I'm a hobiest 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 I plan to build our dream shop with a killer sewing room on our property. Right now I'm working in a two car garage with half of my stuff still in boxes. (Color me frustrated.)
I have been reading LJ,s for a while now and intend to post some small projects.
I like working with reclaimed stock, and harvested "down and dead" material as ofter 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.

-- Mario, Trinidad,
