I wrote this on blogger yesterday. Ya’ll can probably guess the magazine, but I reckon they all do this now. Doesn’t make it right.

The Craftsman's Path #17: Gene Landon lecture

11-26-2007 11:36 PM by Mark Mazzo | 4 comments »

I had the opportunity to hear a talk given by Gene Landon recently. If you don’t know Gene, he has been featured in Fine Woodworking numerous times (that’s him in his shop pictured below) and he specializes in period furniture reproductions from his shop in Pennsylvania – for the most part all done with traditional hand tool methods. Gene gave a good talk about the his home and shop and the furniture he has done over the years. His capabilities and work were inspiration...

New toys from Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo

11-14-2007 05:55 PM by Nils | 4 comments »

On Saturday I went to the Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo, California. I dragged along a friend who’s done some woodworking (he’s taking a class at the Palo Alto Adult Ed, which apparently has an awesome shop) but who didn’t want to buy anything. I made up for this by spending my entire budget. I had a list of things I “needed” – and I kept pretty close to the list, although my dollar didn’t stretch as far as I’d hoped it would. Anyway, here’...

A Clean Shop #1: A New Shop Cabinet

11-12-2007 11:25 PM by Tim Dorcas | 0 comments »

The last two months or so, the shop has been a mess. Partly this is due to not having a place to put all of my lumber but the bigger part is I have had no place to put the larger equipment. Recently in one of the woodworking magazines they built a shop cabinet that housed the same type equipment I was trying to organize. They built it with spruce and peg board. I had some left over melamine (melamine that just happened to match all of the other cabinets in the shop) so I went to work with a d...

Tall Tales .... I'll start the list

11-11-2007 04:50 AM by Dan'um Style | 30 comments »

Thought this might be fun. In a trimmed down Peco’s-Bill-style everyone has story or two to tell. I’ll start the list. #1 In the summer after my eightth grade, my family moved out of town to a small farm 5 miles outside of Ames, Iowa. Cornfield country. My father was a bricklayer, but he could make about anything. Borrowing one of his wood chisels, I started tossing it around like it was a magicians throwing knife. I learned to stick-it into almost anything. Tree. ...

WARNING! Reading this blog and watching the included video will take 8-10 minutes of your life that you will never get back!

The Craftsman's Path #12: The joy of a well tuned hand plane

10-17-2007 05:50 PM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

I spent some time in the shop this past weekend working on a couple of final tasks for a new table before starting on the finishing. I had a choice on how to do the work and opted for a simple block plane. If you’ve done work with well-tuned hand tools, then you know how my experience was…either way, you can read about it here.
