Stools by Mark Morgan 1

What an incredible and inspirational video by Mark Morgan. Mr. Sentayehu Teshale is truly an inspiration not only to craftsman, but to what the human body and spirit is capable of when you allow your heart, and  passion to overcome your disabilities.

Sentayehu Teshale is a true craftsman.  Mulugeta Gebrekidan, one of the work shop students came up with the idea to film him at work. Sometimes you can see Sentayehu working in public around Addis Ababa.

Band Saw Clinic with Alex Snodgrass

I recently had the opportunity to meet Alex Snodgrass from Carter Products at one of the Woodworking Shows, and attended his band saw tune up clinic. I was amazed as to how he made it look so simple.  I currently own a Powermatic 14 inch band saw and found his tips and techniques to be some of the best. Of course, you can’t leave any woodworking show with out a few new woodworking toys. I purchased 2 of the Carter band saw blades one for general work, and one for re-sawing. I also replaced my stock fence with their trademark MAGFENCE. The fence is simple to use and it made re-sawing matched bookends a breeze.  If you’re at a woodworking show and Alex Snodgrass from Carter Products is there, take the time to visit their booth and check out his band saw tune up clinic and their great product line, you won’t be disappointed.

Until you can get to a show in person, enjoy this video with Alex Snodgrass from Carter Tools as he demonstrates how to adjust your Band Saw for optimal performance
