Book Giveaway: The Woodworker’s Kitchen

Fri, 05/05/2017 - 5:32am
woodworking projects for the kitchen

For this week’s book giveaway I’ve chosen a fun book of kitchen themed woodworking projects: A.J. Hamler’s “The Woodworker’s Kitchen.” Think about it: Where do you spend the most of your time? Well – the shop probably. But, what about the rest of your time? Where do all of your guests end up when you entertain? Probably in the kitchen. Kitchens are the centers of activity in most homes. So […]

VIDEO: Elia Bizzarri and the Dull Chisels

Thu, 05/04/2017 - 6:41am

When I’m on the road filming video for Popular Wooding, it usually means an anonymous, but increasingly familiar hotel room, a search for good food and craft beer, and spending a few days our video host. I have begun to anticipate that I will learn more about our host than woodworking – in a good way! We had a great time shooting a Windsor Rocker build with Elia Bizzarri (his next video will […]

The BARN Workbench — Part One

Wed, 05/03/2017 - 9:20am

  I have a confession. I love workbenches. My first project as a hobbyist was a workbench and ever since, I’ve been in love with all the things a good bench can do to help you be a better woodworker.   Workbench 1.0 My first bench was Tom Caspar’s Build a Workbench in a Weekend that appeared in the October 1996 issue of the excellent, but long past Woodwork magazine. […]

Show Me Your French Tool Racks!

Mon, 05/01/2017 - 9:55am

I’m not looking for racks full of French tools, you understand – I want to see your pictures of tool racks inspired by Christopher Schwarz’s “I Can Do That” Tool Rack from the April 2011 issue (shown above – this link will take you to the article). It was based on a picture he saw in an engraving in a French book, and he likes it enough to still use […]

Video: Inside a Mortise with Frank Klausz

Frank Klausz

Woodworking is largely an exercise in subtraction. For much of what we do that subtraction is obvious – we can see the kerf left from a saw, we can watch the shavings fall out of our handplane and we brush shavings away from the work surface when we sand or scrape. In these instances, we can quickly assess how the process is going. Is my blade dull? Is my blade canted […]
