I am retired from the FDNY and missing it. My family has been in the trades for as long as I can remember. My father was a carpenter, his brother was a Master Craftsman, he also when in the Navy in WWII built PT boats. The most famous was PT109. He went on to build custom houses. I have cousins and uncles that are electricians, plumbers etc... From working with them I learned various trades.
I now repair antique furniture for some dealers on LI. It breaks my heart but most of these pieces get painted so they sell faster. As a woodworker that drives me nuts.
I started in Jr. high school taking various shop classes and continue to educate myself whenever I can. That includes learning from other woodworkers like yourselves. I am still trying to turn my garage into the shop I want but not there yet, but getting closer.

This is a basic explanation of what an ERV or an air exchanger is and how it might be used in a woodworking environment. What happens is it takes a portion of the inside air and exhausts it outside. At the same time it takes the outside air and b...
I have been reading and commenting recently about shop air filtration and the concern for it. My decision to write this was to give the LJ’s community some facts about air filtration. Let me start with my knowledge base. I started my own air...
