I am a chemist by formal training and I am an associate professor of chemistry at Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN.

I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. My budget and space still only allows a benchtop style table saw, but I was able find a pretty good upgrade, in my opinion. I purchased a DeWalt benchtop saw. I really liked this saw because it has stand...
In my last post on this mantle clock project, I mentioned a new wood that I discovered at my local Woodcraft store…sipo utile. Here is how it looked when I started:This wood mills and works like a dream. Last weekend, I spent the afternoon m...
