I do a few projects around the property. The winters are quite harsh so I have bought a band saw and i am looking for ideas and projects what to make with it.
Recently discovered that i like making knife handles.
Hopefully i will find some fun things to make and make some beer money as well.
The work I have seen on this website has been amazing.
I hope to learn a little from everyone..
