This past summer, I had the opportunity to visit the shop of a fellow woodworker by the name of Arlin Eastman. (That’s Arlin sitting at his lathe in the photo below.) I first “met” Arlin several years ago on WoodNet (Woodsmith’s online woodworking forum). At that time, he was just getting into woodworking (specifically, woodturning) and was looking for advice on how to get started and what tools to buy. But what makes Arlin’s story unique is the way in which he became involved in woodworking. Arlin was serving in the military and deployed in Iraq when he was wounded in 2008. His injuries left him with physical disabilities as well as brain trauma and short-term memory loss. When he returned home, he suffered from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). His doctor suggested…

reader feedback

Yes on the CNC Router I have to take exception to Ray Weimer’s comment in issue No. 244. Your article on the CNC router was one of the best I have ever seen in your magazine. I have almost completed the build and will send photos when done. Maybe I am alone here, but I found the CNC article created an awful lot more enthusiasm in my shop then another cutting board or cute box. It’s nice to see a balance of easy weekend projects along with others that take a couple of months to build. Bruce Macdonald Dunrobin, Ontario Contrary to another reader’s comment in the feedback section of Woodsmith No. 244, I was thrilled when I saw the CNC project in your magazine. In fact I am about two-thirds of the way…

Shop-Made Toggle Clamp I often enjoy building my own shop-made items. When I needed a couple of toggle clamps for a project, I knew that I wanted to design and build my own. WOOD CONSTRUCTION. As you can see in the photo, the toggle clamp I came up with uses almost all hardwood parts. They’re small, but easy to cut out at the band saw. I used aluminum rods for all of the pivot points, and a bolt with a couple of nuts for the finger. Using the toggle clamp is easy. It works exactly like a commercial toggle clamp. The top lever releases the arm and lifts it up. When you slide a workpiece in, you can pull the lever to latch it in place. To accommodate different thicknesses of workpieces, you…

quick tips

Disposable Epoxy Mixer. When Crayola England of Des Moines, IA had some epoxy to mix up, she decided to get a little creative. She used a section from an old set of mini blinds. The plastic strip is sturdy enough to mix the epoxy and is the perfect spreader. Resaw Push Stick. Scott Kirk of Solon, IA often uses his band saw to resaw stock. When resawing thin stock, James likes to use a thin push stick. By attaching a magnet to the end, James can hang the push stick from his band saw cover so it’s readily available when he needs it. Chalk Remover. Dan Martin of Galena, OH found that white chalk can be difficult to remove from open grain woods like walnut or oak. To easily remove the chalk,…
