Hello fellow woodworkers. My name is Mario. I am from the beautiful twin island nation of Trinidad and Tobago http://discovertnt.com. I am new to the art of woodworking. I have no formal training.

Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like.

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. As an adult, I have helped my father with his construction business and now with Chris Mobley Designs. I do all of the paperwork part and even draw out plans but he does the real magic. I have never actually done...
I am constantly amazed at the beauty I find here on Lumberjocks. It’s here that generations will share the same “cherish” boxes, prepare meals on the same butcher block island, and rock grandchildren to sleep in the same chair created by our minds and hands. Indeed, woodworking is as much as a pastime as it is a journey. Each piece created here will likely last for generations and that’s the true beauty and meaning of woodworking…in my opinion. ...
The Cosmati wood inlay banding is glued up in part 2 of this YouTube woodworking video. Watch how the wood segments are fit together to form the wood inlay banding log. See how the decorative pattern of the Cosmati design comes to life in this episode. You will see the woodworking method for gluing and clamping as demonstrated by the woodworker. 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. To start out – Here’s a beef of mine - You know out here in California we have a hard time getting certain finishing products due to EPA rules. Any other California woodworkers having this problem?
