I have always been interested in woodworking and have played with it for many years, mostly what I would classify as rough projects. Those being things such as play forts, fences, some trim work, and such in which joinery isn't that critical. Last year I got a Kreg pocket hole kit and built a free standing cabinet for my Mom which I guess was my first real piece of furniture.
This year I built a bathroom vanity and am now engaged in building an oak entertainment center in the mission style of my design. I am writing a blog on this sight discussing it's construction. I am self taught and this entertainment center has numerous first in, a true learning experience!

I have been doing other things of late to enable more work on the EC such as building a box for the new PC dovetail jig per Shopnotes, and other such diversions. I decided however that it was time to get back after the EC and having overcome, I th...
Crap, now the time has come to cut the tenons. The jig I have built has 4 holes in it so you can cut both sides of the tenon at the same time, I wrestle with getting the second hole placed for a ¼ inch tenon, it takes more time to get right than I...
Mortise and tenon joints just scare the dickens out of me, the fit requires perfection. Joinery is the epitome of craftsmanship, at least in my book, oh sure down the road with more experience I will probably determine something else to hold in su...
