Woodworking in America 2008 #3: Woodworkers are Strange People.

11-16-2008 06:34 AM by Texasgaloot | 6 comments »

You can take the title different ways, but I have a specific “way” in mind. Over the last couple of days, I have rubbed elbows with (in no particular order) Adam Cherubini, Chris “The Schwartz” Schwartz, Roy “St. Roy” Underhill, Frank Klausz, Brian Boggs, Mike Dunbar, Robin Lee, Thomas Lie-Nielsen, Joel Moskewitz, Mike Wenzloff, Clarence Blanchard, Glen Huey, Robert Lang, John Economaki… the list could go on. I’m not dropping names here. I wa...

Woodworking in America 2008 #1: Day 0.5

11-14-2008 12:41 PM by Texasgaloot | 6 comments »

It’s 1994 or 95. (Or so, I can’t actually remember.) I’m living in Jessamine County, Kentucky, working in the campus library as I finish my master’s degree, when one of my computer-savvy friends mentions a fairly new “listserv” that he has run across, called the “Old Tools Listerv.” Of course, I’ve been a woodworker since I was a kid, so I have to check this out. Before long, my vehicle is sporting a bumper sticker that declares, ̶...

Woodworking in America 2008 #5: WIA Wrap-up

11-20-2008 07:27 PM by Texasgaloot | 3 comments »

I’ve had a couple of days now to rest up, process all that information, and try and heal from the sinus infection I picked up (when I lived in Kentucky, the sinus infection was how I was able to tell the seasons were changing!) I’ve been reflecting on the entire event, trying to figure out how I wanted to condense this huge volume of knowledge and impressions down into one blog, and it is not easy. Here are a few highlights of “Mack Goes to Berea:” 1. Woodworkers ...

Woodworking in America 2008 #4: Day 3, or like the song says, Is It Over Already?

11-17-2008 06:17 AM by Texasgaloot | 4 comments »

This is just like Christmas as a kid. Every day since early July you mark the calendar with hopeful anticipation (I want an Official Range Model Red Ryder BB gun with a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time!) and then you look around and realize you’re sitting in a sea of wrapping paper and you wish this could go on forever. My WIA day started with a hands-on clinic offered by Deneb Puchalski of Lie-Nielsen on, wait for it… wait for it… hand planing. Yes. Ooooo… Ahhhhh… My...

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...

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...

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 2008 #1: Dovetailing: Pins vs. Tails with Klausz and Underhill

11-20-2008 03:36 PM by Al Navas | 1 comment »

From my blog: I have posted three entries, each with video, of the Dovetailing: Pins vs. Tails session with Frank Klausz and Roy Underhill. I kept the editing to a minimum, to give the viewer a sense of “being there”. You will hear a little background noise, and the lighting might be a little on the dark side. But it reflects in a good way the way it was. I had an opportunity to attend the 2008 Woodworking in America conference in Berea, KY. It was a terrific event, attended...
