This is a woodworking blog devoted to the premise that woodworking doesn't have to be complicated. I specialize in a simple method of woodworking and woodworking plans that I call the glue, screw and cap method, which allows even a novice to build beautiful furniture in a reasonable amount of time. I specialize in carving with a hand held rotary tool, a simple and fun way to carve. Beautiful furniture, made simple.

How many clamps do you really need?
This is all the clamps you need.
Because this is all you need them for.
When you use the glue, screw and cap method, you don't need clamps. The glue will hold the pieces together and the screw will hold it until the glue dries. Together they are a great team. This allows you to build furniture in a fast and efficient manner. You can also buy laminated panels of wood so you don't even need a planer. All of my furniture on etsy and on Sawtooth Ideas is made using this method, it's simple, its strong, and it works. All you need is a few tools, this simple method, and your on your way to making beautiful furniture, made simple.
