I stayed quite busy yesterday, doing one of the things that I love to do. I really love so many of my creative aspects, and switching from one to the other back and forth always seems to keep me freshly excited about every one of them. Yesterday I spent the day at the saw. I had my headphones on and I was into a 'classical' mood. I got lost listening to my three favorite composers – Rachmoninoff, Beethovan and Mozart. It made a good thing even better. Before long, the three...
This is a quick run down of one way to go from rather large Walnut slabs to a beautiful dining table top. By using large vintage woodworking machinery and new world wood working tools I take two 22’’ wide 2.5’’ thick Walnut slabs from rough raw lumber to a soon to be dining table top. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCoSTnI1JpA
I recently found a bunch of these guys in a stack of rough cherry and Walnut lumber.

This is my first time using a Blog, so I’ll give it my best. Long ago I documented my work in the shop with pictorial essays (they are still on my website), but after a while started to realize that video would be more effective. I currently have something like 113 videos on my channel at YouTube (AndyPitts1000), mostly documenting single projects, but my series “Saturday in the Woodworking Shop” is a weekly ongoing monologue about what is going on here. Please feel free to ...
In this video I show to take a gnarly piece of walnut and get square 4 sides (s4s), the starting point for any woodworking project. After you watch this, take a look at Mitch’s video with the link above. In a few days, we will be releasing another video that talks about the pro’s and cons of each method along with some tips and tricks. If you have an idea for another round of Hand or Power, please leave a comment below or use #handorpower on Twitter Mitch’s Hand Too...
Hello Everyone,Just put a new video up on YouTube. In this video we use cutoffs from past projects to build a really cool dog bowl stand with turned legs. As the video will show I’m not the best with a lathe but I got the job done with no catches.Here is a link to watch the video. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdGQ49ph3eg
This past weekend I was terribly busy and I had a wonderfully fun time. While I loved creating my last huge project, it felt really good to be able to do some other things. When I work on one thing, I often get ideas for other projects to follow. I have learned to write these ideas down in a file so that later on when I am looking for something new to do, I have lots to choose from. You wouldn't believe how long the list is! I call it my 'job security' though and it seems that the...
Okay, my friend Rob from Robbshop sent me this beautiful and amazing Cigar Smoking Station after I sent him my first good Invisio-Hinge box. He jokingly said in the comments section that if I didn’t know what to do with the box that I knew where I could send it, so I did, but now he makes me this absolutely stunning smoking station. I am always amazed at the quality of workmanship he puts out, but this is really special. Rob is one of those rare woodworkers who has that gift for j...
Working with reclaimed wood can be very rewarding once the final product comes together. Unless you are purchasing it from someone who has already pulled the nails and cleaned the surface be prepared to put some effort into preparing it for projects. Collecting and preparing the raw materials often requires a lot of hard work. Having worked with a lot of reclaimed wood over the past several years more and more projects are demanding it especially since completing a barn tear down over the pas...
