about someone’s handplane collection, but I finally decided to order it online. I was wrong about this book being slim on information. This book is exceptional and very helpful. Not only does the book have beautiful photographs of h...

In this episode we build the router jig of my dreams! Part one of two… It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!)
In my above video I share a eureka moment that I had when trying to apply reverse clamping pressure against the walls of my dovetailed tool chest. The original blog post is here. I discovered that I could simply reverse my small Bessey clamp’s jaw and it would push outward instead of inward! It’s kind of hard to explain in words, so just watch the video! I’m not sure if any other clamps can be reversed like this, but I hope it helps. Here is where you can buy these clamps: -Besse...
REASONS FOR MAKING THE CONVERSION: I have a very small shop and I couldn’t move the dust collection system (dcs) where it would be out of the way. The cloth bag filter sat so high that it would hit duct work in my shop. I also didn’t like emptying the plastic debris bag. It was difficult to remove and once removed debris from up in the cloth bag would fall to the floor. I searched out all of the information I could find on making dcs conversions. One conversion that intrigue...
Here is part one of my attempt at Tag Frids three legged stool. We begin by cutting the mortise and tenon and an angled dovetail. http://youtu.be/WeYBQMULTm8?list=UUoiFVDvzJX8tXXF5GsUPc_Q
In this video, Scott Enloe, a woodwright from Great Falls, Montana, gives some insight into his business and shares with us some good advice on the business of woodworking. You can see Scott’s gallery of work at www.ScottsBoatWorks.com. He does some pretty nice work building everything from fine furniture to strip canoes that have been featured in Playboy Magazine. Bet I got your attention now, don’t I? Strip Canoe…Playboy…it’s just too funny but true:) ...

Life has thrown some pretty nasty hardballs at us this past year and a bit and my kids and I are starting to recover. We we’re sitting in our rec room (do people still call ‘em that? :-) and my daughter said it would be nice to have a coffee table in front of the TV. I’d been trying really hard to think of something we could all do together so I half jokingly said why don’t we build one. Lauren and Paul jumped on the idea. We got out the tape measure and use...
