Website:

I started working wood three years ago. I have since built a wall desk which folds down, two regular work tables and a router table based on a George Vondriska article on outfeed tables, and a tool cabinet.

My wife and I disagree over what to call the place where I work. I call it my workshop; she calls it the garage. She also parks her car in my workshop. But she's a sweet lady and so it all works out.

One thing you'll notice: I've taken a liking to making do with what I have. A table saw would have taken up too much space in the shop. Besides, I've heard and read too many horror stories about kickbacks, missing anatomical parts, and one-eyed jocks. So I use either a circ saw or a band saw in place of the table saw.

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. The other day I was looking in one of my old woodworking books and saw some neat jigs for a circular saw. Have fun in your workshop/her garage and work safe.

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
