I’m going to start this article off with one for the “CNC ain’t woodworking” crowd. Frank always does a great job at telling the story. This one features a very unique contrast of the organic flow of wood grain and some introduced shapes.

I’ve been on a Pantorouter kick in my shop lately. It’s an incredibly useful tool. And in showing it in content a lot of people have asked my thoughts on the WoodRat system. I have only seen it a few times online. Here’s a deeper look into another system with comparable results to the PantoRouter. It’s an interesting system for sure.

I have no clue who to give credit for this as I’ve seen it all over. However, I think this is an interesting concept for shop stairs :) Although, what’s the point of adding the folding feature to my shop stairs? I don’t think I would utilize the space freed up when in the folded state. Interesting none the less.
Great craftsmanship from a Korean wood working studio. Flawless wood, precise joinery, and a relaxing shop environment. I really like the simplicity of the shop tables too.

Another Korean (if I’m not mistaken) woodshop. A different presentation style from the one above though. One thing that I found really interesting was spraying half the joint with water while assembling. I’ve never seen that. It looks as if it’s done to help with glue squeeze out cleanup. I might have to experiment with that technique. An oak table where the simple design takes a back seat to the beautiful wood.

Hands down the best epoxy casting I’ve seen. This is such a neat idea and the end result is amazing. And I speak from experience here as Jake sent my wife and I the completed piece. As good as it looks in video it looks even better in person :) Thanks again man :)

In a world where GPS navigation is common place it’s fun to look back on how maps were made. I remember many road trips with my dad when I was young where I was the navigator in the passenger seat. The atlas was bigger than me but it was so much fun to figure out where we were and what route we needed to take. Good memories.. Here’s a look at map making.

I submit these as one of the greatest Christmas gifts of all time to be given out at a family get-together. I think I spent way too much time imagining the chaos that would unfold at our yearly dinner. So much fun…so much destruction..

While I hope I never have to use this potentially life saving information it is worth knowing. A good tip to start a fire with a battery and some items you may have nearby.
