My daughter wrote this article for my website and I thought I would share it with you all! Written By: Bonnie Bartay Some of my favorite memories as a young kid are spending time with my dad in his workshop. From a very young age, I remember playing in his shop while he worked.

I have never actually done...

Cauls with applied packing tape are used to distribute even clamping pressure to all glued segments. The clear packing tape protects the cauls ...
Well my daughter has made me do this blog so I have fellow craftsmen to hang out with. It’s going to be my tips, tricks, and personal opinions on the business of wood working after 60 years.

Hey LJ! Sorry to anyone who got the wrong video first time they viewed, I embeded the wrong video but that has now been rectified.
