I think I first found Steve Ramsey’s videos on YouTube while looking for videos of or about Norm Abram. Steve had put up a short video, a vlog post really, about Norm’s retirement. Steve is a YouTube woodworking superstar. He puts out a project almost every week (occasionally he takes a vacation week,) and he’s the one who sets the standard for style and popularity. He definitely does not need any plug from me, but I knew I’d need to acknowledge him eventually...

Dear friends with LumberJocks!
Here is the finished woodworking plan.

Woodcarving has been around just about as long as man has been upon this earth. Due to wood being a material that will not withstand the test of time, woodcarvings must be protected and taken care of if they are to endure. Unlike stone carvings or sculptures that might be buried for thousands of years, due to wars and conquests or for whatever the reason and survive, imagine what would happen to a woodcarving or woodsculpture under those conditions. Between the elements and the insects, in a ...
Well, last week we had one heck of a storm here in Waco! We suffered some damage, broken limbs, scratches to the cars and a wall damaged on my tiny shop. The wall is patched, the tree debris is cleared away and I found most of my sand paper and other stuff that wasn’t secured well. What the storm reminded me of is that we face all sorts of unexpected storms in life and usually panic at first glance. The damage seems overwhelming and we think nothing will ever be the same. The truth ...

I’m putting together a video series for Norwood Sawmills that’s all about wood – from tree to finished product. I’ll look at logging (from several perspectives), milling (from several perspectives), lumber treatment, and woodworking (from several perspectives). I’m very excited to have the honor of producing this series and I hope I can do all of my fellow craftsmen proud. This link will take you to the second teaser on YouTube. After the video is over, it will a...
It is far easier to talk about than to do, but you have to get right in order to do good work. You have to think straight, to get your concentration right, to get your mind working with your hands and not against them. Now this can take hours for me some days before I finally get focused enough to work. But when I do then the work just flies and the time whizzes by and I get something done. It feels great. But it’s a matter of concentration and when we enter the shop our mind is in a hundr...
