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! I like to make and design Arts and Crafts projects. I do not sell anything, I make things to give away as gifts. 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!

After a few days out on the road working my “Real” job, I was able to get back in the shop and complete the spindle shaft. It is made up from taking a 3/8” brass tube and slowly file an orifice in it. This is where the wool will ...
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...
