Am I a Woodworker

Am I a Woodworker?
By Jason Hicban

Jason has never considered himself a woodworker, but when his wife wanted a high-end table from a retail store, he told her "I can make that for you, instead of spending 4K on one table." This is the story of how he did just that for his first ever woodworking project, but he still asks himself the question "Am I a woodworker?"

Mortise and Tenon Magazine

Book Review:
Mortise & Tenon Magazine, Issue 7

As always, beautifully photographed and laid out, this issue of Mortise & Tenon Magazine is a feast for the eyes and a worthy collector's item. Certainly, green woodworkers and hand tool enthusiasts will greatly appreciate the attention to their ways of working. But the volume is much more than that, and those interested in the history of woodworking and issues of design will also find much of value.

Ship Wheel Project

Building a Ship Wheel
By Jeff Streba

Last summer, Jeff's 17 year old boy answered an ad to help build a sail boat in order to sail around the world doing research and humanitarian work. They called it the Argo and it is a 48 foot Ketch. The owner, Douglas, had plenty of experience building boats but needed someone to help build the wheel to attach to the pedestal, which was the perfect opportunity for Jeff to show off his woodworking skills.
