The American Woodshop with Scott Phillips begins it’s 18th season on PBS starting on Monday, August 29th, 2011. This year’s 13 episodes entitled “Weekenders,” focus on woodworking projects to augment the home. While discovering and using new tools to become a more proficient woodworker, you should be able to finish each of these projects in one weekend.
I found a different aspect of carving while at the New England Home Show. Rich Borden’s Handcarved Root Baskets displayed a unique attraction and different idea for the use of a different part of the tree. Rich uses cypress tree stumps and roots to create these one piece beauties.
We live in a 3-D world, so our wood projects need to share the same idea. Bending wood is not a new concept, but Earlex makes it easier for you to attain the shapes in your wood projects that you desire. To help assist you with perfect flowing designs is the new Earlex Steam Generator. The electric unit is compact, light weight, has thermal protection, and even includes instructions on how you can build your own steam box! Great for any projects like boating, furniture, instruments, and is only limited to what your imagination can come up with!
This is our Valentine’s story about two special young people who enjoy the art of woodworking together. Kevin and Lauren met in 2011, and were engaged at Disneyland on January 6th, 2014. He is a woodworker, and she is not your traditional “bling-type” bride!
