Thanks for the Welcome gentleman! I’m fairly new to the home woodworking experience. In my younger days, I worked in a moulding dept in California. It’s where safety first was driven home. I did learn that whole milk will save a finger. Learned that kick back can be deadly, moulding blades spin faster than the eye can see when they leave the machine, forklifts don’t necessarily rip limbs off but can put a bone at such an angle that Picasso would be proud, and fires in the hopper are not fun when you’re tailing off at the ripsaw. I also learned “if it doesn’t feel safe don’t do it” does not apply to a multi million dollar lumber company’s bottom line.

Built my first project in 1969, a whelping box for the dog. It was square (sort of) and it was heavy. I didn’t know how to rip a board but sometimes mistakes are pure genius! The higher sides went to the back and the lower sides to the front. She used it, so I guess it passed muster. Once the pups got a bit bigger, flipped the box around and save another week or two.

I still have the hammer that my father taught me to use, it was his father’s or so the Blarney story goes. Just never can tell with that man :) But the hammer always brings a smile to my frustration and it’s already broken in! Dad also taught me that you can’t have the first beer until you’re done for the day, you’ve earned it or it’s noon, and it’s usually noon somewhere in the world. God Bless the Irish!

The electrician was here today to give an estimate on my humble shop. 16 X24. I finally get to move out of the cellar. I’ll have four lights over head, outlets every four feet and one in the middle for the table saw, couple lights for the outside…and at my age with the humidity – I wish for air conditioning! One thing about the cellar, it always stayed cool. As soon as the electric goes in, I’ll start putting up the insulation and the the T&G strip maple flooring that if I told you what I paid for it, you’d cry :) The flooring will take a good while, there may not be any projects until winter.

Again thanks for the warm welcome, I look forward to learning from all of you :)

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
