Hi Bob,

Welcome to L.J.

I am a big fan of your books. About half of my projects are from the Shop Drawing Series and I am forever building my kitchen cabinets using your Cabinet Book.

Keep up the good work.

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.

God Bless

Bob, I was hoping to see some pictures of your workshop. I see that you have had a nice career in woodworking. Congratulations!!! I left a tab open in Firefox on your craftsmanplans web site and will check it out later. Thanks for the dovetail saw advice. I’ll get back to my shop now. I appreciate the info.
