I “grew up” woodworking with power tools since my background is in remodeling. Hand planes and other hand tools of the like are not where I come from, however, it does not mean that I cannot or do not like using them. One of my favori...

I am a self taught Designer~Craftsman. My business is "Todd A. Clippinger~American Craftsman."
I started doing home remodels in 1997 and I developed a penchant for working on period homes. I always had a need to repair or duplicate period trim, doors and built-ins. I discovered that not very many people could do this type of work, but I found that I enjoyed the challenge and I was good at it.
I eventually became introduced to the world of fine woodworking and made the cross-over. I became a juried artist in the 2007 Western Design Conference based on my craftsmanship and design. My projects include fitted and freestanding furniture and furnishings.
I am self-taught, I never had an apprenticeship or formal training. But my development was not without the help and advice of others. I feel a responsibility to share the knowledge with others as freely as it was shared with me, and the internet has provided a great opportunity to do this.
My motto is "Share the Love~Share the Knowledge." I believe that this is the spirit of a true American Craftsman. I try to fulfill this philosophy at my woodworking blog found at http://americancraftsmanworkshop.com.

Since I did the Dust Deputy Review in Episode 27, I have been getting questions and have decided to answer them publicly with a video so everyone may benefit from the answers. In this video I show how I reinforced the 5 gallon bucket lid that I...
In my last video I did a review of the Dust Deputy and showed how effective it is. This prompted several people to ask me about what size shop vacuum is necessary to work with the Dust Deputy. So in this video, I decided to explore that question ...
I posted this in the review section as well. But I felt the video offers a lot of context on how I use the Dust Deputy as a professional, what tools I use it with, and how I have it set up. This is a lot of good information to consider if you are ...
