I believe I first found John's channel on YouTube while looking for videos about clamps. At the time he had just made a pretty decent bar clamp and a superb hand screw clamp. His projects aren’t so much furniture as jigs, shop made tools and clever experiments involving woodworking and some metalwork. I like John’s no nonsense attitude to the grief he’s received from the YouTube trolls. He’s a fountain of information on thinking a process through and doing things i...
So i’ve been doing a lot of sitting on my tuckus and i’ve got the wild hair of an idea that since i’m now in a wheelchair and I am a diehard woodworker than why not try to help out the rest of the randoms out there that are in a similar situation? Problem with this is that I have no video editing, or making experience at all. I’m thinking about just starting with a basic introduction video introducing myself and outlining a few things that i’ll be doing in my vid...

I retired from the UK Police in 2006 after 30 years, and I think I only survived that period of time, because of my love of woodwork, I class myself as a late starter, I used to tinker with bits and pieces, but it wasn’t until I was 21 and my first Father-in-law who was a Chippy, gave me lessons and a few tools, that I decided that woodwork was definitely the hobby for me. In July 2006 I left the Police, and immediately moved to Spain, where I had had property for a number of years, ...
The following is a video about an Ethiopian dude who makes stools. Both his arms are “paralyzed”. Thought some woodworkers might find it interesting. Not trying to use it to make some kind of statement. Its just neat. YouTube link:Carpenter without hands I have no connection to the man or the film. A random find.

Well, since I’m doing all this online marketing stuff to promote my business(es), I might as well talk about it every chance I get. In addition to woodworking and home repairs, I’m also a bit of an artist. I learned portraiture through my Mom when I was growing up, and have picked it up again recently. Here's some of my work: What’s this all got to do with woodworking? Frames, of course! Also, paper is made out of wood. But I’ll just stick to the frames ;...
My recent battle with the cheap electric chainsaw, and subsequent redesign of my 36” crosscut saw’s handle have seen several people recommending I rive my huge logs with a simple wedge and sledgehammer system. I’d seen it done before, but had always thought the splits were messy – not an issue if I’m just making some turning blanks. I also feared that such shock-treatment of the logs would lead to microcracks and extra checking later. I’m probably just bein...
Anyone know Japanese? These are from YouTube user kinohaguruma, and they’re a young child’s dream come true. These are the kinds of things I always wanted to build out of wood growing up, and still do, but I also recognize the monumental effort required now. I chose 3 of them for the post here, each getting more complex and awesome, but there are more at the link above.
