I have my thoughts set on some new projects and an upcoming trip back to Hawaii for the eighth time. I ha...

It’s time to get busy again. The LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Winter 2011 are officially here and this time we have a very creative theme that should result in many amazing entries.

And here it is: Yin Yang – the dark and the light. Where would one be without the other?
