Woodwork joints

520 days ago by Mikesawdust | 7 comments »

An excellent source and reference for hand joinery and it’s original uses. The book is public domain, so it’s free and although it is written in older style English and the descriptions and instructions are very brief, if you are into hand joinery or just looking for a joint that really stands out as unique, this is a really good book to use.

A fun way way to introduce both young and old to the craft.

A fun way way to introduce both young and old to the craft.

531 days ago by Ben | 8 comments »

I got my copy of Grandpa’s Workshop by Maurice Pommier in the mail a week or two ago and I immediately sat down to check it out. Every book I’ve gotten from Lost Art Press has been of the highest quality and this book was no exception. First the cover. The images are bright and inviting while still being robust. The pages are nice and thick with excellent printing. Each image is not only fun to look at but informative. I could spend hours just staring at the pictures of tools. The...

Handy Manual!

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...

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

564 days ago by Tom Godfrey | 13 comments »

Want to review a book that I just purchased a few days ago. It’s called “Artisans & Money”, written by Joe Rollins. Some of you may remember me posting a review of his lathe cutting tools and as of today I have had 1146 views with 7 comments. Not sure if any of you ordered any of these tools but if you are starting out in wood turning or even if you have been turning for years I still feel this is one of the best investments you can make. Why? Great product at a lower price than other see...

Review of "How to Make Wooden Farm Toys" By Kurtis Foote

Review of "How to Make Wooden Farm Toys" By Kurtis Foote

566 days ago by grace123 | 2 comments »

I used the plans created by Kurtis Foote to make the combine. The plans are very simple to use. The diagrams are accurate. The instructions are clear. I had no trouble making the combine with two different heads. One is a bean cutter head and the other is a corn chopper head. I highly recommend these plans for anyone desiring to make a set of our farm toys. The skid loader, tractor and disc attachment are realistic

his book review is from the September 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Woodcarver's Workbook At first glance I felt that the book had too much information, too much script and no colour photos which left me feeling “ho hum”... BUT on second look I realized that this book is an excellent resource for learning how to see and how to copy what you see when doing a wood carving. As yo...

Kuritis Foote asked for volunteers to review his book “How to Make Wooden Farm Toys”. The book has plans for four distinct wooden Farm Toys. Project 1 is a Combine with a corn head and a rolling reel head, project 2 is a Skid Steer Loader, project 3 is a Tractor and project 4 is a disk attachment. I received my copy yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to read it. The book is very nicely bound and printed on very good quality paper. Kurtis has done a great job with his approach to the book. It is w...

This book review is from the July 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Woodcarving Magic by Bjarne Jespersen This book has me scratching my head. Woodcarving Magic – while I think all woodworking projects are magical in themselves, this book focuses on creating those items that have free floating pieces inside of other pieces. There are the interlocking chains, of course, but what about a dode...
