A Strategy for Woodworking #57: The Battleship

08-03-2015 02:55 PM by Gary Rogowski | 11 comments »

Projects come, projects stay. I walked around the shop one day to count the projects I had started only to put down for one reason or another. I got depressed by the number 20. Unfinished for any number of reasons. I cut a panel too short on one. I wasn’t sure of the curve of another. Not hard to make a new panel, 0r try to mock up the curve. That logic does not fly in the face of a simple defeat. I just let the projects linger, go to your corner. What is it that stumps me? Probably this ...

It Starts With a Workbench #3: Project: Get this thing off the ground

06-29-2015 11:43 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

It seemed so simple when I thought about it, a workbench seemed like the perfect place to start my woodworking hobby, then from there I can easily figure out what tools I need to complete the job. As it turns out, you can’t exactly start with just a workbench. You need to get off the ground before you can get your hobby off the ground. First I really fussed over what type of bench I wanted to make. Well, that wasn’t very fruitful. I WANTED to make a bench that was 92” lon...

My Gringo Workshop Project #3: part 2.5

06-29-2015 11:44 AM by thegringowoodworker | 0 comments »

Why am I writing part 2.5 as opposed to part 3? Well,I wanted to take some time to point out several things that I may have insinuated and update some points. The article was not written to point out the mistakes of the fine woodworking, but to illustrate the inaccuracy of information. When the press writes up the information without writing about the complete picture, I am in no way trying to point a finger and yell ”Lk!”, but to say, why only show a glass half full? I simply became i...

A Strategy for Woodworking #54: Being in the Shop

06-08-2015 01:21 PM by Gary Rogowski | 7 comments »

I cannot tell what woodworking does for most people. For some it is a simple hobby. It is a pastime where you get to work with some tools and build something nice or useful. For others it’s a job, how you make your money and provide for your family. Still for other woodworkers I think it is an important escape from the world. The shop becomes a spot where you can finally be in control for a change. You alone are responsible for the failures and successes at the bench. You get the credit fo...

One cool thing I saw at the Handworks event was this guy using a Treadle Spring Pole Lathe. His name is Jarrod Stone Dahl. I have a link to his website in the video’s description on YouTube. Anyway, I shot this very short video of him. I am also trying some new things with my YouTube videos. Please let me know what you like or don’t like about it! Thanks!Charlie View on YouTube

My Gringo Workshop Project #1: Part 1

04-27-2015 09:03 PM by thegringowoodworker | 0 comments »

Before, I start writing about my workshop project. I was looking for a workshop picture for my blog. I was surprised to find one from my alma mater SCCC Wood Construction Center. I was amazed that the picture was available and could be reused via Commons Wikimedia. Very nice picture and oh, how the picture brought back memories. Good, good times! Anyways, onward with the post! So, the idea for this post comes in connection with the previous post about the Woodies. When I started thinki...

Why Mexico? Why Not ...?

04-17-2015 02:12 PM by thegringowoodworker | 2 comments »

Like I mentioned in my post Stay Tuned , I have been traveling for some time. So, why Mexico? Why not Africa, Asia, The Americas or Europe? Well, I am just going to tell you why Mexico and from there you can dissect the reasons why I did not move to the other places. Reason #1. SportsOnce I finally get a bi-weekly video going on, you will hear me bring up Liverpool, Mexico futbol, American football, WRC and F1 from time to time. Mexico gives me access to all these sports on the tele. Th...
