Wondering how to make this Leap Day special? I have the answer ;) Go to your workshop, pick one of your tools, snap 1-3 photos of that tool and post your personal review to extend our growing collection of the real reviews by real woodworkers. And what makes it special, you ask? As you know, Leap Year Day is February 29th and is added to the calendar every four years (with few exceptions). So here’s the deal – out of all Leap Day review posters we will have 4 random winners ...

One Section Finished I finished this section of wall the other day and the trim. After that I pushed all the shop “furniture” back against the wall. This opened up the center of the shop again so that I could clear the next section of wall to be finished. I can’t always work corner to corner because I waited until I put too much crap in the shop to finish the walls. I did, however, already have 3 walls finished as you can see in my workshop posting. Now that I...
I was reading Teri’s Charlie Brown post and trying to think back on what influenced me towards wood working. I have come to realize that the decision to woodwork really came from no outside influences. My dad never woodworked. The only thing I can think of him working on was a model train table. I can’t remember my step dad doing anything in wood besides maybe a ramshackle doghouse. I really don’t know why I was drawn to wood. I always enjoyed “This Old HouseR...
Over the past several years I have been needing and wanting to buy or maybe just make a workbench. I have gone to five woodworking shows in three states over the past two years. At these shows and in several magazines or catalogs I have noticed many of these really nice woodworking benches that are way far out of my reach as far as the $$$ involved. Finally after a elongated sick spell lasting nearly two months I finally get few boards together, screws, a very few nails and other items tha...
January has been an entertaining and inspiring month, as the entries for our two Awards categories came in. I am very pleased to see the excellent response – with 50 boxes and 34 2×4 projects. Also, the challenges that we host throughout the year are intended to provide woodworkers the opportunity to expand their own skills. I think you have outdone yourselves. Very impressive work. You are all winners already. Congratulations. And now, an exciting week is ahead of us as we meet...
Its been a long time sense I have been on. Not because of anything anyone here has done. You see, I lost my brother not long back. He had a huge heart attack that took him home to be with God. Its been really hard to deal with as everything I have ever learned about wood working and fixing cars and stuff I learned from Kevin. He taught me the basics of all this stuff. Every time I pick up a tool, my thoughts go to him. Kevin always said that day he died he wanted to be buried in a pine box...
