I'm a hack that lives in Wisconsin. I like woodworking because it helps pass the long winter.
I'm self-taught, which explains my limited knowledge. I've been making simple furniture and cabinets for a long time, (out of necessity). I usually make face frame cabinets using a doweling jig and rabbeted joints. I'm trying to challenge myself by making more interesting projects using different joinery techniques.
I've been reading a lot on the forums and I'll be posting plenty of questions in the coming months. I really appreciate any advice I receive.

I started the prep for the assembly. I do not have a spray setup, nor do I want to try to learn how to do that at this time. I stained and varnished the pieces prior to assembly. The disadvantage is handling lots of loose parts. I also end up putt...
I’ve got the pieces for the tables all stained and varnished. Now I can assemble this puzzle. But first, I have to clean up the stray varnish from the tenons and other glue surfaces. So a bit of sanding, one more dry fit and then ...
The main project currently in my shop is my nesting tables. My wife and I have them stained. I working on varnishing. I’m using a wipe-on poly before assembly. It is time consuming and I can only do a few of the parts at a time. So, while I&...
A year ago I cleaned up my two planes. One was a Stanley block plane. The other was an Ace Hardrware knock-off that I had purchased a few years ago. They cleaned up well and are usable planes. After reading information here and on other sites I...
