Have been doing woodworking off and on since I was a kid but recently have been able to start setting up a shop in the second bay of the garage! Have been blessed with a good income so acquiring tools has been a lot of fun....now finding the time to use them is a whole 'nuther kettle of fish. As much as I enjoy woodworking spending time with family and friends takes precedence and then there is that whole needing to work for a living thing that seems to take up a whack of time :-) Mind you the kids are getting old enough to enjoy spending time in the shop so that's pretty cool!

I’ve been wanting to build a bench for a long time now. My brother bought me a LV large vise quite awhile ago which had been the major money stumbling block at the time. Well life happens and I never built the bench. I have been using an old...
Just before Christmas we had a warm spell pushed on by an Alberta Clipper it was about 4 degrees Celsius when normally it is -15 or thereabouts. The last several days we’ve seen -38 with -53 windchills…I love winter but even that is a...
Making the sail was an ideal time to overly complicate and over think the process… But I resisted my instinctive need to make things hard and just went with Shorty’s recommended measures and used two tape measures to define the sha...
The partner and step line up nicely. I had a bit of a surprise when I discovered the mast was a bit thicker further up and would not fit through the partner. A bit of work with the block plane and all was good. There is a bit of reinfor...
