Confidence

2282 days ago by Eric | 8 comments »

Last month, I posted about my adventures in hand-cut veneer. I was pretty proud of myself for how well it turned out; I felt a bit like David fighting Goliath (Goliath being the giant hurdle of working without power tools) and cutting off his big fat head. I got several very positive comments both here and over on my personal blog. The comments made me feel like even though I am still brand new in the craft, that there are already some things I can do well. One comment in particular (from ...

WoodWriting Haiku Thursday's --by RusticWoodArt #19: "Articles of Expression With Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

2282 days ago by frank | 7 comments »

Articles of Expression With Wood ....cabin construction, construction allows ‘wood art’,i am mis-fit ‘tween…. While out working in the cabin the other day, I noticed that this one was following me from room to room, one of my shorter pieces here….as this one still fits into the head-room of the cabin. Hmmm….not like my head-room that I carry around all the time….never could figure where those articles of expression where supposed to fit into...

An Introduction of Wood Happenings So it’s that time again….and if you’ve spent any amount of time around here at LJ; last spring, summer and fall then you must know by now, some-what as to my occasional excursions into the forests and woods of New England.

The American Craftsman WorkShop #4: The Next Section

2356 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 17 comments »

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...

Ruminations on the hobby

2359 days ago by Rob McCune | 8 comments »

I was reading Teri’s Charlie Brown post and trying to think back on what influenced me towards wood working.

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...
