Everyone knows Stickley and the Greene brothers, but do you know all these other Arts & Crafts makers (red dots)? -Dan
The search for design inspiration is a journey down many different roads, some of them fruitful and some dead-end. One of our goals within Popular Woodworking University’s online classes is to give students good maps for their searches.

What do you think is most important in organizing a shop? -Dan
Organizing a shop (and putting things back where they belong) is a great habit to develop. That starts with how you have your shop laid out.

+Christopher Schwarz talks about our debt to loggers and their dangerous work. -Dan
The first time I visited the hardwood forests of Pennsylvania I was handed a hardhat. At first I thought the loggers were just trying to get me to wear a stupid hat, but within about three minutes, I realized I was wrong. Logging is incredibly dangerous. And while I marveled at the beautiful forests and huge kilns during that visit, I was mostly astounded by how easy it is to …

Darrell Peart on Greene & Greene style plugs and how to make them. -Dan
Ebony plugs are essential to the Greene & Greene style. In fact, it would be almost inconceivable to design a Greene & Greene piece without them.

Regardless of personal preference, there are some basic hand tool storage principles that you should know. -Dan
If you ever write a book on workbenches or tool chests, be prepared for this question: “Off the record and just between you and me, what’s your favorite chest or bench?” The easy way out would be to give them a direct answer: a Dutch Roubo Nicholson with Japanese planing stops and Krenov-style tills. But that answer would be a lie. Many of the strong opinions and hard-and-fast rules in …
