Catching up with Wood

by SteveInMarin on ‎06-19-2010 03:02 PM

Okay, so I totally suck at maintaining a blog at Wood Magazine. I've got my own blog that I try to keep updated and then post relevant info to Wood. Well let's see if I can catch up. Here is a bit about gluing and clamping:


Wood Working in verse

Guitar stand

A simple, portable, guitar stand.

I’ve been meaning to talk about shop safety for a while. Thanks to Wood Magazine's e-newsletter, I read about this case.  So in a nutshell, a guy mangled his fingers on a table saw, sued Ryobi, and was awarded $1.5 million.


This inspired me to talk a bit about shop safety. And I encourage everyone to read Mike Rowe's article: Safety Third.


Whittling a creative block (of wood)

by SteveInMarin on ‎03-13-2010 10:55 AM

I've been in a woodworking funk these past few weekends. Unable to really find an inspired project. So I decided to get a small chunk of wood and start whittling...something I haven't done since I was a kid. It's an invigorating exercise! So if you are at a loss for something to do, try whittling! It's asy and requires nothing more than a pocket knife and a block of pine.


If you have any ideas on how to get past a creative block, I'd love to hear them!
