As we close out the final weekend of March, I can't help but be amazed at how quickly the year is passing by. I realize that for most who have been experiencing an exceptionally snowy winter, time is not moving fast enough. But for myself, it seems that these first three months of 2015 have zoomed by in a flash. Being busy can do that to you.I was pretty much out of commission yesterday as far as my computer goes. It seemed to have a problem running slow in the morning and after running a...
Greetings all well as promised last week here I go again. Another year of blogging about time in the shop and other wood related items. My daughter is now 8 and still spends time with me in the shop and is looking forward to being a part of this as well. In the meantime though lets get started. I attended the Woodworking Show this weekend in Baltimore, a few good seminars, some great shopping and even better time hanging out with LumberJocks and plenty of other woodworkers. Besides some new k...

I am very honored and excited to be given a shout out by two celebrities of the woodworking community, Steve Ramsey from Woodworking for Mere Mortals on presenting his folding stool and from Tom Iovino from Tom’s Workbench and the St Petersburg Woodcrafters Guild, as part of our Central Florida Woodworkers Guild participation at The Woodworking Show in Tampa this past weekend. http://www.woodworkingformeremortals.com/ http://tomsworkbench.com/ http://stpetewoodguild.wordpress.c...
Had a great day at the Woodworking show this weekend, met some LJ’s, kids turned pens, looked at lots of new stuff and of course spent money, otherwise known as retail therapy. To the LJer’s – great meeting you and getting to spend time talking on the floor, having coffee and at lunch. I gathered lots of great information on the pen turning, something I have never done and the kids loved. Grampa of course purchased a small lathe for them, it is now up to me to get some ...
Hi folks, Just an FYI. Asa Christiana and I headed down to NYC on Wednesday for an appearance on the Martha Stewart show. I was asked to bring a project as an FW staffer (brought one of my humidors) but my segment was cut, as they were running six minutes over in the rehearsal. That said, Asa had a bit of back-and-forth with Martha and it was a show devoted entirely to woodworking. If you’re home on a snow day and have the Hallmark channel, it’ll be on today at ten. It also str...
Well, the season is in full swing. Baltimore was a blast! Now it’s time to gear up for the New England show this weekend. I’ll be doing both my dovetail demo and my carving demo at the show this weekend. I might even have a few surprises lined up for you folks in the Massachusetts area. If you’re within a resonable driving distance, swing by the show and drop into the booth. It’s always great to meet other Lumberjocks.
What is a PechaKucha? I was excited to receive an invitation by Collaborative Design Architects to make a presentation at the most recent PechaKucha in Billings. I am sure you are wondering what this strange word is. First let me explain how it is pronounced: peh-CHAK-cha. This is a Japanese term which loosely translates as “chit chat” (as was shared with me.) A PechaKucha is an event for creative people to share their work with the public. I use the term “creative ...
Yesterday, as I was struggling with one of the warmest days here since coming to Nova Scotia, I received a thrilling phone call. It was from the Showcase Chair of the Northeastern Woodworkers Association. His name is Ken Evans and he called me regarding me teaching next March at the NWA’s annual showcase. I had mentioned that my friend, who is active in this large club, had approached me of the possibility of me going to Saratoga Springs in March to teach some classes on scroll saw...
