The Daily Skep isn’t meant to be esoteric. It is meant to be honest.
This is a creative space for contemplating the intersections between creativity and creation. It is intended as a vehicle of observation and comment, of exploration and reflection, of trying and failing and learning and trying again. A place where a community of craftspeople can contemplate what it means to be human and why we want to make things with our hands. It is meant to find the points of overlap with the greater tradition and with others interested in the craft of working wood.
If you have a question to raise or a comment to share, welcome to the hive.
My name is Jim McConnell and I’m a husband, father, student of life and chronic tinkerer currently based in Eastern North Carolina where I lead a church and learn something new practically every day. I build furniture and do some freelance editing as a content editor for Mortise & Tenon Magazine. I keep the Skep because I truly believe that creating a virtual guild of makers, doers and dreamers, can be an important and effective way to share ideas and information about the work we all love so much.

Same goes if you’re interested in stopping by the workshop, having a conversation, or grabbing a cup of coffee sometime.
