Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

03-30-2010 05:49 AM by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #69: My Zone of Wood Art

03-23-2010 08:35 AM by frank | 8 comments »

My Zone of Wood Art ….art is the interpretation of what is before you, and therefore needs no-out-side influence to make it more then it is in this moment. The problem that many have with art is that it is all-ways regulated to some other plane of our existence, out-side the time-work of where we are now. Because the many see art as so ‘other’, these many lost souls to the world of art, will in-deed all-ways be seeking for art as if it is some-thing that is found in the so ...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #6: Sharpening

03-22-2010 04:20 PM by chscholz | 2 comments »

Introduction to Sharpening of Chinese tools One 15th century contractor complained that his craftsmen spent about half of their time sharpening their tools. Considering the fact that Chinese woodworkers had a preference for gnarly old wood, the harder the better, this does not come as a surprise. History of Chinese Sharpening Tools Little has been written about Chinese tools, but almost nothing has been written about Chinese sharpening stones. In his book China at Work, Hommel mention...

Woodworking Skills In The Real World

03-18-2010 04:58 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 21 comments »

Woodworkers Want To Know Woodworkers often ask me how to make a living out of the shop. This is a short question that requires a long answer. 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. (...
