Here, I will give some context of how woodworking skills apply to the real world using my experience as one example. In my case, I get projects because of my remodel business. In 1997 I started out as a handy man with no training or skills in the trades and no tools. I had a contractor that guided me and gave me a lot of work for my first year and...

Woodworking with the kids #1: First Projects

03-15-2010 03:27 PM by David Craig | 20 comments »

This weekend, my boys uttered the words most Woodworking adults want to hear from the younger generation “We want to make something!” My sons have always been supportive in my endeavors to work on things. They like seeing the things I made and will often ask me if I can make this or that for them. When I started this hobby, one of my goals was to reduce dependency on the cheap goods at the stores and reduce the mentality that one needs to buy instead of making what is needed. (...

Extremely Average #57: Afternoon Delight

02-28-2010 04:05 AM by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

The memories are always there, just waiting for a reason to bubble to the surface. It can be the mouth watering smells, wafting out from a bakery, or the glow of a corn field as the day gets chased away by dusk. For me, it is often the first few bars of a favorite song. Today, driving back from Cedar Rapids, as the sun was setting, and the snow cover fields seemed somewhat less frigid, my childhood memories came knocking. As the car took me home, the radio took me back to 1976. I was ...
