We’ve stopped creating. When was the last time you built something…from scratch? Maybe Shop class in High School? Maybe an evening pottery course that you got off of Groupon? I’d wager that most of us would be hard-pressed to remember the last time that we undertook a project where we had to think of a […]

Today we are honored with some gentlemanly insight from James Niehaus of Perfect Cuts & Miters. He has a wellspring of wisdom in woodworking and crafting projects built from raw materials. I have a great amount of respect for anyone with this kind of experience and passion, so when James contacted the Modern Day Gentlemen […]
There are chapters in any gentlemen’s life that can be looked back on as seasons of growth. Circumstances and situations that all seem to culminate together to form rich lessons that inevitably become the “stuff” that our world views are made out of. As many of you know all too well, those seasons are often […]
"Ever since I was young, I’ve been passionate about crafting. To share my passion with ya’ll, I decided to create Woodwork Boss as a creative outlet where I share my experiences and knowledge with fellow woodworking enthusiasts. I believe this is a hobby that everybody can start and I will do my best to share some information to help you out with your woodworking journey."
Today, we have the great honor of hearing from one of the fine gentlemen over at WoodWorkBoss.com. Several weeks back, Paul Moore reached out to me stating that he had read one of our previous articles, “It Is More Important To Be Kind, Than It Is To Be Right“, and that he thought he could […]
I am, of course, not the first to tell you that we live in a world full of distraction. As a modern day gentleman, you are, no doubt, very keenly aware of the frivolousness of so much of what demands our time and attention. Yet still somehow we find ourselves constantly in a place of […]
The Christmas season is upon us! You can feel it in the air! Admittedly, I love the “hustle and bustle” of the holidays as much as anyone else. It’s fun to see people out-and-about, shopping for loved ones and attending seasonal events. As much as we talk about “slowing down” in this blog, it’s important […]
We are more than half of the way through 2016 at this point, and most of you inevitably feel some measure of exhaustion. We move at an alarmingly fast rate in our world today, and if we aren’t constantly intentional to take a step back from the whirlwind, we can find ourselves looking up in […]

The ninety dedicated and fully trained musicians gather around the conductor. Each artist on stage has invested years to master his craft. They made this investment with the goal of working with others to give birth to something truly beautiful. Listening to the symphony is not just appreciating a moment in time – it is […]
In this week’s article, I have no significant idea to share with you, or weighty proposition to wager. What I have to share is not revolutionary or ground-breaking. In fact, it’s rather mundane and ordinary. In our last few articles we’ve focused on some heavy and challenging topics. We talked about living as a modern […]
Spring, such a beautiful and tumultuous time in Colorado. Finally it is warm enough to smoke outside, provided the weather holds and we don’t get snow tomorrow. And since smoking outside is the only option open to my friends and I, this is an exciting time indeed. Already the idea has been broached, “Let’s go […]
