Making the Podcast Rounds

11-13-2012 04:27 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

Hey guys – I was a guest on a couple of podcasts last week (I am way behind on timely blog entries.) First, I joined LJ member Marc Spagnuolo at the WoodWhisperer Guild. You need to be a member to access this podcast where we talk about doing built-ins. We cover several of the techniques, strategies and things to look for as you design and install a built-in project. If you are on the fence about if you should join the Guild or not, I will say that as a person that makes my living...

10-07-2010 01:53 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options After taking a couple days to catch up on stuff, I am finally ready to share my Woodworking in America experience with you. This was my first WIA and my expectations were building all year long. I even vowed to skip IWF (the big tool show in Atlanta), just to make sure I could focus all my attention on this education-focused conference. And am I ever glad I did! The MarketplaceThe show consists of two main areas: ...

Woodworking In America 2009: Furniture Construction and Design #3: The Tools are Here

08-21-2009 06:40 PM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got the tools today so I thought I would show you guys what I got. First you can try to guess the hidden objects. They are shown in their new protective coverings for storage as I am currently workshopless. And if that wasn’t a word before then I just created it. They are the Lee Valley / Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane and the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Block Plane in Bronze. I actually got the Lie-Nielsen plane at Woodcraft a few weeks before the conference but I haven’t...

I got most of my order in the mail today from Lee Valley. That reminded me that I haven’t written anything about the actual sessions at the conference yet but I promise I will get to that. As you could expect: Woodworking Magazine and Popular Woodworking Magazine has covered some of the conference on their blog. I put links here for you to look over until I get my impressions up here. WIA: Touchdown WIA: New Tools WIA: The Hand and the Machine WIA: New Smoother from Kunz ...

I am in the process of attending the Woodworking in America: Furniture Construction and Design Conference in St. Charles, IL. Today was the first day and I am very impressed so far. I plan to put up some more detailed descriptions of the sessions later on when I get a little more time. I just wanted to let everyone know that they have a nice exhibition hall with many vendors. Lie-Nielsen is there along with Lee Valley and many others. Lee Valley is giving 15% off and free shipping for any ...

Woodworking in America 2008 #10: WIA: Part 3 of 3 - Forgotten Workbenches and Workholding

12-14-2008 03:13 PM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

This is the last video on my blog on the session on Forgotten Workbenches and Workholding. More to come yet… From my blog: This episode is all about workholding: 1. Face vises – Racking is the main reason The Schwarz does not like them. 2. Leg vise: Elegant, cheap, GREAT! 3. Shoulder vise: Best choice for dovetailing drawers – it is fast. It is great, but too complex. 4. Crochet: Used with holdfasts, it is great, and cool. 5. Sliding dog vise: Otherwise ca...

Woodworking in America 2008 #9: WIA: Part 2 of 3 - Forgotten Workbenches and Workholding

From my blog: In this video episode Christopher Schwarz, Editor of Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine, presents, discusses, and points out pros and cons of several benches and their features: 1. The European bench: He is not happy with this form, but also is not anti-European-form. His problem with this one: People take old principles and apply them to other benches. He likes to apply the kitchen door test (typical sizes we work on) and the kitchen carcase test (pushes him to na...
