From Rob's Bench:

Yuri Kobayashi’s favourites

Breathe – I Hear You
In my first “Ask the Artist” column I talked with Yorgo Liapis, who mentioned his favourite internationally made piece was “Being” by Yuri Kobayashi. I contacted Yuri, who was pleased to hear Yorgo loves not only her work, but her work ethic and willingness to help others.
Hand Tools:


If the thought of carving seems a bit too daunting, you might want to give whittling a try. Carving is about shaping a piece of wood –typically into some preconceived design – with a variety of knives, chisels, gouges, rasps and files. Whittling is also about shaping a piece of wood, but with less of a focus on con­forming to any preconceived design and mostly with a knife.

How to replace an old window

How to Replace an Old Window
Upgrading an old window can be a great way to improve the look of your home, and help keep heating and cooling bills down.

For this project, the author had two identical window openings with old Pearson-style sliding windows that needed upgrading. The first step was to decide on what they would be replaced with, and he settled on a basic white vinyl framed window from North Star.
