Episode #84 - A Spiritual Gift

My conversations with Todd Clippinger are always interesting and stimulating. This one is no exception! As we approach the holiday season and reflect on the many things that bring joy to our lives, I am thinking of the many fellow woodworkers that I have had the pleasure to interact with over this past year. Via the magic of the internet, I have found inspiration and support for my own development as a woodworker. It is hard to not think of these guys when I'm working in the shop . . . you almost feel they are peering over your shoulder ready to offer advice if needed!

Todd Clippinger, American Craftsman, is not only a very talented furniture builder and designer, he is also has a passion for sharing his woodworking skill and knowledge. As a frequent contributor to, he has supported and encouraged a number of woodworkers that share his passion for excellence in woodworking. is truly a unique community where woodworkers of every skill level can gather and share the pleasures of woodworking from the pride of posting the newest project to sharing a skill or technique and the thrill of teaching and mentoring.

Todd is contagious with his enthusiasm. No doubt fellow Lumberjocks Mike Shea, Blake Weber, The Timber Kid, and Allan will get a thrill when they get a special shout out in this video conversation with Todd Clippinger.

So, the real question remains. Will Shea Planes be featured at the 2009 Popular woodworking Woodworking in America Conference? Stay tuned . . . !

Thank you for the kind words and pointing out that being a Rough Cutter is more than just talking about woodworking. As Tchisel likes to say, you need to push yourself and get out of your comfort zone and try different and new techniques. The other important messages that sums up Tommy and most of the other Rough Cutters are always help other woodworkers when ever possible, and to always strive to be the best woodworker and person you can be.
