Everyone needs bluebird houe plans.
Barn Plans Dano draws a pretty barn, and he’ll answer your questions while you build it. Why pay a draftsman $2000 to do the same thing?
NIMBY. Rent art space here - they’ve got a 23,000 sq/ft steel building with a bunch of containers in it. They rent to artists and throw great parties. Lots of burning man things get made here.
College of the redwoods fine woodworking program is where James Krenov used to teach. They do amazing work.
Prairie Designs sells detailed stained glass plans for replicating Frank Lloyd Wright’s “light screens“. I can’t speak too highly of his work - he has visited these windows in person, and his dimensions reflect Wright’s original intentions. The legal mumbo jumbo about the plans being “based on” Wright’s designs keeps the lawyers at bay. He also can sell some of the orignial materials required to make these windows.
College of the Redwoods bibliography. I made a project of buying and reading every book on this list. Some were hard to find!
Proscale makes digital gauges that can be retrofit to most woodworking tools. Their prices are reasonable.
Earthsource (aka PALS) is where I buy almost all of my wood. They’re close by my workshop, great folks, good prices, and they stock sustainable products.
Jurgen industries makes glass paints, useful for lighting projects.
Hettich, high end cabinet hardware, including hinges, drawer slides, folding door hardware. Their IW21 drawer slide pretty much rocks - you don’t see it (no ugly metal bits on the side of your drawer), it’s silent, and it’s full extension. That means that when you pull it out, the back of the drawer clears the cabinet front. Nice stuff.
