Hi - thanks for dropping by. My name is Keith Cruickshank and for as long as I can remember, I’ve been building or sculpting things with wood. I appreciate the beauty of wood and I like to design and create in wood. It turns out, I also have an interest in filmmaking. And then, add to that, the fact that I really like to meet interesting and talented people and presto — I thought, why not combine this all into one mashup of interests and so -- it turns out that -- now host a personal video blog (www.woodtreks.com), where I shoot, produce, and publish videos about wood art & craft - and the people who make it happen. I do this for fun. It’s my passion. My wife lets me travel and explore. And so there we go.
The Lumberjock community is one of the warmest and nicest place I've found on the Internet. Thanks to you all! Keith

Many of you probably cut dovetails with power tools & jigs —and so do I. But for some projects, I really prefer cutting them by hand and I never tire of learning how to do it better. That’s what took me on one of my recent video “t...
I just finished editing my most recent video—this one featuring Boston-based furniture maker John Fox. I was fortunate to be able to capture this unique, inside look at his wood selection process. (5 Minute Video) Video Link Here: Jo...
