I'm a woodworker/ putterer and tool collecter. I always design my new project around the next tool I want to buy.
I retired in May of 2012, and moved to Arizona where my wife and have just built our dream shop, with a killer sewing room in the back portion, on our property.
I have posted a few of my projects on LJ's with warm responses.
I like working with reclaimed stock, and harvested "down and dead" material as often as I can.

Thank you for welcoming me to this wonderful online community.

I am learning by trial and error how to sharpen my chisels. I have not been successful at doing a good job at it. I bought a couple of books about it and I am getting better but I guess that I would need a lot of practice. If you have any advice for me I would greatly appreciate it.

I like your projects and if you don’t mind I am taking inspiration from your clamp rack project. I am adding to my clamps and very soon I would require proper storage. When I build one I will post it. Thank you again.

Ok Grizzman,
I will post shop photo’s soon … I now think I know how to do it … I’m a low tech guy in a high tech world … and I am very proud of the new shop.

oh that is great, i look forward to seeing your shop, have you seen mine, when it was new i had lots of room, but now after 17 years, i have wood in there everywhere…one day after i am no longer here…my children will have my shop to deal with…and its years of wood collecting..i wont get rid of any unless someone gave me the right price…right now besides all the wood i have gotten from old homes and even another woodworkers stash, i have about 400 BF of walnut drying..its all 1 1/4 thick, 8 feet long and some are 12 inches wide…i will let this dry until april, it should be ready to use by then…walnut is my favorite hardwood, southern yellow pine is my favorite softwood…i look forward to seeing your shop.
