Trying to Build Square With Crooked Hands

05-02-2019 03:56 AM by kckevin | 2 comments »

This is the first post from my blog, Crooked Hands Woodshop, from June 3rd, 2017. For some reason I forgot to share it here. I hope it is worthy of your attention. Where do you begin an ongoing story? Most times you would start at the beginning and I guess that’s as good as anyplace to start my story. My story starts as child of a blue collar family, in the heartland of America. A baby boomer, born to parents that had survived the Great Depression and World War II. Our greatest generation...

Relocated to Gibsonville NC

02-08-2019 10:11 PM by stazzz | 1 comment »

I’m back. We decided we were going to relocate to NC to be where the wood is. Well I finally had time to catch up and realized it has been some time since I was on here. So my projects are now on my own blog as well as my website and I have also been active in Pinterest. I will be checking in with quite a few projects scheduled for this year the big one I’m hoping for is a dedicated steel building. I moved from a 2 car to three car garage and 1/4 acre to over 10. Planning to retir...

Anyone use the Pomodoro Technique?

08-09-2018 08:03 PM by Out_In_The_Shop | 14 comments »

I find myself having a bit of a hard time staying focused some days and I’ve been looking into ways to be more productive with my (limited) shop time. On Instagram today April Wilkerson mentioned using the Pomodoro Technique and it piqued my interest big time, basically it’s working focused for 25 minutes and then taking a 5 minute break, after 4 of these 25 minute focused work sessions (each session is called a pomodoro) you take a longer 15-30 minute break. It seems to be exactl...

Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking #2: What i have learned about Video View numbers

04-05-2018 01:53 AM by rustednail | 2 comments »

One thing I have learned with the youtube channel thus far is that you never know which videos are going to get more views than others. I have made a few videos that I felt were going to do well and get lots of views, likes and comments but got almost nothing. On the other hand, one of the most watched videos I have on my channel is one that I recorded and edited quickly and without a lot of thought behind it. This video in particular didn’t have many views for the first week, but it seems to...

Benchtop Bench & Vise #1: Inspiration

01-12-2018 05:53 PM by EdsCustomWoodCrafts | 0 comments »

I very much need to upgrade my current clamping solutions in the shop as my Jay Bates inspired Moxon Vise just isn’t cutting it, I cant work on all face of the workpiece like you can on a traditional Woodworking Woodbench which currently isn’t in the budget. I just wanted to say before anyone comments about it, I couldnt afford to do the entire project in Maple or solid oak so I used construction grade lumber Kiln dried 2×4’s for part of the worksurface and bottom fr...

Getting Back to My Passion for Woodworking #1: My Younger Years

05-29-2017 03:43 AM by Duff | 1 comment »

Hi All, I’m not really sure why I’ve decided to start a blog because to be honest, I’m not as web savvy as I thought and am not really even sure I know what a blog is! Anyway, I grew up doing home improvement things with my Dad. I was always supposed to be just as good a worker at 12 years old as the 20ish guys that worked with him. He always said, “Duff, if you can’t give 100% don’t even start the job.” Hence, my never being satisfied with my work. T...

Shop Chips #1: Advice on Vises! (For beginners)

05-18-2017 05:46 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube so this’ll kind of be my “vlog within a blog” sort of thing. For this week I wanted to talk about something that the internet seems to complicate for alot of people and that’s vises. I cover it in the video but suffice to say that the best vise that you can possibly get is the one that has all the parts, the jaws move smoothly and freely, isn’t missing any parts, and most importantly fits in the space that you have alloted for work. In ...
