  • More Exciting Adventures Of A Dulcimer Builder
    The air conditioner in my shop died a few days ago. Aside from keeping the shop from feeling like a literal sweatshop the air conditioner also removes excessive humidity from the Summer air. Wood is hygroscopic and it is best to make dulcimers in a stable, humidity-controlled environment. The humidity level in my shop is kept at around 45% year round. A dulcimer built at around 45% humidity should remain stable when exposed to higher and lower humidity within reason.  Even so, ... read more

  • Some Thoughts on Real Woodworkers
    I’ve been struggling with something that’s troubled me for a few years now and that is the contrast between professional or what was once just full-time woodworkers and then perhaps amateurs. I see a similar comparison in other areas affecting woodworkers in the realms of teachers of woodwork craft, lecturer types too, if you will, and students; things like this. In my day it was man and boy thing, craftsman and apprentice, trainer and trainee. I still like the word journeyman because ... read more
