Location: Florissant, Missouri
I live in historic Florissant, Missouri. Florissant is in St.Louis County & on the Muddy Missouri River just upstream of the Mighty Mississippi River.
I've been interested in woodworking since I was about 15. I have too many hobbies & try to combine my hobbies to make interesting & useful projects.
And Please... If anyone has questions about how I may have done something or other... or about something that doesn't show in the photos or descriptions... feel free to send a message. I would be happy to share ideas with everyone!

GARYK warned me that I would have to come up with some kind of better filter system for my window A/C unit because of the sawdust. Man was he right! Here’s photos of what I came up with… Here’s the stock filter. We use this...
I’ve started puting in the trim work. And after giving a bit of thought to what kind of trim.., I decided to keep it simple & cheap. If I would get too elaborate with the trim I would find myself cleaning sawdust out of many nooks &...
