I'm a forester and entomologist by trade. I've been wanting to get into woodworking for a long time, and took the plunge when my father in law gave us his pristine Millers Falls/Langdon Acme mitre box with Disston saw.

I'm impressed with all the skill and knowledge shared through this website, and hope to contribute much in the future. All I need is time.

I’ve been (very) slowly plugging away at my workbench here and there. I think I finally have made enough progress for another post. I noticed that the 2×6 that I had for my last leg was pretty twisted and knotty. I glued it up to see...
My office building where I work is upgrading their HVAC system, and the new equipment was delivered packed in long crates. The wood was going to be scrapped so I loaded up my hatchback and brought it home. Now I figure I have to make a proper work...
