Forgive My Insensitivity… A public Thank You is in order before I go any further. I had some great support from two individuals that are a part of LumberJocks. I relied heavily on Dave Pruett for “on call” support to figure out how to edit / process / and post my video. I need to thank Marc Spagnuolo as well. I did not continually call him like Dave, but his advice and pointers were taken to heart and helped me out as well. As with my woodworking, my achievement...
A New Video!I am excited to get out another video. They take a lot of time to create and, thankfully, I have been busy this summer with my business but it hampers my ability to make videos! I am advancing in my skills and you will notice that I added photos documentary-style in this video (I love the Ken Burns effect.) Some Thoughts on Design and Construction The most difficult part of making furniture is creating the design. I share some of the thought process for creating my Shaker...

Andy teaches sculpted furniture techniques in Stephensville, Montana and he will be giving se...
Sharing A Good Deal! Hey guys, I wanted to give you a heads up on a discount offer from Scott Morrison~Fine Woodwoodworker. I got a couple of instructional DVD’s from Scott and I liked them so I wrote up a review. While writing it up a thought occurred to me to contact him and see if he would extend any special offers to the woodworkers. He sent back an offer for 15% off any DVD’s, templates, and the new butterfly joint kit until the end of March 2010. That gives everyone...
What makes Sam Maloof’s work so attractive at first glance? When I saw my first picture of his rocker in the old 1983 article in Fine Woodworking, What jumped out at me and said, “Wow”? What inspired all that has been said and done by woodworkers and lovers of fine furniture based on that initial look at his rocker? Maloof was a master woodworker, designer, finisher, personality and other things wonderful but my thought is to capture all of us so totally with that first g...
UPDATE ON DISCOUNT Scott Morrison informed me that the PayPal discount field was experiencing some problems. To get the 15% discount at this time, the buyer will have to pay the full price upfront, but just email him with the information of the transaction and the “Captain Clippinger” special (it’s because I asked:) and he will refund the discount back to you right away. I can vouch for Scott answering his emails pretty regularly because whenever I have had a question ...
