Here I am, finally on Lumberjocks! I thought I would introduce myself by sharing a video of me working on my current project, a Shaker style six drawer dresser in walnut. This is becoming my typical style of woodworking over the last year. I mill lumber in the barn with a jointer, a planer and a table saw and then move to the Cottage Workshop where I slow things down, using hand tools and traditional techniques to join parts together. This ia also my first time-lapse video made with the Gawker program, available as a free download here

I have more projects and updates here on my blog site…

Please, feel free to visit and leave some comments and suggestions. I’d love to hear from you!

Thanks Lumberjocks! Great to be here!

great video, you got all the basics in there very nicely – milling, organizing the lumber, and the glueup – very helpful.

very nice setup of the cottage as well. looking forward to more content :) and Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Thanks for the comments!
About the beer…
I definitely DO NOT imbibe before or during the use of power tools. No beer in the barn.
However, I do enjoy a good beer when I’m in the cottage planing away. Yet another reason to love hand tools!
