A few days ago I contacted the editor of the newsletter for Esperanto-USA, the national organization for Esperantists in the U.S.A. I sort of know the guy from a few contacts over the years. I basically queried if he’d be interested in articles in Esperanto about woodworking. The answer was yes. As it turns out he wants the sort of articles that I would be putting in my book, a basic how-to approach. While this is not a paying gig, I think it’s advantageous for me as it give...
Come out of the Virtual World and join us…! We are a MeetUp Group… just getting started (Mid-February 2016)... up over 150 woodworkers so far and adding about 50 people per month… but that will pick up. We have not even started with Social Media. We will be meeting various places in NE Ohio… at members’ shops… trade shows… classrooms… and social events. We recently had our first Member Shop Tool and Technique Demo… a Hand Tool Sharpening...
First of all I want to thank many of you for the friendly welcom you have given me. And then I will be brief because actually it is a very small and simple project, but perhaps it can be useful for someone. You can watch the building process on this video: https://youtu.be/5gfi6SDOa3c I still need a large stationary belt sander but is a future project for me. For now, this is a very simple solution to do and that has helped me a lot at time to work. The main thing this stand is that it ...
My wife and I visited friends in the Charlotte, NC, area and went to an art gallery in downtown Charlotte.I was blown away when I saw this segmented turning! It has to be 3’ x 3’! Immaculate!!
Last fall I received a call from my father inquiring if I wanted my great-grandfather’s tool box; all he knew about it was that it was extremely heavy, locked, and had been sitting in the corner as long as he could remember. Jumping at the chance to own a piece of family history I told him I would take it and a few weeks later it arrived to my garage via cargo trailer. Escorted by my father and uncle we managed to unload and extremely heavy trunk that seemed to weigh in the hundreds of ...
Hello again, I decided to take some time out of my schedule and blog about a woodworking school/workshop in Taipei, Taiwan. Before I get to writing this post I decided to let you know that this post is going to be a little long because I feel like the I need to put it in one post as opposed to several parts like I normally do. Normally, it can be quite difficult when searching for woodworking schools/workshops outside USA, Canada, Australia and England, but finding one that also tea...
So this remodel has consumed my life for the last four months, some good and some wee, just nutz!!I have very much enjoyed getting to know all of you who have sat thru my endless dribble and actually read this blog. Your comments have been very inspiring to me. There were some days I felt like just moving on and leaving it alone, but I felt I owed it to you to get this done. I hope that I can use this new amazing space to show you what fun things I am lucky enough to get to work on and help y...
This post never made it to lumberjocks from my website, so I decided to add it. So, the last time I blogged. I wrote a post about a woodworking museum in Yerevan, Armenia. If you are a reader of my blog you might be asking yourself, weren’t you just in Queretaro, Mexico getting ready to settle in and blog about your woodworking experience. As it turns out, that once the Mrs. and I arrived, it did not feel right. So instead of telling you why I did not move there in this post, I h...
In the streets around the museum there are stores selling wood sculptures in various costs and sizes. In the picture below starting left to right: a typical store, a piece of wood, a wall hanging wood sculpture, two wood sculptures and last is the stores owners. Can you guess which one was the most expensive piece? If you guessed any other thing than the “piece of wood” then you were wrong. That is right, the piece of wood is the most expensive one apparently in all of Taiw...
When I first starting thinking about writing this article, I came up with several ideas. At first, I wanted to give the article a sense of mystic and intrigue, but lets face it I am not Herman Melville, and why would I want to be? Then, I tried writing it like an information piece, but in the end it sounds like a term paper. I was just about to give up, when I decided to revert back to myself and just write it without thinking about too much. This post is about a wood sculpture museum ...
