I really enjoy home projects, especially woodworking projects. I guess my interest in woodworking began by taking woodshop classes in Jr High, and by watching and working with my Dad.

My stationary power tools currently include a Craftsman table saw, bench grinder, and my Dad's old radial arm saw. And of course, many portable power hand tools.

I am currently in the process of building my new workshop. Due to various limitations, it is only about 10' x12', but I have the added convenience of using my big 2-car garage when added space is needed.

I began my workshop thinking it would just be a place to keep the mower -- nothing fancy. But somehow it evolved to become an insulated (paratially), well built, weathertight, little building (kind of a Tim Allen thing). To keep within code requirements for exterior height, I built it with a lower ceiling. It is vaulted however, so it doesnt seem lowered. The problem with that was when I added the door, I had to either order a custom made door, or ..... I was fortunate to find one at an building recycling center that accepts house parts and resells them to the public.

Life is fun!

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
