Well, my one year anniversary with lumberjocks went by a few weeks ago and I realized that one year or so ago was also the first time I decided to get into woodworking. I thought this would be a good time to start a blog that I can update once a year, and even if no one else reads it, it will be something I can sit down and look at each year to see just how much I have grown as a woodworker.
This year has really flown by, My woodworking this year has been dedicated to two main items
2) growing my shop space.
I have learned A LOT over the past year, and I have A LOT more to learn! I have sat up at night reading until i could read no more, surfing until I have run out of sites to surf, waiting and anticipating my favorite blogs, videos , and podcasts; and of course browsing LumberJocks!
I’ve spent quite a few hours in the shop with scrap pieces of wood, learning different techniques for cutting them, and learning to take my time and pay attention to details; I have some growing to do in the area of patience, and I’m sure that if wood working does not teach me this when I have kids it will be forced upon me :)
The shop has really grown; I’ve updated my shop profile with new pictures, and you can see a before and after slide show here:
Changes to the shop
out feed / assembly table
storage shelves along the back wall
rolling cabinet / planer stand
router table extension for the table saw
delta 13” 2 speed planer
porta cable pancake compressor and 3 nail gun set
ridgid spindal sander
ridgid shop vac
cabinet scrapers, rasps and files, router bits
Well that about wraps it up for this years entry, thanks to all of the friends I have made here so far for encouragement, advise, and the lumberjocks addiction!
