How Did Sam Maloof's Rocker Inspire Us with That First Glance?

02-18-2011 03:08 PM by Charles Brock | 2 comments »

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...

Shop Skills #3: Sharpening Card Scrapers - The Lost Scene...

12-30-2008 04:38 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 27 comments »

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...

Cutting Small Parts On The Miter Saw

02-11-2016 02:47 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

In this video I share how I cut small parts on the miter saw. I am sure this one will be cause for active commentary from the safety police and maybe the hand tool junkies for not using a fancy hand saw to cut small pieces. Well, this is the way I do it in the American Craftsman Workshop. Because if the tool doesn’t make any noise and throw a rooster tail of sawdust, how am I supposed to know that any work is getting done? I hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful;) Rem...

My Birthday: A Catalyst for Change I just turned 50. Yeah, that’s right – 50. Hitting this benchmark in life, has made me take a look at where I am at, where I am going, and if I am on course to achieve my goals. The fact is, I am not, and I realized that I need to do something radical to change my direction in order to meet my goals. Hooked From the Beginning I made my first post on the LumberJock community in May 2007 and I posted my first YouTube video at the end...

03-16-2010 04:54 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 4 comments »

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...

Update on Instructional DVD's Discount

03-17-2010 03:16 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 0 comments »

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 ...

Update For The American Craftsman Shop Class

12-05-2015 12:22 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

I Really Quit! Since I made my announcement to quit working as a contractor, I have been working my butt off to finish up the projects that I have obligations to. I really did quit taking new jobs as a contractor, and I dropped other projects that I had been looking at, but had no legal obligation to. The other day I finished installing a 17’ banquette for a new restaurant in town. It was the second one I have done for them, and the project had been in the pipeline for a couple of mo...
