I am a framer by trade but have been building houses for the past nine years. I have always enjoyed woodworking and now I have a little more time to spend in the garage. I have two boys that have shown some interest in woodworking also. Our shop is in the garage for now but I hope to build us a stand alone shop soon. We are quickly out growing the garage.

Last hunting season I found a nice big cherry burl on a dead tree that was still standing. We had our camp work day this past weekend so I cut down the burl while I was there. I already had a nice cherry log that my neighbor gave me about t...
I finally put together my first howto video on framing! It explains how to figure rafter length and layout. I gotta say that it was a lot harder to do than I thought it would be. I’m going to make another video or two on the subject because ...
This is really just for me to practice putting a video together. I just got my new camera in the mail and was really wanting to try it out so, I just shot a couple of clips of what I have been working on lately. I am planning on putting some how-t...
One day after an unproductive morning hunt, with my youngest son I came across this burl on the way back to camp. I have been seeing them all over this new club we joined this year and decided this one was small enough to experiment with. It is ab...
