Feedback About Dilo's Unusually Small Workshop
Our illustrated article by Dilo Marcio Fernandino in the January issue of
generated far more reader response than any other article we've ever published.
Woodworkers from around the world identified with Dilo's small shop dilemma and lauded his craftsmanship. Even some woodworking forums picked up on
Dilo's incredible story.
Genesis of a Cabinet
By Dilo Marcio Fernandino
Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
A photo of a Rio-rosewood carved cabinet appeared with my article in the January 2009 issue of
That cabinet is intended to serve as the upper cabinet of a two-bodied
cabinet (like the American highboy). Guided by my own interpretation of traditional Dom Jose I style principles, I am working towards completion of
this assembly relying exclusively on hand tools and my usual carving methods (which replace the more popular mechanized woodworking operations).
Presently I am facing the sweet challenge of conceiving and building
the corresponding lower cabinet in which I am sure to encounter some new and difficult technical issues.

Going Pro as a Woodworker
Part 5 of a Series:
Finding Good Suppliers
By Douglas Bittinger
Smoky Mountain Woodworks
As a hobbyist woodworker, going to the local woodworking supply store and buying a board or two
and some supplies at retail as you need them is convenient, fairly affordable and sensible. But as you move into production work, you'll need to find
suppliers that can get you what you need in larger quantities and at better prices.
Thoughts on Finding Suppliers:
Why Not Write
Your Own Article
We actively solicit contributions
of editorial material (articles, photos and videos) from our customers and readership, and for every one we
accept and publish in
Wood News Online
, we will compensate the contributor. We typically pay up to
$100 (in the form of a store gift certificate) for a thousand-word article with photos. The amount of the gift
certificate may be prorated for shorter articles. Articles submitted may be edited by us at our discretion,
and compensation may vary depending on the published length.
The Wood Slicer:
Resawing is all about making thick boards thinner without planing off all the excess thickness (thus unnecessarily wasting your
valuable lumber). More than any other tool we know of, our exclusive Wood Slicer resawing blade makes resawing a pleasure.
Don't believe us? We invite you to
to fit your own bandsaw. After using it, if you're not
how well it performs, just return it to us within 60 days and we'll refund all your money, including domestic Priority Mail postage costs.
