Well here I go again adding additional improvements to the TS. Since I want the ability to move tools around the shop as needed I needed to add a mobile base. I came accross this design in “Shop Notes, Vol. 20, Issue 115. I like the way i...

Hi all. I’m a semi-retired National Park Service Maintenance employee. I do work 3, 4 hour days a week as a clerk in a large hardware store in Port Angeles, Washington. I do love this job. Helping people solve plumbing, electrical, DIY, Painting, and on and on, problems is a real hoot. I work with a great staff and surrounded by every new and neat tool you can think of. What could be better?
I have been working with wood and carpenter projects for several years. I have been collecting the main woodworking equipment for the last 10 years or so. Now it’s time to build a shop, so I can move ‘ALL MY STUFF’ out of my cold, damp, dark and low ceiling basement. I have submitted a building permit to the City of Port Angeles for a 24’X24’ Garage (actually a shop). My intent is to document the building of this shop with pictures and commentary. I’m building the shop myself with help from friends.
As for projects, I have a guitar, violin and a mountain dulcimer under construction as I type this. I have not touched any project for sometime now. I’ve got to complete these projects someday. I have made projects such as: Gun Rack (for my son), Collectible spoon display rack (for daughter-in-law), swing cradle and high chair (grandson), a wine bottle rack, a telephone table with drawer, and several other pieces of furniture (for my wife).
My pride and joy project is the guitar I built while living and working in Denali National Park, Alaska. Please see my Buddy Icon, and Project titled ‘Little Red Neck.’
I have really enjoyed visiting the Lumberjocks site, and seeing everyone’s projects and workshops. Keep up the good work.

I thought I would post a quick update. 1. I now have a Delta 36-T30 30” T2 Fence System on the way. I shopped online for the best price for this Fence System. The best deal I could find was from Tools Plus (http://www.tools-plus.com/) ...
This is my very first blog. I should have started this the day I brought this saw home. I’ll try to explain what’s going on. My little 10” contractor saw burned the motor up. The little saw was not worth replacing the motor. ...
