Big commission piece coming my way

I do not do my woodworking to make money because as we all know 99% of the general public will not pay for quality handmade pieces. That being said, I have a few pieces in an art gallery here and a few in a gift shop. So I get a call from a...

Kreg system

Am I being a snob thinking that Kreg joinery is not proper joinery? To me it seems that it can not be as strong as the more traditional kinds like the mortise and tenon, to name just one.

I'm about to run into some teak (I think)

I think this is teak. I was told it was reclaimed decking from a pier in the south street seaport, demolished after hurricane sandy. Somehow we ended up with about 60 or 70 board feet more than we needed and I’m snagging it. It’s fairly straight...

A problem in Brazil

This is pretty bad news. There is a ton of Brazilian wood available in the UK and apparently in the US that is being strip mined and sold off illegally. I have no idea what a woodworker trying to be environmentally sensitive should do to help...

Sharpening

If you are using hand-tools and you aren’t sharpening, shame on you. I’ve been surviving with a $6 Norton oil stone from the hardware store but if you are like me and hadn’t been around anyone that took their tool care seriously, you might not...
