Tom around the web

My work and process have been mentioned in several places on the web.

Greener Lumber, LLC has a nice gallery page of Tom’s work using their old-growth, Belize river-salvaged Mahogany, as well as some very kind words on my craft and style.

At Popular Woodworking’s 2011 Woodworking In America, my Bubinga Sideboard won the JPEG Wars competition. A Veritas Small Bevel-Up Smoothing Plane was awarded in recognition. A big shout out to the Modern Woodworkers Association cheering section for their talents and abundant enthusiasm.

In 2013, Chris Schwarz’s Lost Art Press blog featured our Grandpa’s Workshop I Madonnari rendering. The original was from a stunningly illustrated children’s (of all ages) book that LAP translated from the original French.

One of my favorite sources of woodworking information and inspiration is Marc Spagnuolo’s The WoodWhisperer web site. Marc has posted a number of my works including the Bubinga Sideboard; a Wine Cabinet of Mahogany and Hickory; my old-growth, river-salvaged Mahogany Stool with drawers; our 2010 I Madonnari street painting tribute to James Krenov and a visit to Tom’s Santa Barbara Driveway Workshop.

In the fall of 2014, Marc’s Woodwhisperer Guild (subscription-based) will produce his awesome, high quality video and support for a build based on Tom’s Krenov Inspired Display Stand. This version was created with Mahogany and Hickory (Pecan). That design offers many opportunities for customization. It will be interesting to see Marc’s take on the design, as well as the other Guild members’ work as they post images of their own personal interpretation.
