I gave up an office job 4 years ago, 32 years of office work, sitting in cubical for the last 25 years. Like most full time workers, I had very little time for hobbies. Between many overtime hours and home responsibilities there wasn't much left.
But thats all over now. So I now have the privilage of working in the shop. The first year of retirement I needed to remodel the 55 year old garage that was falling down, full of nests and in need of some serious expansion for my tools, etc. I had most of my tools in storage for 12 years because I had no place to work. Since 09 I have been back now full time in the shop. It is in many ways the best thing I could have done.
Its hard to live on 1/3 of what I was making. but the tradeoff for me is worth it. I live in a 600 sq. ft. house and now have a 1300 sq. ft. shop.
I started a model of a cathedral years ago now I'm going to bring in out of storage. I am doing the structure in hardwood. Maple, oak, and walnut.

The objective here is to have 1 1/2” of leveling adjustability as well as being able to transport table on casters. The way I decided to do this was to have ladder casters extend downward with toggle clamps during transit. For the sma...
Initially the concept was to surround the model with railing that took on the shape of the cathedral. So I extended the lines of geometry to the surrounding railing. This gave me a starting point. The first plan was drawn in 1980. This is w...
The plan is to fabricate 3 levels of table top to support the model. The center elevation will be 2” thick and consist of 16 sections shown here All sections in this level will be keyed off of the rails shown on the primary table ...
Here is an example of a solid model done with cad (autocad). This is what typically is done when I start a new project. I design the part using core solids. Once the design is complete there are several steps needed to be done before code can ...
