  1. I am not sure if many main stream woodworkers are aware of a tool and finishing supplies retailer that goes by the name "Tools For Working Wood". I have shopped there on many occasions, I purchased my lovely and robust Ray Iles mortising chisels, some finishing supplies, marking gauge and a few other items that they specialize in including environmentally and baby safe finishes. An area of their retail website is dedicated to blogs, there are various blogs for different departments, one blog I especially like and it's updated very frequently, weekly if not more, is a blog called Joel's Blog. Joel loves writing about woodworking history, the people, the tools, the furniture and more. Here is one particular entry that I found interesting, "Things to Sit On in Randle Holme's The Academy of Armory, York, England, 1688". Since I love chairs, and building them, this interested me on a personal level. Things to Sit On in Randle Holme's The Academy of Armory, York, England, 1688 TOOLSFORWORKINGWOOD.COM I've been working on a blog about chairs. As part of my research, I took a closer look at Randle Holmes's 1688 opus, The book is considered the best When you go to Joel's Blog the page kind of looks unorganized, these folks are woodworkers, not website developers, and it appears they created and maintain their own retail website, and I really like the simplicity of the site myself, easy to navigate and easy to find the items you want. They started out as a Museum of woodworking tools, and developed into a retailer. Their brick and mortar location is at: 112 26th St, Brooklyn, NY 11232 They also have classes and special guest stars drop by to host the classes such as Roy Underhill. Here is their original website when they were a tiny museum and just kicking off their website in the early 2000's. Museum of Woodworking Tools - Lobby ANTIQUETOOLS.COM I hope you have fun with it and don't forget to poke around their retail offerings.
  2. John Morris wrote an excellent bio on Easy wood carbide turning tools. I was surprised to find out they invented them. Its a good read. II hope I found the proper link for his story.
  3. Pearl Harbor is a U.S. naval base near Honolulu, Hawaii, that was the scene of a devastating surprise attack by Japanese forces on December 7, 1941. Just before 8 a.m. on that Sunday morning, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes descended on the base, where they managed to destroy or damage nearly 20 American naval vessels, including eight battleships, and over 300 airplanes. More than 2,400 Americans died in the attack, including civilians, and another 1,000 people were wounded. The day after the assault, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan. source https://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/pearl-harbor
  4. Jacob Hubler, an immigrant from Switzerland, purchased his first tract of land in what is now Bushkill Township in 1743 and over the next decades he would continue to accumulate tracts of land that he would later call Jacobsburg. Hubler became a naturalized subject of the British Crown in 1763, and during the American Revolution he served on Northampton County’s Committee of Observation. Sometime before 1785, Hubler built the Jacobsburg Inn, which served as a store, tavern, and residence. By the time he died in 1789, Hubler’s holdings amounted to about 432 acres. Read more...
  5. A Guild of Contemporary Horn Workers and Collectors In 1996, Roland Cadle of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, who had long been interested in the historic 18th Century horn trade, conceived the idea of hosting a “Horn Fair” at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA. The horn fair consisted of a series of seminars and exhibits on the subjects of collecting and making objects from cow horn. It was such a positive experience for those who attended that eleven workers and collectors met afterwards to form a new organization called the Honourable Company of Horners (HCH). The founding members decided that the purpose of the organization would be to promote and preserve the knowledge of horn working. Officers were elected and the members decided to meet each year to hold seminars and conduct business in order to fulfill the mission of the organization. Source: About Us
  6. MUZZLELOADER’s focus on early American and frontier history, and the reenactment thereof, led to the publication of The Book of Buckskinning in 1981. As of 2012 we have produced eight books in the Buckskinning series, as well as many other books on Colonial arms, Colonial and frontier clothing, gunsmithing and history. Source: Muzzle Loader

  8. I'd like to ask, if anyone can come up with the oldest known woodworker in our earths history. This woodworker needs a name, it cannot be a segment of a society, nor an era of our worlds history such as any of the Big Era's and it cannot be a people in a region such as "The Egyptians". I am looking for a name, it can be in literature of fiction as well, drama, poetry, and of course non-fiction. You can use any venue of research you like, google and such. Yes this is a challenge! No prize at the end, just fun debate.
  9. The Encyclopedia Britannica (Latin for "British Encyclopaedia"), formerly published by Encyclopedia Britannica, Inc., is a general knowledge English-language encyclopedia. It was written by about 100 full-time editors and more than 4,000 contributors. The 2010 version of the 15th edition, which spans 32 volumes and 32,640 pages, was the last printed edition.
  10. This is a wonderful historical data base full of great information about woodworking in America.
  11. Apparently, General Henry Knox was a bit "rotound", and in the lead up to the Crossing of the Delaware....Col. Glover "insulted" Gen. Knox... "In an Army that hasn't had a good meal in three months, it should be considered Treasonous for the General to fat.." "And, yes, General Knox, I am an uncouth, and profane man....however, you see that Private sitting over there, outside his tent? Cold enough to freeze his balls off, and the man is shaving! Now THERE is a "civilized man" for you" Any other good quotes and sayings out there? There was a story, about General G. S. Patton, standing on the bank of the Rhine river.....taking a leak. When he turned away, he had forgotten to close the "door"......Someone wanted to get a picture of the General.....( Bill Maudlin???)
