I posted my latest furniture projects to the LJ gallery before I put them in my own website, that just shows how you guys rate, but I did get them added to my site and they have many more detailed shots of the construction. You will find them under the heading “Current Events” in the navigation bar. I still do remodeling and my latest remodel project is posted under the same “Current Events.” It is not always just about woodworking, but it is always about design ...

The Little Journey’s Bookstand was originally made by Roycroft to to hold a set of books...
In talking with some of my woodworking friends on this subject, I learned that most were not comfortable with kids being in their shops because of safety concerns. Granted, there are extra precautions that must be taken when kids are present, but don’t let this keep you from introducing woodworking to your kids, grandchildren, or even the kids up the street. And if you’re a parent or grandparent who doesn’t have a lot of knowledge around woodworking, but your kids have an ...
Just another thing I discovered this morning. Netflix sucks for woodworking videos. Smartflix (found via Make Magazine's website) many on a variety of topics. Turning, carving, cabinetry, you name it.
The Wood Whisperer has recently announced the first annual Woodworker's Safety Week: May 5 – May 9. He’d like to think of this week as “a refresher course on safety”. Many woodworking sites have decided to participate in this event and LumberJocks are joining with another cool challenge prepared in cooperation with Marc. And since Marc is the famous video star, this challenge is about your own videos again. Remember the success of our first LJ/TWW workshop video...
