Woodworking in America 2008 #5: WIA Wrap-up

11-20-2008 07:27 PM by Texasgaloot | 3 comments »

I’ve had a couple of days now to rest up, process all that information, and try and heal from the sinus infection I picked up (when I lived in Kentucky, the sinus infection was how I was able to tell the seasons were changing!) I’ve been reflecting on the entire event, trying to figure out how I wanted to condense this huge volume of knowledge and impressions down into one blog, and it is not easy. Here are a few highlights of “Mack Goes to Berea:” 1. Woodworkers ...

Woodworking in America 2008 #4: Day 3, or like the song says, Is It Over Already?

11-17-2008 06:17 AM by Texasgaloot | 4 comments »

This is just like Christmas as a kid. Every day since early July you mark the calendar with hopeful anticipation (I want an Official Range Model Red Ryder BB gun with a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time!) and then you look around and realize you’re sitting in a sea of wrapping paper and you wish this could go on forever. My WIA day started with a hands-on clinic offered by Deneb Puchalski of Lie-Nielsen on, wait for it… wait for it… hand planing. Yes. Ooooo… Ahhhhh… My...

Ode To Small Shops #1: From Garage to Patio to Deck, My Small Shop Finally Has A Home

11-16-2008 10:10 AM by slooper | 4 comments »

My first shop was what I could squeeze into a one car garage, leaving enough room for the car of course, and a workbench in my crowded basement. My second “shop”, if one could call it that, was a combination of a 3’x6’ closet off the patio of my 1st floor apartment, the 6’x10’ patio with picnic table, and the back of a utility trailer. If I caught you scratching your head, let me explain. My big tools; table saw, jointer and planer; were in a storage she...

Vacation ignorance

10-17-2008 06:55 PM by Woodbutchery | 2 comments »

Just spent the last two weeks on vacation (I get a ton of it, and I can only roll-over so much of it), and I spent much of it on small projects around the house (see my 1st three project entries). Sometime yesterday I figured that I was just ignurnt about vacation-time, which a lot of people use to get away from doing things. Yet, here I was, straightening up the workshop, working on jigs, fixing up kitchen spaces … some people call it work. So why do I feel rested? I put it dow...

Mirrors from my Website blog #3: So What's Wrong With Being a Luddite, Anyway?

09-30-2008 07:57 PM by Texasgaloot | 5 comments »

Warning: the following is written in my blog’s wierd, arcane style… read at your own risk. Once again the literary blog of Chris Schwartz has stimulated my own (somewhat cranked) chain of consciousness toward the philosophical side of woodworking. “The Schwartz” recently offered a very positive review of Roy Underhill’s newest book (the link is here), which wasn’t fair because I can’t go out and buy it yet, and pre-ordering it only makes me feel like I’m 8 years old and it’s t...

Off-Topic: Social Networking

09-18-2008 08:24 PM by ahpeditor | 8 comments »

I’m a woodworker. I’m also an editor working for a company that publishes woodworking content. So I want to start with this disclaimer. My personal posts to the website have nothing whatsoever to do with my employer. All comments are my own. Period. Now the important stuff. My first post isn’t about woodworking. It happens to be about social networking and sites like this and how they can help good, worthy causes. Let me explain. This morning when I logged onto my comp...
