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 ...

Who among you has worked with boy scouts on the Woodworking Merit Badge?I’m looking for advice, counsel and how-to as my woodworking neighbor and I work with a small group of younger boy scouts to help them earn the merit badge. These boys will be 11 years old to 15 years old.I’m most interested in these things:—How did/do you organize the merit badge work, all in a single session of X hours OR in two or more sessions?—How do you determine which tools and which project...
Catch upThis is a project I started from quartersawn white oak scraps about three years ago. However, I got involved in other things, so it has been bouncing around in storage getting slightly damaged during the interim. I took it out to inspect it and start the finishing process; aka actually completing the piece.This is from “More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” by Robert Lange. The Little Journey’s Bookstand was originally made by Roycroft to to hold a set of books...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...
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
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...
