Woodworking Guide for Beginner’s

Complete Woodworking Guide for Beginner’s With Step-by-Step Instructions (BONUS – 16,000 Woodworking Plans and Projects)

I found my way into fine woodworking shortly after graduating college, in 2003. I took a 2 week introduction to the fundamentals of fine woodworking at Boston’s North Bennet Street School. From there, I spent 3 years working at woodworking specialty retail stores, went to North Bennet full time for 2 more years, and set up shop as a custom furniture maker, which lasted for just over 7 years.

Woodworking, on many levels, is an ongoing process of reduction and refinement: Big trees into big boards, into smaller boards, into smaller pieces. Grinding cutting tools, and then honing, and polishing the edges. Rough shaping, scraping and filing of wood, followed by coarse sanding, and on into finer grits. And, the progression of learning the rough basics, and the ongoing refining what you know, and what you can do. The purpose of this book is to provide a coarse introduction to getting into the hobby. I assume that you’ll seek out other sources of information as the need arises.

Woodworking as a craft spans thousands of years, and I couldn’t hope to cover all that ground. Books have been published on the topic for centuries. Taunton Press started printing Fine Wood Working 40 years ago, and many other magazines have since come and gone, or showed up and stayed. And the internet, bless its tainted soul, has been ranting and raving at an exponential rate about just about anything for over 20 years. Information overload is a real risk, especially on the internet, and I can’t stress enough that it’s something to be careful of.

But in the end, any real learning that occurs will happen at the bench, as you feel for yourself how your tools are working. You’ll understand more as you see how the project comes together. You’ll get better at visualizing objects, and processes, in three dimensions, as you make the things with your own hands. The printed word can only convey so much, and it doesn’t hold a candle to what your own two hands will tell you.

Woodworking Basics – Mastering the Essentials of Craftsmanship – An Integrated Approach With Hand and Power tools

Based on a two-week course in woodworking fundamentals offered at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Camden, Maine, this book takes a traditional approach to teaching, with the idea that learning basic skills is essential to craftsmanship. In the process, the book covers all the bases–from working with hand tools to cutting dovetails. Includes two complete projects: a bench and a small cabinet.

Wedding at Matorca, Bucerías Nayarit in México

Martoca Beach Garden is a beautiful secluded beach and garden, surrounded by amazing large palm trees. It is a great venue for a non-resort private Puerto Vallarta beach wedding and a fantastic scenery for a photographer like me.

A lot of souvenirs were created that day: from Emanuel’s tears to his father’s ones, or the strong hugs that Cara shared with her new family, a lot of feelings were expressed. It is said that men should not cry, but how nice it is to see a man mourn for love in his statement. Seeing that every word transcends someone is not an easy thing to witness, and taking photos of those tears made me feel like I wanted to part aside and respect the emotion in a so intimate moment. But as a photographer, I had to shut down my emotions, let them get to me and have them get me closer to the core of the person I had to photograph.

The climate conditions were almost perfect as it usually is in November in Banderas Bay and we had the chance to have a cloudless evening that allowed me to play with the reflections on the pool during sunset. Another detail that will let me a special memory is Cara’s twin. It is not common to have a wedding with twins, and I must confess it is a lot of fun. It was a real pleasure to work for Cara & Emmanuel, an exceptional and very loving couple. Our best wishes at the start of their life together!

Bollywood wedding in Bangkok

The wedding has been such a fairy-tale from start to finish. It is the Indian wedding of the year to us. We couldn’t resist to tell you about this wedding at Anantara hotel in Bangkok. The vibrant of colors, the bond between their families during “Puja” ceremony, the fun and festive dances especially the first dance that the couple gets an inspiration from Gerua music video – the most famous love song in India. Every single moment are so precious, and we will remember for a long time. We started from the pre-wedding shot at Anantara hotel, and they used our pre-wedding photos as the background for the performance on the stage. The first dance was so impressive. The lighting, songs, and everything makes them as a Bollywood couple. The beautiful couple is so shining like the star.

Krina and Harsh are both Jainism. All foods are vegetarian, and we could take our chance to taste the food as well. Every menu are so incredibly delicious and made me feel interested in vegetarian recipes for my healthy and smart living. Krina’s mother choose the best thing for her lovely daughter. The live band Indian music in the wedding ceremony, wedding DJ during the groom procession, the banquet are all the best in Bangkok. It has been such a privilege to be a part of their remarkable wedding.
