Option 1: A Subject Matter Expert (SME) who studying/teaching the subject for several years and often assumes while explaining that the basics are covered or looks it from their frame of reference. Or Option 2: Someone who also started from scratch as you have and passed the exam just last week. He/She knows the exact process, challenges, doubts, and roadblocks you may be facing and can think from your perspective. If your option is 2, you are in the right place.

Do you believe in the saying, “The best person to guide you is the one few steps ahead of you!”? While doing my Engineering, I realized this fact that just before the exam if you require minimal, to the point, useful and applicable information to pass the examination, your friend/colleague who has gone through the subject and appeared for the exam just last week is the best Go to Person. That person may not be the SME (Subject Matter Expert) like the professors teaching for years but is the best bet to solve your immediate problem. So are you a beginner in Pyrography or Wood Burning & looking for a friend and colleague for informal guidance? Your search for that colleague ends here. I sincerely want to take you through that first step and prepare you for your first Pyrography Project! Why Pyrography? Of all the crafts I have practiced, Pyrography is the most value for money. It gives me immense satisfaction and serves the purpose for which I practice the art on the weekends. (i.e., to unwind from my regular job) The best part is this art has got something for everyone. If you are a beginner, get a scrap wood and use your existing soldering pen to start the artwork. Later, you can shift to a proper burner. If you like calligraphy, you can burn letters. A friend of mine is a space enthusiast, and he is making space ships! With experience, you master the art of shading, which gives depth to the artwork. Drawing hair, fur, or skin of an animal takes time, but it is worthwhile to put the effort. What I love about this skill is that it makes one of the best presents for the loved ones. As the art ages with time, it leaves a memorable piece of history to your loved ones. About the Book It is not a traditional book but an effort from your friend to present the experience and discussions while learning this art in the last few years. I have made many wood and leather burning projects over the years and interacted with fellow crafters. This book is the crux of all those learning and experiences over the years. This book provides a minimalistic approach to the information required to start your first Pyrography project. It covers: - Introduction to the art: The history and steps involved - Tools: All about tools involved: Detailed instructions on using Wood Burner including different tips - Designing, Tracing, and Shading: I must say the shading part only comes by practicing! - Coloring, Polishing, and Finishing - Safety Instructions: Very important and highlighted all through the book - Step by Step instructions on 10 starter projects with pictures - Frequently Asked Questions (All the ones I could remember and not covered in other chapters) - Sample Designs: Mandala, Tiger, Dragon, and more. I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips which helped me. This book is for people who are in their first lap of Pyrography journey and want to have a holistic idea of processes, tools, and need help in their initial projects. I have included photographs of realistic projects of beginners explaining the process and standard operating procedure while starting. So, what are you waiting for?

"Whittling for me is more than just an art. It is like meditation and rather therapeutical. Every single time you create something, it brings you the delight and also the happiness that meets your mind and soul". This is the reply I got from an old practitioner when I asked him how do you interpret Whittling. Then I realized the core idea behind this craft. It comes with no deadline, no pre-written script, no rules, and just pure expression of your emotions through a knife and a piece of wood. In the present times, when all the self-help gurus are talking about Digital Detox, Whittling comes as a strong contender to pass on to the young and the old alike. My Journey in Whittling My wife introduced me to the world of Whittling 5 years ago. As I was already into Leather craft and Pyrography, I got the basics quickly. But reaching the intermediate level in any art requires practice and patience. It has been an incredible journey for the last few years, working alongside her on various Whittling projects. About the Book This book is like a friend sharing his experiences and taking you from point A to B in your Whittling journey. The examples and references are real and taken out of the conversations with various experienced Whittlers. The book covers: Introduction: History of Whittling, how it started, and became part of popular culture. Wood: All about the type of wood, grains, and tips for starting. Tools: All about pocket and carving knives Techniques: All type of cuts Safety: Gloves, Thumb pads, duct tape, and other innovative options. Starter projects with photos and step by step instructions Frequently asked questions: 22 beginner questions as answered by experts: Multiple solutions to a single problem List of online resources for patterns I have included realistic photographs, discussions, tips, FAQs, which I have received along the way of my journey in Whittling over the years. Still on the fence? Okay, let me explain to you the difference between Wood Carving and Whittling? Whittling is like an unplanned vacation (go with the flow), and Wood Craving is like planning a vacation through a tour operator! And lastly my favorite analogy: When I was struggling to understand the concept of wood grain initially, one old-time whittler told me, "Think of the grain-like petting a cat. When you pet it head to tail, the fur all lies down, and the cat purrs. If you try to go from tail to head, it spikes up, and the cat gets very angry. Keep the cat happy."

Cabinet Making for Beginners Handbook

"A kitchen without a cabinet is like a body without a soul." This is what a wise cabinetmaker uttered when I asked what cabinet making meant to him. I have been practicing all the aspects of woodworking like Joinery, Woodturning, and Furniture making along with Cabinet Making, and I must say this art provides the maximum chance of impacting the overall look of your kitchen or bathroom and eventually, your home. Cabinets, for me, are an extension of your personality and a great way to express yourself. When I first started woodcraft, I looked desperately for a go-to guide about the specific processes and exact tools required. The content I found online was total information overload and wasn't presented sequentially. The books were either focused on just a few processes or assumed that I already had the necessary information. Many of the books were also very dated. There are two ways of learning: learning from SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) with years of experience, and the other is to acquire from people who are just a few steps ahead of you in their journey. I fall into the latter group. I've spent five years on this hobby and am still learning from the experts. I still remember my initial doubts and the first tips that helped me. This book is for those who are still running their first lap (0-3 years) in wood-crafting and want to gain a holistic idea of the necessary processes and tools. I've included photographs of realistic beginner projects, and I'll explain the processes and standard operating procedures associated with them. Below are the topics you would find inside: · Introduction to Cabinet Making · Cabinet Types, Doors, and Drawers · Tools used and best practices · Process and Techniques · 10 Beginner Projects · Recap and Safety Tips · Conclusion and Free Online Resources In the last chapter, I've provided a link to free online resources for planning your next projects. Cheers, and let's start the exciting journey!

When Rude Osolnik was asked, "Rude, how do I become a good turner?" he replied, "Stand at the lathe." Well, that's the key! Of all the woodworking crafts I have practiced, Turning demands most patience and focus. As you start, you have to find your comfort zone with a lathe, chisels, and other tools. After some practice, your mind and body would get attenuated to the ecosystem of Turning. As lathe is involved and the wood item revolves fast, always remember that overconfidence and lack of focus are not options. So find your sweet spot of how long you can work at a stretch. When I first started woodcraft, I looked desperately for a go-to guide about the processes and tools I would need. The content I found online was total information overload and wasn't presented sequentially.

When Technology Fails

Authors: Matthew Stein

Type: BOOK - Published: 2008-08-18 - Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing

There’s never been a better time to “be prepared.” Matthew Stein’s comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe. When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You’ll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you’ve been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You’ll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. You’ll learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad. Fully revised and expanded—the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina, when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously—When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.
