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! I've a few tools with the most recent acquisition being a General 1.5 hp dust collector. It sure beats the old broom and pan. I am probably way to excited by this tool...it is extremely fun to use and I've collected piles of sawdust already.

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...
