Why Are You So Expensive?

09-25-2009 09:19 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 41 comments »

This is the question that I run into all the time when I bid jobs. Today I picked up materials for a small job and I mulled over this question as I stood staring at the cargo in my truck. Three boards of cherry and one sheet of 1/4” mdf core cherry… $217. Well, at least I got the job. Peace, Love, & Woodworking

Shop Skills #5: Using Toner to Add or Change Color

09-13-2009 05:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 35 comments »

Sorry for the False Start Guys… I had the privacy setting turned on when I posted to YouTube. (D’oh!) It’s Finally Here! Whew! It takes a lot of work to shoot a video, edit, and get it posted to the internet. I am still struggling with posting to the internet. My HD file sizes are too big to be accepted by BlipTv and YouTube, and once I get the size down to an acceptable limit, they lose quite a bit of quality. This is a bit frustrating and makes me sad to see al...

The American Craftsman Workshop Update Sept '09

09-09-2009 07:32 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 23 comments »

I hope that everyone had a good finish to the summer by spending quality time with the family over the long Labor Day weekend. My wife, Rita, and I went kayaking with friends on the Madison and Yellowstone Rivers here in Montana and we covered 17 miles between the two trips. Bald eagles and other wildlife were abundant and the scenery was – well it’s Montana so it was beautiful! My apologies for not being very active this summer here at LJ and for the lack of providing real...

Routers #1: Porter Cable Routers

07-27-2009 05:59 PM by RouterManiac | 16 comments »

Porter Cable Routers have always had a home in my workshop. Over the years they have changed and its interesting to see in what ways. I have noticed several things about how the routers are viewed. Rumor has it that Porter Cable has been bought out and that has several mixed emotions to it. I also have noticed several comments about the way that they are built and the quality of the parts used. I am really interested in some comments and thoughts from seasoned woodworkers. I read an int...

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...
