Closing My Doors and Opening Others

11-28-2015 01:07 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 29 comments »

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...

How to Make a Ball-Jointed Doll in Wood

10-27-2015 06:37 PM by Donna Menke | 5 comments »

At long last, my latest booklet, How to Make a Ball-Jointed Doll in Wood, is finished and available. After a year of trials and errors I have made a darn good set of plans and instructions for my 7” ball-jointed doll. The booklet is 48 pages long- more a mini-book than a booklet- and has 120 full-color step-by-step photos as well as 6 pages with full-sized plans and assembly diagrams. Go to my web site to order your download:

Woodshop/Garage Build #7: Walls and Windows and a roof... Oh my!

09-16-2015 01:17 AM by BMichs75 | 2 comments »

The last weekend in August I finally got around to erecting the woodshop/garage structure. It took 7 guys and a Gradall 13 hours to erect the building and finish the roof substructure. We lifted the small walls off the 50 footers and set the long walls in place first, followed by the smaller walls. I will say my cheeks were clenched pretty tight when the first 50 foot wall was lifted and spun 180degrees before being set. It’s really amazing to see all the work and how fast things come t...

A Strategy for Woodworking #57: The Battleship

08-03-2015 02:55 PM by Gary Rogowski | 12 comments »

Projects come, projects stay. I walked around the shop one day to count the projects I had started only to put down for one reason or another. I got depressed by the number 20. Unfinished for any number of reasons. I cut a panel too short on one. I wasn’t sure of the curve of another. Not hard to make a new panel, 0r try to mock up the curve. That logic does not fly in the face of a simple defeat. I just let the projects linger, go to your corner. What is it that stumps me? Probably this ...

It Starts With a Workbench #3: Project: Get this thing off the ground

06-29-2015 11:43 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

It seemed so simple when I thought about it, a workbench seemed like the perfect place to start my woodworking hobby, then from there I can easily figure out what tools I need to complete the job. As it turns out, you can’t exactly start with just a workbench. You need to get off the ground before you can get your hobby off the ground. First I really fussed over what type of bench I wanted to make. Well, that wasn’t very fruitful. I WANTED to make a bench that was 92” lon...

My Gringo Workshop Project #3: part 2.5

06-29-2015 11:44 AM by thegringowoodworker | 0 comments »

Why am I writing part 2.5 as opposed to part 3? Well,I wanted to take some time to point out several things that I may have insinuated and update some points. The article was not written to point out the mistakes of the fine woodworking, but to illustrate the inaccuracy of information. When the press writes up the information without writing about the complete picture, I am in no way trying to point a finger and yell ”Lk!”, but to say, why only show a glass half full? I simply became i...
