I need to know about: cutting and finishing wood, basic woodworking terminology and concepts, working with small amounts of material to make small jobs.
Where do you come from and when were you born?
I’ve grown up in California, and graduated college at age 20. I grew up with my mom and dad and my mom is a professional woodworker of some renown in her life. When I went to school, I majored in art and applied for woodworking scholarships and did well enough. Eventually I graduated and went on to pursue a career in business, and I still get it.
What books have influenced your woodworking?
My father’s books (which are called “The Craft of Making Things,” in honor of the work he did and the techniques he teaches) is an immense influence in how I work in a lot of ways.
What is the most important way you teach that you don’t usually teach in school?
I’m always doing things by the book. I never say, “You know this is the way you want to do this,” so it never becomes a teaching tool. I always use the right materials and get it right.
“The future belongs to those who fight for the things we love.”
We love it so much. We’ve all tried to find what it is that makes the internet awesome, and have probably come across thousands of pages with countless ideas and tricks (even if they are not true ones). If anything, I think the internet is an extension of ourselves. Even if it is a workable and effective system, its just too much of a human enterprise. We want to know this stuff, and we want to keep it from being compromised or lost. When we see people trying to put their “best” work into the public domain, we are often surprised and angry and want nothing more to do with them. But in an almost poetic way, we often try to connect them with what they have worked so hard to put together and build — sometimes by linking to their blog posts or even just sharing their work online with us. It feels odd to say, but we want the whole world to be able to participate in that process. How else than through sharing?
So far this year, I’ve shared a lot of stuff around the blog.
I have a lot of blogs. Here are the ones you might enjoy.
One blog I’m currently considering expanding into:
