Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

06-18-2012 05:25 PM by Daris | 1 comment »

I love all things BIRD.  There, I said it.  I like birds, birdhouses, bird feeders, bird baths, bird stores, and most of all I enjoy making some of these things.  Surprisingly though, I’ve never bought a project book of just bird houses(although many of the books I have include some plans).  I picked up the book Easy to Build Birdhouses - A Natural Approach: Must Know Info to Attract and Keep the Birds You Want (Popular Woodworking) at Amazon for a really reasonable price.  I have thoro...

Handy Manual!

Handy Manual!

10-22-2012 10:39 AM by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

This review is from the October 2012 issue of our eMag. Missing Shop Manual - SHAPER is one of those handy little books to have in your shop. Small in size, it is filled with information and tips to care for a shaper. The book starts out with a little comparison to the router, is followed by information about all the components of the machine and accessories. There are safety tips, directions on how to set up the machine, “how to’s” for making simple cuts, and, from...

So I haven’t been able to get into my shop lately due to other projects going on. I was at the library yesterday and happened upon this book by Spike Carlesen. Admittedly I’ve only read through the first three sections, but I’ve enjoyed the conversational/q&a style writing as well as some of the ideas it’s given me. It is definitely geared for woodworking newbies, But would be good review or flip through for others

A novice review of Dennis Zongker's book on Wooden Boxes

A novice review of Dennis Zongker's book on Wooden Boxes

01-31-2014 06:14 PM by Craig Havran | 1 comment »

I cannot accurately call myself a woodworker. I’m in love with woodturning, but aspire to gain more knowledge in several other fields of woodworking. As I continue to improve as a turner, I feel that I am at a point in my turning where I can start to tackle making the high end chess sets that got me into this beautiful art in the first place. My problem was/is that even after I create a set, how do I present it to a perspective customer? I doubt they will share my acceptance of using a ...

Traditional Woodworking Tools

Traditional Woodworking Tools

03-16-2009 05:55 AM by Cam | 0 comments »

At a recent Wood Show I met a gentlemen by the name of Graham Blackburn, an Englishman that was the Hand Tool Rodeo expert giving presentations. I sat through all of his seminars and learned more in those hours that I ever had. I’ve gone after every book and web site I could get my hands on and all of those fall in the shadow of his book, Traditional Woodworking Hand Tools. This hardcover book is written like good books used to be, with thick rich pages and beautiful headings and tit...
