Welcome to TheWoodShepherd.com!
Welcome to my web home of The
Way of the Galoot Blog and Podcast, the web's ONLY totally Galoot
My name is Mack McKinney. I am a woodworker with over 35 years experience in woodworking craftsmanship, carrying on a family tradition
of making beautiful and useful items of out wood! I remain dedicated to
traditional woodworking and woodworking techniques!
I have a blog. Okay, truth is I have a couple of
blogs. I'm finding self-expression in the "Blogosphere" very exciting, and
it helps me stay "tuned in" to trends in woodworking. My hope is that you
find them entertaining, scintillating, stimulating, and perhaps
educational. For the woodworker, this is a cool place to be!
"The Way of the Galoot" podcast can be found on the blog
by the same name, here.
This 20 minute podcast is jammed full of useful information for the woodworker
who enjoys using power tools, but is becoming a lot more interested in the "old
ways" of hand tool woodworking. Topics include the various tools found in
a joiner's tool chest, workbenches, the tool chest itself, as well as some
interesting historical and biographical information. Catch the latest episode here!
These pages are loaded for the woodworker seeking to
increase his skills and knowledge! Check back often as we grow!
