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.
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!
Woodcraft has added a brand-new safety accessory for the table saw, made by the Canadian-based JessEm® Tool Company, to its line of products. Clear-Cut TS™ Precision Stock Guides for Table Saws are the ultimate hold-down on the table saw. Multiple featherboards are required to simultaneously hold down and guide material accurately against a table saw fence.
The Easy Wood Tools & Woodcraft judges have conferred and the Super “Wood” Bowl Winners results are in! After 20 entries, we had many people try to enter after the deadline because they forgot! So remember us when you think about next year’s Super Bowl. Start turning now and mark your calendars!
One thing about Duck Dynasty, A&E’s reality television series on the lives of the Robertson family, who became wealthy from their family-operated duck call business, is that you never really see much about the duck calls. Most of their duck calls are molded plastic and others on the market are CNC machined. So Woodcraft set out on another Woodworking Adventure and found a not so rich and famous woodworker who has a duck call business called Final Descent Duck Calls in Valparaiso, Indiana.
You’ll want to start building or improving your shop, starting with this Rust-Oleum based nonslip, epoxy paint and sealed floor. Great for resurfacing a concrete floor, this project will allow for easy clean-up leaving a show room finish. But don’t keep it clean, fill it with sawdust made from your handiwork and enjoy it! Create a two-wall workshop and outfit it with four outstanding shop projects using the Cut Lists and Convenience-Plus Buying Guides, all in the August/September Issue #54 of Woodcraft Magazine. We’ve never packed this much information all in one publication, so this issue is a must have!
If my kitchen were to be radiocarbon dated, it would fall somewhere between the fall of Rome and the discovery of electricity. My house, built in 1920, originally didn’t have much in the way of kitchen cabinets. One tall cabinet, secured opposite where the original stove would have been, was all the home’s Roaring 20′s inhabitants required. Sometime between the birth of rock-n-roll and the summer of free love, the home’s occupants decided they were going to need some place to store their Correlle and Tupperware. A decision was made to renovate the kitchen.
