I live in a little town just outside of Indianapolis. All my children are raised and gone. I have always wanted to put up a small workshop so I can park my car in the garage where it belongs!

If I start making them for a stipen, then it becomes work and I just want to keep it a hobby. There is so much satisfaction in giving a gift from the heart rather then from the store!

If my name was Jim and I lived in Michigan, this would be the easy part but my name is Steve and I live in Indiana!! First thing is to drill a 5/16” centered hole through a 6” square piece of Cherry and turn it to 3/4 inch. Next...
I made some small but big progress today in the right areas. I set the main axle pegs in place today using my tapering tool. I drilled out the holes 1/8” smaller than the peg itself (3/8”) Using my tapering tool, the top of the...
