I am an amature woodworker that is learning in leaps and bounds(and a lot of stumbles) I work in architectural salvage for a longtime friend. I have access to lots of salvaged wood, moldings and miscellaneous wooden parts that I love to re-purpose and make a little extra cash. My shop is an 18 x 18 portion of our smaller warehouse. I'm not fully equipped as yet, but my shop is always evolving. Even if I don't have what I need, I find a way, build a jig, or well, flat out beat it into submission. If you are stubborn enough, you can make anything happen.

I’ve been looking for a band saw for quite a while now. I’ve shopped new, searched Craigslist and Ebay, drooled over some, scoffed at others. Trying to find a good buy for my money is not a very easy thing to do. I’m always at le...
Instead of flying my stepson to his father’s house in Florida, we decided to make it a family vacation and take the whole crew on a road trip(what were we thinking?!). On our way from Florida to my sister’s place in NC, the transmissio...
First I’d like to say that I LOVE Tom Waits. You may have noticed my signature, this is where it’s from. On some points of this I can relate. My shop is in a bit of a ghetto neighborhood and I get a lot of looks from people around ther...
